The American drone that was recently shot down by Iran changed Trump’s view of the region, to the point that within 24 hours, he had made several contradictory comments and all analysts admitted that Trump and the Pentagon’s decision makers were confused! What’s more interesting is that Trump, one day after the incident in Iranian airspace, Tehran claimed that he should thank the IRGC for not downing a manned US military aircraft that was flying alongside the drone.
In fact, Trump even thanked Iran for sparing the 35 people on-board the manned aircraft that it decided not to shoot down after it had just downed a $200 million UAV. Based on this and other factors, analysts and experts on Iran-US relations believe that Trump is worried about the consequences and costs of war, and there is no chance of war between Tehran and Washington. That is why the Democratic leaders in the US congress called for a law to prevent the White House from war with Tehran.
In such a situation, the concern of “B Team”, in particular, Mohammed bin Salman, to exit the Yemeni crisis has become more serious. Within a week, the Yemenis pulled off an unbelievable structural change in term of their military and security tactics! Yemenis are now launching domestic missiles and “Qasif K2” drones towards Saudi Arabia and targeting Saudi’s critical centers and in the response to Saudi Arabia’s aggression on Yemen they have targeted two airports, several military installations at the airport, and above all these the center for guidance and command of Saudi drones in the south have been targeted and witness a lot of damage. On the other hand, the world public opinion does not look at Yemen’s war with Saudi spectacles and the propaganda it’s pushing, and every day we see an increase in international protests in different countries. To the extent that marches and demonstrations against loading arms onto a Saudi cargo ship in France became a serious challenge, and a group believed that Riyadh should be targeted in a boycott campaign like the one seeking to boycott Israel. A matter that will certainly be expensive for Saudi Arabia
However, Riyadh wants the United States to rescue it from the situation in Yemen. On the other side, the Pentagon officials observed in the occupation of Al Hudaydah that the Yemenis would not easily step back from their positions and their resistance is unique. The issue led to the approval of several legislative proposals to reduce the level of White House co-operation with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but faced trump’s veto. In other words, Trump wants to help Saudi Arabia, but the developments in the region are such that they create a certain confusion, and Washington’s decision-making structure is now busy in another issue and cannot easily support Riyadh. The issue that will increase the damage and costs of the Yemeni war in the upcoming days, and it is likely that the new decision of resistance in Yemen will lead to new field and security Changes.
It should not be forgotten that the Americans know well that Yemen has become a quagmire for Saudi Arabia, and entering in the region could create another Afghanistan where the United States will get stuck forever. Therefore, they are going on the sale of arms and the milking cow strategy. An issue that does not help Saudi Arabia, and it will even further increase its budget deficit, and will not help to equate the field in Yemen and win against Yemeni people.
