Reports are starting to appear that President Gaddafi has been captured and died of his wounds!

Hmmmm just seen this on the news last I heard he was shot in both legs - presumably to stop him running away!

From the pictures I have seen I think that that is a euphemism (s?) for 'Beaten to death' .

Perhaps he was RESISTING ARREST!

After 42 years of his dictatorship, I would think it unlikely that the guys that found him were bothered about putting him on trial.

They are simple folk and retribution will have been metered out!

Saves us the cost of a trial at The Hague. Two trials in fact, as his son (also dead) was similarly indicted.

Several people I spoke to this morning comdemned the treatment. They seemed unable to understand what this dictator put his people through over the years!

Not really surprising that it was a relatively quick ending and that he was buried in an unmarked grave!

Actually there is a theory that as many of the recent war criminals are being caught and prosecuted, TONY BLIAR will soon be arrested and tried in the Hague! :ymapplause:

The photo of Brown and Gaddafi was taken at the G8 Summit in 2009, so Brown wasn't alone; don't forget Obama, Sarkozy, Berlusconi and the rest of the most prominent leaders of the World. It's called politics. Get the contracts for building and managing capital projects for one's own country. Sell them arms and extract the oil - jobs for Brits, Yanks, French and money flowing into the economy. It's what politicians do and have done with dictators since time began if there was something in it for them or their country. You don't really think Nato cares about the people of Libya - of course not, they want contracts for rebuilding the country and the oil.
