Gaddafi again threatens to attack Europe with suicide bombers

From David Zucchino, the Los Angeles Times:  For the second time in a week, Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi has threatened to dispatch hundreds of Libyan suicide bombers to attack targets in Europe in retaliation for NATO strikes against his regime.

"Hundreds of Libyans will martyr in Europe," Kadafi said late Friday in a defiant speech before thousands of Libyans in Tripoli’s Green Square. "I told you it is eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth. . . ."

Kadafi first threatened to attack Europe in a recorded message played at a rally July 1 in Tripoli. He warned Europeans that Libyan attackers would "target your homes, offices and families, which would become legitimate targets. . . ."

"He’s just bragging," spokesman [for Libya’s National Transition Council] Mohammed Kesh said. "If he could do it, he would have done it already without talking about it."  (photo: Getty)
