I love Mo'amar el Ghadhafi, no other arab leader can make me laugh as hard: Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi underlined his maverick reputation Monday by telling African leaders their people's woes would be solved by creating a borderless continent with a single passport. Hmm, the Mariam Webster definition of Maverick: Main Entry: 1mav·er·ick Pronunciation: 'mav-rik, 'ma-v&- Function: noun Etymology: Samuel A. Maverick died 1870 American pioneer who did not brand his calves 1 : an unbranded range animal; especially : a motherless calf 2 : an independent individual who does not go along with a group or party Other definitions include: 3 : John McCain 4 : A self-important, egomaniacal, delusional, pompus bastard (See also: Crazy, looney, and cukoo) Ok, now that that's done, he wants to have a unified borderless Africa with a single passport? What would we call that? The United States of Africa? And who would rule it? and How would that solve Africa's problems? You know what this is really about? The natural progression of of dissilluisoned Pan-arabism. Ghaddafi is on old student of Nasser, a believer in the Nasser Pan-arabist dream of creating a single large unified arab tyrannical state. After realizing that the arab rulers won;t go for it- because none of them wants to share the spoils of his thievery- he thought things over, sat in front of a map and realized that -Oh shit- Libya is also in Africa. The libyans are not only arabs, they are also africans. He thought to himself sitting in his tent "That's the ticket, instead of pan-arabism we are gonna have pan-africanism! I am a genius!". He then proceeded to go in that direction, by giving all of those poor african countries the libyan people's Oil money in his efforts to promote african unity and the african leaders acted the way anyone would act if they were getting lots of money from a crazy person: they pretended to agree with him and believe him, even if they snickerd about him behind his back. Proof? Keep reading: The veteran leader's vision has had little impact on the agenda of the AU, due to adopt a broadly favorable stance on a British-backed drive for more help for Africa to be presented to this week's Group of Eight summit. But few delegates in Sirte were prepared to offer public criticism of Gaddafi or his ambitions. Gaddafi has since 1999 pushed for the creation of a United States of Africa, complete with its own parliament and institutions. He says his plan does not necessarily mean a country's sovereignty will be sacrificed. [...] Not wanting to offend Gaddafi, whose oil wealth and aggressive diplomacy have won him friends around the continent, African leaders praised the ideas and agreed to review them. [...] Gaddafi made African unity a rallying call after failing to get fellow Arab leaders to support his campaign for a united Arab nation. Critics of Gaddafi question his motives, describing the Union as a pitch for power in the continent. Others question the practicalities. "His views are not in line with the rest of Africa on a number of issues," said Sue Mbaya, director of the Pretoria-based Southern African Regional Poverty Network. An African diplomat, who asked to remain anonymous, said: "Gaddafi is a maverick and will remain a maverick." Now read the my definition of Maverick again, and you will get why that African diplomat wanted to remain anonymous after that statement! Ahh Gaddafi, I salute you. You make crazy look good!
