Please help me with the article in the sentence: "Protesters are accusing (?)the military forces of human rights abuses."
Will the situation change if an adjectice is used, for example: "Protesters are accusing (?)the Yemeni military forces of human rights abuses." Maybe no article at all in both cases?
Thank you.

  • English -

    You can either use "the" in both sentences or not. It doesn't make any difference.

    Your second sentence, of course, is much more specific since it refers to a particular country's military forces. With or without "the," the meaning is still clear.
