My offer of assistance to Colonel Gaddafi

This is my message to Mathaba of today:

I would like you to know how shocked I am at the quite demented and incompetent way the West is positioning itself over the troubles of Colonel Gaddafi.  They should of course be propping him up if they know what's good for them.  Rising oil prices leading to rising food prices is no good for either the West or Libyans.  It is as if the most naive and fanatical of Britain and France have wrested foreign policy from the control of experienced diplomats. 

Perhaps Colonel Gaddafi should prepare a speech to the West and ask them what Britain and France think they are doing proposing sanctions against Libya?  Whom do they think would take over if the Colonel goes?  Are they really so certain that that person - whoever he is - would be so much better?  "Always keep ahold of nurse for fear of something worse" was advice often given to English children from good families.  Unfortunately, these days most children in Britain are singly-parented and illegitimate and the fall in moral and intellectual standards has been both precipitous and alarming. 

Perhaps Colonel Gaddafi should open his own Twitter account..  Now that would be a sensation!

I could help him, even, if he does not think his English is up to tweeting.

It is important to me that you know that my offer of assistance is serious and well-intended.
