Qaddafi is dead


Whatever you think of the military intervention in Libya, whether you think it's illegal or not, whether you think the U.S. should be involved or not, and whatever you think of the rebels who will now determine that country's future, the world is a better place without Qaddafi.

A brutal dictator, a thug, an oppressor, a mass murderer is dead.

I don't say these things lightly.

Death, any death, should not be cause for celebration. Whether it's the death of Saddam, or Osama, or Qaddafi.

But while there is be a fine line between justice and vengeance, sometimes, on rare occasions, it seems appropriate to say good riddance.

Said Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril: "It's time to start a new Libya, a united Libya. One people, one future."

Let's hope so.

  • Well, I'll say this, Qaddafi died by his own sword. Isn't that the way it always goes?
