Colonel Gaddafi defends taliban at the UN

"If the Taliban wants to make a religious state, okay, like the Vatican. Does the Vatican constitute a danger against us? No," said Colonel Gaddafi The Australian

LIBYAN President Muammar Gaddafi launched a spirited defence of Afghanistan's hardline Taliban overnight in a rambling address to the UN General Assembly.

"Why are we against the Taliban? Why are we against Afghanistan?" he asked leaders of more than 120 nations attending the annual General Assembly debate.

"If the Taliban wants to make a religious state, okay, like the Vatican. Does the Vatican constitute a danger against us? No," said the Libyan leader, addressing the 192-member body for the first time in his 40 years in power.

An islamic state is nothing like the Vatican. Does the Vatican put apostates to death? Does it cover women from head to toe? Does it allow physical abuse against disobedient wives? Does it chop off the hands of thieves? Does it ban music? Does it allow men to marry girls at the age of 9? I can go on for a while.
