Al Qaeda Seizes Second Yemeni City
Pundit Press ^ | 6/2/2011 | Thomas Ferdousi

As if the news from Yemen wasn't distressing enough, it now appears that it could be getting worse. Just two days after al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula captured a city in the protest-riddled country they have done it again. Meanwhile, about 100 people have been killed in protests over the last several days.

Reportedly, the city of Shazzan in the southern part of the country has fallen to the terrorists. This comes as the dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh, refuses to step down.

"Following fierce battles with government forces, fighters of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) managed to seize the whole city of Azzan in the southeast province of Shabwa on Wednesday, announcing that the city of Azzan joins in their Islamic emirate," one local official told Xinhua.

Some tribal leaders and residents confirmed the news in phone conversations with Xinhua.

The tribal leaders said the AQAP militants were enjoying high- level activities nowadays because of the weak presence of security forces, which were pulled out to major cities to curb the four- month-long anti-government protests as well as to secure the government and foreign interests from sporadic riot acts.

It's becoming worse than Libya.

Only in America.

We allowed this to happen.

And now that the genie is out of the bottle, how do we stuff the bitch back in? Obama is in the drivers seat for the moment, and is driving the death to America crowd to where they want to go. He is giving us the soft kill for now... then arms and manpower will follow.

We were suckered and now we are just beginning to see the payback by the enemy alien.
