The imperialist geopolitical agenda for Libya supported by U.N. intervention and “NATO Rebels,” include destruction so extreme, many Libyan have become refugees attempting to flee while the U.N. humanitarian coordinator warned of critical shortages of drinking water, food, fuel, and medicine; World Health Organization (WHO) ensured vaccines and other medical supplies for all Libyans with €100 million ($142 million) released by the U.N. sanctions committee; and WHO with Libyan authorities are prioritizing items for the nation according to the UN News Center Friday, but human rights defender, journalist Don DeBar told the Examiner late Saturday that Libyans are regaining their nation amid the ongoing psychological operation.
“The war is far from over,” DeBar told Dupré in an exclusive Skype interview Saturday, soon after he had received direct communications from Libya.
Abuses abound since NATO-led rebel attacks began
“Our lives are under threat here,” Pastor Anthony Ojieseri, 32, a Nigerian said with sad eyes as he led an open air Church service in one of many of the nation’s makeshift refugee camps according to The Telegraph on Saturday. “Rather than staying here I would rather risk my life at sea in one of these old boats with a chance of getting out.”
Ignoring U.N.’s warning that it is illegal to assassinate Colonel Muammar Gadhaffi, “NATO Rebels’,” (as the NATO backed rebels are called in Libya) ultimatum for his surrender continues.
“Their crime? None. The only way NATO terrorists can take the town is if they kill everyone.”
According to Pravda, Gadhaffi’s hometown is under siege from NATO with so far in the 4 days plus campaign, “over 1,400 civilians have been killed.”
“A thousand people alone were killed in a bombing by NATO aircraft during the prayer of Eid al-Fitr on this Tuesday morning (31st).”
“The believers were killed by 12 rockets within a few minutes,” reported Pravda, furthering, “NATO has not cared the least that this has been Ramadan for Muslim believers.”

After the U.N. helping prompt the insurrection, the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for Gadhaffi’s arrest, and the NATO security force offered a 1M pounds cash bounty dead or alive for the Colonel, Panos Moumtzis, Libya’s U.N. humanitarian coordinator announced Friday while many Libyans attempt fleeing NATO bombs, rapes and other human rights abuses, that the U.N. has taken 11 million bottles of water and will take 600 metric tons of food and 100 million euros worth of medicine to Libya.

“This country has a lot of resources and we view the humanitarian needs as short-term,” he said.
The humanitarian crisis will last as long as NATO continues to destroy the once thriving nation, according to independent journalists, a situation neighboring countries are also battling.
Italy and southern France, burdened with the Libyan refugee crisis, have established checkpoints at their common border where Libyans, many of whom are youth now without parents, are being pulled from the lines, observed by Dupré this spring. As the Telegraph highlighted Saturday, the real victims are Libyan families and young men who end up in Zanzour.
“They know they are risking their lives by going to sea – two hundred died in one sinking alone in 2009 off Libya – but the prospect of life in Europe is a tantalising one.”
Most of those stuck in the port had held good jobs in Libya that was thriving until the NATO-led “rebel uprising” in February. “Many interviewed by The Sunday Telegraph lost all their possessions in the fighting, and, in some cases, family members.”
Not all Libyans, however, are fleeing. Many are organized to defend their nation against the NATO invasion. Furthermore, they are experiencing victories according to DeBar, as reporter Lizzie Phelan in Libya until recently escaping, had explained was being planned and was possible.
Libyans understand what too few Americans do: Deep geopolitical agenda to occupy its nation under guise of “Libyan rebellion”
Recently reporting from Libya and now in New York, WBAIX radio host, journalist Don DeBar asserts what numerous other independent journalists are reporting, including those recently targeted for killing in Libya. These reporters concur that, as a matter of upholding human rights of Libyans and Americans, the geopolitical agenda driving the “NATO rebel” war on Libyans needs to be recognized.
“The first and foremost fundamental geopolitical consideration is that the US and EU are determined to take direct control of Africa’s resources,” DeBar said Friday. Among those resources are its oil, one among many aspects of which mainstream media continues failing to report, thus painting Gadhaffi as worthy of U.S. “targeted killing.” Unlike the U.S. government leadership, Gadhaffi ensured that Libyans reap personal benefit from their nation’s oil in the form of monthly stipends, in the thousands of dollars, according to DeBar.
