1. RIP Colonel Qaddafi, King of Kings of Africa
elhrac ,   USA   (10.20.11)
The Green resistance will continue until the imperialists and islamist rats are kicked out of Libya, with or without Colonel Qaddafi.
2. Israeli Occupation is Next
Nour ,   One State   (10.20.11)

4. I'll bet he's sorry now, that he gave up the nuke program.
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (10.20.11)
It would have been a nice deterrence against this type of thing.
5. Gaddafi dead?
Spencer ,   Israel   (10.20.11)
If he's dead, the world is a better place. Hopefully there are a few other leaders in the Islamic world who will go the same way.

9. Dissapointing Leader
Samuel ,   Israel   (10.20.11)
Gaddafi has always been a pain in the a_s to its own people & to the rest of the world.Good riddance to bad rubbish.
10. Terrible...just terrible....
cj ,   paris france   (10.20.11)
How dare NATO go on targeting people ? I always thought it was against international law to kill that way. Does it only apply to israelis the interdiction of targeting killing. How many innocents as NATO killed today ? I guess NATO leaders will tell us they were all Kaddafi supporters, that not one person killed or injured was a innocent by-stander. the Israeli prime minister should ask for an enquiry it is the murder of a political leader and demand a UN security council meeting to denounce the atrocity commited by NATO. NATO and the European leaders are a bunch of hypocrites.
11. Big Question Motivation
Joe Tango ,   USA   (10.20.11)
Does it seem a little odd that President Obama never once mentioned as a reason to attacking Libya that the reason we were doing it was a retaliation for the 1988 Pan Am bombing that killed 188 Americans. Muammar Gaddafi was not killed because he was a terrorist in my opinion but because he stood in the way of the radical forces that Pres. Obama and the Europeans want in power.
12. OH no!
John ,   Boise, Idaho USA   (10.20.11)
Time to pass out the sweets..and I just ran out!!!
13. 30 years to the day
patrick a . hammel ,   zermatt,switzerland   (10.20.11)
Remembering the bombing on Simhat Torah on october 20,1981. 30 years ago today in antwerp,belgium. Some even speculated that Khaddafi had sponsored the attack at the time.I guess the one who could tell is the one who organized it and is held since a few months in Canada: when is Belgium going to ask for his extradition and put him on trial? After Ben Ali,Moebarak and Khaddafi it is now time to get rid of Assad and Ahmadinejad as well as the leaders of North Korea,Cuba,White-Russia and Burma before the end of the year so that we can all enjoy a safer 2012 and beyond...
14. Thanks to the Western intervention -
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (10.20.11)
Libya will gp to war against Egypt - Dan.11. 42He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and ofsilver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. (The King of he North - The Shia-Islamc Al-Mahdi of IRAK) - and against EU/The Merchants of Tarsis - Ezekiel 38. 5Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them, all of them with shield and helmet; The West are Totaly Blind. God bevere from the West. Arn.Sweden.
15. #11 Obama wasnt attacking Libya, this was NATO fumed by uk&
Michael Roth   (10.20.11)
france. USA joined in from time to time. Trust the Americans to take credit. That said, if France and UK can get Gadaffi in a few months, it took USA over 10 years to get Bin Laden..
16. British and French victory here killing Gadaffi, under guise
Fay Dunaway ,   USA   (10.20.11)

18. No. 2
sherly ,   south africa   (10.20.11)
19. Gaddafi's body taken to undeclared place
observer ,   Egypt   (10.20.11)
Jewish Gaddafi's mother converted to Islam at the age of 9. Where to? to Mount Hertzel of Leaders' or to Mount Zion of kings' tombs.
20. Libyan Rebels drag a half naked bloody body....
Essie HaKohane ,   Florida, USA   (10.20.11)
The arab rebels will be just as uncivilised as their former leader. The participants of this so called "arab spring" are just as violent, hateful and murderous as those who they toppled. The last two days showed how killing and violence are their top two objectives. Democracy and due process is not even in their psychie. They are incapable of understanding it. It is sad how the world does not see how Israel is the only civilised island in this sea of neanderthal madness.( no offense to the neanderthals).
21. TOO BAD....Isarel's man GONE...
harvey G ,   villanova -USA   (10.20.11)
Israel helped put this guy form the get go...and even put him in POWER... His aunt lives in Israel...Saif is Probably there already...
22. Rot in hell Qaddafi. Not what? More Muslim Islamists?
23. Sometimes it takes a long time to kill a rat. Good wishes
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (10.20.11)
to the people of Libya for a free society.
24. fitting end for all demaguogues; however,...
bernard ross ,   st anns bay, jamaica   (10.20.11) does not matter who rules muslim lands because they all teach their children to hate jews, This is why there will be no real peace for the Jews with the muslims. One can only hope that the arab spring flourishes and brings chaos to the lands of the enemies of the Jews for a long time.
25. Gaddaffi
Natan ,   USA   (10.20.11)
Oh well, another Arab leader that did not make it to retirement.
26. Tyrants end up DEAD
Brod ,   USA   (10.20.11)
Forty years of reigning terror to his countrymen and the world, tyrant Gaddafi ends up dead in the hands of his countrymen who are sick and tired of his oppression and tyranny. Tyrants out there in the Islamist-Jihadist world, it does not pay to be a tryant, sponsoring terrorism around the world, oppressing your own people and stealing the wealth of your country.
27. And now Bashar Al Assad!
Robert Renders ,   belgium   (10.20.11)
28. Bad news for Israel
Daniel ,   Tel Aviv   (10.20.11)
the removeal of arab leasders whose only goal was to stay in power and hence not to pick a fight with israel while paying lip service to the palestinian cause, is bad news for israel the new regimes in the arab world are likely to be islamist who will be the sunni equivalent of Iran but closer to Israel's borders and more than one of them; in such a scenario, war is inevitable! this whole arab revolts just show how stupid pur leaders were in feeling complacent and not trying to achieve peace with the likes of Abbas. We have capirulated to Hamas, the new p[ro-islamist military coucil in egypt (when the ambassador was almost lyched) and will have soon to do the same for the new regimes in JOrdan and syria.
29. concerned
jewishheart ,   israel   (10.20.11)
I'm concerned that Ghadaffi is out and al qaida is now in at Libya. Welcome to the Arab Spring turned into the Islamic winter.
30. What a blow...
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (10.20.11)
to the world of fashion. Of all the tyrants he was the most entertaining.
