From Yemen to Turtle Bay

Off the coast of Yemen and at the UN Security Council we are seeing the strategic endgame of Barack Obama’s administration. And it isn’t pretty.

Since Sunday, Iran’s Houthi proxies in Yemen have attacked US naval craft three times in the Bab al , the narrow straits at the mouth of the Red Sea. The Bab al controls maritime traffic in the Red Sea, and ultimately control the Suez Canal.

Whether the Iranians directed these assaults or simply greenlighted them is really beside the point. The point is that these are strikes on the US. The Houthis would never have exposed themselves to US military retaliation if they hadn’t been ordered to do so by their overlords.
