Noxious numbers: Sixes against sovereignty

60,000

The number of U.S. Special Operation forces by the end of the decade, according to the think tank Washington Institute of Near East Policy. The forces — Army Rangers, Navy Seals, etc. — are often thought of as the best solution for terrorism.

60

The number of countries where the special forces are currently conducting missions. Those nations include Syria and Pakistan, where the U.S. is currently violating their sovereignty, too.

The Nation magazine questioned it as, “The End of International Law?”

Appears so, but not exactly news? The U.S. went into Iraq without consent and are currently trying to get around Iraqi jurisdiction over U.S. soldiers.

Proud to be an American? Afraid not. I bet there are some noecons out there that would consider my views on this as treason — all in the name of the “War on Terror!”
