UPDATE:(10/20/11):11:451m Col. Moammar Gaddafi, Libya’s eccentric and unpredictable leader for more than 40 years, who brought his oil-rich country to international pariah status, tried to restore it as a member in good standing in the global community and was ultimately deposed by a nationwide uprising, died Thursday in Sirte, his home town. His death was confirmed by Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril. He was 69. 

 Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril confirmed Gadhafi had been killed. "We have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Moammar Gadhafi has been killed," Jibril told a news conference in the capital Tripoli.  

Initial reports from fighters said Gadhafi had been holed up with the last of his fighters in the furious battle with revolutionary fighters assaulting the last few buildings they held in his Mediterranean coastal hometown of Sirte. At one point, a convoy tried to flee the area and was blasted by NATO airstrikes, though it was not clear if Gadhafi was in the vehicle.

Details as to how is not known but a spokesman for a member of the Tripoli military council says that one of Gadhafi's sons, Mutassim, and Gadhafi's chief of intelligence, Abdullah al-Senussi, also have been killed.

In another major development, revolutionary fighters said they wrested control of Sirte on Thursday. And NATO said it is going to convene soon for a meeting to discuss ending its operation in Libya

"Those who have betrayed the pledge they offered (to Gaddafi), how come they won't betray you?" she said, in a warning to Libyans.
"I assure you, he is fine, a believer in God, in good spirits, is carrying his gun and is fighting side by side with the warriors," she said.

Can Gaddafi survive, AGAIN!

Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi the leader of Libya since a bloodless military coup on September 1, 1969. At the age of 27 he overthrew King Idris of Libya and established the Libyan Arab Republic. Gaddafi is the longest-serving head of state in the Arab world. But are his days numbered?

Born in a Bedouin tent in the desert near Sirte on June 7, 1942. He graduated with honors from the University of Libya, Gaddafi served in the Libyan army and he was sent to Britain Royal Military Academy Sandhurst for training in 1966 pursuing a British military education.
Obama Meets Gaddafi 2009
After taking power, he launched a "cultural revolution" during which he removed all traces of former colonial and foreign influence, ranging from street signs and village names to the economic and political structure of the country.The ancient Qur'anic law of cutting off the hands of thieves was re-instituted, gambling and alcoholic beverages were outlawed, and all foreign petroleum assets were nationalized (1973).

Ronald Reagan called him "The Mad Dog of the Middle East"

Since Qaddafi took power the Libyan government has been known for its support of many international terrorist and guerrilla organizations, including the Irish Republican Army, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), and other extremist Arab and Islamic groups. In 1986 the United States sought to quell Libya's alleged terrorist activities by bombing several sites in Libya, code-named Operation El Dorado Canyon. Qaddafi survived, but several of his children were hurt or killed. In 1999, following the turning over of the suspects in the Lockerbie bombing, Qaddafi sought improved relations with Western European nations and issued a denunciation of terrorism. He also was a strong force behind the Organization of African Unity 's decision to transform itself into the African Union. Was he turning his ways against brutality, terrorism and humanity towards his people? NO.
