Another War For USA! American Troops Now In Cluster-Bombed-Yemen.

Wait for it… the US has now entered another war in the Middle East. Not content with only having US military involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria, the US just sent forces into Yemen.

The war in Yemen was already being waged with US weapons, including mostly-banned cluster bombs via Saudi Arabia, but now American special forces of an undisclosed number are going to participate in combat operations. The Saudis have been widely condemned for using those US weapons and other US military equipment on civilian areas and locations such as schools and hospitals.

The Pentagon says the special forces in Yemen will serve in advisory capacity, but for how long is unknown. Department of Defense spokesman Peter Cook admitted there is no exit strategy: “It’s going to be a limited period of time, but I don’t have a particular deadline.”

That sounds a lot like the open-ended special forces commitment in Iraq that recently led to a Navy SEAL getting killed in Northern Iraq. At some point, saying “special” in front of forces has to be recognized as not meaning much. US service members are fighting and dying in a war.

It would be fair to call US involvement in Yemen counter-productive, if not an outright disaster for the War on Terror. The US’ use of practically unrestricted drone warfare has led to numerous civilian casualties or “collateral damage,” when targets are misidentified or a bombing kills or wounds more than just those targeted.

The resentment and hatred created by the drone strikes has empowered the local Al Qaeda affiliate, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which has grown in strength through the violence.

If the mission in Yemen was to form a lasting alliance against terror, the US has failed completely. Whatever goodwill the US had with the people of Yemen, that wasn’t blown away in a drone strike, has been cluster-bombed by Saudi Arabia.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
