Hard to tell if the Libyan forces who are killing all the Gadaffi loyalists are unsophisticated regarding "international politics" or there is some sinister element at work making sure anyone who can embarrass "Western Powers" is put to death.
Keeping Gadaffi loyalists alive gives the former rebels their biggest bargaining chips with external powers.
People like Phoney Blair would be willing to bend over backwards if he thought the Libyan rebels had a number of LIVE witnesses who could implicate him in wrongdoing.
Is it unsophisticated revenge or something more sinister? What do you think?

2 Kings 10:19
Now therefore call unto me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests; let none be wanting: for I have a great sacrifice to do to Baal; whosoever shall be wanting, he shall not live. But Jehu did it in subtilty, to the intent that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal.