Top deep geopolitical analyst Ian Crane plus other seasoned independent journalists including DeBar are increasingly reporting what is so contrary to mainstream media reports, that subsequently, the Libyan war has been been called a “media war,” propaganda against best interest of human rights of Libyans and Americans.
U.S. media, including many “alternative news” sources have not aired the massive Libyan protests to what locals call the “NATO Rebels,” as highlighted by DeBar recently. (Watch “1Million+ Libyan Civilians Protest Against NATO And Its Rebels Attacks 01 07 11 (1) In Libya,”)
DeBar told Press TV that truth about the invasion of Libya, facts, have “not made the media in the west at all – including on programs like Democracy Now! and Al Jazeera which is carried on progressive radio networks.”
In the article, “Hillary Clinton mocked: Gadhaffi Goodwill glamour daughter,” this writer highlighted the woman slated to some day replace Col. Gadhaffi, his glamorous lawyer daughter and Goodwill Ambassador, Aisha Gadhaffi is battling against AIDS and violence against women plus her personal battle of losing her infant daughter killed in US led bombing. Aisha Gadhaffi is hailed as a major present leader in the Libyan’s struggle against NATO forces, as seen in Tripoli on April 14, and documented in “Aisha Gaddafi visiting Bab El Aziziz in Tripoli, Libya 14 Apr 2011, Youtube,”
Professor Michel Chossudovsky stated on March 9 that the “U.S. led military operation in Libya,” referred by mainstream media sources as the “Libyan rebellion,” “was planned to coincide with the protest movement in neighbouring Arab countries.”
“Public opinion was led to believe that the protest movement had spread spontaneously from Tunisia and Egypt to Libya,” he reported. (See: “UN nixes NATO Rebels killing Gaddafi, No vampires’ blood for oil, Dupré, D., Examiner,” August 28, 2011)
Following her historic Libyan Fact-Finding Mission leadership in June this year, former U.S. Congresswoman and former Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney is now on tour, explaining to audiences in cities across America that mainstream media is reporting propaganda about Libya. One example is that Gadhaffi forces fired on “peaceful protesters” was “a lie manufactured by mainstream media as a pretext for war.”
According to McKinney, those “peaceful protesters” were financed and armed by NATO and Israeli Special Forces to foment unrest designed to topple Gadhaffi’s 41-year regime.
McKinney was in Libya at the 2011 Pan African Conference for Africans, when the “NATO Rebel” unrest began.
Author of numerous books and political scientist Dr. Michael Parenti, based in Berkeley, California, recently said on Russia Today that the U.N. initiative of “protecting civilians” was just a “pretext for NATO to step into Libya, topple Gadhaffi, and redirect the country’s economy.”
“In fact, the same thing happened in Yugoslavia and in Eastern Europe,” he said, furthering:
“There will be a massive privatization taking place, the public economy that the Gadhaffi government had built over 40 years, which included public subsidies for housing, for education, for healthcare – all those things will be privatized. The oil fields will be handed over to private companies for private profit.” (Russia Today)
DeBar on Friday said not one person has stopped the US and EU from Libyan resources as much as Gadhaffi.
“Libya was – and, thus far, remains – the single largest impediment to this effort, with Gadhaffi personally being the single human being who is the largest obstacle to imperial designs on Africa,” he said.
Most independent journalists agree that the intervention in Libya has not been humanitarian.
According to PravdaRU on September 1, approximately 1000 Libyans were killed in the bombing by NATO aircraft during the prayer of Eid al-Fitr Tuesday morning, August 31st, a “massacre, a genocide, a razing of a town to the ground.”
“Their crime? None. The only way NATO terrorists can take the town is if they kill everyone.”
Under the guise of “humanitarianism,” NATO rebels continued bombing the Colonel’s birthplace, Sirte, east of Tripoli, assaulting Libyans that respected scholars, insiders and geopolitical analysts say is not as mainstream media is portraying, but instead, a battle for the nation’s resources.
According to DeBar, understanding the invasion of Libya requires knowing the fact that one of Gadhaffi’s first acts “after deposing the western puppet King Idris,” was evicting the U.S. from its military base on the continent.
That feat was one in which nations globally have been unable to achieve in the vast U.S. planetary empire network of over 737 bases spread throughout every continent bar Antarctica, with over 2500000 U.S. personnel serving it. Government secrecy has kept most Americans “ignorant of the fact that our garrisons encircle the planet,” wrote Chalmers Johnson for Tom Dispatch.
