Western propaganda?

Good. Show me an Al Qaeda cell or ISIS brigade in Iran. They don’t have any. You know why? Because Iran kills them. Saudi Arabia funds ISIS. Iran kills ISIS. Iran is the only guy cleaning house over there.

Iran will win in the end.
And Iran will dominate the region.

Zaydi’s are a kind of Shiites. They ruled most of Yemen for more than a thousand years until 1962. They constitute 35 to 40% of Yemen’s population and Saleh is one of them. Most of the Houthi’s – a political movement – are Zaydi too, but some are Sunni.

Hadi is a Sunni who was more or less imposed on Yemen by the Gulf countries after the Arab Spring protests. His selection was sealed with “elections” that he won with North Korean figures – being the only candidate.

Yemen has a long tradition of local uprisings. But the main reason for the Houthi’s now is the rise of Al Qaeda and its hate propaganda against the Zaydi’s. Al Qaeda and the Wahabi ideology are massively subsidized by Saudi Arabia and Hadi gave them freedom to operate.

Pakistan is nuclear now, and that’s the craziest planet on earth. Has the sky fallen?

But, the amateur new leaders of Saudi Arabia are making absolute fools of themselves with their idiotic attack on Yemen. They have no idea what they are doing and they have no clear goal or strategy. They just bomb everything in sight. It is utterly idiotic and Obama just stands around and applauds the destruction and wanton killing of innocents people. Actually, he adds more fuel to the fire by providing more weapons to the stupid Saudis. It is really amazing.

its a bit too see the Obama ppl. chances are you have arrived where you are, i.e. the saudi bashing, out of desperation for protecting iran and obama’s deal.

For me personally i would love to see Iran go nuclear (which in itself is bad) but i’d love to see the follow-up Obama humiliation and the domestic violence among DEMs which would far out-benefit iran’s nuclear breakout.

The princes should be assassinated.

I think S.A. will win here, they have wisely avoided sending 200k troops like US sent into iraq, successfully blockaded iran from getting in. the saudies are actually pretty safe in Riyadh, the houtis will run out of supplies and support, melt away and some will-reconcile with the lure of money and some will die out.

its possible that i am wrong, its also possible that SA will show the usa just about how much less was required to win how much more, and in doing so show the incompetence of Bush/Obama.
