Yemen: America Never Misses A Chance To Do Their Worst

Well, it's not exactly a new thing in American history. They did use the collapse of the Spanish empire at the beginning of the 20th century to invade the Philippines and Cuba and subvert their liberation struggles to America's imperialist ends. A little closer to the present, the American led disaster in Somalia was really the end game of a Yemen-esque revolt against the American client regime of Siad Barre that the dictator did everything in his power to turn into a civil war. Of course, the American attempt to use the power vacuum to reassert their hegemony turned out rather badly (Blackhawk Down, anyone?). But these guys just keep coming back to ensure the presence of evil in the world. You have to admire their commitment, if not their motives, methods or results.
No doubt America is happy to have Yemen's American backed dictator, Saleh, hang on to power as long as possible in order to give the US a free hand to do their worst and kill as many "enemies" as possible. And they wonder why no one likes them...
