Ansarullah would not have accomplished what they have so far if the Yemenis believed this was an Iranian takeover or that it’s a Sunni vs Shia conflict.
The vicious war the Najdi Bedouins launched in March 2015 has taken a heavy toll of Yemen’s civilian populations. There are increasing calls even from within the UN for war crimes charges against those responsible in the medieval kingdom.
Qatar has historically tried to operate outside the shadow of its larger more belligerent neighbor, Saudi Arabia. The latest Saudi-engineered crisis has provided Doha an opportunity to be even more assertive.
The Bani Saud and the Emiratis may be allies in their war on Yemen but inside the war-ravaged country, they are backing different factions that are fighting and killing each other.
As the Najdi Bedouins assemble their Arabian cousins and an assortment of Muslim rulers and dictators in Riyadh for a collective pledge of loyalty to the new master in the White House (aka Donald Trump), other news in the region appear to have fallen off the radar screen.
The UN says a Yemeni child dies every 10 minutes because of Bani Saud’s genocidal war on Yemen
Is Trump truly ignorant, is he deliberately acting mad or is he mentally unhinged? We look at the options.
More than 12,000 people have been killed in Yemen, most of them civilians, by the Saudi-led war. Damage to infrastructure is also immense. By attacking Yemen, the Bani Saud may have dug their own grave.
The Bani Saud clan appears hell-bent on breaking the spirit of resistance of the Yemeni people. But will they succeed or lose their kingdom in the process?
Facing imminent defeat at the hands of the Ansarallah in Yemen, the Saudis have become desperate. Their pet terrorists, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, have also failed so the takfiri terrorists have been unleashed in Yemen.
The Ansarallah fighter’s missile strike at a Saudi air base near Jeddah has sent the Saudi regime into frenzied panic. The Bani Saud have unleashed their paid agents worldwide accusing the Houthis (the label used for Ansarallah fighters) of firing the missile at the Kaaba with the intention of destroying Islam’s holiest site. Nothing could be further from the truth but as the saying goes, a lie is half way around the world before truth has had a chance to tie its shoelaces.2
The Saudi regime is guilty of mass genocide in Yemen, the poorest country in the region. It would be difficult to find this out from reading the West’s corporate-owned media.2
Gripped by multiple crises, the Bani Saud think buying more weapons from the West would get them security. This is likely to hasten their downfall.2
Major donors to political parties and to individual politicians have totally corrupted the American political system. This explains why wars are waged all over the world leading to much bloodshed and hatred for the US.2
With failure staring them in the face in their ill-conceived military campaign against Yemen, the Saudi regime has intensified attacks on civilians. Their latest outrage was committed on October 8 when more than 140 civilians were killed and some 525 injured in a missile strike on a gathering at a funeral ceremony. The Saudis have murdered more than 10,000 civilians in Yemen since March 2015. There are 22 million people facing starvation.2
The Saudi regime is waging a genocidal war on Yemen yet the world looks the other way. The people of Yemen, however, refuse to take it lying down.1
Yemen’s Ansarallah fighters have proved more than a match for the Saudi-led aggression against Yemen. Together with their allies they have forged ahead to establish a governing council in Sana‘a, the capital.
The Najdi Bedouins, their Arabian allies and the corporate Western media project the Yemenis’ struggle as being limited to the Zaydis of the north is meant to delegitimize it. The struggle is to reclaim Yemen’s sovereignty.2
The people of Bahrain and Yemen are both victims of Saudi aggression and crimes, writes Mansour Ali.
