Thanks, Diana, also for the Lawrence Auster link. To be honest, Qaddafis death doesnt just leave me cold. It leaves me feeling sick to my stomach. And I think I will be feeling sick for many days to come.
As Lawrence Auster correctly says, we killed him. There is no way that the erstwhile rebels would have ever defeated him or captured him without our hellfire missiles and the French Mirages. Actually, they probably could have done without the Mirages. Despite all of Sarkozys preening, it was American military might that brought down Qaddafi and handed him over to the lynch mob that killed him. I dont know if you have seen this video yet. If not, take a deep breath before you do. If Americans are not revolted by such behavior, then we have ourselves descended into total barbarism.
There is one further point re. Qaddafis relationship with the United States my apologies if Ive mentioned this before and Im repeating myself. Actually, there are reasons to doubt Libyan responsibility for both the Berlin disco bombing and the Lockerbie bombing.
Re. the Berlin disco bombing, I think most Americans dont realize that the bomber was in fact German. She was tried and convicted. She had been married to a Palestinian guy who is alleged to have had contacts with Libyan intelligence though she was no longer even married to him at the time that she planted the bomb.

The way they killed him appears to be a war crime, for one
So how does the royal family in Saudi Arabia feel about their future right now?
Will we support an uprising there? Or in Iran? Or North Korea?
Nevermind the fact, that the people who killed Qadafi approved of the Lockerbie Bombing, and his other attacks.
“We” will support the installation of a Sharia-compliant Islamic government.
I don't think Obowma would support a rebellion in Saudi.
Like 1979 all over again!!
Not going to shed any tears over the death of a tyrant, but anyone who isn’t expecting the coming Arab Winter is a doe-eyed fool.
He died as he lived, I for one won’t weep.
I dont believe our Founding Fathers would ever have supported the murder of another countries leader.Obama has now murdered 2 world leaders.
We need to think on that long and hard.
Like it or not, Kadaffi (who knows how it spelled!) kept a group of warring tribes from each others’ throats, through bribery and intimidation. We’ll see what the new overlords do to keep peace; we’ll see if France and Italy get their oil, or if sabotage puts a damper on that.
Every tin horn like hugo chavez, assad,castro,and them saudi punks etc are a little uncomfortable today.
I’m having a brain fade. Osama Bin Laden wasn’t a country’s head, so who was #2?
“Or in Iran?”
There was one. 0bama said nothing. Congress did nothing.
Neda is the face of that uprising.
Good Job Obama!
The royal family feels totally safe, thank you.
The US has had a defense agreement with Saudi for a long time — even before Saudis decided to bring down the WTC towers.
Expect American blood to be spilled if the sh*t were to hit the fan(s) in order to keep the king, princes and princesses in their palaces in a life of opulence.
Of course, should the Saudi population be successful in ousting the royal family, you can expect its members to build their palaces right here in America.
So have various communist dictators, Tito in Yugoslavia for one.
Was it Tacitus who said something like, "They made a desert and called it peace"? Some things never change, as the Preacher saaid long ago, "There is nothing new under the sun".
Take Saudi oil off the market and THEN see what happens... Our ‘allies’ in Europe will be in deep doo doo. Serves them right.
I pity our fine Military for being sworn to follow the orders of this CiC... I do not blame them in any way. I blame obama and every leftist serving in our government... official or otherwise. obama is a murderer. I am ashamed that this evil and illegal intervention happened in our name. kadaffy deserved death for his evil... but he deserved justice under the laws of man. Revenge is GOD’s domain.
He was an evil man from everything I’ve heard but I have also had a horrible feeling about his death. If we can sanction such animalism, what are we? Who are we? I have nothing against a death penalty but in a humane way.
I am astonished they didn’t cut off his head, stick it on a pike and take it on a victory tour of the country...
I consider the coming regime far worse from a standpoint of US interests... which is all I care about
