Opening up the Yemeni front in the war on al-Qaeda

Yemen has been scrutinized since it was revealed that alleged plane bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab trained with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility for the failed Christmas Day bombing, and Yemeni security forces raided an al-Qaeda hideout today.

And last week, U.S.-supported missile strikes may have killed American-born imam Anwar al-Awlaki, who purportedly has links to Abdulmutallab, as well as to accused Ft. Hood shooter, Nidal Hasan.

For more, Martin Savidge speaks with Anthony Cordesman, military analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

Should the U.S. take additional steps to expand the war against al-Qaeda in Yemen?

TERRORISM…is the effect of years & years of HATE
weather it be at mosque’s by Imam’s or medrasa’s .
Hate of the west is coming full circle it is preached [brainwashing]. To propagate more followers they use religion as a cover to put forth agenda of terror & chaos to target innocent
people as a just cause for their missdeeds ! .
SEEDS OF HATE ARE SPREADING …OTHER MUSLIM’S REFORMISTS VOICES NEED TO SPEAK-UP…Cause It will effect us .. ALL in the end ? !!!

Stop,and Think,…take a deep breath,and go back to “911” for a second,and realize that,…what we have learned from the “911 Commission Report”. It was a renegade handfull of fanatics festering in the no-man land of Afghanistan,period! But what does Bush #43 do,… follows Big Daddy Bush #41 doctrine,… that the problems of the entire Muslim/Islam World are holed-up in Iraq. The United States launches a two-front war,so to say,but the truth is that 90% of America’s might went into fighting the mighty Iraqi(to rid the world of mass destruction weapons?) Government,with near zero for the real(culprit) perpetrator Usama ben-Laden (al Qaeda’s approx.500-1,000 terrorist guerilla fighters)thus letting,…or allowing him to escape,nice? What did America(Saddam,and the Sunni controlled Iraqi State loathed,and hated al Qaeda)do,but obliterate an innocent country,…inflaming,and emboldening the entire Islamic World against the west! Ah yes,…”America’s War(Lockheed Martin;Boeing;Northrup Grumman;Raytheon;General Dynamic’s;General Electric;Blackwater/Xe;Becktel;Halliburtin;Flour;etc.,etc.) Lord’s” love it,as does the “Afghan War Lord’s”,…all loyal profiteer’s? Finally,what we have is a new brand of insurgents evolving,…a hy-brid so to say called “TaliQaedaism”,made-up of…1.5 Billion Islamic followers that hated what the radicals stood for,but now see that they are all being painted with the same brush by the west! After Yemen where next with this mutating war on terror?

The United States prevented Dutch authorities from installing full body scanners before the suspected Christmas Day bomb plotter passed through security at Amsterdam’s airport, the Dutch government claimed today.

The Dutch claimed that they had been trying to install the machines for flights to the US since 2008 but had been blocked by US officials who wanted passengers to all destinations screened.

In light of the failed attack all passengers travelling from Holland to the US will now have to go through full body scanners the Dutch Interior Minister announced following discussions with the Americans.

#44

US has already put both its feet in Iraq and Afganistan-Pakistan region. And now in yemen? Where is the third foot it has got to do so?

#43

The only way to bring stability is to offer stability.

Provide ways and means for the people to improve their lives, and those of their families.

#42

Mr.Todd Boyle I totally disagree with your views.
People such as (Former Vice President Dick Cheney,Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu,and Prime Minister Stephen Harper have the willpower and courage to defeat this enemy.And Todd,crimes of a few. Think again.

#41

no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#40

I think the powers that be had best give Yemen some serious thought. We can’t handle what we have now. Our military is overextended as it is, when the —- hits the fan in this country, and it’s going to, we will be pulling troops back by the plane load. The biggest mistake the administration makes is believing that they have the upper hand on terror.The recent past, 9-11, the latest “shorts” incident and the fact that a terrorist walked into a building on one of our bases and killed 8 people today, might make them want to rethink just how safe this country actually is. We don’t think like they do, we value life, they don’t. They are as determined to inflict more harm on this country as we are to stop them. Taliban, Hamas, al Qaeda, call them what they want, there are factions scattered around the world, all with one intent — to kill as many of us as they can by whatever means they can devise.I follow what is happening in the Middle East on a daily basis. This government is not going to convince me that I am safe from a terrorist attack. That is not true and they know it better than any of us!!!!

