Britain last night pledged to back the Saudi attacks on rebel positions in Yemen. Around 100 Saudi fighter jets bombed Iranian-backed Houthi fighters yesterday as fears grew of a proxy war in the Middle East between Sunni and Shia factions of Islam.

A shame since the Shia and Sunni were originally not factions at all within Islam. . .
Thanks Beatrice.

Please, please PLEASE let there be all out war between them. It would stop them killing innocent westerners, reduce their numbers and force them to focus on each other instead of their world domination goal. Not to mention the damaged that would be done to the infrastructure of each of these worthless countries. Seems like a good idea to me.

gerry last name is real close to a description. what is wrong with you guys? this is just the brits talking junk. nothing is gonna happen. all this is is 9/11 co-conspirators saudi arabia and israel(isis) against iran. brits want no part of that. we might have to eventually kill them all, and the brits will want no part of that. nobody is going to be throwing in their lot with israel anytime soon. it will be avoided like the plaque. our bombs are coming.

The split between Sunni and Shiiites began shortly after Mohammed's death. Muslims have been killing each other ever since.

They're both awful. But for now, I think the Brits are right backing the Saudis. The Shiites are ascendant and just as bit as dangerous as the Sunnis. The best thing is to have each of them reduce the threat to the rest of the world by killing each other off. It's sad to have innocents murdered. I don't know that there's much to do about it.

Sunnis and Shiites both believe that they are better than all other religions and powers. They've been killing each other and anyone they can off for well over a thousand years, and it won't stop until Islam is no more.

I find it quite ridiculous the USA is trying to reach a deal with a country it is in proxy-war with in the ME.
