Pro-Iranian Shia rebels in Yemen, who have overrun the American-friendly Yemeni government, has announced a ceasefire with government forces. The group has already sacked both the Defense and Finance ministries in the capitol of Sanaa.
If Yemen falls to the pro-Iranian rebels (probably will), Iran will then have a strategic footfold in that region, and could pose a major problem for the United States, as they could restrict shipping lanes between the Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea.
The U.S. will not let its interests be compromised, but the move by Iran is a pretty brazen one that smacks President Obama and his weak and ineffectual foreign policy right smack in the kisser.
Let’s see what Obama does now.
