    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?

    Yeah, especially when the terror is coming from Sunni Groups like AQ, Ansar al Sharia, and ISIS. We really should let them know that we know that they know who is who.

    The Saudis and other Sunni's have been watching Iran expanding its "empire" across the ME for years. The Saudi's were invited into Yemen by the Yemeni govt.

    Iran wants more representation as well, lets not pretend they haven't been arming the Houthis and AQ. Its going to be real hard for you to paint this as a one sided war.

    Conversely its real easy to show Obama was wrong when he called Yemen a success story.

    But your list of known terrorist organizations funded by Iran is wanting...... what about the Qods Force providing training to the Taliban in Afghanistan? Hezbollah, Hamas, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine based in Syria? And the arms and warfare Iran has provided Assad against the Syrian Rebels? And what about Palestinian Islamic Jihad? All these terrorist groups are funded by Iran. And everywhere they are there is death and carnage. Often killing innocent Muslims and our servicemen.

    The "Yemeni government" is holed up in the Southern port town of Aden. The Capital, Sanaa, fell to the Northern rebels weeks ago.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Obama has been worst on Foreign Policy and immigration, but it is really hard to pick a 'good side' in the Muslim Middle East/Carnage central.

    While supporting this coalition against Iran, we are also supporting the Shi-Raqi-Ranians in Tikrit, with Apache Helicopter gunships.

    Unless ISIS get's close to the Kurds, or someone we really care about, let the Shi-Raqi-Ranians take big losses in fighting ISIS.

    I mean, if kept in bounds, like Northern Iraq, this a DREAM War.
    Let em fight for the rest of the Decade/Century, til there are no radicals left on either side.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    True. It was only a matter of time, frankly before this happened. I'd like to think it will remain a local war, my big concern is with terrorism-terror thrives in such environments but keeping Iran and SA busy with each other is also a good thing.

    Picking sides in a civil war and you agree with the side that Obama's picking. What's your problem then, hmm?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
