Saudi Arabia has announced plans to send “huge reinforcements” into Yemen to conquer the remaining cities under the control of the Shi’ite Houthi forces, as they and other GCC member nations plan to send thousands more ground troops into the country to escalate the ongoing war.
Qatar is the first of the GCC nations talking numbers, announcing they are sending 1,000 ground troops into the country today, along with 30 Apache attack helicopters and 200 armored vehicles. Bahrain also talked up sending more troops.
The number of foreign troops in Yemen is not known at this time. The United Arab Emirates was the only one really talking about having troops there, but after Friday’s loss of 45 UAE troops, the Saudis revealed 10 of their ground troops were killed at the same site.
The pro-Saudi forces control parts of southern Yemen, including the “temporary” capital of Aden. The Houthis control virtually the entire north of the country, and while they are referred to as “rebels” by the GCC, the war is increasingly boiling down to a Houthi-led north versus a GCC-led south, with the country in a state of de facto separation.

Wow, the invaders are getting more bold by sending more useful idiots to fight for the head choppers in Saudi Arabia. If we had a legit UN or honest U.S. Officials, the Saudis and Obama would be condemned by all other world leaders and they would be charged for war crimes and crimes against humanity. How could any sane media call these barbarians a coalition. They are invaders who are interjecting into a civil war that was won by the Houthis and former military leader and by invading, they are violating the territorial integrity of a sovereign nation that hasn't attacked Saudi Arabia.
Has everyone forgotten that it was the US interjecting themselves into Yemeni politics. That got the sands bleeding, and then finding themsrlves being stretched militarily thin began killing off a lot of those Yemeni leaders who had helped funnel weapons into Afghanistan against Russia and then into Balkans (Black Eagles etc)throughtheir connections in Pakistan anf AfghanistanBy drones they made sure any Arab nationalist from anywhere not on their payrolls had no place to hide in Yemen..
Now we have spent years arming and training Saudi Royals how to fly and drive tanks and missle carriers by our private contractors of our CIA contacted military industrisl complex and national oil firms help.
But just who and the hell are these ground troops that the UAE’s men in flowing gowns sending into combat?
NONE of their nations have enough male populace to do any form of actual work and they all have totally foreign workers from bedrooms to sewer rats and construction.
Saudis have thousands of Pakistan and even India vets and in tech fields lots of US and euro technicians directing foreign skilled laborers.
Our and even Israeli Mercs have traied ME spec forces with Brit French and american ex????¿¿¿ sevicemen doing basic training.
Not that today the Yemenis themselves mind killing each other but until they allowed US into country even their political argumentsbhad a poetic ring to them and violence between different tribal groups was almost unheard of. WHEREUS GOES THE BLOODS OF THOSE WHOLIVE THERE WILL FLOW.
