Gaddafi - Osama giving youth drugs

2011-02-24 21:21

Benghazi - Leader Muammar Gaddafi says al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is behind the uprising in Libya and al-Qaeda followers give young Libyans hallucinogenic pills in their coffee to get them to revolt.

Gaddafi has made the comments in a phone call to Libyan state TV on Thursday, expressing condolences for deaths in the city of Zawiya but chiding its residents for joining the rebellion.

He says those revolting are "loyal to bin Laden... This is al-Qaeda that the whole world is fighting".

He says al-Qaeda militants are "exploiting" teenagers, giving them "hallucinogenic pills in their coffee with milk, like Nescafe".

Witnesses said 10 people were killed when pro-Gaddafi forces attacked opponents at a mosque in Zawiya, east of Tripoli.

    Oh, you gotta love this guy, that just put a huge smile on my face! He would be the star at any drunk, stoned party!! I will send him a invite to my house warming. (and off course invite the al-Qaeda militants cause man can't live off beer alone!)

    Well, if he can portray Osama as his enemy, at least he will gain some sympathy from the West and eliminate the risk of being attacked from outside.

    Oops, can't blame colonialism or apartheid, so now it is Bin Laden.

    Finally, we're a step closer to aliens. A few more days he'll be blaming Aliens on the chaos in Libya. I bet next week he's gonna launch a bid to find Bin Laden and actually 'find'him. What a snitch

      Didn't Zuma give him some useful tips during his visit to "our brother leader" Gadaffi. How to play the colonialist racist card? Maybe he should call brother leader Mugabe, he's an expert at playing the British

    Guess who is on drugs. You have to be stoned to utter such drivel.

    It must all be Helen Zille's fault.

    The man is CLEARLY mad! But wouldnt it be great, for once, if al-Quaeda retaliated and removed this madman permanently?

    This guy is so full of himself. He has always thought himself as "Messiah of Africa" and really would never believe that his dictatorship could be cause for the uprisings. JZ be aware this is a prediction of what can and will happen should you take the same path.

    Surely he means the CIA?

    BWAA HAAA HAAA... now this sounds very much like, "it is Apartheid's fault"...

      ...continued...: I swear these people get together each year, drown themselves in Heineken (Julias), French Champagne (Julias), Chivas and Glenfiddich (the rest)and khat leaves (Gadaffi, since he does not drink - "sip"posedly), and they drum out ridiculous rhetoric and gibberish like this.
