It is amazing that these pigs can stand the hypocrisy although it probably never occurs to them.

This 340-600 flying carpet costs $250 million for passenger service; add say $ 70 million for the special trimmings like jacuzzi, gold plated (maybe solid gold) faucets and toilet rims, a well stocked bar and an XXX-rated video system (Ha-Ha)and add a 10% backsheesh and still it comes to less than one hundreth (1/100) of the moneys that he reportedly stashed in secret swiss bank accounts.

It's really too bad they didn't get the same girl that did Trump's jet tour...

Matthew, wait a minute the Monster from Libya bought his plane brand new, the Donald bought his 757 second hand and is already 20 years old, cheap punk, although granted, his choice of girls is a much better one than the voluptuous Ukranian "nurses" that look after the bedouin's health.

That's a pretty nice looking camel. Hope "Mad Dog" is now living in a sewer somewhere!! And the Pan Am tragedy continues with no justice served.

I've heard of "flying carpet" before but this is the first time I've seen a "flying tent!"

OK......so where is the 340 now?.........kinda' hard to hide that. probably somewhere on the African Continent?? Before everyone starts calling the kettle black....what do you think all the Heads of State ride on??....including our President and other notable Congressional leaders and also most of the Govenors of our Country....most large Companies and wealthy individuals. I don't have a problem with it....good or bad individual....apparently the Manufacturers and other associated Vendors were more than willing to sell to whomever .....for profit. Folks, it comes down to the MONEY! Cash is King! They don't care where it comes from!
Jobs....Jobs... Jobs...Merchandise has to move, plus the other support systems....It all comes down to the MONEY!

Our fearless leaders never claimed to be poor farm boys.

Run the starboard engine up to 105% power and stand Gookdafi in front of it. Justice will then be served.

PJ is right. It goes with the territory but is probably more offensive when the user is a tyrant like Ghadfaffi. Having heard our own president rant and rave about "corporate jets" and then take off on Air Force One ( the ultimate corporate jet) makes me sick.

Chris, I understand the FRUSTRATION......but he never publicly said that he was a poor farmboy. It was the Media.....Politics in motion! Don't we all know how that goes.....Geeesss. Check Saudi Arabia and the UAE countries. Talk about Lavish!! Gadaffi had 1 Plane. The other MONARCHS have several LARGE Airliner Jets....Gold plated everything. These countries are Family run. They are NOT chosen by their citizens. Not anything wrong with that.....because it is mostly Worldwide AND it is their country. We need to keep our nose out of everyone elses business.
We should take care of our own....We need them alot more than they need us......Oil, Oil , Oil. Libya has the second largest oil reserve in the world. Hmmmm? Some folks are Lickin' their chops!

When you control billions of ill-gotten gains whats a A340 in the grand scheme of things. The guy is a dictator and as is true with all narcissistic leaders (dictator or note) they are not known for their benevolence...its all about them. The amazing thing they possess is the ability to influence people that they are in fact better off under their protection/leadership. Strong parallels to our current administration. But then again about 98% of the population is uninformed. Anyhow, this guys excesses are not a surprise. When the final chapter is written is will include all the juicy details we come to expect; a harem, jets, cars, houses and probably Libya's national treasures. I am jealous !!

I'm with you Toby! Beware of he who throws the First Stone. Most of the populus of the world, including our country are a bunch of Lemmings... the Govt' is nothing more than a big Glee Club.....that will never agree on anything....because each wants to be the winner....I don't know what for....but a winner nevertheless. What a shame.....Once again Politics in motion @ the taxpayers expense.....the approximately 50 per cent who pay taxes!! In the end.....it will come out....hopefully soon! GOD help us!
God Bless America!

@PJ: I seriously wonder where the 340 is and who will wind up with it. I doubt the rebel leader will fly commercial if he needs to go somewhere and it's sitting there.lol

The flying carpet was still at the Tripoli Int. airport earlier this week, they showed on TV the other night all its accoutrements proper of a dictator worth his title:: full size jacuzzi, plush sofas, king size bed, the works but in the same report the rebels were happily dismantling it in front of international TV crews so whoever gets to to be the new honcho will have to do with more modest carpets like maybe a Citation or failing that, a Piper Cub (ha-ha).

And the purpose of them dismantaling it???? All for show!! Guess who is going to pay to put it back in flying order??You guessed it! The good ol' American Taxpayer!! What Fools we are......Once again ...OIL, OIL, OIL!!

Boeing should have sold him B747 parts from Lockerbie so he could build his own plane much cheaper.

That's a thought, Thor!........only thing....he was not the only one involved. The Brits turned loose one of the ringleaders....still out there free as a bird. What now?

John, there are so many things I hope Republicans call PBHO out on during the debates. He's no longer the blank slate he was in 2008.

Yes he did say he was a poor farmboy. Said it in interviews after he renounced terrorism. You can't blame the media for everything. People are too quick to blame their tv for our problems. This farmboy crap is his propaganda and his alone.

Chris....the truth will come out....in the end.....nobody wins! you'll see....unfortunately......as far as the Rebels....you're dealing with a mass of uneducated and uniformed people.....Remember the game....Where's Waldo?? That part of the world is so unstable.....there will be a power vacuum....you'll see.......very sad..I have worked there....I speak from experience....I do PREY for peace. God help mankind.

Chris,
I don't believe you understand the comment......clarification?
StymieHo

PJ, allow me to clarify for you: PRAY - ask a fairy for something you dont have or to wish something for someone or something. PREY - to predatate like a hawk preys on little rodents in the field.

I dont need clarification. I simply dont buy your version of the story.
