There is no good that we can really remember about the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. What many like me want to do is to forget the BS that he has been serving to the world. It is about time we saw him fall, thanks to rebels and some outside intervention the world especially Libya is free off his sinister rule. He was caught in a cross fire in his Sirte stronghold. He had been on the run for quite a long time after he was chased by rebels out of Tripoli with the help of the NATO bombers of course. By the looks of things, he died a pretty miserable death.

He had been in power for forty two good years. When it comes to death, not so many people are usually up in celebration, but not in this case. The one thing that this revelation has brought to many parts of the world is celebration. This is what many like me have been expecting for a really long time. The great thing about it all is that the world and specifically Libya is free from his rule forever.

I think we should really look at his history and his background, but on second thought, I think we should really look at the really interesting stuff; his death. He has been responsible for many deaths not only in Libya but also for the deaths of other individuals of other nationalities. Being in power for a whole forty two years, he is the longest serving president in Africa and also the longest serving leader in the Arab world. After seizing power from the King Idris in a bloodless coup at the young age of twenty seven, you can be sure that this dictator knows a thing or two about clinging onto power and this is exactly what he did. He had been clinging onto power for a really long time despite the sanctions and unrest that had rocked his country. Thanks to the valiant efforts of the rebels, finally the whole world has a reason to smile; one more tyrant gone.

On quite a different note, I think that there are a few things that I will remember about the dictator, now don’t think of me as a Muammar Gaddafi supporter or anything, but I have to admit that I really will live to remember his beautiful gun totting body guards, but that’s just about it. Which gets me thinking; if I ever think of getting into politics, I’m getting myself some beautiful body guards. I can’t wait for that day.

We can only wait and see what this development means for the great country that is Libya and for the rest of the world. With the right measures, we will be seeing a better Libya than the tarnished image that has been left by the dictator Muammar Gaddafi. A new nation is surely on the rise, we can just hope that the steps will be directed in the right direction.
