Tens of al-Qaeda militants, 16 civilians dead in ‘US raid’ in Yemen

Tens of al-Qaeda militants, 16 civilians dead in ‘US raid’ in Yemen | Middle East Eye – Sources in the region said the raid targeted the houses of three tribal chiefs linked to al-Qaeda and that an unspecified number of civilians were also killed. But the provincial official said Apache helicopters also struck a school, mosque and a medical facility used by al-Qaeda members. Other sources spoke of US commandos taking part in the operation, but this has not been confirmed by credible sources. The three prominent tribal figures killed in the attack were identified as brothers Abdulraouf and Sultan al-Dhahab and Saif Alawai al-Jawfi, the official and other sources said. They were known for their strong links to al-Qaeda, the sources said. The Dhahab (also referred to as al-Zahab) brothers had two other al-Qaeda brothers who were also killed in the past by drone strikes. An al-Qaeda chief in the region, who was identified as foreigner Abu Barazan, was also killed in the attack, the official said.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What happens when racist, alt-right, anti-feminist, anti-asian white men marry extremely racist, status-obsessed, asian women that hate asian men and hope their children look white - and have a son or daughter who looks asian?

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer White men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and White women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to White men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many White supremacists, alt-rightists, and White Nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children?
