Libyan rebels declare Gadhafi dead

Posted By on October 20, 2011

After 42 years of dictatorial power, the Libyan people look to be finally free from they dictator Moammar Gadhafi.  Claims, photos and shaky video on Thursday show a dead Gadhafi as he an his fighters made a final hometown stand according to rebel leaders in the battle weary north African country. Although the end was inevitable, those seeking change in this country are another step closer to beginning a new chapter for Libya.

I’d like to be confident that the next 42 years will be better, but with radical groups of all kinds looking to the overthrow as a way to gain power, I’m not holding my breath. Who knows if instability is going to be any better than dealing with a military dictator?
