Yesterday Lebanon's PM Saad al-Hariri resigned as he feared for his life due to Iran's plots. Officials also intercepted a missile over Riyadh launched by Iranian-backed Houthis. Should the US do more to roll back Iran's influence in the Middle East?

A better question is CAN the US do anything.

That’s not yet our problem. Interventionism has done nothing but harm.

Problem is if we don't get involved we need to pick someone to support strongly and make them a power in that region. I don't really see a clear state that should have that power. I know everyone will reply and say "what about Israel?" and to them, I say what about no. If a gun was put to my head I might say Jordan but still I dunno.

No. They are resisting US imperialism. ✊🏿

Also there's little proof that Iran has actually sponsored the Houthis.

Yes but I promise as the US tries....then Russia and China will step up to help Iran. There are still treaties in effect.
There may be a civil war brewing in the US (though that seems an overstatement) but there is one brewing that, due to treaties, could engulf much of the world. This does not really apply to NK though. China and Russia have both applied sanctions to NK on their own.

Yes, and we can start by reimposing sanctions on them.
