ABSTRACT
The author reflects on what he believes as hidden war agenda of the U.S. against extremist groups in Sudan, Syria and Pakistan. He says that the shipment of arms and soldiers in the countries from the U.S. and Israel were made without diplomatic notice. He adds that neither the U.S. nor Israel has took credit for the shootings that killed civilians from January 14, 2006 to April 8, 2009. In a 2004 document, the U.S. allegedly stressed its right to attack people it perceives as terrorists in various nations despite the lack of congressional oversight.
