Yemen’s ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh killed in Sana fighting. How someone at his level could be caught out on the street in an urban combat zone, where snipers would have a shot at him, is one hell of a security failure – the kind of goof that people get shot for, literally.
Yemen’s ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh killed in Sana fighting
It appears that Saleh had changed sides again, going back with the Saudis, and using the old tactic of divide and conquer inside the Houthi ranks, but siding with what the Houthi’s describe as extremist militias.
Verification of these claims may or may not resolve what really happened and why, as there will be two passionate sides.
There is no telling what the Saudis will do now. They failed to subdue the poorest Arab nation on the planet, guilty of only wanting a representative government.
Something the Royals feel would eventually spread to Saudi Arabia, and thus that gave them the right to attack Yemen to put in the usual puppet government.
The Saudi military option failed despite having total military superiority over Yemen. This was probably the most lopsided fight in modern history, which included the Western fake democracy bottom feeders selling more weapons and providing combat support logistics for the Saudi bombing campaign.
When Saudi soldiers began coming home in body bags, a shift was made to use mercenaries to soak up the Houthi bullets. And, despite a complete air and naval blockade by Saudi Arabia, which the UN never sanctioned it for, the pitiful Saudis still continued to claim that the war was only continuing due to Iranian military support.
The Royals never explained how this military support could actually get into Yemen when food and medicine for civilians could not. And let’s not forget, this blockade also stopped Yemenis flying from out of the country to seek medical care, a war crime in itself.
The Yemeni war is a stain for the Royal Family, which foolishly exposed itself as a terror organization, and the war may eventually bring the Saudi hierarchy down. Fortunately those victims suing for damages would then have a lot of assets
