Are you a Donkey? Libyan leader Muammar Al Qadhafi believes so

Are you a Donkey? Libyan leader Muammar Al Qadhafi thinks so. In a speech last week he stated that the political system he created, Jamahiriya (a state of the masses) is the best form of governance and the entire world will eventually embrace it.

Then came the comedic part came ...his critique of multiparty democracy.

"They talk about the alternation of power (from one party to another)..What does that mean? It means that people are being ridden like donkeys."

"The world is fed up with parties and elections. Even the Western intelligentsia feels disgusted with the party system and the farce of elections. They acknowledge the fact that what is going on is not democracy but falsification."

"The world is going to eventually embrace the peoples' authority, sweeping away all those old systems."

"We have seen the world shaken by the multiparty systems...What on earth do we need with the alternation of power when power is in the hands of the masses?"

"There will be no going back on the peoples authority." Reuters

Hmmm. This coming from a man who came to power through a military coup, is a known human rights abuser, human trafficker, WMD maker and concealer, former member of the "axis of evil" and creator of the absurd "third universal theory"

.....Nonetheless, he might be right about the "farce of elections" worldwide though?

Same Players. Different Scandal.
