Which begs the most important question:-

Will you now be dropping 'Colonel' and his 'star' and reverting to plain 'Graham'?

(Seem to remember the adoption of these extras was prompted by the original 'Gaddafi' thread.)

Coming next, the trial of the century...

Don't think so! Multiple [only partially confirmed] sources now reporting he's died of his wounds....

He certainly looked dead in the photo that was briefly on BBC News home page, now been taken down...

I have indeed returned to civvy street, albeit with a star - you can't get your old name back.

I believe BBC have reported his death. I was in a Charity shop when I heard the news.Let's wish the people of Libya and the Transitional Council of Libya get things sorted.

He's dead, according to the Libyan interim government. Nick Clegg has also confirmed the fact.

It must be a huge relief for the people who are going to have their work cut out trying to stabilise Libya over the coming months. The last thing they would have wanted was to have to worry about a Gaddafi resurgence gaining momentum behind their backs.

good news.

now will it become a free moderate islamic country or an islamic state like iran went into after the shah run on Fundamentalism.

Libya as always been a 'moderate' state compared to some other muslim states. The problem now might be what the Western World or other 'Powers' wants, and what the local people want, perhaps taking into consideration the way Iraq is turning out!.

Whatever the way forward, you can bet your bottom dollar, that there are many eyes looking at the situation?.
