The death of Muammar Gaddafi and the future of Libya

Libyan TV is reporting that Muammar Gaddafi has been captured by NTC fighters (the article has been updated) in Sirte. I guess it was just a matter of time before he would be found and captured. Hopefully he will get a fair trial and then be punished for his crimes.

Update: It has now been confirmed that Muammar Gaddafi has died of his wounds after being captured near Sirte. The Guardian reports that this image purportedly shows the arrest of Gaddafi.

Al Jazeera has acquired exclusive footage of the body of Muammar Gaddafi.

What do you think the death of Muammar Gaddafi means for the future of Libya? Would it have been better if Gaddafi would have gotten a fair trial? Or does his death now mean that the Libyan people can finally start a new and hopefully better and more democratic chapter in its country's history?

I think its good that he died in "battle". This way the country will have a much easier time building the new Libya. Because they wont need to yap about Gadaffis crimes in a court for ages first...

Watching some news about it, people in Libya seems to be so happy about it and looking forward for a new beginning in their country. It was good that war against him had ended since a lot of civilians are being involved and had died on those attacks too. Hope they could really find a good leader that will give them freedom and better nation.
