yemen realizes that their citizens shouldn't fight in iraq

I found this on Cnn .com


big up to the yemenis for realizing there is no reason their citizens shoudl volunteeer to die for a regime that has brutalized it's ppl for so many years


The Yemen Times
This newspaper's Web site posted a news story about Yemen citizens attempting to go to Iraq to fight U.S. and British troops. Below is an excerpt from that article.

...Despite the superiority of the US military, there is hope amid Yemenis and Arabs that the US forces will not be able to continue for too long. "We will do our best alongside our Iraqi brothers to find Americans face to face" said one of the Yemenis who arrived in Baghdad recently to fight US forces. The Yemeni government however, tried to limit the number of Yemenis leaving to Baghdad as much as possible. It was reported that Yemeni authorities at Sana'a airport prevented Thursday 29 persons from leaving the country for Syria on their way to Iraq to join 30 others who have already arrived in Baghdad last Wednesday. The volunteer fighters denounced behavior by the airport authority and even clashed with them. Some of them were arrested while others set a strike inside the airport for some hours and went back home without their passports....

nananananana...lost your passport

I'm not sure how this is really great news. Yeah, so in the short term they're preventing some people from heading over there. This does nothing for the fact that the people who want to go still hate that the US/UK are next door and are willing to give up their lives for what they perceive to be justice.

This is just a band aid solution. So long as people feel the way they do, you can take away their passports, you can tie them up in their homes, but you can't kill an idea.

It's all very sad.
