Taking Apart the Empire's Case on Syria
Phil Taylor introduces the program by expressing what is wrong with the Anglosphere's approach towards Syria: everything has turned into a cowboy movie.
Prolific commentator Stephen Gowans takes apart NATO's case on Syria's WMD. Syria is being asked to prove a negative. Gowans investigates the legality of chemical weapons' use, and asks why we accept a narrative that says some weapons are bad, and other highly destructive weapons are ok.

Class and Elections in Zimbabwe
Stephen Gowans has analysed the recent elections in Zimbabwe. We in the West look at Zimbabwe through the prism of our own experience. In our elections, we select from a group of parties that fundamentally agree on how power is divided. The modest differences between our political parties help establish the parameters of political discussion.
In Zimbabwe, the two major parties represent different class interests. The country cannot alternate between the two without experiencing substantial changes in political economy. The elections in Zimbabwe, therefore, are far more contested, and involve social movements.
ZANU-PF is tied to the fabric of post-British rule in Zimbabwe, and remains committed to its original mission.
