Today's Civilian Victims in Yemen Will be Ignored Because U.S. and its Allies Are Responsible

firstlook.org — In Fayoush, Yemen this morning, just outside of Aden, "a massive airstrike" hit a marketplace and killed at least 45 civilians, wounding another 50. Officials told AP that "bodies were strewn about following the strike."

beforeitsnews.com — (Before It's News) By Michael Snyder Have you ever come across someone on the Internet that you suspected was a paid government troll? Well, there is a very good chance that you were not imagining things. Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now have solid proof that paid government trolls are using "psychology-based influence techniques" on social media websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

@pegggerrzzz123 Thanks! Working on a story on it now, and definitely is something I intend to pay a lot more attention to.

@pegggerrzzz123 I agree most animal killing, even for food, is wrong. But not all of it is: some of it is done by the poor for necessity.

@pegggerrzzz123 Poor people who fish, or who eat chickens, because of no other means to eat, are evil?

@ChristianWhiton But neither of us are, which must make you feel impotent and frustrated.

@billmon1 It's been corrected, deleted, etc. But yeah: I could get behind that one, too.

@gregpmiller LOL - I deleted it almost immediately. Though these types of mistakes are rarely without meaning.
