Mattis: US Will Improve Saudi Targeting to Kill Fewer Yemeni Civilians – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 30, 2017

Up to now the presstitute media has done a good job hiding US involvement in killing Yemeni civilians.

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/12/29/mattis-us-will-improve-saudi-targeting-to-kill-fewer-yemeni-civilians/

 …Interestingly, other US officials have tried to downplay their direct role in the Saudi war in recent weeks, and despite Mattis’ talk of improving the Saudis’ targeting, other Pentagon officials have claimed that the US has nothing to do with Saudi targeting whatsoever, and can’t be held responsible for what they hit.

Prince of Darkness

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 27, 2017

Chronicles magazine gives The House of Saud a one-two punch.

One

(Two is Taki’s column “Throw in the Towel” which is subscription blocked. I sent my paper edition payment in late so I am “suspended” and can’t offer a cut and paste nor URL but I will offer the last line) “Uncle Sam should be ashamed of himself. To be allied with such scum makes us all look pretty scummy.”

https://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/2018/January/43/1/magazine/article/10843173/

When a massive clan, galvanized by Sunni/Wahhabi Islam and asabiyyah (cohesive loyalty), gains control of the world’s second-largest oil reserves, you get the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Today, the Kingdom is a bloated welfare state whose population includes 5,000 “princes” who consume (according to Barron’s) up to $50 billion per year enjoying ridiculously opulent lifestyles; a class of wealthy “noble” families loyal to the “royals” (e.g,, the late Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, multibillionaire Saudi construction magnate and father of 56 children, including the late Osama); and some 20 million Saudi nationals, two thirds of whom work for the government and are, to varying degrees, on the royal dole… Read the rest of this entry »

PALACE ASSAULT Ballistic missile intercepted over Saudi Arabia capital Riyadh just seconds before it slammed into royal palace

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 19, 2017

There are no reported casualties at this time. Can’t say the same when SA decimates a Yemeni town. But then you don’t have headlines like this when the sandal is on the other foot.

I am sure the scientific wizards at the Saudi Ministry of Culture and Information had the missile trajectory down to the inch (oops, meter). CIA to SA – “tell them it was the Royal Palace”.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/5171696/yemen-rebels-ballistic-missile-saudi-arabia-riyadh/

A ballistic missile was launched at the Saudi capital, a Houthi spokesman said.

Mohammed Abdussalam said on Twitter that a Volcano 2-H ballistic missile was fired towards al-Yamama royal palace. Read the rest of this entry »

Libya Is Home to a 21st-Century Slave Market and the UN Security Council Won’t Act | Alternet

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 27, 2017

Yah, but all the US, French and UK oil profits were worth reneging on the US agreement to leave Libya alone when it renounced nukes. Oh wait, Al Qaeda runs the show now.

Oh well! Let’s go to Yemen and see who we can save there!

https://www.alternet.org/world/libya-home-21st-century-slave-market-and-un-security-council-wont-act

CNN recently aired a powerful report from Libya, where the reporters went into a house and shot footage of an auction of human beings. Yes, this is a 21st-century slave market. Read the rest of this entry »

Biased Reporting on a Bad Guy – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 24, 2017

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/11/michael-s-rozeff/biased-reporting-on-a-bad-guy-mohammed-bin-salman/

Nowadays, the press is busy associating Yemen with Iran in order to justify Saudi aggression. However, it is reluctantly being forced to acknowledge the Saudi starvation strategy. The spread of cholera and the rising number of deaths is the attention-getter after 2 years.

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.

More

Yah, MORE! That’s what I want, MORE!

http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2017/november/20/why-are-we-helping-saudi-arabia-destroy-yemen/

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.” Read the rest of this entry »

Saudis Reject UN Blacklisting Over Yemen Child Deaths – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 7, 2017

 Guess who is enabling and paying for much of the child killing.

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/10/06/saudis-reject-un-blacklisting-over-yemen-child-deaths/

 Saudi Arabia is complaining on Friday after winding up on the UN blacklist for violence against children in warzones related to their attacks on Yemen. The report blamed the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen for at least 683 child casualties in 2016.

Saudi officials complained their inclusion was “misleading,” but offered no evidence to the contrary. Saudi Ambassador Abdallah al-Mouallimi insists that Saudi warplanes exercise the “maximum degree of care.”

The UN puts SA on a list. SA does not appear to be shaking in it’s sandles.

Be seeing you

The stain of Yemen: U.S. support in Saudi war remains appalling – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 3, 2017

Quite an admission from the neo-conish Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

http://www.post-gazette.com/opinion/editorials/2017/08/30/The-stain-of-Yemen-U-S-support-in-Saudi-war-remains-appalling/stories/201708300032

U.S. involvement in the Yemen war is based primarily on the fact that America sells the Saudis warplanes. Those warplanes need spare parts, munitions and U.S. technical support to keep them in the air bombing Yemen. In terms of the merits of the parties to the conflict with reference to U.S. strategic interests in the region, there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference among the Yemen parties to the conflict. America’s taking sides in the Saudi-Iran, Sunni-Shiite competition in the region is a question far separate from the Yemen war. Read the rest of this entry »
