    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Saudi Arabia began airstrikes Wednesday against Houthi rebel positions in Yemen, vowing that the Sunni kingdom will do "anything necessary" to restore a deposed government that has been routed by the Iranian-backed group.

    In an unusual tableau, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States announced the rare military operation by his country at a Washington news conference about a half-hour after the bombing began. The strikes started at 7 p.m. EDT, he said.

    Loud, house-shaking explosions could be heard in the Yemen capital of Sanaa and fire and smoke could be seen in the night sky, according to an Associated Press correspondent whose home is near the military airbase in the capital.
    ---------

    Yemen has always been the Saudi's backwater proxy.

    Ever sit on the toilet and hit the water so hard with your product that it splashes on your rear end? That's backwater proxy.

    They are a proxy state. Basically the way the USSR controlled Eastern Europe.
    Afghanistan is basically ran by warlords who get their orders from Pakistan and ISI.


    Afghanistan is also a backwater, and in, no one would want to live in that shithole.

    Yemen is the Middle Eastern counterpart.
    Yemen's civil wars have been funded by Egypt vs Saudi interests, Iran jumping in to the fray is an interesting development.

    Saudi Arabia bombs Yemen to restore the government that was overthrown by Iran

    Obama bends over and takes it up the ass from the ayatollah during nuke talks with Iran.

    It's really not hard to make Obama look like a pussy

    Yeah, but if Iran and the Saudis mix it up, my gasoline will cost $5.00 per gallon.

    The Saudis have been buying weapons heavily for the last decade, and they're getting to use them now.

    The thing is, you can't bomb away an insurgency.

    See: Vietnam and Iraq.


    The real question is how will the Saudi citizens react.. if they are even allowed to react.. idk.

    Three Egyptian military and security officials told The Associated Press that a coalition of countries led by Egypt and Saudi Arabia will conduct a ground invasion into Yemen once the airstrikes have sufficiently diminished the Houthis and Saleh's forces. They said the assault will be by ground from Saudi Arabia and by landings on Yemen's Red and Arabian Sea coasts.



    The aim is not to occupy Yemen but to weaken the Houthis and their allies until they enter negotiations for power-sharing, the officials said.



    They said three to five Egyptian troop carriers are stationed off Yemen's coasts. They would not specify the numbers of troops or when the operation would begin. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the plans with the press.
