Saudi Arabia’s policy to incite uproar in the region has benefitted Islam’s opponents. Everywhere they have ever set foot on and intervened has dealt a blow to their very being because they don’t acknowledge countries’ national identities.
Saudi Arabia’s intervention in Yemen fell short of the early promise and determination that was bound to bring home the victory. The plans they had drawn up went up in smoke as they faced a headstrong resistance by Yemeni military forces.
Washington Post published an article discussing that the aims foreshadowing the attack to Yemen have not yet realized, one of them being undermining Ansarullah’s power and making them retreat from the lands they have freed including Sana’a. All this is happening while the prospects of returning Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, Yemen’s president, is not fully mapped out, and Houthis still impose their domination on the properties and lands.
Not only hasn’t Saudi Arabia pursued their ideology of Arab nationalism and idealism and their support for Muslims and the region, but also their policies are set on advantaging themselves and sending more shockwaves of turmoil in the region. Not only has Riyadh forgotten the Palestine dream, but also spends its resources to embolden foreign powers who work against Arab countries. Saudi Arabia has struggled for a long time to redirect the Palestinian resistance forces and adjust them to their will, but they have failed.
Undoubtedly, Saudi Arabia’s defeat in the region can be put down into the U.S.’s account because Saudi Arabia’s policies are intricately intertwined with the policies the U.S. follows in the region; however, Saudi Arabia’s interests are far more than the U.S.’s in Yemen.
Hassan Nasrallah، the Secretary General of the Lebanese political and paramilitary party، delivered a speech on Saudi Arabia’s policy in late March expressing that they treated Tunisia and Egypt the same. In Yemen, Libya, Iraq, and other regions they made use of the aforementioned strategies. Where does this outlook lead to? Wrong stances go hand in hand with misguided policies leading up to consecutive defeats.
Saudi Arabia’s policy to spend money and resources on waging wars has brought about the other countries’ military erosion, preparing the grounds for the Islam’s enemies. However, all this is a testament to Saudi Arabia’s failure proving wherever they have intervened has brought them defeat. The reason was battered around in Hassan Nasrallah’s speech, being they do not acknowledge nations and countries. The kings of Saudi Arabia are so obsessed with money, but can they buy nations with money? When the determination of people knows no bounds, and the nationalist parties back up their people, the meddling powers will collapse. But we have to see whether these consecutive defeats will be a lesson and incentive for Saudi Arabia to disavow their wrongful policies. These policies yield nothing but ruin and the catastrophic effects will one day blow up in their faces too.
Surge of Yemenis, rascality of Saudi Arabia
Thousands of Yemenis said no to the aggression of Al-Saud.
On Saturday, Reuter news agency reported while hundreds of thousands of Yemenis staged a rally to support the Houthis, three air strikes were carried out.
As the rally was underway, three air strikes targeted the Yemen’s presidential compound located 600 meters away from the square without causing casualties, residents told Reuters.
The details have not been released about possible death toll in the attack.
