TRIPOLI, LIBYA -- Muammar Qadaffi is in hiding, his forces surrounded in their last strongholds. To the rest of the world, the war for Libya seems almost over, but not to him.

"Use the guns. Go and fight and fight. And we're going to fight from one place to another. This will be very long and then they will regret and never underestimate the armed forces of the Libyans," said Qadaffi in a taped statement.

The rebels are still only guessing about where Qaddafi may be. Sirte, his home-town and center of his Kadhafa tribe, is one possibility.

Further south, Bani Walid - populated largely by Libya's largest tribe, the traditionally loyal Warfalla, is another potential refuge.

NATO has attacked both towns and rebels are on their outskirts, prepared to attack as well if Qaddafi's forces don't surrender.

"My message is it is over for his regime the forces that remain loyal to him in and else where should give themselves up it is over its finished they are finished," said British Prime Minister David Cameron.

The international community has largely moved past Muammar Qaddafi, concentrating on the rebels who are now Libya's new leaders.

In Paris, a multinational aid meeting on money, supplies and support for the emerging government. Qaddafi's angry broadside wasn't on the agenda.
