Why would anyone think he would act otherwise? Look how he came to power and how he has maintained his grip on power all these years. It wasn't by being everyone's favourite Uncle.Libya Latest: Up To 200 Die As Libyan Authorities Arrest 'Network Of Foreign Agents' | World News | Sky News
Looks like Gadaffi isn't going to let protestors get their way....
Not surprising in the least. It will be interesting to see how the political map of North Africa and the Middle East looks in 6 months time though.Why would anyone think he would act otherwise?

I agree, it's possible that we may be approaching a tipping point of sorts for regimes across the mid-east now that Libyans and Iranians have taken to the streets. These are arguably the two most repressive regimes in the region. It will be interesting to see what happens next in say Syria or Saudi Arabia (both equally equally repressive/reactionary) or even Jordan, one of the more 'enlightened' mid-east countries. Personally, I am not expecting much to happen in any of these, though they all have the same underlying problems; a very young population, high youth unemployment, corruption etc.Not surprising in the least.

Gadfafi a stodge of western Imperialism? er....no, and quite happy to play the Islamic card when it suits.its the way that the dictatorial regimes and their western backers are trying to blame it on islamism - they are sectarian in nature as the people have had enough of western interference and oil based war mongering.
One gets buggered in Egypt and they've all gone yeller-belly.And even odder, you'd have thought all those brave journalists would be queuing up to enter the Peoples' State illegally to take any risk to bring us the un-spun news, but no, relying on youtube and anyone they can grab off the street.....journalists cnuts the lot of them
Didn't Sky News have some newsreel of "Gadaffi" joining the protests earlier in the week, apparently he was filmed riding around on the front of a truck, showing what a man of the people he really was. I wonder how many body doubles the cowardly "colonel" has?One things for certain the Gadaffi don't **** around...
