fighting Al Qaeda is a bottomless pit? Now we're chasing their asses around Yemen.
Do you remember stories like this regarding Yemen that were reported in 2009? The problem with Al Qaeda is that it's true strength, make-up, and vulnerabilities are unknowable.
Thanks for the link, CG. I really wasn't aware of the previous U.S. military activity in Yemen.
I'm surprised this thread hasn't picked up more response. Maybe I should have made the topic more obvious in the title.
I think I'll create a new thread with a new title.
Please see substituted thread titled: "Is going after al Qaeda militarily an operation without end?"
The war on terrorism is like the war on drugs.
You can work forever to cut down on the incidents, but you'll never completely eliminate the threat. When Al Qaeda isn't the central focus, another group will take their place. But as long as our government and military keep a watchful eye on suspicious activity when intelligence suggests we'll be fine. We don't need to be in the Middle East anymore.
This really was the gist of my question.
We'll still need to have a robust intelligence presence/connection there though.
