TERROR - Obama Bombs Yemen during week of climate change summit

"US Nobel Peace Prize laureate President Barack Obama has signed the order for a recent military strike on Yemen in which scores of civilians, including children, have been killed ...

"...military warplanes on Thursday blanketed two camps in the North of the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, claiming there were "an imminent attack against a US asset was being planned," ABC News quoted anonymous administration officials as saying on Friday.

"The US air raids were then followed by a Yemeni ground forces attack.

"The operation led to the death of around 120 people of whom many were civilians, including children, the report quoted Yemeni opposition as saying. "

[Last report: 68 civilian dead, including 28 children.]

According to the Angry Arab, "The US has been playing war games in Yemen for a week now in support of Yemen's fight against the Houthi militants, including the sending in of US Special Forces to help quell the "crisis" and "ensure regional stability." So what if a few villages get bombed in the process?""

Quoting presstv.ir again, "Yemen's Houthi fighters say the US fighter jets have launched 28 attacks on the northwestern province of Sa'ada. The US has used modern fighter jets and bombers..."

Sarcastic as it can get --> The combined ABC-news report itself, and the beginning advertisement almost seem intentional?
