Don’t worry, Obummer says he has it all under control.
But that’s what worries us most.
While you were watching ISIS, Iran took Yemen
Iran continues to destabilize the Middle East
The Houthis, Iranian backed rebels have taken control of Yemen’s capital, Sanaa.
The capital of Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest and perhaps most chronically unstable nation, has new masters. Shiite rebels man checkpoints and roam the streets in pickups mounted with antiaircraft guns.
The fighters control almost all state buildings, from the airport and the central bank to the Defense Ministry.
Only a few police officers and soldiers are left on the streets. Rebel fighters have plastered the city with fliers proclaiming their slogan — “Death to America, death to Israel, a curse on the Jews and victory to Islam” — a variation of a popular Iranian slogan often chanted by Shiite militants in Iraq and supporters of Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
The comparison to Hezbollah is apt as Reuters is reporting that the Houthi are blocking the appointment of Yemen’s president.
Abdel-Malek al-Ejri said Hadi had suggested five names at a meeting of his advisors, who represent various political parties in Yemen. When the aides failed to agree on a candidate Hadi suggested his presidential office director, Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak, as a compromise.
“But we did not agree, and the matter is still under consultation,” Ejri told Reuters.
Similarly, Hezbollah has kept Lebanon’s politics unsettled preventing the appointment of a President.
