Libya Is Free

Today we were reached by the news that the Libyan rebel army has liberated the town of Sirte. The town, which was the birthplace of Muammar Gaddafi, was his last stronghold. The people of Libya have thereby finally rid themselves of the dictator, his family and his henchmen.

According to the news agencies it has now been confirmed that Gaddafi was killed during or after the battles.

Although I would have prefered to have seen Gaddafi stand trial for his crimes against humanity at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, The Netherlands, I still rejoice with the people of Libya for their liberation after 42 years of tyranny.

I hope with all my heart that the people of Libya will now be able to hold true to their hopes of peace and a democratic development against the many powers within and outside the country who may wish to replace one dictatorship with another in order to get control over the Libyan oil fields.
