Khamis The Intern: Who In Their Right Mind Would Give Up Something This Promising?

The funniest story to come out of the Libya video game yet is the news that Qaddafi’s son, Khamis–one of however many the old man popped out in his big tent (Qaddafi is the original believer in the big-tent theory, with girls of all nations in the various tent zones)–has outraged the LA engineering firm called AECOM that hired him by going home and shooting down heroic rebels.

Two things: I guess this is the final word that the protesters or rebels are the heroes. Everbody got that? Synchronize your moral compasses to True North and Total Goodness.

The joke, the real one, is the outraged engineering company, AECOM. They are just plain stunned that a son of Qaddafi should turn out to be more loyal to the old man than to his internship. The internship is the cornerstone of the American economy, because you don’t have to pay them anything and the suckers seriously believe they’re working their way up into something. The notion that they might be more loyal to their billionaire dictator dad,and more excited about desert combat than bringing coffee to a dozen Dilberts off some freeway access road, goes right to the heart of the dream, dude.

In other words, these sleazy bastards hired the moron because he was a Qaddafi son and didn’t care how many people daddy was torturing in basements in Tripoli– until he embarrassed the company by defecting to his old job: chip off the old trigger finger.

I don’t know, Qaddafi seems to come off almost clean by comparison. At least he’s trying to add some fun to the world, jumping around in weird outfits and talking crazy ever-changing gibberish and sending up plumes of smoke from the desert. Y’ask me, it beats life in the Dilbert world any day. And as for sleaze–nooooo comparison.

    Gaddhafi’s son in American internship?

    Dear War Nerd,

    Breaking news: I just read that the rebels created a new oil company to sell the Libyan oil instead of evil Gaddhafi…
    And they set up a brand new Libyan central bank…
    These camelhumpers on Technicals must be some really non-CIA/Mossad/Wall Street involved lot…

  • 5. CB  |  March 30th, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    @ postman

    Glad someone is helping them get something together for if/when they take over. They’ll need those oil profits, and a bank for foreign investments. Hopefully they’re working on getting together a police force so we can have nice organized people in uniform cracking down on everyone from the wrong tribe^W^W^W^W suspected of working with Qaddafi. That’s much better than just anarchy in a power vacuum.

    @ The War Nerd

    He was a freaking intern? And they’re surprised he left when his dad was about to be rode out of town or killed if he didn’t leave? I read “hired” at first and assumed it was a full-time position and still thought “duh of course he left.” But an internship?

    Shiz, I’d ditch an internship if my dad got the flu.

    ‘Course engineering internships are usually paid (just a hella-lot less than the full-timers so from the company’s standpoint it’s still practically free labor). But honestly. That’s just stupid, thinking he might not leave.

  • 10. bene  |  March 30th, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    That’s it, Gary? A meager twentysomething lines? I mean, come on.

    I gladly volunteer to give you some ideas; just look at this AJ video from one of these recent battles for Ras Lanuf/Bin Jawad/Sirta, whatever they call those dune hideouts:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwa8tfEiyDY

    I mean, isn’t that just glorious? When I saw those endless columns of pickups and cars, I just..I don’t know, it was awesome. They are just the latest in a proud line of ancestry from the Egyptian chariots that won (well, lost) the day in Kadesh, through Subotai’s hordes and then endless Panzer columns rolling over the steppe during the Case Blue offensive….right up to those scores of armored vehicles rolling on the Baghdad highway in the summer of ’03. Come on, don’t tell me you don’t feel kind of awed and at the same time, proud for mankind for producing such a fantastic spectacle…

    The first thing I had to think about here was “swarming”; as in, this weird post-blitzkrieg tactic for both conventional battlefields and anti-guerilla means. You know, somehow get military forces, mainly infatry, to act like a swarm of hornets disassembling a nest of bees (cool things, those hornets, they chew up like 20,000 honeybees per hour). Yeah, this whole strategy is pretty weird and abstract and hard-to-get, but also very fascinating; as our equipment-heavy western troops are concerned, the main problem seems to be logistics and intelligence.

    But those Libyans? They don’t give a damn about that; they’re like the original swarm, or at least how a swarm looks to us humans, totally unorganized, chaotic, primeval. So a car breaks down or is shot up, so what? They jump up on some other pickup, desant-style. Tacticts? They don’t have any, they just drive to where the action is supposed to be and start firing wildly. Coolest stuff a 20-year-old in those parts of the world will ever have, like you never get tired of saying.

    One thing I hate about Al J, they seem to employ a lot of these brit-accented white farts. What really got me going was how he tells that proud Libyan rebel at the end “But they [your troops] are all running away!” I almost yelled “Yeah, just like you limey suckers did at Dunkirk!” at my computer screen. Damn brits, you can always count on them to totally spin everything around.

    Maybe you could also do a little speculation game here. Don’t know whether you kepp an eye on the hardware updates, but apparently they got A-10s as well as AC-130 gunships over there now. I mean, I’m not anti-war, hell no – even though our stupid German governement decided so – but escalating this whole thing…well, let’s just say I doubt Obama learned so much from his predecessor.

