This Is A Very American/Un-American War

Linked from Mother Jones, this LA Times opinion piece written by Robert Scheer argues this war is an extension of American tyranny, though when the US terrorises it's called 'liberation'.

And he's most certainly right. But it should be read as a companion piece to this one in the Guardian by Jonathon Freedland in which he makes an equally valid argument. The sub-heading reads;

What has become of American values and idealism? All swept away in this thoroughly un-American war
