International news does not live in a vacuum, so when the news hit about Libyan President Muammar Gadaffi’s gruesome death, the world was alert and watching.

Then just like that, he was overwhelmed by militant rebels, brutally shot. Some argue that this is the expected end of many a dictator, and Gadaffi was no different.
But in spite of his crimes against humanity and decades of tyrannical rule, did Gadaffi really deserve the hand he was dealt?
