Radical Islam Topples Yemen, Hezbollah Invades Israel, ECB QE

by Greg Hunter, USA Watchdog Several top stories are all coming out of the Middle East, and they all show war is approaching. Yemen has fallen into the hands of Islamic radicals, and there is total chaos and anarchy in the country which now has no formal government. This is an ominous development as it borders Saudi Arabia where staunch U.S. ally, King Abdullah, just died. A successor has been named, and he faces a country on its Southern border overrun with rebels that oppose America and its allies. President Obama has called Yemen a success story, and now it is a disaster that can and will further destabilize the Middle East. My question is when will the anti-American rebels try to overthrow Saudi Arabia? That is coming. The U.S. can’t let that happen because if they do, it’s lights out for the petro-dollar. The U.S. has been moving men and machinery to the region to fight ISIS. Will they be diverted to Saudi Arabia? Israel attacked positions in Syria and killed the son of a Hezbollah leader and an Iranian General. Iran and Hezbollah say they are going to invade northern Israel in a counterattack. The Israelis say an attack on Israel was already in the planning stages, and it attacked preemptively. This could get ugly and very bloody. Hezbollah has been amassing thousands of missiles, and they could rain down so many missiles on Israel it could swamp the Iron Dome missile defense system. A missile attack by Hezbollah could make what Hamas did in the south look tame. This might ratchet up the violence as Israel moves to stop such an attack. Meanwhile, Iran just signed a defense pact with Russia that could send sophisticated S-300 missiles to Iran. These missiles are defensive and might thwart a possible air strike from Israel over Iran’s nuclear program. Here’s a big question, if Israel attacks Iran, will Russia feel obligated to then attack Israel? Who knows, but this news clearly shows tensions on the rise and peace is being pushed further out of the picture. A direct attack on Iran by Israel would surely cause a wider way. On top of that, Israel has released satellite photographs that it says shows Iran has what appears to be a new ballistic missile. The Israelis claim it is capable of hitting targets far beyond the Middle East. Continue Reading>>>
