The sun-baked despot is thought to be enjoying his return to the spotlight as Public Enemy #1, thumbing his nose at the great powers of the world.

Clearly, Gaddafi’s days are numbered.
When the UN finally steps in to completely settle hostilities, as they have in places such as North Korea or Ivory Coast, Libya will once again be a peaceful oasis of camaraderie and freedom. It’s a pretty safe bet, however, that until the Colonel goes, there’ll be a lot of bodies in the streets.
