      Looking at the above map if Saudi’s and their proxies attempt to enter Houthi territory on ground they are facing terrain of peaks and valleys. That means all ground vehicles would be forced to travel in the valleys – and channeled along predictable and often narrow routes – never a good place to be in war.

    If only for once they would stop shouting like a bunch of al qaeda wannabe’s, it would give them much more credit if they would behave like a normal army, instead of some radical fanatics.

      They don’t sound very enthusiastic, too much Khat? These Houthis are a trip.

      There not the army so why or how would they act like a national armed force plus these guys are militia…but more well-versed in their own fighting terrain then people give them credit for their just pulling what the Russians did to Napoleon pulling him deeper into territory and never giving a decisive battle or victory but always harassing him with small skirmishes against his large elite men…which slowly depleted his manpower…their gurellia style group like the NVA..they’ll win this war both in body count and politically but the Saudi’s don’t realize their walking into their own Vietnam….

    Wonder why they shout the same refrains after destroying inading forces?
    Then one of EuroCentrics background do not know own histories of refrains they shouted as the blew living he’ll out of each other in all the dumb F’n wars they used to engage in while on own lands.
    The high fives of NATO pilots and snipers armor and gruts as they kill (“sand niggers) and other than less than human women children and old men.
    Euro Centrics whose nations look upon other people’s as no more than “collateral damaged” as they sip on civilized latter’s and fish and chips, while watching movies or local boob tubes.
    Sorry that those Houtis who are fighting the technological might of our civilized world’s genocidal attacks do not just pray for “Our Hero’s” departed souls?
    Not I.
    Personally I doubt that as a group they can prevail, knowing those oh so civilized masses on F’n keyboards in selfie delight will not give a damn.
