(Newser) – Moammar Gadhafi has written a rambling but cordial letter to President Obama in which he wishes him luck in 2012 but pleads with Obama to stop "an unjust war," reports AP. Some excerpts, complete with typos:

  • "You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action."
  • "Despite all this you will always remain our son whatever happened. We still pray that you continue to be president of the U.S.A. We Endeavour and hope that you will gain victory in the new election campaigne."

  • "As you know too well democracy and building of civil society cannot be achieved by means of missiles and aircraft, or by backing armed member of AlQuaeda in Benghazi."
  • "Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama, your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair. Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame."
