Dear Baraka, Love Muammar

So daffy Muammar el-Qaddafi has written another letter to Barack Obama according to this Thursday New York Times report:

TRIPOLI, Libya — Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi of Libya sent another strikingly personal letter to President Obama on Wednesday, urging him to stop NATO’s airstrikes but drawing a swift rejection in response.

“You will always remain our son whatever happened,” Colonel Qaddafi wrote. “We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne. You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action,” he added, in idiosyncratic spelling and capitalization.

Mr. Obama, who since his inauguration has received at least three letters full of fatherly affection from the Libyan leader, did not respond.

What a surprise.

The full text of the letter (via Business Insider via AP):

Our son, Excellency,
President Obama
U.S.A

We have been hurt more morally that physically because of what had happened against us in both deeds and words by you. Despite all this you will always remain our son whatever happened. We still pray that you continue to be president of the U.S.A. We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne. You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action. I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that.

Enough evidence is available, Bearing in mind that you are the president of the strongest power in the world nowadays, and since Nato is waging an unjust war against a small people of a developing country. This country had already been subjected to embargo and sanctions, furthermore it also suffered a direct military armed aggression during Reagan’s time. This country is Libya.

Hence, to serving world peace … Friendship between our peoples … and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato off the Libyan affair for good. As you know too well democracy and building of civil society cannot be achieved by means of missiles and aircraft, or by backing armed member of AlQuaeda in Benghazi.

You, yourself, said on many occasions, one of them in the UN General Assembly, I was witness to that personally, that America is not responsible for the security of other peoples. That America helps only. This is the right logic.

Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama, your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair. Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame.

The problem now stands as follows:-

1. There is Nato intervention politically as well as military.

2. Terror conducted by AlQaueda gangs that have been armed in some cities, and by force refused to allow people to go back to their normal life, and carry on with exercising their social people’s power as usual.

Coming soon . . .

Dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama,

We have been hurt more morally that physically because of what had happened against us in both deeds and words by you. Despite all this you will always remain our son whatever happened. We still pray that you continue to be president of the U.S.A.

We Endeavour and hope that you will lend us Air Force One and let us crash at Camp David.

C’mon, B.

Be a pal.

    It’s always the crazies that write letters. I want to point out that there is at least one other case of a crazy African dictator writing letters to the head of the greatest power in the world. And then this guy didn’t get an answer, he started torturing British citizens:

    There’s a fantastic fictionaliztion of him in Flashman on the March.

    Maybe he still thinks it is possible to remain in power even after the military operation and this letter is just the beginning of making his effort to avoid the trial that he deserves after the atrocities he has committed to his own people.
