Someone juiced up his hookah......

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I remember hearing that he was hit by a rock. Yemeni rock must be really explosive.

This is why you shouldn’t drink and smoke at the same time.

given that it is Yemen

I will go on record promising that whomever replaces him will be less friendly to us

a hotspot impossible to govern without a heavy hand and rife with that which hates us

I swiped the quote from one of Richard Pryor’s old routines. For someone who nearly burned himself to death, he had a really good sense of humor about it.

Couldnt have happened to a nicer guy.

However, AL QAEDA IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA (AQAP) will be 100x worse than this buzzard (who instructs soldiers to fire on his own people)

“(who instructs soldiers to fire on his own people)”

What’s the big deal with that?

We’ve done it here too, running the “Bonus Army” out of DC for example, and most recently Kent State, Ruby Ridge, and WACO.
I do not recall any administration members of any rank getting into any real trouble over any of these incidents.

Follow-up

An Arab diplomatic source with knowledge of Saleh's condition says one shrapnel wound is 7 centimeters (2.75 inches) deep.

That’s a mission kill. He won’t be effective as a leader until a long time after this is settled one way or the other. Not that Saleh was our friend, but there is a very high risk that his replacement will be even worse for America, for Israel, for women in his country, for the few non-Muslims in that country, and for the world. I imagine Obama is backing the rebels for all those reasons.

So, they are no longer willing to wait for political solutions. They’re going straight to assassination. Not good.

Thanks TigerLikesRooster. He’s not a young guy. But this isn’t going to slow things down, Yemen is just getting going (again).
