ISIS started its career as a ragtag rampaging jihadists. It could have been nipped in the bud. But Obama was adamant in not ordering boots on the ground. He knows how Saddam’s elite, well armed and equipped, Royal Guard, had to flee before Americans. So he ordered air strikes which are nothing but pin pricks. Obama facilitated the ISIS to establish a caliphate which now includes large swathes in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and now Yemen. He has allowed ISIS to capture oilfields. Sophisticated American arms, tanks and SUVs given to Syria and Iraq are now in the hands of ISIS. He has been flirting with terror state Iran and he is primarily responsible for the rising influence of Iran: its nuclear ambitions; its sway over the Iraqi government; its support for the militant groups Hezbollah and Hamas, and its alliance with Syria. It is against this political backdrop that we have analyse the events in Yemen which look quite gloomy for Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Iran was OK until the CIA with operation TPAJAX in 1954 threw out a democratically elected Mosshadegh and America installed the Dictator the Shah with his executioners the Savak who where every bit as bad of not worse then the Saddam.

Yes, your memory DOES fail you. Unless you think Ronald Reagan bombing Qaddafi (1986), and George W. Bush invading Hussein (2003)…. and Ronald Reagan supplying weapons to the Ayatollah of Iran…. were somehow revolutions of the “Left.”

Think harder next time :)

Oh where’s my memory – monarchy falls in Libya – decades of the cretinous colonel Qaddafi followed by Islamist terrorism. This is the legacy of the Left and its revolutions around the world.

I am glad Europe and the rest of the civilized world dumped that pointless religious type argument about 300 years ago. Now if these people can learn to evolve, we might make something of the world in terms of the Middle East.
