Although most of us have been preoccupied with ISIS, “a war for the crown of the caliphate” is raging all around the world, and we need to strengthen our alliances, says Dr. Sebastian Gorka.

Gorka joined “Fox and Friends” this morning to sound off on escalating tensions in the Middle East, most notably between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Tehran on Thursday accused Saudi Arabia of conducting an airstrike on the Iranian embassy in Yemen.

“This is huge. Everywhere we look, the world’s on fire,” said Gorka, a distinguished chair of military theory at Marine Corps University.

“We are obsessed with ISIS … but that’s just part of the much larger context.”

Though proxy wars have long raged throughout the region, “that’s now gone out into the open,” Gorka explained. “It’s about a war for the crown of the caliphate.”

“We should be supporting those guys who are on the frontline of this war, who are on our side already,” he said. “Especially Egypt, especially Jordan.”
