JLP Posted October 27, 2008 Share Posted October 27, 2008 Hi Simonus. Yeah, I also doubt invading a new country will have a direct positive effect on McCain's campaign, but the Republicans are not after your vote or mine. Their support base is built largely on the "dangerous world" boogeyman tactic which impacts best on voters who have never actually been outside the USA. You got to admit the timing is fishy. The US has occupied Iraq for six years and suddenly now, one week before what is expected to be a close election, it launches an attack against a neighboring sovereign state. This is provocation and a local or international reaction might be spun into the "dangerous world" sell. Zowpeb ~ I don't really want to engage in an open-ended debate on "terrorism," I am interested in the particulars of this specific USA cross-border aggression against Syria.
