Yemen Hostage Situation

May 22, 2011

Well, I think this legally requires us to go to Yemen and bomb them, right? I mean they are holding a US Govt rep…

“Gunmen claiming to be loyal to President Ali Abdallah Saleh of Yemen laid siege Sunday afternoon to the embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Sana’a, trapping ambassadors of the United States, Britain and the European Union, and those from the six members states of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Also trapped inside the UAE embassy was the secretary general of the GCC, Abdullatif al-Zayani.

The envoys were waiting for word about whether Mr. Saleh would, as promised, sign a historic GCC-negotiated pact under which he would end 33 years of authoritarian rule by leaving office within 30 days, with full immunity assured. If positive word were received, they had planned to go to the presidential palace from the UAE Embassy.

In light of the siege, an Al Arabiya correspondent in Sana’a reported that the chances of Mr. Saleh signing the pact on Sunday were virtually zero.”

Things like this continue to happen in MENA – its easy to see why holding gold and silver is the right thing to do regardless or current price. This is only going to cost more lives, and more US taxpayer money.
