Gaddafi’s last moments on this earth (it’s okay, you don’t see him shot):

 

Reminds me of Nicolae and Elena Ceaucescu’s final minutes. Here’s that clip. I’ve put the video below the jump. You can see their haughty protests that anyone would dare to treat them this way. The shooting is at 55 seconds, if you wish to click away, though you don’t see it up close.

There’s something hypnotic about seeing the last moments of dictators who have had absolute power over other human beings, and sent many to their deaths, on the verge of receiving justice themselves.
