However, the Saudi-led coalition will likely continue its attack on al-Hudaydah as it is using landing ships to resupply its troops via a sea route.

    This is going to look bad , Saudis are bleeding cash all over the place. They are spending their wealth’s capital. If this drags for a few more years not only the Houthis will get stronger and adapt but it will cost more money to buy soldier for the “saudi led coalition”. Their foreign reserves are already drowning.

    The fatal blow will indirectly come probably from Russia. If russia tries to stabilize Libya the process will drain the Saudi cash and will immediately trigger civil war. EAU might be next.

      Have you ever wondered if this was all an intentional ploy by someone to bring the Saudis down or even just the Crown Prince ?

        Excellent point!

      Is it possible that the prince MBS ordered the purges on Saudi elite to legally collect more money for the ailing government?

    On the ground the ‘Saudi Coalition” is mercenary irregulars recruited from every poor muslim nation led by the British SAS and special forces from other Deep State nations. In the air the ‘Saudi’ airforce is actually the British RAF.

    However, there are no strong goals in Yemen. KSA fights ordinary Yemen people – people with a long memory of Saudi atrocities in KSA’s ‘former’ slave state. Britain’s enthusiasm is limited by this political FACT. So why are the British there? Practice for the coming Iran war, for one. And to have a finger in a key pie.

    Britain wasn’t sure of KSA’s role in the coming Iran war five years back. Now Britain arranged the palace coup in KSA to give KSA leadership who will agree to attack Iran. Britain wants Iran to attack KSA (in self-defense) so Britain and the Deep State can go to war on Iran using the ‘defense’ of KSA as an EXCUSE.

    Remember Blair’s Kosovo War? The one where Blair bombed Serbia’s civilian TV headquarters, mass murdering all the civilian TV workers inside. Well what was the excuse Blair gave? He said Serbia had massacred Albanians in Kosovo (later shown to be a total LIE). In truth Albania (under zionist control) was encouraging albanians in Kosovo to murder Serbs. Once Blair’s war got going, jews from Israel mass harvested organs from serbs captured in Kosovo by Albania. Israel is at the heart of the illegal trade in organs.

    The regime of KSA treats women worse than the USA treated slaves in the 19th century. Yet May, Merkel and Clinton give 100% support to KSA with no political fallout. This is just how THICK voters are- told women’s rights are “everything” by female leaders who allow the continued existence of the worst abusers of women in Human History.

    But the lies that help sell Great Wars are always DEMONIC, so the sheeple cannot truly claim to have been fooled.

    Most people hate top down analysis of the events that shape their lives, since such an approach cannot deny the existence of true evil. Bottom up, like this article, allows people the PRETENCE that things just happen. Bottom up, and its just ordianry fools fighting and dying, allowing other fools to focus on acts of ‘bravery’ and ‘valour’. But the war in itself should NOT be happening.

    Forces of true evil NORMALISE war and other forms of unneccesary suffering- suggest that such is UNAVOIDABLE. Then the sheeple forget to hold their warmongers accountable. Even lionise their warmongers. And the cycle not only continues but ramps upwards.

    Let me conclude by one observation. The TRUE heroes of WW2 I met never ever wanted to talk about their war experiences. They were ASHAMED and horrified at having to participate in the atrocities that form any war act. For sure they knew the nazis had to be defeated- and were glad they helped. But the gloried in the PEACE they helped bring, and not the acts of violence that won the war. They only wanted to forget what they had done and witnessed- praying no other person woudl ever have to go through the same experience.

    Putin could use Russia’s power to END Deep State warmongering on our planet, but he will not.

    The Houthis need to hold out for a few more years. Until there is the next big oil crisis. Maybe 2 years, maybe 5 years, who knows? But it will eventually come.
