(from a recent discussion)
"Hopefully he will end up like Bin Laden, as food for the less particular fishes, or at the end of a long drop on a short rope, like Saddam..."
Or maybe he should be given the mic first, to tell the story about who those rebels are, who is behind them, what are they really fighting for, and how he suddenly became public enemy #1 just a few days after he was Our Best Buddy(tm) in the Maghreb.
Maybe he could tell the story about the trade with the West - oil in return for weapons and diplomatic legitimacy; or about the oil drilling contracts he had signed with various international oil companies (sorry, no US contractors though; bad, bad Gaddafi let's bomb him); and about the commission he was paying those companies, and the substantially large share that he was using to boost his people's living standard (how dare he); and how he then decided that he could pay those drillers even a smaller share, since a certain oil company set the precedent by agreeing on working for less. And how this triggered a chain of events that eventually led to his demise. And that same company is now cynically riding the rebels, wow. Business is such a beautiful game!
...Or we could just hand him over to the Freedom Fighters(tm), who'll quickly hang him in an obscure basement in the middle of the night, burn his body, and bury his story before he has told it. After all, he had enough chance to make his case, no? And besides, who would believe a blood-thirsty dictator? He looks so evil, doesn't he? I mean just look at him:
How could you not hate him?
