Muammar Gaddafi Killed

Seems my blog is just all about death. I’ve not intended it that way! Not good, but that’s all that’s been happening out there. Muammar Gaddafi was reported captured and later killed earlier on today. I don’t like people getting killed regardless of what they have done, so I wanted to see him captured and brought to the International Criminal Courts at The Hague to be tried for his war crimes. This man was deluded and in my opinion sick mentally (its said he was bipolar).

However in terms of changing Libya, I don’t think it will make that big a difference. Democracy has to be formed. The country has no history of democracy. Weapons have to be called in and accounted for. A insurgency could still form. This is just one step. Bringing his government down was one MAJOR step this is a MINOR step in my opinion. The country will progress however. Of course after 42 years of brutal dictatorship the Libyan people deserve to celebrate this moment… but its not over. This is merely the beginning.

I feel I have more to write on this. If I think of something I will come back to it. It’s late! Red-eye!
