Africas´s longest serving leader, the self-described "King of Kings" Moammar Gaddafi seemingly has disappeared amid all the turmoil in his oil rich Libya. This is the beginning of the end for the leader, who already many years ago was described as "borderline insane" by the CIA (A rather polite description). Already tens of protesters have been killed by Libyan security forces. One must hope that the last days of this mad dictator will not lead to even more widespread bloodshed.
The West has hitherto turned a blind eye to the Gaddafi regime´s human rights violations. Now, when the Libyan people need help and support Obama, Merkel, Sarkozy and the others must in the strongest possible way condemn the killing of peaceful demonstrators and demand an end to the bloody Gaddafi regime.
