Navideshahed: The Yemenis happiness as a result of Ali Abdullah Saleh's ouster did not last more than three months and with his return from Arabia hopes for a peaceful change in Yemen turned into disappointment. Within this short period of Ali Abdullah Saleh's return to the country over two hundred have been killed by the lackeys loyal to Yemen's dictator.

Ali Abdullah Saleh was seriously injured as an explosion in the Presidential building three months ago and he was sent immediately to Saudi Arabia for treatment. On the first days of Saleh's departure to Arabia contradictory information was released on the death of the Yemeni dictator.

The Yemeni people celebrated Saleh's exit from Yemen. But the Saudi all-out support for the forces loyal to Saleh discontinued the Yemenis' happiness at the end of the 32 year despotic rule of Saleh. The Yemeni dictator went to Arabia but his children and relatives controlled the political, economic and military organs and they withstood and fought against the popular revolution. Lack of solidarity and a single leadership among the Yemeni revolutionaries and the interference of foreign powers in the country have so far prolonged the revolution's fruitfulness.

The Saudi regime plays a key role in hindering on the way of the collapse of Ali Abdullah Saleh government. Al-e-Saud monarchy considers Yemen part of its backyard. Over the past few decades, the dictator of Yemen has enjoyed the Saudi support which has had a determining role in the political equations of this country with its tribal structure.

In view of the fact that Saudi Arabia is one of the strategic allies of the US and European governments, many observers believe that the anti-popular policies of the Saudis in Yemen and Bahrain are carried out on behalf of the US and European governments which claim to defend democracy and freedom.

During his 32 year rule over Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh has been a good ally for the US and maintainer of its interests in the Strait of Bab-ul-Mendab and the Red Sea. During recent years and especially after the September 11, 2001 event, Yemen has attained a special strategic position in the American copy of anti-terrorism campaign.

According to the White House officials, as per its tribal structure and its vicinity with Arabia, Yemen is the place of al-Qaeda activities. Saleh's close ties with the US paved the ground for Washington to bombard any part of Yemen which the US officials claim to be "the base of the terrorists." Saleh is misusing tribal and sectarian gaps to strengthen the foundation of his government. Taking advantage of tiny differences among the revolutionaries and suppressing the people, Saleh tries to extinguish Yemen's revolution. But he is unaware that the uprising of Yemeni people is different from those of the past. The grassroots especially the youths are taking part in the uprising. They call for freedom, real sovereignty, dignity and life along with welfare. The 32 year dictatorship of Saleh brought nothing except poverty and mischief for the Yemeni people.

The wave of Islamic awakening in Yemen will never extinguish and the Saudi efforts to preserve Saleh's regime will just lead to more blood-shedding.

One should not ignore the role of western governments, particularly the US, in continuing the killing of Yemeni people and preventing the overthrow of the dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh.

However a question is posed as 'what is difference the dictator of Yemen Ali Abdullah Saleh and the dictator of Libya Muammar Gaddafi?' Both of them have been dictators who have ruled despotically over their people for several decades.

What is the reason that after Libya's uprising and its suppression by Gaddafi regime, western governments immediately made preparations for military interference in Libya via the hasty approval of two resolutions at the UN Security Council? But they not only took no measure towards the uprising of Yemen and Bahrain but with a deadly silence towards the killing of Yemeni and Bahraini people they are actually showing green light to their rulers for continuing Saudi interfering policies. Why did the French president Sarkozy and British premier Cameron hold the summit of the friends of Libya in Paris to help the Libyan people in overthrowing Gaddafi regime but they did not hold such a conference for the Yemeni people? What difference is there between the Libyans and the Yemenis?

A glance at the performance of the US and European regimes which claim freedom-seeking in the world and their abuse of these humanitarian concepts can provide a transparent response to all these questions.

In Libya, the huge oil reserves urged the western governments to put on the guise of supporters of the popular uprising against Gaddafi regime. But there is no oil in Yemen to force the western regimes to interfere in this country. Nonetheless, in Yemen, it is the Saudis that are the main operator or perpetrator of the political scene, and the western governments should take into consideration the Saudi interests and policies.

As the Islamic awakening is flaring up in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is losing its status in the region as the elder brother of the despotic rulers of the region. The regime which has tried its best to play the role of the performer of the US domineering policies, is now witnessing the wave of the Islamic awakening knocking at its door. The establishment of popular governments in Yemen and Bahrain is a great risk to the Saudi regime. So far, this regime has tried, through tough security measures and oil dollars, to prevent the Islamic awakening from reaching its soil.

With the imminent collapse of Saleh regime in Yemen and Al-e-Khalifa regime in Bahrain it is not known whether the intensive security measures and oil dollars can stop the popular uprising and awakening against the Saudi regime. In view of the fact that the interests of the US and western governments are closely linked to Saudi policies in the Middle East, the western governments have kept silent towards the political and military interference in Yemen and Bahrain and killing of their people because losing the Saudi regime is considered a great mishap for them.
