US Attacks On Syria
Democracy Now explores the Bush doctrine in light of the US Military's recent assassination of a family in Syria.
Essentially as i understand it, the US Military is after a man that has been smuggling people across the Iraqi/Syrian border. This border has been the way that over a million refugees have taken to flee our war against Iraq.
US forces have been unable to apprehend this man, so they went into Syria in broad daylight, and slaughtered his family.
This is a new era in US Interventionism. To my knowledge, the US hasn't openly used murder squads since the war of genocide against American Indians.
Now the world knows that Bush will send murder squads into neutral and allied nations to slaughter whole families. If Bush can't get to the people he's after, he'll just murder innocent people to send a message. Bush has taken on the policies of drug lords, the mafioso and despots.
What a nation we have become.
This article further discusses the fact that Obama so far has supported cross border raids and there is no indication that he will not continue these policies.
