Eight U.S.-built C-130 Hercules military transports bought by Libya are sitting in a field on the grounds of Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Georgia. Moammar Gaddafi bought the planes but, when politics shifted, the U.S. military grounded them. Now the crazy dictator wants a $70 million refund.
When Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi stepped out on state television yesterday to announce it was raining, the strange vehicle he was in was a Tuk-Tuk, which is a type of enclosed, motorcycle or bike-powered rickshaw. His may be armored.
When you're the divinely-chosen leader of your country, like Moammar Gadhafi, you can pretty much get whatever you want. Behold the Gadhafi-designed, Italian-built Libyan "Rocket Car." And by "Rocket Car," we really mean powered by an itty-bitty V6.
