"Small people talk about people, average people talk about events, great people talk about ideas" Eleanor Roosevelt
Frankly I don't see the Saudi's as a stabilizing force... especially since they...not Iran...are the biggest supporters of terrorism (ISIS, Al Qaeda, Taliban, Wahabbists, Charlie Hebdo, Fort Hood, etc....) in the world. Who could forget 9/11 or that 19 of the 20 hijackers were Saudi citizens? The Saudi's pushed for the US to invade Iraq and then supported Al Qaeda to kill US troops and Shiite. Seriously, with allies like that who needs enemies?
The Saudi's have dedicated 100 jets plus helicopters and ground forces. A sizable Saudi ground force is now massing about 20 miles from the Yemeni border. The Egyptians have contributed naval vessels and the US is contributing intelligence, reconnaissance, and air-refueling tankers. The rest of the coalition has contributed fighter aircraft ... Morocco (15), Jordan (15), Sudan (15), Kuwait (15), Bahrain (15), UAE (30), Qatar (10), Pakistan (15).
The Saudi's report that all Yemeni military aircraft have been destroyed and coalition air assets continue to attack air defenses, arms depots, and communications lines. It seems to me they are "shaping the battlefield" as a precursor to a ground invasion. The Houthi rebels continue to pound the city of Aden with tank munitions and reports from Aden say the city is in chaos and hospitals are filling up with wounded civilians.
Iran, Lebanon, and Iraq (all majority Shiite states) have condemned the coalition operation.
The US is in the odd position of assisting the Shia of Iraq against Sunni ISIS while assisting the Sunni coalition attacks on the Shia of Yemen.
