Kadhafi says ready for 'sacrifice' to defeat rebels

Nov 30, -0001
TRIPOLI: Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi on Wednesday said he was ready for "sacrifice" to defeat NATO and the rebels who are trying to unseat him, in an audio message to his loyalists.
"We are not afraid. We will defeat them," the Libyan strongman said of the NATO alliance and the insurgents.
"We will pay the price with our lives, our women and our children. We are ready to sacrifice (ourselves) to defeat the enemy," he added in a message to loyalists in the town of Zaltan near the Tunisian border.
Kadhafi also called on his partisans to march on the rebel-held Nafusa mountainous region, southwest of the Libyan capital Tripoli, and called on his opponents to surrender.
"Traitors, surrender your weapons... Choose: death or surrender," Kadhafi told the rebels, adding that without support from NATO the insurgents could not have seized the strategic mountainous region.
Rebels are using the Nafusa as a springboard for their advance on the Libyan capital to overthrow Kadhafi's regime. AGENCIES
