It was supposed to be a war that would last for a short period of time: days, if not, just a few months. But almost five years after it started, the Saudi-led alliance has found itself in a quagmire that it cannot win.

One of the countries may have finally realized that this war is not winnable. The UAE has drawn down its forces in Yemen.

It says their forces will be redeployed, but the conclusion reached by many is that it has realized that continuing this war would threaten the tiny Persian Gulf Island's security.
