“Today, the government of Libya announced the death of Muammar Qaddafi. This marks the end of a long and painful chapter for the people of Libya, who now have the opportunity to determine their own destiny in a new and democratic Libya.  [...]
This comes at a time when we see the strength of American leadership across the world. We’ve taken out al Qaeda leaders, and we’ve put them on the path to defeat. We’re winding down the war in Iraq and have begun a transition in Afghanistan. And now, working in Libya with friends and allies, we’ve demonstrated what collective action can achieve in the 21st century.”

The Real Reason for NATO Attacking Libya EXPOSED

Gaddafi's bloody pictures

I can't help but find it so "odd" that we are not "capable" of seeing Bin Laden's dead body pictures because it may cause us unrest, but Gaddafi's bloody pictures are front page in the papers all over the planet, the video of its demise literally blanketing the Internet.... Why are there different measures for these two events?

Killing of Gaddafi and NATO's Money-Driven Wars of Conquest

After nearly a two month manhunt, former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was found and killed. Revolutionary forces flooded his hometown, Sirte, and according to some reports, the US fired a drone missile at his convoy causing his death.

Michel Chossudovsky, director for the Centre for Research on Globalization, tells us more about today's events.

This assassination is not only cowardly,

but it is also against the law:


Do these laws matter anymore?

Pseudologia fantastica

No problem showing Gaddafi snuff films over and over on network news, but remember, a picture of bin Laden's corpse? = Too Gruesome.
