Top Republican Guard commander calls Saleh a butcher

Filed under: Security Forces, War Crimes, Yemen, protest statements — by Jane Novak at 1:43 pm on Thursday, May 26, 2011

Colonel Ali Ali Shaddadi Ahdillat commander in the Republican Guard issues an important message to his brothers and his colleagues, Republican Guard officers and members of the Republican Guard units, and says Saleh is a butcher and a killer and not to follow his orders anymore. Link


This may be the straw that broke the camels back. Its quite significant. The Republican Guards are the unit headed by Saleh’s son Prince Ahmed. Coupled with the earlier tribal excommunication, I’m nearly optimistic for a quick resolution. Tick tock.

What is that noise? The creaking groaning dying throes of the Saleh regime. The military sent out a text message; tomorrow’s pro-Saleh demonstration in Sanaa should be rather quiet. Update: tomorrows pro-Saleh demo canceled.

The pro-Saleh supporters never meet in tagheer square, that’s where the anti’s are. the pro-government supporters are in tahrir, you should get this right because it’s a basic fact at this point.
