    Saudi Arabia begins military action in Yemen

    Saudi Arabia has launched military action/air strikes in support of the President of Yemen

    https://twitter.com/SaudiEmbassyUSA/...78655045255168

    As I understand the Houiths are a shiite grouping is this a new proxy war for SA/Iran?

    (Aside:Have we reached the point where declarations of war are now officially made on twitter?)

    It fits in both? Current and foreign affairs? I can only put it in one? If you have a problem you can always take it up with the mods?

    The folks at Zerohedge have picked up the same story too

    Another Middle East War Breaks Out: US-Supported Saudi Arabia Begins Bombing Yemen, Tanks Cross Border | Zero Hedge

    Another Middle East war, and another proxy war (Shiite Iran versus Sunni Saudi Arabia).
