Almotamar.net - The Assistant Secretary General of the General People’s Congress (GPC) in Yemen Dr Ahmed Ubeid Bin Daghr has said the Yemeni unity is he greatest revolution in Yemen’s contemporary history and must be preserved and handed over to the next generations however the forces of evil and aggression have attempted to undermine its republican regime in the north, its unity in the south and its national values in general.
In an editorial for the Al-Mithaq newspaper in its Monday issue, Dr Bin Daghr affirms the revolutionaries of October had never hesitated, after the triumph of the revolution over the colonialists and getting independence, from giving the state its Yemeni characteristic and identity and the 30 November was the first brick in the building of the Yemeni state. Without that great triumph of the Yemeni national movement, there would not have been possible to live in a unified Yemeni state.
Dr Bin Daghr has made it clear that loyalty to the martyr and heroes who made September, October, November and May events depends on “our ability to encounter the difficulties and challenges singled out by the movement of reality and time has thrown in front of us.
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
