Stacy Summary: Oh my, @gonzomarx, I seriously thought you had made that quote up re: Gaddafi. I fully endorse more US radio style presentations at the UN General Assembly. Far more entertaining than the banality of evil one normally sees there. It is sickening, however, that, of course, there is no ‘outrage’ by the politicians or their MSM propaganda arms. Imagine if Ahmadinejad had delivered the same speech? Where were all those oh so principled Brits getting up and walking out on Gaddafi? Nope, they sat through the speech, in fact, for 1hr 40 minutes! Anything to do with oil contracts? And how much you want to bet that if Iran gave over control of their oil to Exxon, Shell, BP, etc. all of Ahmadi’s misinterpreted speeches would no longer be front page apocalyptic news?
He tore up a copy of the UN charter in front of startled delegates, accused the security council of being an al-Qaida like terrorist body, called for George Bush and Tony Blair to be put on trial for the Iraq war, demanded $7.7tn in compensation for the ravages of colonialism on Africa, and wondered whether swine flu was a biological weapon created in a military laboratory. At one point, he even demanded to know who was behind the killing of JFK. All in all, a pretty ordinary 100 minutes in the life of the colonel.
