Maximilian Forte, Prof at University of Concordia, Montreal, challenges the notion that the NATO-fueled war in Libya is a victory for the Libyan people and lays bare the top ten myths in the war against Libya.

Robert Parry, journalist, Consortiumnews.com, hammers down on the top political pundits in the US media who created public support for the wars crimes committed by the US in the invasion of Iraq and examines the impact all this had on today.

Samara Frame, talks about the play "My Name is Rachel Corrie", the story of the heroic young woman who left the US to join the International Solidarity Movement in Gaza and was crushed to death when she stepped up to being defend a Palestinian's house from demolished by a bulldozer driven by a member of the Israeli Defense Force.
