Libya is now, hopefully, free to make a fresh start but is this truly possible?
The way Gaddafi died is currently fictitous. I say that as there have been reports stating that his convoy was bombed and he was injured. This is claimed to have led to him hiding out in a large pipe. Here he was discovered and reportedly shot in the head. Yet other stories would have you believe he was captured and died from his injuries.
Amnesty International has now called for an investigation into how Gaddafi died. Whilst few will grieve for this dictator, an inquiry seems a sensible suggestion. After all if we choose our behaviour depending on how we feel about a person anarchy and or chaos will ensue. Amnesty want an independent inquiry but the truth will be hard to ascertain. Personal perspectives will make for varying "truths"
Early footage showed Gaddafi injured but captured. This footage was also said to show him being manhandled by his captors. Later footage has conveniently excluded this footage, rather concentrating on demonising him further. As the dictator that he was, none of this should be needed.
It has been predicted that NATO forces can now leave Libya but will they do so.
The NTC is still a fragile government with no true mandhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvOqSDFGD40ate to rule. Countries in the West will seek oil and Libyan wealth and so have a vested interest in the country. The West has chosen to support many tin-pot dictators when it suits it, as long as their is enough of a reward to do so. So once again I ask "Can Libya and its people make a fresh start?"
