It Took Qaddafi Four Days To Mention The Danish Cartoons

His comments are linked to Danish involvement in the military entry into the rapidly escalating Libyan conflict. The dictator points out that since Denmark is the home of the famous Muhammed cartoon makers, this is proof of a anti-Islamist conspiracy at work. I'm not certain how that is supposed to be any more convincing than, I don't know, the multiple invasions of countries with significant Islamic populations, but it's unclear if Qaddafi has made any sense on any subject since about 1979.

I had six days in the pool.

thx, gil
