    Let-wingers are always saying bad stuff about dictators like Pinochet, but at least Pinochet had the balls to call on a referendum and respect the results by stepping down. Castro was never even brave enough to propose such thing.

    Gaddafi had the option to step down. This option would have certainly spared lots of Libyan blood, but that he did not. If he really care about his people, he could have stepped down and avoid a civil war. He could have spared the lives of thousands of Libyans, both supporting and opposing his regime. He could have accepted the amnesty and continued politically on the background until he could prove through a referendum that the people were really supporting him as he claimed. Instead, he chose to put his people through a civil war, just so he could hang on to power.

    Because Pinochet stepped down, his supporters are still strong in Chile. After all, the parties that supported him and their successors are currently in power.

    Castro was right. It was brutal. We let a mob become judge, jury and executor (with a knife up the rectum).
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
