Libya ends public showing of Gaddafi's body (dispute of burial)
Yahoo news ^ | 24 October 2011 | Rania El Gamal

The burials {of Gaddafi, his son and his former army chief} have been held up by wrangling between the emerging factions within the National Transitional Council over where they should be interred. NTC leaders want Gaddafi buried at a secret location so the place does not become a shrine.

Gaddafi's tribe, centered on the city of Sirte where he made his last stand, has asked for the body so they can bury it there. Gaddafi requested to be buried in Sirte in his will.

If they can't even decide on whether or not to bury Gaddafi, let alone when or where, how can they ever run a country?

I'm becoming more and more convinced that not all countries are ready for democracy.

The islamic world was positivley up in arms over whether Osama bin Laden got a proper muslim burial, but for Qaddafi and his son: ...few Libyans are troubled about either how they were killed or why they were exposed to public view for so long. Islamic tradition dictates burial within a day.

He is really ripe by now. De comp set in fast without him being in a deep freeze. They will run the country by Sharia law. Kill any that don’t agree. Democracy will have nothing to do with it jda.

Drop the bastards from a helicopter 100 miles out at sea and be done with it.

“What happened to the islamic tradition to being buried at sea...?”

There isn’t one. Short of no-alternative scenarios, islam is quite clear that such disposal should be avoided at all costs.

We’re seeing why dumping bin Laden at sea was a good idea.

“We’re seeing why dumping bin Laden at sea was a good idea.”

Why should we just assume Hussein told the truth about that?

Who said SEALs are stupid, and how does your response answer the question of why are we to assume Hussein told the truth about that operation or anything else?

I said they aren’t.

They’re smart enough to resolve the situation such that whatever Hussein said is irrelevant.
They’re smart enough to dispose of bin Laden such that he won’t be a problem, and that Hussein doesn’t have a choice in the matter.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Stuff him and show him in a special tomb like Lenin in Russia. That would be the best end for him—Maybe with a pig or two beside him.
