SHAFAQNA – Ahmad Al-Asiri – Saudi General who is an ally of Senator McCain, Samantha Power, Al Qaeda and Neoliberals. You are unlikely to read any thing critical about him from sectarian bigots like Dexter Filkins. Like many of the “generals” from the “Golden Age” of Caliphate – you know like the ones that Leftists like Tariq Ali get wet dreams for – General Asiri leads one of the most overpaid and expensive armies in human history that has distinguished itself by bombing the women and children of Yemen while still getting it handed by a few Yemeni fighters without aid or weapons.
Asiri was also reportedly pelted with eggs thrown by protesters before he entered the venue for the European Council on Foreign Relations meeting.
“Asiri represents a regime that has killed thousands in Yemen and shown a total contempt for international law. Asiri shouldn’t be welcomed and treated like a dignitary, he should be arrested and investigated for war crimes,” Walton said.
He also described the Saudi general as the “chief apologist for the war crimes in Yemen.”
The Saudi aggression, which allegedly seeks to restore Yemen’s ex-government to power, has killed over 12,000 Yemenis since March 2015, according to the latest tallies.
