Jordan tells Saudi Arabia to get out of Yemen while they can

Seemingly oblique comment from Jordan's King Abdullah in interview with Brett Baier on Fox News --

As commander of special operations many years ago, I was involved in training of Yemeni special forces, so I know the complications of Yemen .. I think that .. I would humbly suggest that the quicker we find a political situation to that issue, the better.

Much of the focus of the subsequent panel discussion was on his remarks about his Iran and the general impact of the Arab Spring. Yet he essentially just told his Gulf neighbours, and the US supporters of their Yemeni operation -- based on personal military experience -- that they're backing a loser.
