    Re: Saudi Arabia Begins Air Campaign in Yemen

    Read reports that the Saudi's have lost 2 jets, and Egypt has committed military support to yemen.

    Maybe its better to get a war out of the way before the Iranians get nukes...or a good time for a strike on Iranian nuclear facilities.

    Listening to CNN.
    There is a 10-country Sunni coalition, including, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, (even Pakistan) with 100 Warplanes and 150,000 Troops ready to oust the Houthis and Occupy Yemen.

    Saudis are rightly acting to protect their border from Iran-proxies.
    I love when people Emptily claim: "Iran hasn't invaded anyone for 200 years"..
    yet they control 4 Capitals now.

    Of course, it is said the coalition is using Our intelligence, satellites, etc, for targeting, as those countries just don't have it.

    EDIT:
    Oil has been firm the last few days, and tonight, because of this situation, despite the glut and yesterday's report of such.

    Apparently the US has given intelligence support as well. Operation "Decisive Storm".

    US is providing air support for Iranian troops fighting ISIS in Tikrit. I don't see how the US can fight against Iran in Yemen and support them in Iraq. That's just too confusing. So, maybe that's why the US pulled out of Yemen and let the Saudi's and their coalition move in?

    If CNN is good enough for mbig, it's good enough for me.
    This overnight live version has always been "straight" news with zero snark, just like Wolf.
    If I can watch Bret Baier's Special Report;
    Could become a direct war soon enough.
    Looks like it's already a war.
    I'm sure our MIC will be appreciative.
    As well as our soldiers who won't have to die there .

    US isn't exactly buddy buddy with Iran, even if its fighting ISIS in Iraq. Apparently there's concern that Iran may retaliate in Iraq for these attacks.
    But we are indeed helping SA. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/...0ML0YC20150326

    Question is what happens after the airstrikes? Ground troops will settle the conflict, not air.

    Yeeeaaahhh I suppose you could word it that way. It was the Iraqi government that requested US airstrikes.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    This world-wide Sunni/Shia civil war certainly had its fire stoked by Maliki.
    I don't put it on either of the last two Presidents--blame is useless--**** happens.
    At least the new guy in Afghanistan looks much better than his predecessor .
