Muammar Gaddafi To Speak Momentarily On TV

Tyler Durden's picture

According to Al Arabiya, Libya's Muammar Gaddafi will deliver an address on TV imminently. Hopefully it will be better received than Mubarak's last speech.

We will post it here as soon as we see it, although we are confident Al Jazeera will be televising it (link here).

I fully expect him to issue his mea culpa.

And if this is even partially true, it is extraordinarily dangerous:

Just remove the trailing slash from the link above. Worked for me.

Cleanclog's picture

Still says "Bad Gateway".  Can't get through on this link either.

Gaddafi will prove, once again, what a psychopath he is.  

Rooster Cogburn's picture

Yea, I got that too... But the link is all about the US warships that are cutting off the Iran ships from making a move to the Suez, thus the delay.  Could get ugly quick if those Iran ships have those "suspected missles" on board.

U.S. warships blocking passage of Iranian ships into the Suez. What could go wrong? Cultural misunderstanding over various hand gestures between the crews.

TeamAmerica's picture

Of course, US warships are doing no such thing.   There's a pesky bit of paper called the Convention of Constantinople which guarantees right of passage through the canal.

I think it was the Kaiser who called treaties "scraps of paper" to be torn up at convenience.

StychoKiller's picture

Or, it was VonRibbentrop, Hitler's foreign Minister...

Antipodeus's picture

I thought it was GWB who called the U.S. Constitution ' just a god-damned piece of paper' (or words to that effect).

I like this part of the article best:

This pile-up of US naval, air and marine might at strategic points in the Middle East is a warning to meddlers to keep their hands off the revolutions, uprisings and protests sweeping Arab nations. It carries a special message for Tehran that the Obama administration will not permit the Islamic Republic's rulers to make military and political hay from the unrest - in Bahrain or anywhere else.

Pure Evil's picture

Obama will not allow Tehran to make political hay from the unrest?

What a knee slapper, has he even come back from vacation yet?

By the way, Iran couldn't harvest farts from the Greater Middle East fiasco, much less make political hay.

palmereldritch's picture

No, it's their hay on fire so it will be their harvest on their terms.

I'm calling total bullshit.  You would NEVER park an aircraft carrier next to what could very well be an Iranian corvette and supply ship full of explosives.  

Assymetrcial warfare possibilities are just too high to allow that.  

Parking a frigate next to those ships?  Sure thing ... an aircraft carrier ... no freaking way.


TeamAmerica's picture

They are not parking next to anything, it's just a bunch of ships in the general vicinity and people who don't normally pay attention to ship movements making assumptions about what it means.

ZH readers who pay attention will remember this:  and if you study it for a moment you will see that the DEBKA report contains a fundamental falsehood.   Nice try though.

The real question is:

"Will he address his beloved nation live from Venezuela?"

Don't forget Mr. Ed, a very wise talking horse who was the basis for my early ethical training. Quite frankly, considering today's massive global lie maybe it's time to resurrect Mr. Ed.

A horse is a horse
Of course of course
And no one can talk to a horse,
Of course
That is, of course
Unless the horse
Is the famous Mister Ed!

Go right to the source
And ask the horse
He'll give you the answer that you'll endorse
He's always on a steady course
Talk to Mister Ed!

People yakkity-yak a streak
And waste your time of day
But Mister Ed will never speak
Unless he has something to say!

Oh, a horse is a horse
Of course, of course
And this one'll talk 'til his voice is hoarse
You never heard of a talking horse?

Well, listen to this:
". . . I am Mister Ed

Gadfly enters, lights dim, center light is on him.

Gadfly turns, places the cassette tape in the deck.  Hits Play.

While the music is playing he is somber, reserved and stoic.

At the end of it...jazz hands and looney tunes dance.

He's got a deal with the US?

Won't be for while until us news covers this. Barely any coverage all day.

With 10 or more different spellings.

Wasn't it Muammar himself who once said:  "I don't care what anyone thinks about me, as long as they spell my name correctly" ?

Taped 5 days ago for sure.....Maybe Gadaffi even planned well enough to scrap together his worthless fiat stash.

Gaddafi reminds me of Raoul Duke on an ether binge . This is going to be some funny shit .

Hey man i was watching al jazeera live on the net when my computer just shut down like a bullet was shot through it . I rebooted and it wouldn't restart it crashed right away . I reebooted one more time and I got a message that my windows had been reconfigured? Anyway I had to "slow" start it and now I am online . You know of anything that would shut dowm my comp from a remote location or you think I am just being paranoid and my computer overheated ?

Might want to download and run Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.  It's free and does a good job on actually cleaning the nasty from a windows install.  Microsoft has been getting it's ass kicked on security annoyance so long it final put out a useful tool by buying a good AV/Malware company to package and give to it's customers.

Second.  Do a defrag.

Third. run scandisk to repair any bad sectors on your hard drive.

For over heating you crack up the case if you have a desktop and use a can of air.  you can get them for 6-8 bucks at office supply places.  Wear a mask while you are doing it.  All that dust in there is bits of you and whatever animals you have around the house.  If you have a laptop, depends on the vendor.  Acer and Dell makes it easy to clean the back end vent and fan.  If you leave it too long the tiny little fan in there blows out and it is an expensive repair especially in macbooks (around $250 bucks for the fan itself).  Again use a can of air to blow the crap out of the box and wear a mask.  The dust in your PC can be mould filled and should be considered hazardous btw.  Do not use a vacuum, most vacuum generate a shit load of static electricity and will blow the motherboard in a pc.  There are vacuums they sell, but they don't do as good of a job as a can of air.

Thanks man much appreciated !

A Man without Qualities's picture

It's funny - I see him as a cross between The Dude and Joseph Stalin, if that's possible.  He's always stoned - really, this is not a joke, he really is a wake and bake guy.  He's renowned at the African Nations' Summits for bringing his retinue by land and then pitching his tents somewhere (he refuses to stay in offered accomodation, says he's an Arab and that's how they do it) and getting stoned.  He then gives his rambling speeches and everyone's rather embarrassed.  For years Western journalists noted his slightly off-kilter manner and rambling sentences, but never realized it was because of his fondness for the weed...

Interesting. I recall my various port calls while serving with the Sixth Fleet. Especially North Africa. It appeared to be much easier to procure almost any quantity of hashish that might be desired, as opposed to the actual herb.

Pure Evil's picture

Weren't you the lucky one!

I believe way back in the old days, before High Times and growing sinsemilla became fashionable, making hashish was one of the ways to turn low potencey parts of weed into something that could be smoked and get you high.

From Wikipedia:

"a preparation of cannabis composed of the compressed stalked resin glands called trichomes, collected from the cannabis plant. It contains the same active ingredients but in higher concentrations than unsifted buds or leaves"

The choicest product found was in Rotterdam. An 18 ounce block of "Black Afghan", with the imprint of an elephant stamped on one face of the cube.

The second-best had to be from that guy in Tangiers, but there is no doubt that it was mixed with opium resin.
