The Middle East Hot War Is Coming

So I was having a coffee with my deep inside expert on politics and the Middle East and is discussing ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh/whatever you call the motherfuckers, he affirmed two emerging (as in we are beginning to understand, clarity is emerging, not the situation is emerging) realities.  First, Obama actually desires the lid to come off in the Middle East.  See VDH here.  Second, the result will be a conflagration that may or may not draw in others, but it will certain be big and substantially roil the region.  His leading candidate was a Shiite vs. Sunni throwdown once Saudi Arabia decides it can no longer stomach Iranian-allied Shiite victories on the Arabian peninsula...

Less than 24 hours later, the Shiite rebels are claiming ownership of Yemen.  He's actually most concerned with Bahrain, but who's gonna split hairs, next door is next door.  Shiite insurgencies on the peninsula will get Saudis guard way way up.  if they had the clear military advantage they'd be taking care of bidnis as we speak.  As it is, the pot must boil a little further.

Maybe Obama can find time to golf, take a selfie or be interviewed by some C-list celeb.  Cheers all.
