US airstrikes killed 15 al-Qaida militants in Yemen only one of today's important wars

US airstrikes kill 15 al-Qaida militants in Yemen: U.S. airstrikes targeting leaders from Yemen's active al-Qaida branch killed 15 suspected militants, Yemeni officials said on Tuesday. Yemeni security and military officials said missiles struck a school and a car in Abyan province in an area between Lauder and Mood where the militants were believed to be hiding. A Western official in Washington confirmed the U.S. carried out a strike against suspected leaders from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Security across Yemen, the Arab world's poorest country, has largely collapsed during the nearly year-old popular uprising against longtime autocratic President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The militants have exploited the security vacuum, stepping up operations across the weakly governed provinces while authorities focused their resources on putting down the uprising that was inspired by other Arab Spring revolts.

Yemen is today’s only one of todays important wars. To top it off Yemen is running out of water! There is more Al Qaeda there than in Afghanistan, why are we in Afghanistan and not Yemen?

Al Qaeda has always been in Yemen but it has now become Al Qaeda central. Their principle targets are Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and the US, allies and allies in this so called war on terror.

The Saudi and Yemen branches of Al Qaeda have joined forces and many outsiders are moving in to join the fight as I believe Al Shabab has done instead of being killed in Somalia. Yemen is on the verge of being a failed state as you already know. Yemen is on the Abyss and we must help them for own good! What to do? They have been dealing with terrorism and insurgencies for years! They are not a failed state but well on their way and may be tomorrow! Their attention has been on survival as a country.

As many of you know by now my prime concern in Yemen was the interference by Iran in trying to get Shiite dominance there. Bush freed Iran up to pursue her version of new middle East order by interfering wherever she could while Bush was doing the same thing with his Middle East Democratization program.

The goal now absolutely is to be the country who decides which direction the new Middle East (dis)order will take. Bush started it by attacking Iraq to get into the middle east to destabilize it and start the new middle east order the idiot said God told him to do now it will be up to Iran and Saudi Arabia at least up front fight it out whether this goes the Iranian Shiite way or the Saudi Arabian Sunni way and do not forget Israel!

In Yemen once again the Iranian Revolutionary Guard is the instigator. They are ferrying weapons through Eritrea to Yemen. They are now avoiding the Arabian Peninsula as Saudi Arabia has instituted a blockade along the coast of Yemen. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has also transported Lebanese Hezbollah fighters to fight with the rebels.

As you know, Saudi Arabia is also there fighting the Iranian backed Houthi rebels. So far there has been no direct confrontation. However I absolutely see what I have been warning about since Bush diverted from Afghanistan to attack Iraq and get back in the middle east to create a new middle east (dis)order! This is going to be total middle east war for a new middle east order like it or not, Sunni against Shiite.

It is looking like Yemen is going to be the first country down! The Middle East is right to be concerned. Yemen is going through severe domestic turmoil due to the violent activities of Al Qaeda, Houthi rebels in the north and the Southern Movement in the south. The remaining Jews are threatened with slaughter by the Shiite. How much longer can Yemen hold on? What is next?

Al Shabab in Somalia and Al Qaeda in Yemen are both reinforced by those fleeing the fight in Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Somalia is a failed State and Yemen is rapidly headed towards being a failed State. They are perfect havens for Al Qaeda to set up new training camps in lawless regions.

Yemeni Al Qaeda previously sent arms and help to Al Shabab in their fight in Somalia. Al Shabab is reciprocating sending fighters to Yemen to help Yemeni Al Qaeda. Supposedly the so called experts say the three forces operating to destabilize Yemen from the North, South, and East will not join forces but you bet they will! Al Qaeda has been leaving Iraq, Afghanistan, and Mauritania; to use Yemen as their new base we in turn better meet them there with some kind of force.

This entire so called terrorism war is barely beginning. This is not a war to end all wars but the war of all wars. Remember, this is George Bush's Forever war and there is much, much more coming. Be very concerned about what is happening in Yemen!

Mornin Jim, just was dropping by, but Yemen is a place that has seemed in trouble for year's and no one give's a shit, they dont have much that anyone want's I reckon, they also a few year's ago was trying to at least boost their own agricultural domestic need's. I looked at Afghanistan only Jim as I have said before ... the mining basically and China. There are many countries since were so "humanitarian" talking that we could help and for alot less money than we have spent on Iraq and Afghanistan, but were locked in to commitment's and wont budge with the representation we have, period.

Which bring's me to reading your back posting on Syria, because I was curious about that country seeing what is happening there. Put it like this Jim ... from what I been seeing over the last couple week's in Syria ... if there was a country that I would quickly agree to go in and help (militarily) it would be Syria, even if the President decided to take military action and war there right now, I would support him 110% ... the shit that is happening there make's Saddam's shit that Bush started a war over look like kiddie play ... and who's doing what about it?

Enough from me, have a good un Bud ...

BTW, Yep I seen the SuperBowl of course and actually thought that the Patriot's would bounce back in the last minute. That was one of the tightest game's that I seen in reent year's.

Pats did not deserve a win even if they did. You know Yemen and the Gulf of Aden being the next front it the war on terrorism "if there is such a thing anymore" is another one of my pet peeves.

They are almost out of water and can not feed themselves good guy or bad guy. We would do a lot better and gain a lot of converts if we built them a desalinization plant and helped them agriculturally.

As far as Syria goes I firmly believe that should be an Arab problem and answer.

We and Russia should stay the fuck out of out and stop supplying arms and ammunition but we will not.

With Iran and Saudi Arabia taking sides, It will erupt and we can only hope to keep it local.
