    Yemen has become a target of international intrigue over the past few days. About a week ago, Saudi Arabia in conjunction with the United States did two large bombing raids over the northern half of that country. We have various intelligence officials and military advisors already on the ground in the country. Yemen is in the midst of a major civil war: the northern Houthi tribes, which is Shi'a in religious orientation and backed by Iran is battling the country's Sunni dominated central government (if we can call it that), which is backed strongly by the Saudi's and the Americans. There are wider geopolitical actions here that need to be accounted for. The conflict in Yemen is essentially a proxy war between the Saudi's, backed up by the Americans and the Iranians. First some context: the 3 main power players in Middle East at the moment are Saudi Arabia, Iran and Israel. All 3 nations disagree with each other and are jockeying for greater influence in the region. Iran in p... Read more

    Please stay out of this hellhole, my friends. Could you imagine the thugs of this country being anywhere but in an Islamic "religion of peace" area? How would you like to have to live on the Arabian Peninsula?

    Yemen is truly a most stunning place scenery wise. It is just fascinating. Not particularly safe but if you ever get the chance to spend some time, then do. Visit it all.

    I'm glad this country is a republic and on its way to becoming a developed nation. I have been to Yemen and I have never heard anyone talk negatively of America, it was the complete opposite, they knew America is the best place to live in. The deception in the media has lead many people to believe that every country in the Middle East supports terrorism, which was not the case in Yemen. The Yemeni President, in my opinion has done more to promote democracy than any other president in that country's history. He united both North and South Yemen to become one nation. He established a representative government and a democratic system of voting. Women are allowed to vote. I'm proud that the government is not dictatorship.
