CBS says Obama won 53-23, plus minus 4. Neo-con city upon a hill seems to have catched fire.

Both sides have killed civilians. NATO has, based on neutral reports, killed hundreds of civilians (and abandoned hundreds of others to die on the sea, if you believe the claims of survivors; there are also 100+ rebels NATO has killed). We can claim that the regime has killed more civilians, and of this point there can be little doubt, but NATO has not only targeted military installations and Gaddafi's troops have mainly targeted rebel troops, not civilians. The rebel troops themselves are, of course, too done unsavoury things. All said, the regime comes out the worst by objective account, but NATO has done it's share of killing.

Gaddafi might be "a piece of shit", but when western politicians like Margaret Thatcher were declaring that Nelson Mandela "is a terrorist" and Reader's Digest were doing the same for the large audience, Gaddafi was supporting ANC. I hope that as many people as possible will remember when the obituaries of these two will be written. Gaddafi has killed and oppressed Libyans, sure, and the fall of his regime is good, but could we at least accept that he did good things and many of western elder statesman have done far worse things than him?
