Yemen Conflict Could Trigger World War 3

Yemen Conflict Could Trigger World War 3

After launching airstrikes in Yemen last Thursday, the Saudi Arabia-led coalition is reportedly sending 150,000 ground troops to fight the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels. The conflict in Yemen is much deeper than it appears on the surface, and if it continues to escalate, it could lead us to a World War 3. Sunni Saudi Arabia aims to check the growing influence of Shiite Iran in the region. Security experts believe that Riyadh cannot afford to see another Shiite nation in the Middle-East and it will do everything possible to defeat Houthis in Yemen.

Wider Middle-East conflict may escalate into World War 3

Gulf diplomatic sources told Reuters that the Saudi-led airstrikes were planned to last a month, but could extend up to six months. Yemen conflict is pushing the Middle-East to a much bigger conflict. The Saudi versus Iran confrontation has created a lot of confusion and unpredictability. The U.S. is supporting Iran-backed militants in Iraq, but opposing Iran-backed rebels in Yemen.

Hedge Fund Launches Jump Despite Equity Market Declines

Last year was a bumper year for hedge fund launches. According to a Hedge Fund Research report released towards the end of March, 614 new funds hit the market in 2021. That was the highest number of launches since 2017, when a record 735 new hedge funds were rolled out to investors. What’s interesting about Read More

The UAE and Egypt are part of the Saudi-led strike in Yemen, but are bombing Libyan factions backed by Qatar and Turkey, who fully support the Saudi offensive in Yemen. The conflict in Syria is mainly the result of competition between regional powers to outmaneuver each other, says Liz Sly of The Washington Post. In short, Middle-East countries are frenemies, depending on which conflict you are talking about.

Saudi Arabia considers itself guardian of the Sunni interest in the Middle-East. But over the past few years, Sunni influence has been shrinking as Shiite Iran expands its influence, said Mustafa Alani of Gulf Research Center. Iranian-backed rebels have played a crucial role in propping up President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Iran-backed militias control more territory in Iraq than the Iraqi army. In Lebanon, the Iranian-supported Hezbollah movement reigns supreme.

By launching airstrikes in Yemen, Saudi Arabia has sent a clear signal that it will no longer tolerate Iran’s growing influence. So, the Yemen conflict is not just about Yemen, it’s more about changing the power equations. How could it lead to a World War 3? It seems unlikely on the surface. But Iran is not the one to stay silent as Saudi Arabia bombs Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen.

World War 3: Russia, Iran vs. Saudi Arabia, U.S.?

And Russia may support Iran in its fight against the U.S.-backed Saudi Arabia, triggering a World War 3. Last month, even before Saudi decided to bomb Yemen, Russia warned that it would help Iran attack Saudi Arabia if the U.S. armed Ukraine against Russian-backed rebels. Moscow said that it would “respond asymmetrically against Washington or its allies on other fronts” if the U.S. arms Ukraine. Worse, Putin has already accused the United States of supplying lethal weapons to Ukraine.

The U.S. has also been strengthening its military presence in Europe to reassure its allies. A World War 3 won’t be out of the realm of possibility if Vladimir Putin decides to support Iran against Saudi Arabia. And Putin has already shown that he fears no one, not even the U.S.

  14. You have done nothing, proven nothing, and know nothing. There is nothing democratic about the iranian cancerous dictatorship by any sane human’s standards; all of the policy-making, authoritative regime components are run by non-elective bodies or individuals. For the rational, here is a link with facts, one that tools like petey of course won’t ever admit to:

  16. You asked a question and I gave you the answer. Perhaps you should ask your caregiver to read it to you. In 1979, the Iranians liberated their country from the US-imposed govt. and successfully stood up the the US govt. as they have ever since.

  29. First, you are getting what you deserve. Second, I know you are working within the limitations of a baboon brain, so I’ll make his extra simple for you. The only thing I want is for you to stop calling people “chimp”. You’ll notice that I haven’t responded to all the bigoted comments you made using other insults. As for not being able to see your comments, a simple google search of “bob rivers chimp” return all the comments I need to go on for weeks. Yes they might be a little delayed as google takes a few days to index things, but blocking your profile like a coward isn’t going to make it stop. The only way it will stop is if you stop. Also, we read a lot of the same stories, I’ve been watching you insult people for months. The tone of your comments are intended to start a flame war, well you have one now.

  31. Awe, Baboon Bob is upset because while he includes an insult in every comment, he doesn’t like getting insulted back. So sad. No one is going to come to the defence of a bigot. So go cry to every moderator out there, no one will care. Time for Bob to take a look in the mirror and ask why he’s such a shallow arrogant person….I mean baboon.

  33. U.S. foreign policy in the Middle east.

    Iraq…….U.S. supports Iran who are Shiite fighting against ISIS and Al Qaeda who are Sunni..
    Yemen……. U.S. supports Sunni and Al Qaeda who are fighting against Houthis who are Shiite who are supported by Iran.

    Is it no wonder the middle East is in chaos. Can anyone make sense of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East?????

  34. The expected non-answer from the completely clueless. You made a claim that “iranians can pick their own government”, back it up – or admit you’re a liar.

  35. U.S. supports Iran and the Shiites in Iraq fighting ISIS who are Sunnis.Can you tell me what is the U.S. foreign policy in the Middle east?

  36. U.S. supports Saudi Arabia one of the most brutal repressive regimes in the Middle East. U.S. does not care about democracy and freedom unless it is in their best interests. Al Qaeda is the big winner in Yemen thanks to Saudi Arabia and the U.S. bombing campaigns who fully support them.. Yes this the same U.S. who are supporting the Shiites in Iraq fighting the Sunnis and Al Qaeda who they do not support. Is it no wonder the Middle east is in such a mess. Can anyone figure out U.S. foreign policy?

  37. The Iranians had the backbone to choose their own govt., unlike the US where broken cultists meekly vote for servitude because they have long since lost the will to do otherwise.

