Mental carpet-bombing of the Libyan population was aimed at numbing the collective national spirit

Tripoli - Months of dire Sex & The City repeats followed by non-stop 24/7 airings of the two movie sequels have taken their toll on the Libyan uprising.

This afternoon rebel forces advancing on Tripoli took the decision to humanely kill-off the state broadcaster as even the most hardened Libyan stomachs collapsed at the relentless onslaught.

The ruse to mind-bomb Gaddafi's stranglehold on the national psyche with the somewhat dated US 1990s series had not been taken lightly, a NATO spokesperson said today.

Rebel factions made the decision under careful advisement in a strategy hammered out to numb the Libyan collective spirit.

"We got under Muammar's skin, heheh," Brigadier Monty Dambuster commented, "especially the later series where Charlotte York's pooch got named Elizabeth Taylor after Gaddafi's adored personal muse.

"Nearly blew his brains out at the imagined slight!"

At lunchtime today newly appointed Libyan charge d'affaires in London Mahmoud Nacua said he'd warned UK PM David Cameron against such mental carpet bombing of the fragile war-torn populace.

"The collateral damage could have been significant," he told Spoof reporters, "with classic Carrie Bradshaw-esque battle scars etched deep into the Libyan consciousness.

"Besides, everyone was puzzled about why - actual physical revulsion apart - the actresses always kept their kit on during er, congress."

The national broadcaster will resume transmission early next week if all goes according to plan.

Footage of the June 2000 ten day funeral and subsequent wake of Syrian President Hafez Al-Assad has been pencilled in for airing for much of September.

His UK-born daughter Asma Al-Assad is 69.
