Saudi-Yemeni war

This week, Houthi rebels fired a missile at Mecca. It was intercepted, presumably by a Patriot missile. These are the countries which have Patriot batteries. I'm surprised the U.S. allowed Taiwan to have the system.

And here is a video of Houthis attacking a desolate border watchtower along the Saudi-Yemeni border. The geology is so out-of-this-world.

I get that the young Saudi prince was trying to make his mark by cutting oil prices and bombing Yemen, but his tenure has been a disaster for everyone.
