The most common gimmick of Assadists to deflect from Syrian & Russian bombing of civilians is to express crocodile tears indignation about US & UK-backed Saudi bombing of Yemen. But what that coalition is doing in Yemen is monstrously criminal in exactly the same way as what Syria, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah, & the 60-member US-coalition are doing in Syria. Nice try Assad propagandists, but the bombing of Yemen is for the same political purposes as that in Syria & as the massive repression in Egypt & Bahrain: to destroy every vestige of the titanic Arab Spring uprisings that began in 2011. Their crocodile tears over Yemen are not a case of selective outrage but are entirely fake & duplicitous. It won’t be long before they’re shouting “Islamist jihadis” at the Yemenis as they are at the Syrian revolution.
