Gadhafi is a Bond Villain

Well any doubt lingering about Gadhafi's sanity can now be safely dismissed. According to CNN:

 Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Thursday blamed the violence in his country on young people, who he said are taking some sort of pills and being exploited by Osama bin Laden.

Which has led me to the conclusion - Those bond villains were not that far from the truth. Sure they were one dimensional insane characters but hey it seems real life is imitating art. There is even the classic Bondesque twist..the villain was a member of the UN Human Rights Council - never would have expected him to turn out to be the arch killing madman! However I understand how the world was fooled for so long about Gadhafi. Contrary to what we have been taught to believe in how to spot crazy villains ( dismissing the culturally explainable signs such as the repression and killing of libyan citizins), Gadhafi does not wear a bowler hat, not does he appear in public holding a cat.
