Our Coalition Ally Saudi Arabia Leads Airstrikes Against Yemen Rebels & Our Other Coalition Ally Iran…

Saudi warplanes led a new offensive against Houthi rebels in Yemen on Thursday, as Gulf Arab allies and others in the region rushed to aid internationally backed President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

Officials said the airstrike campaign that began late Wednesday was targeting military installations that had been seized by the Houthis as they continued their weeks-long push through the southern part of the country.

Jordan, Egypt and Sudan confirmed their forces were taking part in the operation, while Pakistan’s foreign office said it is considering a request from Saudi Arabia to send troops.

    I vote to let the different sides kill each other.

    But one problem with that is that Yemen sits on a choke point for oil, through the Suez canal to Europe. Having said that, the powers-that-be could control the choke point without getting involved with the bloody mess called Yemen.

    A conundrum for Obama.

    There is something Biblical about the enemies of the Jewish nation turning on and slaughtering each other. I think the Prophets had something to say about this phenomenon.
