    I'm not sure what difference it really makes. US drones and French fighters bombed his convoy, leading to his capture and subsequent death.

    Actually, a NATO fighter and drone attacked the convoy carrying him, whether he was alive or not.

    If you think a bunch of shepherds with slingshots took this guy down, you're naive.

    It will most likely go the way of Iran, though it's more comforting to be optimistic...

    Many were supportive of the Shah being overthrown but look what we have there now. There is no reason to suppose that the same result won't hold true throughout the Middle East, with Iran eventually being the dominant force in the area.

    Gadaffi may have been crazy but he wasn't stupid. He realized Muslims would eventually gain absolute control over the Middle East and Europe and there is general acceptance of that idea throughout the Islamic world.

    They're not bashful about telling you that's the plan, are they?

    Islamists are not liars, they will tell you what they plan to do to you.

    You merely need to take them at their word.

    BBC News - Libya's Col Muammar Gaddafi killed, says NTC

    What goes around comes around my friend.
    Wasn't Saddam also found hiding in a hole?

    I am surprised he didn't try to get the hell out. I know, he didn't have many places to go... but looking back at everything, he was dead man when he decided to wage war and made that crazy speech starring at the sky. We all saw it coming except for him. Did he honestly think he was going to stay there and fight until the war turned in his favor? WTF. He had no chance, his own family left him there. His family and the whole bunch are sick for defending him while living safely on foreign soil as well.

    I do take them at their word, and there is no reason not to believe them. There is also a substantial Fifth Column in a seriously weakened Europe.

    I'm not as optimistic as some others.

    It's true this wouldn't have happened without his support. If the rebels had no support, the only history being made in Libya today would be very tragic.
