Apparently, the larger framework of Trump's support for Israel is a coalition of armed forces to defeat ISIS throughout the region - and to push Iran back inside its borders. With "consequences that are unforeseen," the prospect of a long-term, international army is a Trump-Putin "earthquake" that is "sending tremors through Middle East."
There are six reasons why Trump might find Yemen a compelling battlefield to engage Iran.
Iran's vision for its future is vast. The "territory" it forsees as its own will require naval bases in Syria, Yemen, the Indian Ocean, and on manmade islands. Establishing these bases, it says, is "ten times more important than nuclear power."
A high ranking Iranian official states that his country's missiles are being manufactured in several Middle East countries. Why? To address "the Israeli threat."
Surprisingly, the open powder keg in Syria has not yet exploded into a regional or global war. But it still could. Unfortunately, another trigger for such a conflict is developing to Israel's southeast. Via Yemini rebels, Iran is making moves to block the chokepoint of international shipping off the southern coast of Yemen. Missiles have been fired at US vessels. This morning the US fired back.
