Why are the Saudis losing in Yemen?


Saudi Arabia has the third best equipped army in the entire world. Plus, they have the support of American drones and the armies of neighboring countries. They have more than 180 state of the art combat jets and 300,000 soldiers armed with the best weapons.  On the other side, they have less than half the number of soldiers, and the weapons they are armed with are far from modern…

It seems like a pretty unequal fight, right?! Well, in that case, it might surprise you to learn that Saudi Arabia is losing this war… How is it possible to explain why one of the most advanced armies in the world can’t beat a bunch of guerrillas?
