    You can utter that statement, but is it logical? If it is logical, what does that imply?

    Thank god. Now hopefully they can get the rest out. And let that hellhole sink.

    Then why were you saying that the Russians had not been permitted to land in Yemen?

    Did you read the articles posted earlier? Russian aircrafts were denied entry yesterday as the planes sat idle in Cairo due to Saudi Arabia denying entrance.

    You might have "read" the article but, in the light of the flaw in your interpretation that I pointed out, I don't think you have understood the situation?

    Are you on acid? Cause the articles clearly said Saudi Arabia denied Russia access. For what reason? Well, highly suspicious that the day they are denied service, the embassy gets ransacked and stuff stolen, now they were granted afterwards. But that doesnt matter.

    As it can be seen, your "capacity" for articulation is only more "impressive" than your "intelligence" level.

    If you don't mind, what's your background anyway? I have noticed that you often try to "participate" in topics related to "electronics".

    Information technology.

    Stop side stepping the thread. State what you are trying to say. Because talking about nothing isnt helping you. Read the articles that were posted.

    If you want to talk about intelligence, might you try and start off by explaining how history of second world war is playing out here? And how somehow Russia should be idle in evacuating its citizens while Saudi Arabia did deny their entrance orriginally?

    Btw, you can say "try" to participate in that particular field of knowledge, which I have provided a lot more content than yourself in that regard. That is clear enough.

    Wanna know why Saudi Arabia are more afraid of Iran than Russia? Has to do with the difference between sunnis and Shias and the dominance of the ME, as Russia is no longer the main contestor in the ME compared to its soviet days. No event is "pre" planned especially if Russia or any other country is caught off guard, sounds like simple tinfoil hat conspiracy. Side stepping away from a discussion to ask me about my profession is either you attempting to divert the conversation away or trying to somehow discredit me because of my profession. Wont work.

    The reason I asked about your profession wasn't to relate it to this subject, i.e. the situation in Yemen. You just assumed that I was doing that.

    No need to apologize.

    On all of these matters, the world situation will become clear in just a couple of decades.

    One interesting aspect of this discussion was that it brought a situation where Russia and Iran were being contrasted in a power context. Do you know what the next major announcement regarding Iran would be?

    Saudi air campaign fails to halt rebel advance in Yemen


    WASHINGTON – A Saudi-led air campaign has failed to halt the advance of Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen, where growing violence is plunging the country deeper into chaos and further undermining the U.S.-backed government.

    Houthi rebels continued to advance toward the port city of Aden, where forces loyal to President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi are attempting to make a stand. Friday, the Arab coalition dropped weapons and supplies for the first time to forces battling Houthis around Aden.

    Michael Knights, an analyst at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said the Saudis have hit fixed military installations and weapons caches, but they lack the sophisticated intelligence and other capabilities that would allow them to react quickly to fast-moving and widely dispersed forces.

    "A lot of what they're doing is of cosmetic effect," Knights said. "It's hard to imagine the coalition becoming effective enough unless the United States becomes much more involved."

    U.S. help is limited largely to surveillance and planning support. American drones provide the general location of the Houthis and other forces but not specific targeting information.

    The Pentagon has offered to provide aerial refueling capabilities to the coalition, which would allow pilots to remain in the air longer to track targets. U.S. tanker aircraft would not enter Yemen airspace.

    Analysts say Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations improved pilot training over the past decade to match the billions of dollars they have spent on sophisticated American warplanes. Analysts credit the countries for being able to mobilize a complex coalition quickly and begin airstrikes.

    "Arab countries are stepping up to take care of their own issues," said Charles Wald, a retired Air Force general. "This is something we ought to be applauding."

    Initially, several hundred airstrikes a day disrupted the Houthis' advance. More recently, the rebels appear to have regrouped and continued their advances.

    Knights said the air campaign is reminiscent of the 1990s-era NATO airstrikes in the Balkans. He said the Saudi coalition lacks precision strikes based on immediate intelligence.

    The fighting is growing increasingly complex. The airstrikes on Houthi forces help a powerful al-Qaeda terror affiliate, a rival in Yemen. Al-Qaeda is a Sunni organization, and the Houthis are Shiites.

    Thursday, al-Qaeda militants overran Mukalla, a major port city in southern Yemen, the Associated Press reported.

    The Houthis are allied with military forces who remained loyal to Ali Abdullah Saleh, the president ousted from power after protests in 2011. As a result, the airstrikes have targeted military installations and army units that would be needed to help stabilize the country should fighting cease.

    "At the end of the day, were going to have a force that might not be able to reunite," said Katherine Zimmerman, an analyst at the American Enterprise Institute. "Most units have been rendered combat-ineffective."

    Houthis Say Control 90% of Territory in Port of Aden



    "Right now we control up to 90 percent of the Aden territory. Fights are taking place near one of the city's churches," Mutag told RIA Novosti.

    He also said that Russian nationals in Yemen had nothing to fear despite the hostilities across the country.

    Yemen is currently in a confrontation as Houthi forces continue to overtake areas controlled by diminishing troops loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who fled the country amid escalating fighting.

    Hadi left the country in late March as Houthis made advances in Aden after he had removed there following an escape from the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

    On March 25, Hadi asked Arab League countries for military aid. A Saudi Arabia-led coalition of states quickly launched airstrikes on Houthi positions in the Yemeni capital.

    Houthi forces have warned they could expand attacks to Saudi Arabia if the airstrikes continue.
