    The real question is what this will do to US-Russian relations.

    As for a split-thats unlikely anytime soon-whatever happens this will be a drawn out conflict, the Yemenese certainly dont like foreign intervention and it could easily take a conflict to the mountains and deserts for years and years.

    And the driving powers Iran and SA, both have a real incentive to beat the other here. I can see Iran committing conventional forces here like they have in Syria if they need to. Its not going to end well.


    Putin says he will stand firm against the West. Then he is working trade with some South and Central American Countries. Is looking to reach and an arms deal for Mig 29s with Nicaragua.

    Plus now is accused of helping with some extra curricular activities with Argentina and the Falklands. Causing the Brits to speak out.

    Then Russia released this today. Putin is making money!



    Russian superhighway could connect London to New York.....


    Russia has unveiled ambitious plans to build a superhighway that, in theory, could make it possible to drive from London on one end to New York on the other. According to a report by The Siberian Times, the head of Russian Railways is asking the government to seriously consider his project dubbed the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development, the first modern transportation corridor that would link up the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean.

    Plans call for the construction of a new high-speed railway and the development of major roads that would span the length of Russia, link up with existing transportation networks in Europe and Asia -- and cross the Bering Strait. A network that would run about 20,000 km (12,400 miles) in length.....snip~

    Our biggest imports come from Canada, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Venezuela and Russia. Just looking at that list, it would have been real advantageous for Obama to have signed Keystone. You can thank a couple of Democrats for not giving the Senate the super majority to override Obama's veto. Relations with Russia, Venezuela and Mexico aren't exactly stellar either. Makes the words "drill baby drill" almost prophetic. Instead Obama is squeezing the fossil fuel industry with major EPA regulations and has spent billions in building windmills to save the drowning polar bears.

    It looks like the stage is being set for a Shiite/Sunni civil war and where is our president and John F-ing Kerry? Ready to give Iran their blessing for a nuclear weapon and the Sunnis/Egyptians/Israelis feel like the U.S. has betrayed them.

    Thats a good point, I think they are always more afraid of conventional states than they are about terror. The US, being the big dogs, actually see the reverse many times.

    Lol. The Sunnis feel like the US has betrayed them.

    Agreed, it should be a no-brainer to be less dependent on foreign oil but the left is bound by its environmentalism and anti-capitalism.

    We are now in the position where our President is aiding one sect in one region (led by one regional power) and doing the precise opposite in another.

    What strange days, only 2 terms of hope and change could do this.

    Saudi has mobilised a Sunni coalition against the Shia Huthi rebels, who are taking advantage of the military incompetence of the Sunni Yemeni government. They want more representation in what has been a relatively non-sectarian political scene.
    Saudi are merely pushing Wahabism, increasing division to their own advantage.
    Don't work out, work in.

    As for sunni states (not terrorist groups) the US has always been generally friendly to Sunni's-and Israel for that matter.
    Obama wants to upset that balance, his dogma preaches that it will lead to peace.

    Well hows that working out?
