U.S. Launches Air Strikes in Yemen

The U.S. has conducted a series of air strikes in Yemen against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the Pentagon announced.

More than 20 strikes launched Thursday targeted AQAP militants, equipment and infrastructure in the Yemeni governorates of Abyan, Al Bayda and Shabwah, according to a statement by Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis.

A Pentagon official said the strikes were conducted by both drones and manned aircraft, and were not the direct result of information from January’s SEAL raid, which also took place in Al Bayda. The official said information from the raid may have corroborated the targeting information, but the targets themselves were already known.

Thursday’s strikes are the latest in a series of missions targeting AQAP in Yemen, planning for which was developed over many weeks, and which included the January 29 raid, according to a defense official.

    If Trump wants to take out ISIS and other Radical Islamists he should concentrate on the source of Radical Islam. Islam itself. If any Islamic nation supports and defends Radical Islam they should be considered our enemies and we should take out their oil. Oil is the lifeblood of the Middle East. If Islamic nations want to keep their oil flowing they must act to stop Radical Islam or pay the price. We will never win any battle within the Middle East if we do not put pressure on Islam itself. Who made the Middle East rich with oil? The US helped develop their oil industry and after the Muslims learned to function without the US the US and other nations were kicked out. So it would be only fitting to take away their wealth from oil. If the Islamic nations want to act as they did under Mohamed maybe we should send Islam back to that time economically. If a Islamic nation threatens or uses a Nuclear weapon against the US, Europe, or Israel I say bring it on. If Islamic nations do not respect our sovereignty then we should not respect theirs. Maybe after the US takes out our enemies infrastructure they will get the message that Radical Islam is the enemy of the US. It should be made clear to ALL Islamic nations that the death of innocents is not justified under any God. The US declared war on Radical Islam after the fall of the World Trade Center and this war will not end until Radical Islam ends. The Liberal Left may defend the concept of Islam being Political Correct, but this is not the view of all American as they would have the world believe. There is not one true American who sees Radical Islam as acceptable, including many American Muslims.

      From a professional military man, Until the pussy politicians, keep out of it with the decision making, nothing will be permanent. The military needs to be given the green light and all the politicians should go on leave or vacation. If you don’t kill the enemy, they will come back at you. Unleash America’s military might and slaughter the enemy ISIS to their death. Then the other radical want to be’s will understand, if you mess with America you will die. These third world countries only understand strength not political garbage coming out of the mouths of politicians. ISIS needs to be wiped out, no prisoners, if they are ISIS they must be exterminated.
