You might have seen the news emerging from the country of Libya, involving Muammar Gaddafi. But I bet none of the news you watched was being delivered by someone brandishing a gun. This wasn’t the case for viewers of the state-run news channel al-Libiyah. They were treated to the sight of anchorwoman Hala Misrati waving her gat around. Here’s what she had to say:

“You will not take al-Libiyah channel. You won’t take Jamahiriyah channel, Shababiyah channel, Tripoli or all of Libya, and even those without weapon are willing to be a shield in order to protect their colleagues at this channel. We are willing to become martyrs.”

I’m gonna remember this next time Sean Hannity says something controversial – do you think he’d be willing to be a martyr for Fox News? Anyway, you can see the video for yourself up above. Watch it before you think about invading Libya. (Mediaite)
