    On this episode of Fault Lines, we discuss the US Senate's move to advance debate and subsequently allow a floor vote regarding US support for Saudi Arabia in their conflict with Yemen. Is US policy on this situation poised to change, or will this simply become a case of politicians talking tough without taking any meaningful action?
