Libya is dead, long live Libya. Colonel Gaddafi ruled over Libya for more than 40 years, but yesterday it came to a bloody end. Gaddafi might be dead and Libya (and the world) rejioces, bt the hard part starts now. Rebuilding a nation shattered by months of war and controlling thousands of freedom fighters and their guns. I don’t think we’ve seen the end of Libya’s troubles.
