In an upcoming issue of GQ, Saif Ghaddafi informs the world that Libya 'doesn't need democracy lessons from the United States.

Really, he said that here. " ....the son of Libya's leader Muammar Ghaddafi and one of the country's prominent faces abroad, says that while he supports opening up Libya to Westerners, the country does not need democracy lessons from the United States. He further dismisses speculations of him being heir to Libya's leadership.

It gets better. The idiot goes on to say in the same article, when questioned about the prospects for peace in the Middle East,

"He (Ghaddafi) is far from optimistic about the prospects of peace in the
Middle East. "Zero. And I think for the next two years, there will be no
progress in the peace process because Israel is a crazy government. Nobody can make a peace deal with those people. They're destroying houses and uprooting olive trees. You cannot make peace with people who are destroying and uprooting olive trees, which are the symbol of peace."

No mention of terror, corruption, etc. Only olive trees.

Of course, the Libyan government has been run by a man who sees himself as the picture of mental health. Now, his up and coming son sees Libya as the next California. Seriously. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
