Iran: Be Scared, Dictator – Gaddafi is Dead

This post is part of our special coverage Libya Uprising 2011.

Khamenei with Gaddafi

Khamenei with Gaddafi in more youthful times, from Iraniangreenvoice blog – original source unknown

Several Iranian bloggers joined Libyans in celebration on Thursday, after longtime Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi was killed. Some bloggers longed for the end of dictatorship in Iran, as they shared in Libyan joy for a liberated country.

Iraniangreenvoice said [fa]:

… A message to Iranian Leader, Ayatollah Alik Khamenei, “Gaddafi was killed, be scared dictator… you who place yourself in God's place, look there is nothing left of Gaddafi except two photos: one the last bloody photo, and another one with you… he [Gaddafi] also did not see his people, he killed them in the streets, considered his people insignificant and without any value… think about the bad reputation that you will leave behind.

Neoliberal writes [fa]:

History accelerates and dictators fell, one after one. We heard the news, we see the images. I hope Khamenei has seen Gaddafi's photos… Khamenei do you know Gaddafi was younger and more proud than you?… Did he consider this fate a few months ago, did he watch Saddam Hussein's execution?… I hope you [Khamenei] think about Gaddafi's fate.

Vision has published [fa] a copy of Gaddafi's photo and says, “A dictator says hello to the end.”

Khakestar has published [fa] several photos of “Gaddafi's hiding place” and wonders why dictators hide in a rat hole after committing their crimes.
