Iran has dispatched two warships off the coast of Yemen.  The Iranian ships join Saudi and American vessels in the same area, and arrive after the Speaker of the Iranian Parliament accused Saudi Arabia of crimes against humanity for its bombing campaign in Yemen.  Needless to say, the action has raised the tensions in the region considerably.  The US has positioned two US aircraft carriers, CVN-71 Teddy Roosevelt and CVN-70 Vinson, as well as the amphibious warship Iwo Jima near the Gulf of Aden.  Iran’s Press TV reported the move today.
