    No military presence in the Middle East and there is chaos and mass killings. Recall who said that Iraq was "stable"? FLASHBACK

    Do you genuinely not know what he said about Yemen? Four months ago, Obama called Yemen’s war on terror a success. Now the Yemeni government may fall. - The Washington Post

    This information is readily available and rather basic.

    Re: U.S. Flees Yemen

    How many US Drone Strikes made enemies for the West and Western Oil companies?

    "Radaa, Yemen - Mousid al-Taysi was travelling in a wedding convoy celebrating a cousin's marriage when a missile slammed down from the sky. All he remembers are bright red-and-orange colours, then the grisly sight of a dozen burned bodies and the cries of others wounded around him.

    Mousid survived the December 12 attack in Yemen's central al-Baydah province, apparently launched by an American drone, but his physical and psychological recovery process is just beginning. If confirmed, it would be the deadliest drone attack in the country in more than a year.

    Mousid told Al Jazeera he had no idea why his family members were blown to pieces in Radaa district. Some have suggested the convoy may have been mistaken for fighters belonging to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP"

    This is what Obama said just a few months ago.

    "This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out [the Islamic State] wherever they exist, using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground. This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years"

    It's not that Obama is just the most stupid president in US History, he is quite likely the stupidest leader of any democracy in world history. This man has blood all over his hands.
    "Flees?" LOL! That's leading a roundhouse punch, innit?

    The best action for the US and the West to take is to get the **** out of the region. Adios! Bye, bye! Let that part of the world take care of itself. Or if you are that committed, you go! And send your children or grandchildren to go. And send all the money you can to army of your choice, preferably the army in which you and your children or grandchildren will be serving. I have absolutely no doubt that if you are just itching to get some you and your loved ones can be over there killing people in no time. Walk the talk.

    ISIS has trounced Obama, the Yemenese have done it, Al Quaeda has done it, Libya has laughed at his ineptitude, and even Nehatanyu has beaten Obama's best shot.

    Now all these losses, and zero wins, is somehow a good thing? You reckon the US will not be next? Do you really think you can run and hide forever?

    I think you had better get your butt and your family's butt over there and kill people. You are wasting time in panic mode.

    Lead the way. Quit screaming for everyone else to do it for you. Get moving. Take some other Canadians with you.

    What about Western negotiations with Iran for Nuclear progress?


    If Iran delays the bomb, is the West offering to give Northern Yemen and Eastern Iraq to Iran? What is so hard about re-drawing a few lines on the World map?

    "BEIRUT: With Iran moving closer to a deal with world powers to constrain its nuclear program in return for an end to sanctions, Arab analysts and leaders are focused more on how Tehran is working unconstrained to tighten its grip on Arab states, from Iraq to Lebanon, and Syria to Yemen.

    The man behind what some see as an attempt to create a new Persian and Shiite “empire” on Arab land is Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Al-Quds brigade of the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

    Since he emerged from the shadows last autumn, Soleimani seems to be omnipresent on the battlefields of the Middle East.

    Photos of Soleimani, 60, almost an invisible man until the Sunni jihadis of ISIS overran cities in northern and central Iraq last year, are now everywhere."
