Skip to comments.Is America now becoming an international outlaw?

THE HAGUE A week has proven to be a long time in international politics. On Aug. 26, arriving in Europe, NATO military strikes on Syria seemed both inevitable and imminent to punish it for alleged chemical weapons use on Aug. 21. On Thursday, the British Parliament rejected, by a 285-272 vote, the government motion that would have paved the way for British participation. Prime Minister David Cameron said he would respect the vote. By Friday, the United States was looking decidedly lonely and exposed in its hard-line stance that military attacks were still necessary and could be launched without U.N. sanction.
When Barack Obama succeeded George W. Bush as U.S. president, the world, sick of the latters triumphalist, in-your-face unilateralism, heaved a collective sigh of relief. How ironic then that Obama risks making the U.S. the biggest international outlaw of our times.
Consider four examples. The intensified use of drones to kill foreign-based enemies has been described in a joint study by Stanford and New York University law schools two of the worlds leading law faculties as violating international law, international humanitarian law, international human rights law and possibly also U.S. law. The creation of an uber surveillance state that spies massively and routinely on millions of Americans and foreigners has stirred an angry backlash. The refusal to prosecute the torturers and their legal enablers from the Bush regime, while pursuing, prosecuting and persecuting whistleblowers of government malfeasance, shows a strange perversion of priorities in the land of the free and brave.

Those that may actually think will (I hope) understand it is obama and his administration.
I know it's popular to slam America ... but outside of the fanatic jihadi's, I want to think we're not being personally blamed.
The USA - Original Gangsta.
America, including her military, is now the primary source for implementing the New World Order. But the New World Order cannot be implemented as long as the USA is strong and sovereign. America is being destroyed.
I’m hopin’ they’ll kick us out of the un. And maybe nato. Then Les Francois can start picking up the tab. And host the new un hq in “gay” paris as well.
Political Science - Randy Newman
No one likes us-I don’t know why
We may not be perfect, but heaven knows we try
But all around, even our old friends put us down
Let’s drop the big one and see what happens
We give them money-but are they grateful?
No, they’re spiteful and they’re hateful
They don’t respect us-so let’s surprise them
We’ll drop the big one and pulverize them
Asia’s crowded and Europe’s too old
Africa is far too hot
And Canada’s too cold
And South America stole our name
Let’s drop the big one
There’ll be no one left to blame us
We’ll save Australia
Don’t wanna hurt no kangaroo
We’ll build an All American amusement park there
They got surfin’, too
Boom goes London and boom Paris
More room for you and more room for me
And every city the whole world round
Will just be another American town
Oh, how peaceful it will be
We’ll set everybody free
You’ll wear a Japanese kimono babe
And there’ll be Italian shoes for me
They all hate us anyhow
So let’s drop the big one now
Let’s drop the big one now
We will bear the punishment for that irresponsibility.
All part of the plan to deconstruct America.
Oh, fornicate you. Ramesh. You want unilateralism, look at your pal Obama. GWB jumped through all the hoops the RATs wanted and worked with a coalition. He got UN resolutions PASSED, he actually HAD participating partners, and had justification for what he did.
