Wild man Gaddafi provokes Italy on first visit to Rome in 40 years
Richard Owen, Rome
Colonel Gaddafi has arrived in Rome at the start of an historic visit to Libya's former colonial masters with an archive photograph provocatively pinned to his chest showing the arrest of an anti-Italy guerilla fighter dubbed "The Lion of the Desert".
The photograph shows the arrest in 1931 by colonial Italian troops of the Libyan guerilla leader Omar al Mukhtar. Al Mukhtar's frail elderly son, who descended the aircraft steps with difficulty just behind Gaddafi in traditional white Arab robes, is part of the 300-strong delegation accompanying the Libyan leader.

Ughhh.... I think one of those goat’s eyes I had for breakfast must’ve been off.
Look! Michael Jackson is now completely white.
LOL...I was just going to say he looked like Alan Rickman....an older and disheveled Alan Rickman.
I thought it was Michale Jackson for a moment!!!
Talk about holding a grudge! But maybe the President of Italy should show up at the state dinner with pictures of Lockerbie and an old Libyan-sponsored slaughter at Fiumicino International airport.
No doubt they’ll be talking about Oil / Gas / and illegal immigration, seeing as most of the boats making land on Sicily are leaving from Gedaffiland.
As usual, the Libyan leader will be sleeping in a tent (in Villa Borghese) much to the distress of joggers and secret lovers.
My name is Imigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
Good heavens. He looks completely insane.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought that.
OMG! He is ONE WEIRD LOOKING DUDE....
Seriously he looks ill. And he has had some BAD work done - trust on this.
Operation El Dorado Canyon...too bad we missed.
After all these years and he still is only a friggin colonel?
Drugs are bad...mmmkay?
His eyes look dead...
Yes, he does. That’s what I thought, too. His eyes are vacant.
