    We are helping the Saudis fight the Iranian backed rebels in Yemen, but we are also doing a Nuke deal with Iran.

    Please explain how this makes sense?



    DUBAI—The U.S. said on Tuesday that it is expediting deliveries of munitions and building on intelligence and logistical aid that it is already providing for the Saudi-led military campaign against Houthi rebels in Yemen.

    Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken told reporters at a briefing in Riyadh that Saudi Arabia “is sending a strong message to the Houthis and their allies that they cannot overrun Yemen by force.”

    The support, which includes deliveries of precision-guided munitions, comes almost two weeks after a Saudi-led coalition of mostly Arab states began a campaign of airstrikes against the Shiite-linked Houthis.

    In Washington, Col. Steve Warren, the chief Pentagon spokesman, said the shipments were “a combination of pre-existing orders made by our partner nations and some new requirements as they expend munitions.” He didn’t provide details.

    Houthi militants overtook Yemen’s capital, San’a, in September and took control of the government in February, leading the Saudi-backed President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi to flee to Saudi Arabia.

    One day, muslims around the world will praise obama for what he has laid the groundwork for. Did you know that the quran encourages muslims to deceive in order to achieve the goals of islam? Like as in telling a nation half full of dipshits that elected you that you are a Christian! Duplicitous is the perfect word to describe this administration.

    Makes it even easier to help them out when you know that. Really the best way to deal with them is to keep them all killing each other Sunni vs Shia then us. Problem is they still have most of the oil.

We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
