Now America is waging a fourth war in the Dar al Islam
Steve W. writes:
I confess I was not aware of the “covert” operation in Yemen, but this is shocking news. We’re involved militarily in yet another unstable Middle Eastern country. Only this time we’re bombing the rebels, not the leadership, as in Libya. It truly appears that American foreign policy in the region has come unhinged. Our political, intelligence, and military communities are out of control. This massive escalation of our involvement in the internal affairs of Muslim nations, thanks above all to George W. Bush, will not end happily. I cannot help but think that this is yet another sign of the “decline and fall” of our once great nation.
Philip M. writes from England:
I was saying to my friend a few days ago that I didn’t see how the West could not get involved in Yemen. There is a threat that Al-Queda could get into power there, and this was given as such a terrible problem that we invaded Afghanistan for the same thing.
