Colonel Khaddafi's Jamahiriya

During the inspiring Egyptian uprising to overthrow Hosni Mubarak, I thought the best solution would be to offer Hosni a seat on the last space shuttle flight. The last minute training would surely draw him away from his duties as the president of Egypt as well as appeal to his ego. As far as I know, this is what happened. We don't really know what they told him, come this way sir, the palace is on fire, we must evacuate. How is your dinner this evening, sir. Are you feeling drowsy? I doubt that he actually resigned, based on what we know of his personality, but when Suleiman announced that the president had resigned, everyone seemed to take it as fact except me.

Offering a trip to space is not an option with Brother-Leader Colonel Murmeror Khaddaffi. It's too late and nobody would ever be able to pretend to want to go to space with him. Apparently, according to Murmeror Gadafi, everyone in Libya is on Israeli psychedelics. What a long strange trip it's been.
