It’s a struggle to say anything useful or informative about Colonel Gaddafi’s recent speeches in Tripoli. His past record suggests long, rambling, incoherent speeches addressed to a sycophantic clan audience.
His recent speeches, one given from underneath an umbrella sitting in a car and another given over a telephone line, veering from extremely short to over an hour in length have stretched the meaning of incoherent.
It’s fair to say that his speeches reveal a man who’s lost the plot. And it’s not often that we get to say that about a speaker.
Speeches aside, the situation remains perilous.
One bright spark has put together a medley of a Gaddafi ranting speech to hip-hop music in this short video. It’s meant to lighten the mood…but the resultant feeling is that his public speaking only reinforces his menace and danger.
