Doyle, Martin, 1956- :"Being bombed into oblivion is bad enough, but please, no crude cartoons..." 10 June 2011
- Scoop (Firm)
The cartoon shows Colonel Gaddafi of Libya saying 'Being bombed into oblivion is bad enough, but please, no crude cartoons...' Context - There are huge numbers of cartoons on Gaddafi - he is a perfect candidate for caricature. In early February 2011, major political protests against Gaddafi's government followed in the wake of demonstrations in Tunisia, Egypt and other parts of the Arab world, and quickly turned into a civil war. Gaddafi vowed to "die a martyr" if necessary in his fight against rebels and external forces, saying that those rebelling against his government deserve to die. On 17 May 2011 the International Criminal Court issued a request for an arrest warrant against Gaddafi for crimes against humanity; on 27 June, the request was approved and the Court issued the warrant.
