War as Politics by Other Means

About: the drone papers

War is the continuation of politics by other means.
                                                           – Carl Philipp Gottfried von Clausewitz  (1780-1831)

The Drone Papers in the about link show assassination & other droning as part of such a tactic.
#ForFurtherStudy Now that robots & drones are hard core realities they are usable for all kinds of stuff.

Syria Becomes the 7th Predominantly Muslim Country Bombed by 2009 Nobel Peace Laureate

null What happens when you give out a nobel prize before the term gets really started

The U.S. today began bombing targets inside Syria, in concert with its lovely and inspiring group of five allied regimes: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Jordan.

That means that Syria becomes the 7th predominantly Muslim country bombed by 2009 Nobel Peace Laureate Barack Obama—after Afghanistan,PakistanYemenSomaliaLibya and Iraq.

The utter lack of interest in what possible legal authority Obama has to bomb Syria is telling indeed: Empires bomb who they want, when they want, for whatever reason (indeed, recall that Obama bombed Libya even afterCongress explicitly voted against authorization to use force, and very few people seemed to mind that abject act of lawlessness; constitutional constraints are not for warriors and emperors).
