Default Al-Qaeda retakes 3 Yemen towns days after

Just a short time after that Commando raid which comes under the Trump as president..
The same Al-Qaeda force that was the point of the raid has retaken 3 towns..
Not that they wouldn't have if there was no raid.

Yemen Named as Nation Where Risk of Mass Killing Rose Most...

Study: Yemen Named as Nation Where Risk of Mass Killing Rose Most in 2016
Thursday 20th July, 2017 - Yemen was named on Thursday as the nation where the risk of genocide or mass killing rose the most last year, while Syria topped an annual 'Peoples Under Threat' index for the third consecutive year.
Quote:
The index, by human rights group Minority Rights Group International (MRG), said vulnerable people were at risk in a growing number of no-go zones around the world with a lack of access from the outside world allowing killing to go unchecked. The report comes after United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein last month condemned some governments for refusing access to U.N. officials while a study this week showed the U.N. had succeeded in preventing wars.

The 12th MRG index found the risks rose most markedly in Yemen last year, with the impoverished Arab country devastated by a war between a Saudi-led coalition and Iran-allied Houthis that has killed more than 10,000 people and left millions starving. 'Parties on both sides of the conflict have violated international humanitarian law with impunity,' the report said. 'International isolation is a known risk factor for genocide or mass killing,' added Mark Lattimer, MRG's executive director, in a statement.


Yemen was listed as No. 8 in a list of 70 countries where people are seen as being at risk, behind Syria, Somalia, Iraq, Sudan, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Democratic Republic of the Congo. Other countries to move significantly in the list last year were Libya, Nigeria, Eritrea and Turkey. The MRG report said the failed coup in Turkey last year was followed by a nationwide program of dismissals and arrests of tens of thousands of public officials. Requests by the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) for 'effective and unfettered access' continues to be denied, the report said. 'If governments are increasingly evading international scrutiny, this is a serious concern,' Lattimer said.

Preventing war

A study released on Wednesday by the U.S.'s Dartmouth College and Ohio State University found the United Nations has been an effective force at preventing wars over its history. The review of more than 5,000 voting records found the 193-member state organization provides a forum for diplomacy and communication, fostering alliances and reducing conflict. 'There is more nuance in voting records than we previously thought,' said Skyler Cranmer, professor of political science at Ohio State University. 'The evidence demonstrates that the U.N. is more effective at achieving its mandate of avoiding wars than many experts think.'
