US Troops Are on the Ground in Yemen for al-Qaeda Offensive

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 6, 2017

Anything for Saudi Arabia and Israel.

If we are going to send troops to an already dead zone make it the Bureau of Land Management SS. Yemen is a good place for them.

A day after the US was reported to have participated in an anti al-Qaeda offensive in southern Shabwa Province of Yemen, the Pentagon is confirming that a “small number” of US ground troops have been deployed into Yemen for an ongoing operation against the al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) force.

This operation is distinct from the Saudi-led war in Yemen, which is not focused on fighting against AQAP, but the presence of US ground troops in the country at all is likely to be controversial, given the human rights disaster the US-backed Saudi conflict has turned into.
I can remember when Obama was sending just 50 troops to Iraq.

Try and find a poorer more miserable place to live than Yemen. Is there anything left to bomb? Is there any of the original civilian population left for the US to kill for SA?

There are 1000 civilians killed for every ‘terrorist’. Many of these terrorists may be just unlucky Shias that SA wants wiped off the planet.

Just like when a country is in US sights, elect the wrong person and SA will charge an expensive price. Saudi Arabia learned from the best.

You and I are likely bearing most of the cost.

Be seeing you
