Who Are The Houthis?

Recently UN ambassador Haley held a “show and tell” in a warehouse for the UN and the media….she showed what she said were Iranian missile parts that were fired into Saudi Arabia by the Houthis…..and now we should point out just who the Houthi are and why they are pissed at Saudi Arabia……

or over two-and-a-half years, the United States has supported Saudi Arabia in a war against the Houthi movement in Yemen. The war has created the worst humanitarian catastrophe in the world and threatens to turn into the largest famine in decades.

Yet very few Americans know who the Houthis are, what they stand for, and why they are our de facto enemies. Two administrations have backed the war against the Houthis without a serious campaign to explain why Americans should see them as our enemies.

Yemeni politics are incredibly complex and volatile—rather than get drawn into a quagmire against an enemy they hardly know, the United States and its partners should get serious about finding a political solution

Might be a good idea to learn what you can for someone in your family may have to fight Yemen and possibly the Houthi.

Just a thought.
