The Great Sorting Out: Middle East Aflame

USA has No Plan to Deal with New World Dis-Order

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi (R) stands with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud (C), and Yemen's President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi


The Middle East in flames

  • And who’s in the ascendant – the forces of reaction or resistance?

  1. Cross Talk: It is simply wrong to make this a Shia-Sunni sectarian fight and point to Saudi Arabia and Iran. Saudis are the gladiators working with Israel and US. The most important part of all this is full control of Yemen as it controls a very important maritime passage, a choke-point. Israel would like full control of Yemen (through proxies) to give it access to the Indian Ocean via the Red Sea in its wars of aggression and expansion.

    Additionally, Palestinians are Sunni. Why is Iran supporting Sunnis if this is a Sunni-Shia divide and only between Saudis and Iran?
