Mar 12, 2011 1:39:07 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Muammar al-Gaddafi maintains a 40 member group of women unofficially referred to as the Amazonian Guard as his personal bodyguards and protectors. Upon selection as a candidate for the group the ladies are put through a tough training regimen in firearms and martial arts. They are reportedly trained  to protect him and die for him. The Amazonian guard dress in western style fatigues, wear make up,  sport western hair styles, high heels, and other clothing not generally deemed acceptable in the Muslim world. Meanwhile forces loyal to Gaddafi re-took two key areas in their battles against rebel forces. Gaddafi’s troops currently appear to hold the upper hand in the weeks long conflict against rebel forces.
