Now...I will start out by saying unequivocally that Gaddafi was a monster. I have zero problem with him being dead. I have zero problems with the particular way that he met his end. I would have been not un-happy if his death had been even more painful and grotesque than it apparently was.
Gaddafi's life was punctuated frequently with atrocities. To say that he was a murderer, a mass murderer, would be to say that Rembrandt was a painter. It does not begin to describe the depths of this creature's depravity.
So, now that that is out of the way, I would like to point out a few things.
Gaddafi was killed by a murderous muslim mob. They tortured him, mocked him and killed him. Okay so far. But remember all of the muslim bitching and wailing that Osama Bin Laden (another monster) was not treated with proper respect after he, too, achieved room temperature? This article
chronicles the last moments of Gaddafi's life and his body's treatment after death... (warning: lots of pictures and videos so don't click on it if you can't bear seeing mutilated corpses)
His body is currently on show in a meat locker next to his dead son Mutassim. However, rebels have pointed away part of his skull in an apparent attempt to hide a bullet hole.
Bullet wounds can be seen to his chest and the top of his left arm. A witness who was able to get close to the body said she could see gunpowder residue around the wounds - which is often consistent with being shot at close range. Visitors to the [meat]locker are now being given masks to wear because of the smell of rotting flesh.
I don't see any distress about Gaddafi's body not being buried within 24 hours which is supposed to be some kind of sacrosanct muslim thing. I don't see anyone getting all bent out of shape that Gaddafi was killed in a way that did not conflict with the koran or something.
Remember the outrage that ensued after Sadam Hussein was executed after he was found guilty by a jury of his peers for mass murder, crimes against humanity, etc.? There was no end to the hand wringing and bitching about it by liberals in our country.
And yet instead of a similar outcry with Gaddafi we are told that everyone at the White House including old buffalo thighs herself, the SecState, were doing high fives and end zone dances. Sure doesn't seem that long ago that we were treated to this:
Caption contest, anyone? Maybe something like: "Hey, I'm not like that George Bush guy. I can shake hands with terrorists and then claim ownership of killing them." Or, "I'm a Democrat and I'm gonna kill your ass and get away with it because I need to pick up some more votes with independents...so, ha-ha, enjoy the hor d'ouevres and sh*t because I've got a Predator drone pointed at your ass."
Because that's apparently what libs can do. They can shake hands with our enemies. Then kill them. And then celebrate the killing.
Again, I'm totally okay that he's dead but the hypocrisy that is woven into this little affair is striking. Where is the outrage? Where is the hand wringing?
Ah, well... adult hippies... what are you gonna do with them?
BTW, when is that golden .45 auto gonna show up on an internet auction site?
