Re: Gaddafi Dead

We're still waiting for absolute proof he is dead.
There are some pretty gruesome pictures about but no solid proof.

Gaddafi dead. Supplies of Libyan oil back on stream to the world markets.
More available oil = lower prices.

Re: Gaddafi Dead

I can't say I take any pleasure from seeing the one time "friend" of the west, and Tony Blair, slaughtered like a mad dog.
Best that can be said is that in avoiding a trial many politicians have been saved from yet more embarrassment. The same happened to Bin Laden even though it was clear he must have had valuable intelligence on terrorist activity.
And the people dragging Gaddafi's corpse around, they're going to bring peace and tranquillity to Libya?

Re: Gaddafi Dead

So the UN wants a inquiry into the circumstances of Gaddafi's death...
To take a totally cynical view; one can imagine a bunch of poor international lawyers having been deprived of the vast income of years of legal wrangling regarding a trial of Bin Laden; were probably planning extensions to their mansions on the strength of years of legal wrangling when Gaddafi was captured and brought to trial.
All they have to look forward to now is the years of legal wrangling surrounding an inquiry.
No wonder they want an inquiry.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

  Well they are well armed, motivated with power and eemingly little or no moral responsibility......scary!
The brutal treatment and subsequent murder of Gaddafi by the "rebels" compounded by lying officials trying to cover it up is no different to what was being done by Gaddaffi and his cronies in the past.
Nothing much seems to have been changed by this civil war in Libya

Re: Gaddafi Dead

Do any of us really have the right to comment as we have no concept of what it was like living under a regime like Gaddafi's.
So someone put a  9mm to his temple, so what!

Re: Gaddafi Dead

@nadger, I have to agree with you.  It was an oppressive regime the people were living under and their reactions are only to be expected.

Libya is one of Europe's nearest neighbours and should be an economic partner.

Re: Gaddafi Dead

I'm sure the West will be doing all in its power to ensure Libya looks in our direction.  Once a government is established there will be many business opportunities that we will be keen to get involved with.

Re: Gaddafi Dead

I don't condone their behaviour but I can understand it.  He tortured many of his own people over many years and perhaps his end was predictable.
