On Those Crazy Quaddafis

From this article:
Mr. Qaddafi [Saadi el-Qaddafi, Muammar el-Qaddafi's son], of course, comes from a colorful family used to making headlines. His only sister, Ayesha, is studying law in Paris and has signed on to Saddam Hussein's defense team. His youngest brother, Hannibal, has a penchant for speeding and getting into scuffles with the police: earlier this year he reportedly brandished a 9-millimeter handgun after beating up a woman in a Paris hotel. Another brother, Moatassim, was caught four years ago trying to buy tanks and short-range missiles for his personal army brigade. "My father said, 'These are very aggressive weapons and you are still young, maybe when you get a bit older,' " Mr. Qaddafi said, laughing.
Read the Libyan leader's response one more time. It alternates between hilarious and horrifying, and probably in that order.
