Muammar Qadhafi

From the Washington Post; a full-page advert from Wednesday, October 22, 1980. For some reason, I have this stashed away. Not much to do with Spain (despite his properties in Benhavís, Marbella), but maybe of historical interest. Consider: Carter and Reagan and their times have long passed, but a dictator like Gaddafi managed to last rather a longer time (he seized power in 1969). Camping in a truly provocative way with his tent in the Downing Street and Rose gardens... and the Western rulers kissed his hand.
It's worth reading - Gaddafi makes some good points. I'm not an apologist, but doesn't his country have rather a lot of oil?
