The war in #Yemen was not initiated by the Al #Saud or the Al Nahyan and therefore they are not concerned with ending it, they certainly wish to end it, but they are much weaker than that.

It is a war that has begun and will end in #Washington, specifically members of the Central Committee of the Republican Party. Not to stop the Iranian tide, nor to raise the glory of #Yemen, but rather to reduce the #American monetary debt.

The dilemma of wars in their entirety revolves around the "Summary of the situation", that is, the summary of the war or the overall gains, that is: (Has the war achieved its goals) ??
In the first months of the #Yemen war, I did a study for the (Washington Institute for .

Beste mensen, er is geen significante zeespiegelstijging, geen globalwarming, ijsberen gaat ook prima mee, stikstofcrisis is ook verzonnen, etc.
U wordt allemaal gefopt en de gepeperde rekening volgt nog 😈

Conversation that Matters & de voornaamste fysicus Freeman Dyson van Princeton University, die zegt dat modellen een goed werk doen om ons te helpen het klimaat te begrijpen, maar ze doen een zeer slechte job om het te voorspellen.
Where are the experts now, who were prophesying 12-13 years ago the thinning & disappearing of Arctic Sea Ice by year 2015?
The Arctic Se Ice extent is now only 2.4% below the 1979-2019 average for January. That's well within 1 SD.

#Yemen The Iranian Houthi militia uses food weapons to kill the Yemeni people and prevented the delivery of humanitarian aid to millions of Yemenis The spread of famine and disease outbreaks The most prominent results of this weapon
Not only did Houthi kill the two Yemenis in service of Iran's expansionist project, but he resorted to using food as a criminal weapon to punish the Yemeni people who rejected his authority.
While the United Nations provided him with political cover, Houthi prevented the delivery of humanitarian aid to millions of Yemenis
It caused people to starve to death, and tens of thousands of them were afflicted with a fatal epidemic

The citizens of Yemen have lived for almost 5 years under a total blockade by land, air, sea, and a media blackout! They have suffered what most of the world population can not even begin to imagine.

Now even their voice is under attack.

Please be a #VoiceForYemen 🙏

The US, UK, backed Saudi Coalition mercenary militia in Aden province cut off the international Aden - Djibouti cable, which led to the outage of 50% of the already damaged international internet traffic to Yemen.


The UD backed Saudi Coalition has been preventing entry of equipment to repair the prior damaged internet cable in Yemen, after the Coalition prevented a second cable; paid for by the Yemeni people in 2017 from being installed.

Please watch footage of the BBC's visit to the Sana'a International Airport in the Republic of Yemen on January 26, 2020 accompanied by a member of the Supreme Political Council, Muhammad Ali al-Houthi.

Shared by @bon2_o1sav4tjkp 🙏

Full Video at

A BBC Reporter speaking to Muhammad Ali al-Houthi states she has always been taken by the kindness and dignity of the Yemeni's, even the protest Yemeni have so much dignity. Then goes on to say al-Houthi's kind hospitality is so Yemeni but it is also Muhammad al-Houthi.

The Sana'a International Airport has been closed for more than for years, when asked when it will re-open, al-Houthi said, I believe if BBC sends their message clearly this will create peace, and support for the peace plan.

(The media silence helps this war to continue!)

There are a lot inaccuracies in here: the reason for contract soldiering in the #Gulf #GCC is NOT building a force that is more dispensable, or willing to take up arms against citizens - the primary reason is lack of indigenous capacity…
Staffing a military with just 300,000 nationals in #Qatar or 1,300,000 in the #UAE is impossible - plus the parallel militaries (Emiri Guard, Presidential Guard, National Guard) there to protect the state are always staffed with nationals NOT foreigners
The use of contracted mercenaries not integrated into the chain of command of the armed forces and not wearing uniform such as in the #UAE is a different story and very much an exception

