Moral dilemma #6

Col Muammar Gaddafi has vowed to “cleanse Libya house by house” until he has crushed the insurrection seeking to sweep him from power. In a televised diatribe lasting over an hour, he has threatened death sentences against anyone who challenges his authority. He has declared that he is prepared to “die as a martyr”.

You find yourself in a building in Tripoli. Col Gaddafi is snoozing in a chair in a corner of the room. There’s a loaded gun on a table in front of you. There’s no one else within earshot. Do you shoot him?

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
