    --------
    In late October will be held income allied to one of the most dangerous areas of Yemen troops. This is Aden, the second city of the country located in the Middle East.

    The particular situation in the conflict facing Yemen, more than 11 years ago, is that in the group that accompanied the entry of the soldiers who departed from the area of the UAE with the support of the government of Saudi Arabia, will attend Colombian ex-military, who after passing a rigorous selection process, will also be coordination between the lines of these operations.

    In an interview with RCN Radio, retired General Jaime Ruiz, president of the Association of retired officers of the Armed Forces (Acore) noted that this is not new, as repeatedly former soldiers have left for other countries because they have seen best conditions and guarantees.

    "They got there because they are the best qualified and have an advantage because there fulfill their tasks and not imprison as is happening here," said Jaime Ruiz.

    General Ruiz stressed that this means the recognition they have the military forces of Colombia in the world and noted that the former members who have left for foreign territory have made their own decision.

    "We are proud to recognize us as the best fighters and we are there, each one can give you a different reading but what should be noted is that it is an individual decision and a choice of work and salary are better option, plus It is not new: in the Emirates have many fighters, "the general added Ruiz.

    He pointed retired Gen. Jaime Ruiz that often also the decision of former military corresponds to the need to find less risky to perform their work and are today represented not only on the battlefield but in the courts.

    "Here the military against terrorism not only play his life to defend the instuciones but his freedom, imprisoned 15,000 people have a situation of concern for the conditions of struggle and have insisted that this must change because there will be who will defend this country, "he said.

    However, the President said Acore not yet known the security of these soldiers at work in Yemen.

    --------

    so columbian retirees have become mercenaries for nato plans?? this certainly will be in full knowledge of the white house puppet government of columbia.

    cubans in syria ( rightfully of course ) and columbian government in yemen... west asia is seeing a big internationalization.

    cuba and venezuela need to help the farc liberation movement to take control in columbia.

    i don't know how much of the article text is true, though the source, rcn radio, seems affiliated with the columbian government.

    These are old news, plenty of Gulf States hired mercenaries after the Arab Spring, fearful that their militarizes might renegade on orders to shoot protesters.

    you may be correct.

    the columbian military is experienced in fighting a guerrilla force ( farc ) for decades... their training and experience might be better than the saudis or the sudanis you mention.

    actually not... before this, west asian and north african conflicts saw involvement of "muslim" terrorist groups other than mossad and american, british, turkish and french operatives in order to destabilize non-nato governments or create havoc generally.

    come on, we have seen how bahraini protestors in 2011 were brutalized by saudi, and then there was western government help to the bahrain monarchy as well.

    from ( Gulf states send forces to Bahrain following protests - BBC News )...

    from ( Deplorable Bahraini Human Rights Abuses Continue | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization )...

    Bahrain: Crushing Pro-Democracy Protests. American and British Police Chiefs Step Up State Repression | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

    all these gulfi monarchies, anti-democracy as they are, must go.

    South American countries for some reason have always been involved in the middle east. Cuba send hundreds of soldiers during the Arab-Israeli wars and that is only one of the examples.

    i am guessing that was to syria.

    that would be in the same internationalism spirit as when cuba sent tens of thousands of soldiers to angola.

    edit : correct.. this is about the 1973 war with israel ( "yom kippur war" )..

    Why do most humans have the tendency to always support the aggressor?

    This is news to me.
    A few rich insecure countries have turned one of the poorest country in the world into a playground. Middle East has become a perpetual war zone where the only party which gains out of the war is American weapon industry.

    I have a friend living in Yemen, I hope he's doing fine.

    and these rich countries, whether in east or west, cannot even be called real democracies, and yet they think they are morally superior to decide the fate of other countries.

    you said it !!

    wars... the foolishness of it all.

    yep, cia has a very useful database about mercenaries from ally countries.

    must be good to be cia boss.

    I agree that America, Israel and Saudi Arabia are the epitome evil.
