Pretty much everybody already knew that the Iranians were helping in the rebel overthrow of the Yemeni government. Now there is proof, as the MSM has brought to the forefront.

What effect will this have on other current world events?

Two Iranian officers said to be commanding Shiite Houthi rebels were captured in Yemen, the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV reported, as dozens of people were killed Saturday in ground clashes and air strikes. Yemeni militia loyal to ousted president Abdurabuh Mansur Hadi provided the names of the captured Iranian soldiers, according to the Arabiya report.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday that Iran is supplying the Houthis. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denied on Thursday that his country was interfering in Yemen.

Lol, Saudi TV reported. Probably offered by Israel to help scuttle any agreement between US and Iran nuclear negotiations. Fool me once and all that.

So, NATO supplying arms to rebels in Syria is a good thing, Iran supplying arms to rebels in Yemen is a bad thing?

Okay.

I tend to agree due to the fact this whole deal started back in 2004
when the man the Houthi movement was named after was
assassinated by the installed Saudi puppet 11 years ago.

Houthi name sake assassinated in 2004

Yemen - a failed state

Vice News interviews some Yemeni and the long time
coming civil war there against a puppet regime fits similar
stories of other mid east nations that refuse to keep their
Saudi/US/Israeli puppet and refuse to stay conquered by
ISIS/ISIL/AL-CIA-da.

Also US troops holding up signs saying they will not be
AL-CIA-da's air force tends to throw things in question.

War in Yemen long term and ongoing

Yes, many Houthis belong to the Zaydi sect, a branch of Shiism. But Zaydism is rather distinct from the "Twelver" Shiism found in Iran and parts of Iraq — a theological difference that leaves the Zaydis closer to Sunnism, as Col. Pat Lang, a former U.S. defense attache once posted in Yemen, wrote in a piece cited by the Christian Science Monitor.

yes it is true they did capture two Iranians , and they were captured by the people of Yemen who refuse what the rebels are doing to their country , and yes Iran has been supplying the Houthies with weapons for a long time now , we've known that for a long time , the Houthies are just one tribe who wants to rule , and the other tribes wants the elected president Abd Rabu to come back .

I read it on Jerusalem Post a bit ago. Iran is doing in Yemen what it does to Israel. It supplies weapons to terrorists and in this case instructors too.

I'd bring up how many times Israel has been caught lying, but at this point
if people do not realize that all nations are lying quite often they want
to believe the propaganda and are beyond convincing.

The war in Yemen against Saudi puppets has been going on for a long time.

Long term ongoing war in Yemen

The Houthi movement is named after a man with that last name who
was assassinated by one of the Saudi puppets there.

This is old bad blood, a civil war going full tilt, and the mountain
tribesmen in the mountains are fed the hell up.

Yemen Topo map

Per capita guns in the world Yemen is number 3.

So if they think going in there is going to be a picnic,
they got another thing coming.

Arms per capita

I guess they could go bezerk with drones from Djibouti as that
is a US drone base that has been hammering Yemen for years,
but all it seems to have done is make them even more angry.
