Yemen at the crossroads Between Shiite Houthi rebels and Sunni Al Qaeda but Saudi Arabia is on the front lines!

The rebels are getting outside help and you know that is Iran's Revolutionary Guard as they endeavor to enforce Shiite dominance throughout the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is concerned with Al Qaeda in Yemen but they better focus on the big picture, all rebels while concentrating on the Shiite Houthi's seeking independence and their Iranian Revolutionary guard backers.

Yemen at the crossroads Between Shiite Houthi rebels and Sunni Al Qaeda

As you know, I talk about it often as I watch Bush's new Middle East (dis)order progress. He ignored Afghanistan so he could use the patriot acts powers to divert from Afghanistan to attack Iraq using the excuse of unseating Saddam so he could get in the Middle East to help Israel establish a buffer zone and establish a new middle east (dis) order or so Israel and Cheney thought. Bush at Cheney's urging made an abrupt shift in policy towards Syria, a shift that has now brought the entire Mideast region to the brink of war and chaos. Much worse than the hell on earth they created for Iraq. Did you ever read A clean Break

That plan was put together in 1996 for Israel. They were just waiting for an idiot to come along so they could implement their plan for the Middle East. Along came the life long follower and life long alcoholic loser Georgie Bush. I wish I could say the rest is History but this is still barely beginning and just beginning to take shape. All Bush did by ignoring Afghanistan and attacking Iraq was to guarantee a loss of everything and a complete Middle East and Asian Breakdown.

He freed Iran up to pursue her version of new middle East order by interfering wherever she could while Bush was doing the same thing with his Middle East Democratization program. I think you can see how successful Bush and Cheney were with chaos creating Middle East Democracy program but you are barely seeing the results they created in Iran.

The goal absolutely is to be the country who decides which direction the new Middle East (dis)order will take. Bush started it by attacking Iraq to get into the middle east to destabilize it and start the new middle east order the idiot said God told him to do now it will be up to Iran and Saudi Arabia at least up front fight it out whether this goes the Iranian Shiite way or the Saudi Arabian Sunni way and do not forget Israel!

I knew Iran was supplying and arming the rebels in Yemen but I did not realize how extensively! Yemen has known for a while that Iran was arming the rebels that pushed into Saudi Arabia recently. Before Saudi jets pushed them out with Yemen approval and attacked their strongholds.

Yemen as you know is a US and Saudi ally and we have heard in the past accusations of arms smuggling. Yemen authorities have started boarding Iranian ships suspected of smuggling arms to Houthi rebels. This will have consequences for the entire Middle East as Shiite leader Iran is getting increasingly confrontational with Sunni leader Saudi Arabia albeit up to now in proxy!

Once again the Iranian Revolutionary Guard is the instigator. Hey are ferrying weapons to Eritrea to Yemen. They are now avoiding the Arabian Peninsula as Saudi Arabia has instituted a blockade along the coast of Yemen. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has also transported Lebanese Hezbollah fighters to fight with the rebels.

The Yemeni Navy has also seized an Iranian crewed ship loaded with weapons off the coast of a rebel stronghold and of course and involvement was denied by Iran. Saudi Arabia can not tolerate this on its border. Heretofore all fighting has been third party, Shiite against Sunni. How long before the 2 keepers of their faces go head to head to enforce their version of a new Middle East order? Yemen Sees 'Mounting Evidence' Iran Is Arming Rebels

Both Iran and Saudi Arabia have been using Lebanon as their battlefront up to now able to avoid direct confrontation. Iran has pumped millions of dollars in supplies and arms much to the consternation of her suffering people while Saudi Arabia has been sup porting the Palestinian Authority.

So far there has been no direct confrontation. However I absolutely see what I have been warning about since Bush diverted from Afghanistan to attack Iraq and get back in the middle east to create a new middle east (dis)order! I do not give a damn what anyone says. Bush, Cheney and their Democratization program in an already historically unstable middle east set all of this and more in motion!

* The hell on earth Bush created for Iraqi’s will engulf the entire Middle East before it encompasses the entire world if we can not contain it. Under Bush we broke a long standing tradition of not adding fuel to the Middle East fire by supplying weapons. We are now, including advanced weaponry and missile defense systems. The Middle East breakdown Bush started armed and funded will continue under Obama. This up to now proxy war in the Middle East is under way. Wait, watch, and listen, this is not good for the world and our future!

Yemen is at the crossroads but Saudi Arabia and her oil fields are only one of the prime targets and on the front lines! Analysts are warning Saudi Arabia not to be overly triumphant after busting Al Qaeda cells planning a major attack, because the terrorist group will not be easily defeated and they better listen, this runs deep and wide as we keep saying and Yemen and Somalia are the hotbeds and breeding grounds for Al Qaeda and numerous other militant groups. This is still barely beginning!

There are numerous militant groups for Yemen to be concerned with but it is the Houthi's that are their primary concern along with food and running out of water. Saudi Arabia and her oil better also stay more than on their toes with Iran, the Revolutionary Guard, the Houthi's and Al Qaeda, then their is Al Shabab and the rest of the militants in Somalia. Stay on your toes!

I know no one has a crystal ball but What do you think would happen if we got out of the whole area. Short term for sure War, Israel would fall. The new Power broker would be Iran. And so all that comes to fruition. In a hundred years looking forward, what then.
It seems to me we have two options,destroy our enemy now or In a hundred years. You can't ration with them, there's always a way to get around sanctions, Hell we sanctioned the shit out of Cuba for over 50 years, where did that get us. Jim I look at it as mission impossible.

I think you hit on something there Jim. The real question in all of this is who is taking sides with whom? We mere observers are watching nothing more than a mask of a proxy war.
Saudi Arabia should have no worries as we are their army. What I'd like to know is who's in the background behind Iran? Could it be Russia? An easy way to check would be to check Iran's trading partners.

As for Israel we know that their only intention is to take what is left of Palestine. Just look at a map of the area over the last 25 or so years and you'll see an ever shrinking Palestine.

And Tim we know sanctions don't work because who supported Cuba the last 50 years? And now that Russia has pulled out where are they getting support? Chavez come to mind? And where does he get his mass of funds? If you guessed the U.S. you'd be right.

So you see it's still all about oil and money but once the oil runs out then things will change.

Tim you are right! People think I am a war monger but far from it. I have 3 sons who are career military and a fourth that at the age of 27 just decided he wants to also.

War and destruction is all I see. There are two roads into the future was and destruction or peace and prosperity and we will stupidly take the latter.

If we leave the Middle East we will be forced back for Israel as you are right or for Saudi Arabia as their proxy war with Iran goes virile!

Damn Demeur I didn't but reading your comment you would think I saw it before I answered Tim. We are in sync!
