Repost: Photos- Gaddafi & world leaders

This is a blog reposting from March 25, 2011  -- I just felt it had relevance today as it did 5 months ago when dealing with hypocrisy and insincerity-- two traits all politicians around the world possess...

~ July 10, 2009-- Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, US President Barack Obama, UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon and Muammar Gaddafi pose for a 'family photo' on the third day of the G8 summit in L'Aquila, Italy. The leaders discussed climate change, global security and the global recession.

Right now, a bunch of leaders in the western world are suddenly angry with Gaddafi- enough to use military force against him and bomb Libya into oblivion in the process.  Oddly, just a couple weeks ago, they weren't.

Politicians say a lot of things- most lies.  But as the adage goes, a picture speaks 1000 words..  so to save me some extra typing, here are some photos...

~ President Obama

Sec of State Clinton w Gaddafi's son, Mutassim

~ Condeleeza Rice, former Sec. of State under George W. Bush

~ French President Nicolas Sarkozy

~ Former British PM, Tony Blair

~ Former British PM Gordon Brown

~ Current Italian PM, Silvio Berlusconi

* Looks like many need some hand sanitizer... Including Gaddafi
