On June 17, Reuters said thousands rallied in Tripoli for Gaddafi waving green national flags. Video, in fact, showed massive Green Square crowds, expressing solidarity and support, while denouncing NATO's terror bombing. 

Earlier in June, journalist/activist Lizzie Cocker reporting on the ground from Tripoli said:

"One million people marched in support of Brother Leader Colonel Gaddafi in Tripoli in response to Al Jazeera reports that there would be anti-Gaddafi protests after Friday prayers. Their aims were:

1. To show the world that the Libyans are against the invasion.

2. To show that the Libyan people support their legitimate government, legitimate power of the tribes and their leader Moammar Gaddafi.

3. To show support for the Libyans living in Benghazi," being terrorized by mercenary cutthroats, murdering anti-NATO residents and gang-raping women for sport, what Western media won't report.

Speaking for many, one angry Libyan said:

"Who are these countries to dictate who our leader should or should not be. We will pick our own leader. We ask for a vote. Let us vote and then you will see who should be our leader," adding Libyans won't tolerate NATO dictating to them, imposing their puppet leader, and plundering the country of its resources and material wealth.
