31. Talkback
Peter ,   Makurdi, nigeria   (10.20.11)
If tyrants have not learnt frm Iraq, Tunisia or Egypt, Gaddafi's fall shud be an example. No leader is more important than d PEOPLE.Assad, can u hear me? Someone whisper to him
32. Gaddafi's Bank Accounts
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (10.20.11)
Hmm...I wonder if those rebels remembered to extract information from him regarding his numbered banks accounts? If he didn't, the banks are on their honour to return his stolen funds to rebuild Libya. Fat chance.
33. So endeth The Joker
Cameron ,   USA   (10.20.11)
The freaky swine certainly had a fat run of it. Classic dictator fall.....bullet in the head & being dragged down the streets. May they put the zap on his sons as fast as they can.
34. He liked being the ruler of Libya.
Michael ,   California, USA   (10.20.11)
Interesting, he did not create a bullet proof system for himself like Stalin or Mao in their countries. Historians will tell us why some day. For now, Qaddafi has a trick to perform: entrench himself in hell and start liking it.
35. Re Gaddafi
Marty ,   Toronto Canada   (10.20.11)
Does Gaddafi qualify for 72 virgins? In memory of Gaddafi I strongly suggest everybody watch the "Zenga Zenga" mix on Youtube!
36. And now Al Qa'eda has it's own country...
Motti ,   Jerusalem   (10.20.11)
... A nice, oil-rich country. Who won, really?
37. Savages killing another savage
Steven ,   California   (10.20.11)
There is no difference between those being killed and those doing the killing.
38. Killed by zionist agents
Abu Jihad, ,   Al Quds Palestine   (10.20.11)
air strike which killed him was the work of Nato acting to protect zionist entity from defiant arab leaders like the brother leader Mouamar. May Alla bess his soul
39. Assad of Syria should learn from this and nuke the Vatican
Rivkah   (10.20.11)
and Europe, particularly EU headquarters and NATO headquarters if he wants to avoid a similar fate. Pakistan, Saudia Arabia, and North Korea have nukes they would probably sell to Assad if he has none. I hope he doesn't go out like Gaddafi who had a hundred billion dollars in military armaments he did not use against the attackers who should have been stopped.
40. #24 Thank you, Bernard, for your kind words : )
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (10.20.11)
41. Many African Heads of State were lubricated by the Colonel's cash
42. @10 incorrect, not against int'l law
Joe ,   St Louis USA   (10.20.11)
It does NOT violate int'l law to target individual soldiers or commanders, which Gadaffi most def was. When Israel targets individual militant terror commanders that also is permitted under int'l law. (see the IV Geneva Convention) Anyway Gadaffi was not killed by NATO but my local rebel forces. Not that it makes any difference, but still you might want to 1. Get you facts right, and 2. Learn some actual int'l law. I mean the real kind, not the imaginary kind that you "always thought" existed.
43. Sad day for
Borislava ,   Sofia, Bulgaria   (10.20.11)
all communists, leftists, socialists and other dictators. Assad is next! But very, very difficult to associate Jalil with democratic future of Libya. We'll see a transition. Until then - moderate optimism.
44. Wonderful
Ari   (10.20.11)
Wonderful. Assad is next.
45. @38/ A'boo Z-had.
Joe ,   France   (10.20.11)
On ur way back to Gaza: now u can fly Pan-Am or U.T.A safely!
46. Guess he never heard ' The Gambler's Song'
Hannah ,   Haifa   (10.20.11)
'You gotta know when to hold'em Know when to fold'em Know when to walk away And know when to run You never count your money When youre sitting at the table There'll be time enough for counting When the dealings done. Kenny Rogers already told him-maybe Assad should listen..
47. Has Erdogan blamed the Jews?
Steve From Raleigh   (10.20.11)
Wait for it, he will. A truly dark day for the far left.
48. dum dummer dummest
coco ,   netherlands   (10.20.11)
You can mean this it is just stuppid saying that nato or zionist agents were behind this. Jesus were do you come from. Anyway people are fighting and behaving like barbarians like that will solve anything.. don't think so. You guys still life in the middle ages... and there will be no democracy because who treat other people like that don't know what it means. Israel is the only democracy in the middle east and will properly stay for a long time yet.
49. #38.....not worth a response...
Malone ,   Hfx   (10.20.11)
50. @#38 if we did it Sachten aleinu! (but u r a moron)
51. Better Representation Now
Yakov   (10.20.11)
Now that he's gone, the people in Libya not only will be able to sleep at night, they may actually have leaders that represent the fact that there are Human Beings in that land. May it come out well.
52. Troubler from an Antique Land
louisg ,   Brisbane Australia   (10.20.11)
"My name is Mouammar Qadaffi, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
53. worse is coming
Mike Cato ,   usA   (10.20.11)
We will shortly regret the death of Ghedaffi. In the arab/muslim world to line is always from very bad to terrible. We can now look forward, in Libia to an even more fanatically islamist dictatorship which will aid Israel's mortel enemies more so than the Ghedaffi regime.
54. Gaddafi: Game Over!!!!!!!!!!
Salomon Ben Tabor ,   USA Houston   (10.20.11)
