If you click the link under each photo, it will take you to Defense Blog that found pics of AMX-56 LeClerc Main Battle Tanks and Humvees mounting quad Kornet Anti-Tank missiles in Yemen from the UAE.

I make note of it on this blog because the GCC appears to be becoming more involved in fighting that seems to be intensifying there.

I think we're all missing a major story in Yemen.  Independent journalist aren't covering it (and I don't blame them) but I get get the impression that the proxy war between Iran and the GCC is reaching a new phase.

Forget Syria.  Its becoming a sideshow.  Turkey's assault on the Kurds seems like an attempt to shape borders to their liking.  My guess is that a stalemate is being "shaped" by the powers that be.  Yemen is a different kettle of fish.  The GCC and Iran are playing for keeps. Start focusing on Yemen.
