Muammar Gaddafi threatened Europe on Friday.
He said his Libyan supporters can take the battle to Europe, to target your homes, offices, families, which would become legitimate military targets, like you have targeted our homes.
He warned European leaders to cease their airstrikes against his forces before Europe faces a catastrophe.
Gaddafi made the comments to a crowd of supporters in Tripoli via a telephone, likely because of security concerns.
Because of the overwhelming conventional military superiority of Europe, Gaddafi's threats can only be interpreted as acts of terrorism, if they were to be taken seriously at all.
European officials, on their part, are taking his threats seriously. However, they're not going to let up the bombing and haven't really enacted any specific procedures to prepare for Gaddafi's threats, reported Huffington Post.
Gaddafi, on his part, isn't shy about terrorism. In fact, he openly supplied terrorist groups throughout the world, including those in the Philippines, Indonesia, Palestine, Ireland, Germany, Italy, and the US.
As for specific terrorist acts, Gaddafi-led Libya admitted to the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988, which killed 270 people, including 178 Americans. Gaddafi's Libya was also responsible for the 1986 bombings of a discotheque in Berlin, which killed 2 US sergeants and a Turkish woman.
These attacks were carried out in retaliation to Libyan naval and air force clashes with US forces in the 1980s. They were believed to be carried out by Libyan government agents.
If Gaddafi were to carry out attacks against Europe now, he'll likely still rely on his agents.
However, his isolation, including among international Arabs and Muslims, likely makes launching an attack difficult.
No one will help him carry out the attacks. Moreover, his diplomatic ties with the West are either severed or under review and scrutiny, so the movement of his agents will likely be restrict
