    The war in yemen is a war between various sects of islam and i.s.i.s. too. it seems that some of the people of yemen have thought of helping i.s.i.s. gain power 'if they can have a slice of it.' this means, of course, that it is a holy war, and, that isis makes it holy by luring young minds to it. this is because the youth sees these rebels and idolizes them, thinking highly of them - this is the fault of culture of course, where the example is set where they do not laugh at jokes, instead making a fuss about them - this killing of cartoonists is evidence of 'childish' behaviour. trying to win the affections of god by attacking those mocking him... this is like hitting someone that says something about your mother, yes? why are they saying something about your mother - to get a reaction out of you. turning the other cheek is the only way civilizations survive, of course, and, when words get a violent reaction from the people, in this case i.s.i.s, well, this isn't about religion at all, but rather about a grab for power, obviously.

    So, they can stop saying it is right or wrong, what is right is serving the people you have entrusted to you. failing to do that gets these sorts of wars where the whole plot is based on a few differences and the people use the religion to their advantage.

    The people living with them are used as human shields. this would lead to them submitting to the rebels, and, the compromise of their morals in favour of life, of course. it is for this reason that yemen should use any means possible to fight these people, as, negotiations are out of the question, of course, or, are they?

    There is no question that they need urgent supplies. bombing their weapons factories would render them unable to make new weapons, and, where do they get them from? it is for this reason they need to grab the ports of the opposition, or, have an election, yes?

    Now, with this obvious play for slavery, i.s.i.s. cannot hope to ever have peace, as, nobody is with them. this means they will always be fighting, and, never have rest, as, nobody else wants them. this should be pointed out, that they need rest, yes? they cannot go on fighting forever, and, they will be tired and weary, needing medicine too, of course.

    What are they eating? this would be down to needing a supply line of food from somewhere. so, we have a huge amount of people, needing medicine, rest and food, also needing weapon supplies, and stuff, with merely the support of the people to provide them with these things? seems unlikely that it even got off the ground.

    Bombing power stations would be better than bombing water places. this is because then the production of the things that i.s.i.s. needs will be damaged. then, they could short out all the working machinery with an e.m.p. weapon.

    An e.m.p. weapon could easiest be created on short notice, with a battery that you launch into the opponents territory, but, it needs to be charged. this would require a car battery or such, maybe a spare air craft battery, that is charged with 'magnetism' to send a current through the area, where it will give off a pulse of magnetic energy. this pulse will affect all machines in the area, as, they use electricity to operate. creating the actual pulse will be down to charging the battery as if it were a magnet, of course, which is done by running current through the battery - actually, there is a way to charge a magnet with a car battery, of course. this charging needs to be done by getting all the charge out of the other batteries into a single on, to charge it to let off a huge pulse. this would mean that the charge, once released with t.n.t, would result in the explosion of the electrical kind, electrocuting people and machines alike, although very cheap.

    I cannot see i.s.i.s. holding on for much longer. no rest... no hope...

    Yemen War Brings Multiple Disasters: Death, Destruction, Cholera, Famine
    June 28, 2017 — More than two years of civil war have led to continually compounding disasters in Yemen. Fighting rages on in a deadly stalemate. The economy has been bombed into ruins. Hunger is widespread, and a new misery has been added: the world's biggest current outbreak of cholera, with more than 200,000 cases.

    Re: The war in Yemen Posting #3
    ※→ Waltky, et al,

    Yeah, I saw where the Ministry of Public Health recorded an additional 13,912 Cholera cases in the country between 3 and 6 June 2017; for a cumulative total of 96,219 suspected cases.

    Everyone is reporting different data.

    Personally, I don't care anymore about the Yemen. Cholera is often a result of water contaminated by feces. When I lived and worked in Sanaa, I would watch every day as the Yemen would come out and pour human waste right on the street and wash it down the street where it would eventually be absorbed into the ground water table.

    When you do that every day, for decades, a major outbreak is bound to happen.

    Most Respectfully,
    R
