Oh what a shame

Muammar Gaddafi has been killed in Libya.

Ousted despot Muammar Gaddafi was killed overnight in a final assault by new regime forces on his hometown Sirte, ending the last vestiges of his 42-year autocratic rule and sparking joy across Libya.

“We announce to the world that Gaddafi has died in the custody of the revolution,” National Transitional Council (NTC) spokesman Abdel Hafez Ghoga said in the eastern city of Benghazi.

“It is an historic moment. It is the end of tyranny and dictatorship. Gaddafi has met his fate,” he added.

He said the toppled dictator’s death had been “confirmed by our commanders on the ground in Sirte, those who captured him after he had been wounded in the battle for Sirte.”

In Tripoli, interim premier Mahmud Jibril told reporters that NTC leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil was to declare by Friday that the country has been liberated and also give details on Gaddafi’s killing.

    The reports are that he was killed in custody, which would be a war crime anywhere else.

    However, at least he had the balls to stand and fight his opponents.

    Unlike Saddam Hussein who cowered in a hole in the ground.

    Unlike Osama bin Laden who left others to take the hits while he reclined in relative luxury in Pakistan.
