This video that catches the last hours of Muammar Kadhafi is bloodcurdling; beyond his words that he wanted powerful, we see and feel the decline and fear of a man surrounded by his « enemies ». Even if we all know that he can be considered as a « mass killer », seeing an old man struggling, dying… remains difficult. He threatened Qatar in a symbolic way – for reasons I’m unaware of – or, maybe, I would like to believe, begged, in a desperate attempt, for their help. A man who has lived by the sword, and who has died by the sword.
