    Mina's tragedy was unfortunate event...Unfortunately there are ongoing "media war" too between shia extremist and wahabbis. They mix shit out of context.


    To be honest that pile of bodies on photo is gross enough without buldozer being in play even. And yeah, i considered this to be somewhat of a legit source, i didnt even care to check, interesting develop tho.

    Look at the launcher on the left, and missile canister laying on the ground, one closer to person taking picture its Troophan.

    Yemeni Conflict: News - Page 23 219cbns

    Here you can see it being used by Iranians.

    Missile without canister that you are refering to is truly Tosan, Konkurs derivate, but it has been taken out of the canister. I wasnt really even paying attention to it since there is quite alot of Konkurs launchers in Yemen, its not exotic to say. Troophan on other hand is very exotic.

    Yemeni Conflict: News - Page 23 VcB7CSY

    Take note that Iranians have multiple versions of both, so they are quite hard to track, also they made improved versons of their original Troophan which actually remind alot of further US TOW derivates.

    Just a thought. What are the chances of Russia demanding that as the houthis are fighting against the ISIL rats, then they should pe part of the anti-ISIL coalition that Russia is proposing, hence KSA and the other GCC rats must stop their attacks immediately and engage in dialogue. Maybe hint at supporting the houthis (against ISIL mind you) with hardware or something similar. It will be a body blow to the KSA rats, they will absolutely s**t themselves. Am i daydreaming?

    Few days ago i was reading one blog post of a sort about Malaysian and Saudi military cooperation, talks and possible UN mandate for Malaysia to join peacekeeping mission in Yemen. Then emerged information that they might join this coalition led by UAE and Saudi Arabia and participate in actual combat i kinda rejected to belive in such thing and went my way. However...

    "I know I have been writing about this several times in the past but it’s look like the crunch is on us. I have written previously that Malaysia will only take part in operations in Yemen as part of a UN peace keeping force. However it’s looking likely we will have to make a decision about that sooner rather than later and without any UN mandate. As you are aware, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein met his Saudi Arabia counterpart Mohamad Salman in Jeddah last night.

    A release on the meeting by Hishammuddin office stated that both countries agreed to forge better ties on intelligence on IS. Both ministers also discussed the current situation in the Middle East. Hishammuddin said he told the Saudi Defence Minister, who is also the Deputy Crown Prince he appreciated the accommodation, facilities and needs given to Malaysian Armed Force personnel stationed in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi for a humanitarian mission. Although the release seemed to suggest that the meeting was an ordinary one, circumstances at the moment meant that we can wonder what actually transpired. It is unlikely though Hishammuddin will be able to announce something substantive without reporting to the Cabinet first.

    One thing for certain, the timing of the latest meeting – on the verge of the Haj – one of the most important event in the Muslim calendar – suggested it’s more than that. Coupled with the fact that the Saudi led coalition is facing daily casualties in their operations in Yemen again suggested that this meeting could be a defining moment for the Malaysian Armed Forces and the Najib administration. Interestingly, Indonesian president Joko Widodo was in the Middle East region recently. We wonder whether he too faced the vexed question facing Malaysia. Pakistan had already said no, so that is that. To be or not to be, that is the question. We have to wait and see."


    Source: http://www.malaysiandefence.com/yemen-are-we-on-the-verge/

    Then i see this:

    "Vanguards of the Malaysian forces have arrived Sunday at Saudi air bases to join Riyadh's military coalition battling Houthi militias in Yemen, the Saudi Press Agency reported. With the move, the Asian country became the 12th state in the Saudi-led coalition after Senegal announced it would send 2,100 soldiers to Saudi Arabia to join the alliance. The Saudi Ministry of Defense said the coalition operations center is preparing to merge the Malaysian and Senegalese forces. The Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes against Iran-backed Shiite Houthi miitias and their allies on March 26 after they seized control of large parts of the country and advanced on the main southern city of Aden, where President Abedrabbu Mansour Hadi had taken refuge, before fleeing to Riyadh."

    Source: http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2015/05/10/Malaysian-vanguards-joining-Arab-led-collation-arrive-in-Saudi-.html

    And most importantly i see this:

    Exacly my thoughts, thats why i dismissed it as a BS when i first time read it. I was like "Yea, right". But see this "coalition" aganist Yemeni rebels now has in its ranks soldiers and equipment from Morocco, Senegal and Egypt. I can, somehow on a long stick understand why Egypt is participating, but WTF is with Senegal and Morocco...Malaysia?

    Seems Saudi money is doing miracles, i think they are trying to gather as many countries as possible in this coalition so they do not get laughed at alone while they are getting rekt by peasants.

    Senegal as well? Wtf. OK, well, it is their wish. Both Senegal and Malaysia wont do jack other than probably end up getting themselves killed in Yemen. Wonder if people back home will start asking questions? Then again, not like the government of these countries care what their citizens say.

    Yeah, Senegal is well known for being in good relations with many major powers exacly coz of stuff like this, providing support on various occasions, in exchange they naturally expect support on their account in future. They even participated in Gulf War, there is quite famous incident when Saudi C130 crashed with 92 Senegal soldiers on their way back to home after the war. Senegal actually has above standard trained infantry, they are well known for their discipline so many African armies are sending their troops to be trained there.

    "The international coalition is aiming to protect and secure the holy sites of Islam, Medina and Mecca," Senegalese Foreign Minister Mankeur Ndiaye told parliament. "The president...has decided to respond favourably to this request by deploying a contingent of 2,100 men in the holy land of Saudi Arabia," he said."

    Too bad their as poor as shit and don't bother to fix their own country and economy, while sucking up to the so called "powers". What good is it for them? Probably just for brownie points just so that they don't get bombed by the US.

    It looks like the Senegalese will be deployed in Saudi Arabia proper, to serve as auxiliaries to help defend Saudi bases from Yemeni incursions.
    They probably won't take part in Yemen itself.

    Dunno why the hell the Malaysians joined. If I was a national leader - no amount of money would convince me to risk my military's lives in some completely foreign and unnecessary conflict. If there were vital national interests involved and absolutely no other choice - then maybe; but certainly not for Saudi oil money.
    But their military is not half-bad it should be said; I don't think they will have as much misfortune as the Saudis had - were they to be deployed in Yemen.

    The irony is that Sub-Saharan Africans are openly discriminated in Saudomy Apeia, just recently the stampedes during Hadj were blamed almost entirely on Sub-Saharan Africans by Saudi Wahabbia officials, even though the problems of overcrowding and stampeding were around for decades.

    We'll be waiting for Saudomy Apeia to become Blowbackistan when the oil money dry's up, and when the oil-rich, Shia dominated eastern regions start to rebel:


    Others speculate that if the situation continues as it is, the Kingdom might very well face a regime change or even civil unrest, similar to Yemen and Egypt, investigative journalist Nafeez Ahmed said in the Middle East Eye.
