And we're marching to cambodia....

hey kids, just because you missed the fun of the parret's beak, and the excitement of the peace candidate Richard M. Nixon sending in our american boys looking for the Peace Process in Cambodia, that's all right, you can still sing along with the old folks:
In the name of protecting its forces in Afghanistan and now Iraq, the United States appears to have begun to step up a bold gamble: conducting raids in countries it believes are not doing enough to fight extremist militants.

But taking such actions in Pakistan and now Syria may involve high diplomatic risks and offer limited military gain, say experts outside the military. "It could be morally justifiable, legally justifiable, and strategically a mistake," says Michael O'Hanlon, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington.

For the past few months, there have been reports of US airstrikes inside Pakistan as violence increased in neighboring Afghanistan. Over the weekend, the US reportedly conducted a strike inside Syria's shared border with Iraq.

Syrian officials say the US sent four US helicopters across the Syrian-Iraqi border on Sunday to carry out a raid against suspected militants. Damascus claimed that the attack, reportedly carried out by US Special Forces units, resulted in the killing of eight civilians near the border town of Abu Kamal.

[ cf US crossing more borders in terror war? ]
International Law? What international law????

Clearly Peace Candidate Dubya has been given special additional majikal powers to seek peace where ever he goes.

Are you supporting peace candidate Dubya? or are you on the side of the terrorists?
