    New Era? Looks very much like another Proxy War for Oil on behalf of Saudi Arabia to me. Where Americans give up their lives for Saudi Arabian Oil, and the American Taxpayers pickup the tab.

    Yemen controls the second choke point to the Saudi Oil Supertankers entering and leaving the Red Sea.

    Iran controls the other choke point to the Saudi Oil Supertankers entering and leaving the Strait of Hormuz.

    Yemen is the poorest country in the Middle East and deserves better than for American taxpayers to bomb those people and further fan the flames of hatred towards all Americans across the world.

    When President Obama was elected he was popular among muslims. Is he still popular in the arab world? I thought that was the key to weakening Al Qaeda!

    Our government just doesn't get it. We have a President, that stayed on vacation during the terror attempt. And we now learn that National Counterterrorism Director, Michael Leiter went on vacation, a day after the attempt. Which his office was responsible for some of the failures. I was in the military, security and special investigations, and only answered to people in Washington. Believe me, some things haven't changed.

    Who cares about Yemen no one cares about Yemen. I will not support intervention in Yemen and the people of Yemen would agree with American Citizens and we agree with the people of Yemen that no US Military will be in Yemen.

    I say no. There is no reason to send troops to Yemen and besides the people and government of Yemen don't want our troops in their country. Lets just fund a anti terror police unit for Yemen. Thats it no way will we be in Yemen. You hear that Washington I oppose intervention in Yemen go and get a brain. I rather be in the French Foreign Legion then the US Army.
