It's no secret that the style of dress and conduct of politics of the leader of the Libyan Jamahiriya, Muammar Gaddafi, will hardly be called modern and normal by anyone. And while world politicians appear in the light surrounded by beautiful ladies, Muammar was different from everyone and dressed them in military uniforms. For many, it is still a mystery why the Libyan dictator preferred to see only women in his guard, and even more so only virgins. However, the following is known about these mysterious bodyguard maidens:
1. They were all virgins who took a vow of chastity before officially becoming Gaddafi's bodyguards.
2. Muammar Gaddafi himself believed that by creating such a female squad of virgin bodyguards, he contributed to the empowerment of women. His statement on this matter is known: "Women should be prepared for battle so that they do not become easy prey for their enemies."
3. All women in the squad are trained killers, trained in martial arts and were personally selected by Gaddafi.
4. Female bodyguards were allowed to wear makeup, jewelry, manicures and even high-heeled shoes.
5. The entire female detachment swore an oath to Gaddafi that they would give their lives to protect him, if necessary, and therefore these trained killers in female disguise do not leave their master, day or night.
6. In 1998, Islamic fundamentalists in Libya staged an attack on the colonel's motorcade. One bodyguard, already wounded, rushed to protect the leader with her body and was killed, seven more girls were injured.
7. Despite the statements of Muammar Gaddafi that the guards must be chaste, there was some information that he still demanded that they provide sexual services.