    So please, research a little bit there. Or just sum up your impressions from all these hours on Al Jazeera and give us some cynical insight into that world which we poor office drones will never get. I know you want to!

  • 15. What's the deal...  |  March 30th, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    …with A-10′s anyway? Can anyone fill me in on those?

    I’ve known a couple (lesser) war nerds in real life, and they just cannot agree on those planes. What I hear is either:

    -They’re ridiculous, obsolete, anti-Soviet machinery. Flying bricks, really, only still in use because they’re so cheap and admittedly durable.

    OR

    -They’re brilliant, smartly designed anti-armor machinery. Flying bricks, really, still in use because they’re so affordable, versatile, and durable. They could probably make life really miserable for attack helicopters, too, if that ever actually came up.

    Many of these comments end up in hardware-fetish territory anyway, soooo could any of you mini-nerds give me the straight dope on this?

  • 18. solfish  |  March 30th, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    A-10′s are badass. I’m not going to google the confirmed kill stats for you, but they were and are the most effective killing machine in our arsenal. Due to the proliferation of RPG’s helicopters have become death traps. The real fast movers (F-15, F-16, F-22, F/A-18) move way too fast to be effective against small groups of enemies and even the US can’t afford to be dropping laser-guided bombs every time half a dozen teenagers decide to take potshots. They are too fragile and expensive to use on anything without strategic value. The A-10 on the other hand can circle slowly and spit 30mm uranium shells at anything that looks dangerous.

    Wrong on so many counts.

    > One thing I hate about Al J, they seem to employ a lot of these brit-accented white farts.

    They employ a lot of Brit-educated, Brit-accented non-British non-whitey, ER, non-caucasian, excellent reporters. And non-snivelling-USUK_MSM-hack-reporters.

    Reporters like the excellent Riz Khan and the Rattansi brothers, Afshin and Shahid. All of whom can interview the best spokesmen of the Empire and slice and dice them and reveal them to be the lying sacks of Empire-shill-filth that they are in two minutes flat. Which a lot of the world rather enjoys.

    In fact, the entire world, apart from the deluded mushrooms of the USUK, Australia and Harper’s Reich-wing Neo-Con Canadian Nazis. And the rest of the imaginary coalition of the unwilling, consisting as it does, of the US, UK Elites, plus assorted Neo-Con stooges — Harper, Howard, Rudd, Gilliard, Berlusconi and Sarzkozy, — Whores of Empire all, — detested by the majorities of their own populations.

    For those with their heads not up the US Empire’s butt, we say “And good fucking luck to them, too. At least they’re not Fucking USUK Empire shill @rseholes. !!!”

    Having said which, Al-Jazeera as an independent source of unbiased information has been revealed to be as bent as a nine bob note, or at least as bent as the BBC. -

    I’ll admit I’m biased because I think they’re simply awesome, but objectively the A-10 is good at what it does, which is providing the kind of CAS that laughs at any armor in existence. They’ve killed a lot of tanks, and they’ve come back after being shot to hell.

    I do notice that they didn’t send in the A-10s or AC-130s, which they were obviously itching to use against those armor columns, until after the fighters had run plenty of sorties against AA and SAM sites*. Call that the weakness of the A-10, that it’s only great in the absence of serious anti-aircraft.

    And hey, that kinda implies that the ideal way to use it is as a defense against that fabled massed tank invasion of the Soviets. So maybe that means it’s “obsolete”. It still seems to be useful.

    * I guess I’m not sure if this could have been because of logistics, .eg. the planes just hadn’t arrived yet or approval was still pending. I’m guessing they didn’t want their slow-moving planes shot down, though. A few A-10s have been taken down by RPGs in Iraq.

  • 22. Mark  |  March 30th, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    I was wondering how the A-10s got to Libya. Flying from a European air base?

  • 23. my talkative ringpiece  |  March 30th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    I was an intern. I got $5 an hour (it was the 80s) and only got that, I’m convinced, because the State gave the company that much to create a job for a student.

    I believed in being worth my money. I saw the company go from a few people to well, huge. Most of you use their products just about daily. I assembled the prototypes of a good number of them.

    I did stuff. I repaired stuff, did bug reports on stuff, built test rigs and documented it, an unheard of skill around there. I did all-nighters to get working units assembled and working for trade shows. Since I couldn’t do it all alone, I eggs other students on and got enough work out of ‘em to get ‘er done.

    The other students fucked off. They were smart. I was the stupid fucking idiot.

    My reward was: Going on to work as a repair tech making less than the guys in the warehouse. Success would have been learning to drive a forklift. Forklifts look so damn much FUN anyway. I’d have had a fucking gas. Frankly, I like big powerful machines that you can get into a lot of trouble in. Yes, I’ve gotten into the trouble, plenty of it. I heal up and go back for more. I think having no depth perception helps. I’d be a helo pilot if the FAA would let me. Boo, square ol’ FAA.

