Colonel Gaddafi has employed a new strategy never before seen in modern day warfare to help combat the Libyan uprising in Tripoli.
On Tuesday, Gaddafi purchased 400,000 captive lions from the African National Zoo and released them all onto the streets of Rebel Held Districts across Libya.
The lions, which have been starved for 9 days have already proved successful by clearing the streets of Tripoli in just 6 minutes.
"I am a genius" bragged Gaddafi, "My plan is simple, either respect my dictatorship and do as you're told, or get eaten by my new fury soldiers."
The financial benefits of employing such a radical strategy are instantly apparent. The lions don't need wages, they feed themselves, they come ready dressed saving on expensive uniforms and they cant answer back, a perfect, self sufficient army fit for any dictator.
The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, admitted Gaddafi isn't as stupid as he first appears, whilst reassuring the British public that the chances of the Lions swimming across the Mediterranean onto Mainland Europe were slim.
The battle continues....
