I would not take your bet until I see a photo. There must be ten million carmeras around but strangely enough we never get anyone to take a pic.

Yup, just wait until the inevitable takeover by muslim fanatics. They'll make what Gadaffi did look like a walk in the park.

A rare voice of sanity here at FR... refreshing.

Besides rabid muzzies taking over there, plus the flood of ex-Libyan weapons spreading all over the world, and the atrocities being committed against the losing side, good luck ever getting a 3rd-world country to give up on nuclear weapons.

A national government's first duty is to the safety and security of the nation and its people - Iran, North Korea and any other weak nation will use what we did to Libya as justification to develop or increase their only possible deterrent to the threat from the US/NATO, and I for one don't blame them in the least.

Of course!

Just like we were better off when the shah was deposed in Iran!

When folks at this late date are still praising this 'Arab Spring' and can't see that all it is is the acceleration of the total takeover by the forces of islam, I just gotta shake my head.

(Good post, btw.)

We didn’t need a photo for Hussein’s last “gutsy decision”.

Well put and 100% spot on - Why this (assassination) and why now? Gaddafi was never to be trusted, but he did give up his WMDs and we were treating him like any other fine “ally” in the WOT. It all stinks to high heaven —my own Govt. is trying to bring similar chaos right here to the USA. All a pretense to bring on Marshall law before the 2012 election.

They showed a photo of what is supposed to be Ghadafi “dead”, confirmed by NATO. I guess we’ve popped off another one.

On my way in, I heard on the radio that his
escape convoy was hit by a NATO air-strike.

The ‘rebels’ just did the clean-up.

He was born in Sirte and has died there.

I heard a family member of the Lockerbee dead praise Obama to the nines for doing a great job. We shall soon hear from Howdy Doody on what a great job he is doing.

You go away for a few days and something like this happens. Some people really know how to celebrate Simchat Torah.

I know Libya's new rulers will probably be a thousand times worse, but I can't help but feel a twinge of satisfaction when someone the Russkis, Castro, Chavez, Farrakhan, and Willis Carto idolized bites the big one.