    Blessed are the fuckoffs, for hard work won’t get you much of anywhere. Blessed also are the born-with-connections. Blessed most of all are the well-connected fuckoffs.

  • 24. postman  |  March 30th, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    CB,

    I am glad, too.
    Now that Gaddhafi’s financial assets are freezed, so the international bankers can send the money back to the poor Libyan widows and give every pro-democracy Libyan a welfare check out of that money, they have to think of the future.
    Without proper banking, those camelhumpers would piss away the oil money on blond white-trash whores and on snorting coke. Better to keep them from temptation, and take care of their money for them.

    > I almost yelled “Yeah, just like you limey suckers did at Dunkirk!” at my computer screen.

    And USans wonder why they are now as popular as the Nazis (Gore Vidal’s line) after the eight years of the Cheney junta and the genocide of 1.6m Iraqis and of 3m Afghans (mostly by starvation).

    > Damn brits, you can always count on them to totally spin everything around.

    Brecher covered this rather well. The US Empire couldn’t organize a piss up in a brewery. The Nazi’s were heavy-metal-@rseholes whose thousand year Reich was over by year twelve.

    But for a murderous, genocidal Empire that lasted 300 years and ruled a third of the wold, you need a slimy Brit colonial governor moaning about the natives, while his civil servants arrange for one faction to slaughter the other, while the Brits trouser the resources every time. No change there, then. At least, not based on the news coming from Libya.

    “But they did it smart, not like the idiot boastful Nazis y’all love to obsess on. I bet every one on the planet can name the Nazi death camps, but I’d be surprised if more than, say, a half dozen people outside Sri Lanka can name the policy the Brits used to destroy the Sinhala for good.”

    “Anybody? Didn’t think so. See, here’s another little tip for up’n’coming genocidaires out there: always pick the most boring name possible. Those fucking Nazis, with their heavy-metal jewelry and titles! Dopes! You want extermination programs with names that put everybody to sleep.”

    “And that’s why in 1818 Britain brought “the wasteland policy” to Kandy. They could have called it what that Liberian wacko called his campaign: “Operation No Living Thing.” That’s what it meant: Brit-led troops “draining the sea” the Sinhala irregulars swam in by burning every hut, every field, and killing every animal in every village they suspected of harboring “rebels.” –

    He certainly does seem almost clean.

    It’s kind of funny tho’ despite all the ‘bad ass’ firepower arrayed against him, Kaddaffi is winning militarily, and well. It’s the rebels, those son’s of liberty, who are playing victim. More mirth is provided by the fact that people’s enthusiasm for air power way out strips it’s decisiveness. Final lesson kiddies- fourth generation war theory- proved nonsense, again.

    Internship is not the cornerstone of the economy, although I admit it sounds funny, so all right.

    Internship is actually a good way of getting experience, which looks good in your CV, IF you are wise and choose the right company. A friend recommended choosing a Western company in Hong Kong; the girls there throw themselves at Western men. Geeky men too, they don’t care – Westerners are exciting to these girls, and they are brought up geeky, doing nothing but study. It’s like Geek Heaven. (Don’t pick expensive Japan.)

    Gaddhafi’s son in American internship?
    Right before all hell brakes loose at home?
    For me that spells CIA, I do not know what others will make of it…

    Well, we know that Qaddafi has been working with the CIA against Islamists like al-Qaeda since 2004. Surprised me that they turned on him; no doubt they needed an opportunity to cozy up to the Arab revolutionary movements, which are otherwise anti-Israel and therefore anti-Washington.

    moved inexorably as the wind blew from the west and sucked from the east.

    Which reminds me of my sainted ma, who once whored for the Koch Bros Matador Cattle Co in Montana. She herded cows with an F-22, super-tuned by Heriberto Lazcana’s Zetas. Norm’s Rod Shop did the body and paint. Ma never got to go to Libya. But me and my Coolpix did.

  • 36. Jack Boot  |  March 31st, 2011 at 10:31 am

    @ Partice Lumumba
    Quite so; does anyone remember a 1960s TV series called “The Rat Patrol”?
    Set in N. Africa circa 1942, it starred 4 Allied dudes (one of them a Brit, mirabile dictu!) riding 2 Jeeps, each armed with a Browning M2 .50 cal.
    It goes without saying that they single-handedly defeated the entire Afrika Korps.

    I suspect that quite a few Africans have watched Rat Patrol re-runs.
    Of course, they’ve updated the concept with dead-nuts reliable Toyota diesel 4×4 pickups;
    armed with good, solid, sand-tolerant Russian hardware (12.7mm & 14.5mm machine guns, 23mm ZSU automatic cannons, ATGMs, etc). The Somali term for them is the rather euphemistic “Technicals”.

    Apparently, Khaddafi’s lads have abandoned their tanks (mobile crematoria, don’t you know) in favour of their own Technicals – unmarked, of course.
    That way, NATO pilots can’t tell ‘tother from which.

    So now it’s Tech vs. Tech – a fair fight, in a “Mad Max” sort of way…
