Amid reports that Gaddafi has been killed this is the joint statement by European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and EU Commission President José Manuel Barroso*:
The reported death of Muammar Gaddafi marks the end of an era of despotism and repression from which the Libyan people have suffered for too long. Today Libya can turn a page in its history and embrace a new democratic future. We call on the National Transitional Council to pursue a broad based reconciliation process which reaches out to all Libyans and enables a democratic, peaceful and transparent transition in the country.
I also wonder what Tony Blair has to say?

*hattip: Ironies Too


  1. Good riddance!!!! Someone who will be remembered for looting the country for 42 years!!!! Hope Syria and Yemen follow suit.Hope Arab spring revolts succeed and eliminate all forms of monarchy and usher in democratic and clean governments.

  2. Why is Blair still walking around
    he has killed far more people than Gaddafi ever did.

  3. @Rahul Can't say I disagree

    @Anon There's always time.
