    Well, his fate was sealed the day he decided not to leave Libya. Now what ?
    I just hope that the bloodshed ends and there is some semblance of stability so that the world can get a sense of libya after Ghaddafi.

    Whatever one's feelings for Gadhafi as a man and a political leader, I think it was totally unacceptable for a show like Piers Morgan's to air that Youtube video of Ghadafi being slaughtered. CNN's standards of journalism ought to be better than this. We all want to hear what the 'experts' have to say, but do we have to listen to their comments against such a brutal and distasteful backdrop?
