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).

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.

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 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.

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

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.

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: http://www.zerohedge.com/article/contrary-reports-iranian-ships-have-not-passed-mediterranean-yet  and if you study it for a moment you will see that the DEBKA report contains a fundamental falsehood.   Nice try though.

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

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.

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.

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.

What's your damage TA? You some kinda nerf troll?  Your rare break from un-original is to stick your entire leg down your throat? How much do you have to drink to convince yourself you are providing some national service by doing what you do - did you notice that many of us non-trolls are veterans? Ron Paul's 11 election victories are based on his support of the constitution (does that threaten you?). I was reading an article about cop suicides, the story is often the same, they just get up one morning, they realize they've spent their entire life on the wrong side of the population and the gun is on the nightstand... Is that how you aim to live your life? You know Walmart is hiring too right? You know Obama's budget probably won't go through which means you will be out of a job in the near future. You could beat the jobsearch rush, just walk away right now. You might actually make a friend at the bar if you have a cool story that illustrates how you thought about it and did the right thing.

One of the scenarios I have read, I forget where, is the Iranians bringing a massive dirty bomb, conventional explosives surrounded by nuclear material the dirtier and longer half life the better through the canal.  Waiting for proper prevailing winds and then blowing it sky high in order to effect as much of Israel as possible.  I wonder if one of our 688's got a geiger reading on this freight carrying ship?  Blocking these ships is certainly better then most of Iran being molten glass, just a thought.

Israel having nuclear weapons is more dangerous, but nobody ever calls themes out on it.

More dangerous ..  Why don't they just solve all their problems then and use them?  They will never use them first as you well know and you know why but it would hurt to recognize that fact.. 

Ghandi would kick your ASS, probably make you drink his pee..

God knows where you read it, but it's total nonsense.  The whole concept of a "dirty bomb" was something invented by the Office of Special Plans or some other special group who come up with clever ways to scare the population.  Of course, they conveniently ignored the fact that the US used between 300 tonnes in 1991 and up to 2,000 tonnes in 2003 of depleted uranium in Iraq.

Given your comment about the dirtier and longer half life the better, you clearly are exactly the type of idiot who falls for these tactics.

I usually do not do the Chumba thing but you are a fucking dunce who has no idea what the fuck he is talking about.  Have you or any of your inbred posse ever heard of Chernobyl, man without an IQ indeed.   Depleted uranium for your edification if you understand that word is a very low level radioactive with a biological half-life of 15 days.   Civilian uses include counterweights in aircraft, radiation shielding in medical radiation therapy and industrial radiography equipment, and containers used to transport radioactive materials.  Its incredibly long half life of 4.468 billion years makes it the only part of your stupid post that has any reason attached to it at all.  Crawl back into your hole and increase your IQ fool.

"Depleted uranium for your edification if you understand that word is a very low level radioactive with a biological half-life of 15 days."

You must have studied chemistry to a higher level than I did, as a biological half-life is a new concept to me.  

I reiterate my point, dirty bombs are a concept that has no viability in the real world.  The concept is that it disperses radioactive material over a wide area.  This means there is no source with a high concentration (it is the concentration of emissions that matters, pretty much on a logarithmic scale, which is why the firefighters who went into the reactor in Chernobyl to fight the flames all died, whereas those that stayed in the out buildings did not), so dropping half a tonne of radioactive material over Israel would be about the same as giving the population an x-ray.  Add to that, the Iranians have no more than a few kilos of refined uranium.  

So, the idea they would do something so ineffectual and give the Israelis/ Americans and Saudis the excuse they are looking for to launch a conventional attack is just absurd.

I can't believe that nobody...nobody gives this man his proper respect.

He is COLONEL Muammar Ghadaffi!

Can anyone find the old SNL skit of Kadaffi's Fried Chicken (you like it or die!)???  That shit was great.

20 years ago when I was studying various organizational structures, I came across an interesting statistic that I don't know whether it still holds true:

The most common occupation of a condo association president is a retired colonel.

So he still does have a possible career move even if he is downsized [or rightsized] out of his current DiC [Dick tator in Chief] position.

Libyan foreign ministry has leaked text of pending speech:

"I still have a ton of ammo so get back to work or the next round has your name on it. I've been running this joint for 37 years, I like the taste of power and don't plan on giving that up anytime soon. I'm not that wus Mubarak. Reagan and an armada of FB-111's couldn't take me out, so you damn well can bet you SOB's can't do it either. Now, go home and shut up. I need to turn the internet back on. My grandkids are busting my balls about not being able to play Call of Duty 4."

I was raised to believe that his name began with a "Q."

Now that I am all grown up and worldy, I come to find out it was a big government LIE, and that his name REALLY begins with a "G."

I am sooo disillusioned.

They did a little thing about this on the news on SNL years ago.  They noted Ghadafi, Qadafi and others but highlighted their favorite, Kadaffy Duck.

"Momentarily" does not mean "in a moment" or soon.

Momentarily means "for a moment", also "temporarily."

Gaddafi might be momentarily delayed.

He will also be the momentary ruler.

According to some press reports, the upheaval in Libya is being orchestrated by the CIA, et al., in retaliation for the perceived role of Libya in fomenting unrest in Egypt, et al.

Qaddafi will go.  Protestors are gaining control of cities and the military is joining the protestors.  

Next:  Yemen.
