    I am of the opinion that the Libyan army should be hit because Gaddafi and his gang deserve this. For me, we must go further, that is to say help the population to conquer power by driving out Gaddafi who think that Libya is for him and his family.
    Libyans need freedom. I encourage you. Don't worry about the puppets who think the strikes should stop, where was he when Gaddafi was killing the Libyans. They are simply afraid because Gaddafi does everything for them. But this time it's over. Africans have woken up long live Africa, live the African revolution.
    The same remains to be done for Laurent Badgbo who is still thinking about it.

    Thank you France, thank you the UN, thank you the international community.
