Bloodied, wearing just a pair of khaki trousers, and dumped on a cheap mattress, Muammar Gaddafi's body has become a gruesome tourist attraction and a macabre symbol of the new Libya's problems.
Hundreds of ordinary Libyans queued up outside a refrigerated meat store in Misrata, where the dead dictator was being stored as a trophy. A guard allowed small groups into the room to celebrate next to Gaddafi's body. They posed for photos, flashing victory signs, and burst into jubilant cries of "God is great."
Wounds on Gaddafi's body appeared to confirm that he was indeed killed in cold blood in the chaotic minutes following his capture on Thursday. He was found in the town of Sirte, hiding in a drainage pipe. There was a close-range bullet wound on the left side of his head. Blood stains showed another bullet wound to his thorax. His body, subsequently driven to Misrata and publicly paraded, was barefoot and stripped to the waist.
This display came amid a row inside the Transitional National Council (NTC) over what to do with Gaddafi's body. Libya's interim prime minister, Mahmoud Jibril, arrived in Misrata to talk with local NTC representatives. They have made it abundantly clear they do not want Gaddafi to be buried in their town. The NTC leadership in Tripoli wants a solution quickly. One popular option is to bury him at sea, as Osama bin Laden was.

Note to self:
Run to store and get steaks.
They sub-humans. What can one expect from them?
It sounds very hygienic.
Way too many possible jokes here. But this is serious. We have mobs in the streets. They just haven’t taken it to the next step.
Obama is evil.
He’s on display right next to the A-1 Sauce...
Burial at Aisle C
Whatever happened to muslims not killing muslims? Another lie from the religion of pieces. Bin Laden gets a burial at sea, and Daffy gets a meat locker. It should have been the other way around.
These people are cavedwelling savages.
Is he considered, Halal?
I thought he had to be buried within a day?? Isn’t that Islamic Law?
Yeh, that’s him between the rib eye and the Porterhouse.

Frankie Carbone feels his pain.
Un-civilized? Remember what happened to Benito Mussolini’s body in 1945? Last time I heard Italy was a civilized nation. I am glad he is shot—but I would like to know what happened in the minutes after his capture—maybe the bullets were shot into him after his death? He killed so many people—it was to be expected.
Nothing as inspiring as pictures of dead commies.
I will probably get flamed for this....so be it.
I find this truly disturbing. If a certain “someone” was taken out this way, I certainly would NOT line up to take a gruesome pic of it.
Might I be happy inside the dictator is dead? Yes. But I do not relish in death, nor would I want a momentum of it. I would take it as an opportunity to move on.
Animals amongst animals is how I see it. Perhaps I have been spoiled born red, white and blue, up till now, but this is just sick.
