Default Special Warfare Operators fighting in Yemen

Trumps first order to go into combat has sad results for the Special Operators involved in the Yemen Raid.


Quote:
WASHINGTON — One American commando was killed and three others were injured in a fierce firefight overnight with Qaeda militants in central Yemen, the military said Sunday morning. The raid was the first counterterrorism operation approved by President Trump since he took office nine days ago.

And of course some civilians were killed or wounded. The story is here:

My point was the actual raid and I except to lose a few people going in that deep inside a total hostile area.

But all I had was that article and they had the crap title. I voted for Trump so that is number 1. Number two is reality & the Truth. I don't write these news stories, I post them.

So if it is wrong all I can say is sorry I should have spent another 10 to 20 minutes of my time looking to see if every other news article about this situation agreed...

You see Jimbo unlike others my life isn't online any longer. I have limited time to spend online. SO cross checking a news article that a writer has writen, well you get the idea... If it is wrong there is always someone looking to rub my nose in it... I can count on that.. As some people well never mind.
