Saudi violates Yemen cdase-fire; peace talks nevertheless continue

The Houthi and Saleh forces and the Saudi-lead forces have begun peace negation,in Switzerland, under the UN auspices.

On Friday, December 11, 2-15, the Saudi violated a cease fire agreement.

The Houthi-Saleh forces did not use the violation as an excuse to end negotiations, which continue.

Here's how the two sides stand now:

Al-Qaeda is limited to the vast Yemen desert. . .  

. . . the largest sand desert there is.

The US could have defeated al-Qaeda when the Southern Separatists Movement was strong, if  it had joined forces with them instead of with then-present Saleh and the Saudi: a blunder by Bushco-holdovers in the state Department.  Too late now to fix it.
