KNOWING YOUR ALLIES:

House votes to end military support for Saudi-backed war in Yemen (Khorri Atkinson, 2/13/19, Axios)

The House overwhelmingly approved legislation Wednesday that would force the Trump administration to withdraw U.S. military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

The bill, which passed 248-177 and now heads to the Senate, is a rebuke of President Trump's foreign policy amid broader pushback over his defense of Saudi Arabia, whose role in the conflict has been under heightened scrutiny since the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The Senate passed a parallel resolution 56-41 in December, but a blocked vote by House Republicans prevented it from ever reaching the floor of the House.

The WoT is all about our alliance with the Shi'a against the Salafi.
