Images of his dead and bloody body have been on mainstream TV news. There have been reports that some have shot into his already dead body and that it has been dragged through the streets. Footage has been shown.
The liberal in me balks at this news but can understand the actions. If Hitler had been caught he would have no doubt have suffered a worse fate. However one always hopes that the victors prove themselves better than such former dictators.
Further cause for concern is that NATO troops were involved in what was to be Gaddafi's Waterloo. NATO only had a mandate to protect civilians not be involved in combative measures. If and wheni t is confirmed that Gaddafi is dead, the Libyan people will need to look to a new era. Gang rule and another dictator could so easily replace the old regime.
