Muammar Gaddafi is Dead: Fact or Fiction?

Gaddafi Captured by NTC forces

The events of Gaddafi's capture

After a long and grueling battle, Libya’s revolutionary fighters finally overran Sirt and chased down Gaddafi. The problem? Gaddafi was leaving in a convoy when French NATO pilots bombed it. Remarkably, out of the 50 or so burned and charred corpses and wreckage, Muammar managed to escape (yet again) with a small group of guards. So he ran, 007 golden gun in hand, and hid in a sewer pipe. One of Gaddafi’s guards began waiving his rifle with a white cloth at the tip yelling, “My master is injured.” As the fighters got closer he began shooting at them. When the fighters finally closed in they found his body guards dead, one shot in the head and the other his head cut off, and Muammar in the sewer pipe. He showed little resistance when they caught him.

According to the videos shown later on, he was paraded on the hood of a truck bloody with no shoes on. He was taken off the hood to a wild crowd of people pushing and shoving. One man even lunged at Muammar Gaddafi and when people pulled him off someone pulled Gaddafi’s hair. We see another video of Gaddafi laying on his stomach, his shirt partially ripped off and a small pool of blood. When they roll him on his back in the video, he appears dead. They later report that he died on his way to a hospital in Misrata 120km away from Sirt. After pictures of a dead Gaddafi begin appearing, the National Transition Council makes a statement saying that Gaddafi in fact died from a bullet to the head while caught in the crossfire between NTC forces and Gaddafi Loyalists.

The story you hear above is just 1 account of what happened. There are numerous accounts of what happened to Gaddafi and all of them are conflicting. Some say when the fighters closed in on him at the sewer pipe, he yelled, “Don’t shoot my sons!” others say when they caught him he said: “What happened? What do you what?” as if he doesn’t know the “rats” are looking for him.

Some people say he was shot in the upper left shoulder, some say he was shot in the arm, more specifically some say his right arm. Some say he was shot in the leg, others say he was shot in both legs. Some people even say he was shot in the back and others say he was shot in the stomach. One account even says that he had no wounds when they caught him in the pipe and that later on some one shot him in the crowd of people.

Some say he died on his way to the hospital in the crossfire, but then we see a video of him apparently dead on the concrete outside. Someone even said that they took a piece a hair for DNA testing and his hair turned out to be “artificial”.

When the very first reports came out that Gaddafi was captured I remember Aljazeera saying he was surounded in a building. Then they changed it and said he was caught while trying to leave in a convoy and then they said he was caught in a sewer pipe. One man even went on record live on Aljazeera English to say that Gaddafi was sleeping in a building with his guards when some one shot him with a 9mm hand gun.

So we have a Gaddafi with 8 different bullet wounds, who was caught in 3 different places, he said “don’t shoot” and then he didn’t know what happened or who his captors were, his body guard’s head fell off, he has a golden gun and his hair is fake.

Now I’m no detective but when there are that many wildly conflicting stories, each contradicting each other, something is just not right. Remember folks this is what happened with 9/11, conflicting stories in the begin and then they settle on a final story that still doesn’t make sense. If nothing was hidden, if the truth was right in front of everyone’s eyes, why would there even be 1 conflicting story.

If you still don’t believe that something fishy is going on here’s the knock out punch, an article was released 6 days before Gaddafi’s capture and eventual death stating that the NTC were tracking Gaddafi’s whereabouts by satellite and that he was in the desert of Libya south of Sebha. By this point only 1 city in Libya was partially under pro-Gaddafi control. How did he get from the desert south of Sebha to Sirt without an encounter with NTC forces? Sirt was surrounded from all directions, NTC fighters were already controlling major parts of Sirt. How did he enter the city without getting captured? If he entered the city why was he trying to escape?

These are the questions that must be asked and the very reason that these question exist are suspicious in itself.

