US Arms that will 'Fix' Problems in Syria
|BBC News - 14 June 2013||
Note the headline of this BBC analysis of the US decision to arm the Syrian rebels, which assumes that the US intervenes in countries to 'fix' problems - a common perception of US foreign policy in UK news. The article goes on to note that Obama's decision was 'characterised by caution'.
Once again, US intervention in other countries is not only accepted as normal, but also, through the use of such a headline to frame a discussion, perceived as a force which primarily acts only for good and peace in the world.
