US Military Seeks Major Increases in Aid to Yemen

According to reports from US officials, the Pentagon is proposing a dramatic increase in the amount of military aid sent to Yemen annually, with some officials pushing for as much as $250 million in the next annual appropriation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the US military aid in the world is not going to help unless and until the terrible living conditions with which most Yemeni citizens have to cope are ameliorated.

Unfortunately, in light of the fact that the Yemeni government is one of the most corrupt governments in the region (and that's saying something), most of this aid will most likely line the pockets of the ruling Saleh family, and do nothing to bring its people out of the grinding poverty which can sometimes make insurgency attractive.
