Yemen Reports First Drone Strike Under Trump

Yemeni security and tribal official confirmed Sunday that suspected U.S. drone strikes have killed three alleged al-Qaida operatives, the Associated Press reported Sunday.

The two Saturday strikes in Yemen’s southwestern Bayda province are the first reported drone actions under President Donald Trump.



  1. Sad that the bombing continues. ZH reporting that among the first executive orders will be to "Task the Defense Secretary and joint chiefs to come up with plan to eviscerate ISIS". I''m optimistically reading this as figure out how to bring an end to the bombing. Politically he cannot say stop bombing, he has to say finish the job. If they finish the job and stop the bombing, it would mark a huge change from the past 16 years. (I''m not holding my breath, however.)

    1. nixon also said something similar, and expanded the war in order to 'finish it'.

  2. Trump is officially the Warmonger in Chief. That didn't take long.
