Muammar Gaddafi: he died fighting, as per his promise

Muammar Gaddafi killed - rebels drag the body
May he rest in peace, Muammar Gaddafi 1942-2011.
The man fought against all the odds and died fighting after air and ground attacks.
Gaddafi stayed true to his words, that he would stay in Libya till the bitter end.
Rarely does a politician keeps his promises in such a dramatic way.

"There is a conspiracy to control Libyan oil and to control Libyan land, to colonise Libya once again. This is impossible, impossible. We will fight until the last man and last woman to defend Libya from east to west, north to south." 

and in his last will:

"Let the free people of the world know that we could have bargained over and sold out our cause in return for a personal secure and stable life. We received many offers to this effect but we chose to be at the vanguard of the confrontation as a badge of duty and honour.
Even if we do not win immediately, we will give a lesson to future generations that choosing to protect the nation is an honour and selling it out is the greatest betrayal that history will remember forever despite the attempts of the others to tell you otherwise."

After Iraq, Egypt and Tunisia, another Arab nation is ready for "Democracy".
We already have seen what "democracy" has brought to Iraq, and Egypt, and it seems that less blood flowed and more tolerance existed under Saddam and Mubarak. The only positive secondary effects will be some degree of freedom for Kurds and Berbers, but even those will be lost in a return to medieval Islamic intolerance.

Intelligence and real-politik are gone from our Washington lead foreign policy. As if the self defeating wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not enough, the West will live to regret supporting these revolutions.

For how long will beautiful Damascus keep a Christian quarter?
Good luck Bashar!
