    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker talks with journalist and political analyst Eric Draitser to discuss if there will there be a major new military intervention in Libya by western powers.

    As President Obama visits Germany today, he is set to meet with not only Angela Merkel, but the leaders of France, Britain and Italy to discuss ways to "stabilize" Libya. Are the lessons of the 2011 NATO bombing campaign going unlearned?

    Brazil sets up a special committee today to determine whether to go ahead with the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff. Journalist Pepe Escobar joins Becker to address whether this is simply a legal process initiated against corruption, or is a coup orchestrated by the super wealthy against the poor represented by the Workers’ Party.

    In the final segment, Becker is joined by distinguished author and historian Gerald Horne, who discusses his most recent books including "Paul Robeson: The Artist As Revolutionary" and "Confronting Black Jacobins".
