THE decision of the legitimate Yemeni government to relocate the Central Bank from Sanaa to Aden – the temporary capital city of Yemen, reveals the extent of the rebels’ lack of conviction that they are the authority in Yemen for the past two years. All they did in this regard was lie to themselves, not to the world which did not change its support for the legitimate government.
Just after the overdue decision was announced, Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi started to scream and whine, along with threats and intimidations. As it has been in the past two years, all of those acts reflect the level of pain caused by the legitimacy resistance together with the Arab coalition against Iran’s invasion of the southern flank of the Arabian Gulf.
The relocation of the Central Bank has deprived the rebel team of its source of loot which continued for about two years to fund the war imposed by Al-Houthi team and the lust of the ousted leader to rule the Yemenis. This has caused them loads of miseries, starting from the famine which millions of Yemenis are suffering from in a country that, from the start, has been in dire need of international aid in order to grow the weary economy.
Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi threatens to never allow Yemen to move around the Saudi, Qatari and American orbit, as he claims. He raised his voice after Iran’s tap of support started to shut gradually due to the Iranian populace’s appeal to stop the wastage of millions on a terrorist group that brought nothing to their country but isolation and sanctions.
Paradoxically, this agent continues to strive towards executing the Mullah’s expansionism scheme with the money of Yemenis, demanding that they donate to the Central Bank after he agreed on the relocation decision submissively, like the way his Lebanese counterpart Hassan Nasrallah is currently doing to compensate for the Iranian regime’s decision to stop supporting him with more narcotics trade.
The funds spent by Al-Houthi on the war in Yemen or his rocket attacks on Saudi Arabia’s border with about 63,000 shells since 2009 would have been used as a huge contribution to development that would have prevented millions of Yemenis from suffering the evil of hunger, unemployment and impoverishment.
Due to the blindness of this agent, he fell into the savage claws of blunders which he will never get out of. In fact, he writes a new line about his end each day he fights against the legitimate forces of Yemen supported by the Arab coalition. He is like someone trying to blow a hill in order to move it.
Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi, along with his backer – the ousted Saleh and Iran’s regime, realized that the rocks on the hills in Yemen resisted the furious wind. The question is: What will happen if the final breath of the expansionism scheme based on illusions start to be heard in the sense that it will never materialize regardless of the circumstances?
Today, the challenge that Al-Houthi, who has been boasting about the revolution, is facing continues to grow. Deep inside him, he realizes that he is just a small agent. Perhaps his master, Iran, is done with him. It is not premature to assume that a sack of silver will be thrown at him and then the master will turn its back on him. This is after the legitimate authority returns to Yemen with the support of the international community.
