Re: Gaddafi The Former Libyan Leader is DEAD!!!

The great mystery is where is Saif Al Islam Gadaffi?



I personally hope he's still alive and has his day in court because he knows where all the skeletons are buried.

Yep, having them dead doesn't bring them anything beside a very short moment of revenge.

Re: Gaddafi The Former Libyan Leader is DEAD!!!

Very bad what the imperialistic western governments did in Libya. The propaganda that got spewed from the media was even more shameful.

Wow! How nice! All of that as long as you shut your mouth.
Isn't is same in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Singapore, China? Why was no help given by the west to the genuine revolt in Bahrain? Do you use Chinese made products? There is no freedom of speech there either. What made Libya so special for west to fly 10,000 bombings raids?

Gaddafi was a snake but the US and it's dogs are much bigger snakes.

Re: Gaddafi The Former Libyan Leader is DEAD!!!

Just read that the Libyan dictator managed to set aside more than $ 200 billion during his stint as the boss. Just to put this into proportion, this would have made him the richest guy in the world by far, the next down is a Mexican dude with a mere $ 135B.

By all accounts, that's almost as bad as being a rep whore on EF!

Honestly: He was in charge for 42 years - so that's just 5 Billion a year (calculating without any interest) and Lybia is the richest country in Africa... and the USD is on a record low.

Gadaffi said he withdrew all his money from Swiss banks after his son was accused of beating up some servants in Geneva.

Keep up at the back of the class there please.

I assume sitting with his family in a large villa near an army barracks in Pakistan?

Oh yes - of course - silly me
After watching Panorama last night, I now realise it's all in the UK.

And Moussa Koussa - intelligence chief and Gaddafi's (former) right-hand man - is too...
Oh no - hold on - he is now living in protected luxury (on his unfrozen assets) in Qatar.....hmmm.

Re: Gaddafi The Former Libyan Leader is DEAD!!!

Secret burials:

The bodies of ex-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, his son Muatassim and a top aide have been buried in secret in the desert, Libyan officials say.

Re: Gaddafi The Former Libyan Leader is DEAD!!!

This makes no sense at all, are the NTC claiming that Gadaffi was not a Muslim?
Quote:
Libya's Minister for Information Mahmoud Shammam said the NTC was following a fatwa, or religious ruling, that stated the body should not be buried in a Muslim cemetery.
"I can't say exactly what the fatwa's content is, but it says that his body should not be buried in Muslim cemeteries and should not be buried in known place to avoid any sedition," he said.

Well technically it is claimed he was Jewish; his mother's mother was Jewish. In the Jewish religion & law you are Jewish based on your mothers ancestral line not your fathers; comes back to "it is a clever person who knows who their father is!?"

Of course those laws were passed long long before DNA typing.
