MAY THE SA'UDS BE LBJ:

For Saudis, Yemen conflict 'becoming their Vietnam' (Hugh Naylor, April 9, 2015, Washington Post)

Two weeks into a Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen, the airstrikes appear to have accelerated the country's fragmentation into warring tribes and militias and done little to accomplish the goal of returning the ousted Yemeni president to power, analysts and residents say.

The Yemeni insurgents, known as Houthis, have pushed ahead with their offensive and seem to have protected many of their weapons stockpiles from the coalition's bombardments, analysts say.

Though, in fairness, the Houthi are the South Vietnamese.
