US' Next War Target: YEMEN

30-12-2009 17:43

Northern Yemen Tribes
Yemen is US' Next Target on War Against Terrorism ... Obama promised to crush Al-Qaeda in Yemen ... The US government announced its relentless commitments to crush terrorists in Yemen. Yesterday, Barack Obama promised ‘accelerated offensive’ against militants in Yemen by citing the example of a 23-year-old Nigerian who supposedly wanted to bomb a US bound airliner. The president of that North American country said he would commit ‘every element of national power’ to perform another mission in the Middle East, a region which holds huge oil and gas reserves. But many experts have questioned Washington's seemingly aggressive military drive into the Middle East as whether it is designed to destroy the Al-Qaeda militants or just making up excuses to boost military presence to control vital energy resources.

Gaza's border must be opened NOW

Solidarity activists join hunger strikers in Cairo
This time is clearly different.

I have traveled to Gaza twice this year, in groups ranging from 40 to 60 persons, and although there was a lot of behind-the-scenes work involved in "greasing the wheels" with the Egyptian authorities, we pretty much sailed in. CODEPINK (the group that organized both of my previous trips) developed a well-earned reputation for being able to pull just the right levers to open the doors to the isolated enclave of Gaza -- even more so than George Galloway's Viva Palestina convoy, which is typically allowed in for only 24 to 48 hours (versus our four days).
