AND THE BOMBER TRUMP BODY COUNT GROWETH EVER MORE

Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb. Bomb.

With all those bombs being dropped civilians, perhaps even beautiful babies, are bound to suffer.

And so it is in Yemen.

Here's at least 3 more civilians to add to the Bomber Trump body count.

Locals say a Sunday US drone strike against Yemen’s southern Shabwa Province killed seven people, including three confirmed civilians who appear to have been bystanders, and four people riding in a vehicle, who were labeled “al-Qaeda suspects.”

...This lack of identification of the victims who are labeled suspects across myriad US attacks is reflective of the use of “signature strikes,” in which US drones target things on the ground that simply look like they might be AQAP. In a nation with rampant shortages, this appears to include anyone with a functioning car.

It is unusual to get admissions out of Yemen of civilians actually being killed in a US strike, however, as generally speaking any bystanders who happen to be near a car would just up the number of “suspects” slain. Suspects are almost never conclusively identified.
