(UnitedVoice.com) – On Friday, February 5, Joe Biden’s administration announced it would no longer designate Yemen’s Houthi rebels a terrorist organization. The decision was made over the Yemeni government’s objections. All it took was two days to prove exactly why they were considered terrorists before Biden came along.
On Sunday, the Biden administration had to tell the rebels to stop attacking civilians in Saudi Arabia and Yemen. State Department spokesman Ned Price said the president was “deeply troubled by continued Houthi attacks.” This is exactly what Yemen’s Foreign Minister Ahmed A. bin Mubarak warned could happen back in late-January.
@BinmubarakAhmed “Don’t send wrong messages that Houthis may misinterpret as impunity for their terrorist crimes, and eventually expands Iran's destabilizing influence in the region”. #Yemen https://t.co/AdWqHQ99S2

Biden didn’t listen to the experts in Yemen and now the Iranian-backed militants are emboldened to commit more acts of violence. The new administration seems determined to destroy all the progress former President Donald Trump made in the Middle East. It looks like Yemen and Saudi Arabia are going to be among the first countries to fall victim to the POTUS’ questionable foreign policy.
