With luck Al Qaeda ( in all its various forms ) will be destroyed. If we are even luckier violent Muslim extremism will soon be a thing of the past. (Which would be a good thing for everyone especially the Muslim world.)
Al-Qaeda losing ground to U.S.-backed Yemeni offensive
Yemeni warplanes and troops backed by heavy artillery waged a four-front assault on al-Qaeda militants Tuesday, trying to uproot their hold in the south in an offensive Yemeni officials said was for the first time being directly guided by American troops at a nearby airbase.
The central U.S. role in the operation would be a significant stepping up of American-Yemeni co-operation against al-Qaida's branch here, which is accused of a string of attempted attacks against the United States.
