Colonel Gaddafi has blamed the uprisings on Osama Bin Laden and al-Qaeda spiking teenagers' coffee with hallucinogenic drugs.
In an extraordinary outburst on Libyan state TV, Gaddafi also compared himself to the Queen of England.
"I have no authority coming from laws or decisions or anything else, I just have moral authority. I only have moral authority. I am like the Queen of England.
He blamed the uprisings on al-Qaeda spiking milk and Nescafe with hallucinogenic drugs.
"They give them pills at night, they put hallucinatory pills in their drinks, their milk, their coffee, their Nescafe," he said. "Bin Laden - this is the enemy who is manipulating people. Do not be swayed by Bin Laden."
Speaking to protesters, he said: "You need to listen to your parents. If people disobey their parents they end up destroying the country.
"The same as in Britain (where) for 57 years the Queen has been ruling."
Gaddafi's former ally Mustapha Abdeljlil, who resigned on Wednesday in protest at the violent crackdown, said he thought the Libyan leader would kill himself rather than hand over power, like Adolf Hitler.
"Gaddafi’s time is up," he said. "He is going to go like Hitler. He is going to commit suicide."
NOTE: there was a much better article on this at BBC last night but I can't seem to find it right now...
