Just saw that the Iranian-backed militias have pulled out of Tikrit in a protest over US airstrikes.

What a mess over there.

That could be an indication about theories that say the U.S. is not actually bombing ISIS targets.

Odd indeed.

They were ordered out because, they are not under any real control and getting in the way and the US would launch air support with them in action. They pulled out so the Iraqi's could get air support from the US. The US will not directly support Iranian backed forces.

Its not the best tactic at the races to back every horse in a race because you'll usually loose money doing so but you are guaranteed a winner from what I can see every dog in this stink has either Us equipment and covert or overt backing or training

That's a fact! Playing all sides. In everything. By design.

So currently the state of affairs in the Middle East goes something like this: The US is fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria in tacit conjunction with Iran to some degree. The US is not directly fighting against, but wants to depose the Assad regime in Syria which is backed by Iran. Iran is fighting via Shiite militia proxy against a pro-US established and Sunni dominated government in Yemen, while Saudi Arabia, our closest Arab ally, along with other Sunni Arab nations, the majority of which are close US allies as well, are now fighting this Iranian backed Shiite militia. Meanwhile, mostly everyone in the region is hoping that Iran is not allowed to reach nuclear breakout capability. The whole situation is a total mess, where murky intentions abound and the real chance of deepening hostilities exists around every bend. Even worse, this all could be just a weak preview of what is to come should Iran move forward with its nuclear program.

As for trying to identify a firm US foreign policy in the region, you can't, unless we are just going to go with the age old and dangerous adage: The enemy of my enemy is my friend. [Source]

The Enemy of My Enemy

ETA: I meant Houthis in the OP. I don't know why I typed Hafiz.