The eviction of the U.S. military base four years ago, says DeBar, left the U.S. having to move its base for its AFRICOM force, established in October, 2008, to Stuttgart, Germany, “laying bare the nature of this ‘alliance.'”
Hundreds of millions of dollars monthly are at stake in Telecom companies, dollars that had been staying in Africa. In other words, Libya is a major asset to Africa in that if “stabilized,” is highly profitable for the taker reported DeBar in a BS News interview Friday.
“Libya has heavily invested in African infrastructure, such as Telecom system construction, an African satellite, and other communications projects,” he said.
“The revenue, which now stays in Africa – hundreds of millions of dollars a month – comes directly out of the pockets of US, EU and other global Telecom companies, a trend that is in exactly the opposite direction sought by US/EU power elites.”
“Even more to the point is that Gadhaffi has been pushing for – and funding the enabling of – an independent and united African economic entity that could rival the EU and other global economic powers,” said DeBar.
“Among the tasks underway at the time of the invasion was the creation of an African sovereign bank and an African currency printed in Africa under African control. This would wrest control over African resources from the French and others whose power to print African currency translates into economic and, ultimately, political control.
Many justifying NATO’s act of aggression by calling Gadhaffi a “dictator,” Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey wrote in Pravada on the 31st that Gadhaffi was to receive a humanitarian prize in March.
“He was the one to speak out against the more conservative practices in Islam, who spoke out against the killing of homosexuals or the stoning of women. The Jamahiriya system is the antithesis of a dictatorship. What dictator educates his people and pays for them to study abroad?”
“Libya’s literacy rate improved from ten per cent to ninety per cent under “Gaddafi” and under his guidance the country rose from the poorest in the world to the richest in Africa. Those who understand anything about geopolitical events know that this is an amazing achievement, in itself, within four decades.”
Of extreme importance, according to DeBar, is understanding that since 1969, Libyan government has offered an economic and political model to Africans and others suffering colonial control that stands in stark contrast to the models of such as Nigeria and South Africa.
“The country’s natural wealth has been directly applied to the economic needs of the population, resulting:
- Every Libyan owns their home – without mortgage encumbrance or rent or property tax burdens;
- A first-rate health care system was built and operated that is free and available to all;
- A first-rate education system was built and operated through the post-graduate level that is free and available to all;
- Oil revenues are distributed to the people in the form of a monthly stipend in the thousands of dollars; and
- Public infrastructure – such as roads, water systems, electricity, etc., were constructed and operated efficiently and made available to all.”
This economic and political model since NATO’s invasion, has been reduced to one in which international aid workers have descended with missions to assess and provide assistance in restoring water supply in Tripoli and surrounding areas, look into protecting civilians and assess the food situation, according to U.N. News.
“The [aid] team includes officials from the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Food Programme (WFP), the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).”
Whereas food was no problem for Libyans before the NATO invasion and supplying the Rebels with weapons, now WFP has needed to dispatch some 600 metric tons of food to Tripoli for distribution by the Libyan Red Crescent to over 35,500 conflict-affected and displaced people for one month.
At the request of the NTC, WFP is also procuring 250,000 tons of fuel for life-saving humanitarian work for one month, according to OCHA.
According to DeBar, the threat that is being imposed on the Libyans is twofold:
“1. A plan to democratize control of Africa’s wealth, and
“2. A successful example of doing this in Libya, demonstrating that it is possible and offering a ‘how-to’ model to the people of the entire continent – a serious threat to colonial ambition that is perhaps unmatched in the world at present.”
The U.N. human rights office warned the U.S. last week, before the NATO slaughter of some 1000 Libyans in Sirte, that executing Moammar Gadhaffi without trial would be illegal.
Part of the U.S. media campaign against Libyans and for its resources has been to rouse a sense of NATO victory over Libya.
In a Skype message on Saturday, DeBar told Dupré “the reason the U.N. and others are looking for excuses (e.g., ‘aid,’ ‘protection of mustard gas stockpiles from terrorists,’ and ‘extending’ the ‘deadline’ etc.) is that the ‘NATO Rebels’ are not winning.
“I was told today by someone on the ground in Tripoli that the government has re-established many checkpoints in Tripoli, and a map I saw yesterday of respective govt/’rebel’ holdings gave government approximately 70% of the cities,” DeBar reported to Dupré.
“I don’t assume that the Libyans will lose. The push behind western propaganda is to have people think it’s over. It’s definitely NOT over.”
