    And as far as he should.
    Yemen has been a crap hole for how many decades.
    Let them kill each other, and we stay away.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    You want the Saudis to help the US with drug cartels in Mexico and South America?



    Are the drug cartels as much a threat to them as terrorism is to the US?

    Well he has enough to deal with already and can't handle that let alone much anything else. Moreover he has his own Sec of Def saying we don't have intel ops running like we use to.

    There is also that issue of us giving Selah immunity. I don't think BO wants to remind others of that.

    Here in Vancouver the police have developed a very effective way of eliminating occupations: put a fence around them, let anyone out, and no one and nothing in.


    The US, France, Canada, Britain and NATO should create a air/naval corridor around the middle east, if it flies or floats and has weapons, shoot it.

    Then let Allah sort it out.

    Russia and maybe China supporting Iran while we support the Saudis. Lots of interested parties here.

    Seems to me that's far enough, M. I don't mind sending logistical support. I'm just tired of our guys getting killed in other people's wars.

    Well, I agree with us not getting involved with this conflict.....Let the Iranians/Shia and Sunni face each other. When its done Iran will learn their military isn't anything to be feared and the Sunni will give up once Yemen has the Sunni Government in place again.

    I wonder, what we would do, if push comes to shove. Let oil go thru the roof, while the Gulf clobbers itself into indecisive oblivion.

    Well, I would go with Canada and up our own production. Remove Security off the Saud's transportation and get rid of that fee we pay for protecting what they call their precious.

    Think we can undercut them on the bids?

    hard to tell. terrorism is so low on the causes of death that it's not even on the CDC list.

    it's on this list, though :

    maybe we should reprioritize.
