Ola Tunander, PRIO: How media lies destroyed Libya


The Herland Report TV: We are honored to have produced several TV shows with former research professor at PRIO, Dr. Ola Tunander, who is an expert on Libya and How media lies destroyed Libya. Watch it here:

“There were nobody in Norway that were against the military engagement in the Parliament. This was very different from Vietnam and Iraq where you had massive protests from not only, but primarily from the left-wing.”

:Now, they succeeded to buy the whole left wing, the social democratic party and the very left wing parties, to include them in the action for a war. This is, I think, a new phenomenon,” says Dr. Ola Tunander, professor at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO, Norway) from 1987-2017.

Dr. Tunander has written and edited 12 books and a number of articles on security politics, naval strategy, submarine operations, geopolitics, dual state, psychological operations (PSYOP) and Cold War history.

We focus on How media lies destroyed Libya in a series of programs, examining the period before 2011 when Libya was Africa’s richest country, the NATO engagement in 2011 and the present terror and militia rule. The series of programs with Dr. Tunander is part of the effort to highlight the Libyan case.

How media lies destroyed Libya. The NATO Libya war in 2011 sent the country spiraling into chaos and civil war, now characterized by militia rule, sectarianism and proxy war.


Dr. Tunander says: “There are many people who believed that when you took away the “Dictator”, the people would create a democracy. That didn’t happen. Actually, the conflicts in Libya were very much tribal conflict between different groups and also, to a certain extent, religious conflicts between Islamists and other more moderate and secular forces.”

“Mustafa Abdul Jalil, who became leader of the National Transitional Council, and immediately from being Minister of Justice became the leader of the revolt. He said that they would not have any agreement with the Gaddafi regime. The regime has to be removed. Otherwise they would die.”




“I think the whole approach was very sophisticated because they knew they could not go in like they did with Iraq with forces and so on. This would not be successful. That was what Clintons special advisors said. They said that this was much more clever to have Arabs doing the job.”

“Hillary Clinton said that this operation was an aid to Arab offensive. It was something that she would like to see for the future.”



The Herland Report Scandinavian news site and TV channel on YouTube has millions of readers/viewers yearly, featuring leading free thinkers, intellectuals, authors and activists on foreign policy, Western cultural decay, religion, values and the need for international justice and respect for national sovereignty. 

The Herland Report believes in freedom of speech and its editorial policy resides above the traditional Left vs Right paradigm which we believe has lost its relevance and ability to describe the current driving forces in Western politics.

We regularly feature a variety of opinion and analysis from a number of commentators from across the political spectrum.

The Herland Report is founded and hosted by Hanne Nabintu Herland, a Scandinavian historian of comparative religions, bestselling author, commentator and TV producer, known from the media for sharp analysis and fearless speech.

She was born and raised in Africa, has lived in South America and currently in the Middle East, and traveled extensively in Asia.
