Quick Thoughts: April Longley Alley on the Yemen Conflict

[In late March 2015, a coalition of states led by Saudi Arabia initiated a military campaign against Yemen consisting of intensive air raids, the arming of local allies and a de facto naval and air blockade of the country. Initially termed Operation Decisive Storm but since renamed Operation Restore Hope, it continues to this day. Riyadh identified the recent territorial gains of Yemen’s Houthi movement, and the ouster of President Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi and his government, as the reasons for its campaign and pledged that both would be swiftly rolled back. Four months later neither objective appears to be in reach, nor is a negotiated end to this conflict in sight.  ...

المملكة العربية السعودية وحرب الشرعية في اليمن

[

 في 21 نيسان\إبريل، 2015 أعلن التحالف العسكري للدول العربية الذي تقوده السعودية أن "عملية عاصفة الحزم"، الحملة العسكرية ضد اليمن التي شُنّتْ في 25 آذار\مارس، دخلت في طور جديد أكثر سلمية، تحت مسمى "إعادة الأمل". بعد ذلك بوقت قصير، ألقى الرئيس اليمني عبد ربه منصور هادي خطابه الأول للأمة من منفاه في المملكة العربية السعودية، مكرراً الكثير من التهم والإنذارات نفسها ضد الحوثيين. وقد استُؤنف القصف بعد ساعات فقط من إعلان التحالف، وبعد أكثر من أسبوع، لم يُظهر أي إشارات تباطؤ. ويبدو أن القليل قد تغيّر باستثناء إطلاق تسمية جديدة على الحرب لكن ما أكده هذا الطور الجديد هو أن أياً من المحاولات السعودية "لإحلال السلام" في اليمن (سواء خلف قناع ...

واقع الكتاب في اليمن

[

في حوار أجراه معه عبد الغني القرني ونُشر في موقع"الجزيرة نت" قال رئيس اتحاد الناشرين اليمنيين محمد عبد الله الآنسي إن الكتاب اليمني والورقي منه بالذات ما يزال حيا يرزق، ولا زال جليساً يُؤنس، وليس أدل على ذلك من إقبال الناس على اقتنائه في معارض الكتاب التي تقام في فترات ومدن مختلفة، وهو حاضر في المشهد الثقافي بقوة تأليفاً، ونشراً، وتوزيعاً، لكن غياب القانون الذي ينظم صناعة الكتاب في أطواره المختلفة يخلق إشكالات عدة، فقانون حماية الحقوق الفكرية الموجود الآن ليس كافياً، ناهيكَ عن أن هذا القانون لا يجد من يطبقه على أرض الواقع، نافيا أن تكون الوسائط التكنولوجية قد ألغت دور الكتاب الورقي. معرض القاهرة بدأ في جو من الحيطة والحدز قال كمال القاضي في مقال نشر في جريدة ...

تقرير خاص: اليمن: الصحفيون والمدافعون عن حقوق الإنسان معرضون للخطر أثناء الحرب

[

أصدر مجلس الأمن التابع للأمم المتحدة، في نيسان، قراراً يدعو لاستئناف سريع لمحادثات السلام ووضع حد للعنف في اليمن. ومع ذلك تواصل القتال في جميع أنحاء البلاد مع استمرار الغارات الجوية السعودية التي تستهدف قوات الحوثيين خلال الشهر الماضي والتي يدفع ثمنها المدنيون، وكذلك فإن القوات الحوثية تستهدف الأشخاص أو المجموعات التي تعمل ضدها بما في ذلك التحالف الذي تقوده السعودية. وفي الوقت الذي وعدت فيه المملكة العربية السعودية هذا الأسبوع  بإنهاء حملة القصف التي خلفت 1000 قتيل على الأقل وآلاف الجرحى والمشردين، فان الأمرلم ينته بتسوية سلمية بعد. ذلك أن المستشار الخاص للأمين العام للأمم المتحدة حول اليمن، جمال بن عمر، قد استقال من منصبه وصار وصول المساعدات ...

How To Not Know about the CIA’s Targeted Killing Program

The CIA operates armed drones to engage in targeted killing operations in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia. That is known. But, to borrow from former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s iconic statement, is it a “known known” or a “known unknown”? Known knowns are things we know we know, whereas known unknowns are things we know we do not know. The third ingredient of Rumsfeld’s rhetorical mélange is the “unknown unknowns”—things we do not know we do not know. The CIA wishes its drone program was an ...
