But that’s the thing. Many of Gaddafi’s statements, which will be scorned in the West, actually probably resonate in the developing world. His views on the Security Council are widely shared. President Lula of Brazil said something not too dissimilair.

Still, there is no denying that Gaddafi makes a weird impression. He looks strangely youthful for a man who seized power in 1969 - but youthful in an eerie, articifical way that reminded me a bit of the late Michael Jackson. He’s definitely had “work” done. But then that is true of a lot of people in New York.
