Today on Flashpoints we return to the escalating war in Libya after it was revealed that France has been arming rebels there since April in violation of a United Nations resolution. We then talk to a captain of one of the freighters that is part of the Freedom Flotilla 2 sailing out of Athens, Greece to Israeli occupied Gaza sometime next week. Next we look at a new report that reveals the real costs of war in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Finally we update the situation on three ongoing nuclear crises in the United States and a new simulation model of radioactive dust that hit the United States following the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Japan.
