Yemen Declares Open War with Al-qaeda


www.yobserver.com

The Yemeni government has declared an open war against al-Qaeda, which has been increasingly growing since January 2009 when the Yemeni branch merged with the Saudi branch to form the so-called al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)

Two al-Qaeda operatives at least were killed and three injured on Monday January 4th, when anti-terror Yemeni forces clashed with an Al-Qaeda cell in Arhab area, about 40-50 km east of the capital Sana'a.

Hmmm. Well at least the Yemeni people see Alqaeda for what they are...a small group of terrorists whose members have been scattered to the wind.
Yemen is one of the most impoverished nations in the world. Alqaeda is attemtping to take advantage of that, which will destabalize their nation.
Personally I'm not worried about an Alqaeda threat in North America. Jihad is a state of mind and knows no particular borders, so we need to help Yemen however they ask, and bring all our troops home.

Also, notice that they seem to have caught those responsible for the threat against the embassies as well.

Yemen angered by al-Shabab threat

Yemen has said it will not tolerate foreign fighters on its soil, following a pledge by Somalia's al-Shabab group that it would send fighters to help an al-Qaeda affiliate in the country.


It would have been wiser for those who promise to export terrorism to work towards stability in their own war-ridden state."



Yemen promises more operations against al Qaeda militants

Tribesmen from Mareb, east of Yemen, warned al-Qaeda operatives to immediately leave their province, otherwise they will be struck like their comrades in Arhab, Abyan and Shabwah.



Yemen against dark forces

The dark forces have joined with one aim: tearing up the unity of Yemen. Al-Qaeda and al-Houthi rebels have complimentary ideologies. Both of them intersect with the separatists in the south, enforcing the sectarian discourse, serving foreign agendas, and aim at destroying Yemen's stability and security

It is my opinion that about half of terrorism attributed to Alqaeda is actually alqaeda. This is one of those times.
Now the question is, do we care?

It is my belief, and has been for awhile, that forces will not officially deploy in Yemen. They are very weary of ANY international entity operating within their lands. They seem to see Alqaeda as a threat, so why not help the people of Yemen?
While troops may not be welcome, training, expertise, and weapons will. This way, the allies don't get the hatred that comes from "invasion", as Yemeni forces are working towards the same goal.
