Panetta: Gaddafi’s Days are Numbered

Muammar al-Gaddafi


Libya’s leader seems to be getting into a tougher situation as the USA is indicating he will not last too much longer:

Panetta Says Gaddafi’s Days ‘Are Numbered’

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says Libyan rebels are advancing toward Tripoli from the east and west, and there now is a sense that Moammar Gadhafi’s days in power “are numbered.” Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed Libya, Syria and other Middle East issues at a public forum in Washington.

The Libyan rebels have been claiming battlefield advances in recent days. Panetta’s comments, though, were the first by a senior Obama administration official in that span suggesting Gadhafi’s position is indeed eroding.  (Voice of America, August 16, 2011)

Spokeswoman says move shows Gadhafi government is ‘desperate’ as rebels close in on capital..

The expression about days being numbered come from the Bible:

24 Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him, and this writing was written.

25 “And this is the inscription that was written:


26 This is the interpretation of each word. Mene: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; 27 Tekel: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; 28 Peres: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.” 29 Then Belshazzar gave the command, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom. (Daniel 5:24-29, NKJV)

I even quoted the above in an article back in February titled Gaddafi Vows to Fight to Death, and He May End Up That Way.

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, in the past, indicated that he wanted to lead Islam and Africa (see Qaddafi Hailed as “King of Kings”), yet I never really felt he would be the final King of the South.  He will either be gone or will end up supporting such a leader.

As I have been saying for many months, the current Middle East turmoil seems to be being set for the rise of that leader.  A re-alignment in the Arab world is happening and Libya will be part of it (Daniel 11:40-43).

Watch (cf. Mark 13:33-37).
