Portrait of a tyrant: who is the real Gaddafi?

In power for over 40 years, Libya’s Muammar Gadhafi is the Arab world’s longest serving leader. He was once dubbed the mad dog of the middle east by US President Ronald Reagan and this week he lived up to his nickname by promising to annihilate his opponents in a ranting hour long speech. Just how far is Gadhafi prepared to go in order to hold on to power?

  • Ziad MAJED, Adjunct Instructor of Middle East Studies, American University of Paris
  • Douglas HERBERT, France24 International Affairs Editor
  • Pr Ahmed OKASHA, Chairman of the Psychiatric Health Resort in Cairo (By satellite from Cairo)

Program produced by Perrine Desplats and Yi Song.

Watch the 2nd part.
