Iranian Interference in Yemen Escalating

 According to Yemeni and US officials, Yemeni forces, assisted by the US Navy, intercepted a ship carrying a large shipment of weapons on January 23 2013, which US officials believe were heading from Iran to the Huthis in Yemen. The Yemeni Government said that the weapons included military-grade explosives, missiles, shells, and bomb-making equipment.

As many of you know by now my prime concern in Yemen was the interference by Iran in trying to get Shiite dominance there. Bush 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 their chaos creating Middle East Democracy program but you are barely seeing the results they created in Iran. 

The goal now 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 had known for a while that Iran was arming the rebels that pushed into Saudi Arabia before Saudi jets pushed them out with Yemen approval and attacked their strongholds 4 years ago.

Yemen as you know is a US and Saudi ally and we have heard in the past accusations of arms smuggling. In 2009 Yemen authorities 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 was and is the instigator. They 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 had 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?

2009 Yemen Sees 'Mounting Evidence' Iran Is Arming Rebels 

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.

* It is looking like Yemen is going to be the first country down! The Middle East is right to be concerned. Yemen is going through severe domestic turmoil due to the violent activities of Al Qaeda, Houthi rebels in the north and the Southern Movement in the south. The remaining Jews are threatened with slaughter by the Shiite, Yemen has long been running out of water. How much longer can Yemen hold on? What is next?
