Libyans must get on with new life

I AM concerned by the rumblings of discontent over the manner of Colonel Gaddafi's death.

Have we forgotten Christmas Day 1989, when the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was summarily executed by his own people without a word of protest from the outside world?

Both men lived by the sword and died accordingly and nothing so became them in life as the leaving of it.

Can we now allow the Libyans to get on with the new reality facing them?
