TEHRAN,(Basirat)- Today, we are witnessing a confrontation between the power of military action and ideology in Yemen. On one side, there are Ansarullah revolutionary fighters who have relied on their soft power stemmed from an attractive national and religious ideology. On the other is an American-Saudi coalition which is trying, via resorting to military and hard power, to defeat them.

Maybe at the time that Francis Fukuyama, American political scientist, was raising the issue of the absolute ‘victory of liberalism’ over other schools of thought and ideologies as an unrivalled power, no one would have thought that liberalism will have zero success in many countries and areas around the world. These issues that to what extent ideology influences the landscape of politics and if a strong school of thought can prevail against a powerful tool, and vice versa have long been in question. 

In the 1950-1960s, the Liberals declared the end of the era of ideology worldwide and announced that the world has entered a new period of rational, realistic, and empirical policies and adopted a stronger stance on their belief by beating their chief and toughest rival in 1990. In 1992, American political scientist Samuel Huntington proposed the theory of "The Clash of Civilizations”, which was diametrically opposed to what Fukuyama had said. In order to prevent the clash of civilizations, the West and its regional allies preferred intercivilizational conflict to core state conflict and this project was completed in 2011 simultaneously with the start of the wave of Islamic Awakening, emergence of Takfiri groups and clashes between adjacent states like Saudi aggression against Yemen. 

The US-Saudi coalition launched an aggression against the innocent people of Yemen and Ansarullah fighters by all means possible on March 26, 2015. The popular movement of Ansarullah, which was primarily founded to fight against poverty, corruption and colonial and arrogant powers, managed to accompany people with itself.

Discourse of justice and countering poverty swept through Yemen’s southern areas in addition to its northern and central areas and various Yemeni groups followed this lead. The reason behind Yemeni people’s trust in this ideology and discourse was Ansarullah movement’s resolve to fight against colonialism and tyranny of the government.

Ansarullah has been the target of vehement criticism by the then Yemeni governments and Saudi Arabia since its establishment apparently for its defiant gesture against arrogant and hegemonic powers.
Today, Ansarullah movement, along with other branches of the Muslim religion, has managed to resist against Saudi Arabia’s one-year-old aggression and even deliver major blows at the US-Saudi coalition. Despite the US and the Arabian coalition’s support for Riyadh and Daesh and al-Qaeda terrorist groups to destroy Ansarullah, they failed to do so and Ansarullah fighters became stronger after each battle.  
Saudi Arabia and the then government of Yemen launched an all-out joint war (known as the sixth war) against Ansarullah in August 2009. In that war, the pious Ansarullah fighters were not defeated and managed to push deep into the Saudi territory. Additionally, they struck massive blows at the Saudi army and also captured a number of Saudi soldiers.

Therefore, we can draw this conclusion that today we are witnessing a confrontation between the power of military action and ideology in Yemen. On one side, there are Ansarullah revolutionary fighters who have relied on their soft power stemmed from an attractive national and religious ideology. On the other is an American-Saudi coalition which is trying, via resorting to military and hard power, to defeat them without noticing this that one cannot bombard an ideology.
