Secret Assault on Terrorism Widens on Two Continents

Mostly about the Yemen, but the first page of this New York Times article discusses the Obama administrations turn from the Bush invasive approach to a more assassination and "surgical strike" type of approach, in which there are no clearly defined rules and the Geneva Convention is completely ignored.
Since most US-military approaches nave eventually turned up in the "war on drugs" expect some of this nonsense to be deployed as strategy and tactics against organised rime in the not too distant future, if it isnt already being used in South America. Arrest? Trial? Forget it, dude...Welcome back to Dodge City!
