Gaddafi Sends Wake-Up Call To The United Nations

 

 

Muammar Gaddafi Addresses The UN General Assembly In New York

Guardian.co.uk - Wednesday 23 September 2009 - Ed Pilkington

 

It was meant to be a day of global reconciliation [Ed: nowadays 'reconciliation' usually depends on covering over a lot of lies, murder, and deceit], when the new leader of the free world put all the rancour of the past eight years behind him and heralded an era of unity. And so it might have been were it not for a short man, swathed in saffron robes and a black felt hat waving his arms around and shouting: "Terrorism!"

Muammar Gaddafi grabbed his 15 minutes of fame at the UN building in New York today and ran with it. He ran with it so hard he stretched it to an hour and 40 minutes, six times longer than his allotted slot, to the dismay of UN organisers.

On his first visit to the US, and in his maiden address to the UN general assembly, Gaddafi fully lived up to his reputation for eccentricity, bloody-mindedness and extreme verbiage... [Ed: How about 'extreme courage'?]

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 [Ed: thanks for speaking up for us, Gaddafi; half the world still demands the truth of JFK's killing]. All in all, a pretty ordinary 100 minutes in the life of the colonel.

To be fair, this was a man suffering from severe sleep deprivation. The US state department, New York city council and Donald Trump had prevented him from laying his weary head in an air-conditioned tent in New Jersey, Central Park and Bedford respectively, and the resulting strain was evident. "I woke up at 4am, before dawn!" Gaddafi lamented about an hour into his speech, adding for the benefit of the jetlagged diplomats seated stony-faced in front of him: "You should be asleep! You're all tired after a sleepless night!"

Gaddafi certainly knows how to woo a crowd, particularly at important junctures such as this. This was after all his big chance to cement Libya's re-entry into the bosom of the international community after 20 years in the wilderness.

The technique he chose to do so - cunningly - was to blatantly insult his audience [Ed: No problems - they are only diplomats and politicians]. The representatives of the 192 nations assembled in the assembly hall were no better, he told them, than orators at Hyde Park's Speakers' Corner. "You make your speech and then you disappear. That's all you are right now."

He then turned his wrath on to America, Britain, France, Russia and China - the permanent members of the security council, or "terror council" as he renamed it. Their veto was tantamount to terrorism. "This is terrorism, like the terrorism of al-Qaida. Terrorism is not just al-Qaida, it takes many forms."

In case the point was lost on anyone, he tore up his copy of the UN rule book.

 

Rest of article here, plus the concluding put-down by the journalist:

The United Nations had much to do with allowing the unprovoked invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq which have caused approximately 1.5 MILLION deaths. If the United Nations is a wise and intelligent body, could they not have investigated '9-11' and found it was a huge stinking LIE?

 

So - smug journalist and smug main-money-stream media:

WHY PUT DOWN GADAFFI WHEN HE TELLS THE TRUTH?