  38. The Saudi-US backed terrorists hide among women and children to maximise casualties among women and children. The Yanks and Saudis also keep the war going by arming the terrorists.

  39. And thousands upon thousands of women and children stabbed to death by syrian/iranian- backed militias in syria, or barrel bombed…and that is what you support.

  40. There you go. I guess you haven’t figured it out yet. Every time you say “chimp” I’m going to be here to call you a baboon. There is no other threat, and I’m confident that when the moderators review your comments to me and others, they will lack sympathy for your case.

  41. Chimp I can’t wait to see you banned for the threats and harassment you’ve made, shouldn’t take long now. Then what will you do from mom’s basement, chimp?

  42. The sunni state alliance will be marching into teheran in the not-too-distant future, and hopefully will “deal with” terminating that cancerous regime. The sooner the animal filth khameini, assad and nasrallah are put to death, the better.

  43. So you can dish it, but when you get it back you go crying to the moderator. Let me be clear, I will respond to any comment you many to any person on any website where you use the insult “chimp”. Get used to it.

  44. Mentally ill idiot, by responding to every post and making threats that is harassment, a crime. You won’t be around very long.

  45. “And now I have you in my sights, I’ll be looking for you on other articles, and forums….will be there to haunt you.”

    Constitutes a threat, so I’ve also contacted the admins for Disqus, Valuewalk, and local law enforcement. Have fun, idiot.

  46. Yep its an illness. When I see a bully insulting people and acting like an a$$, I just can’t help but stand up to them. And now I have you in my sights, I’ll be looking for you on other articles, and forums. And if I see you calling people “chimp”, I’ll be there to call you a baboon right back. I will hound you to the end of the internet. Making sure you look as foolish as you have on this forum. I have endless patience and determination. In the end you will have to make a new alias do continue your pathetic rants, but even then I’ll recognized your brand of bigotry and will be there to haunt you.

  47. The comments of a weak minded baboon. Are you saying 2500+ Palestinians didn’t die at the hands of the IDF in the last 12 months? Are you refuting anything in any comments? You go use google, its so easy even a baboon can do it.

  48. All this chimp can do is spout CAIR talking points, it can not refute a single point I’ve made, not very surprising. A dime a dozen low IQ poster/chimp, with few brains and less future.

  49. And what gems you have provided. Straight from the IDF propaganda handbook. And now you admit that you think children are terrorist. But then maybe they are, if I was a civilian living under the oppression of people like you, I’d be attacking you too.

  50. Killing hamas terrorists is a good thing, unless a c-nt like you thinks everyone attacking israel is a “civilian.” Stop posting to me idiot ahole, you’re stupid and have nothing of value to offer.

  51. Well they killed 2500 in just Gaza the past year, that’s not counting all those killed at checkpoints, in night raids, in prisons, etc. Where is your evidence that “iranian terrorist proxies” have killed Americans? Oh right, baboons don’t need to care about facts.

  52. How are the mentally ill allowed to have a pc? And i find it hilarious that trash like you that hates jews calls others “bigots”.

  53. Chimp, how has israel killed tens of thousands? Show us the evidence, chimp.

    Hamas and the other iranian terrorist proxies have murdered thousands of americans and israelis.

  54. You’re mentally ill. You claim I’m paid, yet I use foul language, so that means i am not paid then, right chimp?

    Funny how you ignored all of the events I listed about iran’s murders of US soldiers, not surprised there. Chimps like you hate facts, so you just ignore them.

  55. and you’re a paid troll for Israel. And a bad one at that. Your constant verbal abuse makes you look like an a$$. No wonder you are all alone on these forums.

  56. Which has had the US and Israel in a high state of anxiety for the past 35 years. Both the US and Israel regard Iran as a threat but neither has the backbone to follow through with their own threats. Thanks be to God.

  57. Don’t make mistake .America ‘s hostility & her sanctions on I.R.of Iran dates back to America’s downfall of Shah – America’s closest ally & the Ghandarm of the region .

  58. ISIS is aligned with the Saudis and is fighting against the Houthis. The House of Saud is about the same as ISIS. ISIS will not defeat Iran.

  59. God bless u . yr. comments are really sound &very challenging . Moreover it is important u present yr. ideas without losing yr. temper & using disgusting words .

  60. in fact the reverse will happen. With ISIS supporting houthis, i predict that ISIS takeover of saudi is just a matter of time. Thereafter ISIS will defeat iran leading to a shia sunni compact which will see iran’s nukes in hands of ISIS with a full scale invasion of europe and WW3 backed by russia and china.

  61. The Sunnis are using the advance in Yemen by the Shia as a motivator to build a Pan-Sunni nuclear armed force. The Saudis are playing the victims of the “evil Shia/Iranian aggression” – the same “evil Shia Iran” that wants the bomb. It worked – Egypt and Pakistan came to the Saudi rescue. Now all the Sunnis are talking about building a unified Sunni military force. Iran is being used.

  62. Paid to lie, idiot? And who cares if someone was killed or injured – attempt to murder is as bad actually committing murder. The level of sophistry that these pieces of total trash will go to to try and excuse away iran’s disgusting terrorism is unreal.

  63. Paid to lie, idiot a$$hole? And who cares if someone was killed or injured – attempt to murder is as bad actually committing murder. The level of sophistry that these pieces of total trash will go to to try and excuse away iran’s disgusting terrorism is unreal.

  64. You’re clearly an idiot. I don’t see israel surrounding iran with terrorist proxies firing rockets into it, i don’t see israel killing US soldiers in beirut in 1983, in khobar 1996, or in iraq from 2003 forward, the way iran has. Clearly, you’re a paid troll for iran.

  65. The rocket fire did happen. Palestinians also built tunnels into Israel and infiltrated fighters for attacks that killed Israelis inside Israel. The fact the Palestinians were not as effective at fighting the war as the Israelis is irrelevant. However they are winning the propaganda war.

