1982 Libya had a different feeling than the current world, but its memories shape a view of the current situation.

Is Libya A Litmus Test For The Arab World?

The debate over Libya does not break down along ideological lines. Linda Wertheimer talks to two liberals who disagree over whether the U.S. should be intervening in Libya. Phyllis Bennis, the director of the New Internationalism Program at the Institute for Policy Studies, opposes the allied military action.

Jim Lehrer discusses the arms issue with the Institute for Policy Studies' Emira Woods and Mansour El-Kikhia of the University of Texas at San Antonio.
