Almotamar.net - Millions of Yemenis assembled on Friday in the public squares at the capital Sana'a and all governorates.
After performing Friday prayers, people staged demonstrations and rallies, renewing their pledge of patriotism and their commitment to maintain the security and stability of Yemen.
The crowds chanted slogans, expressing their love to the country and absolute loyalty to Allah and then to country, revolution and unity.
They reaffirmed their firm stands with the constitutional legitimacy and political leadership represented by President Ali Abdullah Saleh and refusing all forms of plots hatched by terrorists and saboteurs.
They also affirmed that the majority of the Yemeni people were standing with the constitutional legitimacy, accenting their readiness to stand beside the armed forces and security forces against any attempts to coup on the constitutional legitimacy.
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.
