So irritating

"Col Gaddafi's tribe, the Qadhadfa" this is definitely the most blatant example of inconsistent Arabic-to-English transliteration I've seen in a long time. If you're going to render his name as 'Gaddafi' then you'll have to render his tribe's name as 'Gaddafa' seeing how the two words have the same letters except for the last one.
