The highly touted “success” of Yemen isn’t all that Hussein Obama claimed it to be in September when he used it and Somalia as examples of his “strategy’s” effectiveness. Now Yemen has fallen into al-Qaeda and Iranian control, and as everyone except those within the regime and the State Department now recognize, America is in a lot of trouble. It is precisely because of the failed American “leadership.”
John Bolton notes that this was expected, particularly because Obama backed the Yemeni President’s opposition. He says, “Now we’ve got an Iranian surrogate at the back door of the oil producing monarchies of the Arabian Peninsula threatening the Saudis, threatening the Emirates and others. And of course we’ve got al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in the territory of what used to be Yemen.”
He continues, saying, “Yemen now joins the long and growing list of states that have simply ceased to exist in the Middle East and North Africa.”
Bolton says the fact that the embassies had to close as the bad guys were moving in on us provides more evidence that the Obama regime has no idea what it’s doing, that the situation was much worse than they recognized.
He says this is “As visible a reflection as you can have of the collapse of American influence where we can’t even protect our own embassy.” He also notes that “the country is dissolving into civil war.”
He believes the situation is serious, with the Saudis and other Sunnis now facing a threat both from Iran, across the Persian Gulf, and now the Houthi’s from their rear. He characterizes the events as “American influence goes down, Iranian influence goes up,” adding that “this is a serious threat to the continued existence of all the monarchies.
