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.

The Guardian's obit was on standby!

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.

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!

I wonder if they'll have another sham hanging, like Suddam.

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

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.

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...

Update from Libya:  Nobody knows what's going on.

I gave up after checking out six newspapers, all of which are pretty much saying, well, shit's going down, and something something, and... Oil fields! And stuff.
