Taking each other out in great numbers I would hope.
Saudi Arabia threatens ground invasion of Yemen
Middle East teetering on the brink as Iran and Saudi Arabia square up over Yemen
A mass Sunni coalition led by Saudi Arabia was on Thursday night threatening a ground invasion of Yemen with tens of thousands of troops to drive out an Iran-linked Shia militia, which would plunge the Middle East into an openly sectarian regional war.
The Houthi rebel group which has seized much of Yemen and driven the Sunni, western-backed President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi into flight said 18 civilians were killed in overnight air raids by the coalition.
Egypt, Morocco, Sudan and Jordan were supporting Yemen’s Gulf neighbours in the operation, and Egyptian troop carriers were said to be waiting off Yemen’s coast.
News organisations close to Riyadh said it had 100 jets prepared to join the aerial assault on the rebels, while Morocco, Sudan, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain had sent 85 planes between them.
The coalition is backed by both Britain and the United States. The Foreign Office cited the Houthis’ “disregard for the political process”, though the Ministry of Defence said there was no military involvement.
