I don't think so, this is great material for people like Multipoopies to rally behind the "leader". It usually works with his kind and will continue to do so as long as our educational system is the way it is. Public opinion in our country is very much driven by ignorance, fear and a disdain for thinking.

UPDATE: Syrian villager says 2 men grabbed in US raid...

SUKKARIYEH, Syria (AP) - A resident of the village that was the scene of a U.S. raid says he saw at least two men taken into custody by American forces and whisked away by helicopter.
The villager spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared for his life.

Another villager at the site displayed amateur video footage he took with his mobile phone that shows four helicopters flying toward them as villagers point to the skies in alarm.

An Associated Press journalist at the attack site in far eastern Syria on Monday saw the grainy video.

A U.S. military official in Washington confirmed Sunday that special forces had conducted the raid in Syria, targeting al-Qaida-linked foreign fighters. At least seven men died.

Bush & Co. have come out today and declared that it was one of those "pre-emptive" "we can attack your country if we think there's someone there we don't like" things. Hmm wonder where they got that idea?
"American officials said the Bush administration was determined to operate under an expansive definition of self-defense providing a rationale for strikes on militant targets in sovereign nations without those countries’ consent." http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/28/wo...t/28syria.html

If you and all your red diaper doper babies all lived next door including me....and U.S. intelligence verified that a dangerous criminal was going to launch a pre-emptive strike on 1,000's of people and he was next door... Would it be appropriate to bomb them and eliminate the threat or notify the neighbors raising suspiscion and allowing the war criminal to walk hoping that someday he will be walking out in a dessert all by his lonesome self satisfied of his revlatory acts of terrorism and realize that his journey is done and the virgins await him... So then we take them out.

If it was Osama Bin Laden....Then Hoorah---bye bye Binnnneeee! Way to go Petraius/Bush.