  66. US forces in Korea are there to defend South Korea from the North. Basically their presence is a deterrent. In the Cold War US forces in Europe were there for the same reason. It has nothing to do with benevolence – it is to prevent attacks and ensure the ability for rapid deployment. US forces were in Australia in WW2 in response to Japan. We have had military installations in Australia since. The Cold War was a war of containment – blocking the Soviet Union and China and their allies from expanding their areas of control. To contain you have to have forces all around whatever is being contained.

  67. The US support for the Saudi terror campaign shows that the US has become a putrid carcass – a nation of broken sheep run by corrupt terrorists.

  68. They are Bombing ISIS in Iraq and supporting them in Yemen. Keeps the war profiteers rich. “OBL”? You mean the body they hastily dumped in the ocean, claiming it was OBL? Were there even any pictures of the dead bin Laden?

  69. The USUKs have shown how degenerate they are by supporting the Saudi terror campaign. They are full of broken sheep like yourself. Together, they are nothing but a putrid carcass that can’t beat any country larger than Panama. They lost Iraq to Iran and couldn’t beat the Taliban in Afghanistan.

  70. Homogenous enough. And there seem no shortage of Wahhabi. What regime change in Syria? Assad (the younger) is still in power. Personally I don’t see why the US would want Assad to go. Perhaps it’s because Iran and Russia are their allies and Iranians have a habit of calling for Death to America and Death to Israel and Russia is trying to retake Eastern Europe.

    I don’t think the US engineered regime change in Libya Libya is clearly a mess today with no one in control. I don’t think that is the fault of the US.

  71. Since Mohamad moved to Mecca Islam has spread by the sword.

    The Chinese call it a separatist movement – but more than 300 Chinese Uighurs have joined ISIS. Why do you think that is – ISIS isn’t anywhere near China.

  72. Oil is going to flow – it’s a market. The price may go up or down but it will flow. And now with cutting imports it’s a problem for OPEC . The Saudis are deficit spending today. Also fracking is like any technology – it gets better cheaper faster over time. Also tech will lower demand for oil – e.g. will the world really need so many cars when they are autonomous and you pay by the ride?

    IMHO The Saudis and Wahhabism they promote are THE problem and it will get worse. When did Israel start selling weapons to the Saudis – I had not seen that.

  73. Good non-answer to the facts I listed about iran, responding with meaningless nonsense. To be expected, from the mentally ill and clueless.

  74. I know 1,000 times more than you could ever idiot. I stated that above, try reading, and reading comprehension. Israel did not start hamas, and tell hamas to stop firing rockets at israel and building tunnels underneath israel, and they won’t fire back. Even a dimwit like you can understand that.

  75. Look forward to this war! Sometimes peace can equate to surrender. Let’s burn Russia and its Iranian and North Korean allies!

  76. Nah. We don’t have bases on foreign soil to be benevolent.
    What fairy tale you are spinning, @Wumphf !!
    We had to work hard to pursuade Australia to accept our “protection”. Why? They really didn’t see the need.
    Likewise with Indonesia.
    Who do you work for, @Wumphf?

  77. 9-11-2001 was before 2003. It changes everything for the US. Obama’s unthought out withdrawal from Iraq destabilized things. It created a power vacuum.

    I am not suggesting we attack Iran. The Sunni will though if the Shia pursue nukes.

  78. Palestinians were shooting rockets at Israel for years – at least when they were not storing them in UN schools. this past summer the Israelis decided to shoot back. Shooting back at someone is not the same as shooting at someone.

    9-11-2001 led to the US invasion of Iraq. As for killing – war isn’t a sporting event.

  79. I am well aware the Sunni/Shia conflict has been going on for centuries. It is now reaching a critical point for the Shia – they will be toast if they try to fight it alone.

  80. 1. having a large military force in Iraq is all about projecting power indeed. That was what I said. It was clear to all that it is a short road trip from Iraq to most Muslim state capitols of interest -Saudis, Iran, Gulf States, Jordan, Syria, etc. Just as US forces in Afghanistan give Pakistan and Iran an incentive for behavior moderation. Thoughtless;y pulling them out creates a vacuum and unpredictable and chaotic results.

    2. As I said ISIS is NOT the preferred way to go for “moderate” Sunnis – that is they thing they are fighting about. The “moderate” Sunnis don’t care about non-Muslim casualties but they don’t want to bring down a massive force in response to the extremists so they are trying to take ISIS out. Notice the Saudis et al don’t give a rat’s about Boko Haram because it’s in the boondocks and therefore irrelevant. ISIS cares about it though because it gives them a broader impact.

    3. If “only” 1 % of Sunnis are “supremacists that’s 16M supremacists. Clearly there are more than 1 %. Note – ”remember there were peaceful Russians but that didn’t stop Stalin and his followers from killing millions of people. There were peaceful Germans but that didn’t stop Hitler and his followers from killing millions of people. There were peaceful Chinese but that didn’t stop Mao and his followers from killing millions of people. There were peaceful Cambodians but that didn’t stop Pol Pot and his followers from killing millions of people. Today so called “peaceful Muslims”, if indeed any such actually exist, do next to nothing to stop Jihadists from achieving their goal.

    4. Muslim populations are growing everywhere faster than non-Muslim populations. Look at the increases in Muslim populations by births and immigration in the US and EU for example. Muslims in both areas are already calling for Sharia. Look back 20 years and the numbers in both were totally insignificant. Also the numbers of Orthodox Jews and SOME Catholics are tiny compared to 1.6B Muslims. Also Muslims are not concerned yet with places like Brazil or say South Africa – they are not strategic.

    5.I well understand the Saudis are the center of gravity. They are the source and force behind Wahhabism. When I talk about Sunni Wahhabism that is the Saudis and now they are coalescing all the Sunnis around their Pan-Sunni force.

