“plan c”

A group of 100 rebels was fighting a population of 550,000 people in Misrata, Qaddafi’s son said, while “at most” 200 to 300 “terrorists” were controlling a region with more than 2 million people in Libya. He said the population can’t defend itself because the average citizen doesn’t have a gun.

Tripoli, where half of Libya’s population lives, is under control and is completely “normal,” the younger Qaddafi said. Benghazi, the second-largest city, where many of the demonstrations have centered, is “total chaos,” lawless and uncontrolled, he said. Beyda and Derna have declared independent “emirates” led by Islamic terrorists, he said.

… He said 242 people have died so far in the unrest, most of them young people provoked to attack an army barracks in Benghazi. Libyans have been pleading with the regime to help them get rid of those behind the revolt, he said. He said the Qaddafis would never leave Libya.

“We have Plan A, Plan B and Plan C,” he said. “Plan A is to live and die in Libya. Plan B is to live and die in Libya. Plan C is to live and die in Libya.”

Gaddafi holds no official government post but is considered his father’s most trusted political envoy. Another new measure he revealed was a scheme to give every new-born Libyan child a sum of money deposited in a bank to pay for education and health care.

“That amount of money will allow children to live without the help of their parents,” he said.
