Muammar Gaddafi's 'trophy' body on show in Misrata meat store

Muammar Gaddafi's 'trophy' body on show in Misrata meat store
Libyans queue to see dictator's body as wounds appear to confirm he was killed in cold blood

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Don’t whine, Guardian. You cheered this war on. Now accept your responsibility for helping propagandize a leftist war fought on the wrong side, to help bring Muslim terrorists to power.

That country is going to be a cess pit, a danger to civilization, and you share the responsibility for backing these NATO-led atrocities.

I am saddened that I had to read through 19 posts before I read something that lines up with my view of this.

This was a human being created by God. He chose to live an evil life, and it is probably a good thing that he is gone. but he was a human nonetheless. s And his body should not be desecrated.

I was very disturbed this morning to see the NY Post’s front page making a bit joke of this. On top of it, Brian Kilmeade on Fox News laughed and joked about the front page. Disgusting.

Not even comparable to America - everybody is forgetting that Gaddafi was a dictator. He created a secret police to inform on Libyans, he had many political dissenters executed over the years, and personally supervised quite a few of the executions. Such people are lucky to leave office under their own terms or alive for that matter.

The behavior you referred to is typical for Koranimals. They skinned an Italian General alive (after promising free passage the defenders in return for the Italian surrender of a disputed fort) - and then they made a skin sack inflated it with air and proudly displayed it for centuries.

Koranimals being Koranimalistic is nothing new.

Islam Delenda est - because of what Islam is, because of what Moslims do.

I agree with you that the barbarism on display is cause for concern. A greater cause for concern is Hillary Clintons frivolity during an interview on network news when she laughing said, "We came, we saw, he died!", then fiendishly, sardonically broke into laughter.

Like an earlierl freeper said, "The death of a man may be necessary but is never a cause for joy."

But, to quote Babu on Seinfeld, "He was a bedi, bedi bad man. A bedi bad man."
