Yemen Falls to Iranian Back Houthis

Updated on February 13, 2015

If you believe in the Armageddon scenario during the End Times, when nuclear weapons will light up the Middle East, then you are seeing it unfold slowly over years. This is the phase that the Bible states is a "rumor of war", that is, undeclared war. The rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria was a shock. The collapse of Yemen's government was slowly brewing and America was powerless to alter it. The rush to escape the US Embassy resembled what happened in Saigon in 1975. Vehicles were left, weapons dismantled, files burned. As the Iranian Houthis took over the government fell after billions of US dollars were spent to prop the former government up. The Houthis are chanting, "Death to America".

The Houthis have received training from Hezbollah and weapons, Iran's other proxy military force. Yet, al-Qaeda remains strong in Yemen. The only good news is that Iran, like America, wants to destroy them. The next war in Yemen might just be between the Houthis and al-Qaeda for control of the country. Yet, in a larger picture, the Armageddon might involve Saudi Arabia (Sunni) and the West to destroy the Iranian Shiite growing list of countries it has proxy forces in. After Yemen fell, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Force said that this was proof the Islamic revolution was spreading.

Who is happy about the collapse of Yemen? Iran is because the Houthis are shiite like them and they have provided some support and probably guide the Houthis govern Sanaa, the capital. Al-Qaeda is elated because it creates an unstable and less equipped government to deter their own operations against them. They would love to control all of Yemen.

What are the good things? America and Iran become more allied in its fight against al-Qaeda and ISIS. The Houthis just might oust Iranian influence. But none of the Sunni states in the region want Iran to control Yemen.

During the Cold War, the threat was the spread of Communism or the domino effect. The USSR did this like Iran spreads Islam now, winning the hearts of minds of people, providing aid, etc. It worked many times. Today, the West is fighting the spread of radical Islam. ISIS uses a heavy handed over the head method, like the Nazis; while Iran uses the more subtle approach and dilutes the how radical it is.

      Chaos really comes about when the US does not take the lead in foreign affairs. Obama is simply horrible.

      With all the reports I've watched, never heard once that they were backed by Iran. Good job pointing it out. Another important article. Voted up and shared.
