Should the US really be getting into another war in the Middle East?

The US launched retaliatory strikes against Yemen in response to missiles attacks on the U.S.S. Mason, escalating its involvement in yet another war in the Middle East. American forces are supporting the controversial Saudi-led war against the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. The alternative is to sit on the sidelines as Iran deposes an internationally recognized government in order to expand its influence. What do you think? Vote below.

Here's everything you need to know: 

The truth is that Yemen’s government lacks popular support. Its military has largely sided with the insurgents. Iran probably plays very little role. And the terrorists in Yemen are, at best, a side show to the main fighting.


In 2015, a Saudi-led coalition of nine Arab states — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain — launched a military intervention in the Yemeni civil war, which has raged with frequent and often lengthy interruptions since 2004.


Saudi Arabia’s official position is that the coalition is supporting forces loyal to the internationally-recognized government of Pres. Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi as they battle insurgents from the Iranian-backed Houthi political movement.The Houthis’ position is that they are fighting back against U.S.-supported “Saudi-Zionist” aggression.

There is a humanitarian crisis in Yemen due to mass starvation and Saudi Arabia's human rights violations.

The United States cannot tolerate attacks on its personnel. The attacks are not an escalation. The strikes targeted radar sites, meaning rebels no longer have the capability to attack US ships. The United State has the right to defend its people.
