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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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