It is reported today that Gordon Brown has called a summit in London to discuss radicalisation in Yemen, after the alleged failed bomb attack on a US plane over Detroit.
No 10 said the 28 January event had support from Washington and the European Union and Mr Brown aimed to attract Saudi Arabia and Gulf states.
Alleged plane bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is believed to have linked up with Al-Qaeda in Yemen.
Brown said the meeting would involve key international partners and be held alongside the conference on the future of Afghanistan, due to be held in London on the same day.
He said, "The international community must not deny Yemen the support it needs to tackle extremism. I have said before that Yemen - as both an incubator and potential safe haven for terrorism - presents a regional and global threat."
Mr Brown added that the UK had a £100m commitment to Yemen, making it one of the country's biggest donors and that Britain was providing assistance including intelligence support and training of counter terror units.
Once again, Gordon Brown thinks his opinion matters as he calls for another summit. Another jamboree which is unnecessary as any discussions could take place very easily by video-conferencing. But as we know Mr Brown has a obsessive desire to be seen as one of the 'big boys' and also to be thought of as a generous donator to his chosen world causes - using our money of course.
Is this the start of softening us up for sending troops into Yemen?
Why doesn't Gordon Brown have a summit with his own cabinet and sort out the problems within the UK rather than be concerned about the Yemen. Many who are 'radicalised' have a connection with Britain. The evidence is here for all to see, yet he ignores it.
Day by day our safety in this country is being diluted because of this man's erroneous decisions. He's no longer capable of making sound judgements.
