Does it really matter? The guy had blood on his hands. Lockerbie, WPC Yvonne Fletcher for example. He had it coming to him frankly. If one follows the path of violence then it is inevitable that that person will get his/her uppercommence in the end. One only has to look at Hitler to see that. Stalin was probably bumped off in the end and well Romania executed their tyrants and did not mess about.
If you are going to be the leader of a country then you must treat your people well, with respect and dignity and listen to their demands fairly. I know not everything can be agreed on obviously. Sometimes one has to say no to a particular demand. But if one is fair and shows that they are genuinely concerned and not hold their own people to ransom with a gun then things will usually be fine.
As far as I am concerned he and those who choose to be tyrants and murderers got what they deserve. Why weep over HOW he died. At least he did not get a messy hanging like Saddam did, whose head was torn off in the process. Thats no way for anyone to die. A quick kill like what Gaddafi got is fair and just. Although solitary confiment in prison without ever being released is also a fitting punishment too.
What happened to the sons that were caught though? We dont hear much about them do we? Have they been quietly executed or are they languashing in prison cells being tourtured?
