Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi has told state TV that Osama Bin Laden and his followers are to blame for the protests wracking his country.

In a phone call from the town of al-Zawiya played live on TV, Col Gaddafi said young people were being duped with drugs and alcohol to take part in "destruction and sabotage".

Col Gaddafi is battling to shore up control of Tripoli and western areas.

Protesters have been consolidating gains in cities in the east.
'This is your country'

The telephone call was said to be an address to the people of al-Zawiya, 50km (30 miles) west of the capital, where there has been renewed gunfire reported in the streets.

Col Gaddafi said the protesters had no genuine demands and were being dictated to by the al-Qaeda leader.

He said that Libya was not like Egypt and Tunisia, which have seen their leaders deposed, because the people of Libya had it in their own hands to change their lives through committees.

"This is your country and it is up to you how to deal with it," he said.

He called on families to rein in their sons, saying many of the protesters were underage and beyond the reach of the law.

But he also vowed that those carrying out violent protests should be put on trial.

Pretty sure in the distant future, there's going to be a graduate student in psychology that's gonna earn his PHD writing a dissertation on the mental issues this guy has.

He does have some issues, including his fetish for pitching tents in the middle of the city and calling for Switzerland to be dissolved, but shutting down his nuclear program was a pretty smart move...

So it's Al Qaeda, the CIA and the Zionists. He forgot about the Freemasons.

Why is he still a colonel after 40 years in power? You would think he would have given himself a promotion by now to Grand Poobah or something like that.
