If you don't know about the conflict going on in Libya ... then you live in a cave. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, it seems our favorite megalomaniac is trying to get on Obama's good side with a letter he's recently written to him ... filled with spelling and grammatical errors.
First, some background. Muammar Gaddafi was the leader of a revolutionary army that seized control of Libya in 1969 and abolished it's previously conceived monarchy (which is ironic since there's a revolution going on against him now). To his credit, Gaddafi actually knows English, but understands it better than he can speak it, which I guess justifies the various mistakes in his letter. You should also know that Gaddafi approves of Barack Obama being U.S. president simply because he's an African with an Islamic background. Gaddafi strongly believes that Obama actually associates himself with this background, despite the fact that Obama's never even lived in Africa.
Here's a video of Gaddafi endorsing Obama during the 2008 elections.
And now the letter, in all of it's unedited glory!
Our son, Excellency,
We have been hurt more morally that physically because of what had happened against us in both deeds and words by you. Despite all this you will always remain our son whatever happened. We still pray that you continue to be president of the U.S.A. We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne. You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action. I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that.
Enough evidence is available, Bearing in mind that you are the president of the strongest power in the world nowadays, and since Nato is waging an unjust war against a small people of a developing country. This country had already been subjected to embargo and sanctions, furthermore it also suffered a direct military armed aggression during Reagan's time. This country is Libya.
Hence, to serving world peace ... Friendship between our peoples ... and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato off the Libyan affair for good. As you know too well democracy and building of civil society cannot be achieved by means of missiles and aircraft, or by backing armed member of AlQuaeda in Benghazi.
You, yourself, said on many occasions, one of them in the UN General Assembly, I was witness to that personally, that America is not responsible for the security of other peoples. That America helps only. This is the right logic.
Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama, your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair. Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame.
The problem now stands as follows:-
1. There is Nato intervention politically as well as military.
2. Terror conducted by AlQaueda gangs that have been armed in some cities, and by force refused to allow people to go back to their normal life, and carry on with exercising their social people's power as usual.
Leader of the Revolution
It also appears from this letter that Gaddafi can travel through time. Hence the timestamp indicating that he actually sent this letter a month later in May 2011.
But besides that, as it is clear from this letter, Gaddafi seems to think that there's an African muslim somewhere, deep inside Obama, and that if he appeals to this particular side of Obama, this "Baraka Hussein Abu oumama", he'll find a change of heart. ... Yeah, it's funny how misinformed this guy is. I really can't say Gaddafi doesn't have some truth to his words, but for the most part, Obama is just a puppet for NATO.
I think Scarface said it best:
"You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie."
