Gaddafi attacks Obama on Israel


news.bbc.co.uk

Referring to him as "our Kenyan brother", Col Gaddafi also said Mr Obama might suffer from an inferiority complex because of his African origins.

The issue of race could make Mr Obama's behaviour "more white than white people", Col Gaddafi suggested, rather than acting in solidarity with African and Arab nations.

The comments came during a speech to mark the 38th anniversary since the US evacuated Wheelus Air Force base in Tripoli.

Well, I have been saying this is going to be an interesting campaign season. I think that has proven to be true. I did not expect Gaddafi in the least to be chiming in with his opinion of this presidential election.
I have not heard any MSM play the race card with Obama yet, it is strange that has now been done by a foreign nation's leader.

Actually, like any national leader, Gaddafi makes comments on all sorts of things, all the time. What IS interesting is the heading and the spin - which is to re-establish in the minds of readers, that Libya is hostile to Israel, and by default, an 'enemy'.

World media attention has bypassed Libya of late, probably because the western powers have been scrabbling to get at Libya's 'opening up'. Lots of money being made there of late.

Libya was smart - just before the US/UK invaded Iraq, it saw the USA gunning for any mid-east countries it could justifiably take - and headed them off at the pass. First, they admit responsibility for Lockerbie, even though everyone knows Libya had nothing to do with it; then confess to some non-existent weapons of mass destruction and hand them over in a big media show. Suddenly, Libya's assets were unfrozen, and western business interests moved in.
In reality, Libya has backed off from its policy that Israel should not exist - and has opened up with the world in a many ways. But that is not what you are being told is it.

For the BBC to start linking Libya as an enemy of Israel in the minds of Brits, whether it is true or not, is not a good sign. Libya floats on an ocean of light crude oil, and is in charge of its own currency issuance - those two things alone guarantee it is just a matter of time before they have to be handed over.

very well spoken. Thanks for posting.
When you say they are on a sea of light crude that will have to be handed over, do you mean sold in large quantity on the world market, or taken by way of a war, or what?

Doesn't matter really. The main countries that are in the firing line, are countries who's economies are not part of the international economic order - ie those that print and issue their own currencies - ie mostly the axis of evil countries.

Libya has long opposed the new world order, hence my long-standing interest in both Gaddafi and of the country since he and his mates kicked out the Italians who ruled it. Libya is one of the few muslim countries where women are not suppressed in the least; and where the revenue is spent on the people instead of fancy palaces.

As for the light crude - well, if Libya plays its cards right it should be able to remain sovereign for a while longer.
