    Egypt FM: Cairo to send ground forces to Yemen if needed.....


    In a show of Egypt’s fully-fledged support to the Saudi-led operation against the Houthis in Yemen, Egyptian foreign minister Samih Shoukri said Cairo was willing “to send ground forces if necessary” during an Arab League conference in Sharm al-Sheikh.

    Egyptian officials have said four warships entered Suez en route to Gulf of Aden to give further support to Operation “Decisive Storm,” which was ordered early Thursday in response to President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi’s request in face of Houthis advancing toward the southern city of Aden, where is he currently based.

    The officials added that the ships will take part in operations “to secure” the strategic waters that control southern access to the Suez Canal......snip~

    not everywhere but enough public buildings have been bombed out..and the place is a wreck..
    I don't know if airlifts would be any more effective then the bombing by SA, and AQAP is taking advantage of the chaos -
    they had a prison break recently, and are expanding territory.

    That's our real concern - AQAP, although I personally am worried about a proxy war and Iranian hegemony, I agree there isn't much we can or should do about it..
    Somehow that Sunni coalition has got to do it, Pakistan (close defense allie of SA) was ready to, but it's Parliment voted no..because of it's Shia population.

    It's a cluster for sure, and the region is going to have to do it this time without calling in the calvary (US).
    There is no appetite for any US involvement, not do I think we should do so..

    hey Amigo..
    I guess the fly in the ointment was Pakistan then? SA can't let this stand though, even with that border fence a few of it's border guards were recently killed.

    Plus the Houthi do run some cross border raids. The problem seems to be SA backing..whom was it? Saleh or Hadi?
    either way that isn't a viable strategy - the country hs been in a civil war one way or the other since 1969

    SA is going to have to really go in and install some kind of interim proxy gov't to stop this..but if they do, they are committed
    and they know they can't turn to us...
    So I don't really see any course of action except a real Sunni coalition and that doesn't seem to be happening either.
    They keep saying they will go in, but man when they do it's going to be a bloodbath and a long term guerilla war after the
    shooting war..*yikes*

    I am always glad to see people with your political views display the kind of reasoning and civility that is their trademark. I look forward to more or your keen, thoughtful commentary.

    One way we could maintain a strong military would be for people like you to join.
    Was anyone calling for a land war against either Italy or Germany in 1935? If so, historians have never recorded it--but maybe you have secret knowledge.

    Yeah they don't care which terrorists or group into Radical Islam. They will bring it to them. MB, ISIS, Hamas, or AQ looks like Egypt is tired of them all. Now they say let us capture some Iranians in Yemen.

    gotta love el-Sisi..

    It's too bad BO invited a bunch of EMB to the State dept last year and suspended the arms sales after the "coup"
    Now Sisis is more then willing to deal with the Russians, and another Obama "legacy" is letting them in
    when they were mostly bottled up in Syria (aside from the Mediterranean fleet) from before this.

    He's such a nebbish as my ex-Jewish g/f would say..lol

    It has only been only a few years since we heard the same inaccurate, "Hitler & the Holocaust" rhetoric & hyperbolic cheerleading from the pro War crowd or their deceived disciples. They were mistaken then as well as now.

    What we didn't find in "WMDs"etc, we DID find in mangled, mutilated, burned & traumatized young Americans who continue to struggle with missing limbs & the cold-sweats of horrific nightmares.

    Because of their inaccuracy, comparisons of Iran with Nazi Germany are as tiresome as they are factually flawed. It's impossible to name one country that Iran has annexed, attacked or invaded nor is Iran's old Jewish community persecuted. While their government is unappealing & fraught with feigned bellicosity, its leaders are neither irrational nor suicidal.

    There is nothing alarming about Iran's ships joining in the posturing and surveillance near Yemen. The only increased danger is the heightened opportunity for a "False Flag" operation or provocation from a pro War element. If there is a lethal exchange, it will not have been intentionally caused by Iran.

    US & Iranian Navy personnel have assisted each other in Search-and-Rscue operations, are used to & welcome opportunities to meet, exchange small gifts etc. Lemon & sugar coated pistachio nuts are a favorite Iranian treat among US sailors & Marines.

    All it takes is a visit to Iran to find that they have a fondness for the American people. It is the egregious double-standard endemic to US Mid East policy that they justifiably resent.



    Thanks

    Once again, I would like to recommend Andy McCarthy's very fine book, entitled "The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America." Leftists' dislike of America, Jews, and western civilization in general gives them common cause with Muslim jihadists. It is no coincidence that the anti-American leftist now disgracing the White House has been so chummy with Jew-haters, or that he has been far more hostile toward Israel than any other U.S. president.
