Posted by M. C. Fox on August 14, 2018

Winning hearts and minds one bombed out village and funeral procession at a time.

Friday, deep into the 17th year of America’s longest war, Taliban forces overran Ghazni, a provincial capital that sits on the highway from Kabul to Kandahar.

The ferocity of the Taliban offensive brought U.S. advisers along with U.S. air power, including a B-1 bomber, into the battle.

“As the casualty toll in Ghazni appeared to soar on Sunday,” The Wall Street Journal reported, “hospitals were spilling over with dead bodies, corpses lay in Ghazni’s streets, and gunfire and shelling were preventing relatives from reaching cemeteries to bury their dead.”

In Yemen Monday, a funeral was held in the town square of Saada for 40 children massacred in an air strike on a school bus by Saudis or the UAE, using U.S.-provided planes and bombs… Read the rest of this entry »

Saudi Airstrike on Yemen School Bus Kills at Least 50, Mostly Children – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 10, 2018

US foreign policy today. To paraphrase Hillary, we came, we saw, they died.

Normally the CIA does a neater job but then they are partnering with those less experienced in government overthrow, the Saudi’s.

https://news.antiwar.com/2018/08/09/saudi-airstrike-on-yemen-school-bus-kill-at-least-50-mostly-children/

Saudi Arabian spokesman Col. Turki al-Malki was defiant about the attack on the busload of children, saying it was retaliation for a missile strike from the rebel Houthis. He said this made the attack a “legitimate military action in accordance with international humanitarian law.”

The Saudis are no strangers to killing scores of Yemeni children in airstrikes with no apparent military goal, and expressing comfort in that fact. At the same time, growing international outcry, as well as fury among Yemenis about the Saudis’ actions are soaring already. The fact that this was a high profile attack scattering the bodies of children across a crowded market is only going to make things worse.

The US sells bombs and warplanes to Saudi Arabia, and refuels planes like the ones that attacked the bus. Those wishing to protest this should call the State Dept. (202) 647-6575, press 8 for comment line. Say: I want the State Dept to condemn the Saudis for bombing Yemeni children and I want the US to stop selling weapons to Saudi Arabia.

Be seeing you

MoA – Yemen – U.S. Grants Approval For Genocide

Posted by M. C. Fox on July 15, 2018

Yemen – U.S. Grants Approval For Genocide

The genocide in Yemen is going to start tomorrow. Eight million are already on the brink of starvation. Eighteen out of twenty-six million Yemenis live in the mountainous heartlands (green) which are under control of the Houthi and their allies. They are surrounded by Saudi and U.A.E. forces and their mercenaries. There is little agriculture. The only supply line from the outside world will soon be cut off. The people will starve..

Why Is Washington Backing Saudi Starvation Policy In Yemen?

Posted by M. C. Fox on July 15, 2018

This has turned into Ron Paul day. What a great site!

As the Saudis attack the Yemeni port town of Hodeidah, the stated goal is to starve the residents into opposing the Houthi forces controlling the city. The US is actively participating in what is clearly a war crime against civilians. Why?

Saudi Arabia, oil, Israel, money. Lots of reasons-none good for US.

We are hear to win your hearts and minds or we will starve you to death.

They talk about the radical sympathizing White Helmets in Syria. Of course the US supports them.

Foreign Policy Failure: America Has Not Learned from Its Wars | The National Interest Blog

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 1, 2018

In 2011, I observed directly and graphically that our war, which was ten years old at the time, had failed to accomplish our objectives and reportedthat U.S. leaders were claiming success where they knew there was none.

US Government. Lying about war for 240 years.

Daniel L. Davis

It’s time for the Washington foreign-policy establishment to consider the seemingly unthinkable: perpetual foreign-military operations and occupations do not enhance American national security and economic prosperity.

Overwhelming evidence—currently on painful display in Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen —reveals the stark reality that these operations drain our nation of critical resources, produces a slow-bleed of U.S. troops, and deteriorates our ability to respond to potentially existential battles in the future. Changes must be urgently made if we are to reverse this negative condition… Read the rest of this entry »

US Admits ‘Doing the Planning’ for Saudi Strikes in Yemen

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 29, 2018

US involvement in mid-air refueling as beneficial for civilians being bombed

I bet the civilians being bombed in the poorest of the poor countries feel better knowing their destruction is being run by Uncle Sam.

The dead civilian men, women and children probably not so much.

http://theantimedia.com/us-planning-saudi-strikes-yemen/

Written by 

Mattis now admits the US is “doing the planning” in Yemen strikes, and has shown the Saudis how the concept of a no-strike zone is supposed to work, and engaged in a maturing process of “battlefield management” intended to see Saudi strikes killing fewer civilians. Read the rest of this entry »

Is MSNBC Now the Most Dangerous Warmonger Network?

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 4, 2018

Maybe. If so, quite an accomplishment considering the efforts of the other networks.

https://www.truthdig.com/articles/msnbc-now-dangerous-warmonger-network/

The evidence is damning. And the silence underscores the arrogance.

More than seven weeks after a devastating report from the media watch group FAIR, top executives and prime-time anchors at MSNBC still refuse to discuss how the network’s obsession with Russia has thrown minimal journalistic standards out the window.

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

Posted by M. 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 M. 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 »
