Libya – a tale of two flags

Libya now has two flags flying – the imaginative Gaddafi designed flag which is…well it is just green.

Seriously, for a falling leader that fancies himself a fashion maven and who is surrounded by tailored female bodyguards, he could have done better.

And then we have the pre-Gaddafi flag adopted by the revolutionaries and now the de facto flag of liberated Libya.

Anyone with any sense would be on the side of the people who know a good flag when they see it. Fingers crossed that this will soon return to being the flag of a new and changed Libya.

Globe and Mail: Canada imposes wide range of sanctions against Libya

The Globe and Mail reports that Canada’s second lamest PM in recent history ( only because Mulroney lasted longer) has finally indicated what Canada plans to do about Libya’s regime.

“Our government will impose an asset freeze on, and a prohibition of financial transactions with the government of Libya, its institutions and agencies, including the Libyan Central Bank.

“These actions will help restrict the movement of, and access to money and weapons for those responsible for the violence against the Libyan people.”

The 192-member UN General Assembly is meeting Tuesday to vote on a UN Human Rights Council recommendation to suspend Libya from the world organization’s top human rights body.

Mr. Harper said Mr. Gadhafi has betrayed his own people.

Saif al-Islam Al-Gaddafi redefines ‘shameless liar’

Via Russia Today.

Seemingly thinking invoking the magic name will result in Western support,  Saif al-Islam Al-Gaddafi, is now attributing the popular uprising against the Libyan regime to al-Qaeda . Thinking that the rest of the world would be that stupid is one thing but the  calm way he lies directly to the cameras is a chilling testament to the pure evil he and the rest of his family represent.
