Yemen seems to combine the worst elements of Korea and Vietnam. The Korean "police action" is neverending. At this point, so is Yemen.
Can anyone recall when wars were between 2 nations goaded and supplied by outsiders? Bush pursued his war to spread democracy, China their Silk Road financial scam and Russian expansionism. Saudis involved in Yemen and population starves. So is the battle over real estate?

It is the Yemenis that are the bad guys in this: They refuse to publicly acknowledge their obvious material inferiority to Saudi Arabia in particular but also they thumb their noses to Iran as well and even do so to the big powers of the US, Russia, China and Europe. The Yemenis are just reaping what they've sown over the past few decades.

Quite so.

Wouldn't it be lovely if the idiot kids with the guns had listened to their fathers and mothers and worked to just be sensible?

But,.. that is the way of rambunctious little malcontents who think the world was invented last week, just for them.

<chuckle!>
