Both Time Magazine and the New York Times Lede Blog are reporting that the leader of the revolution and eternal Libyan humanitarian Muammar Qaddafi has written a (second) personal letter to US President Obama – or “Baraka Hussein Abu oumama” as Qaddafi correctly puts it (better check that birth certificate). Importantly, Qaddafi provided the President with the coveted Qaddafi bump mere days after Obama officially announced his re-election campaign, saying “We still pray that you continue to be president of the U.S.A. We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne.” Now that Obama has the support of Qaddafi, he just needs to worry about those swing states. See if you can follow me here:
- Step 1) Obama bombs Qaddafi
- Step 2) Qaddafi endorses Obama
- Step 3) Obama bombs Florida and Ohio?? – Will he consult Congress first??
Even without the electoral boost that bombing one’s own country is sure to get, it seems as though – with the support of the Libyan leader – the 2012 election is more or less over before it began. Unless, of course, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) decides to run. It seems as though the good Senator could soon get an endorsement from Cote d’Ivoire president Laurent Gbagbo. Oh how things are heating up!
Letter from Qaddafi to Abu oumama:
Our son, Excellency,
We have been hurt more morally that physically because of what had happened against us in both deeds and words by you. Despite all this you will always remain our son whatever happened. We still pray that you continue to be president of the U.S.A. We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne. You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action. I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that. Enough evidence is available, Bearing in mind that you are the president of the strongest power in the world nowadays, and since Nato is waging an unjust war against a small people of a developing country. This country had already been subjected to embargo and sanctions, furthermore it also suffered a direct military armed aggression during Reagan’s time. This country is Libya. Hence, to serving world peace … Friendship between our peoples … and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato off the Libyan affair for good.
As you know too well democracy and building of civil society cannot be achieved by means of missiles and aircraft, or by backing armed member of AlQuaeda in Benghazi.
You — yourself — said on many occasions, one of them in the UN General Assembly, I was witness to that personally, that America is not responsible for the security of other peoples. That America helps only. This is the right logic.
Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama, your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair. Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame. The problem now stands as follows:-
1. There is Nato intervention politically as well as military.
2. Terror conducted by AlQaueda gangs that have been armed in some cities, and by force refused to allow people to go back to their normal life, and carry on with exercising their social people’s power as usual.
