Tinpot

It seems, too, that Ghaddafi has established a dynasty: his son Saif el-Islam Gadhafi recently gave a speech in which he in which he described the four pillars of Libyan society:

- the Quran
- Libyan security
- his father

I wonder if there is a handbook for all these tinpot dictators, because they all seem to sing from the same infernal hymn sheet.

Well Jake - we both managed to dine out pretty well on the back of recycling Libya's petrodollar - still don't feel any remorse.

Peoples Committees everywhere! Long live the Green revolution. Jamahiriyah rules

Best wishes
