Libya War: It Ain't Over Till It's Over - by Stephen Lendman

Mark Twain once called reports of his death greatly exaggerated. The same hold for Libyans, not ready to submit to NATO colonization, occupation, plunder and exploitation. Not at least without a fight.

The stakes are high - stay free or die socially, economically, politically, emotionally, and/or perhaps physically.

Washington-led NATO is a rogue killing machine plunderer. It comes, sees, slaughters, ravages, and pillages all its surveys. 

In March, it arrived in Libya on cruise missiles, bombs, shells, other munitions, fifth column infiltrators, media liars, and other rogue elements, not white horses, not as liberators nor humanitarian interveners. 

It came for another imperial trophy at the expense of free Libyans. They know it and won't submit without a fight, a long-term struggle perhaps that may ebb and flow, but won't end until NATO's scourge ends.

It's the same spirit driving Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, and millions of others throughout North Africa/Middle East/Central Asia/and elsewhere. Live free or die.

On August 22, activist Don DeBar offered hope, saying:

Most of what major media scoundrels report is untrue. Despite daily bombing and deplorable conditions across Libya, "(t)he invaders have been largely turned back. They arrived under severe aerial attacks across (Tripoli), including (bombing and) strafing civilians intended to clear streets for the invasion."

"They were supplemented (by) landing troops from NATO naval vessels" offshore. A "NATO expeditionary force" comprised "mainly of Qatari and other troops" accompanied insurgent hooligans, given license to shoot civilians on sight, as well as loot freely to create fear and chaos.

They've taken full advantage, but not without Libyans fighting back, a committed spirit across Tripoli and most other parts of Libya.

Against them is a typical NATO operation, exposing the evil it represents everywhere.

Nonetheless, as of Monday evening, temporary calm returned to most of Tripoli, except for ongoing bombing, ahead of street clashes resuming Tuesday.

In addition, loyalists showed up with two allegedly captured Gaddafi sons, after which Seif al-Islam, accompanied by huge throngs of supporters, spoke to reporters at the Rixos Hotel. Earlier, insurgents prematurely said he and his brother Mumammed were being transferred to the Hague's hanging tribunal.

Seif said his father and family were safe in the capital, and that he wished to refute media reports of his capture and detention. He also said, "Tripoli is under our control. Everyone should rest assured. All is well in Tripoli."

In fact, conditions remain in flux, but Libyans were buoyed by his message, rallying them to stand firm against NATO and thuggish insurgents.
