Yemen's US-Backed Government & President Resign

In the short space of an hour - following weeks of battles and a recent standoff in Sana'a with Houthi rebels - all the well-laid plans of the US manipulators has gone astray:

  • *YEMEN GOVERNMENT RESIGNS, PRIME MINISTER PRESENTS RESIGNATION TO PRESIDENT AMID REBEL STANDOFF
  • *YEMEN PRESIDENT HADI HAS RESIGNED, AIDE SAYS

This comes after signing a short-term peace deal following an admission that they had lost control. And with oil-prices plunging once again, which means social instability in the middle east is about to explode making the Arab spring of 2011 seem like child's play by comparison, things around the globe are about to take a dramatic turn for the worse.

 

As Xinhua reports,

Yemeni Prime Minister Khaled Bahah presented resignation to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi on Thursday night, government spokesman Rajeh Badi told Xinhua, one day after the government and Shiite Houthi group signed a peace deal to end a three-day political crisis.

 

"The prime minister and his government will not withdraw their decision under any circumstance," Badi said, expressing the apology on behalf of Bahah to the Yemeni people.

 

Bahah, born in 1965 in Yemen's southeastern province of Hadramout, was named as the premier on Oct. 13, 2014. He served as oil minister from March to June in 2014. He was replaced due to protests triggered by shortage of fuel and electricity, and was later named as envoy to the UN.

 

The government signed on Wednesday a peace deal with the Houthi group which seized the presidential palace during clashes with presidential guards since Monday.
