Die Already, Qathafi

Supposedly, that is a very close English spelling from the Arabic. Everyone knows the psycho I’m writing about.

I haven’t written about what’s going on in Libya because 1). It’s been pretty horrifying 2). That guy gives me the heebie jeebies. Seriously. Even in the early 80s, when he was decked out in his uniform with his signature colonel hat, he made me shudder. I knew this guy was bad news from the minute I saw him.

What made me want to write about him was when I heard the words mustard gas being tossed around in news reports. Talk about my head spinning.

Would Gadhafi Use Mustard Gas on His Own People?

Supposedly, he dismantled the bombs necessary to deliver the gas. But he still has 14 tons of the stuff. Would he be able to get some bombs? The thought just freaks me the hell out.

The guy is absolutely insane. After reading more about him, there is no doubt this guy just ain’t right.

  • In 1977, he ordered all Libyans to raise chickens, even if they lived in cities in apartments.
  • For kicks, he likes to lie on the floor of his office covered with a sheet for up to two hours at a time.
  • He has 40 hand-picked female bodyguards, who wear high heels and must be virgins.

A former Sudan president said that he “has a split personality…both evil.” OK, I don’t know about you, but someone like that should not be anywhere near 14 tons of mustard gas. And we thought we could count on him for help against Al Qaeda?

As Regimes Fall in Arab World, Al Qaeda Sees History Fly By

“A cable from the American Embassy in Tripoli briefing Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice before a 2008 visit called Libya ‘a strong partner in the war against terrorism,’ noting ‘excellent’ intelligence cooperation and specifically lauding Colonel Qaddafi’s efforts to block the return of Libyan militants from Afghanistan and Iraq and to ‘blunt the ideological appeal of radical Islam.'”

The same guy who wanted to assassinate President Reagan was a potential buddy? Condi said this about the visit, “It demonstrates that when countries are prepared to make strategic changes in direction, the United States is prepared to respond.” Um, Condi? Insane is insane, and they tend to change for worse, not better. This is yet another example of the enemy of my enemy is my friend crap that gets us into trouble every time. When will we learn to knock that off?

That was then, this is now. The world needs to be rid of this psycho terrorist/tyrant. I would take exile so he is as far away from that mustard gas as possible. I would prefer his death, though. And I hope a Libyan has the pleasure of putting the bullet in him. ASAP.

    I’d just like to point out, for no apparent reason (*wink*), that the guy is a Leftist…

    Anyway, I heard on the news that U.S. Navy Carriers are approaching Libya. Is Obama going to send in some troops to stop this murderous despot? I hope so.

    Even though I generally consider myself a non-interventionist, we cannot sit idly by while this maniac slaughters innocent people. It’s just not right.

      “I’d just like to point out, for no apparent reason (*wink*), that the guy is a Leftist…

      Who isn’t a leftist in your fringe view of things? (*wink*)

    • SpinnyLiberal

      Yes, they’re being “repositioned” for possible military or “humanitarian” operations. The UK promised they will not abandon the rebels like we did with the Kurds.

      So far the rebels have been able to keep his forces out of the city closest to Tripoli that they took over. What a nightmare.

  • Terrance H.

    Obviously, woodgate, your statement makes no sense, considering the man is, in fact, an admitted socialist…

    And my fringe view of things? I’m far more moderate than you, woodgate. You’re wholly Left on every issue we’ve ever discussed, be it this blog, your blog, or mine. You are uncompromisingly liberal; ideological to the core.

    I was merely being facetious with my comment, but you took it three times around the block! I guess you like to argue, and insult. You should seek counseling, me thinks.

    I’ll pray for you.

    These are Bedouins…..unless he gets a safe passage permit….he will die at the hands of the people he has been crapping on for decades.

  • Kini

    Hey, I thought you liberals were against hating. Quadaffy is just a benevolent dictator. He’s just like his other Muslim dictator buddies. 😉

    • SpinnyLiberal

      Where did you get that Kini? We hate a lot of things like George W. Bush, the wars, and psycho dictators of any flavor. 🙂

      • Terrance H.

        You hate President Bush? Don’t you think that is a bit strong?

      • SpinnyLiberal

        Naah, hate pretty much sums it up for me.

      • Terrance H.

        And for what reasons – precisely?

      • SpinnyLiberal

        You know why, but what the hell. There are a few more reasons anyway.

        Invading Iraq, Ignoring Afghanistan, the deficit, Hurricane Katrina, and the Patriot Act

      • Terrance H.

        And those are reasons to hate? And while we’re on the subject, in your most recent post, you chastize Fred Phelps for not being “Christ-like.”

        Do you not see the hypocrisy?

        President Bush did what he thought was right. You weren’t the president on 9/11, and you don’t know the man’s heart. It’s totally ridiculous of you to say such things, Spinny.

      • SpinnyLiberal

        Not at all. It would only be hypocritical if I said I was Christ-like.
        Why is it ridiculous? I don’t like how he handled things. In fact, I hate it. I have every right to believe that and express that regardless of what was in his heart.

      • Terrance H.

        It’s ridiculous, Spinny, because though you may hate his policies and actions, there is no reason to hate him…the man. That is absurd, and totally Fred Phelps-ish.

      • SpinnyLiberal

        And? Compare me to Phelps if you’d like. Hitler, even. It’s not like it shocks me anymore.

      • Terrance H.

        I’m not comparing you to Hilter; he was a war hero, for crying out loud.

        LOL. That was a joke…See how they work?

        I don’t think you’re like Fred Phelps either; I just think hating the man, President Bush, is a bit over the top, and not very Christ-like.

      • SpinnyLiberal

        Again, Terrance, never claimed I was or even trying to be. Admirable goal, though.

      • Terrance H.

        I see. So it’s do what you say not what you do.


      • SpinnyLiberal

        Not so much. But thanks for playing.

      • Terrance H.

        Oh, come on! Don’t get indignant now. Geez.

        I’m on a mission, you see. I go around pointing out the hypocrisy of liberalism; feel free to do the same with me and conservatives, because I’m human, so I’m a hypocrite.

      • SpinnyLiberal

        Why do you find it so important to do so? It’s a human thing, and I still firmly believe that it’s difficult to change minds when it comes to these issues.

        I hate Bush. Phelps hates gay people. I wish he didn’t, and I’ll call it out since it offends me. But I know he won’t change. And anyone can call out my hatred for Bush as you did. It’s not hypocrisy because I never claimed to be a love everyone type of Liberal.

      • Terrance H.


        I never enter an argument with you expecting to win – not anymore.

      • SpinnyLiberal

        You do succeed in irritating the hell out of me, so well done. 😛

      • Terrance H.

        I just pray that one day you will see things my way, for I have wisdom beyond my years. 🙂

      • SpinnyLiberal

        Praying is fine. You may die if you hold your breath though. 😛

      • Terrance H.

        Oh, I forgot to tell you how glad I am you have “The Erstwhile Conservative” blog on your list, because that guy is smart; I love bantering back and forth with him.

      • SpinnyLiberal

        Isn’t he? He has the coolest posts. Very informative, too.
