Libya, the end of Gaddafi

(edited  October 21st)  Following the liberation of Sirte today, October 20th, an US Predator drone and 2 French Mirage (apparently a 2000D and a F1CR) would have stop a fleeing convoy with Hellfire missiles and GBU-12 bombs.

Colonel Gaddafi, would have took part in this convoy and would have been captured alive by  Libyan NTC fighters but would have been killed (executed ?) later during a gun fight.   .

"When the car was moving it was caught in crossfire between the revolutionaries and Gaddafi forces in which he was hit by a bullet in the head," said Mr Jibril, quoting from the official NTC report.

The death of the Libyan dictator will probably mark the end of the war for NATO forces. According to the French Ministry of defense, no weapon were fired by the French Rafale and Mirage jets during the last 32 Air to Ground missions because of a lack of targets.... until this afternoon.

  1. News has it that Gaddafi's 100+ four-wheel convoy was first intercepted by allies aircraft before being engaged by ground forces. Way to go Libyan ground forces and UN-backed allies air forces!

  2. Don't believe the official version of his death. Seeing the videos, he has just been lynched and killed by the over excited/savage rebels.
    Great job from the French air force in general.

  3. A violent man met a violent end - that's justice in its cruelest form.

    It's bad enough that thousands needed to suffer from Gaddafi's brutality throughout the decades.
