This is coolbert:

Yet one more instance of the Islamic rebel forces victorious over the military of the central government.

NOT that there is going to be a civil war, there is now and has been for some time a civil war.

"Hadi warns of Yemen civil war, rebels cry ‘victory’"

"SANAA: President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi warned Tuesday of  'civil war' in Sunni-majority Yemen and vowed to restore state authority as Shiite rebels in apparent near-total control of Sanaa hailed their 'victory.'”

"Houthi rebels took all other key state institutions in the capital, overshadowing a U.N.-brokered peace deal."

"In a televised speech, rebel leader Abdul-Malek al-Houthi hailed what he called the “victory” of his fighters."

Houthi tribesmen SHIA and not SUNNI!

Yemen of course the ancestral home of Bin Laden and reputedly having a very active Al Qaeda affiliate. We might expect the area to be a hotbed of insurrection and Islamic fundamentalism but Sunni and not Shia.
