I'm sure these negotiations will turn out well

The battle between Saudi Arabia and its allies against Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen is on hold, apparently. The Saudi-led coalition, which includes the United Arab Emirates, is willing to give the United Nations a chance to prevent a bloodbath as the coalition prepares to finish taking the Yemeni port city of Hodeida from the Houthis:
"We welcome continuing efforts by UN Special Envoy, Martin Griffiths, to achieve an unconditional Houthi withdrawal from Hodeida city and port.
"We have paused our campaign to allow enough time for this option to be fully explored. We hope he will succeed," UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said on Twitter.
The condition for a full withdrawal by the Houthis from Saudi Arabia and its allies has led to previous peace talks to collapse, and in his comments on Sunday Gargash made clear that if this was to happen again, the UAE would continue its military campaign.
I cannot imagine why anyone would not want these people in their neighborhood:

Look at those bulging cheeks. That ain't Skoal, baby. Those bitches are chewing khat. It's a stimulant, but maybe closer to cocaine than coffee. Anyway, these guys apparently really like it, and these are the Houthis that Iran is backing. In general, anyone Iran likes, I don't. I'm sure talks will break down soon and the Saudis and company can get back to the business of kicking these guys' asses.
