Gadhafi Katika UN - Gadhafi's U.N. rant
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi called for world unity in confronting crises -- such as climate change and food shortages -- but he expressed ire at the world body and the United States. Watch Gadhafi's rant at the U.N. »
In a 96-minute, rambling address in his first appearance before the United Nations, Gadhafi broached conspiracy theories, urged probes into U.S. military activities and took aim at the structure and the actions of the Security Council itself.
Gadhafi steals the show
Dressed in a traditional Libyan cap and robe, he elaborated on what he said is the unfairness of the structure of the U.N. Security Council, which has five permanent members -- the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain, each with veto power.
"Are we equal in permanent seats.!?" Gadhafi asked. "No, we're not equals."
He said the Security Council has provided not security, but "terror and sanctions." No one should accept the resolutions of the Security Council, he said, adding that the body should be called the "terror council.
Mimi nimeona kuwa Ghadhafi kazungumzia maneno mengi ya ukweli na pia kaitetea Africa nzima na masikini, Lakini watu wengi watamuona kama ni mjinga na sivyo ana hekma nzuri sana na haogopi kuzumgumza ukweli mbele ya mtu yeyote yule, Ila kinachomuharibia ni namna au jinsi ya kuzungumza kama wanavyofanya wengine kwa uoga na wanakua na mengi ya kusema lakini wanaogopa, Hapo U.N. ni sehemu na fursa ya raisi wa kila nchi duniani kutoa ukweli unavyotakiwa si kwenda kama picha tu au shoo.
