What Does Blackwater Do in Yemen?Salem-News.com Foreign Affairs
The presence of this company in Yemen indicates that the House of Saud seeks a way out of the Yemeni quagmire at any cost.
(SALEM, Ore.) - The company formerly known as Blackwater, now called XE, has forces on the ground in Yemen, according to Yemeni journalist Abdullah bin Amer.
In a report on the website Yemen Press, Amer wrote that Blackwater, whose license in Iraq was revoked by Baghdad for committing crimes, sent military forces into Yemen, reportedly at the request of Saudi Arabia.
During the seven months of aggression against Yemen, Saudi Arabia has not spared any effort to commit bloody crimes against the Yemenis; however, it has failed to achieve any of its goals.
Not only has Saudi Arabia failed to restore to power the fugitive President Mansour Hadi or the Prime Minister Khaled Mahafoudh Bahah... its southern border have turned to a part of the battlefront of Yemeni revolutionaries, and dozens of military bases of Saudi Arabia have come under the control of Ansarullah and the Yemeni army.
These successive failures of Saudi Arabia have made it seek another way out. For this purpose, Saudis are reported to have hired mercenaries from Sudan, and mercenary soldiers from Colombia.
They are apparently far more than a mercenary army, and the notorious Blackwater (XE) Company has also had a share in the war against Yemen.
The mercenaries of Blackwater are reported to have entered Yemen under the guise of the Colombian soldiers. Recently, a Colombian-based media group reported that over the next few months, more than 800 Colombian military forces will enter Sana, Yemen, to support Saudi offensive strikes, and to support Saudi allies fighting in Yemen.
Colombia is an important center for Blackwater to recruit and train its forces, due to ties the US has with Colombia. Many describe Colombia as the Israel of the US in Latin America.
Blackwater is the first terrorist organization in the world which recruits mercenaries and has built a special army and an assassination Squad. Blackwater Company has more than 2700 soldiers and a fleet of airplanes.
Blackwater is a private American military company and security consulting firm. Due to legal actions taken by the US government, its troops enjoy legal immunity from prosecution for crimes committed in war.
It played an essential role in the invasion of Iraq by the US forces. The troops of Blackwater have committed horrible crimes against Iraqis, this was especially true in Fallujah. The company also has a bad reputation in Afghanistan.
The presence of this terrorist company in Yemen indicates that the House of Saud seeks a way out of the Yemeni quagmire at any cost. Certainly, Blackwater’s fully armed forces will wreck havoc on Yemen, similar to the one they dine in Fallujah.
It should be noted that in recent months Saudi Arabia has faced many challenges. The country has spent billions of dollars on the war in Yemen, and it has not made any significant achievements, and the decreased oil prices have also placed a lot of pressure on Saudi Arabia, to the extent that the Independent newspaper predicted that Saudi Arabia will go bankrupt by 2020.
Disputes between the Saudi princes have been another reason for the political and economic instability in this country.
Saudi Arabia has now reached a point that it is recruiting mercenaries to continue its invasion in Yemen and this could do more than tarnish the country's reputation among Muslim countries.
As Muslims cannot forget the brutal crimes of Blackwater in Iraq and Afghanistan; the near future may bring bad news about these dreadful man-made disasters in Yemen.
