Gaddafi is dead or is he? Cries of liberation ring through the streets yet there were those who had a good life in Gaddafi's Libya. Meanwhile Libya's interm rulers have announced that the body of Colonel Gaddafi has been buried. His remains were taken to a secret location in the desert and only four witnesses were present. The secrecy and mystery about his death have many in the Middle East - and a few here - questioning if what has been done is right.
Yesterday the Libyans, who have ignored the water shortages and tribal conflict, were shocked by the interm government's declaration that Sharia Law would dominate. Certainly the US and Britain didn't expect this and I shouldn't think France - having been part of the 'destroy Gaddafi' project - did either.
I think the UK were far too quick in becoming involved with the Libyan conflict. It was the same with Iraq. We gave no consideration to the results of our intrusion. Our involvement in destroying Gaddafi is nothing more than disgraceful, especially since so many of our leaders brought him 'on-side' in recent years. Now we're beginning to see the result of assisting Libyans free themselves from dictatorship with the victors imposing Sharia Law.
When Scotland is independent then I'm sure - I hope it's not naivety - that it will not become involved in the affairs of other countries.
