The 'Masters Of War' is at it again.
U.S. military helicopters launched an attack on Syrian territory close to the border with , killing eight people.A U.S. military official said the raid targeted the network of al-Qaida-linked foreign fighters moving through Syria into Iraq.
"I don't think that witchcraft is a religion. I wish the military would rethink this decision."
"God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them."
"Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists."
"This crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while."
Would few and scattered bombings here and there on a neighbouring country stop the flow of foreign fighters into Iraq.Wouldn't policing the border and tighter border control makes more sense than bombing other sovereign nation and killing innocent lives.It goes to show the arrogance and total disregard of innocent human lives by the US Administration under the moronic George Bush, a man whose total lack of knowledge of the outside world outside America had made him quixotic and a menace to the world.He sees enemies,mostly imagined, in every Arab and Muslim nations after 9/11.His foreign policy is all about flexing muscles and gunboat diplomacy.If those options were not used than economic sanctions would be the tool of choice which the moron in the 'White House' knew very well would make the ordinary people suffered the most.The leaders of the country concerned would not suffer because with power they have access to money and other luxuries.Is America a true democracy or a fascist military regime?
The ways it goes about with its foreign policies there is little doubt that it is definitely practising double standards when dealing with other countries especially non- Occidental countries.Even worse if they are Muslims nations.
It has pointed its guns at North Korea and Iran under the pretext of trying to stop nuclear proliferation.These are small nations with inadequate military capability which it deems fit to bully.Would it dares to point it guns at the bigger power like China or Russia ?
The Korean nuclear standoff has become a high-stakes game, where the threats are potentially more dangerous than those posed by Iraq and now Iran.It is suspected to have at least one or more nuclear weapon, an extensive chemical weapons stockpile and a biological arsenal.A full scale military or nuclear strike by North Korea would be devastating to American troops in Japan and South Korean , which is the US main concern.It wouldn't care less what would happen to the population of these two countries as long as American interests are protected.It has recently toned down its military harangue against North Korea.
Like North Korea it has taken issue with Iran on its nuclear programme.The American suspected that Iran is technically capable of producing enough HEU(highly enriched uranium) toward the making of nuclear bombs.Iran has refuted the claim and said its nuclear programme are for peaceful purposes.An IAEA inspections have shown that Iran have not produced sufficient HEU for military purposes. Another IAEA report stated "there is no evidence that the previously undeclared nuclear material and activities ... were related to a nuclear weapons programme."
Iran has claimed that the military threat posed by Israel and the United States is forcing it to restrict the release of information on its nuclear programme.
Unconvinced, the US pressured the UN Security Council to pass sanctions against Iran.On 31 July 2006 the Security Council passed a resolution demanding Iran suspend its enrichment program.On 23 December 2006, the UN Security Council imposed sanctions against Iran for refusal to stop its uranium enrichment programme.
The recent unprovoked strike against Syria is to send a warning to Iran that it would face serious military action if it continues with its nuclear programme.
There is a 50/50 chance that the US will, directly or through its ally and proxy in the Middle East, Israel mount air strikes against Iran in the next few months.The military action would mainly be confined to aerial bombings of military installations but with tragic results on human lives.
