In an interview aired on the Lebanese Al Mayadeen channel last Friday, the former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh blasted Saudi Arabia for financially and ideologically supporting terror groups in the Arab world.

He added that the United States and its Israeli ally use Saudi Wahhabism to expand influence in the region and stoke instability to further their colonial ambitions. Saleh also revealed that he was offered millions of dollars through the former Saudi ambassador to Yemen in return for allying himself with the Saudi aggressors.

However, Mr. Saleh admit the presence of administrative differences between his party and the Houthis, though it was nothing to undermine the national unity of all Yemeni resistance forces against the Saudi invasion.

Saudi Arabia launched its military campaign against Yemen on March 26 of the previous year in a bid to restore power to the fugitive Yemeni president Hadi. With initial success quickly wavering, Saudi Arabia and its coalition allies found themselves stuck in a costly stalemate that is impacting their already fragile oil-based economies.

Saudi and Pakistan are duplicitous- Saudi funds ISIS to counter Iran’s Shiites ; Pakistan funds Taliban to counter India.

tbh Taliban is totally self-sufficient, they grow poppies, mine lapis lazuli and other semi-precious gemstones, collect taxes, supply water/fuel/electricity etc, clean the streets, uphold judicial system 1000X faster than afghan government judges do. imo they’re better than american occupants placed current ghani government, not because they’re kind or something, but theyre just plainly lesser evil in comparison to those corrupt warlords and politicians at the top in kabul atm.
