Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  • Gaddafi snorts cocaine
  • the general impression is that he played Sarkozy for a fool (senior ministers say privately that this is the first time where it was obvious that Sarkozy was not in absolute control of things)
  • in particular, Gaddafi openly humiliated Sarkozy on the topic of human rights
  • on armaments deal, the only one that apeears to have a good chance of happening is the Rafale plane one (because Gaddafi loves the toy) - but that is dependent on US approval as some on board electronics are of US origin (I must say I'm a bit shocked to learn that)

And their headline: "Sarkozy : from Libya to Libido"

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
