Excellent. I rather liked the fact that he was found cowering like a rat in an actual drainpipe.

Was not the purpose of Nato getting involved to ensure that Gadaffi received a fair trial?

NATO got involved for the usual reasons OIL.
Gadaffi was given many opportunities to recieve a fair trial but chose not to.

Dear god can you imagine the problems that might have caused? Far cheaper and easier this way.

Surely not? I simply can't imagine how you came up with that idea.

You people really have learned nothing from Iraq have you

Come on then let's hear where would you like to invade next? As the middle east warzone spreads, the chances somebody you each know & love will become a casualty, then we'll see how much you support America's quest for world domination!

Fair trial for what? You've already admitted the reason for war was oil. France & Italy had oil deals in place with the rebels three months before hostilities even began.

A 'fair trial' would have been too embarassing for all concerned. There is no way he could have been allowed to survive.
ciao for now,

Question being now of course is this present rag tag army of inexperienced folk can keep a nation of tribes together.
The future will tell if the demise of Gadaffi was in the best interests of Libya or not. Some very uncertain times ahead.

Agree, I've said before, there are always far too many people willing to volunteer somebody else kids to go to war and be killed. If there was a chance they had to go, could be a different story. We are nowhere near big enough nor powerful enough to police the world, we're already punching well above our weight, whilst we are constantly in the front line, losing troops by the dozen, most of the EU troops are cowering somewhere in the background, tucked up in some holiday camp.

It seems that your Human Rights pals are not very happy about the way he died and are demanding an investigation.

Just wondering which side of the fence you're on regarding this heinous crime,bil.
