The Saudi's are fighting a war against Houthis who are backed by Iran. Shia/Sunni sectarian conflict.

Houthis are kinda sorta backed by Iran in the sense that Iran is arming them (but nowhere to the extent that the US is arming the Saudis). But it’s not the sinister plot of Iranian world domination that the Saudis and other claim it is.

Yemen is a resource grab by Saudi for oil in the Southern area and a Wahhabi verses Shia conflict. The Saudis need new sources of oil supply, their humungus reservoir Al Gwahar is running dry.

Just back from watching a Trump rally. He was going full steam ahead into the opposition. This time the rally was held in Michigan putting off going to the Correspondence Dinner which is customary for Presidents to attend.
