Star for you! Obama does many bad things but this wasn't one of them. Sends the message if you mess with us we will get you or cause you to be gotten! Any place that treats their women as bad as they do deserves it!

yes because Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Mullah Mohhamad Omar are lying in thier coffins right now for diong such bad things...

pffft, its simple, they either werent careful enough or didnt pay somebody or whatever and they payed for it... tho nothing is confirmed except the one dead guy (the one who spoke in public the other day, i forget his name at the moment), they know for sure the most dangerous of them, AQAP leader Nassir al Wahishi got away...

Yemen is the new playground between two heavyweights of the mid east, i.e Saudi Arabia and Iran. Iran is instigating Shiite rebels in Yemen to attack Saudi territories. The Americans are the strategic allies of Saudis and hence USAF has stepped up the heat in Yemen on behalf of Saudis.

I believe this is the beginning, look for Israel and the U.S. to make a move

against Iran. Yemen will be the pivot point in getting ready to make the move

into Iran. Watch and see the pieces of the puzzle as they come together. ^Y^

"arab" heavyweights... Israel is the reigning power of the region, tho they havent any pull, they can back whatever they want with military force and be victorious. you cant rule out the turks or egyptians either...

in fact, the mideast is pretty armed, period.

Huh... Thirty... again..

This is just too much to be coincidence.
I have to believe they did tonnes of research and found that the number thirty was just short of causing an ill reaction from the public but just enough that we'd think they were accomplishing something.

It is now quite clear that Saudi Arabia, UAE, smaller sheikhdoms of Gulf, Israel and USA belong to one camp. One surprising change of camps came from Turkey, one of the formidable military powers of the region. Turkey suddenly found new proximity towards Iran, even warning Israel a few days back of "Earthquake" like reaction if Israelis used Turkish airspace to attack Iran. So, the Houthi rebels of Yemen, the Hezbollah, Turkey,Syria,Russia and China are firmly in Iranian camp. It looks like that an "Allies-Axis" setup,resembling that of world war 2, is complete in Mid east.

Another front where the heat seems to be rising daily is Pakistan. This country has seen an enormous amount of violence not just in the tribal regions bordering Afghanistan, but also in the heartland province of Punjab. This nation is increasingly being subjected to suicide bombings and sophisticated terror assaults. However, it remains to be seen as to how Pakistan fits into the Iranian-American great game in Persian Gulf.

I quote myself from one of your previous Yemen threads


Maybe the US is trying to ensure that this guy is nabbed

A radical American imam who communicated with the Fort Hood shooting suspect and called him a hero was once arrested in Yemen on suspicion of giving religious approval to militants to conduct kidnappings. Yemeni authorities are now hunting for Anwar al-Awlaki to determine whether he has al-Qaida ties.



Merry X-mas to you too Slayer

I think a lot of facts are being blurred in the MSM these days to simplify what is happening in the world theater (so it's easily digestible by the general public).

News has a funny way of mutating over a few days, weeks and months... The BBC for example posted this:

news.bbc.co.uk...

Yet they forgot earlier news reports such as this one:


As reported in:

www.foreignaffairs.com...

"in order to mobilize more than just the marginal Zaydi revivalist groups, the Houthi leadership has portrayed its position as purely defensive against acts of state oppression and attacks by the Yemeni army."

"although the Houthis are critical of the Yemeni government's siding with the United States in the "global war on terror," they should not be lumped together with terrorist groups such as al Qaeda and its affiliates, something the Yemeni government and Saudi Arabia have been trying to do since 2004. Despite their incendiary rhetoric, the Houthis have never targeted Westerners or the tiny remaining Jewish population in northern Yemen."

"Foreign money contributes to the Sa'dah governorate's war economy, which is built on the trafficking of weapons, drugs, and diesel to Saudi Arabia and the Horn of Africa. These inflows offer an additional incentive to fight, as army officers, tribal sheikhs, arms dealers, and rebels all gain a shared interest in the war."


I am not defending anyone here, I think all these places are melting pot for extremism but people need to be aware that the news is heavily distorted these days.

And more recent news:

news.antiwar.com...

So about 34 civilians killed again but it's okay, because it's a war on terrorism.

Expect the above to quietly disappear from the public view.