    6. It isn’t about bases for the sake of bases. The purpose of military bases in Iran would be to make it clear Iran had support. An attack on Iran would be an attack on any forces stationed there. For example the reason the US has forces in Korea is to make sure the North understands the cost of an attack and to ensure the South the US is committed to their defence.

  81. I guess you haven’t been paying attention. Hamas and Iran are on the outs. What you are saying might have been correct a decade a go, but things have changed.

  82. Lohani – given that Sunni Pakistan has nukes I would look to ally with the West (US, EU) and Russia and even allow them bases if need be. I don’t think Iran understood why Bush went into Iraq. After 9-11 I think he felt having a large lethal highly mobile force in the center of the Islamic world would cut Sunni (al Qaeda, et al) and Shia (Hezbollah) support for terrorism. His goal was to force the Islamic states to concentrate on governing. Obama pulling out against all advice created a vacuum and opened the path to today’s chaos. I also don’t think Iran understood how the Sunni would react to Shia pursuit of nukes and neighborhood expansion.

    The larger problem is Islam – especially Sunni Wahhabism. From the so called “moderate” Muslim point of view the problem is that ISIS and Boko Haram are exposing the Islamic plans for the world too early. The “moderate Muslims” would prefer to just continue massively out breeding the non Muslim population until the Islamic population is large enough for Sharia to be voted in in Democracies. Islam through Sharia is in reality just another totalitarian system of conquest and control. It is also an ultimate goal of Islamists everywhere. Allowing Sharia to be practiced in any Western nation (or any non-Muslim country) is exactly the same as allowing any other alien form of government to be practiced there. When Sharia is the law of the land the ISIS like phase of operations to eliminate all non-Muslims can be carried out with victory assured.

    Muslims are killing people in every country that has more than a few Muslims. They are killing people in the US, Canada, England, Germany, Holland, France, Italy, Russia, China, India, Thailand, Myanmar, the Philippines, Indonesia, Nigeria, all over the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa. The killing is always and everywhere blamed on the US or Israel or somebody – anybody – else. But the only constant is Muslims killing people. Muslims are at war with the rest of humanity not the other way around.

    To Muslims the rest of us are infidels who must be eliminated. The evidence is overwhelming that they are actively pursuing this goal. Most if not all of this killing is completely acceptable to the overwhelming majority of Islamic clergy and is in fact widely encouraged by these hateful fanatics. Islam has no “Thou shalt not kill”. Murder in the name of Allah is considered a duty and virtuous
    rather than blasphemous. There has never been an Islamic Reformation, don’t hold your breath waiting for one.

    Especially now we can no longer just wait and hope. The most serious threat today is Islam. The US, EU, Russia, China, India and all non-Muslims need to unite to contain Islam and end Islam’s war on the world.

  83. Yes idiot, keep using hamas figures because we all know how honest and trustworthy they are. Amazing how everyone in gaza, including the fighters shooting rockets are all “civilians.” Hamas is an iranian plant. You sound mentally ill.

  84. Dimwit, when you address the FACTS I listed above as to what that cancerous dictatorship has done, THEN I will give a flying f–k as to what you have to say. Until then, your credibility is NON-EXISTENT.

  85. Turn off the paid propaganda, dimwit. It is an absolute heinous country, one that hangs gay teens, arrests people for the clothes they wear, has murdered hundreds of thousands of people in syria these last few years, the terrorism it conducts through hezbollah, hamas, and islamic jihad, the murders in iran of journalists such as zahra kazemi, the argentinian AMIA/Israeli embassy bombings, the Bulgarian bus bombing in europe a few years ago, khobar towers bombing, the hundreds of suicide bombings in Israel, the conquest/imperialism of iran’s takeovers in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen, etc. – the list of iranian murder, violence and terrorism knows no bounds as the world’s #1 state sponsor of terrorism.

  86. Lohani – As my original post states “We are witnessing the rapid birth of a nuclear armed pan-Sunni Wahhabi military”. The Sunni ARE THE PROBLEM. Iran is acting against their own best interests by being the catalyst for uniting the Sunni.

  87. Oh yeah, like I’m scared, Mr. Shukla! Russia will help Iran attack Saudi Arabia. With what? LOL. Kalashnikovs and propeler drones with compact cameras duct-taped on them maybe! Did you see the US backed Saudi Arabia army? They would crush the Iranians before you could say “camel po*p”! This WW3 mongering doesn’t help the case either. Conflicts like this have been going on for decades, just like the greedy media hacks have been calling those latest with various “maybe our final” and “could trigger nuclear war” names. Go to h.e.l.l.!

  89. yes but congress can declare war under the war power act and they have to face the people on other elections where Obama doesn’t

  90. yes and after seeing the news tonight China is having there own problems with the economy shrinking they sure the hell aren’t going to get involved in it with the betting man I am Id bet before its over with Israel will slip a nuke into Iran when they are least expecting it

  91. sounds to me your already one of their sheep when they try and take our guns is when holy hell is going to break out in the United States and our government knows it and Lohani Randy doesn’t know his azz from a hole in the ground

  92. Oh yeah, like I’m scared, Mr. Shukla! Russia will help Iran attack Saudi Arabia. With what? LOL. Kalashnikovs and propeler drones with compact cameras duct-taped on them maybe!

  93. Yemen is nothing more than a foolish Obozo victory claim over terrorist in that area. Hell Egypt/Saudi’s can blow Yemen off the map so whatever.

  94. WW III over Yemen? Not happening, no matter what else transpires there. WW III when the Russian economy collapses? Possible. The last resort of tyrants is a call to protect the motherland. Putin certainly seems capable of this.

  95. 19 saudis killed 2,800 americans, while iran has injured or murdered many more thousands; I’ll deal with iran first, and so would every other rational human.