1)An #AQAP leader was killed via U.S. drone strike in Wadi Ubaidah district of #Marib #Yemen, according to Yemeni news reports. The Wadi Ubaidah area is known as a long-standing stronghold for AQ militants in the country. Name of the leader was not stated.
2)Will be interesting to see which #AQAP official warranted the intel & military resources required to carry out a precise U.S. drone attack...AQAP in recent years has dwindled. As it stands now, top publicly known officials are leader Qassim al-Rimi and official Ibrahim al-Qosi.
3)Breaking: It appears that Qasim al-Rimi, leader of the Yemen-based #AQAP, was the individual targeted & killed in a U.S. drone strike on Saturday, January 25 in Wadi Ubaidah, east of #Sanaa - a longtime stronghold for the group. AQAP has yet to officially confirm his death.

The Saudi coalition that is warring against #Yemen is slowly crumbling. In recent months, #Sudan reduced its troop deployment from 15,000 to 5,000 - and now down to 675. #Iran is backing the #Houthi government against the #Saleh loyalists backed by the USA, #SaudiArabia & #UAE
The #Saudi-#UAE coalition against #Yemen includes 9 Arab state militaries, 10 support nations (including the USA), Blackwater/#Academi mercenaries, #alQaeda & #ISIS-Yemen. Yes, the USA is aligned with al Qaeda & ISIS forces in Yemen - just like in #Syria.
The #CIA continues to use #alQaeda & #ISIS to do the dirty work of the New World Order. Trump sells weapons to Saudi Arabia for the #MIC. The CIA then diverts some of the weapons from the Saudis to the terrorists. Once again, the POTUS has plausible deniability. #TerroristTrump

#UN organizations to support the Houthis .. !!

The picture is below for UN cars provided to Houthi? Have you entered the service of the Houthi militants?
The United Nations delivered SUVs to Houthi in Hodeidah, on the pretext of supporting demining operations, strangely enough, international reports confirmed more than once that the group was laying mines in the cities it controlled, but reports without punishment?
In addition, Human Rights Watch confirms, in a report, that mines laid by the Houthi group impede the delivery of aid to those in need.?

For the fifth consecutive day, Iranian militia "Houthis" imposed a comprehensive ban on the use of the Internet in Yemen
A criminal act contrary to international laws and norms in the complete absence of organizations concerned. Human rights.? #Yemen

@hrw These militias, by their insistence on committing a crime to cut off internet service, have turned Yemen into a prison that isolates 35 million people from the whole world ... all this in light of the shameful silence of the free world ..?
@hrw Internet crime was not the only crime ..? There are dozens and even hundreds of crimes that militias carry out daily in #Yemen

How does the United Nations practice shading the world by masking the law, trading in the suffering of the Yemeni people, destroying hopes and looting funds with the guise of peace and humanity and negotiations ..?
Whereas the Yemeni people have suffered pain since Sunsun, and while the Yemeni child looks at the world weakly and hopefully, in the hope that he will find someone who saves him from the oppression of the Houthi militias, the world will be silent?
The UN envoy comes to stop the will of the people in liberation and give the militias an opportunity to grow the sheep. Then the militias return to kill the people again and loot and seize their freedom in front of the eyes of the silent UN envoy?

On this hashtag #Houthi_Nations, will the Yemenis tweet all the crimes committed by the Iranian militia Houthis against the Yemeni people and with the full support of the international organization, in light of the shameful silence of humanitarian organizations?
In light of the United States' preoccupation with curbing terrorism in Tehran, the Iranian arm in Yemen, represented by the Houthi terrorist group, continues to kill, loot, starve and displace #Yemenis.

#UnitedNations deal with the peoples of countries subject to Iranian aggression through the militias of the terrorist regime in Tehran deployed in those countries as an international mediator dancing the corpses of peoples?

