The editor in chief of the newspaper says in his article that the president Ali Abdullah Saleh is known by taking his courageous decisions always. It is known that the decision to go to war needs a big courage and the decision of stopping the war needs a bigger courage. We have always known the president as courageous in defending the national unity and courageous in preserving the unity. Had it not been for his bravery and insistence on the war in 1994, the decision of secessionism would have been his tragedy and Yemen would have returned divided. Thus, the president was courageous in insisting on continuation of the battle until the unity had been preserved.
Nowadays continue the sounds of projectiles, tanks and airplanes in the events in Saadah and continues the bleeding of the Yemeni blood of our military and civilian sons. These bloods are very dear and expensive for the president and we are certain he feels sorry and pained of shedding it.
The president has always been courageous in his war and peace decisions, courageous in his pardon and taking the decision of his pardon for the group of 16. Thus, we hope he would stop the bleeding of blood in Saadah and he would always be courageous by this decision.
