For nearly three years the Yemen conflict has simmered, at times escalating to deadly levels, forcing the country's hapless population to flee for their lives in search of refuge.In essence, what was once dubbed as the Yemeni spring has turned out to be the worst of nightmares, with the Houthis relentless in acting as a proxy for Iran regardless of the damage they inflict on the country.While Saleh's change of heart is certainly welcome, one must not forget his tendency to switch sides depending on what best serves his interests. Still, we hope this new approach aims to benefit the Yemeni people rather than the ousted leader.
