    The govt. in Yemen has fallen to a Coup. A US friend that receives much funding to fight terrorism....... We will all have to watch to see how this develops.

    Possible US evacuation could occur very soon. A former CIA head just said on CNN that money sent there in recent years went to corruption ("Whiskey for the president"). This will be tribal with Iran and Saudi on opposite sides. The guy (Michael Scheuer) said it will result in our enemies killing each other. That was not politically correct at all.

    Tony....good afternoon

    Question: What does political correctness have to do with it? He simply stated a fact. I've been waiting for this thread. If this is the guy from the CNN interview then he also stated that" since the US is unwilling to kill thousands upon thousands of people (as needed) then the world has to rely on these side conflicts to aid them"
    These people are going to kill each other no matter what you do or say. That's the history between them. In saying that, does it really mater the manner in which they die?
    Is that being politically incorrect?
    And, as you can see from the reactions in Europe...I believe they've had enough.....they don't take the same position in "political correctness" as this country does.....nor should they..

    Just a few days ago I suggested in another thread what we may want to do in Yemen, You see, if not us..then someone else. People are people when it comes down to it. We all think alike. When someone brings nonsense to my doorstep (however insignificant you may think it is) in my world...thats called a fight.....So I'm gonna fight. I'm gonna deal with any threat in the manner I see fit. Period. We are animals. Period. The moment at which you believe that you're above animal, primal instincts....that is an illusory, entitled position.....
    Funny, the bible said that the weak shall inherit the earth, that's probably why they built prisons. Regardless of what or how any of us feel about "man" ...to even think that man can be have "self control" and live in peace with one another is complete fantasy. We've been killing each other since we walked out of africa......ACCEPT THAT. Just an objective opinion from a fellow savage

    L.A.,
    I thought about you when I made this post. I thought about a few of your recent statements about mass killings cleaning up the mess going on world wide.
    My statement about political correctness was kind of out regarding many will die and who knows which side anyone is on.

    Within the next few deades the world is going to have to tackle some very difficult challenges. Climate change, our oceans, food sources, automation replacing workers, drought etc..etc.. These issues are coming. These issues affect our species.
    And on top of that we're gonna still have to deal with this "hocus pokus" fued??? No sir. That was acceptable 50 years ago because that's just the way it was. Our behaviors affecting the earth wasn't an issue, the population was about half of what it is today and science really didn't understand the earth as it does today.
    With all this on our plate coming in the near future, it's time to clean house. This cannot be accepted globally. It's just another hinderance of the issues we really need to get focused on.
    If anyone wants to live in the twelth century (religious or not) then I'm all for giving people what they want. If you're god's warrior and he has all these perks waiting for you in heaven....then I wish you a quick departure to his kingdom. I don't know how else to respond. There's no need for this "INSANITY" in the 21st century. You do your best to eliminate it. People have to start thinking about long term survival for our species. This insane war on mystical dominance has gone on for thousands of years.....you either kill all the bad guys today (big number) or you allow them to kill each other over the next hundred years (still a big number) the outcome is the same.

    The beauty of all of this is; everywhere where we stick our noses in, it backfires; how much money did we waste there already and how much more are we going to spent? Sorry this country will never learn; stop the flag waving and "sniper" films; Hitler did, result known.
