The Saudi-UAE coalition in Yemen has completely disintegrated over the past few weeks. Southern separatists, backed by the UAE, are openly fighting with Saudi-backed government forces. And just recently, the UAE itself is accused by Yemen's totally illegitimate and Saudi-backed government of bombing its forces in an airstrike. So not only are the hapless and vicious Saudis fighting against the Houthis in the north of Yemen, they are now fighting against UAE-aligned separatists in the south of Yemen. It seems like the people in Yemen, both north and south, have no interest in being told how to run their country by a foreign invader who crushes all democracy inside their own territory. Clearly, the Saudi war effort in Yemen is faltering badly and has no chance of succeeding. This was obvious from the very beginning. The Saudis, lacking any semblance of competent ground forces, relied almost entirely on a monstrous naval blockade of Yemen combined with a haphazard air campaign that was more effective at bombing school buses than actual insurgents. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Trump administration, having seen the writing on the wall, is now attempting to organize direct talks between the Saudi regime and the Houthi rebels. Unfortunately, nothing Trump can do now will ever erase the stain of his involvement in the needless and evil war on Yemen, especially after the US congress expressly revoked any authorization for US involvement in that war. Instead of taking that opportunity to obey the constitution and withdraw the US from a disastrous and villainous war, Trump responded by issuing a veto, as if vetoing the absence of authorization for war was even constitutionally possible. So add Yemen to the list of abject Trumpian failures, a list that grows with each new day. But looking on the bright side, at least we can envision a beginning to the end of the despicable Saudi-led war on Yemen.
