Another instance of that "great military hero" McCain pushing for yet another losing war.
Why doth treason never prosper?
Because when it does, none dare call it treason.

3 Saudi brigades fell in hands of Yemen’s Houthi fighters in Najran south of Saudi Arabia.
Hundreds killed/injured and detained. A huge quantity of weapon including armored vehicles. Saudi senior officers among the war prisoners.

The Saudis are in quite a mess but the deployment of Iranian cruise missiles in Yemen places all of the kingdom's water supply at risk. The ability to take out the desalination plants that supply thirty eight million Saudis is like a knife to their throat.

5 years of butchering defenseless people ended when Iran taught Yemenis how to fight. Western humanitarians were sanguine about it until the attack on that pumping station concentrated their minds, just like that proverbial death sentence

Rumors of an assassination attempt on MbS by his senior bodyguard in the Royal Palace:

Major General #Abdulaziz Al-Fagham the bodyguard of Salman bin Abdulaziz was killed after an attempt to assassinate the king inside his palace by a family member whose name has not yet been given to us.

I doubt Iran can teach the Houthis much about fighting. Teach them about new equipment tech, yes.

Just my layman opinion.

Something changed, in weapons and in tactics.

No doubt.



A lot of speculation that MBS is trying to clean up loose ends of those who pose a threat to him by their knowledge of where all the skeletons were buried.

Shot dead under mysterious circumstances Abdulaziz al-Fagham whose mission was protection of the senior members of the royal family.
