The PJ Tatler

Where half-hearted war by steering committee leads

Your enemy gets to play Pimp My Dictatorship.

In an outfit which appeared to resemble those of the Blues Brothers, fashion conscious Gaddafi, who apparently changes his outfits several times a day, stepped out in a green safari hat, dark glasses and a black jacket for the public show of defiance in the face of Nato air strikes.

Images broadcast on Libyan state television show the leader standing through an open sun-roof, pumping his fists and waving as his convoy toured the streets followed by hundreds of pedestrians.

Even money says that was a look-alike, but still, the message was pretty clear: Muammar rules, NATO drools.

Update: The steering committee can’t even decide what the objectives are. Italy is keeping its planes out of the fight, while France (!) wants regime change.
