To be honest I don't think there will be too many tears shed around the world about that. What I want to know is how can they be sure that they've got the right man.
I mean, he has morphed before our eyes from this:
|Young Charlie Sheen|
Ok that last one may not be strictly true but you never know...
So goodbye Gaddafi and here's to a more peaceful era for Libya.
And sincere apologies to Charlie Sheen, who may have done some unsavory deeds in his time but at least he was never a crushing dictator who killed countless innocents for his own political and financial gain.
I'll leave you with the words of the big O (that's Obama to you):
'Innocent civilians were detained, beaten and killed. The country's wealth was squandered and terror used as a political weapon. But one of the world's longest surving dictators is no more. A year ago the notion of a free Libya seemed impossible.'
Disclosure: The use of Charlie Sheen in this post was purely for gratuitous seo related reasons. I do not believe that Colonel Gaddafi at any point morphed into Mr. Charlie Sheen.
