Bi-partisan Bush doctine: Congress passes "Syria Accountability Act": analysis by S.Zunes: "What is noteworthy about the vote, however, is that a careful reading of the bill reveals a rather frightening consensus in support of the Bush administration's unilateralist worldview... The answer may lie in today's unipolar world system where the US, rather than supporting comprehensive and law-based means of promoting regional peace and security, insists on the right to impose unilateral demands targeted at specific countries based largely on ideological criteria. As the one-sidedness of the vote on this resolution indicates, both the Republicans and the Democrats - including the most liberal wing of the party - now accept this vision of US foreign policy."
