Saudis killing Yemenis with US-Supplied Cluster Bombs

Israel and Saudi Arabia represent regional fascist police state viciousness. Fundamental international laws are systematically violated. Israel mass murders Palestinians with impunity. Saudi terror-bombing massacres Yemenis – willfully targeting defenseless noncombatant men, women and children. US-led Western nations provide full support and encouragement. Media scoundrels turn a blind eye to what demands daily denunciation. Earlier reports indicated Saudis attacked Yemen’s Saada province with banned chemical agents. Toxic gas left ...Read full article...

Taking the life out of Yemen

The US-supported bombing of Yemen has left 1.4 billion people without food while 300,000 have fled their towns. The Yemeni Minister of Communication, Nadia al Saqaf, has said that Yemen will need at least $1 billion dollars in aid over the next six months to deal with the ongoing humanitarian crisis caused by the aerial bombing campaign led by Saudi Arabia. “The humanitarian situation is much deteriorated by the ...Read full article...

Saudi Arabia and Washington block Humanitarian from reaching Yemen

Saudi warplanes continued terror-bombing residential areas and civilian infrastructure. Yemen is Obama’s war – more genocide on his rap sheet against 25 million Yemenis wanting freedom from imperial oppression. US/Saudi imposed air and sea blockade prevents vital humanitarian aid in amounts needed from reaching desperate Yemenis – including food, clean water, medical supplies and other essentials to life. Obama, Saudis and rogue regional allies (including Israel) want Yemenis starved ...Read full article...

Obama Rejects Peace in Yemen

Yemen is being raped in plain sight. Obama bears full responsibility. It’s his planned and orchestrated war – using Saudi and other regional proxies to wage premeditated aggression against a country threatening no one. He turned another part of the Arab world into a greater cauldron of violence, chaos and instability than already – with no end of conflict in sight. Civilian men, women and children suffer most. They’re ...Read full article...

Humanitarian Crisis Conditions in Yemen

Conditions were dire before Saudi terror-bombing began. Yemen is the region’s poorest country. Half the population is food insecure in normal times. Yemenis lack other essentials to life. Political stability is impossible without addressing humanitarian issues responsibly. Before Saudi aggression began, UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Ould Cheikh Ahmed said over 10 million Yemenis need food aid. Half of them face acute food shortages. Millions of children face malnutrition. ...Read full article...

South Africa calls in the Army to fight Xenophobia

South African Army troops will be deployed in areas affected by xenophobic attacks on immigrants from other African countries. The measure was announced this week by the Defence Minister, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula. In a speech live from the black ghetto in Alexandra, Johannesburg, the minister justified this measure on the need to “restore state authority” after a couple from Zimbabwe was attacked the night before in the area. Mapisa-Nqakula said ...Read full article...

America and Islamic Terrorists: Partners Against Peace

America is a killing machine. It gives rogue state ruthlessness new meaning. It’s a lying machine. Truth is strictly verboten. Big Lies consistently substitute. White House hyperbole claims victories against Islamic State fighters. Suppressed is what everyone needs to know. Washington actively recruits, funds, arms and directs these terrorists and likeminded groups. They’re used as US proxies – shock troops fighting America’s dirty wars, currently in Syria, Iraq and ...Read full article...

Israel Joins Obama’s War on Yemen

Obama terror-bombed Yemen throughout his tenure. He murdered hundreds of noncombatant men, women and children in cold blood. He’s at it again. He’s waging proxy war against Houthi rebels. He’s using rogue state regional allies to do his dirty work. They ousted illegitimately US-installed puppet Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. Israel quietly joined Obama’s dirty war. On March 22, Houthi leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi accused Washington and Israel of using Takfiri ...Read full article...

US and Saudi Aggressors Want Yemeni Victims to Halt Conflict

They want unconditional surrender. They want what they won’t get. Blaming victims is one of Washington’s dirtiest games. Naked aggression is called liberation. Humanitarian intervention is claimed. Mass slaughter and destruction are considered democracy-building measures. Plundering countries for profit is called economic development. Yemen is Obama’s latest atrocity. How many more countries will he rape – turn to rubble, mass slaughter defenseless civilians, and create appalling humanitarian crisis conditions? ...Read full article...

Saudi Terror-Bombing Massacres Dozens of Yemeni Schoolchildren

Saudi warplanes target US intelligence-designated sites. Civilian men, women and children are considered fair game. They suffer most in all wars. Deliberately targeting them is longstanding US policy – a shocking war crime by any standard. Tuesday was the latest example. Reports indicate Saudi warplanes struck a populated Ma’rib area. A local source said dozens of defenseless schoolchildren were massacred in cold blood. The exact number of dead and ...Read full article...

Yemen and The Militarization of Strategic Waterways

Securing US Control over Socotra Island and the Gulf of Aden. “Whoever attains maritime supremacy in the Indian Ocean would be a prominent player on the international scene.” (US Navy Geostrategist Rear Admiral Alfred Thayus Mahan (1840-1914)) The Yemeni archipelago of Socotra in the Indian Ocean is located some 80 kilometres off the Horn of Africa and 380 kilometres South of the Yemeni coastline. The islands of Socotra are a wildlife reserve ...Read full article...

Obama’s Wars Murder Noncombatant Men, Women and Children

Neocon lunatics in Washington consider it a small price to pay. International law calls it the highest of high crimes. In the 1960s, Vietnam war protesters chanted “Hey! Hey! LBJ! How many kids did you kill today?” Obama way exceeds his ruthlessness – murdering and maiming noncombatants in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Donbass, Palestinians complicit with Israel and now Yemen. Who’s next? Everywhere he shows up, mass slaughter and ...Read full article...

US Lifts Weapons Ban on Egypt

The American government prioritizes profit over democracy The United States Tuesday turned around its relationship with Egypt on Tueday after it announced it lifted the existing weapons ban against Egypt, which means that the corporations of the military industrial complex are now able to deliver combat aircraft, missiles and tanks to the regime of Abdelfatá to Sisi. The Obama administration froze the delivery of military equipment in October of ...Read full article...

US-Sponsored Slow-Motion Genocide in Yemen

Bush and Obama administrations murdered Yemenis for years – through drone terror-bombings and internal subversion killing mostly civilians. Yemen is the region’s poorest country. Its people suffer horrifically. US imperial policy exacerbates conditions greatly. Before leaving to participate in Iranian nuclear talks in Lausanne on Sunday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov highlighted Washington’s typical double standard hypocrisy. On the one hand, it ousted Ukraine’s democratically President Viktor Yanukovych – ...Read full article...

US-Created Violence and Chaos in Yemen

Yemen is one of many examples of what happens following lawless US intervention. Obama waged drone war on Yemen throughout his tenure – indiscriminately killing many hundreds of defenseless victims, mostly civilians. Like Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Palestine, Yemen is a cauldron of violence and instability threatening to spin entirely out-of-control. In January, Houthi forces ousted US-backed Ab-Rabbu Mansour Hadi’s regime. They took over the presidential palace. They ...Read full article...
