I hope you are enjoying a massage and bonbons during this difficult time. Though your country is on the brink of a civil war, everyone needs to relax and know his/her position in life. Thankfully, being Libya’s leader means living luxuriously while those beneath you suffer in poverty.
I mean, honestly! How could these people do this to you? You came to power in a benevolent coup d’état before thoughtfully providing anti-Western radicals with weapons, money, or anything else to fight so-called “imperialism.” Even after the coup, you humbly did not accept the rank of general, but instead remained a colonel.
In 1973, you declared you would cleanse Libya from the “politically sick” and create a people’s army to protect your rule. The opposition that did arise would quickly be put down by murder. Your speedy disposing of dissidents by public execution is to be admired.
And your school systems! How clever to think as Hitler and brainwash children to think like you! Your insistence on not teaching students foreign languages to leave them ignorant is pure genius.
Your war policy is also commendable. Impressively, you instigated the genocide in Darfur, and though you did fail to obtain nuclear weaponry, your attempts were admirable.
History speaks for itself. In 1972, you thoughtfully assisted and financed Palestinian terrorist groups. In 1981, you contemplated the murder of Ronald Reagan and applauded Egyptian president Anwar Sadat’s assassination. Three years later, you commenced your plans for acts of terrorism in the US, preparing for a “race war” to “settle scores with whites.” You have been accused of ordering the Lockerbie bombing, which killed 270 innocent souls was a commendable example of flawless terrorism.
Despite about 24.3 million people with AIDS living in Africa, you intelligently stated that HIV is a “peaceful virus” and that “if you are straight you have nothing to fear from AIDS.”
After all that you have done for your country, why would they protest against you? Even your Defense Minister (whom you promptly jailed) refused to shoot Libyans. The rebels, however, are not Libyans, as you claim. “All my people with me, they love me all,” you stated. “They will die to protect me, my people.”
It must be so hard on you. After restricting the rights of all your people and exploiting Libya’s resources for your own gain, you must be shocked they have the gall to oppose you. It seems, however, that you cannot accept that fact. Once you do, maybe you will realize that al-Qaeda are not leading these attacks. Face the facts. Something needs to change.
