Gadhafi a fan of plastic surgery, hamburgers

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, who has been in power longer than almost anyone in the history of Earth, wants to look good for the people he’s tormenting.

After surgery, Brazilian Dr. Fabio Naccache (left) and Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi both had blood on their hands.

Unlike his patient, Dr. Fabio Naccache (left) only has blood on his hands during surgery.

The Associated Press reports the dictator, who has been stuck at the military rank of colonel for 42 years, had belly fat injected into his face to give him the appearance of a youthful despot, say a ’20s Stalin or ’50s Castro.

In 1995, a Brazilian plastic surgeon received an envelope stuffed full of cash before stuffing Gadhafi’s drooping face with fat extracted from his stomach.

Gadhafi, now 68, would only allow the surgeon to use local anesthesia for the four-hour procedure so that he could remain alert, the article says. During the operation, Moammar, who also got hair plugs, stopped to eat a hamburger.

He has some of the worst plastic surgery I have ever seen. He looks awful.
Of course he is an awful creature. While the AJC feels the need to do non-negative blog on him I just wanted to remind those with short memories, he killed 190 Americans & 270 people total by blowing up Pan-Am Flight 103 in 1988.

Does anyone in the media actually know how to spell his name. I swear I have seen it at least 5 different ways. I don’t get it. Let NBC or MSNBC get hold of it and they will change it altogether.

He looks like a wax figure in that picture. The story of his surgery reminds me of something on Nip/Tuck.

Joe: I think you mean “scalpel” and “jugular”.

Who cares? He lives for the press as though he was a celebrity. Just like Charlie Sheen, the more coverage he gets, the more destructive he will become. His 42 years of fame and infamy should end NOW.

@MyPatootie, He’s an Arab and Arabs use a different alphabet, and is written and read from right to left. The Arabic lette sounds translate to our alphabet in a variety of ways. Here’s his name in Arabic and English معمر القذافي‎ Muʿammar al-Qaḏḏāfī The Q in front of his last name is pronounced more from the back of throat, between a Kh, and a G, hence the different spellings.

People all over the world has killed thousands if not hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Let’s not forget during slavery & after the freeing of the slaves, lynching of people of color & those that gave their lives trying to right a wrong by law enforcement, politicians, pastors of churches, etc. So the evils of the earth are not in just one country, but has spread like wildfire all over God’s world. Greed is the reason for so much evil & killings in the world. Why can’t people, live & let live & let’s make this world a better place for our children & grandchildren. No one is better than the other & everyone needs to be treated fairly unless they are an evil prerson, they only deserve what they have done & are doing to others. So to all the evils of this earth, regardless of race, color, creed, ethnicity, sex, etc., the evils you leave on this earth will be a thousand times worst for your children & grandchilden. Hmmmmm something to think about.

“…the dictator, who has been stuck at the military rank of colonel for 42 years,…”

Does that mean he still has to call a Libyan general “sir”? The guy is in charge of the whole country, I’d a thought he would have promoted himself by now.

Who frickin cares if Qaddafi has had plastic surgery? This is typical American media trying to use propaganda to make him look bad. If he looks bad, let it be on his own merits, not something stupid like plastic surgery and hair plugs. I bet no president of the U.S. has ever had that, because the U.S. is good and pure and only dictators get that done. By the way we supported Mubarak in Egypt for 30 years, even though he was a dictator and imprisoned any dissenters and this wasn’t club med prison like Madoff gets. I guess the U.S. gets to pick which dictators we like and which we can slander. Mubarak must have been a stooge to the U.S. and that’s why he got a pass as a dictator. Qadaffi must not be a U.S. stooge.

Hey Joe: It is scalpel not scapula. A scapula is a religious image usually on wool or cotton, hung around the neck by a connecting string. Scapula refers to the shoulder bones. Yes, I know, “whatever.” Research on line takes such a small amount of time. And goes a long way to helping you look literate.

“Unlike his patient, Dr. Fabio Naccache (left) only has blood on his hands during surgery.”

Hey George, you (or whoever wrote it) really botched this caption. It should be “has blood on his hands only during surgery.” They way its written, it implies Gadhafi has blood somewhere other than his hands during surgery. Third rate.

it’s pleasure for Libians to enjoy this bloods hit and Dictatorship’ because when Southern Sudanese voted for their right on the Succession” Qaddafi was playing his roles against our failure to be dis recognize as new state within Africa therefore let Libians and their friends test and use properly this carrot stick dipped 20 cm to the honey container.

Gadhafi should step down, he’s not a superhero. No surgery will make him to look any younger; he’s an old sack. He should go to Hell…

[...] Time is running out. Rebels quickly seized Gadhafi’s stronghold of Tripoli Sunday and are spelunking every man-made cave in search of the hamburger- and plastic surgery-loving despot. [...]
