Back in May 2006, when the West (USA) and the Great Libyan Socialist Jamahiriya were becoming fast friends. Americans were asked a question:
“Libya says it will work with the United States to spread democracy. What do you think?…..”
The answers were “interesting” if not necessarily brilliant:
“If we really want Libya to help spread democracy, we’d better give them their (WMD) weapons back.”
“Libya might seem like an unlikely partner, but, given our current international standing, every partner is an unlikely partner.”
- A favorite: “The same thing happened with my boyfriend and me, sort of. As soon as I agreed to give up my virginity, he agreed to remove me from his personal list of state-sponsors of terrorism.”
