Perhaps I am too naive, but it seems to me that there wouldn't be a civil war threat if the man stepped down now, as requested?

Exactly Mary, if he'd just leave quietly and peacefully there'd be no threat. But like the saying goes, "some people's minds are like cement: all mixed up and set in their ways." He's shaking in his boots and is lashing out and making all these threats simply because he doesn't want to go down without a fight and if there is a civil war he'll no dobut be the sole cause and conspirator of it but will try to blame everybody else for it except the one person he should blame, the one that is truly at fault: the person he sees in the mirror.

As we have supported the government in Yemen, all America can do is stand back and see what happens.
