“There must be a restoration of the legitimacy of President Hadi's. We have to address this through all the Security Council and [Gulf Cooperation Council] Initiatives,” he said.Let's talk about restoration and the legitimacy of Hadi's Presidency:
Hadi was installed after one of those so called Arab Springs- aka engineered colour revolution aka western backed installation of puppet regime. So his legitimacy is questionable and suspect.
Let's recall together that this man actually quit. He stepped down. His cabinet quit and he quit!
There was no overthrow. No coup. Nothing like that. He QUIT!
So, it’s difficult to understand Ban Ki saying he should be ‘reinstated’(“restore ,someone or something, to their former position or condition”) Why should he be ‘reinstated’ when he stepped down! As did his entire cabinet! Why should the Yemenis reinstate a leader and cabinet that quit!Sanaa, Yemen (CNN)Yemen's President resigned Thursday night shortly after his Prime Minister and the Cabinet stepped down -- seismic changes in the country's political scene that come just one day after the government and Houthi rebels struck a tentative peace deal meant to end days of turmoil
If they didn't want the job, why force them back into it? Doesn't make sense? Clearly more is afoot!
And so it begins- Ban Ki is insisting a government that quit be reinstated. Suggestive to me that others want this government in place......
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with Saudi King Salman and his top advisers in Riyadh Sunday to discuss the recent power-grab in neighboring Yemen by Houthi rebels.Doesn't it seem more realistic, in light of President Hadi and his cabinet quitting, that someone else should lead- Clearly Hadi didn’t want the job, or something like that? So the Houthis stepped in to fill the void that the quitters left and now- the quitters have to be reinstated or ‘a civil war looms’
Yes, that's correct- A civil war looms!
"Civil war" Where and when has the mass media spoon fed it's audience this meme previously? Libya? Syria.? Two nations that popped instantly to mind.
With full Houthi takeover of Yemen, civil war looms
The quitter President and his quitter cabinet left the country with a power vacuum for over two weeks and the Houthis stepped in. They created a presidential council that would function as an interim government for two years.
On Friday the Zaidi Shiite rebels dissolved parliament and announced the creation of a presidential council that will act as an interim government for two years. Yemen has lacked a functioning government since January 22, when President Abd-Rabbu Mansour and his cabinet resigned
The Shiite militia’s chief Abdel Malek Al-Houthi tried to reassure the nation in a televised address on Saturday. “This historic and responsible initiative is in the interest of the country… because it fills a political vacuum,” he told supporters gathered in a northern Sanaa stadium.Indeed, it fills a vacuum left by a government that stepped down! As soon as that happened the GCC led by Saudi Arabia (bad cop), on the leash of the US (good cop) and Israel, declared this was a coup!
The Saudi-led Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) swiftly rejected the Houthi declaration as a coup. The US, which continues counterterrorism operations in Yemen despite the political upheaval, was more subdued in its criticism, saying that the Houthi take over did “not meet the standards of a consensus-based solution to Yemen’s political crisis.
If they are alone, there is a strong possibility that this could fall very easily,” says Hakim Almasmari, editor in chief of the Yemen Post. He also says it's possible that the Houthis have private "side deals" with other Yemeni political factions that could buy them more time in power.
The Houthis surprisingly appointed a long-time opponent, General Mahmud Al-Subaihi, as acting defense minister and Jalal al-Rowaishan as acting interior minister, posts they abandoned last month. Some speculate they were pressured into the positions.Pressured into the postions? Maybe. But, maybe not.
Here come's Al Qaeda!
Just when the US and Israel need them. That always seems to happen....
How often does that scenario repeat?
Bigger war?The takeover has raised concerns of open conflict between Houthi supporters and opponents. Yemen experts warn that Al Qaeda will likely play the sectarian card to fan opposition to the Houthis and recruit disaffected Sunni Arabs
