President Ali Saleh: A Yemenie War Criminal in Obama's Court

(WASHINGTON D.C.) - Much like Gandhi’s Salt March in India in 1930 the “March of Life” in Yemen began in the besieged bombed southern city of Taiz with tens of thousands of men, women, and children, walking for five days to the northern capitol city of Sana to protest the illegal immunity given the blood and money thirsty tyrant, President Ali Abdullah Saleh by the U.S. – Saudi Plan.

The plan calls for a transfer of power from Saleh to his vice president while he remains in power for three months.

Yemen’s population wholeheartedly rejects this appeasing plan. Saleh is a chronic liar who has never lived up to any promise or agreement he’s ever made or signed, much life all of Israel’s prime ministers.

Upon arriving in Sana the peaceful March of Life became the “March of Death”, when the exhausted protesters were met by the murderous Republican Guard led by Saleh’s son, who opened fire on the protesters killing at least 13 and wounding scores of civilians.

In keeping with America’s blind support of Arab dictators, the Jewish American Ambassador to Yemen, Gerald Felerstein, held a press conference at the U.S. Embassy (even prior to the arrival of the March to the capitol Sana) arrogantly and obnoxiously warning that this March “is aimed to cause chaos and violence…it seems to have the intention not to carry out a peaceful march…and will provoke a violent response by the security forces”.

These shocking remarks earned the Ambassador and the U.S. the scorn and hatred of the Yemenie population who’ve always known that Saleh is an American mole and puppet.

Like Saleh, President Obama, the Sultan of Drone massacres in the Arab and Muslim world. has betrayed his every promise as well as having shred the American Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the civil liberties of the American people.

He has shown the world that he is a spineless leader who if opposed immediately caves in. A man apparently suffering from an inferiority complex to those in power whether in Corporate America, Congress, the extreme right wing of the Republican Party, special interests, the media; and most especially to Israel that slapped him back into kosher coherence and submissiveness more so than any previous American President.

As a coddler of murderous Arab tyrants he’s been late and conflicted to act courageously and forcefully to support the Arab Spring that seeks freedom from tyranny and free democratic governments.

In an inexplicable slap to American interests in Yemen, Obama has stupidly invited Saleh to come to the U.S. under the pretense of medical treatment; making the U.S. a state that harbors terrorists turning the Bush Doctrine of attacking States that harbor terrorists on its head.

What on earth would prompt Obama to harbor and coddle this terrorist and allow him entry into the United States?

The answer my friend is the alleged “war on terror” that has justified America’s wars and total support of dictators. As long as these tyrants purportedly are fighting a real or imagined anti-American “terror” group, they are free to annihilate their people while keeping their rule and stolen treasures under American protection.

If you kill “them”, you are a U.S. ally, thereby entitled to billions of tax dollars, weapons, international protection, and be hailed as a freedom fighter.

To America, Saleh’s value lies in his alleged fight against “Al Qaeda.”.

Hilary Clinton became the first U.S. Secretary of State to visit Yemen in early January 2011, just two weeks prior to the uprising. She outlined the reason behind America’s support for Saleh the murderer.

She said:

“We face a common threat posed by the terrorists and al-Qaeda… I want to be frank about the fact that there are terrorists operating from Yemen’s territory today…stopping these threats would be a priority for any nation, and it is a priority for us.”

Hence, the lives of billions of civilians on this planet are simply collateral damage to western imperialistic thirst and greed for natural resources found under the feet of the dark people, no more so than the oil beneath Arab feet.

America thinks with its guns; not its mind, and certainly not its heart.

Obama should retain some honor and dignity for himself and his country by refusing to allow Yemen’s terrorist, President Ali Abdullah Saleh, to enter this nation.

Rather he should refer him to the International Criminal Court for prosecution of his war crimes. But that would mean America truly believes in the sanctity of life, human rights, and justice; virtues belied by its addiction to war and oil.

American can ill afford to lose the Arab and Muslim world due to its blind adoption of Israel’s policies of constant war and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians as well as its support of Arab dictators.

