[ Editor’s Note: As I lead off in this interview, we still have not be able to see how Yemen has been able logistically to hold off the wolves for so long. Despite the endless claims of Iranian support, no one has shown us the secret Iranian invisible planes and ships that are bringing in the supplies, despite the Saudis and Arab coalition having control, or the air and the naval blockades that are starving the country.
These accurate SCUD missile attacks were also a big surprise, both in their accuracy and the magic box that the Houthis seem to keep pulling them out of with an endless supply.
Yemen is the poorest country in the Mid East, and it is a disgrace for the allegedly democratic West to be supporting the big Arab powers, (in money if not in size), like Saudi Arabia, which has shifted to using mercenary troops, as Saudis never join the military to really fight anybody, but just the opposite… to collect a paycheck.
Even officers hire stand-ins to take training classes for them, and pilots hire Pakistanis as surrogates for them, a problem that Western media has chosen not to cover, but is widely known among all the defense contractors that have worked there, and who teach the training classes that have tape recorders sitting in place of many students. Saudi Arabia is the most over-armed and undermanned (meaning people who would really fight) of any military force on the planet.
I don’t remember one ceasefire where the Saudis where not bombing the next day, and with only murmuring from the UN if they hit anything at all. Unfortunately, the public is numbed out on all of this, which puts us all in a more dangerous position; because when our turn comes to be down-range on the firing line, no one else would care — and why should they? It’s one sad hell of a situation… JD ]

The leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement says the Yemeni nation will never succumb to occupation, stressing that they will continue resisting against the Saudi invasion on the country.
Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said the US, UK, and the UAE are supporting Saudi Arabia in the aggression against Yemen. He said the enemies of the Yemeni nation want to dominate its wealth and territory. The Ansarullah leader also noted that Saudi Arabia and the UAE aim to strip the Yemenis of their identity. He then stressed that the Saudi invasion is a war against Yemeni women and children.
Houthi said the Saudis kill the Yemeni people to appease Israel. He called on all Muslim clerics to defend Yemen against Takfiri ideas. The Ansarullah leader also rejected claims of Iran’s involvement in the fight against the Saudi war and said Riyadh and its allies are responsible for spilling the blood of innocent Yemenis.
