That what KSA has been doing g since 2015 in Yemen, fighting for survival. With Iran attempting to manufacture a vassal state through the fierce and
battle proven ansar Allah faction. Basically if the seige on Yemen ends but houthis are still in power, it will be the end of the monarchy in Saudi
Arabia within a generation.
They have proven with only a proxy subsidized force from Iran to not only keep the northern kingdom from gaining land like turkey is doing in Syria,
but can ambush and destroy their ground forces and FOB's inside south SA as well. Every week, dare I say daily, they post new videos of them sending
Saudi military in retreat, often even forcing the armor to retreat. And their using our damn tanks! The kingdom has imported thousands of mercenaries
from around the world to battle them, and they just end up online as images of the dead. Rebels from FARC even came back to Colombia and ended a five
decade civil war after going g to Yemen! That says some # right there.
Yes, as much as I admire the business they provide us, I fear it can only go for so much longer. Britain Germany and France will miss the income as
What of Oman though?? Why are they never ever mentioned in conjunction with Yemen; they share a border .
I firmly believe that Russia and China are providing support to the houthis in Yemen , even if through Iran.
But who could honestly be surprised, these are the things that happen in world wars. Yemen, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Iraq have all been chopped up.
Other than Ukraine, the other three each have three jurisdictions. Assad kept most of what he had west of the River while trying to figure out how to
get Idlib back from turkey. NATO took most everything East of the River.
Yemen has a no man's land infested with international terrorists to the East, the former Saudi backed and supported regime Maintains their foothold in
the middle, and Iran's guys keep piking the kingdom up the rectum from the West.
Libya's eastern half has been kept together by the due diligence of it's former military leadership with Russia's assistance, with NATO backed new
government in the northwest qnorthwest quadrant, and a handful of no man's lands under varying factions south of them where there are still now open
slave markets which began to operate after France, Britain, and the former us government "saved the citizens from the tyranny of
Iraq is being pulled apart in the south by Iranian interference, from the north by Kurdish nationalism, and held together in the middle by mostly US
military authority and half a dozen NATO top dogs based there utilizing their domestic leadership and security forces.
I guess that s not world war though, it just happens to be another day.