#39

Of course not. But don’t underestimate the level of ignorance-in-action that comprises American foreign policy…. I fear for the United States, in view of it’s current global strategy. I hope for at least the hint of an awakening to appear, but will forego holding my breath.

#38

The war on terrorism cannot be won with military alone. (1) The U.N. needs to make terrorism an international crime. Then money and individuals can be legally seized world wide. Think bounty hunters. Arms cost money. Force banks to freeze terrorists money world wide. (2) Mount and maintain a world wide anti-terrorist propaganda campaign. For example:
==================================================
Tell everyone everywhere everyday:

If the god you worship TELLS YOU TO KILL anyone for any reason, you are worshipping a god OF EVIL not a god OF GOOD.
==================================================
When EVERYONE in the world has heard this repeated EVERYDAY FOR YEARS, the religious justification for terrorism will be severely undermined even to the most uneducated or brainwashed.

#37

NO. the us should not open a front in Yemen. the us is stretched enough and this is an unwinnable war.

#36

No, absolutely not. Yemen is a poor country already wracked by two different civil wars. The US needs to leave Yemen alone. Expanding the “war on terror” is a bad, bad, bad idea. We need to bring the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan and stop the killing.

#35

Dont worry about facts They just get in the way of excusses for US Administration bombing raids and invasions. After all, you only have to look at the March 20 2003 attack on Iraq. Where are the supposed Iraqi weapons of Mass Destruction?

#34

Now it appears that the Detroit bound Airline Terrorist Suspect from Nigeria has supposed links to Yemen. Or at least the suspect is supposedly saying his bomb was made in Yemen.

Well just when America needs a good excuse to attack Yemen, conveniently we have one. Now never mind that we have initiated the US and Saudi attacks before this recent terror attempt. Just keep in mind that the Nigerian is a Yemeni terrorist.

Some are beginning to question how a No Fly list that bans Cat Stevens and a guy that was writing a critical book on the CIA could miss this ‘Nigerian/Yemeni’ terrorist. Reports are that the terror suspect was on a Watch List and his dad reported to the US Embassy in Nigeria that his son (the future terrorist) was possibly dangerous.

How convenient.

#33

The war profiteers need to open shop somewhere since Afghanistan, the country where empires go to die, is going to be winding down. Yeah, that’s the ticket, get on over to little Yeman so the U.S. can get this mess of a soap opera going. War is truly Menstruation Envy…

#32

Not until peacemaking is as lucrative as war-making will we “win.” The only reason the US and Israel can kill civilians en masse and not be considered “terrorists” is that states write the definition of “terrorism” thereby excluding their own actions. Meanwhile, Israeli and US firms (and gov’t officials) are raking in the big bucks in the new “homeland security” industry. Not until we and Israel start walking our talk can we fully be “safe” in the world. Start with justice and the mandate that ALL nations must abide by international law. Like MLK said, it’s hard to criticize the violence (he said “of the ghetto”; one could paraphrase to simply say “others”) when our government is the largest purveyor of violence on the planet. Watch “What I Learned About US Foreign Policy” and read “Overthrow” and “Addicted to Militarism” to get some idea as to how the US sows the seeds of enmity and strife around the world. (And read Ilan Pappe’s “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine” and watch John Pilger’s “Palestine is Still the Issue” to get a sense as to how the Zionist colonial project and slow ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their indigenous land inspires enmity for Israel…and how US funding of Israel’s decades-long occupation of Palestinian land and lives and shielding of Israel from international law and international humanitarian law further inflame sentiment around the world not only towards Israel but towards the US as well.) America has come to stand for privilege, power, and uber-wealth — not for liberty and justice for all. We’ve got a very big log to remove from our own eye. Read Eisenhower’s “Iron Cross” speech…and demand of Congress and the Administration that they bring an end to the rule of militarism in America.

