Only if they don't have resources or global-strategic-position that the US wants.

The holy wars, meaning the Crusades sanctioned by the Catholic Church?

I was wondering that myself. They do control the S entrance to the Red Sea which is a shipping lane to the Mediterranean. Which market the Saudis need access to.

And, surprise, surprise, it's the Saudis attacking Yemen.

So, it appears there is infighting with other factions stepping in for their own purposes. And then we have Al Quaeda fueling their fire.[/quote]

[/quote]Some experts argue the conflict is a proxy war between Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia and Shia-dominated Iran. For years, Houthi rebels have claimed that Sunni extremists militants attacking them are funded by Saudi Arabia. And current President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, when he was vice president in 2009, accused Iran of funding the Houthi rebels. Both Iran and Saudi Arabia have interfered in Yemen for years, but some warn that “a battle between the Arab world’s leading Sunni power and Shiite Iran, even at one remove, could significantly elevate sectarian tensions across the region.”[quote]
