Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi still has a few friends left in Latin America.
We know that Hugo Chavez, Venezuela's charismatic president, supports him because he can't stop talking about it.
With the Libyan rebels firing celebration guns in Tripoli, Chavez came out with a second statement that said he refused to acknowledge any government in Libya but that of his friend. "Without a doubt, we're facing imperal madness," Chavez said in his televised address, according to the Associated Press.
And now, Nicaragua has chimed in.
President Daniel Ortega has been a longtime ally of Gaddafi. In February, he said he called the Libyan leader to offer support amid the popular uprising. No word on whether he's made any calls lately. But an Ortega adviser said that his government would be glad to welcome Gaddafi to the Central American nation -- that is, if he could make it.
"I do not know how Gaddafi could get here from Libya," the adviser, Bayardo Arce, is quoted as telling the Associated Press. "We do not have an embassy in Libya." But Arce said Nicaragua would be glad to consider an asylum request for the leader, if he happened to get in touch from wherever he's hiding.

One can always spot the agitprop pretending to be journalism, because of phrases lilke “Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s charismatic president”. It’s always something like that, “mighty leader”, “worldwide significance”, etc. IOW, horse nuggets.
By the way, I used to go to school with Kay Paca.
Pass the Popcorn ping.
With so many nations in South America and Central America firmly in the Socialist Camp ‘Gad Fly’ should have no trouble finding a suitable place to spend his declining years and amazing fortune.
It is easy to spot the moles when something like this happens.
The sad part was who responded positively when Zelaya was removed by the government.
There were far to many in the U.S. who disapproved of that one.
Qaddafi is sitting on 5 billion bucks. There would many dozens of countries that will welcome him and his money....... OK, for half that he can stay in my guestroom..... I know that sounds greedy and self-serving, I don’t want anyone to compare me to Chavez or Mugabe. Alright, one billion and not a penny less.
He’d probably have a buttload of great stories. And I’m sure he’d make a great long-term houseguest, give or take A) his hygiene and B) his babe bodyguards.