  96. You are clueless, so one egyptian muslim brotherhood pilot revolts, the massive sunni ummah is not committed to destroying the iranian conquering war machine? Get real.

  97. Yeah, right. russia is not fighting on the side of anyone, certainly not when oil is $50/bbl. They are not stupid, and no one is going to fight on behalf of iran, a state probably hated by more of the planet than anyone but north korea. The days of the cancerous, diseased, terrorist regime of iran is nearing its end, at long last, and thank goodness for that.

  98. “in a nuclear confrontation, the country that shoots first is the only potential survivor”

    Guess again. Even if a nuclear power got off the first shot and destroyed all the land based ICBMs, which is doubtful, there are still plenty of nuclear missile submarines and air launched nukes that have enough nuclear firepower to wipe out any attacker. There is no winner in a nuclear exchange. Anyone that doesn’t see that hasn’t really thought it through. Hundreds of millions, or more, would eventually die in any exchange. Radioactive dust would blanket the planet.

  99. Well, it is interesting to note that this author thinks the U.S. is supporting Iranian led militias in Iraq, which is untrue. The U.S. did not conduct airstrikes in the battle for Tikrit until the Iranian influenced militias backed off. Now that those militias have backed off and the Iraqi army has taken over the fight, well, the U.S. open fired. Also, what does the Yemen conflict have to do with conflict in Libya? Nothing, literally nothing, nations have various interests in other countries for various reasons, and how they express those interests is up to the nation at hand. There will be contests within Libya for years to come and those contests and conflicts will be decided by whichever nation funds the winning power. Yemen may be the sight of a pan Arab network with an Army that can express a larger interest for a group of countries, mainly Sunni dominate countries, which will of course, lead to the creation of a rival group that opposes it, think NATO Vs. The Soviet Union on a smaller scale. Yemen will not be the beginning of World War 3. Yemen will be the sight of much larger geopolitical battle though, and the Yemenis will fall victim to a war that will make or break an empire. The U.S. will back Saudi Arabia and it’s Coalition until it morphs into a larger beast, and if (a huge if) Russia can afford it, they will back Iran, which has powerful allies in Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan Afghanistan, and Yemen. Iran will distribute the weapons it gets to help the Houthis, to these allies and continue to grow it’s influence. The battle in Yemen is just that a battle, not a beginning, it won’t be the end either, it is a way point for a larger conflict that has been building, and won’t cease to build. The U.S. has to sit back and intelligently distribute it’s resources because the consequences of getting involved directly are far to great. Russia has the opposite problem, they are threatening to their neighbors and region and in order to gain some friends and keep it’s influence throughout the Middle East they must directly fund and involve themselves. Russia will only be providing material support though, just like the U.S., they do also have a larger vote at play, their U.N. Security Council vote. Which they will use to oppose direct involvement, thus nullifying the chances of a direct military engagement on their behalf, and the chances of world war 3 dies with it

  100. Russians, did you notice that Putin has chosen the side of Iran and North Korea?

    Do you realize that is quite possibly the stupidest coalition the world will ever see? I do not think even China is stupid enough to join that side of this conflict. It will be Russia and North Korea and Iran VS the entire world. How pathetically stupid of Putin to even consider such a thing.

  101. I disagree with Mr Vikas totally..Yemen is not worth to go to a WW3. The thing is the Saudis have to protect his borders. It’s that simple..In fact I truly think the Saudis wait too long to do this ..Further more the Saudis are not along in this Yemen business. Also is backed by Egypt and almost all others Sunnis Arabs of the region.WW3 is a big time overstatement…

  102. Shia Iran is ruled by a brain dead lunatic. All the Iranians are accomplishing is setting the stage for their annihilation. Israel and the West are not Iran’s problem.

    As the fighting against ISIS, and in Iraq, Syria and Yemen demonstrates there is no love lost between the Sunni and the Shia. This war has been going on for centuries. The Sunni far outnumber the Shia – 85% of Muslims or about 1.4 billion Muslims are Sunni.. The Sunni also have vastly more wealth and access to modern weaponry – including nukes from Sunni Pakistan. Both Egypt and Pakistan are now actively in support of the Saudi Wahhabi in the Sunni –Shia war in Yemen. We are witnessing the rapid birth of a nuclear armed pan-Sunni Wahhabi military. The Sunni will use their nukes to stop Iran from getting nukes.

    Iran needs allies – not more enemies. They particularly need allies that can shield them from Sunni nukes. Russia could help but 15% of the Russian population is Muslim mostly Sunni. Putin seems lost in the past refighting WW2. The US, EU, Russia, India, and China need to align to contain Islam until a cure can be found.

  103. This is why President Obama was slow to get openly involved in Syria. You go against Assad, but the rebels were accepting help from anyone who would fight Assad, and Al Qaeda was one such group. One bright spot in all of this was that the United States and Russia were both opposed to Syria having chemical weapons. Had we blown Assad to bits, it was possible Al Qaeda would have acquidred chemical weapons. And then comes ISIS that was a threat to Assad, but we were ready to fight with ISIS, so we were in effect fighting an Assad enemy.

    With all this going on, we are trying to bring some stability to the region by negotiating with Iran to prevent them from having nukes. Israel would rather attack Iran than to negotiate, but Iran is also saving Iraq’s azz, which would help keep Bush-Cheney from looking like the all-time fools of the age. And, of course, Iran being Shi’ite and a lot of the area being Sunnit makes for a real complex situation. One fact you do not hear much of in all this is that Iranians have a sort of superiority complex coming from the way they consider themselves as Persians. When Iran appears to have empire aspirations, it might be more as Persians than as Jihadists. Yes, it might be both. The United States has had a military presence in Saudi Arabia since the days of Harry Truman, mainly because of oil. People stationed there always thought that the USSR would attack, and after nearly seventy years, Putin might be thinking this is the time. He wants Russia to regain the super power status that the USSR held, so don’t take your eyes off him for a second.

