Press TV – January 22, 2017 Separate US drone attacks have killed four people in the southwestern Yemeni province of Bayda. The United States carries out drone attacks in Yemen and several other countries, claiming to be targeting al-Qaeda elements, but, local sources say civilians have been the main victims of the attacks. The drone strikes in Yemen continue alongside the Saudi military aggression against the impoverished conflict-ridden country.attacks in Yemen and several other countries, claiming to be targeting al-Qaeda elements, but, local sources say civilians have been the main victims of the attacks. The drone strikes in Yemen continue alongside the Saudi military aggression against the impoverished conflict-ridden country.

A radio host and political commentator says US drone strikes are “absolutely atrocious,” adding that Washington is directly involved in Yemen’s war when it is “actively dropping bombs” on the war-torn country.

“I do not think a lot of the people in the United States even realize that United States is actually bombing Yemen. They think that the United States is simply supplying arms to Saudi Arabia, but the fact is United States is actually in there bombing people themselves with these drone strikes,” Max Igan told Press TV in an interview on Sunday.

He noted that it is “pretty outrageous” and “terrible” that the drone strikes are going on at the time of US presidential transition.

The commentator further argued that if US President Donald Trump wants to deescalate the war on terror and try to bring about stability and peace to the Middle East, he should stop the drone strikes.

Why is Trump continuing to drone civilians in Yemen? During his campaign he promised to end US military intervention in the affairs of other country.

  1. In my view, everything Trump said at the CIA was pure grandstanding. I’m not sure what he thought he accomplished – it just made him look silly.

  2. ytaca says:

    I think this is happen because of the weakness in yemen goverment they can not control their country security for that reason USA interfare directily with no respect of yemen people.

  3. It’s not just the U.S supply the Saudis in their bombing campaign against Houthi rebels. There are many other countries such as U.K supplying illegal cluster bombs.

  4. Excellent point, Cockroach. It’s important not to lose sight of the support the US receives from its allies.
