WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49), a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement on Saudi Arabia’s military action in Yemen:.
“The takeover of large swaths of Yemen by Iranian-backed Shia militants has forced our Saudi allies to take military action. Months of fairy tale negotiations and appeasement by this administration have led Iran to believe that it can act with impunity on an international scale. Now, more than ever, it is clear that any real settlement with Iran is impossible, and the president must acknowledge this fact. The continued easement or outright removal of sanctions against this rogue state will only further embolden Iran and facilitate its belligerent behavior. We must make it clear that we will support our allies and punish our enemies through steadfast resolve and decisive action.”
