Why are the "poor" Houthis an "intractable" problem for the US?

Many wonder why the Houthis, who are so poor, cannot be "solved" with expensive missiles, aircraft carriers, F-35 fighter jets and an entire army of ships in the Red Sea.

The Houthis were also constantly bombed for 10 years by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and finally they had to sit down and negotiate with the Houthis again.

Absolutely nothing helped them, and even the Houthis became more and more powerful to the point of having ballistic missiles with which they can hit every point in Saudi Arabia.

Why?

The USA and all of NATO, after 20 years of war with a number of 35,000 to 100,000 Talibans in Afghanistan, armed only with rifles, home-made explosives and sandals, failed to win a victory.

The US and the coalition used the most advanced technology, tanks, armored vehicles, several generations of fighter jets, bombers, helicopters, massive infantry, intelegance, and failed.

The Taliban's key advantage was the terrible mountainous terrain, which the Taliban skillfully exploited. They were taking cover and hidding in bunkers hidden deep in the mountains. Then their ideology of "holy war" and patience above all to fight as much as necessary.

Well consider the Houthis in Yemen with all those advantages and characteristics, just add to that 2 million active and reserve military personnel, advanced weapons like ballistic missiles, torpedoes, kamikaze drones and much more.

To defeat the Houthis, the US needs a 5 million army to launch a ground offensive, and the odds are 50-50.
