Analyst Ilana Freedman, CEO of the Gerard Group, predicts that Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi will “fall within a matter of days.” The latest developments explain why. She says that demonstrations have now spread to western Libya and Tripoli.
The demonstrators have taken over Qaddafi’s palace in Benghazi, which is where the snipers were stationed. The security building has also been seized and others are being swarmed right now, it’s being reported.
The regime has been forced to hire “many hundreds of African mercenaries” at $30,000 each that have been authorized to use brute force.
