"The popular revolt that has already seen opponents of Col. Moammar Gaddafi's 41-year-rule claim the eastern half of the country spread deeper into the west on Sunday, with rock-wielding residents expanding control over key towns even as loyalist forces appeared poised to counterattack or impose blockades. With his rule of the nation at large failing, Gaddafi sought to reinforce his position in Tripoli, the capital and his stronghold, by literally doling out cash to citizens and vowing huge raises for public workers, residents there said."