    One thing that amazes me in all of this is that the usual suspects are somehow blaming all of this on President Obama. The Middle East has been a disaster zone for thousands of years. If only Ancient Egypt had not fallen! Ol Hank

  104. US to Iran: You can attack ISIS, but not those other guys over there that are pretty much just like ISIS only with much more oil.

  105. Thanks Chuck. I don’t keep up with this much and I appreciate your perspective. Informative and scary. Only time will tell.

  106. So the US is going to be on the side of al Qaeda, ISIS and the 9-11 hijackers. Does the US have the battered wife syndrome or the Stockholm syndrome?

  107. The Saudis are subhuman cowards at heart. They can attack schoolgirls like when they forced schoolgirls back into a burning building. They needed a coalition to bomb Yemen. The US is a nation of broken sheep run by corrupt terrorists. The only wars they have won since WW2 were when they invaded Grenada and Panama.

  108. There is only one true fact in life. Once you take your first breath you will take your last. Live life to the fullest and fear nothing. That last will come, enjoy.

  109. Luhani You are such a dote. This is soon to happen here, Then you get to see how fun loving these muslim idiots really are. Their trying to set up sharia law here in the US as we post . All their waitig for is gun control , then it will happen over night. And on top of that you are to brainwashed by democratic liberalism. You best wake up or you will be one of the little sheeple led to slaughter.

  110. Well our little pouting president Obama says it aint so. they are the most peace loving people in the middle east He said Iran were good old muslims They just want to take over the middle east. So yall just stop worrying about that there little fracas.

  111. There seems to be a very scary idea that we can have a limited nuclear war. If Putin fires a single nuclear device or even if the preparations to launch nuclear weapons is detected, the US will attempt to destroy all Russian nuclear weapons before these weapons can be launched. There is absolutely no way the US and Russia might just punish each other with a few nukes.

    If the US suffers any significant damage from nuclear weapons, certain targets in several countries will be destroyed to prevent them from being a threat to a damaged United States.

    Both Obama and Putin are well aware that the Ukraine was given territorial guarantees in the Budapest Memorandum, by the UK, the US, and the Russian Federation. There was no exception for Crimea written into this agreement by the Russian Federation.

    Putin has defied a nuclear disarmament agreement and now threatens to defy previous agreements on the first use of nuclear weapons. Like the liars Hitler and Obama, Putin defiantly lies and declares that he is not restrained by any treaty or agreement. Putin warns that no treaty or even threat will deter him from using nuclear weapons against any nation, which Putin has decided to attack.

    While Putin’s threats to use nuclear weapons may be empty, the risk of ignoring these threats is simply too great. Therefore, since Putin threatens to use nuclear weapons against NATO, the US must now prepare the plans for the total nuclear destruction of Russia.

    In a situation where conventional weapons are used, conventional weapons may be used in retaliation, but in a nuclear confrontation, the country that shoots first is the only potential survivor, while the opponent will typically cease to exist.

    As in the case of Imperial Japan, where Roosevelt used economic warfare, sanctions, Obama follows the same failed method that almost always leads to an enemy military attack, because sanctions are viewed by violently aggressive bullies as a sign of fear, not as a deterrent.

  112. I think the best would be if we castrate all of them – Saudi king, Iran Shah, Obama, Putin
    they would start to care their pain and not cause the pain to others. Or they are already castrated and being in pain they just cause the pain to all the other people?

  113. Death has been around for hundreds of thousands of years. Billions of creatures have died I have never heard of one who returned to complain about being dead. Death is a part of living. Death is part of our journey. Do not fear it but embrace it. Take care.

  114. The question you should be asking yourself is why do you fear death? What part of death scares you? I would understand if there are ways you and most people would want to die but besides that issue why would you fear death?

  115. I don’t think there will be a safe haven anywhere . Everyone one will be effected some more server then other , Russia U S China and middle east taking the brunt . For the rest , it will be Slow death , birth defects for generations to come .. Japan is testimony to that >>

  116. So we have taken sides in an ancient religious rivalry and may wind up in a nuclear exchange with Vladimir the Puta on behalf of the Sunni Saudis who attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing thousands of Americans, fifteen years ago? Bwaaa Haaa Haaa Ha!

  117. What could I share that’s as credible as all the expert commenters on World and Middle Eatern Affairs. It appears they already have it all covered> LMFAO!

  118. With the trending of events over the past
    months increasing in intensity, will it be a surprise when something like a multifaceted
    world conflict of unimaginable velocity were to occur very soon? I am just thinking, how many of us would be
    ready? Storing food is non-sense it just
    doesn’t work. What would a good plan be?? The only guy I heard of with a “plan B” was
    buying property / business in Newfoundland, Canada. Newfoundland is sort of off the grid,
    economically viable (oil, minerals, fish…) and has its own climate so might
    have a chance to survive where continental US may be a poor choice even if you’re
    prepared.

  119. I believe the time has come for ww3,this whole planet is just one big mess,wars,oil getting low,water getting low…feel sorry for the babies being born these days.

  120. Where do you get your info? Russia can’t afford to feed its self little lone back up Iran. You can see this, Russia made their first delivery of arms to Syria this week. How long since the revolution began. Wow took Russia can’t even afford to help Syria. Helping Iran, I think that is very funny. Again they promise to back up Iran, when they had to stop military spending? Really interesting. You think Putin is over stating. Iran has enough problems. If it were not for Iran there would be no problem in Yemen. Putin should watch who he is backing because Saudi can Increase oil production even more. Putin should be back stepping because the rubble has already bounced. I don’t even know how China is going to sell BRICS with a bankrupt Russia being a founder. That does not say much for BRICS. It shows me the countries signing on to BRICS are making a colossal mistake.

  121. 500,000 want to kill you…1,600,000,000 just want to live in peace…i think we can handle the 500k…why would you want to piss off the 1.6 billion?

