Qaddafi Wants to Abolish Switzerland

Later this month, Libya will introduce a proposal at the UN calling for the abolition of Switzerland as a nation-state.  Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi wants the Central European country to be divided between France, Italy and Germany, with the French-speaking region going to France, the Italian speaking region going to Italy and the German-speaking region going to Germany.  Qaddafi’s proposal is believed to be an angry response to the actions of Swiss authorities, who arrested his son, Hannibal, last year and charged him with assault (Hannibal was later released on bail).

This is not the first time that Mr. Qaddafi has tried to redraw the political map.  At various times he has called for the political unification of all Arab nations and all African nations, and the creation of a confederacy of Islamic states.  In this vein, he has referred to himself as “dean of the Arab rulers”, “king of kings of Africa”, and the “imam of Muslims”.  He is now the chairman of the African Union, a position held by African leaders on a rotating basis, and in this capacity he reiterated his desire to create the “United States of Africa”.  Naturally, other countries have resisted Mr. Qaddafi’s attempts to subsume them under his leadership.

One Response to “Qaddafi Wants to Abolish Switzerland”

    This has nothing to do with his son, Qaddafi is an American puppet! It turns out that in the most recent World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Rankings, the United States fell to the World’s second most competitive economy. Who took the lead? Switzerland. Looks like someone is trying to use Qaddafi to eliminate the competition.

    Oh, and how can Qaddafi possibly expect all of those fancy titles when he can’t even promote himself past colonel?
