Just finished watching the speeches of Dilma Rousseff and Barack Obama live at the UN General Assembly debate that is taking place right now.

Click on the faces to hear Platon’s audio commentary for each photo — though I feel that sometimes he just made things up, especially for the leaders of insignificant nations. Platon said that the Zambian leader’s face is beautiful (heh). Gaddafi was then still the leader of Libya. The leader of Madagascar looked like a young boy. Lech Kaczynski was still alive.
