[Colonel Gaddafi]. 22 February 2011

Caricature of Colonel Gaddafi of Libya taking a casual stance as he holds under his arm a Libyan flag in the shape of the country that has a sputtering wick attached to it and cocking a machine gun. A second version has the red part of the flag running as though it is blood. Context - Libya is the latest in a string of Middle Eastern dictatorship-ruled countries in which there has been a very strong popular uprising. Colonel Gaddafi has retaliated savagely against his own people.
