Take a look at THIS twitter link on the second anniversary of the mayhem in Yemen by foreign powers. Some dumbo is asking, quote: "Houthis n their million followers agree for UN monitored referendum to decide the future of Yemen?" This weird sectarianist is implying that the war is all about referendum .. as if the neighboring Kingdom is sooo democratic that it won't allow anyone in the region to disregard the will of the people and the moment Ansarullah agrees to a referendum in Yemen, the Saudi invasion will end. It's too difficult or too embarrassing for these folks to comprehend that if Ansarullah says "yes" to a referendum, the Saudis will be the first ones to freak out and call for an emergency session in Washington with another $2b worth of bombs sent at the behest of the Oval Office.
The anti Ansarullah crowd has been trying it's best of misconstrue facts by portraying Ansarullah as a "typical Hezbollah-Iran linked group" that's cashing in on the sentiments of its supporters by demonizing USA and Israel. The brainless slander circulating around is that Houthis are linked to the corrupt Abdullah al-Saleh who was once linked to AlQaeda. In the first place, Abdullah Saleh (despite his unsatisfactory rule of 32 years) never had links with AQ. Let's come back to our senses for the sake of Allah Almighty! Saleh is a Zaidi Shiia, AlQaeda is staunchly Salafist. Another disgusting nonsense claims that the Houthis took control of the north with the help of Ali Abdullah Saleh. The fact is that despite Abdullah Saleh being a Zaidi Shiia, the Houthis have fought and struggled against his government whom they persistently perceived as corrupt and incompetent since 2004. Houthis never reconciled with Saleh, though their opposition to Saleh may have turned quieter .. NOT because they ever supported him .. because since 2014 the Houthis had a much stronger and more destructive opposition to tackle consisting of foreign proxy powers adamant to quell -- what they feared -- an Iran-like ideology sprouting in Yemen. The anti Ansarullah crowd is intentionally silent over the fact that Ansarullah has lots of local-political agenda, namely ending economic under-development, political marginalization in Yemen and corruption at governmental level. Ansarullah has voiced for autonomy in areas where they are predominant; they aren't hankering after autonomy in all of Yemen. Therefor even if the Hirak Movement wins the referendum for secession of south Yemen, it carries no threats for Ansarullah.
Funny why this Salafist cult has never bothered to clarify how the act of Saudi preemptive bombing & ground invasion of Yemen fits into their own hyperbole, let alone the actual situation. These are the same people who have been ceaselessly barking that "Iran's interference to help Houthis is designed to spread Shiia influence in the region." But their devious silence over the neighboring Kingdom's physical presence in Yemen and non-stop bombing leading to war crimes and genocide is even more deafening than their rabid barks!
Wrap up for dummies:After Abdullah al-Saleh was wounded in an attack in September 2011, Hadi became the acting President. He was then made the president for a two-year transitional period on February 21, 2012 in an "election" in which he was the only candidate. In January 2014 his mandate was extended for another year but he continued to be in power with no signs of stepping down. In January 2015, Ansarullah revolutionists seized the presidential palace; Hadi resigned and was put under house arrest. A month later he escaped to Aden (his hometown) in south Yemen, authorized himself to annul his resignation renouncing Ansarullah uprising as "unconstitutional." Back in Sanaa, north Yemen, Ansarullah established a Supreme Revolutionary Committee to form a government replacing Hadi and his cabinet that would serve as Yemen's interim authority. On March 25, 2015 Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi fled Aden to Saudi Arabia. On March 26, 2015, Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich gulf states of the Arabian peninsula launched their bombing campaign non-stop against the tiny, peaceful country of Yemen situated along the southwestern belt of the Peninsula. The purpose of this naked aggression is to reinstall the government of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, a puppet ally of Riyadh and the West. Since the past two years the invaders have been hoping to drive out the indigenous Ansarullah revolutionists and restore Hadi's rule. The Saudi coalition has complete support of USA and Britain who have been supplying weapons, signaling the green light to kill as many civilians as desired to crush the rising power and popularity of Ansarullah.
According to RT 100,000 Yemeni demonstrators filled Sanaa's al-Sabin Square. But other sources have opined that the gathering was still larger. It's been two years and the Yemeni people are waiting for the world to know what the Western powers are doing to them via their gulf Arab allies. Close to 15,000 civilians killed, hundreds of thousands homeless, injured, maimed, orphaned, starving and 90% of the infrastructure flattened with acute shortage of food and potable water. And we boastabout our planet as the "modern world?" Any surprise why the mainstream media has NOT MENTIONED A WORD on the 2nd anniversary of the genocide in Yemen?
