Portrait of a tyrant: who is the real Gaddafi?
Issued on: Modified:
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?
