After 6 months of heavy bombardment by and military assistance from NATO and some Arab countries Libyan capital Tripoli fell and now is under the control of the Libyan Transitional National Council. Countries from all across the world have recognized the TNC as the only representative of the people of Libya, but the struggle is not over. Several cities are still in control of the forces loyal to colonel Ghadafi and the African Union is still refusing to recognize what has replaced one of the friendlier leaders of the African nations.

In this program Goudarz Eghtedari of the Voices of the Middle East interviews Professor Stephen Zunes, University of San Francisco, an authority in the Middle East Studies, and Mahdi Darius Nazemoroaya, a sociologist and research associate with the Center for Research on Globalization, , who has been reporting from within the country for the past 3 months on dispatch by Global Research and Pacifica.
