    So, it's been confirmed, Gaddafi was killed by Rebels today.
    Videos and photos have been released of his body by the Rebels, who found him hiding in a concrete drain whilst trying to flee from them.
    As they dragged him out, he apparently said "What did I ever do to you? Have mercy, have mercy."
    They then shot him in the head.

    The story can be found here. -Contains graphic pictures-

    I saw this on Al Jazeera earlier today.

    Good riddance, I suppose. Rebels aren't particularly fond of trials, are they?

    The way I looked at it is, the people took the revolution into their own hands to begin with. He shat on them for years. The people sorted it out in the end.
    One of the rebels said something along the lines of; "He stripped his own people of their rights for years, why does he deserve his?"

    Nephilim Give me love.

    It was expected and I understand their fury at his actions all these years. I'm just not sure how to feel about them carrying his body around in the manner they did. It makes me feel ill, in honesty.

    But hopefully this is a positive step forward in rebulding their country.
