Saudis contest Iran’s hegemony – and might just win | Asia Times

Saudi diplomacy in preparation for yesterday’s air strikes in Yemen is impressive. The Kingdom is reaching out to the Sunni world with apparent success: Pakistan, which only last week rejected any role in Yemen, is now considering a role in the Saudi-led operation against Iran-backed Houthi rebels. Pakistan is by far the largest Sunni state with a strong military and air force, and its alignment with the Saudi-led coalition is of decisive importance. Egypt has sent four warships to the Gulf of Aden to secure the southern approach to the Suez Canal, and may have deterred an Iranian naval presence. The Israel news service Aretz Sheva reports, “Senior editor of Saudi online paper Arab News, Siraj Wahab, has just tweeted that Egyptian ships forced Iranian retreat from Bab Al-Mandab strait near the Port of Aden.”

At this point, I think the best we can hope for from our current administration is to shut up and stay away from the grown-ups at the table.

  1. You should be so lucky, with comrade asshurt von selfie stick busy releasing nuclear secrets on what used to be an ally, and plotting their demise with the enemy of the ENTIRE civilized world.

  2. Zer0 is like the small kid that insists on playing with the adults and gets obnoxious about it when told to go play with the other kids. Zer0 is simply obnoxious anyway.
