Bunga bunga Berlusconi sinks to new depths with Gaddafi

February 22, 2011

As Gaddafi threatens more bloodshed and seems to be increasingly removed from reality, the eastern part of Libya including Benghazi is clearly no longer under his control. He does not seem to be on his way to Venezuela but is looking to his special relationship with Berlusconi.

ABC News reports that bunga bunga Berlusconi is now providing further support to his friend Gaddafi by telephone:

Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi has spoken by telephone with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi amid a bloody crackdown by Libyan forces on anti-government protesters.

A one-sentence statement from Berlusconi’s office late Tuesday said the phone call took place in the afternoon. It gave no details.

Berlusconi has called Gadhafi his “friend” and has entertained the Libyan leader several times in Rome.

With Italy’s Eni, the main foreign operator in Libya taking home a full one-third of the north African nation’s oil production, it is no surprise that a succession of Italian governments have sought a cozy relationship with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi — none less than the extravagant embrace by current Premier Silvio Berlusconi.
