We now find ourselves locked in an existential conflict. An illegitimate “government” threatens to seize control of Yemen, and a number of outside powers are beginning to take notice of our plight. While some wish to help us bring stability and prosperity to Yemen, others will act against us. We must pick our allies carefully, and maintain their support if we wish to achieve victory. May I remind you, victory is the only acceptable outcome.
While it is critical we establish and maintain military supremacy, we must always be aware of international opinion. Remember that opinion can often be swayed by both rhetoric as well as actions. Sophistry, atrocities, war crimes, and neglect of our citizens will all reflect poorly on us, and could jeopardize future support.
Fight bravely, act wisely, but be careful. Our future depends on it.
