Chavez better hope that when he’s finally served justice, it’s not delivered in the very same fashion Gaddafi got it, in the head and up the rear. KGS

 Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Thursday expressed anger over the death of Muammar Qaddafi, calling it an “outrage” and saying the ousted Libyan strongman was a “martyr.”

“Sadly the death of Qaddafi has been confirmed,” said Chavez, who had just returned to Venezuela from cancer treatment in Cuba.

“They assassinated him. It is another outrage,” the Venezuelan leader told reporters in the town of La Grita.

“We shall remember Qaddafi our whole lives as a great fighter, a revolutionary and a martyr,” he said.

Chavez had defended Qaddafi since the start of the uprising against the Libyan leader’s regime in February, and accused NATO of using the conflict to gain control over Libya’s oil.

  1. not sure how I feel about Khaddafi. from what i read he helped Libya to be better than how it was under the previous leader (Idris?). And he seemed to sincerely care for Africa and African countries.

    Now I know he was hated by western media and sadly I know how that goes. You’ll probably never hear any good news about any African, Black, country -especially if there is a western country behind the scenes bribing its corrupt government or placing their own militia payed men to take over that country or if -like in the case of Haiti- they suppress the country from trading and declare it poverty stricken, etc.

    On the other hand, he was pretty ruthless with the Western countries and then the lockerby bomber. etc.

    I’m conflicted. its always hard when the news blends in African and Western clashes cuz i know its not always the whole truth that comes out. hmmm…

  2. Well, he’s dead now. I hope that helps your confusion. If muslim countries are so great, why does everyone who can leave(to just bring their problems with them) and why are there so many dictatorships that only change when they get overthrown? hmmm

  3. Anti-western dictators stick together, Cadaver Head was an evil murderous SOB, but he was much better then what is going to be the next government Libya has.

  4. Also, for sure Idon’t think Muslim countrires are “so great”. in fact, a little known(?) thing about kaddafi is that he is Jewish. His mother was taken by bedouins when she was just a little girl and given to Arabs….. Then Kaddafi was born.

    But most -I want to say all?? – Arab countries I haven’t seen this “dar al salem” yet! (dar al salem=house of peace. supposedly when the country is completely Muslim, there’s suppose to be peace.

    And I don’t think Libya was “sharia compliant” as well as Al Qaedawould like. I guess now they will be…
