We're at war in Yemen? According to a wire service report the US is intensifying drone attacks in Yemen. That's in addition to Bush's two wars, Afghanistan and Iraq, and Obama's war in Libya. Granted, we are drawing down troops in Iraq and plan to draw them down in Afghanistan. Still, we are making 1/4 of the air strikes in Libya and our allies are pushing for us to increase that. Our involvement there has gone far beyond establishing a no-fly zone. Instead we are trying to overthrow the Libyan government.

In Yemen we seem to be trying to prop up a crumbling government against rebels allied with al-Qaeda.

I thought that the Democrats were the party of peace. Or at least the party of the War Powers Act.
