Qaddafi threatens US with radical attacks

Declaring a "holy war" on the United States, Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi threatened to attack American nuclear bases and risk "nuclear catastrophe" in a ranting three-hour speech marking the 12th anniversary of his rule.

As thousands of Soviet-built tanks paraded past crowds in Tripoli in a show of military force, Colonel Qaddafi criticized the downing of two Libyan jet fighters by US planes.
