How did he die? Who cares? IMO the "Gs" killed him after they got through kicking him around. They are not soldiers. They are undisciplined civilian enthusiasts with a smidgin of training. If MQ had died in an ambush or as the "Gs" shot their way into his hideout a lot of you would think nothing of it.
The Washington/New York foreign policy clique is now wringing its hands over the fate of Libya. "They might not be ready fpr DEMOCRACY. Oh my! The US should establish a another Coalition Provisional Administration." Yes, sure, the last one (Iraq) was such a success that the Iraqi government that we fostered has now thrown us out.
Americans can't seem to get it into our thick skulls that other people do not necessarily want to be like us and that this does not mean that they are retarded (oops - mentally special).
LEAVE THE LIBYANS ALONE!. Let them work out their problems. They are not children. If they want one country or three that is THEIR BUSINESS, not ours. The think tank crowd can't leave people alone. What would they do for a living if they did? What would their next book or TV appearance be about? pl
