Yemen's parliament approved a controversial law Saturday that ensures President Ali Abdullah Saleh complete immunity from prosecution.
The law was delayed for weeks as Saleh insisted on specific changes guaranteeing his aides partial protection from legal actions.
In return, Saleh will step down from power in Yemen next month after ruling the country for more than 33 years.
Since the president signed a power transfer deal in November, tens of thousands of young activists have marched in provinces across Yemen. They have vowed to have Saleh tried for the deaths of hundreds of unarmed protesters.
The largest protests Saturday took place in Sanaa, where many continued pushing for Saleh's prosecution.FULL STORY
Puppet or no puppet, what I asked if this was applicable to Yemen only. Follow me?
Yes I do. Very good point banasy. Very good, I woulda had the same question. But why are they doing this?
Similar to what happened with Suharto and Pinochet. This is sometimes the price demanded by a dictator to leave office without further bloodshed.
Considering how much bloodshed he has already caused within his country...
bloodshed is good for the enviorment... their is way to many people on earth right now anyways..
not to worry tho.. dec23-2012 is comming and mother nature is going to have the last laugh..
i need to find one of those german flying saucers and get off this planet...
@ banasy, I concer! His blood is the only blood that's gonna spill if this DEAL wasn't presented.
@ BOMBO Â©, I'm not familiar with either... could you enlighten me?
Ah, Ruffie...the date has been changed again?
How about this:
No-one knows when the world is going to end.
It ends when it ends.
When the Governments start pushing the people towards a "one world religion" ... the end is EXTREMELY near.
@banasy.. really.. really? you really belive no one knows or did know?.
what the heck happen to the mayans then?.. they got wiped out for narcing that's what..
it's dec23 for sure + or – a few days and maybe a few more to take into a account of the lack of leap years...
also i think the end of the world is going to be midnight on "central standard time"
cause jesus uses "cst" to track things on his naughty or nice list..
Thats just crap, only GOD knows!
Why is it that these big shots always get away with this crap and the little guy who was following orders get the shaft ? They need to hand him over to the people for justice.

Oh, you know that the peons mean nothing...not when the giant ego (and the life) of the big bad wolf is at stake...
It's just so wrong. Here this fat cat is going to live his life of luxury, while the peons will probably get the death penalty.
La di da di de

And the beast goes on....
