Realistically, the U.S. will tolerate ISIS as long as they and their NATO allies continue to rule out "boots on the ground" which politically is just about impossible to do for most players. Perhaps some new mega atrocity by ISIS might change this fact.Well how long will the US tolerate Saudi support of ISIS?
But on a serious note, oil prices are low and dropping. How much damage would the Houthis have to do to reverse this? I think quite a lot. Especially with Iran entering the market.
Also from a military standpoint, what do you guys think? Will the Saudis and UAE be able to take and occupy Yemen? Or will they run out of steam before that?
As far Saudis and UAE endurance in occupying Yemen, I don't think they are up to the long haul and are likely already appealing to the U.S. and others.
