    Default So few Brits are standing up for Yemen



    Few people have demonstrated against Ahmed Asiri who is the spokesperson on the war on yemen!

    I wonder why people did not try to make a petition to stop him from entering the UK.

    Is too many civilian people suffering from famine and dying in yemen not enough for that?

    Or the media is not reporting about what happens in Yemen at all?

    Or yemeni people do not matter?

    Or Sudia is a friend that can do what it wants?

    There was only few from al qaeda, and they are gaining power because of the war.

    Other people are having civil war, since they did not get their rights!

    The north people, with the previous president and his supporters are fighting the current president with Sudia and co.

    However, having terrorist (fewer than other countries), does not justify killing mass civilians, and putting 1/3 of the country under severe famine!

    So no much news report on yemen war in UK? I think there was some discussion in the UK about not giving KSA Weapons because of the war in yemen.

    I predict (2% chance) that America, Russia and China ...etc would like to nuke the hell out of the world in few years.

    Human rights is complete BS. It's being violated left, right and centre and what awesome is that it's the government who usually does it.

    It would be hard to convince many people about that.

    There is nothing to convince. If people open their eye's they'll be able to see it. People are bothered more about being in their comfort zone than knowing more about the world they live in. It's pathetic really.

    Unfortunately, the war in Yemen is not often reported on. Perhaps the reason for that is because Saudi Arabia remains a major economic partner for the West.

    It's unclear what Trump's stance will be on Middle East policy, but likely the status quo will remain i.e. retain ties with Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Iraqi government and oppose Iranian influence. Within that scope, America and the West will likely continue to aid Saudi Arabia's bombing of Yemeni civilians.

    In public opinion however, the Houthi fighters are rugged sandal wearing old AK-47 weilding Yemenis that are fighting a modern equiped invading force from Saudi Arabia, and they are fighting against religious extremists of al-qaeda. What's not to like about the Houthis? Because the Saudi Army gets defeated on the ground against the Houthis, the Saudis have taken a scorched earth bombing campaign strategy that includes bombing civilian targets, the Saudis are currently taking part in major atrocities and the West is indirectly an accomplice by providing the Saudis with weapons.

    The U.S. State Department does not classify the Houthis as terrorists, neither does the U.N.

    I think it's safe to say that humans have enough intelligence to know if what someone does is terrorism or not. I don't think we need to make sure the government brands them as terrorists to acknowledge them as one. Just see their track record.

    Why are the Houthis terrorists in your opinion?

    You nor cofc have absolutely no clue about what is going on in Yemen.

    Here are the reasons why I believe the Houthis are not terrorists:

    They are from Yemen and have only fought in Yemen.

    They are fighting against a foreign invaision force from Saudi Arabia.

    They have not willfully attacked civilian targets, within nor beyond Yemen.

    They are fighting against Al Qaeda in Yemen (actual terrorists).

    Their focus is Yemen, where they are from and never directed attacks outside of Yemen.

    and furthermore, neither the U.S. State Department nor the U.N. have classified the Houthis as terrorists.

    So what are your reasons for why they are terrorists?

    I never said that they are. Read my post properly.

    And if what you say is true, then the Houthis are not terrorists.

    They tried to assassin the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, but now they are allies.

    They wanted change like some other Arab spring countries, but the saudis would not allow that in their direct border allies which they control!

    Obama orchestrated the Arab spring to destabilize the region while blaming Bush.

    It was already planned by the intelligence agencies, and the president is just a puppet that follows it. it started with invading Iraq, with Bush, but when Obama came to power he started all the other wars, and asked/allowed other allies to wage wars instead of america. He, also, weakened without war, but with two presidents down. Yet the only remaining country on the list is Iran.

    The other plan, which probably Trump would have to work on, weather he likes it or not, is to economically weaken Europe, then Russia, then China, but not sure how far he can go with it.