#31

Soon all our money, companies and property will be owned by the Chinese, it is time the USA stop policing the world. Let China who owns the largest gas pipeline and copper mine in Afgaistan worry about peace there. China just purchased the Soviets largest aircraft carrier. Let China police the world. Why should more Americans die? More soldiers have died in the middle east then vicitms of 911. It is time to stop fighting, killing and using the now tired “terroist” excuse. If the CIA was doing its job we would have been safe.

#30

We do have to be careful that we don’t create more terrorists than we destroy because of the number of innocent civilians that we seem to be likely to hit. Our military really should develop better methods of dealing with the problem and be much more precise in its targeting of militants, and eliminate the overkill.

#29

NO. I don’t support the “war” concept, as promoted by Americans like Pat Buchanan, Joe Lieberman, Dick Cheney, etc. Those who promote war point to an abstract “THEM”. And an abstract “US”. ignoring the very wide differences among Americans over the issue of war — and the very wide difference among Yemenis (Iraqis, Afghanis, Vietnamese, Koreans etc)

ANY POLICY that aims to destroy whole countries and societies because of the crimes of the few, is wrong.

#28

In a decent criminal justice system, police investigate a crime and arrest a suspect. The prosecutor presents evidence before a judge and jury in a fair trial with due process for the defendant. Only if convicted can punishment be imposed.
Should police destroy your whole neighborhood and kill your family and dozens of neighbors because a suspected lawbreaker visits your neighborhood?
Not even an actual criminal. Just someone who might commit a crime sometime in the future?
Should other countries bomb U.S. neighborhoods for such a flimsy reason?
This is exactly what the US does repeatedly in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and now Yemen, where Bush and now Obama send bombs and missiles into neighborhoods where “suspected al Qaeda leaders” are suspected of visiting.
Such reckless actions blatantly violate international law and any sense of decency.
Republican and Democratic presidents alike commit these illegal acts, and our bi-partisan Congress provides funding.
The rest of the world is outraged when the US violates international law, but Americans assume that we’re above the law.
Every time Bush or Obama kills innocent civilians, they recruit more terrorists.
The man who tried to destroy a US passenger plane on Christmas Day said he did it in retaliation for the recent U.S. attack in Yemen, which killed 23 people. U.S. news media reported his terrorist attack, but underplayed the U.S. military attack that provoked it.
The U.S.’s “war on terror” creates more terrorists. Military “solutions” are really the problem!
Please make Obama and Congress stop now.

#27

I side with those who want to track them down and kill them wherever you find them, they leave us little choice, the best defense is a good offence. I also agree with those that want to educate them and bring them out of poverty, but this failure is on the heads of the countries they come from. These countries who have been made rich selling their resources to the West, have taken the money and left their people in poverty. These “terrorists” are little more than gangsters hiding behind the Islamic faith to carry out their terror. My sympathies for those of the Islamic faith who spend their days trying to improve the planet not destroy it, but are overshadowed by these thugs. Two thumbs up for the Presidents actions.

#26

It’s as expanded as it should be. Yemen gives us intel and we provide military air supremacy; Yemen’s soldiers finish the job on the ground. Besides, Yemen isn’t half the problem Iran will be when Iran suddenly has nukes.

#25

What the hell, kill them all. That is what we are all about today. Is it not. Remember, what goes around comes around.

#24

Look to the British for much of the Middle East’s artificial borders – whether Yemen (incluidng old Aden), or Saudi Arabia.

Another example is Jordan, which is almost 80% of the Balfour mandate that the League of Nations promised as a Jewish homeland. Jordan is now ruled by the Hahemites, placed there artificially by the British.

The US is paying for Britain’s divide and rule policy now.

#23

When Saudi Arabia and Yemen bomb villages with F16’s and kill 30 or 40 people at a time, we are told they are killing “militants”. The fact that half of them are civilians is simply not mentioned.

There is a different standard aimed at US forces, let alone Israel, which is torn apart whatever it does.

#22

Why is the Yemeni government given a free ride? It is they who condoned and encouraged the incitement that began the terrorism. The same is true of Saudi Arabia, and even Egypt.

Until Ara b regimes stop using hatred of the West as a distraction from their dismal failures, terrorism will simply increase.

And paying of the Yemenis, or the Saudis, etc. will not help.

