    When Nato started bombing Tripoli, unfortunately for him, former Libyan strong man Muamar Gaddafi did not foresee his fall from the grace. He started campaigning on TV for Libyans to come out and defend their beloved Tripoli. Zanga zanga or make sure you surround the rats in all corners and club them was what he said.
    Essentially, Gaddafi who seemed delusional proved to have, for generations, lived out of touch so as not to know how unpopular his regime was. He seemed to labour under false information praising him tht he was the darling of Libyans whilst he actually the opposite. This time around Gaddafi goofed. He could not fool Libyans the same way he did for decades. His last hour was closing in. Had Gaddafi known, he wouldn't have vowed to thwart opposition just like rats. If anything, this gave Nato the reason it wanted to justify its move towards Libyan. It is unfortunate that Gaddafi, just like many dictators, did not learn from the fate and fall of Saddam Hussein the same way Syrian brigand hasn't gotten it. Now it is a year down the line. Gaddafi is no more though the lesson for other venal dictators is still clear. Again, will they learn? Hegel answered this question saying that what we learn from history is that men have never learned anything from it.

    For most Africans who use to think by their heads and not otherwise He was not a Dictotor, he nanaged to use only one natural resource that they have for the benefit of Libyans,look at the number of resources that we have and compare our life standard with that of Libyans bythen. Give him his prays that he deserves.

    Gadhafi did a lot of good things to his fellow country men. Nevertheless he had no right to be a life president or to groom his son to take over.
    At any rate Gadhafi was in no position whatsoever to relinguish power democraticaly to any other Libyan.
    Sometimes back while he was on a state vist to Uganda he was mocking his friend Museveni why he was calling for elections instead of just clinging in power without elections.
    After ruling his country for quit along time there was no other altenative but to go.

    Nimeanua matanga leo ya kuondokewa Kiongozi shupavu wa Kiafrika mwaka mmoja uliopita. Ndiyo maana avatar yangu ya niliyokuwa naitumia kabla ya kifo cha Comred M. Ghaddaf nimeirudisha. Sasa tugange ajayo.

    I do not know What kind of democracy are you talking about as you have not given us any reference country with decent democracy.

    What I see now days almost whole over the world in countries which presumably you may regard them democratic is just DEMOCRY !!! People are crying for fair, right,and the like.

    On contrary , for countries which to some people may call Dictatorial state what I see is a Decency.

    Unaionaje Libya mpya baada ya mabomu ya NATO?

    Wamepata domo-krasi au demo-krasi?

    Hela(sehemu ya pato la mafuta) ambazo "dikteta " alikuwa anahakikisha kila mlibya anazipata katika akaunti ya benki kila mwezi wanaendelea kuzipata? Au wamepata sera mpya ya kila mtu atabeba msalaba wake?

    Najiuliza kama kutafanyika "poll" ya kuwauliza walibya kuwa wanataka Gaddafi arudi au wanataka Libya mpya watajibu nini leo.
