    Arab States launch biggest assault of Yemen war with attack on main port

    Arab States launch biggest assault of Yemen war with attack on main port

    War in cities equals lots of dead civilians.

    A Saudi-led alliance of Arab states launched an attack on Yemen's main port city on Wednesday in the largest battle of the Yemen war, aiming to bring the ruling Houthi movement to its knees at the risk of worsening the world's biggest humanitarian crisis.

    Arab warplanes and warships pounded Houthi fortifications to support ground operations by foreign and Yemeni troops massed south of the port of Hodeidah in operation "Golden Victory".


    Fighting raged near Hodeidah airport and al-Durayhmi, a rural area 10 km (6 miles) south of the city, media controlled by the Arab states and their Yemeni allies reported.


    The United Arab Emirates' state news agency reported that UAE forces and local allies had penetrated the Houthis' front line on the airport perimeter.

    The return of WW 2 tactics and some wars before that. Even fueudal lords burned villages. The one saving grace of the press may be putting a damper on this part of war

    I read that a Saudi ship was sunk.

    The US won't be using WWII tactics in future combat inside mega cities. I have posted two threads on the topic. There is a lot of thinking and planning on how to do it.

    The US sort of created this monster (enemies who use civilians as shields) by creating such a powerful and effective military. If they fought a conventional war outside of population centers they would be defeated badly extremely quickly.

    A shame that you don't understand foreign policy and war as well as you understand US domestic politics.

    You should work on that.
