Trouble in Yemen

Post  Skeptical on Tue Jan 20, 2015 4:11 pm

It does appear there is a problem over in Yemen.

CNN)—Shiite Houthi rebels overtook the presidential palace in Yemen's capital, Sanaa, on Tuesday, marking what a government minister called "the completion of a coup."

"The President has no control," Minister of Information Nadia Sakkaf told CNN as clashes raged.

President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi was thought to be in his private residence at the time -- not in the palace. There were reports of clashes near the residence.

And the Prime Minister's residence was under attack from the street, Sakkaf said.

The regime still controlled the city of Aden, and it closed the port of Aden as well as roads leading into and out of Sanaa, according to Yemeni state TV, controlled by the government.

Power vacuum could benefit terrorist group AQAP

The global stakes are high. Yemen is home to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, the terror network linked to such attacks as the recent slaughter at French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo. AQAP also tried to blow up a plane landing in Detroit in 2009.

If the Yemen government falls and Al Qaeda winds up in power how does that affect what that MT suit HMWAIC telling the country that the U.S. counterterrorism strategy in Yemen is a model for the fight against the Islamic State?

Well, guess what?

Would it indicate the boy king's model of U.S. counterterrorism strategy in Yemen turned out to be a non working model

What are your thoughts?

And how many Gitmo prisoners were transferred to Yemen for "safe" keeping?

It was a rhetorical question.  I hope this link helps the liberals with that concept.

But thanks for the analytical response and that was a "sincere" thanks.

How could this data be used in the future?

I don't think you understand what an analytical response is. Either that or you didn't bother to look at the link. There was no analysis in that link, just raw data that answers the question that apparently didn't want to know the answer to.

You're welcome.

Well so much for trying to be nice to a dumb ass liberal, it is never worth the effort.  

Data is the input to analysis.  My point was simply that your comment was on the side of analytical rather than emotional which is almost always the default for dumb ass liberals.  I can see now it was merely a slip up on your part.  You are a jackass. You dumb ass liberals are going to be deserving of all the scorn that comes down on you assholes in the coming years. You are despicable creatures.

That was your version of nice?

My comment just offered the answer to your question. That is all.

Is analysis based on factual data a bad thing? Are you trying to say that I should rely on pure emotion rather than fact? Sorry, the Good Lord gave me both a heart and a mind and I will use them both. Anything less would be an insult to His gift.

My "comment" just offered the answer to your question. That is all. If you choose to use that data as an analytical tool, that is your choice. If you choose to form your opinion on a purely emotional basis, that is your choice. And if you choose to react to this simple answer to your question with this highly emotional reaction, that too is your choice.

But the fact remains, my "comment" simply offered an answer to the question that you asked. It was a link with no comment attached. No analysis. No emotion. Just an answer to your question. Why would that bother you so much?

Anyway, in case anyone is not as fact adverse as jammer, here's the answer.

22 prisoners were transfered into the custody of the Yemeni government, 8 under the Obama administration and the rest under the Bush administration. They could all be easily described as "the worst of the worst" and all were citizens of Yemen.

Thirty Yemeni citizens are still being held at Gitmo and the rest of the Yemeni nationals have been transfered or released to other countries.

Personally I thought Jammer's question was valid, I was surprised that he amended it and labeled it as "rhetorical".

We've transfered 22 pretty nasty terrorists into the Yemeni government's hands and now that their nation is in a state of turmoil, the disposition of those prisoners is a very serious question.
