A massive US airstrike in Yemen has killed what the Pentagon estimates is “dozens” of people, the second such mass-casualty strike the US military has undertaken this month.

The two strikes, killing more than 200 people at what the Pentagon described as terrorist training camps, diverged so sharply from the previous years’ worth of relatively low-casualty strikes that observers speculated US policy might have quietly changed.

Peter Cook, the Pentagon spokesman, announced late Tuesday that the US had bombed a mountain redoubt in Yemen used by al-Qaida’s local affiliate, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). He said it was a “training camp” used by “more than 70 AQAP terrorists”.

An independent assessment of the actual impact of the strike, to include a full casualty total and civilian impact, was not immediately available. The Pentagon did not provide further detail of where in Yemen the alleged camp was located.

    Meanwhile in the internet backwaters lurks a simple blog with simple topics for simple people.
    So no unknowns venture in to dabble with the intellectual prowess of the regulars, to challenge and tackle the tough problems of the day, to venture into the keyboard wilderness to seek truth wherever it maybe and return here to tell it @ DWF.

    Guardien chicken is veggies made to have a chicken texture and taste. I like it.

    Fried up a big pack of boneless, skinless chicken thighs today. For the freezer, for when I don’t want to cook.

    Snow in Michigan, nothing here though. I think it’s from the middle of Michigan on up.

    Grandson Nicholas is in the living room. Grandpa is with him. Pete & Sara had tickets to see Neil deGrasse Tyson in Ann Arbor. It ran late so they won’t be here to pick him up until almost 11:30 p.m. I didn’t go out for my walk of course, but I will after they leave. I need my walking about time. Mostly the standing time. I sit too much.
