Calling Barack Obama as “our son”, Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi sent a message to the U.S. President defending his decision to attack the rebels fighting to overthrow him.

Trying to strike a personal note, Mr. Qadhafi prefaced his letter saying, “To our son, his excellency, Mr Baracka Hussein Obama. I have said to you before, that even if Libya and the United States of America enter into a war, god forbid, you will always remain a son. Your picture will not be changed.”
