Yemen Conflict (Randy Black, USA, 06/16/15 4:16 pm)

Massoud Malek (15 June) dodges important facts regarding the ongoing dust-up in Yemen.

Massoud continues to attack the US for providing satellite intelligence support to the Middle East's coalition fighting the Houthi (Shia) invasion of Yemen while ignoring the other nine nations that are also involved in the effort to defeat the invaders of Yemen.

The Sunni coalition: Egypt, UAR, Bahrain, Jordan, Sudan, Qatar, Kuwait, Morocco and others including Pakistan that support Saudi sovereignty. It's my thought that Iran is the de facto bad guy in this matter.

While Houthi (Shia) are the actual fighters who've invaded Yemen, they receive open support from Iran.

Adding to the tragic war, Yemen is also the stronghold of Al-Qaeda. Finally, there is the matter of ISIS that openly declared its intention to take over the world.

Yet, Massoud would have the world believe that the US, Britain, Pakistan and others are the bad guys in all of this.

Sidebar: For what it's worth, most of the Saudi senior government is educated in the US or the UK. I've omitted the degrees from Saudi universities of the resumes of those senior Saudi officials who have not studied abroad.

JE comments:  This list of US degrees seems to bolster Massoud's argument that the Saudis and the Americans are of one voice (and one fist) in the Yemen war.
