Ramping Up the ME Troubles

So, what else comes from Trump enabling a rift in the Middle East over Qatar and encouraging Saudi Arabia?
The Iranian Navy has dispatched a flotilla on a mission to Oman, local media report, and will enter international waters.


From Oman, the ships will head to the Gulf of Aden and international waters north of the Indian Ocean.


The Gulf of Aden, which lies between the Horn of Africa and the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, is home to multiple security threats. The ongoing conflict in Yemen between the Saudi-backed government and the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels has led to a number of ships in the area coming under attack.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
