Another relief, less evil in the world. I hope his death can now bring peace and harmony to all people in Libya as well as other regions of Maghreb.

the Arab world should be embarrased.
These types of videos demonstrate that they are all animals.
Completely unrefined.

It's a different culture out there. Perhaps throwing a shoe at Qaddafi would be pointless but sitting on his face means a lot.

Wasn't there an old saying that "the revolution will not be televised?" I guess in this case, it didn't count. While Gadhafi was no saint and a monster to his people, the images of his being hunted down like a dog in a storm drain are not exactly comforting. Maybe it's just the shock of just seeing the photos just a few minutes ago and how we'll be bombarded with them for days to come. Kudos to the Libyan rebels, but bloody violence is still bloody violence. I won't be watching.

It was a song by Gil Scott-Heron. He passed away in May.

"[T]he former leader had been hiding in a hole surrounded by bodyguards."

Why is it that so many of these dictators are killed/captured in holes like rats?

The same reason the filthy rich plutocrat rats here in America need protection from the masses.

The Libyan revolution for freedom and democracy has a lot of similarities to the Occupy Together 99% Movement here in America. We are all trying to throw off the yoke of the few in extreme power (here it is the Top 1%) who are trying to compromise our rights, steal our freedoms and control our lives.

Libyan rebels had shown hints of Al Qaeda and Hezbolah terrorists organizations among them.....I guess that's the case of the 99% bowel movement that crapped on every town.

EmpireGeorge, since 74% of Americans agree with Occupy Wall Street's concerns, you just called 74% of the American people terrorists. Would you like to rephrase?
by EmpireGeorge-_ October 20, 2011 4:44 PM EDT
arthanyel, I don't re-phrase, I mean what I wrong....."I guess that must mean that the 99% Occupy Together also shows signs of Al Qaeda and Hezbolah"......since noloyalista says they "have a lot of similarities" to the rebels.

SO, if they have similarities, and the NATO commander says rebels showed inflitration by terrorist groups, then the 99% must be similar.

SO, if you have questions, ask Noloyalista, who said that the movement resembled the terrorist infiltrated libyan rebels.

I think those that obtained what they have by legal means, have every right to be greedy if they wish.


Amigo EmpireGeorge-_,

Legal means Not Illegal per status or act of the U.S. Congress. Not Illegal also means not in the Law to Enforce.

The problem is never what is Legal or Not Illegal explicitly per a Status or Act.

The problem is always doing something greedy never reviewed or debated or discussed.

I am sure you have or had kids in your house. As a Parent, you say "Don't paint on the Wall" to your kids. Then, the kid paints on the chairs, etc. until you explicitly instruct him/her "Don't paint on the chair". Next, the kid paints the table, etc. until your explicitly instruct him/her, etc.

Our Corporate leaders always act like kids in the name of Greed.

Greed is like Cancer. We never know we have it until it is too late.

I think it is good to see the results of killing and war in the mainstream media, it reminds us of our violent and primitive nature.

By the way, big congratulations to President Barack Obama in leading another successful military operation. What a good commander in chief he has turned out to be, maybe the best since Eisenhower.

That would exclude AIG and Wall Street, Imp. You're beginning to flip-flop, again.

You appear to have me confused with somebody else. I have always been 1pheasant1. No need to change my ID, as I have never been banned, and multiple IDs are for trolls, which I am not. Now get back to your flip-flopping!
by EmpireGeorge-_ October 20, 2011 3:50 PM EDT
well then pi$$ off doosh bag.
by 1pheasant1 October 20, 2011 4:04 PM EDT
That was a flop, Imp. You're only doing half of your job!

I find it highly ironic/disturbing/disgusting that, if the picture accompanying this article had a naked person in the background, the naked person would be blurred out and the picture of a dead boy would be left untouched.

What kind of a disgusting society goes nuts over Janet Jackson's "Wardrobe malfunction" but is ok with dead bodies (bloody ones at that)?
