    .

    America was kind enough to go in and take out Iran's biggest nemesis, which opened the door for them.

    Hey, did we ever get a Thank You card for that?

    Western nations continue to disrupt the Middle East with the intention of maintaining a destabilized envionment. This allows big oil (British Petroleum, especially) to continue to exploit their resources. The West fears unity in the Middle East, and Iran is the country with the greatest chance of doing so; it wants to return to its Persian heritage of greatness.

    The West shot itself in the foot when it invaded Iraq, the only regional power that kept Iran in check.

    The Middle East in 2015 was created by neocons under the administration of Bush/Cheney.

    the event constitutes IRANIAN aggression upon Saudi Arabia-----an ACT OF WAR. The Houthis have NO weapons other than those supplied (as in GIVEN) to them by Iran

    Of course, that´s nonsense. Do you remember yourself claiming TOWs are available at the black market? But where do the Saudis have their stuff from?

    The Saudi backed "Southern Movement" has now captured Mocha and the Houthis try to drive them out again. The "Southern Movement" is a socialist separatist movement, thus neither in support of Hadi nor of the Houthis. Looks like the Saudis support everyone who fights the Houthis. A weak or even divided Yemen is in their interest. And of course they don´t like this Iranian influence looming at their borders.

    But tell me, what is it that makes you such a big and frenetic cheerleader of Saudi Arabia?

    tainted---you post in a manner suggesting that you WANT to be taken as "naïve"--
    I should add-----I do not know what a "TOW" is----but I do know that DA HOUTHIS are not RICH------even for "Yemeni" they are virtually starving to
    death (as you know) -----they are being funded and ARMED by Iran -----as you know. ON THE OTHER HAND-----Da Saudis got lots of money------and armaments are ON SALE------in fact some of the most PROLIFIC arms dealers are-------middle eastern muslims
