Here's a potent blend of irony and cognitive dissonance for you. Our government has built up and rationalized its "pre-emptive" war capabilities under the Bush regime. Remember the 'Plan for a New American Century' and the "Pax Americana" bullshit?
Well here's a real honest to god opportunity to use our forces for good, with the whole world cheering us on, as the tick like dictatorship in 'Myanmar' withholds humanitarian aid from its own people, dooming tens of thousands to death.
I came across this editorial in the Asia Times--The Case for Invading Myanmar.
Possibly worth a read.
Is it possible for the Bush Cabal to actually do the right thing for once?
