Yemen is a nation on the verge of collapse. The Houthi control the capital, Sana’a, and Saudi Arabia begins to invade. Iran, the United States, and a host of foreign powers have added themselves to the mix, turning an already volatile situation into a potentially devastating conflict. Thousands have already died, countless people are internally displaced, and the very idea of government has ceased to have any effect. It is in this context that the Supreme Political Committee convenes. For decades, the Shia Houthi have labored under the yoke of the Sunni Hadi government. Yet now, with their control of Sana’a, that is looking to change. Under the combined weight of the Houthi, Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, and its own failings, Yemen is a nation on the verge of collapse. One needs only to find the right place to push, and the whole rotting structure will come tumbling down.
