The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia bombs Yemen to save  democracy !

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is determined against all odds to protect "democracy" and the "legitimate" government of Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Al-Hadi who escaped from Sana'a following popular unrest and takeover of power by the Ansarullah Movement and their allies, both Shias and Sunnis. Apart from the Saudi Kingdom's concern, the other democracy loving regimes concerned about democracy in Yemen are the Kingdoms of Jordan, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Morocco and the military regime of Egypt.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is determined against all odds to protect "democracy" and the "legitimate" government of Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Al-Hadi who escaped from Sana'a following popular unrest and takeover of power by the Ansarullah Movement and their allies, both Shias and Sunnis. Apart from the Saudi Kingdom's concern, the other democracy loving regimes concerned about democracy in Yemen are the Kingdoms of Jordan, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Morocco and the military regime of Egypt.

As the Saudi Kingdom's Ambassador to Washongton, Adel Al- Jubeir said: The kingdom "will do anything necessary" to protect the people of Yemen and "the legitimate government of Yemen." (Al-Arabiya News, 26 March 2015).

These stalwarts of democracy and Human Rights in the Middle East are not alone in their struggle, there is US, France, Israel, Turkey, Pakistan and Sudan who have expressed their support.

The United States; the biggest exporter of democracy in the Post-Cold War era will provide "intelligence and logistical support" in this invasion. France which is credited to having given "democracy" and "wealth " to most of the African nations has also expressed support to Riyadh, Turkey and Israel, who are currently busy bringing democracy in Syria and Iraq are also with the Saudis and their allies. Even Pakistan, famous for its Human Rights record and treatment of minorities has sent its army to be at the service of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

What is really happening in Yemen?

The wave of popular uprisings in the Arab world in 2011 had severely affected Yemen. Yemeni society witnessed many crucial events following these uprisings. Different sects, tribes and groups throughout the nation united against the ruling elite and their foreign masters.

The uprising had reached such a level that Ali Abdullah Saleh, the then President of Yemen presented a power sharing agreement but still controlled the government through his proxies. However, to avoid a complete loss of control over Yemen's affairs, the ruling elite and their foreign puppeteers came up with a UN backed solution where Saleh completely ceded power to his Vice President Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Al-Hadi. Thus in 2012, Hadi became the President of Yemen through an election where he was the only contender. Many considered this UN backed solution as a sell out and a mere hogwash and the resentment only grew among the population. The doubling of fuel prices in July 2014 and the following protests became a turning point in the chain of events since 2011.

Many tribes and sects united once again under the leadership of the Ansarullah Movement. The members of the Ansarullah group along with popular support lead large scale protests and occupied major government buildings and power centers thereby bringing Hadi's government to a standstill. Witnessing these events, Hadi sacked all his cabinet members and rolled back fuel prices and offered a power sharing deal with members of the Ansarullah movement. However, the members of Ansarullah movement and their supporters rejected Hadi's offer accusing him of being morally corrupt and not keeping up to his earlier commitments to the people of Yemen. Thus, the Ansarullah and their allies armed with popular support put Hadi under house arrest. In January 2015, when the Ansarullah forces limited Hadi's power to his presidential palace, Hadi's cabinet announced his resignation following which he escaped to the port city of Aden, and declared his resignation revoked. Hadi then announced Aden as the new capital of Yemen and declared a government in exile. Immediately, the US, France, Turkey, and their Western European allies and Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates closed their embassies in Sana'a and relocated to Aden. When the Ansarullah members had complete control over Sana'a, they then moved in to gain control over Aden along with their allied tribes and sections of Yemeni military forces. Thus Hadi was forced to run away from Yemen and take shelter in Riyadh.
