Colonel Gaddafi Dead: First Photo Of Bloodied Gaddafi Emerges (Picture)

Soaked in blood and looking empty eyed into the camera lens – is this the image of Colonel Gaddafi the world will remember?

It is the first photo to emerge which claims to show the fallen dictator moments after he was apparently shot in the legs and lower abdomen.

Gaddafi’s hair looks lank and greasy and his clothes dripping with dark blood in the mobile phone image which has been distributed by Getty and AFP.

He appears to be flanked by numerous people who are also covered in red blood and seem to be dragging him along.

If it is Gaddafi, then data on the screen suggests he was still alive today at 12.23pm Libyan time – 10.23am UK time.

At this stage the source remains unconfirmed.

A senior National Transitional Council official, Abdel Majid, told Reuters by telephone that Gaddafi has died of wounds suffered during his capture in Sirte.

Reuters reported that he was wounded in both legs as he “tried to flee in a convoy which Nato warplanes attacked.”

An NTC spokesman told Sky News that Gaddafi “is dead and his body is being taken to Misratah”. He said that Gaddafi was “shot in the legs and in the head”.

    It’s been almost twenty four hours since the news about the tyrant’s death broke out around the world and guess what, the pro-PFDJ websites have yet to publish the news where they seem to be terrified about the prospect of Isaias facing the same fate.

    Your motto “haqqi Nzareb” seems spinning out of control into something like “zemeselena Nzareb”. Before addressing the kernel of your argument, lets do some number crunching. Eritrea bought a 30% participating share of Nevsun at fair market value of $253 million dollars. Thus the total worth of the company at the point of the said transaction stood at $843.3 million dollars (or roughly speaking almost three times Ethiopia’s total coffee export revenue of around 350 million dollars per year). This of course is only the Bisha segment of what is dubbed as “the cusp of minerals boom” by some analysts. Add to that the Sunridge zara project due to go operational in few years, even add south boulder’s potash estimated at $150 billion dollar value, you sure get the idea.

      Let us check if you know
      Is it justice to jail a hero because he quesitoned huge shipment that were confiscated with liberation of Aseb to part with because Meles demanded it(1991)? This war hero never seen light of day since.
      Is it justice that a president could break(granted his friend but an Eritrean cititizen ) a citizen’s face with a whiskey bottle in a night club and dash out through the kitchen with his body guards running after him?
      Would you order execution of heroic disabled veterans?

      To be contd’

      . Would you connive with a UNIONIST but granted from an avid Tewhdo champions to remove an anointed patriarch per the rule of the Tewho religion?
      10. Would you then refuse this Patriarch from retiring into a monastry? essentially freezing him?
      11. Would you freeze essential , eduacated memebers of your leadership while paying them?

      god bless your heart my brother…hat is Haqi!!

    However, my assertion that the “corporation” component of the sanction regime is what appears to be stalling it seems to starkly contrast your wishful thinking of “the magic bullet” is what is sought for and delaying it. In the marketing world there is a belief that the average longest distance between two strangers is no more than ten people. You and me may not know personally, but I may know some one who lives where you reside, who may know some one who knows you, that makes us a mere two people apart. I could even say you may know some one in your area who knows the mayor of your city personally, and the mayor may know a minister who in turn knows the head of state and the head of state knows Ban Ki Moon. This puts you a mere four people away from Ban Ki Moon (you are more important than you think!). Corporations have a direct access to high offices when they are playing around with a billion dollar budget. So, sleep in peace, no mining sanctions in Eritrea.

      I should say, I am impressed with the numbers. And I won’t challenge you on that for I have a very limited knowledge about the number of companies investing in Eritrea or who are in the exploration business. I am just curious though, were you by any chance referring to the “Six degrees separation” theory? One more thing, why would I get the feeling that, you’re not an average “Gebre” (read Joe), where you could be a hot shot PFDJ b’Al siltan? May I address you as H.E. Ambassador Qozami?

      • kozami October 21, 2011

        Thank you btsay Temesgen for your kind opening remark. As to the possibility of my being a PFDJ official, the answer is not at all. Admittedly, I was fortunate enough to have many close friends in that circle, but my day job pays me enough kalie malie keyequamt. With regards to your proposed title to go in front of ma lamentation/kuzema, ewae Haqqi Nezarem arkey keyken’uly ember ane’s aymtselaekun, entay keybleni hawka.

          I am sure a guy of your caliber walks all the way to the bank with a big smile on his face. I wouldn’t be surprised if your m’Altawi moya pays you say, six figures (A bit inflated? Probably but potentially you could make that much). As for the appellation of Ambassadorship, as much as you could have been of a greater use in that position, Isaias wouldn’t allow you to be one. Simply because it runs against his nature where he feels comfortable surrounding himself with not so brainy (read small men) as he has an aversion to a person of an intellect. Entay d’U zezar’bena zelo? Ayy n’su end’U zezar’bena zelo. Eritrea a nation of people with an impeccable character; Eritrea a nation of people with a Spartan devotion to the motherland; Eritrea a nation of people who believe in the art of possibility tragically fell under the cruel hands of a monster who has set out to destroy everything Eritrean. If truth to be told, Eritrea under a sober leader would have found her place in the annals of history as a beacon of hope, a stellar story of success and an inspiration to the Dark Continent at large.

