Moammar Khadafy’s last line of defense — even as he is hiding out from the allied assault — wear lipstick and high heels.
They are 40 sexy trained killers — all virgins — in what Libya calls the Amazonian Guard, a specially trained unit that protects the colonel’s life around the clock at home and when he travels.
When Khadafy visited Rome two years ago, all eyes were on his Kalashnikov-toting entourage, dressed in fashionable khaki, designer sunglasses and red berets.
He created the Tripoli Women’s Military Academy in 1979, the only police-training school in the Arab world that only admits women.
Khadafy said he did it because “I promised my mother to improve the situation of women in Libya.”
Entrants to the academy spend three years learning the arts of hand-to-hand combat, and firing rocket-propelled grenades, and how to assemble and disassemble a rifle.
Each candidate has to swear that they are and will remain a virgin, and are willing to give up their lives to save Khadafy’s.
Competition to enter the school is described as brisk, and Khadafy himself chooses which graduates get to join his entourage, as “revolutionary nuns.”
“Without the leader, women in Libya would be nothing,” a 27-year-old academy trainee named Fatia told Canadian journalist Jane Kokan in a documentary about the Amazons. “He gave us life. I am ready to die for him.”
One explanation for an all-women entourage, according to Western analysts, is that Khadafy believes would-be assassins might try to kill him, but wouldn’t want to harm women.
The spirit of Forbidding To Marry is everywhere. Catholic roots finds its place even in the Muslim world. I’m surprised Khadafy doesn’t call them Nuns with Guns in this Idol worship (SMH). Pray for the deliverance of those in Libya who are believers in this trying time as all Christians across the globe. The time is near folks!
