The plan is for Trump to be impeached maybe, but not for that reason.

Ansar Allah and AQAP are pretty hardcore extremists who have taken half of Yemen, including the capital. Saudis are very moderate compared to them. Even with high tech weaponry Saudis are no match for them.

I'd say bombing the Minsitry of Defense is a bit of a step up.

But it's not. Going by Peeple's post above, it's in Houthi controlled territory. And they've been at war with the Houthi alliance for the last 2 years.

To put this in perspective, at least 10,000 civilians had already been killed (as of August of 2016). The war has also caused a famine in Yemen and a massive cholera outbreak that was set to have reached the milestone of 1 million infected by this month.


War - Famine - Disease - Death

Hmmmm Sounds familiar. Where did I see that mentioned...?

It's a good thing Trump will be impeached if he starts war with Iran.


Even far left media outlets have been priming the populace for a war with Iran.

Both sides of the isle beat the war drums these days. It's unfortunate.

In the aftermath of every major war in modern times?

Meh, it's likely just Sophia and the AI collective starting their takeover from SA ... what harm could come from the first robot citizen hooked into a private network with other AI? It's not like they could become truly conscious or anything... *queue Battlestar Glactica/Terminator music...

and should add that war and bombing sucks... hope the death and misery is kept to a minimum, though too late for that.

Plans for Middle East - U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark

People forget this

The plan to ruin 7 mideast countries.

Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Sudan

Out of those 7 only Iran hasn't yet been ruined.

They ruined Iraq, Libya, helped break up the Sudan, Yemen is a basket case, they destroyed Syria, and now their working to f up Lebanon. All that's left intact is Iran.

The new Prince Mohammed Bin Salman portrayed by the media as a moderate,the defence minister Trump sold $100 billion dollars worth of arms to earlier this year,whose war on Yemen has killed over 10000 civilians,caused a cholera epidemic of 1000 000 infected who is currently via a blockade starving 20 million Yemenis,and as reports come in is apparently reportedly torturing many of the 500 arrested in his purge,whose country finances 57 of the 61 listed terrorist organisations now this is the sort of guy like Pinochet the US can really get behind and support.





Quoted in case anyone misses it the first time.

Your post is spot on.

For now, though i don't think we'll go to all out war with them... Just mess with them by proxy.

Houthis in Yemen have been lobbing ballistic missiles into Saudi Arabia for years now, and the West barely acknowledges any of it; suddenly the latest one is the world’s top priority, with all the blame for Iran.

The Saudi military is just not a capable fighting force, and this is clearly evidenced by their asses being constantly kicked by some guerrilla fighters in Yemen on a daily basis. The Saudi regime has made some alarmingly interesting claims about near-future development goals for reshaping it’s economy, so I seriously hope they aren’t so foolish as to throw it all away by provoking Iran into an open conflict.

Yep. And Iran was still badly hurt with the sanctions, though they managed to overcome it by focusing on as much self sufficiency as possible. And during Obama's first year in office, Iran mysteriously had their "Persian Awakening/Green Revolution" which attempted to overthrow the Mullahs after Ahmadinejad won the presidency. After that failed, Israel and most of the GCC tried for the rest of the Obama presidency to get us to take down Iran.

All people would have to do is read things like "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm" and the PNAC "Project for the New American Century". They aren't classified, are freely available online, and tell a large part of what the actual plan is. Instead, people seemingly prefer to speculate and get the skewed interpretations (and outright lies) from commentators, politicians, shock jocks, and conspiracy theorist youtubers.

Both sides have the same goals, they just get there by opposing ideology . Whatever works is all that matters.

Here's how I see it. Yemen is incredibly poor. I think they're the poorest country on the Arabian Peninsula. However, their population is incredibly well armed (with small arms), with pre-war estimates usually saying that they were among the top 3 countries in the world in terms of guns per citizen (HERE, though there are plenty of other sources for this).

Saudi Arabia is incredibly rich. In 2016, they became the world's 3rd largest military spender (HERE). They coordinate and train militarily with major global powers like the US, UK, etc. And although Yemen and Saudi Arabia have roughly the same populations (25-30 million people), Saudi Arabia's military should've been able to dominate Yemen (on paper). Instead, the Yemen war has become a bogged down mess that the Saudis can't seem to win at all.

Now let's look at Iran. They have roughly 3 times as many people as Yemen (and Saudi Arabia for that matter), have a much more advanced military than Yemen, have a much more advanced civilian & industrial infrastructure, etc etc etc. If Saudi Arabia can't even beat their economically weak neighbor Yemen, then how can anyone expect them to defeat a much stronger Iran? Iran is larger, better equipped, more populous, and has much more treacherous terrain than Iraq. Yet the Saudis still had to get the West to take down Saddam for them because there's no way they could've done it themselves.

They were trying to kill Iranians. It was for the response of the attack on them. And it isnt over odds are very good that saudis will declare war on Iran. Id be surprised if it didnt happen by christmas. Several in royal family demanding it. Andwith the sarrests of the royal family recently they are concentrating power.

You forget a couple of things it would be a nightmare for Iran if saudis declare war.for one things are going good for Iran through proxies look at syria with hezbollah they are taling back the country. Iraq is currentlyseeking there support against Isis.

However saudis can decide they are losing the proxy wars,which they are. And go straight for the head of the snake.Iran is not eager to test Saudi Arabia’s modern and state-of-the-art military hardware, purchased from the United States at a price tag of billions of dollars. And attacking the birthplace of Islam, with the two most holy sites of Islam, in Mecca and Medina, would be akin to propaganda suicide in the Islamic World, with the potential for uniting every Muslim in the world against them.

One more thing the house of saud may decide this is the only way they can survive and that may be true. If they dontthere is a good chance they could lose power in saudi arabia
