  •  And no Yemeni attacks since that began. (0+ / 0-)

    The Yemeni government is, and was, our ally.

    Again, the "unintended consequences" thing has a data problem.  If such attacks made terrorism against us more likely at all, then there would be some correlation.

    But there isn't such a correlation - and what's more, there is a strong negative correlation.

    There are very good reasons to argue against military action, but "creating terrorists who will attack us" just isn't one of them.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
