This is a pretty succinct history of US-YEMEN relations. We support SA’s military action in the region. Iran backs the opposition.

#YEMEN people suffer, as in all wars.

A brief history of America’s troubled relationship with Yemen brookings.edu/blog/order-fro…
The Civil War in Yemen has been raging since 2015... and the effect of the bombing campaigns unfortunately resemble much like their counterparts in Syria... some areas have been entirely devastated.

#EndWar #PeaceNow

PICS:
Will the US join its UK ally in denouncing the war in Yemen?

It’s a complex subject, especially given the US’s huge military arms and services contract with Saudi Arabia.

Is this the turning point for the war in Yemen?

The #Yemen Civil War is a complex one, in that Houthi’s/Saleh are backed by a dying Al Queda sect (with Iran funding). The conflict is a sub-sect to the US’s War on Terror and we cannot allow them to hold any stronghold to rebuild their dwindling forces.

Will the end of the Iranian Nuclear Deal (which Iran used to fund terrorism in the region) and the increased recent Iranian sanctions be ENOUGH to break the opposition’s back in this conflict?

I pray so... PEACE IS THE PRIZE.

Qatar was suspended from the coalition due to the 2017 Qatar diplomatic crisis.

Qatar has been known for some time to also be a state sponsor of terror in the region.

On 8/2/17,Qatar announced that they would restore full diplomatic relations with Iran.

As the Iran sanctions take effect and the economic portion of this conflict take hold, Qatar is going to be forced to pick a side.

If they choose US, we get peace... if they choose Iran, Yemen invariably will get more war.

Trump just appointed Mary Phee as the new US Ambassador to Qatar last month, after 16 months with no ambassador. (Trump did invite Qatar’s Emir Sheikh to the WH in April.)
It appears the Senate STILL HAS NOT CONFIRMED Mary Phee as the new Qatar US Ambassador... just like so many others...

SENATE NEEDS TO DO THEIR JOB AND CONFIRM MARY PHEE!

I don’t envy her job, but she will be key in these negotiations with Qatar.

Trump chose a new US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia yesterday as well.

The US called for a cease fire in Yemen via Secretary of State Mike Pompeo 2 weeks ago.

REMEMBER, PEACE IS THE PRIZE!

UK/US both seem to be pushing for Peace in Yemen - We are Allies! Maybe that’s why Macron & Merkel have their panties in a twist... as we also support the UK on #Brexit.
