    Default Gaddafi regime in Libya hammered by rebels

    Gaddafi, Kadafi, Qaddafi,..... bah!!! However way you want to spell the man's name, this guy is finally getting what's been coming to him for a long time.

    The man who has held absolute power for over 40 years in Libya,.... who was once touted as "the most dangerous man in the world" in a Newsweek magazine coverstory,..... it finally appears that his days as a dictator are over.

    Developments are streaming in, even as I speak. Rebels are converging on Tripoli. Gaddafi's compound is being surrounded. His son has been captured.

    A happy day, not just for the long suffering Libyan people but for America as well. As we remember Gaddadi had a bomb detonated in a nightclub that had many Americans in it and had an airliner filled with civiliains bombed out of the sky. As Ronald Reagan once said that "the Libyan people are ashamed and disgusted" of Gaddafi, and as it looks now they won't have to be that much longer.

    They found a son's handwritten signature, spelled Kathaffi, or close..., never known by Westerners until now.

    This whole matter is clouded in mystery. The issues involved need to be carefully investigated by whoever cares to do so. Where is the fleeing oligarch? Maybe selling hotdogs in Times Square ().
    Who sold weapons to the regime in the first place. This whole Libyan thing is really spooky.

    In a related story, Hugo Chavez is repatriating over 200 tons of gold - seems he doesn't think it's safe in foreign hands anymore, just as an international ruling against him (okay, Venezuela) concerning compensation for nationalizing numerous businesses is soon to be announced amounting to ... you guessed it ... a bit over 200 tons of gold in value.

    Crazy dictators with crazy amounts of gold, gotta love 'em!

    May I always be found beneath your contempt.

    Very interesting ! The transfer of large amounts of Gold bullion is the stuff that fueled the imagination of Ian Fleming. (Goldfinger). The island of Martinique in the Carribean was used as a stash point for the Gold reserves of France and it is still not clear where all that bullion went to. On a related note see the Sterling Seagrave book "Gold Warrors". Another vast transfer of Gold was the transfer of the British Gold reserve to a bunker in Montreal during ww2.

    Reports this morning that Gadhafi has been killed. Not totally confirmed yet, but seems very strong.

    It brings up the whole question of tyrants. Why do some rulers become so brutal? Brutal enough to enrage their people? Hitler could have continued building autobahns and German industry, he didn't need to kill anybody, he didn't need to have a war, he could have been reelected for life and gone out as one of the most beloved people not just in German history, but in human history. Same for Stalin. Even bush had only to coast on the Clinton economy, he didn't need wars and death. What gets into these peoples heads to do these horrible things? It happens so often, I just don't get it.

    Let it not go unnoted that the partisan scum of this country have yet to mention anything positive towards Obama or his foreign policies.
    It cost us 0 lives and only about 1 bil to achieve succes in overturning a brutal dictator while BushCo presided over the worst decade in history with their policies and cost us dearly in multitudes of ways beyond the trillion in Iraq and nearly 5000 lives. Obama has kicked ass vs terrorism and projecting Democracy, while the scum of this country are the terrorists.

    Okay, but let us not count McCain as one of the partisan scum, since he had some good words today about the success of Obama's policy.

    It turns out that Libya has Africa's largest oil reserves and measured in quality it is superior to Saudi oil. How fortunate.

    The other regimes in Libya have a very foggy background. Almost nothing is really known about their goals and motives,outside of the fact that NATO intervened and took out a sovereign state. The factions within Libya are numerous and under intense intelligence scrutiny
