Being fairly elected does not keep some (like Mugabe) from becoming dictators after a while, and there were some examples of that with Allende at the helm.

Interesting to see how the endgame in Syria unfolds next...

LOL! Mugabe! The guerrilla leader elected by the people he freed. I guess that's okay. Then graft and horror ever since.

Read Mukiwa for a great view on the end of Rhodesia... And any of a number of other books. Fascinating history, really. But Mugabe's election isn't quite as above board as he would like folks to believe. Well...it is, I guess, comparatively speaking.

Me thinks "an above board election" for a major political position is as common anywhere in the world as bikinis in Greenland.

I wonder if they'll have another sham hanging, like Suddam.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

It's on TV. It has to be true.

There we go... The transition leader just confirmed. Died at the hospital from leg wounds. The body is in a secret location. Also captured/killed: Everybody else.

So passes Denethor...

According to the captors, he was caught without any wounds but was shot in the head while trying to slip away...just glad the SOB is a goner!

The Guardian's obit was on standby!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/oct/20/colonel-muammar-gaddafi

Went up as soon as the Libyan PM confirmed everything.

I love these Obit guys, putting all this stuff together weeks, months, years in advance in some dark, death-obsessed corner of the office.

So... Anyone saying what happened to his girl power guards? I hope they tour the world.

Oh...well...okay. Most of them were incinerated in a French air raid shortly after he died. Others, who surrendered days ago, claim they were sex slaves.
