    Yemen has been the highlight of a lot media stories concerning terrorists, instability, and extremism. But, as is often the case, we neglect the down-to-Earth human side of these countries we hear so much about but never really learn about. I found this photo essay very interesting and I hope you all do as well :)

    The idea of invading countries and fighting conventional wars to stop terrorism is dumb IMO

    It just creates more people who hate us

    No these people need to be taken out with small groups of elite special forces.

    As I understand it, there is a civil war going on in yemen. And we are aiding the gov. in crushing the opposition.

    There are probaby very few actual al quaeda.
