Yemen: Lessons to be learned.

By       (Page 1 of 3 pages)   3 comments
Message Mohammad Ala

Since 2015, Yemen has been bombed using Western-made military arms. Basically the whole country has been destroyed for no good reason(s). Dropping bombs must stop.

There are many lessons in bombing any country; in this case, Yemen.

The bomb, destroy, and destabilize campaign in West Asia came from the most powerful lobby in the USA. You may guess which organization that is.

It is hard to predict how a political settlement in Yemen could look like. The country is still divided over ethnic, religious, tribal and ideological viewpoints. Even though UAE/Saudi/UK actors did fuel this tension, it was there before the war, and likely will be after it. For the sake of its people, let us hope peaceful solutions would be found and implemented mostly by regional powers.

Lesson one: Ancient cultures are not easy to eradicate so as to loot their resources

A lesson for countries that have short history and culture.

Lesson two: You had your chances

The Imperialist/Colonial Empires of the past and present had their opportunity to establish peace and well-being amongst the peoples of many regions, but all they had in mind to accomplish was the plundering of those people and their national resources. Yes, it will be a lot to ask of those nations and their people to trust Russia and China since many regional countries will scream that they are no different from Western Imperial powers.

Lesson three: The stranglehold that the Zionists have on Western media, presidents, donors to political parties, needs to stop

Nothing we've been told about the war in Yemen is true.

Lesson Four: illegal sanctions must stop

Supplying the Houthi with drones to stage sustained attacks on Saudi oil production seems to be working. Disrupting the Saudi supply complicates the embargo on Venezuela and Iran and places upward price pressure on oil, with multiple negative consequences. There is greater incentive than ever before for importers of oil to lift the illegal embargoes. The Western economies are experiencing recession jitters and the threat of an oil-price spike could push things to a tipping point and worldwide recession. To avoid worldwide recession Western countries should remove illegal sanctions and keep matters calm in the international oil markets.

Lesson Five: Stop using wrong terms for historical names that have been used for over 2500 years; namely, West As ia and Persian Gulf

Lesson Six: for the United Nations and its members: Interviewing a dozen of MPs from Sweden, Denmark, Holland, to name a few, these countries have proven not to vote independently. The United Nations and its Council have sided with Western imperial powers against less powerful countries

Lesson Seven: No more wars

Most Western and American voters do not want more war(s) and foreign adventures. That portion of his platform is partly what Mr. Trump was elected. Going to war might be a hard sell with the American people, especially if it involved boots on the ground. Western and American people may have no say. It might be similar to October 2002 and President Bush's attack against Iraq.

Iran, pronounced Eeran NOT Eye-ran...".> Hint: Italy: Eetaly not Eye-taly. Iran has been in the region properly termed 'West Asia' -- not the 'Middle East' for thousand of years. (more...)
