The White House has confirmed today that they are in contact with the Saudi Arabian government, and coordinating with them on the ongoing attack and pending invasion of Yemen.
The scope of US involvement in the war is still being fleshed out, but for now, President Obama has authorized the Pentagon to provide “logistical and intelligence support” to the Saudis, according to National Security Council officials.
Gen. Lloyd Austin says US military forces will also take steps to ensure that the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, off the Yemeni coast, remains open during the war. The strait is a key choke point for oil shipments to Europe.
Saudi warplanes began carrying out airstrikes on Yemen on Wednesday, and they have some 150,000 ground troops massed at the border, anticipating an invasion at some point in the near future.

Nice to see the mass murderers of DC working with their head chopper vassal state Saudi Arabia to do some more killing in Yemen.
Is it time for impeachement yet?
Will Russia now start sanctions against US citizens and interests seeing the naked aggression going down here? It really is much clearer than so-called Russian "invasion" in Ukraine.
The obvious motivation for this war is not to reinstall a failed dictator. This war is a desperate attempt to raise the price of crude.
And it's working. Oil prices were up 6% before the Saudis began bombing.
> desperate attempt to raise the price of crude
That's fucking bullshit seeing how the price of crude is actually a nice weapon against Putin. And the price of crude dropped after the Tomato Lord had visited Saudi Arabia. Price drops while Lybian output is way down and ISIS is in control of large swathes of Iraq? I think not.
US help insures failure
