Yemen: Toward Another US Quagmire

Like his predecessor, Obama is recklessly plunging into impoverished Yemen in a bid to shore up US strategic and economic interests in the Middle East. At this stage, the Pentagon has ruled out sending US troops. This reflects concerns that as well as the US military being overstretched by the neo-colonial occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan, sending in ground forces would intensify opposition to President Saleh’s autocratic and widely detested rule.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, with military campaigns all over the Middle East, what the finite upper limit may be to how many contract mercenaries the US can hire before the US if forced to re-institute some kind of draft/national service policy.
