A Wounded Gaddafi Vows National Defense

beware historical lessons of fatal North African sands
whole armies are swallowed in conflict in hostile lands
history taught well this region lessons of sly desert fox
Rommel most dangerous in retreat enemy armies shocks
Libya Gaddafi pride wounded animal seeks prey to attack
forces mixed among civilians hides from crusader missiles
Gaddafi claims to sand storm absorb invading NATO plans
scorpion waits in hot desert under covers in boots to attack