The Trump Admin. launched an unsuccessful attack against a 2nd senior Iranian official in #Yemen on the same night Soleimani was killed. Congress has not been briefed (not even at the classified briefing this week!). No justification has been provided.
The coordinated nature of these attacks raises further questions about the claim that Trump was reacting to an “imminent threat.” If these were part of a broader operation, then the failure to consult Congress is inexcusable. The American people need answers. #NoWarWithIran
This strike is also an escalation of U.S. involvement in Saudi Arabia’s war in #Yemen. The Pentagon has previously avoided direct involvement & last year the House & Senate passed a bipartisan resolution to end U.S. participation, which Trump vetoed.…

Gigantic implication of reported #Shahlai operation:

Says this was connected to Saudi war in #Yemen.

What on earth is the legal authority for that?

Not the #2002AUMF for Iraq.
Not the 2001AUMF for September 11.
No authority to use force against Houthis let alone Iran there.
Washington Post:

"The attempted strike on Shahlai also marks a departure for the Pentagon's mission in Yemen, which has sought to avoid direct involvement in fighting between Houthi forces and those backed by the Saudi-led coalition."
Is there a missing War Powers Report for the #Shahlai strike?

Read the Department of Defense's letter to Congress in 2018 which suggests this kind of action would trigger the reporting requirement under the #WarPowersResolution.

In the early hours of Friday, a #US led airstrike targeted a convoy exiting the #Baghdad International Airport, killing #Qassem_Soleimani,the commander of #Iran’s terrorist #Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Hashd al-Shaabi in #Iraq.
The death of #Soleimani caused a stir across the globe and filled the ranks of the #Iranian regime with terror. Regime supreme leader #Khamenei declared three days of mourning for his regime personally attended an emergency meeting of the Supreme National Security Council.
In a statement, the #SNSC described the death of Soleimani as a “great blow to the world of Islam.” Political observers and analysts perceive the demise of #Soleimani as a turning point in the region and an irreparable blow to the mullahs’ regime ruling #Iran.

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony…

Qasem a.k.a "Haj Qassem"
Huyu jamaa ni kamanda Mmoja maridadi sana wa IRAN kule kwao lakini nchi za magharibi wanamuita "The Shadow Commander"
Shuka nayo👇
Nini sababu ya marekani kufanya hivi? Juzi tukijiandaa na mwaka mpya (31dec)ubalozi wa marekani mjini #BAGHDAD Iraq ulishambuliwa na waandamanaji na kikundi cha Kata'ib #Hezbollah kiarabu wanaandika كتائب حزب الله, wakimaanisha Brigedia ya chama cha Mungu.
Hawa jamaa wanaungwa mkono na #Iran na wakati wanashambulia ubalozi huu walikua wakiimba "Death to America"(kifo kwa Marekani).
Ili kuelewa kinachoendelea,unahitaji kujua kwamba kuna uhasama mkubwa unaoendelea duniani kwa miaka mingi kati ya #Iran na Saudi Arabia.

#Iran has decided to directly respond against the #US assassination of #IRGC commander #QassemSoleimani and #Iraq commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes
#Iran #IRGC cmdr #QassemSoleimani movement was not a secret because it was understood that his killing will create a response.

He was killed in #Iraq by a #US order and #Iran will hit the #US by Khamenei order.

That will drag a wider confrontation

#Iran #QassemSoleimani commander was due to visit #Turkey President Erdogan and had a visit scheduled to #Lebanon.

His trips were known for many. The assassination will not at all affect Iran military and operationally because no one is indispensable.

The last few days of #US military build up make a lot of sense now. The killing of #Iran Quds Force commander Suleimani cannot be overstated as an escalatory event, even if US will have intended it as ultimate show of force.
Suleimani was the most visible face of Iran’s fight against #IslamicState and US in the region. A huge loss of knowledge and expertise for IRGC and humiliating for #Khamenei after his tweet taunting #Trump. The question now must be what an Iranian response will be.
Iran can not afford not to respond to this level of attack, but does not necessarily have to respond immediately. They will understand how vulnerable Trump is going into the electoral period. US military and energy assets across #Iraq are at high risk of rocket and mortar attack.
