    Yep, scrotum face got his comeuppance. Still, rejoicing in someone's death is always wrong, and I find it quite distasteful that so many international power players are cheering because he's been lynched. Cheer because the Libyan people are free, not because a man's been butchered.

    I can't wait for the real fun to start as all the different region's rebel groups, all quite heavily armed now, begin arguing (and eventually warring) over which stupid tribe of extremist sunni's gets what amount of control and of what.

    I love how when dictators are killed, their people pick their bones clean and vie for control.

    Like monkeys.

    No longer 'their people'.

    No different than any other country in this world.

    We're all monkeys.

    I agree with David's sentiments, 100%.

    I find the whole thing distateful. Eric's right insomuch as it's just the beginning of another round in a civil war, yet you would barely think that from the press coverage his death as received, or the speeches various world "leaders" have made once it had been confirmed.

    I saw a a series of photos of him chumming it up with our "leaders" and they didn't look remotely bothered about his scrambled egg face reigning terror over the people of Libya at that stage. The prescience of 1984 leaks through again because it's been less than a year since we were chummy with Libya, and now they already have us believing we've always hated him and we had to bomb the fuck out of the country for the sake of the ordinary people.

    Utter tosh.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the celebration and high fiving was apallingly poor behavior.

    Didn't like it either, but mainly due to the fact that the rebel leader already stating they wished to give him a trial first. This was a big question a month or so ago, that is, what to do with him once they found him. Most agreed to follow the rule of law and some even came out to say they hoped he wouldn't be killed and paraded through the streets. This is why, I'm sure. Of course, I'm not the least bit surprised about revolutionaries from a Muslim country acting like the cavemen from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Maybe he deserved to be put to death, I'm not saying he didn't; however, that's not up to me and that wasn't up to a bunch of savages dancing around his body. It was up to a court of law and not up to revolutionaries who were labeled terrorists a year ago. Funny how it's terrorism against the western world except when they work with us. It's like the Mujahadeen (sp?) all over again.

    I realize the fact that things cannot always be so cut and dried in different geopolitical climates, but a line has to be drawn. Mark my words, whatever praise NATO got for aiding this will be quickly dashed to the wind when the media links it to these cavemen carrying out an execution, WHICH IS A WAR CRIME. Am I sorry he's dead? Of course not...but it's not up to me or anyone else outside a court of law and our personal opinions don't enter into it.

    Most diplomatic (and shortest! :D) thing you've ever said on here, Chris.

    I totally agree. I wouldn't pretend to understand how the men on the ground in Libya feel, but I would have hoped those countries bombing the shit out of Libya would have tried to ensure that the interim government which they've now recognised would capture him alive and make sure a proper trial was carried out.

    It's as Eric has already said - this act of violence will beget further violence and nothing will get any better.
