Libya's Muammar Gaddafi is coming to France next week and has made clear want he wants: a tent to live in, 200 attractive French women, and some nuclear energy.
Col. Gaddafi, who has been Libya's dictator for almost four decades, has been known for bizarre activities. Reportedly he likes to dress up in drag.
Gaddafi is also said to suffer from claustrophobia and prefers to live in tents. The French government has acceded to his wish and has set one up next to the Hotel Marigny, the country's official guest house.
According to French media, the dictator also wants to "meet 200 Frenchwomen and to go to a Renault factory to see 'the working class.'"
France has been accommodating to Gaddafi as he is set to sign a nuclear energy deal.
The new French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, has moved rapidly to sign up mega nuclear deals with a host of Arab countries.
In the past week, France signed such a deal with Algeria, and this past October one with Morroco. He is reportedly offering help to the Saudis to build a nuclear reactor.
The deals mean big bucks for the French economy. But some are worried. Germany said that "the risk of proliferation rises with every country that uses nuclear energy."
