US attacks Syria


Syria condemns US raid as 'outrageous' - BBC
Syria accused the United States of committing an "outrageous crime" in killing eight civilians during a helicopter attack on a Syrian farm near the border with Iraq. Syria has said four US helicopters assaulted the al-Sukkari farm in the Bou Kamal area in eastern Syria on Sunday and that US soldiers stormed a building in the area. The United States, which accuses Syria of failing to stem the flow of al Qaeda fighters and other insurgents crossing into Iraq, has neither confirmed nor denied the incident. "This is an outrageous crime and an act of aggression, of course," Syria's press attache at its embassy in London, Jihad Makdissi, told the BBC. "If they (the United States) have any proof of any insurgency, instead of applying the law of the jungle and penetrating, unprovoked, a sovereign country, they should come to the Syrians first and share this information," Makdissi said.

I hate to be a stickler for these things, but isn't invading someone else's airspace and putting soldiers on the ground an invasion? Hasn't the US just attacked another country by invading them? We don't put up with other countries behaving like this, but seem very quiet when the US does it. I wonder if it was 'military intelligence' that gave them the justification to attack?

Yes, what the fuck happened to things like territorial integrity. Isn't that like the most basic rule when it comes to international relations?

It's the USA. According to our sychophantic "leaders", they seem to be able to do what they like. No western leader dares to raise their voice and say "No! This is wrong" - they are too busy sucking up to the scumbags!
Pakistan wants to sort out the Taliban in their country, their way, by talking, but,no, the USA races over there to tell them what they will do, or else!
Something is seriously screwed up here.....

Yeah, with our own elections, the impending US elections and that little matter of the worst financial crisis in history, you think they would be interupting all TV and radio with the amazing breaking news that: "there has been some fighting in the Middle East, no one is believed to have been killed". Front page stuff that is.
