As Gaddafi's days are coming to a close, the image of a rat scurrying in hiding comes to mind.
The irony is that Gaddafi had the cheeks to call Libyans rats.
The image of another rat, Iraq's Saddam Hussein, hauled out of a rat-hole also comes to mind. Saddam was finally hanged and spat on in the process.
Both of them oppressed and terrorised their own people, lived in indecent luxury and thought that their days would never end.
But that they do should be a stark reminder to the dictators and oppressors, who are still a dime-a-dozen, that they are not gods.
The image of Syria's Bashar Asad sending tanks against his own people (reminiscent of Gaddafi's sending his air force to strafe his) and blaming foreign agents and local thugs for the people's uprising also comes to mind.
And the fact that dictators and oppressors are still aplenty in these days and age is a sad indictment of the human race and their madness for power and capacity for evil and greed.