#21

yes, we should go there and take them out.
why waste money in iraq and afganistan, when we
have easier access, smaller country, and known terrorist activities….

#20

No, we should not expand any unilateral actions we are undertaking in Yemen. They should only occur with the explicit approval of the Yemeni government and preferably with UN approval. Otherwise we risk massive escalation of the jihad we have already incurred.

#19

I would give nothing to this country that produced
Bobby Kennedy’s assassin. We should give to countries that,love us or respect us and it’s easy to spot them over there

#18

Lets face it. The terrorist seem to be poping up in every country. Until this notion that Allah wants people to kill people is proved false these ignorant bastards will multiply. Their poverty and lack of education leads them to believe in this hogwash. Give them something to live for and they will abandon this nonsense. God is the opiate of the people.

#17

I have been thinking about the situation in Yemen. I couldn’t help but think about the similarity of yemen and the Frontier Indian/Calvary wars on the American Frontier of the late 1800’s. We tried to corral the Indian tribes on reservations by chasing them all over. The Indians retaliated with raids on the white man. In the end, nobody won and nobody lost.

We could have a situation very similar to that of Custer and the Battle of The Little Big Horn. We should take a lesson therefrom.

If there were a “give and take” conference of all the players in these wars getting things together, talking honestly, settling on workable ideas and a truce that everybody “trusted”, then maybe we could learn to get along, be ourselves in our own backyards and leave the neighbors alone. It would take a long time, but worth it…

I’m sure that the insurgents are just as tired of
war as we are. They are human too. Maybe it is time to just plain quit. We need to not impose our values on someone else who has a culture just as foreign to us as ours is to him. We don’t need to be the world’s culture standard to all men.

NO!

#15

After I read the book titled “JIHAD” by Tawfik Hamid( a former Jihadist) I will be better able to answer your question. It had 4 and 5 star comments at Amazon by reviewers. The author’s website is http://www.tawfikhamid.com for those who might be interested in how our enemy thinks.

#14

the U.S. should combat terrorism where ever it emerges. it is about how it is combated. tactical undercover presence is needed in place of highly visible troops on patrol. each group and its leaders should be tagged, targeted and eliminated; beginning with radical clerics. large scale logistical wars are not going fair well against guerrilla insurgents. intelligence, infiltration, elimination. otherwise, its a long haul of losses. can’t sit there like sitting ducks, no matter where the pond is.

#13

No. No Al Queda is all over the world. We need to spend more money on foreign aid for education and support of small businesses so that developing countries have fewer people suffering from poverty. These are the people who get recruited by radical terrorists.

#12

No! The terrorists will just move on to the next pile of rocks.
We have given these people far too much credibility already. It reminds me of the Weather Underground years ago who who turned out to be a bunch of upper middle class jerks who could not even build a proper bomb and now are accepted members of society.

We are wasting the lives of many Americans and other country’s civilians for the vanity of powerful men who appear to be largely uninformed about how the rest of us live.

Stop this war and throw the bums out!

#11

The U.S. should not become involved in chasing al-Quaeda in Yemen. Terrorism is best dealt with by education, not military action which succeeds only in alienating the people who are attacked. The U.S. seems to be continuing on its ahistorical way. Apparently little, if anything, was learned from the debacle in Vietnam and the unjustified escapade into Iraq. The idea of “a war on terror” is preposterous. War can only be waged against a country, not a shadowy countryless group. Perhaps it is we “the American people,” a woefully and willfully underinformed people who believe what some of our elected officials tell us and who seem to believe blindly that our way of life is the only meaningful way to live, who are respondible for poor foreign policy decisions taken by our government.

#10

This comment section is as much a joke as is today’s broadcast. The talking head newsreader with a straight face assered that the attempted Deroit airliner bombing was retaliation for a millile strike in mid De4cember. Are there editors or fact heckers at World Focus? THe bomber bought his tickey days before the missile strike for which he was supposedly retaliating. World Focus cannot even get simple linear time lines correct, yet expecta listeners / viewers to give credence to its opinions? World Focus, and these comment sections and daily questions are a joke.

