Muammar Gaddafi killed

The longest-ruling Arab leader and the fourth longest-ruling non-royal leader since 1900, Muammar Gaddafi was killed last October 20, 2011 in his own hometown on the Mediterranean coast of Sirte, in the country of Libya after a 42 year long reign as an autocratic leader.   He has been an authoritarian ruler of his own country and he has been known for his brutality and madness even towards his people.

It was believed that what happened to him is due to a rebel cause.  Gaddafi has been shot on his head and the other shot to his chest and was killed out of rage because of his violence.  He has been captured by the angry and aggressive fighters who once have been called as rats by Muammar Gaddafi.

Going through the details of his death, he still suffered the madness of the people who were formerly part of his victims of his cruelty.  Upon struggling, with almost a half body full of blood and very much wounded, he was displayed through dragging him in a parade along the streets of Sirte.  His corpse was then placed in a walk-in refrigerator at a shopping mall in Misrata as a symbol of pride by showing to all that Muammar Gaddafi has already died.

Now, after Muammar Gaddafi has passed away, confusion reigns at Libya at present since his death is lack of clarity.  Also, his burial has been delayed by the Libya’s National Transitional Council to give enough time for the investigators to trace his death and to give ample time for the council to choose an appropriate secret site for his burial as well.  Nevertheless, a big blast announcement is to be made with regards to the liberation of the country tomorrow in Benghazi by Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the chairman of the Libya’s National Transitional Council.

 

WHO IS MUAMMAR GADDAFI?

Muammar Gaddafi was born in a tent in Sirte which was only an irrelevant village to a tribe of herders.  Later on with his life as he became the ruler of Libya, his own country, he then made Sirte, his birthplace, as the second most extensive and largest city in the country.  He grew up to be an authoritarian person.  One who possesses the ability to overpower others, brutality, an individual who is strict and demanding when it comes to obedience, and a person who acquires a tyrannical attitude.

Apart from all of his achievements of being a colonel leader in Libya, showing great authority upon his people, few are still laughing at him.  Laughing but not in a sense of overtly criticizing him but instead, some laughs at his weird and strange abilities and characteristics.  Some of these are:

  • It was when Muammar Gaddafi was captured by a man wearing a Yankees cap.  A revolutionary military man known to be so dignified plus knowing that he’s in chase of a wanted dictator, wore a clothing like frat guys do, would really get you to wonder and laugh.

  • Another weird moment on the life of Muammar Gaddafi was about his obsession towards Condoleezza Rice, ex-US Secretary of the United States of America.  News really got into them and published their story in details.  The weird thing started to happen when Gaddafi invited Condoleezza Rice, whom she called his “African Princess” to visit and have dinner at his place, a tent actually where he lived.  He even composed a song for her and saved pictures of his princess in a videotape.  That’s something to be shocked about when talking about his madness.
  • A violent and a skeptical man like Muammar Gaddafi surrounds himself with dozens of female bodyguards and team of nurses.  His female bodyguards were into camouflage fatigues, with red nail polish and using high-heeled sandals, while carrying with them their submachine guns and nurses were also in heavy make-up. Well, that’s something to ponder about.  According to him, he is just showing off his love for women and his belief in female emancipation.

 

 

 

In an army’s mind

Many of us see armies on operations, in the battlefield, or on trainings, looking like robots, untouchable, brave, and strong. These tough men, how tough are they really? What are they like without their uniforms on? After all, they're just humans like you and me.

I've always wondered what goes on in their minds. So when I got the chance, I fired up questions that has been playing on my mind.Here are excerpts from the "interview" I had with a Filipino army:

 

Q: Why did you decide to join the army?

A: While growing up, I've always been fascinated by the men in uniform. I got to spend playtime hours at the barracks and I can't help admiring them. My father is a retired sergeant-general and I'd like to follow in his footsteps.

 

Q: What do you do when there are no operations and/or battles to go to?

A: We work like any other institution, really. We have our own designations. For example, I'm assigned in writing articles for our newsletter. There are other functions. On other times, we also undergo trainings and seminars.

 

Q: Have you ever been wounded in a battle?

A: No, and I don't intend to.

Q: But you know that there is the possibility. What do you do when you're in a battlefield?

A: Initial reaction is to dock, hide, save self. But after a while, adrenaline kicks in. It's like another person takes over and you do what you have to do.

Q: Do you still feel fear when there's an exchange of bullets?

A: Naturally. There's always fear. But you have to push that aside. You need to leave no room for doubts and fears or else it'll kill you.

 

Q: What about killing someone? How does it feel?

A: Of course, I feel sad for a life wasted. For years, I've struggled about the fact that my job doesn't coincide with my beliefs. I'm a Christian and it's in the commandments not to kill. There were nights when my conscience wouldn't let me sleep. It's good though that we have counsel leaders. I also read the bible and tried to seek for answers. I then realized that I have to kill in order to protect the innocent. It's my job to make sure their lives are peaceful. I need to stop the bad guys from doing harm to those who couldn't defend themselves. If I wouldn't, who would?

 

Q: What's the worst thing about being in the army?

A: The fact that i can't be with my family on special occasions and important events. I wanted to see my children's first steps, bring them to school on their first day, witness them blow every candle on their cake each year. All those things, knowing that I won't be able to do those, break my heart. But because I can only be with them a few times, those rare occasions are made special. The situation made us treasure each minute I spend with them.

Q: What's the best?

A: Knowing that I'm helping and serving a lot of people, that I save lives,  that I'm doing a selfless, honorable job.
