Muamar

We here at _Sunny Breaks_ usually consider it too far beneath us to comment on politics, and we here in no way or shape condone the practice known as ‘dictatorship’, however, if push came to shove, and we had to choose a dictator to live under, it’d be that one that’s in Libya.

Ever since I was a little boy I’ve been fascinated with Gaddafi. Back then it was just about spelling: was it Quaddafi or Gaddafi? And for the record, I don’t believe that Libyans were responsible for the ‘lockerbie bombing’ as it’s known. I’m pretty sure it was the CIA. So what we’re left with is one pretty eccentric dude. I was almost going to post this pic a week or two back when I saw it because it’s so neat – from the Vanity Fair website:

<a href=”http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunnybreaks/3949575213/” title=”qaddafi-0908-ps01 by esquimauxpie, on Flickr”><img src=”http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3477/3949575213_9c59019859.jpg” width=”500″ height=”266″ alt=”qaddafi-0908-ps01″ /></a>

The whole way that one state is quietly tolerated while another is labelled a dictatorship, or undemocratic by western petty bourgeois democracies is a pretty thorny issue anyway.

So anyway, I totally agree with calling the UN security council the *_TERROR COUNCIL_*. That’s awesome.

  1. Sarkozy should put his hand through his jacket opening like Napoleon’s standard image, but really that pic looks like a police line-up.
    Quaddafi has Idi Amin has a house-guest and one’s mind boggles at their conversation during TV night in front of Desperate Housewives.
    wishing you Happy Trails
