Libya- death of the dictator, what happens now?

20 Oct


A more civilised metaphorical picture?


Today we saw the bloody images documenting the death of Gaddafi. You’ve all seen them and I don’t intend on putting them on here.

In a statement today, the PM said “I think today is a day to remember all of Colonel Gaddafi’s victims, from those who died in connection with the Pan Am flight over Lockerbie, to Yvonne Fletcher in a London street, and obviously all the victims of IRA terrorism who died through their use of Libyan Semtex,” he said.

“People in Libya today have an even greater chance after this news of building themselves a strong and democratic future. I am proud of the role that Britain has played in helping them to bring that about and I pay tribute to the bravery of the Libyans who helped to liberate their country. We will help them, we will work with them and that is what I want to say today.”

Whether you agree with his violent death, whether you agree or not with the graphic images of his death, I hope that now the shadow of tyranny that for decades has stalked Libya, libyans can now rebuild a nation with their own desires and dreams.

What happens now?

With Gaddafi dead,
the tyrant’s blood shed,
What happens now?
Is Libya liberated,
The no-fly zone terminated.
Thirst for justice sated,
What happens now?
Will the guns fall silent or get more violent,
What happens now?
Has the peace been won,
Has the healing begun,
A new life under shining sun,
What happens now?
