What Qaddafi says about ...

The Soviet Union: ``The US is aiming at encirclement of the Soviet Union through us. As a result, we and the Soviets find ourselves facing a common enemy. ... ``We are needed as a springboard against the Soviets, who are the real object of American policy. ...

``Our relations with the Soviet Union are the natural consequence of American actions. ... We are now involved in a joint struggle. ... [US actions] have resulted in promoting and even strengthening Soviet-Libyan relations.'' The American people: They should ``elect a president ... qualified to lead, to be a proper president. ... Now Israelis are governing the US and I advise the American people to put an end to it. ...

``It's a pretty serious precedent to have Israelis running American foreign policy.'' Reagan: ``He is regarded by the whole world as finished, health-wise and morally. ... He's lost his credibility. ...

``I said he was not qualified to be president ... and it's turned out to be true. His scandalous role in the Iranian arms deal, his secret dealings, prove it. A real president wouldn't resort to behaving like a thief or a child.'' US-Libyan relations: ``Relations will improve, I'm sure, after the end of the Reagan administration. ... Americans must have drawn their conclusions about the policy of hostility toward Libya.'' The future: ``In the event of any more aggression from the US, I would have no option but to form a secret international army to attack American interests everywhere.'' Libya: ``We are a people ... often oppressed ... occupied by Italy in 1911. ... ``Last year the most powerful state in the world attacked Libya. ...

``We have not been left alone to live in peace and build up our country. ... Hence we feel bitter. ... We could eventually be driven to retaliate. ... Our people have never felt the taste of independence except under the revolution....

``We are still suffering from ... the European domination of our people and attempts made to make our people lose their self-confidence.''