#9

The US should just ignore them. If we drop more bombs, it’s just going to create more international hatred. Not to mention civilian casualties…

#8

As a christain I really want to be tolorant and help lead some of these countries into a world of love and forgiveness.But they(AL Qaeda and other extremist who insist on twisting the Korans teaching to support their own selfish Jihad(Their fame their glory their point of view only because Allah advocates none of this)force me to think we should leave them alone to kill each other off.We can not fight civil wars over failed economics,until they invest in takeing care of their own we can not continue to support with lives and money a failed policy of “Good Samaritan”mediation.Basically let them kill each other off, so the surviveing level heads can correct the obvious, even to them, imbalance in points of veiw.

#7

Yemen. What to do. They don’t act like us. They don’t kowtow to the R&Fs. Rich and Famous. What’s wrong with those people? They must be fanatics? Vietnam. Afghanistan. Iraq. Iran. North Korea. Rwanda. Kenya. Mexico. Venezuela. Philippines. Indonesia. Pakistan. Where does it end?

I think there are 3 issues. 1) The world is overpopulated by a factor of 3, soon to be a factor of 4. 2) The disparity of wealth is as bad as it has ever been. 3) Unemployment on a worldwide basis. I think these issues are insoluble. So, get drunk, have a good time, and buy a prepaid burial policy.

Last comment:
Do you know why there are no bust, statues, paintings, reliefs, of the Prophet? Images can be worship. Images of leaders can be worship. Many are. These two people who had their picture taken and shown on TV has broken one of the rules of the Prophet would have had put forth. No images. These two people have replaced the Qur’an with themselves. There is a place waiting in Hell for them and those who worship them. Even bin Laden has been told that his image is worship by certain people and his Heavenly fate is in question.
Ego are egos.

#5

the question would be if you do not kill the terrorist in their homebase then you risk them killing you in your home. Yemen is a country that is trying to enter the 21th century while many of its town folks leaders seek to 7th century. I beleive that the Prophet once said, ” that those who used the tools of Satan are consider to be imps of Satan. Since many of these terrorist do use the tools of Satan (cell phone)then it work be wise to help Allah to take out these killers of women and children. By the Will of Allah their is a least people that are wiling to stop those who seek not to spread thepeaceful word of the Qur’an, but to tear up the pages of it. These creatures should be hunted down, there heads should be filled with sand, their bodies burn with a strip of beacon upon their chest. Even the King of Saudi Arabia has said they are a threat to Islam and should be dealt with Shia law.

#4

NO, VIOLENCE BEGETS VIOLENCE PERIOD

#3

More pig manure being splash around the Internet. I see pig breath speeks. It cost you to go to Mecca, hum. I would think that your mother would have given you more money to enter Mecca. Maybe your mother should not have given you premission to even to go to Saudia Arabia inthe first place. You claim that you are as poor as a barefoot camel. If you are then not only is the Prophet is against you, but Allah has curse you. Most of the faithful live very well in America there are few like you who have been curse by Allah to gravel in the barn. You seems not to have remember that to mear lived in the Land of Satin will curse you to Hell. As the great bin Laden has said on more than one occasion, “Any person who lives in the Land of Satin is called an Infidel no matter what he says he is, shall be curse and beheaded”.
You seems to fit that mold. Maybe they will spare you and ye shall become an EWE.
By the way no body in the Middle East likes the people of Palestine, especially true people of the faith.

#2

The question as I remember from the broadcast caused me to respond that President Obama should continue to promote peace and encourage people to pursue the ways of peace. Violence enforces the will of men on others quickly but temporarily and usually with many casualties. On the other hand, when we wait for God’s solution, we learn about peacemaking, like in a recent situation involving my mother in a way that I was attacked by violent evil thoughts which attack so fast sometimes that the only way to get hold of oneself is to have someone else redirect my focus which was done by a pastor friend I called because I live with unbelievers who don’t know what goes on in the spiritual realm. God’s response came the next day and involved putting a prayer in a Christmas card to my mother to help her understand my point of view in relation to hers. The Prince of Peace is the One with the answers, and we should wait for them. Violence should never be the choice because there is only one God, and His ways are peace. Glory to You, O Christ! You are great, and You are good. I love and adore You forever and trust You for everything. Maranatha!
