Should Governments assassinate Leaders of other Governments?


Isn't there international Law about this? But should Government backed assassinations get International Support? If North Korea tried to assassinate the leader of South Korea and failed....no big deal?

quote:

The Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, which has a long history of using techniques like exploding phones and assassins in wigs to take out Israel's enemies, tried and failed to kill Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein with a book bomb in the 1970s, according to documentary that airs in Israel Monday night.


what had Saddam done in the 70's to warrant his assassination?

quote:

The alleged attempt on Saddam Hussein's life had previously been unreported, though two subsequent alleged Mossad assassination attempts in 1992 and 1999 have been mentioned in the media.


quote:

The Mossad has a rich history of targeted assassinations, mainly against Palestinian faction leaders. In the 1970s, Israeli agents killed a member of Black September, which was responsible for the 1972 Olympics massacre, by detonating his telephone. Most recently, a hit squad made up of dozens of men and women traveling on fake passports and wearing disguises that included wigs and tennis outfits were believed to have assassinated Hamas leader Mahmoud al Mabhouh in his Dubai hotel room in 2010.


is that what we want? 196 kill teams(each country) sent to kill leaders all over the world, at any given time, and when they fail to kill the leader....nothing.

Israel is allowed to do whatever it wants, and a large segment of the American public will support the subsidization their terrorism. Questioning their activities is tantamount to anti-semitism in their eyes.


As a general rule we shouldn't participate in assassinations. There are ALWAYS exceptions though.

The United States tried the same thing with Saddam as well.
We failed. How does that make you feel?

Guess we should have used a nuke for the assassination. It's the only way to be sure.

Prior to the Church committee hearings in the early/mid seventies the CIA had a long track record of whackihng "undesirables" around the world. Africa was popular due to natural resources to be had from the continent.
