This week on CounterSpin: The horrible images out of Syria have U.S. politicians and corporate media talking about U.S. as a matter of when, not if. Is it Iraq all over again? We'll talk with Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies.
Also on the show: Leaks of irradiated water at the Fukushima nuclear plant are far worse than previously acknowledged, and the utility says it's not sure it can stop them or even monitor them properly. But what will it take to take a technology with as many powerful friends as nuclear power off the table? We'll talk with journalist and activist Harvey Wasserman about Fukushima and the anti-nuke movement.
