In an early-morning radio address on Wednesday, Muammar Qaddafi committed himself to either "martyrdom or victory" in the battle against Libyan rebel forces and NATO. The besieged dictator, who many believe is hiding out somewhere in Tripoli, also referred to his abandonment of the Bab al-Aziziya compound as a "tactical move." Government spokesman Musa Ibrahim echoed his boss's pledge, saying that Libya was to become "burning volcano and a fire under the feet of the invaders" while claiming that 6,000 pro-Qaddafi volunteer soldiers had recently arrived in the country.
