US quietly widened terror war to Yemen

Citing an unnamed former top CIA official, the newspaper said that a year ago the Central Intelligence Agency sent many field operatives with counterterrorism experience to the country.

At the same time, some of the most secretive special operations commandos have begun training Yemeni security forces in counterterrorism tactics, the report said.

The Pentagon will be spending more than 70 million dollars over the next 18 months, and using teams of special forces, to train and equip Yemeni

I remember from back when the war started it was being said you will able to find more terrorists in Yemeni then almost any where else in the region. So I am a little surprised that there report is saying this only started about a year ago. It also says that the Yemeni forces are being trained, so if that is correct then perhaps Yemeni will take an active role in trying to flush out its own terrorists.

Hear is a new comment that I found on this.

"Somebody in our government said to me in Sana’a, the capital of Yemen, Iraq was yesterday’s war," Lieberman explained. "Afghanistan is today’s war. If we don’t act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow’s war. That’s the danger we face

We'll be in Yemen, full military operation, by mid 2010.

The civil war is intensifying rapidly. Neighbour British and Americans soldiers in Oman and Saudi Arabia will be asked - by both respected governments - to intervene.

I'm leaning towards infinite's view here.

Once the CIA and other alphabet agencies have managed to stir up and fund enough hatred We'll be called in.

Predators have been smoking pick-up trucks in Yemen for years. US anti-terror operations have been going on in Yemen since the USS Cole bombing. This isn't anything new.

WE might as well build a base there also for WW3. That way we can strike everywhere, not like we cant would just make it easier to take over the world.

check out the maps halfway down the page.
the government can say what they wish about their intentions,that doesn't change the facts of deployment.

Well , since the troops and machinery is there , I guess the US could kill another million or so,

Of course they only would do it for the good of Yemen citizens.

I heard the Military taught the people of Iraq to bake Apple Pie,

The few who weren't killed of course

You know it's funny the civil war there is mainly due to the the Yemeni president being seen as too closely tied to the US. After initially turning their backs to the USA in teh early 90's, they learned their lesson.
Essentially Alquada was expelled in the mid 00's, so American and coalition interests moved to new battelgrounds, following Yemeni and Saudi Alquada who were doing the same.
Unfortunately, as usual, the cooperative country was left in tatters. The government was left dealing with a conservative faction, the houthi, as well as the southern seperatists. Add that to Yemen being labelled unworthy of USAID in 2004, after helping quash alquada in the region, one can only wonder at the short-sightedness and repetitive nature of US foreign policy.
TBH, Yemen is a great example of why ifrastructure must be established once an enemy is expelled from a region.
