He said it was important to look at the reasons behind piracy. He said Somalis were forced “because their maritime zone is violated and their fishing resources depleted.”
Now usually whatever Gaddafi says or does make complete sense.
Like the time he expressed a desire and successfully met 1000 Parisian women, apparently to save ‘the European women’, in his own words.
Or recently when he wanted to meet 700 Italian women on his visit to Italy.
Or his pioneering work as a feminist (which I really appreciate being a feminist myself) : having a bevy of women bodyguards.
So going by history, I am sure there is a lot of sense to his earlier statement.
Also, check out Tazeen J.’s post on Gaddafi.
After a hiatus, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi returns to claim back the title of Dude of the Week. Readers with a keen eye for detail and no other work whatsoever must have realised by now this is the same guy who claimed the prevention of rape in the country’s capital was almost impossible because there were too many beautiful women.
This time around his statement was directed at the victims of the recent earthquake in Italy :
Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian prime minister, has advised traumatised earthquake survivors to view living in emergency tent accommodation as like being on a “camping weekend”.
Closer home near Mumbai, a certain individual by the name of R.R. Patil was heard exclaiming “Bhaiyya !!” (not to be confused with the Raj Thackeray vareity variety .. <- consequences of not proof-reading) .
Starting now, instead of the usual WTF quotes of the day or week, I shall annoint deserving candidates as “Dude Of The Week”. The first in this series is the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for his profound analysis of the violence against women in Italy :
Italy’s prime minister has sparked outrage by claiming the prevention of rape in the country’s capital is almost impossible because there are too many beautiful women. ”We’d have to have as many soldiers as there are pretty girls. I don’t think we would manage,” he told reporters.
In light of the recent attacks against women in Mangalore, for people who believe protection of women is a responsibility of the state, may I add that protection of women is almost impossible as there are too many modern women in India.
P.S. : Dude of the Week is the unregistered trademark of the organization I used to work for previously.