            Mindful of our differences in opinion, your use of language to express yours has left me speechless (in admiration of course).

          • Balancing_Act October 21, 2011


            You are very brief and to the point, and very civil in making your argument in way one can understand it. We need more civility among our selves when debating issues concerniing situations in our homeland.

      You seem you have some numbers to make Nevsun appear like a big corporation. In reality the company is still small. It only operates in Eritrea, not any where in the world. The company is in Canada, no USA. I am sure; Susan Rice will not be swayed by this tiny company. For USA, it is better to punish dictators like Issais right now instead of giving them more time to wreck havoc in the Horn of Africa and elsewhere. To make things clear here is what the Nevsun-Issais purchase agreement reads:

      “The agreement price is US $253.5 million, which will be settled from the after tax cash flows generated by the Bisha mine”. The agreement was announced last August. God knows how long will take Issais to pay the said amount to Nevsun.

      Other part of your writing is simply hype. As with the numbers, I will take them with grain of salt. I hope you have not fabricated the rest of your numbers.

        Your point on payment method for the 30% participation is accurate as far as I can gather. I am not sure with the forward looking statement you appended their in however. Essentially, we are in for the ride and lets see what happens. Technically speaking though it looks like you “terrorism” bubble has been pricked good and proper in Uganda (this is referring to your second reply).

        • Haqqi Nezareb October 21, 2011


          The ” Terrorism Bubble” has not burst yet. Still alive and kicking. Those fool PFDJ operatives are not smart enough to hide evidences. The Monitory Group’s report has clearly depicted all the evidences, actually scattered everywhere. That why the sanction to be imminent.

          As usual, zombies would say” Where is the evidence or show me the evidence”

    • Haqqi Nezareb October 21, 2011


      In the second part of your comment you said, “Corporations have a direct access to high offices when they are playing around with billion dollar budget”. Are you referring to Nevsun? Do your high offices include UN? If it was an easy walk to the office of UN Security Council, many rich countries could prevent sanctions from being imposed on them. But the case with Eritrea is related with terrorist activity. It makes even the most powerful lobbyist difficult to do their job in cases related with terrorism. Eritrea is caught red-handed, as confirmed by the monitory group, involved with terrorist activity. There will be a sanction on Eritrea very soon, unless someone is a pipe-dreamer.

    Gaddafi is dead Isayas is next!

    Yes we can DISTROY the dictator ISAYAS and his terrorist organization the PFDJ where ever they are.
    Yes we will DISTROY the dictator ISAYAS and his terrorist organization the PFDJ where ever they are.
    Eritrea will be free soon!

    – The international community’s talking peace and carrying big stick [sanctions] is having an effect.
    – The Eritrean people are beginning to realize that there is no point in waiting for the regime to reform itself — that it needs to be overthrow.
    This is the moment we must come together to save our land and our people.

    Let freedom ring in Akeleguzay!
    Let freedom ring in Barka!
    Let freedom ring in Denkel!
    Let freedom ring in Hamasien!
    Let freedom ring in Sahil!
    Let freedom ring in Semhar!
    Let freedom ring in Senhit!
    Let freedom ring in Seraye!

    Let freedom ring in ERITREA!

    Let freedom ring allover Eritrea!
    Let’s LIVE FREE OR DIE with dignity.
    Our martyrs did not die to crown the tyrant.
    We must reclaim our flag, our constitution, Highi Indaba, our land (our original provinces), our people, and our culture.
    DISTROY the dictator ISAYAS and his terrorist organization the PFDJ where ever they are.
    Eritrea will be free soon!

  • Barentu October 21, 2011

    what original “cherqi” or flag do you have? or who cares about an old Awraja name or territory or region? or about old notions and ideas or so called laws put by some UN reps?
    You said about old “Higi endabas”, leave that to historians and archeologists to dig and worry about. Lets worry about justice, democracy and fairness now. There are good starting points in some Higi endabas, as there are outdated and old rules in some.
    Think modern, efficient and accountable ways to govern, not too old ideas. We need to grow up and move forward.

  • PFDJ(Popular For Dictatorship and Jail) October 21, 2011

    hey again the media of PFDJ(Popular For Dictatorship and Jail) keep silent while all the world watching the history.
    PFDJ you are the next victim, just you will see it, always the victory is with people not with these gangsters.

  • Temesgen Medhanie October 21, 2011


    Many thanks for those kind words hawey. I am sure it is in all of us. It is just at times we get emotionally charged where we later on regret it for malicious intent is not the primary drive.
