[ Editor’s Note: The UAE especially was very angry that it lost a fast transport ship off the Yemen coast to one of Yemen’s missiles. It appears the ship had no defenses. The video was something. I don’t know if it was a lucky hit or had tracking ability, as Yemen’s missile are Soviet-era stuff.

The continued bombing of the infrastructure comes as no surprise, as this is the West’s running advertisement to what the cost of independence can be from the “freedom and democracy” US – NATO and friends.

Yemen is running out of its ability to fix the bomb damage. There are only so many spare parts and jerry-rigged repairs you can do before you are out of options. Clean water is one of the first things to go, and the kids are most vulnerable, as they will drink whatever they can find in such situations.

The UN continues its hand wringing on Yemen, but has no real cards to play for non-compliance. None of its Western arms suppliers want to play showdown by cutting off arms sales to one of the most active market bright spots, the Saudis. So they do what they want, because they can.

We still don’t know if the US has secret treaties à la World War I style that go beyond what we see on the surface with the Gulf States. Although a lot has been said about the Saudi cash crunch, if their $10 billion bond issue gets bought up, they will begin to become a red-ink operation like so many others.

My biggest concern is that the Saudis fear that acknowledging a loss in Yemen could stimulate a coup for the dishonor of its not being able to crush the most impoverished Arab country, even while using its huge military might and Western backers… JD ]
