The big news story of the day is the death of Qaddafi. I've hated Gaddafi ever since the death of a high school friend in the Lockerbie bombing. I can't be elated at his death, though- the whole "dancing in the streets to celebrate death" is repulsive to me. That being said, I think the world at large, and the Libyans in particular, are better off with the colonel dead. I just hope that our foreign policy fosters real democracy and a just society in Libya. We don't have a good track record when it comes to that, though. The third-world strongmen are toppling, let's not replace them with more of the same.
UPDATE: Fuck, the looters are already making their plans to plunder Libya. What the hell is wrong with these monsters?
