The Houthi Audition to Be America’s Next Quagmire

You know they'd be good at it

Hussein Muhammad al-Houthi, a mid-level ground commander for the Ansar Allah, smiles enthusiastically as he enjoys tea with his trusted lieutenants in a ramshackle  shop nestled in the ruins a bombed out building. The 41-year-old Yemeni is excited about what he considers a once in a lifetime opportunity—to be part of the newest American quagmire in the Middle East.

“It truly is a blessing from the Prophet!” Hussein declared, lifting his teary eyes and battle-scarred hands to the sky. “Seriously, at this point, I was starting to think we would never get our break. We’re not cherries.”

“We’ve been at this since 1994.”

In September, Houthi drones struck two Aramco oil refineries in Saudi Arabia. President Donald Trump responded by authorizing U.S. troops to deploy to Saudi Arabia to help defend the kingdom. The move has sparked speculation of possible U.S. and coalition troops operating inside Yemen in the near future.

While many see the specter of entering a ground war in Yemen as a political and military nightmare, Hussein and his fellow Houthi rebels see their big break.

“Imagine getting in on the ground floor of something like this?” beamed Hussein as he poured another glass of tea. “Years of mission creep for the Infidels until they just resign themselves to staying and dying while filthy American politicians and cursed generals fail to develop an exit strategy. Glorious!”

“We thought we were getting into the big time during the Obama years, but he was all about the drones. Very disappointing.”

“It’s our time.” Said Abu Ali al-Ruzami, one of Hussein’s subordinates.  “We may not achieve the same success as the Taliban, but the brothers in Afghanistan are on another level.  I mean, 18 years. Are you kidding me? I’ll tell you this, though, we’ll do a damn sight better than those posers in Boko Haram.”

“Losers.”

They’ll really make out if America can set up a base there. Imagine all the Houthi families which can be married into and brought back to the States. The joke would for sure be on the American public.

While anything is possible when psychopaths are in the decisions making process, or are in the Command structure, in this sense, I am not sure the US Military will send ‘visible’ troops into Yemen. Some Special Forces teams might go hunting, but I think that is it.
This will remain a ‘Covert War’. At least until after the 2020 POTUS Selection.

As for a comment by “Is-ra-hell Secret Intelligence Service” -ISIS- no one cares.

I wish the Houthi the best fighting for survival against the Great Satan.
I know how it feels for the Great Satan to rape and slaughter my people and kin, burn and blow up cities filled with innocent civilians, steal everything then lie like dogs and occupy.
My Country, the Occupied by the USA (The Great Satan) for 154 years and counting, by force and lies, The Republic of Texas, also wants her freedom from the Great Satan holed up in Sodom and Gomorrah on the Potomac.

Texas is a stolen part of Mexico – it must be returned.
