    Yemen crisis: Houthi rebels 'announce takeover'

    Yemen's Shia Houthi rebel movement has announced it is taking over the government and dissolving parliament. In a televised statement, the group said a five-member council would act as the president for an interim period.
    The group took control of the capital Sanaa in September, forcing the resignation of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi in January.
    The announcement comes after the failure of UN-brokered peace talks.
    The Houthis set a Wednesday deadline for political parties to reach an agreement on ending the country's political turmoil, threatening to act unilaterally otherwise.
    The rebels move would mark "a new era that will take Yemen to safe shores'', the statement said, according to Associated Press.

    Yemen is now under rebel control and the formal government has been dissolved. This should get the Saudi's attention and should shake up the ME as if it needed more shaking. What are the implications for Saudi Arabia now with a compromised country to their South and ISIS to their North.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Perhaps SA shouldn't have been supporting terrorism all these decades, maybe their ass is going to get bit now, too!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
