by both rebels and gadhafi loyalists the security council has also agreed to release one point five billion dollars in libyan assets to help deal with the humanitarian needs the opposition continues to claim the tripoli is largely under its control while the national transitional council says it's moved from its stronghold of benghazi to the capital meanwhile the pentagon monitoring and libyan sites contending stockpiles of chemical weapons is pledging to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands it's toward the arsenals include tons of mustard gas. as our ports it's causing concern with some rebel factions are said to have been infiltrated by islamic extremists. tripoli a city in chaos there's constant gunfire both aggressive and celebration and on the outskirts of the capital stockpiles of chemical weapons nature you know very little about the people who might come to power in tripoli so now if you've got this cache

of weapons of mass destruction that again people really don't know what's there and if this is falling into the hands of certain people i mean the situation is potentially disastrous despite the heavy presence of rebels in tripoli the chemical stockpile appears still to be in the hands of what's left of gadhafi government that's both good and bad news following a series of meetings in two thousand and three moammar gadhafi agreed to allow weapons inspectors into libya the first step towards abandoning his w m d program in return for a normalizing of relations with the u.k. and u.s. they agree that he wouldn't use all move the material but now thanks in part to nato support of the rebels he's on the back foot and may feel he has nothing to lose by disregarding that agreement cry victory or martyrdom will strike an ominous note to the. you know with his weapons potential given the violations of
6:03 am
the national territory of libya by needle led rebel forces i think that the idea that he would be beholden to these types of agreements would be off the table at this point and certainly he was quoted as saying in early july that he would be willing to strike out europe if tripoli was attacked so i think it's a fair assumption to say that if there is that capability that he would be looking at that option at this point it at any rate but the alternative rebel control of chemical weapons is arguably worse according to many some of the rebel factions have links to al qaida or of commentator abdel bari atwan says the west got itself into this trouble now it has to decide how it will figure it out and the options aren't attractive we know that the majority of the people who are fighting muslim extremists so how that the two is going to be with those people are about the movement of chemical i believe their posts would be more proper i'm i think than

that. if you there are some indications nato is considering putting peacekeeping troops on the ground in libya regional experts warn that could be seen by parts of the free libya movement as an act of aggression but having supported the rebel movement nato must now deal with the consequences even if that's w m d armed islamic extremists. and there are reports of heavy resistance by the forces with the colonel's whereabouts still unknown maybe you could offer another radio message claiming he's fighting on the front line that he was denied previous reports that it's assisting the rebels in the hunt to find him but journalist and broadcaster neil clark says the use of dissent from action by all sides is a whole mark of the conflict. what is very clear is happening here is the rebels are trying to teach this to the international audience and trying to make out there in complete control of the country that gadhafi is finished the war is basically
6:05 am
over and that everyone supports them the situation is far more complex than that it's a very very divided society along tribal lines and the gadhafi regime which was secular did manage to hold the country together for a long period and now we're going to see tribal warfare break out and it's very clear that he still has lots of support if you in the west is of course that does he have no support and then everybody behind the opposition but it isn't true what nato has done here basically is transform a situation where there was demonstrations against the regime there into a full scale civil war and i don't hold the line that nato is needed really then anymore the western powers who. really want to get their money back and they want to get money they want to profits this whole enterprise what about humanitarian intervention that was entirely bogus this was all about talking. and installing a new regime we would hand out the contracts to western companies and would be much
