Saudi Arabia battles terrorists in Yemen -- while Obama sits on the sidelines, courting Iran

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Not long ago, Obama was bragging about the great job he was doing, keeping the peace in Yemen.

Since he made that announcement, however, Obama pulled out U.S. special forces. Not surprisingly, terrorists have been wiping out people throughout that country ever since.

Saudi Arabia is now attacking those same terrorists in Yemen, doing a job Obama either couldn't do or didn't want to.

No one wants to side with the Saudis, but at least they've deployed a huge number of troops and assembled an impressive coalition.

Meanwhile, America sits on the sidelines, and makes deals with Iran.

Saudi Arabia is a bigger threat to world peace then ISIS. This sharia law ruled country routinely imprisons, tortures and beheads it’s own people for crimes including “apostasy” and “sorcery”. They secretly support and fund terrorist organizations, there’s a reason 15 of the 19 hijackers of the 9/11 terrorist attack were citizens of Saudi Arabia. Canada should be condemning the actions of this evil country but instead we’re selling them billions of dollars in military equipment. Quite frankly, it’s appalling.

Well the Devil Barack is making deals with the devils in Iran. There is no alternative for Israel now. They must wage war with Iran now or face annihilation within a decade. Even Kissinger has come to this conclusion.

Peter Babich, I agree.

Don’t let it scare you Maurice. You need not concern yourself with worldly things. He’s not what he says he is. But trust that this is part of a plan not easily understood by simple men

I think we should render Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair to Yemen so they can resolve this in the Humanitarian methods they espouse but will not be allowed to return until all Muslim Terrorists have given up all their weapons and surrendered.

Obama claims to be a Christian yet he denigrates Christian doctrine and scriptures, refers to the Qur’an as “Holy”, never once referring to the Bible as “Holy”, bows and kowtows to the most radical Islamist dictators, and, thumbs his nose at western democracies and the American people. He’s no more a Christian than I’m a duck! I’m not saying he has to be, but why the hypocrisy? He has an end game in mind. I don’t know what it is, but it scares the hell out of me.

Hey yeah! I say let the Saudis get some. Their men can bleed and die for their country and come home in body bags.
I’ll watch from North America…

The world is fundamentally changed since Obama has come to power in the USA. The narsisstic, golfer and hollywood star has diminished their image in the world and the dictatorships and jihadists are taking over in the void created by the US. Obama has very few good traits, golfing, hollywood star, selfie shooter and childish tantrum thrower such as releasing the Israeli nuclear plans because of critism of his plan from Prime Minister Netanyahu. The middle east is in shambles, Russia is exploiting Eastern Europe, the terrorists are about to get the bomb and Obama golfs like Nero who fiddled. It may not be long before Rome burns.

Terry and Keith either way, isn’t this telling us where Obama’s allegiance is?
Nothing in the middle east makes any sense except that the barbarity there and in North Africa should have been stopped long ago. Islam is always at the center of it and should be banned, as it stands, in the entire world. So with Obama’s siding with islam and Iran, yeah, I’d say that’s more than a little concerning especially with the USA being our neighbor to the south.

Anyone who’s not with Christ is antichrist. There have been many throughout history. Obamas just another pawn

The Anti-Christ is here NOW
The anti-Christ is not a person.
The anti-Christ is a movement, and it is ISIS.
The people who are fighting for the anti-Christ (Isis),
Believe they are fighting for the Prophet Mohammed.
The anti-Christ (Isis), is spreading it’s tentacle’s
through out the middle east, Asia, Europe, Africa,
and North America.
The anti-Christ (Isis), Must be stopped and Now.

Keith, I think you’re referring to statement Obama made in 200y, about growing up in Jakarta, when he described his childhood memory of the call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” Not quite the same thing. Are you a little less “scared” snow?
commented 2015-03-26 15:36:08 -0400
Obama is a scary person. Can he be trusted? I don’t know. He recently made the statement that “The Islamic call to evening prayer is the most beautiful sound in the world”. Having never herd it don’t know, he may well be right but it sure makes one wonder where he is at.

What’s encouraging is Islamist nations are now responding to the radicalism that threatens their own stability. ISIS and the other insurgent groups pose a much bigger threat to the governments of the Middle East than to the nations of Europe or North America, but so far they’ve been complacent, entirely happy to let the West handle the fighting. But it seems Egypt, Jordan and now Saudi Arabia have figured out that this problem is in THEIR backyard.

Why should the United States or any western country get involved in the sectarian war in Yemen? Why should we care if Sunni’s are killing Shia and vice versa? The only reason why Saudia Arabia is getting involved is because the Shia are getting the upper hand. Saudia Arabia and it’s Sunni allies are bombing Shia militia’s. They are not going after Al Qaeda or ISIS forces in Yemen (the Saudi’s FUND these groups). It has been the United States that has targeted these Sunni terrorist groups in the past. I don’t know how anyone could view the Saudi’s as the “good guys”.

About time the House of Saud got into the game! Not until it threatened their border, mind you. Still, i’m with Ezra in rooting for the decisive storm offensive. Iran has been funding the Houtis who took over the government of Yemen some months ago and there is no doubt Saudi Arabia is in danger from these pro-Iran invasions.