  122. Nonetheless, a highly regarded Global Firepower Index places Iran (23rd place) above SA (28th place) based on purely quantitative criteria. The superior morale, battle training of senior Iranian army commanders from Iraqi war, and clear defensive terrain advantage of Iran widen that gap in Iran’s favor further.

    Beyond purely military comparisons, they key issue is the overall regime and system stability. Lots of key day-to-day functions in SA critically depend on foreign labor who of course have zero loyalty to SA and at the first signs of conflict would evacuate, desert, hide, or even change sides to redeem their hate of their abusive and violent SA employers. Recall what foreign laborers did in Kuwait when Saddam invaded? Iran does not have that problem. The stability of Iranian regime was severely stressed and confirmed through bloody and lengthy Iraqi war, sanctions, hyperinflation, shortages. The SA govt. has never been tested for anything.

  123. Oh look – a few weeks ago you posted an article about a boxer warning about WW3. Now its Yemen. Kinda shooting arrows in the dark aren’t well?

  124. At the end of the Soviet Afghan war, the Soviet Army was reported to glean the collective farm fields to have enough to eat each day. The Russians may still not have enough to feed an Army at war. Someone should do a story on this ability – lack thereof.

  125. putin fears any country with modern weapons decided to fight him.However he don’t fear Obama,because putin knows Obama ‘s voters are against any fight with russia

  126. …Now Yemen
    With money, fake oppressive communist got aggressive with 1000 year china dream to takeover the world.
    Soft WW3 started. Cyber war?petrodollar, currency war, oil war, BRICS(brazil,russia,china,s africa),AIIB,ukraine,ISIS.
    China stolen USA military/private company secrets already.
    Cyber war where china stole USA military/private company secrets in a cyber war already.
    There are 500,000 chinese cyber 50 cent army.
    S Korean VANK(financed by S korea, china, and some ethnic koreans).
    5000 N korea cyber force and attack on sony and facebook account
    Attack on russia economy with low oil price.
    Russians invades parts of Ukraine
    China/S Korea started newly intensified campaign of Japan bashing after Aoyama disclosed there are huge potential for gas/oil around oceans of japan.
    Chinese aggression in senkaku and south china seChinese raid in south japan islands coral(probably installed sonar or damaged japanese sonar, or something sinister).
    China is building ports all around world as well as have presence. In japan, china is probably funding okinawan independence movement as well as usa base movements and local news paper.
    USA spies on everyone, especially internet
    USA assassinate using drones
    China/S Korea intensified campaign of Japan bashing with lies, hate, and distortion after Aoyama disclosed there are huge potential for gas/oil in water around japan.

  127. Iran has gotten weaker. Their limited military equipment has gotten older and fallen apart. SA didn’t go after them in the first gulf war because they were part of the US lead coalition. Morale in iran is no better than SA. Other than the republican guard, most people are not happy with the government, especially the higher military brass. SA would clobber them… Iran/iraq was fought like WW1. New intel and weapons make that fiasco seem like a joke.

  128. So, is this how it all ends? Was this part of the plan all along to draw all Nations into some World War causing us to destroy each other? I doubt it, but anything is possible with this crazy world we all exist on. Oh well, if it happens it happens. I’m not going to lose any sleep over it. We all have to die there’s no escaping that fact. Do not fear death, Fear living.

  129. Sorry to burst Russia bubble about starting WWIII in reference to supporting Iran. Israel who also had Nuclear will attack Iran sooner or later and will Russia had the balls to attack Israel? Israel might be a small country but also has a Nuclear deterrence if attack by a powerful country. Hell will break lose whoever push the button first.

  130. Article Quote:
    Yemen Conflict Could Trigger World War 3
    Yemen conflict is about changing the power equations, and Russia has already warned to support Iran against Saudi Arabia.

    Russia will not use nukes on Saudi Arabia. Vladimir Putin will not willing to gamble his assets that is worth 70 -200 in Billions of Dollars and Gold and not in Rubbles(Ruble). Does the writer thinks that Putin will launch all his Nuclear weapons and watch on the sideline? Even if U.S arm Ukraine, Russia cannot do nothing. We just have a President with no balls.
    This writer of this article, Vikas Shukla (Paid Putin Puppet) is an I**D**I**O**T.

  131. The news today is beyond boring. Nothing exciting. If Saudi and Iran go to war, Pakistan joins in, and so does Iraq, CNN, FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC, BBC et al will see their ratings go up significantly. TV news will be worth watching. Used to be when moslems used to go to war every day. Not anymore. Having peace the mouszzies are get fat and lazy. they all need to shake off this lazy stupor and go about converting the entire world to islam through might. Pakistan allah allah.

  132. Not much of a free thinker are you Paul? You should try it. If you take the time to crawl out from under Hannity’s desk you might learn something. Make sure you wipe off your chin when you crawl out of there.

  133. THIS IS SUCH A CREDIBLE NEWS SOURCE! I CANT BELIEVE HOW GOOD IT IS. AND ALL THE EXPERT COMMENTS BELOW! THIS IS AWESOME!

  134. Yes AMERICA, YOU DESERVE THE HYPOCRITE CROWN,WHEN THIS WAR IS OVER SAUDI WOULD SEND YOU ANOTHER 9/11! You are a real joke

  135. Why would they go Nuclear War? My guess is that there is a 99% it’s either a proxy war or just conventional, Nuclear Weapons are strategically very bad, they destroy alot but also intoxicate yourself.

