"General" Obama does 3 new airstrikes in Yemen

Another Secret War

  • Obama conducts another unconstitutional secret war in Yemen. Why? To "save" us from a nation where indoor plumbing hardly exists.  And the GOP goes along with the madness.

(Long War Journal)  -  The US military announced three previously undisclosed airstrikes that targeted al al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in southern Yemen over the past four months and killed 11 AQAP operatives.
US Central Command, or CENTCOM, issued a statement announcing four “counterterrorism strikes” in the Yemeni provinces of Hadramout and Shabwa between Feb. 3 and May 19.
The Feb. 3 strike killed six AQAP operatives in Shabwa, CENTCOM noted. This strike was previously recorded by The Long War Journal. Jihadists on social media claimed that Jalal Bala’idi, who is also known as Hamza al Zinjibari, was killed in the attack. Six AQAP fighters were initially reported killed in the strike, which CENTCOM confirmed. [See LWJ report, Senior AQAP commander reportedly killed in US drone strike in Yemen.
The second strike, in Hadramawt on Feb. 29, killed three al Qaeda operatives. The third strike, on March 30 in Azzan in Shabwa, killed three more AQAP fighters. The fourth strike, on May 19 again in Shabwa, killed four more AQAP operatives.
CENTCOM indicated that strikes against AQAP would continue as the group “remains a significant threat to the region, the United States and beyond” and is using Yemen as a base of operations for local and global attacks.
“Al Qaeda’s presence has a destabilizing effect on Yemen, and it is using the unrest in Yemen to provide a haven from which to plan future attacks against our allies as well as the US and its interests.”

Yemen: A Failed State

Yemen Could Collapse
But Would Anyone Notice?

Islamists could take over Yemen from the Islamists currently ruling Yemen.  No doubt this could be a major blow to the 21st century.
