Tripoli today is a tale of two cities,in one jubilant opposition supporters believe they are finally witnessing the end of Colonel Gaddafi. Gunmen controlled the streets of their neighborhoods.Pro-Gaddafi forces are nowhere to be seen.The other Tripoli is one of anxiety of fear,of heavy weapons and explosions,the battle for this city is not over.From Colonel Gaddafi's compound smoke can be seeing rising,as the two sides fight for control there.And here around the hotel where foreign journalists have stayed ever since this uprising began,Gaddafi supporters control the streets.

within a movement now on the brink of forming a new government.

Your carriage and character have been unbreakable in the face of the tyrant.An ocean divides us,but we are joined in the basic human longing for freedom,for justice and for dignity.Your revolution is your own and your sacrifices have been extraordinary.Now,the Libya that you deserve is within your reach.Going forward we will stay in close,coordination with the TNC to support that outcome.
