Exposed to a regional proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia, plagued by an entrenched Al-Qaeda affiliate, and divided by tribal disputes and a secession movement, the country has become a poster child for everything that can go wrong in the Arab world.To ensure that the recent overthrow of its government by the Shiite Houthi rebel movement does not deal Yemen the lethal blow that it has avoided so far, the international community must not abandon the country in what may be its hour of greatest need.From 2004 to 2010, the group fought six wars against the Yemeni government and even skirmished with Saudi Arabia.The region was once a stronghold of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, an affiliate of the global terrorist organization.Unless its international allies throw it a lifeline, it risks being swallowed by a sea of disorder that could imperil the entire region.
