The Death of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and the Hypocrisy of the West

I was waiting to see how will end the war on Libya so to write my thoughts and opinion about it. It was more or less expected what will happen in the end.

I belong to the category of the people who is not pro or anti Gaddafi. For sure, The person we saw the last years had nothing to do with the old fanatic officer and Military leader. Gaddafi had become a shadow of his old self. A typical example of a corrupted african dictator resting in his gold, villas and swimming pools.
It is quite known since the the time of Thucydides and his "History of the Peloponnesian War" that as long as nations and countries exist, the strongest will always looks reasons to steal the wealth of the weak. Exactly the same happened in the case of Libya. USA and its armed wing named Nato , together with traitors within the country put in target the oil of Lybia.

The death of Muammar Gaddafi , his execution and the desecration of his body is one more example about the hypocrisy of what today is called "West" and its so called "justice" and "human rights" who as it seems are only for any ape criminal in the prisons of america but not for a person who ruled a country for more than 40 years.
We are not sure what exactly happened before his arrest from the so called "Freedom fighters". Now his body lies in a butcher shop so all these rats to take pictures with their cellphones. I`m not going to put the video here , google it and you`ll find it. What i`ll put here is one more video from the reaction of Hillary Clinton upon the news of his death. Her words says a lot (Notice the "we"). Its a message to all directions of whom have the control now in Libya. And let those traitors and dogs speaking about "free" elections and democracy.

Ascend To Mount Olympus - Descend In The Tombs of Vergina - Roaming To The Sanctuaries of Dion

It was about time! Since more than a decade , passing through these places but never had the chance to stay and walk there. Last week, spend a few days in Central Macedonia in Northern part of Hellas. Located more than 500 kms, North-West of Athens, The places of visit was the holy mountain of the Gods Olympus, the royal tombs of Vergina and the sancturies of Dion. All of the places had a special position in the Ancient Hellenic world. Some photos follows below.

First stop was in Olumpus. Impossible to describe with words the place and its aura.

The next day , we had to travel 100 km north to visit the Royal Tombs of Vergina. Passing through river Aliakmonas , we arrived in Vergina early noon. What you can say really if you sit in front of the bones of Phillip (The Father of Alexander the Great) his shield and the armour that burned with. Absolutely BREATHTAKING! Unfortunately it was impossible to take pics inside the tombs , it was prohibited and besides, the place inside had very few light and guards siting in every corner. The photos that follow are in the entrance and around the tombs and one while passing river Aliakmonas.

After Vergina, we took the road down to Dion. A huge place full of sactuaries and swaps. Alexander The Great was visiting this place oftenly, and also before leave to Asia he did some sacrifices there. Dion is was one of the most sacred places of Ancient Hellas. Siting under the shadow of its oaks , drinking waters from its springs and watching Olumpus from distance is something that someone can remember for a lifetime

Last evening in Olympus. The mountain getting dark and the sky deep blue. Deep dark gray clouds gathered and rain falls.
