Things you don't know about Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi

Muammar Gaddafi always travels with the famed all female Amazonian Guards...

His personal bodyguards consists of 40 armed-ready to die virgins combatants. The guards consist of mainly Cuban women, ready to combat men at any costs, expert in sharp-shooting and expert in handling UZI or Kalashnikov submachine guns.

However, the veteran Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is now under pressure after thousands of Libyans across Tripoli, Benghazi and Tobruk are demanding for his resignation and removal as long time leader of Libya.

However Defiant Gaddafi vows to fight on!! He wants to fight his own people!!! And kill them???

In televised speech 23rd February 2011, Libyan leader blames youths inspired by regional events for uprising and vows to die a 'martyr'.

Here.. there are few things that the general public doesn't know about Gaddafi.

According to leaked US documents and cables released by Wikileaks in November 2010, Gadaffi fears flying over water, prefers staying on the ground floor and almost never travels without his trusted Ukrainian nurse, a "voluptuous blonde" known as Galyna Kolotnytska.

The cable from September 2009 describes how Gaddafi's preferences for shorter flights and accommodation on the ground floor created logistical headaches for his staff, and that the Libyan leader never travelled without a certain Ukrainian nurse at his side.

One source, tells the US embassy that Gaddafi cannot travel without Kolotnytska, "as she alone 'knows his routine'," it said.

"Some embassy contacts have claimed that Gaddafi and the 38 year-old Kolotnytska have a romantic relationship," it said.

"While he did not comment on such rumours, a Ukrainian political officer recently confirmed that the Ukrainian nurses 'travel everywhere with the Leader'."

However, Galyna herself recently left Gaddafi and Libya and returned to Kiev, Ukraine after 9 years in Libya, fleeing the unrest in Libya.

The cable was written after US officials had discussed arrangements for the Libyan leader's visit to New York in 2009 to address the United Nations General Assembly.

After the nurse's travel paperwork was delayed, the Libyan government arranged a private jet to fetch her so she could join Gaddafi and his entourage in Portugal, where the leader spent the night en route to New York, according to the document.

During his visit, his first to the United States, Gaddafi was not allowed to set up his customary tent in Manhattan or to visit the site of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre.

According to other documents cited by the New York Times which were not posted on the paper's website, Gaddafi was so angered by his reception in New York that he threatened to break a pledge to return enriched uranium to Russia.

The US ambassador to Libya told the leader's son "that the Libyan government had chosen a very dangerous venue to express its pique", said the cable, quoted by the Times.

The September 29, 2009,cable said Gaddafi is "almost obsessively dependent on a small core of trusted personnel" who handle every detail.

The leader's "dislike of long flights and apparent fear of flying over water also caused logistical headaches for his staff" prior to the New York visit, the document said.

For his US trip, Gaddafi flew to Portugal and stayed the night, as a source said he "cannot fly more than eight hours" and that Gaddafi "does not like to fly over water".

US diplomats were also told that Gaddafi "must stay on the first floor of any facility that was rented for him" and that the leader "could not climb more than 35 steps".

This was the reason why Libyan officials chose an official residence in New Jersey as the preferred place for Gaddafi to stay during his US visit, instead of a Libyan diplomat's home in Manhattan, it said.

Although he had his Ukrainian nurse close at hand, Gaddafi did not bring his famed all-women guard unit with him to New York, and instead had only one female guard in a 350-member delegation, it said.
