President Donald Trump may have ordered more attacks in Yemen than all previous US presidents combined, according to a report from the monitoring group Airwars.

While campaigning against "forever wars," Trump has loosened rules of engagement in the global war on terror, dramatically escalating airstrikes and ground raids in Yemen and elsewhere.

The attack, intended to take out a suspected group of al-Qaeda militants, began with a botched landing and ended with a Navy Seal dead.

US strikes in Yemen have dropped off since then, to less than 40 in 2019 to less than 20 thus far this year.

Does that mean, then, that President Trump is backing up his rhetoric against "forever wars" with measurable actions?.

At the same time, the US government, under Trump, is being less transparent about who and what is bombing.

As with the global war on terror, those sales have only increased since the US experienced regime change. »
