>Africa File: Chaos in Libya: Troops kill 200 protesters, some soldiers defect to anti-regime forces, Qaddafi reportedly flees to Venezuela

>Pictured here: On February 21, 2011, two Libyan Air Force colonels defected to Malta after refusing to attack anti-regime protesters. They made their getaway in state property: two Mirage fighter jets.

The revolutionary wave that has engulfed the Arab world since January crashed over Libya this past week. Long-time Soviet ally Muammar al-Qaddafi’s four-decade socialist dictatorship is tottering on collapse.

BBC has reported that automatic gunfire and tear gas have been fired at demonstrators in Tripoli and some government buildings have been burned to the ground.

– Qaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam, warned on state TV that a “civil war” was imminent. “There is a plot against Libya,” said Saif, citing that “an Islamic group with a military agenda” was behind the turmoil.

– The US State Department said it is “gravely concerned with disturbing reports and images coming out of Libya.”

– Two Libyan air force colonels defect, fly Mirage fighter jets to Malta after refusing to attack protesters.

Arab League demands end of violence in Libya as mutinous soldiers fight and defeat Qaddafi’s elite guards.

Armed rebels attack Suncor oil rig in Libya, three Canadian and dozens of other oil workers flee into desert.

– Qaddafi himself appeared on state television on Tuesday morning, insisting that he was somewhere in Tripoli and not in Venezuela, as reported by Al-Arabiya.

    >It seems like the Kremlin run Russia Today is indeed running Alex Jones' lies into stating the Bilderberg group is behind the mess in Libya and in the rest of the Middle East:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXiTuxqRk2YBut if the Bilderberg group were Jewish, why would they want to help out those who'd want to destroy Israel? Aside from that, I think the Bilderberg group was doing the opposite in HELPING Gaddafi keep his regime afloat…but don't tell Alex Jones or Russia Today that……it seems Alex Jones is indeed working to help the enemy of his country, even make up an absurd lie like this…

    >Aside from Alex Jones and Russia Today being the backers of Colonel Gaddafi…members of the white supremacist group known as Stormfront.org are in morning:http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t781486/Oddly enough they praised the end of Hosni Mubarak's regime because these hypocrites knew the Muslim Brotherhood would be a threat to Israel's security…but no…not Gaddafi…
