Saudi War on Yemen Resembles US Defeat in Vietnam

A senior official said Saudi Arabia’s failure in the war on Yemen resembles that of the US in Vietnam in 1970s, rejecting US claims of Tehran’s arms transfer to Houthi forces as an attempt to justify the defeat of its allies.
“Yemen has turned into a Vietnam for Saudi Arabia, just as Americans suffered a defeat in Vietnam despite being fully equipped and were forced to retreat from Southeast Asia in humiliation,” Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to the Leader of Islamic Revolution, said in an interview with the Al-Alam on Wednesday, as cited by Press TV.
Velayati said the Saudi war on Yemen comes at a time when the kingdom is grappling with numerous woes, including a budget deficit which has forced the rulers in Riyadh to hold a group of royals captive under what is claimed to be an anti-graft campaign.
“Neither Saudi Arabia is stronger than Americans, nor are the Yemenis weaker than the Vietnamese,” he said, emphasizing that the people of Yemen will eventually emerge victorious.