  136. Not at all, and more likely the opposite. Iran has successfully resisted the Saddam Army in 1980 – 88 all on its own, but Saudis could do nothing against them in Kuwait 1990 until USA showed up. Iran has become a LOT stronger since 1988. Yes, SA has more modern jets and some other equipment, but Iranian army overall is much larger, battle-tested, and has a lot better morale. Not that many people wish to give their lives for totally corrupt multibillionaire jet-setting princes in cahoots with infidels, and Iran has much underground following in SA while the reverse is not true. Also, the mountain terrain of Iran with a lot of dug-in facilities permits far better defense than the flat sands of SA. A major conflict in the region would place huge amounts of oil off market (think Gulf war x 10) and skyrocket the prices to way over $ 100 – Russia would reap enormous profits and become essentially off-limit to sanctions unless you wish to remain without oil altogether.

  137. SAUDI QATAR emirates Turkey AMERICA UK FRANCE ARE THE MURDERERS OF OUR SYRIAN PEOPLE,SCUM OF THE EARTH HYPOCRITS AND MURDERERS,GOD WILL JUDGE

  138. This one is easy, just remind putting that he dies too. Remind him that his family members die too; remind Putin’s pals that their children will die too. In a nuclear war everybody dies! Its no longer somebody’s else’s kid who will go die. Remind them that the people they love will die too and they’ll back off because the life of their children and the people they love are sacred. Mine life, your life aren’t but their are and if you remind them that they will die too they somehow come to a peaceful accord.

  139. Until God says enough, there will continue to be wars and battles in the Middle East. About all anyone can do, is sit back and watch them all destroy themselves.

  140. Well…looks like we are headed for WW111 no matter how you look at it. WW111 if we do not have an agreement with Iran, WW111 if we do have an agreement with Iran and WW111 because of the conflict in Yemen. Let’s throw in North Korea for the heck of it just because they are nuts and you never know when that nut will crack.

  141. oboma and Kerry are about to make terrorist Iran a nuclear state… they should be relieved of their duties, charged and imprisoned.

  142. US and Russia will likely never be at war with each other bc they both know what that means…I dont think Russia gives 2 sh&*$ about Iran. US will team up with Saudi’s and Isreal to take care of Iran

  143. vlad can try if he wants…. but the baltics, Poland and Finland would kick his a(s)s. You grossly underestimate these countries and their hatred of the russians…

  144. Russia and Iran Vs the US and Saudi Arabia ? Ha ! That will be an as($) kicking of EPIC proportions. SA would obliterate Iran… It would be F15’s and F16’s vs F4’s and some other old soviet junk. The intel and logistics would be totally lopsided also. russia would have to jump with both feet, SA would turn up their oil production even more and drop oil to $30/bbl and russia would go broke faster than they are now too… So go ahead vlad…. back the iranians… let us know how that works for you.

  145. And why would someone wants to hold a power that the world fears,only our creator holds that throne,So who are what ever Nation have that one power mindset ,has the mindset of Satan which will be destroyed in this time of revelation

  146. That’s what Syria believed…with Obama’s finger on the war button….yet Putin swooped in and told Assad the US was serious and to give them the chemical weapons.

  147. It is just a beginning.

    Saudis have no chance of winning this war.

    Half of Saudi Army is from Yemen. Yemeni are very loyal to their tribes. Even Yemeni Sunnis are against Saudi bombing. Yemen will be the graveyard of Saudis.

    There will be mutiny in many so called coalition forces. Pakistan is having daily protests against Saudi bombing in Yemen.

    There will be mass desertion from Saudi Army.

    The Egyptian air force has arrested one of its pilots after he disobeyed orders for taking part in airstrikes against Yemen.

    “I joined the army and studied to become a pilot to strike Israel and not Yemen,” Arab news website Omran Press quoted the arrested Egyptian pilot as saying.

    Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for five days now, killing, at least, 73 civilians and injuring hundreds more.

    Five Persian Gulf States — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait — and Egypt that are also assisted by Israel and backed by the US have declared war on Yemen in a joint statement issued on Thursday.

    US President Barack Obama authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to the military operations, National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said late Wednesday night.

    She added that while US forces were not taking direct military action in Yemen, Washington was establishing a Joint Planning Cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate US military and intelligence support.

    Riyadh claimed that it has bombed the positions of the Ansarullah fighters and launched attacks against the Sana’a airport and the Dulaimi airbase.

    Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is attacking Ansarullah positions, Saudi warplanes have flattened a number of homes near Sana’a international airport.

  148. Oh yeah, like I’m scared, Mr. Shukla! Russia will help Iran attack Saudi Arabia. With what? LOL. Kalashnikovs and propeler drones with compact cameras duct-taped on them maybe! Did you see the US backed Saudi Arabia army? They would crush the Iranians before you could say “camel poop”! This WW3 mongering doesn’t help the case either. Conflicts like this have been going on for decades, just like the greedy media hacks have been calling those latest with various “maybe our final” and “could trigger nuclear war” names. Go to hell!

  149. No, no, no..From what I’ve read so far I know for sure that Russia is gonna attack the Baltic States, Poland, Moldova and Finland…then, probably expanding through the rest of Europe…I don’t think they have enough capacity to get into war for Yemen..but if the author of this article claims so..then yeah, ok!

  150. Just wondering: where will Barak Obama and Paddy Kerry be sitting as the Sunni-Shia conflict deploys? If the US foreign policy is gonna be ambiguous the US will lose their credibility for the coming 50 years, IMHO. Not only, but they will be dragged into a farce that is worst than a comedy.

  151. Russia nor Iran will be directly involved in Yemen.
    Russia being in Ukraine is MUCH MUCH MUCH different than Russia being in the Middle East.

  152. Any conflict around the Panama Canal, the Suez Canal and Gibraltar, could ignite WWIII. Why?…because the world’s commerce flows in those areas. Can you imagine what would Germany say if a ship full of brand new german cars is sunk at the Suez Canal? or what would the russians say if their warships can not longer navigate around the Mediterranean Sea? or a chinese ship is sunk full of uranium from Australia? and the Australian can not longer ship anything to Europe or China? , oh yes, that is a big mess and is about to happen, because Yemen is at the Suez Canal.
