The Boy With The Golden Gun


Recent revelations about Libya's newest frozen food entrée indicate that insanity may have been a contributing cause to Qaddafi's death. You have to be insane to have $200 billion stuffed in your mattress and still risk a sweet, sweet retirement party by scurrying  from one sandtrap to another chased by the Sharia mafia.  You end up getting capped by some kid with yellow teeth who just stole your gun.

Muammar Gaddafi secretly salted away more than $US200 billion ($A196 billion) in bank accounts, real estate and corporate investments around the world before he was killed, according to senior Libyan officials.

That's about $US30,000 for every Libyan citizen and double the amount that Western governments previously had suspected.

The new estimates of the deposed dictator's hidden cash, gold reserves and investments are "staggering", one person who has studied detailed records of the asset search said Friday.

If the values prove accurate, Gaddafi will go down in history as one of the most rapacious as well as one of the most bizarre world leaders, on a scale with the late Mobutu Sese Seko in the Democratic Republic of Congo or the late Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines.

Revelation of the stunning size of the portfolio may stir anger among Libyans-about one-third of whom live in poverty.
The kid wearing the Yankees cap allegedly shot Muammar in the head.

Would you have stuck around Libya with that kind of money available to support you and your family in exile? I'd be on a beach somewhere looking at building a cabana half the size of the  island and ordering a few dozen thongs for my bodyguards.

Qaddafi's unemployed bodyguards in happier times.


For a short time Qaddafi hired Michael Jackson as a bodyguard.

I wonder if I'm in his will. I expect to receive an email any day now.

Just another distraction and diversion from Obama's evil.

Silly old fools vanity got him in the end. He could have lived out his life in opulence and splendour or even bought Burkino Faso with that sort of cash.

It didn't even buy him the best sewer pipe to hide in.

Kid - I'm his estate's executor. If you send me a certified check for $2.5 million I can add you to the list of beneficiaries.

Nickie - most likely it is. The old misdirection ploy used by magicians. If his wife had any kind of a chest she'd be out in front of the national media swinging her sweater puppies like an Olympic hammer thrower while screaming, "Lookit these!"

Or maybe that's Biden's job.

banned - maybe that's what happens when you surround yourself with yes men. Everyone strokes your ego and you think that whatever you do is awesome.

Not.

Odie - he coulda been surrounded by a bevy of beauties, sipping a wine cooler and having steak and lobster in Bimini right now instead of having getting reamed and steamed by a rampaging herd of Muslim butt raiders. What in the name of Rutherford B. Hayes was he thinking?

And it's now Out of the frying pan and into the fire for Libya. Our maps will soon resemble those from the 8th century as another country falls into this malignant caliphate. Watch for Algeria and Morocco to soon be added to jihadist real estate holdings.

Andy - out of the frying pan and into the felafel. Looks like we'll be needing some Crusaders again pretty soon.
