Operation Breakfast Redux: Could Pakistan 2010 Go the Way of Cambodia 1969?

Pratap Chatterjee, TomDispatch.com: "Sitting in air-conditioned comfort, cans of Coke and 7-Up within reach as they watched their screens, the ground controllers gave the order to strike under the cover of darkness. There had been no declaration of war. No advance warning, nothing, in fact, that would have alerted the 'enemy' to the sudden, unprecedented bombing raids. The secret computer-guided strikes were authorized by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, just weeks after a new American president entered the Oval Office."
