The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Why Are We Helping Saudi Arabia Destroy Yemen?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 21, 2017

Because it is worth all those dead women and children to accomplish… you know… that thing Saudi Arabia and Israel said they want to do…you remember…yah that.  Besides, it lowers our bomb stockpile so the pentagram can pay it pals to make more.

Yah, MORE! That’s what I want, MORE!

It’s remarkable that whenever you read an article about Yemen in the mainstream media, the central role of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the tragedy is glossed over or completely ignored. A recent Washington Post article purporting to tell us “how things got so bad” explains to us that, “it’s a complicated story” involving “warring regional superpowers, terrorism, oil, and an impending climate catastrophe.”

No, Washington Post, it’s simpler than that. The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country. It started with the “Arab Spring” which had all the fingerprints of State Department meddling, and it escalated with 2015’s unprovoked Saudi attack on the country to re-install Riyadh’s preferred leader. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk as starvation and cholera rage…

And why is there a cholera epidemic? Because the Saudi government – with US support – has blocked every port of entry to prevent critical medicine from reaching suffering Yemenis. This is not a war. It is cruel murder.

The United States is backing Saudi aggression against Yemen by cooperating in every way with the Saudi military. Targeting, intelligence, weapons sales, and more. The US is a partner in Saudi Arabia’s Yemen crimes.

Does holding hands with Saudi Arabia as it slaughters Yemeni children really reflect American values? Is anyone even paying attention?

NO

Be seeing you

    This is the sad story with the damn news media. They filter and often suppress inconvenient facts and thus subvert the truth. It is criminal what the Saudis are doing in Yemen. But, perhaps we ought not be surprised when we stop to consider that Saudi Arabia is one of the most odious regimes in the world.
