A smouldering copy of the green book written Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi after it was burned by residents of the north-central Libyan town of Benghazi on March 02, 2011 shows a past image of the Libyan leader at the United Nations Security Council. Kadhafi warned the West against intervening to support the rebellion against him, saying that would unleash a "very bloody war" in which "thousands of Libyans would die."
