Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi called western air raids on his forces, "terrorism," speaking on state television on Sunday.

Gaddafi stated that forces loyal to him operating on the ground would be victorious and western forces attacking Libya would be defeated.

The embattled Libyan leader said that all Libyan people were carrying weapons in order to defend the country. "We will not leave our land and we will liberate it," he stated.

He added that Libya is preparing for a long war.
