    Sinn Fein saddened by death of their old friend Muammar Gaddafi. Senior Sinn Fein members have said that Gaddafi was a good friend to their campaign these past 40 years and that they will send a senior party member to Gaddafi’s funeral or memorial service when the time is announced.
    Muammar Gaddafi has been killed, Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said today.

    “We have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Muammar Gaddafi has been killed,” Mr Jibril told a news conference in the capital Tripoli.

    Gaddafi, who ruled Libya with a dictatorial grip for 42 years until he was ousted by rebels in a bloody civil war, was killed when revolutionary forces overwhelmed his home town, Sirte.

    It was the last major bastion of resistance two months after the regime fell.

    Initial reports from fighters said Gaddafi had been holed up with the last of his fighters in the furious battle with revolutionary fighters assaulting the last few buildings they held.

    At one point, a convoy tried to flee the area and was blasted by Nato airstrikes, though it was not clear if Gaddafi was in the vehicle.

    Al-Jazeera TV showed footage of a man resembling the 69-year-old Gaddafi lying dead or severely wounded, bleeding from the head and stripped to the waist as fighters rolled him over on the pavement. Witnesses said his body was put on display in the nearby city of Misrata.

    Celebratory gunfire and cries of “Allahu Akbar” rang out across the capital Tripoli as the reports spread.

    Cars honked their horns and people hugged each other. In Sirte, the ecstatic former rebels celebrated the city’s fall after weeks of bloody siege by firing endless rounds into the sky, pumping their guns, knives and even a meat cleaver in the air and singing the national anthem.

      The Sinn Fein is the governmental representatives of the IRA, so it is no surprize that they would be in bed with a corrupt political cut-throat like Gadaffi.

      It would have been better if Gadaffi had lived and been brought to trial so all could see. This way all could be certain it was truly him.
      Killed or supposedly killed we can never be certain it was not maybe some imposter or a hoaks to help him to escape into exile somewhere. He should be made to pay for his crimes.

    I was just sitting here thinking how sad it was to be happy that someone was dead- the conflicting emotions are difficult to handle. I know we should think of the big picture and what his regime did but the bottom line to me is, should I rejoice that some one is dead? It's a rather difficult decision.

    Murder in America is a celebratory event.

      I'm sorry that that is the case among the Americans you know.  It is not the case among the Americans that I know or live with, even those who live in California.

    There are no trials because there is no guilt, or what guilt there is - is not what people have conditioned to believe. Secret evidence means there is no evidence.
