McG work in (
For several years the government of Yemen a Sunni country has been fighting a civil war with Shia rebels who are trying to challenge the Government and introduce a shia country with an Islamic radical agenda. The rebels are heavily backed with moral and military support from the Iranian Government. The Government of Yemen is very weak and poor, and therefore is unable to exercise full control over the country. The situation is so bad that the last Jews in Yemen who have been there for over 3,000 years have been forced to leave in the past few months due to violence from the Shia rebels. (This tells us who you are).
The situation is deteriorating so rapidly that the Saudi (Sunni) Government has sent its military into Yemen to help the Yemeni Government. (Help what? Keep XOM's LNG Train functioning while keeping the pop w/o electricity on $955 per capita annual income?)
There have been reports that many Arab Sunni countries including Jordan, Morocco and Egypt have sent commando units to Yemen to help the government. (The US/Israel/UK Coalition of the Willing-And note not one of these is a functioning Democracy
The US is also helping Yemen financially and militarily to fight the rebels. (Plus aerial Bombing and Cruise Missiles with Spec Ops and of course CIA Paramilitary)
The ultimate goal of Iran is to impose a shia Government that will be obedient to it. (But as of yet, the Iranians have attacked no one while the US/Israel/UK can't remember a time when they weren't invading someone.)
While Yemen does not have much oil(BS and they have tons of NatGas which I'm sure is not far from the impoverished Houthi's).
a collapse of the government could have a large impact on oil prices. (Because then the wealth of the nation would be used to take care of it's own people)
Iran’s main goal in defeating Yemen would be to overthrow the Saudi Government which is the largest producer of oil in the war. (Non plussed. As we read further)
Even though Saudi Arabia has a majority Sunni population, if the Government collapsed Sunni Al Qaida extremists could take over who will align with the Shia government in Iran.(When the KSA
collapse, which has been a figment of ChevronBigOil since
oil was discovered in 1932 it can only benefit the poor
oppressed and women in the region.
But further, the US will takeover with all it's military might abandoning even the outer regions of it's empire to maintain
the King of Oil Fields.
Further, so how do the Sunnis all of a sudden unite with Shia's?
Will this be like Fundys uniting with Jews who seem to be the only ones keeping Sunni Shia apart according to your analysis
Are you Sunni, Shiite or Jewish (Tell us your political agenda):(Which of course tells us who you are and what your agenda is:
Keep the BAU Top .01% as wealthy as possible with the Bottom 90% Debt Slaves.
