Adjust Your Current Policy With Regards to Yemen or Face a Huge Fiasco Somewhere in the Near Future.


With current military operation you might be able to destroy all heavy weaponry equipment or some strategic roads or bridges across Yemen. But these achievements would never lead you toward a total victory in Yemen, based on many reasons, which are beyond the scope of this short note. You should fundamentally adjust your plan in this matter, before it's too late.

If you continue with this operation, the Yemeni tension would undoubtedly spillover into Saudi's territory probably in the Eastern province, somewhere in the future. In addition, your wrong policy might end up to total closure of Bab-el-Mandeb. Bear in mind that the 40 kilometers width Bab-el-Mandeb can be easily impassible for any ships by firing some light artillery or rockets from Somalia and Yemen by anyone or any terrorist group that have some basic knowledge about guerrilla warfare.
In such a scenario, your heavy equipped aircraft carrier cannot do anything at all. In short, when it comes to Yemen, you are too late, too short, too ineffective.

Thus, review and adjust your plan, before you end up into a huge fiasco.
