IT IS not easy to cure a disease which has spread in the body due to the need to protect other bodies. Based on this, the ‘Decisive Storm’ military operation carried out by the Arab military coalition led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2015 supported the legitimate rule in Yemen.
The participating countries picked a huge tab resulting in victory. In Sweden’s capital city – Stockholm, an agreement was signed between the legitimate Yemeni government and Iran’s puppet – the Houthis, for the latter to withdraw from Hodeida and declare ceasefire.
This conflict, which continued for about four years, was not a war between the legitimate rule, national resistance army and the Arab coalition on one side; and the Houthis on the other side. If that was the case, then it would have been a denial of the truth.
This war was between Iran, the legitimate rule and coalition. Therefore, the victory they achieved signaled the start of the collapse of the Persian expansionism scheme in the Arab world and the entire world, starting from Yemen to Lebanon, Iraq and Syria.
Everyone knows that the Houthis do not constitute majority power in Yemen. They depended on Iran’s regime and the full support given to them. Thus, no defeat was recorded against them in the six wars they fought with the Yemeni military forces in the previous regime, because internal settlements prevented the elimination of this group.
However, after revolting against the legitimate rule and dropping the Gulf peace initiative, it was necessary for the GCC countries to prevent the disease from entering the Arabian Peninsula through its southern front.
A decisive stance was taken to eliminate the threat despite the treachery that came along with the war; as well as the moral, media and military support from Tehran and unfortunately, some Gulf nations, Lebanon and Turkey – the current headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood Group. Nonetheless, all efforts against the decisiveness of the Arab coalition did not change the reality that Yemen can never be non-Arab.
Incidentally, we cannot forget some major powers which blackmailed the GCC nations; especially when the previous United States of America administration used international organizations to accuse the coalition of committing crimes against humanity.
Actually, reports on condemning the coalition were issued from Sanaa in a skewed manner in a bid to put the blame on the coalition, succumbing to pressure from Iran and the Houthis with the help of Obama’s administration which strived to rehabilitate the Mullah regime and reinstate it in the international community.
Based on these facts, the confrontation with this enemy was not easy. The enemy was sponsored indirectly by the US administration and Israel in their bid to form a kind of Arab world which serves the interest of Tel Aviv. This motivated Obama’s White House to destabilize relations with historic regional allies, such as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates which played a vital and pivotal role in crushing aggression on countries in the Arabian Peninsula.
In short, the agreement signed in Sweden’s capital is a call for the Houthis to wake up from the nightmare of being Iranian operatives, even if it took time for them to realize it and be certain their fate will not be different from that of Sayf ibn Dhi-Yazan (Himyarite King of Yemen who lived between 516 and 578 AD). This king sought the assistance of the Persians that ended up occupying Yemen after killing him and achieving their objectives.
If Iran emerged victorious in Yemen, the fate of this country will be similar to that of Iraq where its militias are corrupting the country and wreaking havoc on its people, or it will be like Lebanon where there has been a vacuum in authority institutions since Hassan Nasrallah and his group (Hezbollah) hijacked the country, such that the country is now in a pathetic condition and witnessing economic collapse.
This is due to the fact that the one dominating the decision making process is striving to transform Lebanon into the backyard of the Mullah regime and a Persian base along the Mediterranean Sea.
Historically, Persians deal with those who help in their scheme the same way Napoleon dealt with the Austrian officer when he facilitated the occupation of his country. He refused to shake his hand and he threw a bag of money to him saying, “I am not honored to shake hands with someone who betrayed his country.”
Without a doubt, Arab history is full of this kind of people – those who facilitated the path for Hulagu (Mongol ruler) to capture Baghdad in the 13th Century and eliminate the Abbassid Dynasty, those who helped Israelis occupy Palestine or Iran’s infiltration in some Arab countries.
This is why when we talk today about the victory that Yemen has achieved, we are actually talking about two main topics: First, once the ceasefire takes effect, those who stood with the aggressors will realize that their stance against their country led to destruction and continuing their support means helping the Mullah regime which is striving to reshape the region in accordance with the Persian culture and under the pretext of ‘Shiasm.’
Second is that the entire region and the entire world are done with dark politics. Now, the world is going into a stage where it does not favor terrorism at the expense of nations, particularly the Iranians who lived in deprivation throughout the past four decades.
This dire living condition continues while the religious clique spent billions of dollars on terrorism schemes outside the country at a time when Iranians were starving and the whole world viewed Iranians as top-class terrorists.
