Washington DC – CNN published an article by the director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs Ali AlAhmed regarding the Saudi-led war against Yemen.
What Saudi Arabia wants in Yemen
(CNN)Supported by American intelligence and supplied with advanced U.S.-made weaponry, Saudi jets began airstrikes in Yemen late last month in the name of what the kingdom’s Washington ambassador described as “restoring the legitimate government” and protecting a “Yemeni constitution and elections.”
The need to protect constitutions and elections is a rather strange message from the representative of an absolute monarchy. Indeed, Saudi motives in Yemen likely have nothing to do with protecting the country’s “legitimate government,” its constitution or its electoral process.
