"Yanked", or "Yanking" is a reference made to an action taken with great effort that does not actually benefit the person or people directly performing the action. It is a reference to how americans are frequently and unjustly blamed for actions their government makes them perform, actions which do not benefit americans but in fact primarily are of benefit to more powerful non-national global organizations.
All the work, all the blame, none of the loot! You've been Yanked!
