Human Rights Violation and the Death of Muammar Gaddafi*

After decades of human rights violations orchestrated by the Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi was dragged through the streets in a vicious display of violence. Let me be clear that there is not an ounce of sympathy in my body for the man and to be candid I feel that the way he died was a too good for him. Thinking with a mind focused on the political/military aspects of his death it seems reasonable that we played a rather large part in taking him down considering how he killed American citizens. But to be honest, I don’t want to talk about that. I want to talk about the odd thing that is happening with the United Nations regarding this awful man’s death.

The UN has suggested that the killing of the former Libyan leader by rebel forces amounts to a war crime. That’s right. The killing of a crazed abusive ruler by the people who he oppressed is considered a war crime by the symbol of international peace keepin (the symbol in theory anyway. Not God awful reality). I don’t know about you, but this logic (or lack there of) blows my mind.

I understand that there are “rules” when it comes to war (I actually don’t understand this) and that the UN investigating the execution is more symbolic than anything 0f substance (meaning pointless), but it just seems so hypocritical. It’s almost like if the UN wanted to withold food from starving African nations because famine has rights too (this is a terrible metaphor). If anything, though, maybe this kind of UN action will have the United States re-thinking it’s participation with this global group. Probably not though and that sucks.
