Not So Fast Gadhafi!

The following is a translation of the opening of an Editorial, which appeared in Al-Zahf El-Akhder, the mouthpiece of Tripoli's Butcher.

"The Great Libyan Jamaheirya achieved multiple and varied victories due to its wise foreign policy. The latest were crowning of victories in two important issues (The closure of the Lockerbie file and the daring and historical decision to voluntarily dismantle all programs of Weapons of Mass Destruction)."

The article goes on promising internal reforms, etc. If Gadhafi thinks that the Lockerbie file is closed, then he is a fool. I was at the 15th anniversary memorial services for the Lockerbie victims this past Sunday. I can therefore unequivocally state that the passage of time has not diminished the resolve of the families to seek truth and justice. If Gadhafi thinks that the US will easily ignore his horrendous human rights record, oppression of his own people and meddling in Africa, then he is a buffoon!

President Reagan once called Gadhafi "Flaky". On Friday 12/19/2003, the words of Ronald Reagan proved true, because Gadhafi cracked. For every second of jubilation, Gadhafi should spend two reflecting on his eventual fate, because he still remains a poster boy for a man in a rat hole. Simply stated, Gadhafi has neither the will nor the mental stamina to travel the long journey to prove his worthiness without making a blunder or two.
