How many more theatres of war will the US participate in?
Where is the money coming from – The Federal Reserve Printing Machine?
I was yet again not surprised to see the world’s police force flexing its muscles in another corner of the globe and who asked for US involvement? Yes you guessed right, the Nobel Peace Prize President and the one that promised everyone change!
We know see much activity on the Saudi – Yemen border where Muslims are fighting their brothers and the good old US of A is there right behind them.
So what is this conflict all about that has been burning away in the background of world politics? It all about power sharing in the Middle East…..US backed Saudi Arabia versus Iranian backed Yemen. The conflict in northern Yemen began in 2004 between Sana'a and Houthi fighters but it intensified in August 2009 when the Yemeni army launched 'Operation Scorched Earth' in an attempt to crush the fighters in the northern province of Sa'ada.
One can understand regional situation developing from time to time as we have seen in the UK with Northern Ireland but surely this conflict involves only those of the Islamic Faith and should be settle by their own means. Why is the US again flexing its muscle on Islamic Soil? We see them currently assisting in putting a wedge between Israel, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon and the pay off of Egypt in its continued isolation of Gaza. On top of this we have major conflict zones still under US military operations Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and now Yemen.
Why did this President that was swept into power by people who trusted him suddenly turned his back on those that gave him the privilege of serving his people. When will this President, who received an award for peace, start earning this prestigious award and actually stop all existing US conflicts and bring the troops home.
Let’s just look into the activities that are currently taking place in Yemen. Yet again we see innocent civilians falling victim to sophisticated disproportionate power. Two days ago at least 13 civilians lost their lives in a series of air strikes by Saudi military aircraft along the border between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The Americans for their part are totally doing their own thing when one report stated that the Saudi and US air forces have further complicated the conflict by launching their own operations against Shia resistance fighters……Sound familiar?
One report said that US Special Forces have been sent to Yemen to prevent the country from turning into a "reserve base" for al-Qaeda. The move to strengthen Yemen's army comes at a time that the country's army is not fighting with al-Qaeda militants, who are based in the southern part of the country. What a wonderful foreign policy Obama has under his control. At the end of the day he’s the “Commander in Chief” and only he authorizes such actions. (Did he tuck his Nobel Peace Prize in his bottom draw whilst he made that decision?)…..oh well its back on the wall now for all to see!
Doesn’t this Al Qaeda talk really make your blood boil when we all know that the US really is not making any effort to deal with Al Qaeda (that is to say if they even exist?). They, whoever they are, are actively operating in Pakistan according to Obama and his puppet Gordon Brown has re enforced this by stating that the enemies of our country are now in Pakistan. Maybe soon we will see the US drag NATO into Yemen…..after all it only takes one Yemen based attack against a US target to bring them onboard based on their new constitution that “An attack on one is an attack on all”
So we now have US Special Forces operating inside Iran with the help of another group they support with arms and finances (the Kurdish Group PJAK), We had four American arrested in North Pakistan, dressed like Taliban, loaded with weapons but hey!....they were only tourists on a mountain trek or could they be the AQ they are all looking for but never catch?....we have the same in Somalia and now Yemen……not a problem folks……remember the Fed Reserve printing press is still in full swing!
The Saudis are currently in panic mode as they do not have the experience to deal with any overspill of Yemeni Shi’ites into Saudi territory. One must remember that Saudi is very pro US and therefore automatically becomes a target for those that do not support the presence of US Military bases on Islamic soil. It would appear that the Saudi Government is seeking the help from Jordan to provide them with elite Special Forces. Needless to say the US is right there without being asked...
