Right after the poorly shot, poorly pieced-together “Muhammad Movie” hit the web a few days ago, some people quickly began to piece together things that didn’t make sense. The supposed writer/director was a person who didn’t exist, the overdubbing was incorrect, the film looks like it was hastily put together from pieces of other movies, etc. And now, US officials think that the inflammatory film was put together to incite a riot to cover up a well-planned attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
In a “Mussolini made the trains run on time” sort of story, one of the unexpected consequences of the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya is the rise of desert locusts. Gaddafi was an asshole, but he was really good about keeping desert locusts at bay. Now that Libya is in a complicated transition period, the locusts have returned.
Everybody knows that Moammar Gadhaffi was a total fucking psycho asshole, and with his death earlier this year, more information is coming out on exactly how looney he was. For example, apparently one of his favorite methods of torturing men was having their dick holes superglued shut so they couldn’t pee.
At the courthouse in Benghazi in eastern Libya, where the spark of revolution was first ignited, a disturbing thing has turned up… Al Qaeda. Like the opportunistic attention whores they are, they seem to have taken advantage of the uncertainty in Libya to set up shop in the very place where the movement to overthrow Gaddhafi began and have hoisted their flag to prove it.
Not only did Gadhaffi have a Condi scrapbook, he wrote a song for her called “Black Flower of the White House”
Artist’s interpretation of one of the many outfits Gadhaffi probably had prepared for Dr. Rice.
When Muammar Gadhaffi was chased out of his mansion by rebel soldiers, the world was surprised and amused to find that he had a huge scrapbook full of pictures of former US Secretary of State Condi Rice, whom he apparently had a huge hard-on for. But for Condi, this wasn’t news. He had showed her the books. He also had a song composed in her honor called “Black Flower of the White House.”
“You know I’m gonna fuck your shit up soon, right?”
The Libyan revolution was something— I guess I can use past tense now— that in the US, could be easily skewed to whatever point you were trying to make. In the beginning, the right called it “Obama’s war” and tried to play up the US role as a negative, but now try to downplay American intervention. On the left, the reactions were just the opposite. Undoubtedly, the lion’s share of credit goes to the strong and brave Libyan people, but the rebellion would have been crushed if it weren’t for the support of France and America, just as America would have lost its own revolution if it weren’t for the support of the French.
When the news that Muammar Gaddhafi had been killed this morning, the obvious question was “Well, what sort of loot did he drop?” Well, he did drop some pretty nice loot in the form of one of his prized custom gold-plated Browning Hi-Power 9mm.
Reports out of Libya are that Gadhaffi has been killed by rebel forces, shot in the back while he was trying to run. The US State Department is working on the assumption he’s dead based on reports and photos, but hasn’t been able to confirm 100%.
What I did on my summer vacation: American college student, not knowing a word of Arabic, goes to Libya to help the rebels
While many people would have liked to have helped the rebels in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi, but actually going there isn’t realistic. But Chris Jeon, a 21 year old college student from Los Angeles was all like “fuck it” and snuck into Libya via Egypt, even though he didn’t know a word of Arabic.
The world already knew that Muammar Gaddafi was dangerously crazy, but in the days since he’s been pushed out of power, the extent of his crazy and that of his family have come to light. First there were the stories of how his family was fond of torturing their servants and opponents of the regime, and now a mass grave of charred bodies has been found in a building in Tripoli, around 53 people total.
After the fall of Saddam Hussein, one of the biggest challenges facing Allied forces was securing the huge amounts of loose weapons from Saddam Hussein’s personal armories and those of the Iraqi military. But with the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, many experts that the number of weapons spreading across the region could be a thousand times worse. Apparently, Gaddafi’s a bit of a hoarder, and not just for pictures of Condi Rice.
And by “porn stash”, I don’t mean there were naked pictures of former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, but Gaddhaffi did have quite a personal collection of photos of her, all bound in a large photo album. And it’s not like a dossier, it’s more like a teenage scrapbook of a favorite pop star. The State Department calls it “deeply bizarre and deeply creepy.”
