Report: Italian Mafia and Ukranian Mercenaries Helping Gaddafi

A disturbing piece of news is making its way through the blogosphere, and that is that mercenary Ukrainian pilots are flying Libyan MiGs to fire on protesters in Tripoli. The same source indicates the Italian mafia is involved in some capacity in aiding the beleaguered dictator. Here is the text of the report:

According to a STRATFOR diplomatic source in the region, Ukrainian pilots are flying Libyan MiGs to fire on protesters in Tripoli.

The source claims the Italian mafia is also assisting the regime of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and that boats operated by Italians have attacked demonstrators in Benghazi and Tripoli.

The source's information indicated that the Egyptian army has prevented a convoy of trucks carrying aid to Libya from crossing the border, as the Egyptian military is unhappy with potential regime change in Libya.

Meanwhile, demonstrators in Tripoli are planning to reach Bab al-Aziziyya, a bastion for the Libyan regime. The Libyan army unit that guards the road leading to Bab al-Aziziyya has joined the demonstrators, according to the source. The source's information has not been verified.

Additionally, Italian parliamentary sources have been quoted as saying that a large number of Italian air force helicopters and the navy have been ordered south. Also, all Italian air bases have been placed on alert according to the same sources.
