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!

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.

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 »

US Airstrikes Are Wiping Out Entire Families in Yemen and Syria

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 31, 2017

http://theantimedia.org/us-airstrikes-killing-families-syria-yemen/

Written by 

(ANTIMEDIA Op-ed)  The United States is killing entire families in Raqqa, Syria, and enabling Saudi Arabia to do the same in Yemen.

In June of this year, the U.S. led a campaign to retake the city of Raqqa from ISIS fighters while the Russian and Syrian militaries were also attempting to do the same thing. In the first week of fighting, U.N. war crimes investigators warned that the U.S. had already killed 300 civilians from air strikes alone in that seven day period. Read the rest of this entry »

US Troops Are on the Ground in Yemen for al-Qaeda Offensive

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 6, 2017

Anything for Saudi Arabia and Israel.

If we are going to send troops to an already dead zone make it the Bureau of Land Management SS. Yemen is a good place for them.

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/08/04/us-troops-are-on-the-ground-in-yemen-for-al-qaeda-offensive/

A day after the US was reported to have participated in an anti al-Qaeda offensive in southern Shabwa Province of Yemen, the Pentagon is confirming that a “small number” of US ground troops have been deployed into Yemen for an ongoing operation against the al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) force.

Are American Wars Just and Moral? – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 26, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/07/patrick-j-buchanan/american-wars-just-moral/

In which of the countries we have attacked or invaded in this century — Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen — are the people better off 
than they were before we came?

And we wonder why they hate us.

Just like here at home it is about control. Not improving life.

The problem is there are fewer sheeple over there than here.

Liars Lying About Nearly Everything – The Unz Review

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2017

http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/liars-lying-about-nearly-everything/

The United States has been using lies to go to war since 1846, when Americans who believed in manifest destiny sought to expand to the Pacific Ocean at the expense of Mexico, acquiring by force of arms California and what were to become the southwestern states. In 1898 the U.S. picked up the pieces of a dying Spanish Empire in a war that was driven by American imperialists and the yellow dog reporting of the Hearst Newspaper chain. And then came World War 1, World War 2, and Korea, all avoidable and all enabled by deliberate lying coming out of Washington… Read the rest of this entry »

White House Close to Finalizing Over $100 Billion in Arms Sales to Saudis

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 15, 2017

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/05/14/white-house-close-to-finalizing-over-100-billion-in-arms-sales-to-saudis/

Earlier this month, US officials said the US was seeking to reach “billions” of dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia as part of Trump’s visit to Riyadh. With a week left before the visit, officials now say the White House is very close to the deal, and that it will amount to over $100 billion in sales.

The same Saudi’s that financed 9/11 probably using US paid for resources. Read the rest of this entry »

The Shame of Killing Innocent People by — Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 30, 2017

http://original.antiwar.com/kelly/2017/04/28/the-shame-of-killing-innocent-people/

Iran may be providing some weapons to the Houthi rebels, but it’s important to clarify what support the US has given to the Saudi-led coalition. As of March 21, 2016, Human Rights Watch reported the following weapon sales, in 2015 to the Saudi government:

  • July 2015, the US Defense Department approved a number of weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, including a US $5.4 billion deal for 600 Patriot Missiles and a $500 million deal for more than a million rounds of ammunition, hand grenades, and other items, for the Saudi army.
  • According to the US Congressional review, between May and September, the US sold $7.8 billion worth of weapons to the Saudis.
  • In October, the US government approved the sale to Saudi Arabia of up to four Lockheed Littoral Combat Ships for $11.25 billion.
  • In November, the US signed an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth $1.29 billion for more than 10,000 advanced air-to-surface munitions including laser-guided bombs, “bunker buster” bombs, and MK84 general purpose bombs; the Saudis have used all three in Yemen.

The US Provided Cover for the Saudi Starvation Strategy in Yemen

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 10, 2017

Although the UN agencies have offered no public estimate of the number of Yemenis who have died of malnutrition-related conditions, it is likely that the figure is much higher than the estimate of 10,000 killed directly by the Saudi-coalition bombing. United Nations agencies have estimated that 462,000 Yemeni children under five years of age are already suffering severe acute malnutrition, putting them at serious risk of death from starvation and malnutrition-related disease.