Gaddafi’s Timetable: Predicting The End #3

Just wanted to add to the previous posts in terms of what I have learned so far. We have a few “weird” events that took place in Tripoli. So, lets just recap the whole situation. We have a man and his sons, this man is the brutal dictator of Libya. He started a war against his own people, he called them “rats.” He gave them Benghazi, a bunch of rusty old soviet-era weaponry and said “Fight!”

This man said he will never surrender, he will live and die in his country (Libya). His son said he will live and die in this country. This man said he was in the capital city Tripoli. He said come and get me if you’re feeling strong, not his exact words but….you know. He had followers in this city, people to do as he wished, gathering at the “Green Square” every night to “celebrate” this man’s 42 year rule. he told then to dance, to dance and sing. He gave them weapons and he taught them how to use these weapons. He said when the rats come we’ll kill them.

The rats were on their way and they had help. NATO signed up for the noble cause and by being the “eagle” in the sky they helped the rats get closer.  This man was a talkative man, he often gave speeches to his loyal followers. In these speeches he called the rats “al-Qaeda terrorists” and he called NATO the “crusaders.” So, the al-Qaeda crusader terrorist rats marched on to Tripoli unphased by this mans seemingly nonsensical ramblings.

As the war went on the rats became Lions and Tigers, Fighters of Freedom, Defenders of the Oppressed.

Were they perfect? Heck no, but who is?

Did they know how to fight? Heck no, but who does?

After months of fighting and night after night of commanding his dear followers to dance and sing, the man stopped showing his face. He addressed his dear loyal followers by audio only. Nevertheless, his loyal followers didn’t care to question this, they continued on dancing and singing. As this man dared the Freedom Fighters to come to Tripoli, the Lions of Misrata and the Tigers of Jabil Nafusa were well on their way. When the people of Tripoli rose up from the from the prison city they lived in and broke the shackles that this man had put on them, a mighty uprising it was indeed.

By now all of Libya was against this man, all of Libya was free. However, something interesting happened. After 6 months of taunting and daring the rats to come to Tripoli, this man was nowhere to be seen. His dear loyal followers vanished, and the man disappeared into thin air only his old coarse voice can be heard urging his loyal followers to fight the rats that had taken over Tripoli. By now these weren’t rats in Tripoli these were people, not a violent people but a kind people. These were people in Tripoli that never wanted to fight but they had no choice.

 

This man is Muammar Al-Gaddafi, he hasn’t shown his face in months, only releasing audio messages. His followers just vanished in Tripoli and now Gaddafi regime spokesman, Musa Ibrahim, says they have enough people to fight back for months or even years. Where did they get these people from? Are they the followers in Tripoli? Were they evacuated before the uprising? Where is Muammar Al-Gaddafi? Why are his sons still in Tripoli but Muammar won’t show his face and can’t be found? So many questions and even more questions have emerged with the Tripoli uprising. One fact remains evident, 8/23/11. Does this date look familiar? This is the date that Freedom Fighters in Tripoli stormed Muammar Gaddafi’s compound. 8+23+11=42 Muammar Al-Gaddafi has been in power for 42 years. Coincidence? perhaps but not likely this is not his birthday or something this is a seemingly random date. They could have stormed his compound at anytime. They were fighting in Tripoli for 3 days.

 

Gaddafi’s Timetable: Predicting The End #2

Okay, so BIG developments with Libya and mainly Tripoli. The buzz on Twitter is that all of Tripoli is free at the moment. A few rumors are floating around Twitter as well.

Supposedly, Saif Al-Gaddafi (Muammar Al-Gaddafi’s Son) has been captured and there is currently fighting around the Rixos hotel which houses Mussa Ibrahim (Libya Spokesperson) and Yousif Shakir (propaganda specialist). Reports are saying that Gaddafi’s security force has surrendered.

Now these are all just reports and rumors from Twitter by people who are Tweeting from Tripoli or within Libya. I will update to further confirm these reports.