Past and future American Presidents in their stupefying short term foreign policy in the Arab/Muslim world will make the prophecy of a “Clash of Civilizations” a reality; and such a conflict can only lead to the demise of the American-Israeli-European imperial hegemony.

President Obama, for the sake of your legacy, America’s national interests, American values of freedom and justice, you must reject Saleh’s entry into this country. He deserves prison not a suite in a New York City Hotel.

End Israeli apartheid

and back home? obama signed NDAA on Friday. Sorry to those to whom I may have interrrupted your football or video game. THe U.S. is in the same boat, jsut a bit different. Instead of killing Americans with guns like in 3rd world countries, they use vaccines, GMO food, pharma drugs, and social engineering to kill us.. The U.S. is NO different than Palestine, its just that ours is kinda hidden in stealth and propaganda..same thing tho.

Update: Another Christmas, another slaughter of Christians by members of the so-called "religion of peace." The Boko Haram, a "radical Muslim sect" as the Associated Press puts it, claimed credit for bombing a Nigerian Catholic church on Christmas, killing 35 and wounding 52. What do the Boko Haram want? A sect spokesman calling himself Abul-Qaqa offered this in an interview with The Daily Trust, the newspaper of record across Nigeria's Muslim north. "There will never be peace until our demands are met," he said. "We want all our brothers who have been incarcerated to be released, we want full implementation of the Sharia system and we want democracy and the constitution to be suspended." Any surprises here? Only one. It is the idea that slaughtering Christians constitutes radicalism. Webster's third definition of the word "radical" defines it as "marked by a considerable departure from the usual or the traditional." This is the Boko Haram's second slaughter of Christians on Christmas. Last year they took credit for a series of Christmas Eve bombings that left at least 32 dead and 74 wounded. And lest anyone think that the sect's taste for blood is a "holiday thing," it should be noted that they followed last year's Christmas Eve attack with an Aug. 26 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in the Nigerian capital city of Abuja, that killed 24 people and wounded 116 others. They followed that atrocity with a series of attacks on November 4th, killing more than 100.

(AP) LAGOS, Nigeria - An explosion ripped through a Catholic church during Christmas Mass near Nigeria's capital Sunday, killing at least 25 people there, officials said. A radical Muslim sect claimed the attack and another bombing near a church in the restive city of Jos, as explosions also struck the nation's northeast.

The Christmas Day attacks show the growing national ambition of the sect known as Boko Haram, which is responsible for at least 495 killings this year alone, according to an Associated Press count. The assaults come a year after a series of Christmas Eve bombings in Jos claimed by the militants left at least 32 dead and 74 wounded. Their militant and fundamentalist views on Islam have earned them the nickname "Nigerian Taliban."

The first explosion on Sunday struck St. Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla, a town in Niger state close to the capital, Abuja, authorities said. Rescue workers recovered at least 25 bodies from the church and officials continued to tally those wounded in various hospitals, said Slaku Luguard, a coordinator with Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency.

His agency already has acknowledged it didn't have enough ambulances immediately on hand to help the wounded. Luguard also said an angry crowd that gathered at the blast site hampered rescue efforts as they refused to allow workers inside.

"We're trying to calm the situation," Luguard said. "There are some angry people around trying to cause problems."

Editor: That is terrible, any time the word 'radical' comes up we should look closely, and there is no excuse for burning any church or synagogue or mosque ever.  I will write an article in the near future that will  help people gain a better understanding of who is who in this world of labels.  Palestinians fighting for their very lives are in a category of their own.  The 'radical Muslim' is found in many places, and one of the most prevalent is Saudi Arabia.  This was not the story of Iraq, Saddam Hussein allowed religious freedom, he didn't deny women rights, this happens in the countries that the U.S. considers allies, like Yemen, Saudi Arabia and of course Afghanistan.  In Africa there are Islamic groups that are fairly detached and their lives are rooted in poverty and violence that largely ties back to the colonizing of third-world countries by England, France, Italy, etc.
