Yemen Police Open Fire On Protesters Leaving 50 Hurt, Three Seriously

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Reuters is now quoting witnesses as saying that 50 protesters have been hurt in Yemen, three of them seriously. Earlier on Tuesday, thousands of inmates rioted at the central
prison in Sanaa, taking a dozen guards hostage and calling for President
Saleh to resign, according to the Associated Press. At least one
prisoner was killed and 80 people were wounded, police said. And elsewhere, gunfire erupted in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, where Gbagbo forces killed 4.
These are just the latest pieces of news from Reuters in a day in which nothing at all from the tape mattered, as a rumor circulates that the wildcat well drilled in the 1 billion barrel strategic petroleum reserve in Bernanke's back yard has now started producing.

Just wait till the engineers figure out a way for Bennie to print light sweet crude! Then we'll see what kind of liquidity he can provide.

With all this stability in the world, it is no wonder gold is down and stocks are up today.

I think our military has this problem worked out in a manner appropriate with our culture and morality.

A good old coin tosh should be able to provide you with a answer.

 

And if the result doesn't suit you, you can always go 2 out of 3, 3 out of 5, 5 out of 9, 9 out of 17....

Doesn't really matter, whoever happens to be under the bomb is Al Qaeda.

Very few really noticed that Yemen was bombed before not so long ago: http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/cruise-missiles-strike-yemen/story?id=9375236

As seen through the eyes of Wall Street: the upside to the riots is the chance that all these people will just become placid American-style consumers, paying for Netfix on their iPads with their SNAP cards subsidized by the US. That's a win-win-win-win-win

The protestors must now return force with force. When you are dealing with despots,oligarchs who have no qualm to shoot you,it is time to take up arms to depose of  the leaders.

Game over for the Yemen Govt.

Nearly everytime in modern history citizens are fired upon in this manner it's  guranteed game over.

As a former ZH article wrote, we may see 350% increase in oil again.
