SA's got some nice hardware, but the government doesn't have much popular support. Iran's bad, but they are at least a functioning (more or less) nation-state.

Assuming outside intervention isn't possible, I'd put my money on Iran.

The Saudi coalition and it's mercenaries are getting their butts ravaged by barefoot tribal soldiers from the poorest arab country. The coalition is so horribly bad that it's like a joke.

The Yemeni fighters are worthy of much respect.

Next time I enter the thread, I see an example of that (although a mild one, that is true), unprovoked given the context (as I have said, I do not care for the histories these people have) so I had to react, it was a matter of principle. Yet, my reaction was honest in its sadness related to my previous post and my question was indeed sincere; I really wanted to know if that is something he has to resort to.
I appreciate it.

I think a way to get around that sort of factionalism is for people to focus on what they have in common. I tried playing Heroes of the Storm with some people on the board because I thought it would help create commonality. In real life it is much easier to be friends with people who have those difference views because you already have that rapport and it is a more human interaction. It is how the US Supreme Court can be so ideologically different but yet have a lot of respect for one another. They spend so much time together.

As Destron said, they've got some nice toys. Their military spending is 3rd in the world, I imagine they've got the best the US is willing to sell. Now, having lots of money is not a guarantee of success, you could throw money into a pit and spend a lot that way (that works both literally and figuratively ). So their army is quite big and well equipped.

I've also heard they are quite disorganized and of poor quality in terms of training. Their pitiful performance in the Yemen war seems to confirm that, but many world defining military powers started out shaky so lets not throw them out either.

If left without US support they could crumble fast or they could rise to the challenge and be all the stronger for it. In either outcome with such a big army an unchained SA would be problematic. Just imagine if revolutionaries or someone like the IS got a hold of those weapons.

I am a loyal supporter of upism and a fervent critic of all downists. Uppers like me believe in freedom, family and superlatives - while those dumb and dangerous downers mean to fundamentally change our country's way of life. Could you really trust someone that comes from beneath the political spectrum? I didn't think so!

So be a patriot like me and support up-candidates in your next election and together we can restore our nation's greatness that never was.

At least you are aware of your bias and factionalism.

How are things at the Campaign for the Freedom of Information?

I'm sorry, I can't talk about that.
