Qaddafi Interview BBC 2011

 Muommar Qaddafi has been making the television rounds lately, giving several interviews. One of them was with the BBC-- we have some excerpts below.

Jeremy Bowen: "In recent years you had a rapprochement with Western countries, you had important Western leaders like Tony Blair coming here. Now there are Western leaders who are queuing up to say that you should go. Do you feel a sense of betrayal about that?"
Colonel Gaddafi: "Of course it's betrayal. They have no morals. Besides, if they want me to step down, what do I step down from? I'm not a monarch or a king."
Bowen: "But you make speeches at the UN and you identify very much with Libya even if you don't have a formal title."
Gaddafi: "It's honorary, it's nothing to do with exercising power or authority. In Britain, who has the power? Is it Queen Elizabeth or David Cameron? You don't understand the Libyan system."
Bowen: "I understand the system you have here, but internationally you are regarded as the leader."
Gaddafi: "You don't understand the system here. Don't say 'I understand' - you don't understand. And the world don't understand the system here. The authority of the people. You don't understand it."
Bowen: "How do the people show their authority then? Because some people here who have gone out on to the streets to protest say that your people have shot at them."
Gaddafi: "No demonstration at all in the streets. Did you see demonstrations?"
Bowen: "Yes I have."
Gaddafi: "Where?"
Bowen: "I saw some today."
Gaddafi: "Where?"
Bowen: "I saw some in Zawiya. Yesterday I saw demonstrations."
Gaddafi: "Are they supporting us?"
Bowen: "No they're not supporting you. Some were against you, and some were for you."
Gaddafi: "They are not against us. No-one is against us. Against us for what? Because I'm not a president. They love me. All my people are with me, they love me all. They will die to protect me, my people."
Christiane Amanpour: "If you say they do love you, then why are they capturing Benghazi and saying they're against you?"
Gaddafi: "It's al-Qaeda. It's not my people. They came from outside."
Bowen: "So they're the people pulling down the posters and putting up the flag of the king?"
Gaddafi: "It's al-Qaeda, they went into military bases and seized arms and they're terrorising the people. The people who had the weapons were youngsters. They're starting to lay down their weapons now, as the drugs al-Qaeda gave them wear off."

  1. Wonderful! However there is no mention of the struck-off solicitor, Barry Costello Monelle Delmonte, and his Libyan Fish and Chip Shop expedition to Lancashire. Does the BBC not have reporters in Blackpool or Lytham St Annes?

  2. You've certainly got some cajones there Jeremy....that contemptuous smirk would have had anyone else shot!! lol

  3. Well, for the first time the international opinion seems to be of one voice. China and Russia even Iran's Ivelostmydinnerjacket deplored the murder in Libya. Oh! Sorry what's this? No there are dissenters. The carrion have arrived. The egos have landed. The sight of Jeremy Bow-in what? Fear? total supplication? or is it adoration? Why do the these clowns give such a propaganda coup to Madalfie? I myself with a little edit could change his grovelling, (In truth he's not the only one.) to a complete white wash for Madalfie. And also supply a set of local faces for the evening rendition into fertiliser. I'm sure the simpering woman 'Oh it's so nice to see you again' with him in this shameful display. Does she have other motives. I suspect she's after the vacant nurse's position. I know what goes on behind the lectern and under his robes when he's making all those faces. I've seen Police Academy. And have you ever seen anyone, apart from Keef Richards who looks so permanently smashed?
    How much did these creeps get paid? Was it a supermarket trolley race to Madalfie's vault? How many lives are going to be lost because of their simpering grovelling? Their tacit support. What a boost to Madalfie's ego and confidence it must be to have these egotistical carrion press crawling all over him. Ah! Of course! It must be so Jeremy Bow-down can put in his upcoming book that he was the one who grovelled in abject fear in front of Madalfie. Something to tell the kids, 'See kids, that's me looking like I'm going to sh#t myself, working for Madalfie's P.R. dept.' And probably caused a lot more death. They were just there for Madalfie to reiterate the same line, and use them to look like the subservient self seeking ego carrion press that they are. There are also several of his con/cheat son. Why give them a pedestal to spout their hatred. But then they're the press. They'll tell you it was news. No it wasn't, it was a staged, controlled, regurgitation of everything we already knew. Telling us that there is no war, there have been no deaths, the country is full of his supporters. It probably is by now, there seem to be a very large number of unexplained deaths and soon the people who are possibly the best hope of peace are being systematically wiped out while the west treats the situation with their usual diplomatic finger up the ass diplomacy. Give it a couple of weeks and if there's any sane voices left maybe someone will do something. Even cutting off the state television could have stopped him doing what he promised. Through it he told the world he would kill all opposition. He told the world he would cause civil war.
    Jereamy Bow-in fear. I'm ashamed that you did this. I thought you all would have had more sense than to be used and do this interview under those restrictions. OOps, forgot about the ego, ...and the money. You should be sacked.
    But then of course there'll always be another morally defunct little egotistical creep to fill your place.
