Gadaffy Duck pimps his ass

Hmm. So Tony is to be seen shaking hands with a former enemy of the War on TerrorISM…

A former member, no less, of the second circle of the axis of evil.
Now why, I ask you, why is Tony suddenly so friendly with the man who was President of the Nation that supported, protected and possibly ordered the Lockerbie bombing, which was until the 11m massacre in Madrid, the largest terrorist atrocity on European soil since the 2nd World War? Anyone else curious?
Is it just me?
Well. Let’s consider some simple statistics (courtesy of the Guardian) shall we?
“For both the UK and US, an energy crisis is looming. The latest BP statistical review of world energy predicted that UK proven oil and gas reserves will last, respectively, only 5.4 and 6.8 years at present rates of use. It has been estimated that by 2020 the UK could be dependent on imported energy for 80% of its needs. The US energy department has calculated that net imports of oil, already at 54%, will rise to 70% by 2025 because of growing demand and declining domestic supply.”
Oh dear. It’s curtains for the UK and US Oil industry, eh?. But Hark! It’s ok. Even if we can’t get the oil out of Iraq until we’ve shot every last pesky towel-head with an attitude problem, we can still rely on Uncle Daffy. To quote:
“Libya produces high-quality, low-sulphur crude oil at very low cost (as low as $1 per barrel in some fields), and holds 3% of world oil reserves. It also has vast proven natural gas reserves of 46 trillion cubic feet, but actual gas reserves are largely unexplored and estimated to total up to 70 trillion cubic feet.”
Fuck it. Let’s have an oil bath.
Guardian commentary
BBC report

Damien DeBarra was born in the late 20th century and grew up in Dublin, Ireland. He now lives in London, England where he shares a house with four laptops, three bikes and a large collection of chairs.


  1. I had a friend called Billy that my mother said looked like Col. Gadaffi. She also thought that he looked like Victor Mature. Billy’s cruel nickname was ‘Longhead’. ergo Gadaffi has an amusingly shaped head. That’s what I think anyway.

  2. So what …? What is your point? You mean
    KaaDaafi should remain faithful to his Muslim fundamentalist strapped with a bomb roots? Or are you upset to learn that all politicians are really lying scum? Please present me me with one that is not and I will provide you some oceanfront property in Arizona free of charge.

  3. Now, I hate to be critical, especially with Damien who’s views often match my own, but we appear to condemning the war in Iraq AND condemning making peace with Libya? What is going on in Libya now (lifting sanctions in exchange for removing WMD’s and terrorism) is the alternative to what Dubyah did in Iraq. We obviously can’t have it both ways. It’s seems silly to say “the war in Iraq is bad, because it’s only about oil and peace with Libya is bad because it’s about oil.” seems a little hypocritical to me. Granted human beings are hypocritical animals.
    That’s just what I’m noticing.

  4. Jag,
    a good point. However, I just find the hypocrisy nauseating. There was a time when Daffy was considered a more abhorrent creature than Saddam or Osama (the latest international Bogeymen).
    It just strikes me that Britain is so desperate for Oil that they are willing to shake hands over the corpses of the Lockerbie dead, yet bomb the fuck out of Iraqis who never, I say, never threatend the UK.

  5. Well I personally think it’s a lesson to us to not demonize pur enemies, we must remember that first and foremost Daffy , Tony the Tiger and Dubyah are politicians. If you keep that in mind then there is really no contradiction makes perfect sense. Politicians demonize their rivals, critics and opposing parties and then pucker up and kiss ass when they need something, it’s just the natural order of things. Like dogs having sex, it’s gross and unsightly and it makes you want to grab the garden hose, but it’s nature.

  6. You know, the above picture of Daffy and Tony the Tiger on a t-shirt with the caption ‘Politics is like dogs having sex’ would be absolutely outstanding.
