What will be the last view of Gaddafi of this world? August 21, 2011 by Tjebbe van Tijen For the version with two tableau pictures and links see The Limping Messenger: http://limpingmessenger.wordpress.com/2011/08/21/what-will-be-the-last-view-of-gaddafi-of-this-world/ -------- [tableau: which way up?] What will be the last view of Gaddafi of this world? which way up? which way down? what will be our last view of him? the anti-colonial guerilla fighter hero he associated with Omar al Mukhtar – Lion of the Desert – hung in 1931 by the Italian fascist colonial regime under Benito Mussolini (Gaddafi wore the last photograph of Mukhtar alive just before his execution as a badge on his military uniformwhen visiting Berlusconi in Italy in 2009) or the ruthless dictator Benito Mussolini, as captured by Italian Partisans in 1945, when he tried to flee to Switzerland and executed on the spot, hung by his feet – the flag of his copy cat green revolution waved four decades the regime he helped create repressed as many people as it did bind, to its peculiar form of common wealth despised and embraced at the same time, by other leaders from other countries who drew their plans for his removal while celebrating their meetings with him those from his own camp, who now leave him to face up to his last days will trample on his face to hide their own past will his court be in the streets or in The Hague? there will be no singular view of Gaddafi as with all dictators both his face and the way we see it are split.
