Yemen sides with the terrorists

NY Times:

After Flawed Raid, Yemen Forbids U.S. Ground Missions

Yemen was angered by civilian deaths, apparently including children, during a raid last month, officials said. It is a setback for Mr. Trump, who wants to take a more aggressive antiterror approach.
Yemen appears to be making the mistake of siding with terrorists and attempting to make itself into a terrorist sanctuary.  It barely has a functioning government and if it did that government would not be allowing terrorists to operate with impunity.  Those threatened by the terrorist will ignore to governments attempts to forbid operations against the terrorists.

If Yemen is angered by civilian deaths it should point its anger at the terrorists who use civilians as human shields.  The US should continue to attack al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists wherever they can be found.
