Poll question: Should the US. intervene in the Yemen civil conflict?
Two choices, no nuance, no kitteh, but kitteh is still watching.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

Or is it America should be the oil price police?

3. 1. If there are civilians being bombed to death by the air force of the country.
Edited on Mon Mar-21-11 09:42 AM by originalpckelly
2. If there is no other solution to protect them.
3. If there is a way to guarantee low or non-existent US casualties.
4. How would you feel under the circumstances?

4. You need a choice for "other" since the US has been intervening for years now
The US needs to pull the fuck out of Yemen. We're nothing but a war state. No money for jobs, for housing, for food but plenty for war to make other people around the world miserable too.

We're bombing them, using predator drones on their territory, killing innocent people to include women and children in Obama's clandestine war there.

We need to pull out of there and let the Yemenis take their country in whatever direction they want to, without our interference for *stability* of our interests.

11. OK
Friday's killings of 52 anti-government protesters by rooftop snipers in Sanaa prompted Saleh to declare a state of emergency for 30 days that restricts freedom of movement and the right to gather and gives police more powers to make arrests.

12. "Rival tanks deploy in streets of Yemen's capital after powerful general defects to opposition"

In Libya, you have tanks and aircraft versus small arms.

In Yemen, you have large numbers of armed units in open opposition. I would not be surprised if the rebel forces actually have more power than the government ones at this point and I personally think they will succeed quite easily without any outside help.

15. To quote Tony Soprano, "what's in it for me?"
that the US's stance on intervention.
