L'Ami Qaddafi

Sarkozy may have thought he'd done enough favors to earn a little consideration from Libya's Muammar Qaddafi, but the latter said today he wouldn't allow the proposed Union for the Mediterranean to wreck "the unity of the Arab League." He perfidiously added that France's partners had already refused to allow the idea to wreck the unity of the European Union, which is why the proposal has already been scaled back from the original Mediterranean Union to the current Union of the Mediterranean. Let Europe deal with the Arab League and the African Union, Qaddafi said, if they want to establish a dialogue.