However, something rather interesting happened as well…..Muammar Al-Gaddafi is nowhere to be seen. He has apparently disappeared. Now, while it may seem that my timetable of at least September may be wrong I still stand by it. Libya will not be safe so long as Muammar is still at large where ever he may be hiding.  I didn’t expect Tripoli to fall this fast and I was really expecting a big disastrous fight in Tripoli. The Freedom Fighters of Libya apparently took the city of 1.5 million in just 1 day.

Update: Apparently Muammar Gaddafi’s other son Muhammad has surrendered to Freedom Fighters. Also reports that Saif Al-Gaddafi had little security when he was captured – almost as if he wanted to be captured yeah? more coming.

Update #2: Saif Al-Gaddafi has not been captured, it was a hoax. His other son Muhammad was also never captured.

Update #3: October 20th 2011 – Muammar Gaddafi was captured and killed by NTC forces in Sirt. Mutassim Gaddafi was also captured and subsequently executed also in Sirt.

  • 5 Reasons Why Nokia’s Laptops Will Dominate!

    Article from itproportal.com

    The announcement that Nokia will be launching its own range of laptops has sent shock waves across the tech sector and could cause a (much) bigger revolution than Asus’ Netbooks.

    We gaze at our Crystal ball in the high towers at ITProPortal.com to find out that the future is bright for Nokia if they choose to go down that way and here’s why.

    (1) Bargaining Power

    Nokia accounts for around 450 million mobile phones every year and although the global economic downturn may dent this, the Finnish manufacturer still produces roughly 1 in every 3 phones on the planet. This gives the Finnish manufacturer a formidable bargaining power that can drive prices down, computer or anything else.

    (2) Experience

    Nokia has far more experience selling worldwide than most players out there. The handset manufacturer is uniquely placed to sell mobile computers to people on all five continents. The Nokia 1100 for example is testament of the company’s fantastic ability to adapt to local requirements. More than 200 million Nokia 1100 were sold since 2003, more than the PS2 or the iPod.

    (3) Brand Name

    Nokia is one of the biggest and most well known brands in the world, regularly appearing in top 100 brands lists. last year, one published by Interbrand ranked it at number 5, above Google (10) and well above Apple (24). Its universal popularity will give it a head start in emerging markets like Brazil or Russia.

    (4) Comes With Music

    Nokia has another card up its sleeve. “Comes with Music” subscription service could well prove to be a winner in more mature countries where it could trump Apple and iTunes. In emerging countries, combined with advertising, a free CMW could prove radical against the plight of piracy. All of course, bundled with Nokia’s mobile computer.

    (5) Symbian

    Unlike say Asus, Nokia has complete control over both hardware and software. The prototype mobile computer that Unwiredview claims Nokia demoed at the recent MWC used Linux. But chances are that it will use Symbian, an OS and a platform that it knows inside out and that could be at the core of its mobile computer offering.

    BREAKING: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is confirmed as one of the game’s voice actors reveals that he has completed work on the upcoming CoD6.

    Joystiq reports that the sixth installment in Activision’s immensely-popular war-themed FPS franchise, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, has just been confirmed.

    This huge news broke after voice actor Ken Lally (Wesker from Resident Evil 5) revealed to Coin-Op TV that he has completed voice work for Call of Duty 6.

    Sony posts huge $2.9 billion loss, responds with new PSP 'carnival' colors 

    By Brennon Slattery, PC World

    What’s the best way to recover after a $2.9 billion annual operating loss? Sony says: introduce new PSP colors!

    The PSP-3000 is receiving a carnival makeover in Japan with the introduction of four new retina-melting colors: Radiant Red, Vibrant Blue, Bright Yellow and Spirited Green. The PSP hardware specs remain the same, and the ?24,800 ($279) bundle includes a 4GB MemoryStick, a pouch and a hand strap.

    These new colors hit the Tokyo streets in March. No word yet on whether these colors will make it over to North America, or if we’ll be left out of the party.
