Gaddafi Speaking Now

Tyler Durden's picture

Watch Gaddafi, without an umbrella this time, at the link below. Among the choice quotes, the leader says some Arab TV are "serving satan." Which one: the chair?

This translation is awful - I look forward in the next few days to someone doing a decent transcript of this...

You can't.  He's rambling.  I'd rather be a translator for Jabba The Hutt, than this lunatic.

Yeah but never mind the quality feel the width, what quantity. An hour of pure rant.

Agreed, it's not the translation, it's the speech.  It's like a foreign interpreter trying to translate the English of a high school dropout from the inner city, it's a nearly hopeless case for the hapless translator.

So, what you're trying to say then, is the translator does NOT speak Arabic "jive"?  :>D

Per FT: An increasingly desperate Colonel Muammer Gaddafi was clinging to power with brutal force on Tuesday after protests against his regime hit Tripoli, Libya’s capital, and opposition groups consolidated their control of the eastern regions.

Could not have said it better.

So why isn't he President of the USA?

Oh yeah, we already have a certifiable lunatic in that position.

blah, blah, blah, blah.... death sentence to all, blah, blah, blah..... if you breath it is punishable by death, blah, blah, blah..... do you want to be like somalia, blah, blah, blah..... it is the americans, blah, blah, blah......


....and still denying what he is doing to his people, it seems like a last plea. Basically, "You need me!, or all hell will break loose without me"

"You need me, or all hell will break loose without me"


Sounds like Hank Paulson and Timmy G circa 2008 to me.  

Oh regional Indian's picture

Sounds even more like Hoseme Mubarak less than a week ago.

Son of a goatherd. I like how the TPB pick their leaders. Full of holes. Burlesque-oni, Gaddafi, Amin, Hitler...always from the dregs to riches and power.....

and at the UN security council in New York it has just descended into farce when the two most senior Libyan diplomats at the world body both declared that they represented their country.

"Was that really Muammar Qaddafi on TV? And he still has the same tailor. And the glasses, oh dear. Not sure this inspired confidence"

Obviously that is Mickey Rourke dressed in Fremen attire on the movie set of Dune....."The spice must flow!"

That's it!   I thought I heard him say Muadeeb!

People posting these Dune references is disturbing me.

It's disturbing because I understand them. I need to spend more time outdoors.

Okay, but if you have to cross the sand, do not walk in a rhythmic fashion.

I need to drive to the mall. Where's my thumper?

Mood? What has mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises — no matter the mood! Mood's a thing for cattle or making love or playing the baliset. It's not for fighting.

Could someone please direct me to the body language interpertation broadcast? 

BTW could someone tell the fool that Pearle Vision now offers an anti-reflective coating for your glasses.

Some people don't want you to see their shifty eyes.

LOL...Pearle Vision? Those are gold tinted with real gold from oily wealth...

Your comment makes me think of how much I miss Mystery Science Theater 3000.  Thanks for the laugh.

Sophist Economicus's picture

Ya know, this is a great day in a sad way.   I'm laughing my ass off reading these comments and listening to a "world leader" make a complete ass of himself!   I think there is hope for the world after all.  These idiots are on their last legs

When the people finally found the courage to admit that their Emperor had no clothes, their next reaction was laughter.

No power-that-was can stand up to derision.

Reminds me of the comic song:
They didn’t understand ‘im, some people called ‘im mad
But any friend of ‘Itler’s can’t have been all bad
Baronet Oswald Ernald Mosley!
Baronet Oswald Ernald Mosley!
He was popular and handsome as Richard Burton
'Cause I seen on the box once with his black shirt on
And though I cannot claim to be any great authority
As far as I’m concerned the sun shone out of his oratory
He could have been a great dictator given ‘alf a chance
But they treated ‘im like a traitor
So he went to live in France (where else would a traitor live?)
Baronet Oswald Ernald Mosley!
Baronet Oswald Ernald Mosley!

He sounds desperate.  I liked the finger-wagging son better.  Nothing like a finger-wag to rile the masses.

Confused's picture

If he didn't normally show this type of crazy behavior I'd have to agree. Although he does seem less organized in thought than normal. 


What a nut. 

suteibu's picture

I have to admit to not paying much attention to him until now.  If he has always rattled on like this, I'm surprised the people haven't revolted before now.

irishgurl4's picture

You never saw his UN speech then.  Good grief talk about insane rambling!  He ranted for a good hour and a half.

suteibu's picture

Was that the one where the interpreter committed suicide rather than try to keep up...or something?

Confused's picture

There has had to be a case of that. Listen to the current translator. Every sentence trails off as if he doesn't have a chance at keeping up. 

irishgurl4's picture

Ha!  Yeah, that one.  The interpreter collapsed with about 20 minutes to go.  Had to have another interpreter step in to finish translating the crazy mans loony tunes.

suteibu's picture

And here I've been wasting my time trying to keep up with the more subdued, yet equally rambling Japanese politicians.

Confused's picture

His translators must eat xanax like candy trying to get ready to keep up with his rambling. Painful to watch/listen to.
