Bloody 2009

 Hakim Almasmari

As 2009 comes to an end, sad memories will stay as they will be hard to forget.
I called 2009 a bloody year for the reasons that I will mention below. No one would have ever thought that Yemen would reach the state it is today. Living in Yemen for more than 10 years, I believed that such clean hearted people should have better opportunities and better options in life. Over 12,000 people died in 2009 because of wars, demonstrations, attacks, and for other security reasons.
The worst 10 memories of 2009 are the following:
1-The long ongoing war in Sa’ada that has killed over 8000 Yemenis in 2009 alone.
2- The attack on Al-Qaeda in Abyan and Shabwa that killed 110 civilians and less than 7 Al-Qaeda members.
3- The continuing protests in southern governorates of Lahj, Thale, and Abyan.
4- The attack on Tareq Al-Fadhli and his followers in Abyan that killed over 38 people in August.
5- The kidnapping of a Japanese engineer by Arhab tribesmen, which lasted for 12 days. The sad part is that he was released after the government (as usual) accepted tribesmen’s demands.
6- The death of the German, Korean, and British adults who were kidnapped by Al-Qaeda in Sa’ada in June. Lately, sources say the kids are still alive. Death threats were given to Yemen Post after it announced the death of the adults.
7- Ruling party and opposition parties not willing to negotiate and save the country from bigger crises.
8- The delay in the parliamentary elections in April that in result gave the government two more years to extend its failing policies.
9- The weak role of the anti-corruption committee SNACC, which we thought 2009 would be a breakout year for it.
10-The imprisonment of numerous journalists and the closure of over 12 newspapers. Politicians were also attacks as anyone opposing the government was dealt with an iron fist.
