Ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi on Thursday said leaders of the developing world who recognized Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) would suffer a similar fate. "If the power of (international) fleets give legitimacy, then let the rulers in the Third World be ready," he said.
He made the comments in an audio recording onSyria-based Arrai television. "To those who recognize this council, be ready for the creation of transitional councils imposed by the power of fleets to replace you one by one from now on," he said.
The fugitive ruler also urged Libyans to take to the streets, adding conditions in Libya were "unbearable". "I urge all Libyan people to go out and march in their millions in all the squares, in all the cities and villages and oases," Gaddafi said. "Go peacefully ... be courageous, rise up, go to the streets, raise our green flags to the skies," he added.
