  The more things change...
Remember in the 80's when the United States backed 'death squads' in El Salvador to brutally rape and murder political opposition? Wasn't that fun?

Well, hang on to your Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 'cause here we go again!

Apparently, the 'Salvador Option' is being seriously considered by the Pentagon to deal with the Iraqi insurgency. Special forces will be deployed to train these new squads, who will be composed of Shiite militiamen and Kurdish fighters. Hmmmm...exacerbating religious tensions, much?

These squads will be empowered to attack insurgents across the Syrian border, which could begin another armed conflict with the potential of further de-stabilizing the entire middle east.

Which of course begs the question: did US military planners eat paint chips as childern? And if so, were they lead based?

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
