    this was the place we needed to focus on, not libya.

    last year when obama was involved in Libya I criticized him not for getting involved, but just in the wrong place ( and minus congressional approval only becasue it was hypocritical of him to ignore them), this area is a hive of AQ and affiliate logistics, manpower, trng. and the danger to the last president that was pro western, pres. Saleh who stepped down under pressure, thats the area we should have been paying attention too.

    oh and Bahrain, which was undergoing at the same time massive pressure form shia in their country backed by Iran back then too, is now again, in trouble.....

    Qaddafi and all that was a distraction and a waste of time we didn't need to waste...and Syria? We have totally dealt ourselves out of any end game there, period. Its speaks to a confused mish mash of a FP with no focus.

    "Eighteen miles. That’s the width of the Bab el-Mandab passageway, the narrow stretch of ocean separating Djibouti from Yemen that connects the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean to the Red Sea. In strategic terms, this passage is crucial. Control the Bab el-Mandab passage and you control the eastern half of one of the most important shipping lanes in the world.

    That is exactly what Iran is looking to do. Few recognize it—but it’s happening under our noses. All you have to do is look at Yemen."
