Origins of the crisis in Yemen

Origins of the crisis in Yemen

In a previous CaspianReport, released back in 2011, we argued about the likelihood of a civil war in Yemen and that the Iranian back Houthi rebellion would trigger a new front in the ongoing Saudi-Iranian cold war. The other fronts being Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. Now that Yemen is once again on the brink of civil war, and facing a Zaidi-Shia led uprising in the North and an al-Qaeda led uprising in the South, all the while being bombed by neighboring Arab states, let’s take a step back and look at the origins of the current crisis.

  1. I have no sympathy for any of the MEN in this story. How can they think about religion and territory and balance or imbalance of power when women and children are starving to death in the millions? It has been going on for years. Shame on the Shia and shame on the Sunni for killing the innocents for power. You men are all headed straight for hell, where you will suffer an eternity in the misery you have made of innocent lives.

    You will never see paradise, but the women and children you murder will see God and have relief and peace and joy.
