GCC (except Oman) will intervene in the Yemeni civil war

Yikes. I can't see how this can possibly make things any better.

It also highlights the Gulfis anti-Shia/anti-Iran paranoia. When al Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula was taking control of towns in Yemen a few years ago, the Gulf monarchies didn't think it warranted intervention. But when a shia group starts gaining ground, in they go.
