    Any pictures of the damage to the US warships?


    I don't think that anyone fired at those ships. Plus according to twitter, the alleged sites hit by the US in retaliation were already destroyed by 2015.

    No US sailor got hurt, that's true, we don't know where the USN fired those Tomahawks, IF it fired them.

    @3:17 Videos with Houthi's are like NatoGeo documentaries, featuring highly evolved hunter humans, walking barefoot on rocky desert with AKMs and going after some disoriented, out-of-place urbanised humans.

    That's not even far from the reality...it's exactly that. Also thing I didn't checked before, Saudis have brass ammo, and Houthis seemed to rely exclusively on steel from the last videos, yet here one Yemeni has a bandoleer wrap with shiny brass ammo on his Akms. Either captured either presents are being brought from abroad.

    Probably they has been being trained to attack funerals, weddings, hospitals, schools,... who knows ?

    The UK is still training the Saudi Air Force despite growing evidence of the Saudi-led coalition’s crimes against civilians in Yemen, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon admitted, replying to an MP’s question. The statement outraged the opposition.

    Well Saudi is basically this:

    Bad diet, bad health, no manual labor as Asian workers do that and questionable-to-low brains. What could go wrong.

    It is almost the same map. I commented it adding some link in the page 21 of this topic:

    eehnie wrote:Many people think the Houthis are a group of a few mountain inhabitants, but this war is reproducing the former North Yemen - South Yemen division, and the territory controled by the Houthis (shii) would be most of the former North Yemen. Note that today, the former North Yemen would have 20.341 million inhabitants, while the former South Yemen would have 4.186 inhabitants. This is why the houthis are not being defeated as easily. Saudi Arabia has 32.248 million inhabitants. For the Houthis is about survive, and Saudi Arabia has many people to kill to dominate them.

    i think partition is inevitable. Southern movement even allied with an external enemy (saudis) to achieve independence

    looks like an early T-34/85 variant most likely built in early 1944 or even late 1943

    Based on the road wheels it is from factory 112 at Nizhny Novgorod and built in either 1944 or 45. The video of this is a bit clearer but it is still a little difficult to be 100%. Gun being fired externally by lanyard in case of breach explosion or failure of recoil system due to age of tank.
