While Colonel Moammar Gaddafi's days may be numbered, he will be missed by many. Not least by Al Bawaba's entertainment channels, if just for his 'Qaddafisms'. Though Gaddafi himself still does not seem about to take his last curtain call, he might soon get caught out, or beaten, by the overwhelming tide of opposition and NATO's strikes- as witnessed in the Yemeni leader's eventual begrudging departure.
The Edtiors at Al Bawaba might secretly miss him, but we shan't be sorry to see the back of a tyrant who has unleashed a magnitude of force and carnage on his own people.
While he has been officially exonerated in the press as the mass rapist of his people - as e-rumours proliferated the myth of his arming his military with viagra to rape women en mass, following the outing of Iman al-Obeidi- he is still very much a threat at large. Still, his security apparatus seems to be weakening, and there are decided cracks in his armour. Unlikely that his former measures of security - including the now rumoured to-be-retired- Amazonian Guards- can do much at this stage. These female body-guards are reported to have been released, or fled their posts.
In case you too find yourself missing the theatrical appearences of this camera-courting character, as he avoids TV interviews in favor of radio, here's something to keep you going: a reminder in photos of his finest revolution-time moments. A 'Qaddafism Round-up,' if you will.
For previous Qaddafisms, Qaddafisms 2, from the Colonel's career- brought to you first by Al Bawaba.
