This is Obama and Iran's war.
Valerie Jarrett is popping her champagne cork...and toasting Obama.




This must be what Obama meant the other year when he announced Yemen to be a shining example of his successful foreign policy.

Iranian cavers. It is really looking like Obama wants to hand over the region to Iran. It is also starting to look like Obama's reluctance to snuff out ISIS was to provide the excuse for the need for Iran to oppose them. The Saudis must really be wary of the classic toss under the bus Obama will attempt on them anytime as another touted Obama "success" story.

Yeah, and he said Somalia was as well. I almost coughed up my cornflakes hearing that.

On another issue related to the Saudi invasion of Yemen... when do western sanctions against KSA start?

I suppose it all depends on what your definition of 'success' is.
Valerie Jarrett is calling all the shots in the White House, where Foreign Policy is concerned.

Looking more like the begining of a large proxy war which may ignite the region. The vid talks about the war going on and how the Saudis with thier allies have started a bombing the territory of Yemen. Scary times we are living in folks. . . . .

American foreign policy at the moment reminds me of the kid who sneaks ahead of the pack bombs the hornets nest with rocks then watches the chaos as others march straight into it.Both sides are armed with US gear,the US is helping the Saudi's they are also aiding the Iranians in Iraq,is US foreign policy to fullfil Islamic eschatology,Im starting to wonder.

First lets remember Yemen is not nor has it ever been a real country. Yemen the nation consists of the capital. The rest of Yemen is divided amonts tribes that sometimes follow the Government and sometimes over throw it depending what rival tribes are doing. They just deals with whomever takes power because, frankly getting involved in Yemens interal conflicts is a waste of time. None of the tribes like the radicals so whomever takes power allows the US to killing them. Just as in this case. Of course with another civil war breaking out the US has pulled out until its over. On the plus side the radicals have been so beaten down even in a time of chaos they can not do much.

The Saudis have long had issues with Yemens lack of central control. Often raids across the border from Yemen are met with, we do not have control of those tribes response from Yemen. The Saudis again appear to trying to restore some order. I do not think that will work. The is providing intel of course and that should be the extent of US involvement until it can go back in after radicals.

I guess the Saudis feel with ISIS on the run in Iraq and the US about to bring Iran to heel they might as well try again in Yemen.

Now what we should be watching is Libya where Egypt is making more moves, while both the US and Egypt pretend that the US has nothing to do with it. Yet somehow Egypt's target lists are updated non stop and only one nation on earth can provide that kind of updated intel. Anyway the US likely to get more involved as the new AUMF (Authorization of Military Force) request allows the US to move against ISIS (well people using the name ISIS as ISIS is really only in Syria and Iraq) in places other than Iraq and Syria. Until that happens any assistance for Egypt in Libya will remain covert and denied.

So no chance it's not the same battle that has been going on for 1000 years?

Shiite hate the Sunni,

But that's all right because this is true

Everybody hates the Jews.

Apparently the U.S. is supporting Saudi Arabia's military operation in Yemen but have not elaborated on the kinds of support

You know, the typical support: US base, US command and control station, US drones and US hellfire missiles.

How could you possibly leave Iran out of your analysis? They, not random radicals, are alleged to be wanting Yemen.

That's because the Houthis rebels in Yemen are back by Iran. Iran has made statements of late about essentially dominating the middle east. Iran's actions have pissed of not only Saudi Arabia but Egypt as well as Pakistan, who just recently announced any efforts aimed towards Saudi Arabia from outside influence would draw Pakistan into the mix.


Maybe its just me buts its nice to see some of the ME countries taking actions on their own.

Iran supports one faction. The same faction that immediatly granted the US the right to keep troops and drones operating in Yemen. Just as the opposing faction did. Because both side do not want ISIS style radical taking advantage as they did in the Syrian Civil war. So even if Irans side were to win, and that is not likely now, their would be no real change strategicly speaking Yemen. The Saudis would not like it but, then the Saudis have had problem with many Yemens regimes. For the US, it is kind of win win. No matter who wins, the US will be back Yemen and Yemen's strategic value kept from an enemy. The US is supporting its allies of course but, not taking direct action. And while that may throw a kink in the Iran talks it is unlikely to change anything as Iran is out of options.

Think about this if you are Iran, you have US backed coalitions of US backed Arab states fighting on two fronts. Even with a nuke your not going to be able to stop them if they come for you next. Russia is weak and in trouble, China has no interest in getting involved anywhere and the only reason you ally Assad is even in control of part of Syria is you and your proxies forces have propped him up. The people your backing in Iran already invited the US in the front door. Not much out there for you if your Iran. The US is Irans only real option.
