US airstrikes counterproductive in Yemen, Iraq | neurope.eu
Abdul Salam Muhammad, head of ABAAD center for strategic studies, said the United States does not want to help the governments in Iraq and Yemen and airstrikes either by jet fighters or drones aimed to keep its influence and protect U.S. investments in the two countries.
Persistent violence in Iraq and the dominance of IS remains a direct result of the U.S. policies in this country which led the 2003 invasion on false grounds, he said, while adding that the problem of the U.S. drones is not only restricted to killing innocents but also violating Yemen's airspace.
"One of the most important effects of the drones is that the United States does not sincerely help countries where it sends its drones but focuses on possible dangers threatening its own security," Muhammad said.
