    That is what I mentioned above.

    We are attacking al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula there. But that is not part of the civil war / proxy war.

    I doubt the Muslims see it that way.

    The US can't base it policy on what Muslims think.

    The US is attacking al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula inside Yemen. We are not taking sides in the civil war.

    If Muslims don't want to believe this- tough.

    We'd help them. IF the Mob was detonating ieds in foreign malls for example. If they're using our country as a sanctuary to plan and carry out attacks versus other countries, I would suspect we'd cooperate, help root them out, invite their security services to join in the manhunt and when we catch the little Schumer/Pelosi, we waterboard the shiit out of he or she and find out what they know. Why?
