    I'm waiting for the version with Russian hackers (or saboteurs).
    And yes, I think US Air Forces and Special Forces should not work in Yemen. It's now Iranian and Russian zone of influence.

    We never needed to have a permanent presence in Yemen, we are already in Djibouti. Of course America would never turn down a foot hold anywhere even if its on the Sun.
