Muammar al-Gaddafi

Brotherly Leader and Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Muammar al-Gaddafi, deserves an extra large oven - not only to go with that oversized title, but also to match his oversized ego and the apalling acts he has performed.

Gaddafi assumed power in Libya on 1st September, 1969 in a military coup against King Idris while he was away in Turkey. It's probably about the last bloodless thing he did, and then only because the King wasn't there!

On Prophet Muhammad's birthday in 1973, Gaddafi delivered his famous "Five-Point Address" which declared suspension of all existing laws and implementation of Sharia, purging the country of the "politically sick", creation of a "people's militia" to "protect the revolution", administrative revolution and cultural revolution. School holidays were canceled to teach Gaddafi's thoughts to children in the summer of 1973.

He is the world's longest surviving ruler. Well known in this country for the Lockerbie bombing, in 1972 Gaddafi tried to get the People's Republic of China to sell him a nuclear bomb.

In 1977, he then tried to get a bomb from Pakistan, but Pakistan deliberately severed its ties before it succeeded in building a weapon. After ties were restored, Gaddafi tried to buy a nuclear weapon from India, but instead, India and Libya agreed for a peaceful use of nuclear energy, in line with India's "atoms for peace" policy.

Several people around the world were indicted for assisting Gaddafi in his chemical weapons programs. Thailand reported its citizens had helped build a storage facilities for nerve gas. Germany sentenced a businessman, Jurgen Hippenstiel-Imhausen, to five years in prison for involvement in Libyan chemical weapons.

Inspectors from the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) verified in 2004 that Libya owned a stockpile of 23 metric tons of mustard gas and more than 1,300 metric tons of precursor chemicals.

Quoted as saying "It is the Libyan people's responsibility to liquidate such scums who are distorting Libya's image abroad", Gaddafi employed his network of diplomats and recruits to assassinate dozens of his critics around the world. Amnesty International listed at least 25 assassinations between 1980 and 1987.

Gaddafi's agents were active in the United Kingdom, where many Libyans had sought asylum. After Libyan diplomats shot at ten anti-Gaddafi protesters and killed a British policewoman, the United Kingdom broke off relations with Gaddafi's regime. As of 2004, Libya still provides bounties for heads of critics, including 1 million dollars for Ashur Shamis, a Libyan-British journalist.

He has appropriated vast wealth for himself and his family and if a great friend of the Venezuean president, Hugo Chavez, where undoubtedly he has arranged a bolt hole in case everything goes pear shaped for him.

At the time of writing, Libya is effectvely in a state of civil war to remove Gaddafi, so I suppose it is a good thing that we found out about his ambitions for nuclear and chemical weapons, because this man is capable of anything.

I don't think there is an oven big enough for this man.

Nominated by : King Idris

Don't forget the arms aid he gave to the IRA also.

Yes, very good. However, Cuntie Blair, Gadaffi's cock-sucker should also feature in your lambast about Daffy.
