Obama's War on Yemen Risks Involving Iran

April 16th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Is this what Washington and Israel intend or another example of the rule of untended consequences of reckless actions? What's ongoing in Yemen, Syria, Libya, Palestine and Ukraine dangerously resemble events preceding WW I.

One nation after another got involved to help both sides. Things spun out-of-control.

Deadly consequences followed. Before they ended, over 20 million died. Many more were maimed for life. An entire generation of youth was lost.

If Washington challenges Russia over Ukraine militarily, Syria directly by invading, or Iran over Yemen belligerently, all bets are off. The worst of outcomes may follow.

Obama's Rape of Yemen

April 13th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Obama is systematically raping Yemen - using Saudi-led terror-bombing to do his dirty work.

He wants Washington regaining control over its former client state. The lives and welfare of millions of Yemenis don't matter.

Israel's Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) believes "(t)he Saudi-led collective move in Yemen entails a significant advantage for Israel."

Houthi Ansarullah fighters "cannot be defeated from the air. The Saudi goal is to prevent (them) from using advanced weapons - fighter jets and surface-to-surface missiles - and keep the strategic port city of Aden from falling into their hands."

Houthis don't threaten Israel. Al Qaeda, IS and likeminded extremist groups don't have air power except when Washington supplies it.

Russia Urges Resolving Yemen's Conflict Diplomatically

April 7th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Russia is the world's leading peace and stability proponent. US policy is polar opposite.

You'd never know what Russia stands for the way it’s irresponsibly bashed. Big Lies substitute for hard truths.

Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and other Russian officials continue working tirelessly for peace in Syria, Ukraine and now Yemen.

On April 2, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich expressed great concern about Yemen's ongoing conflict.

Saying "Moscow continues to proceed from the assumption that there is no alternative to a political solution in the Yemeni crisis."

Saudi-Led Invasion of Yemen Begins

April 6th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

When American or US proxy forces wage naked aggression against other countries it's called liberating them.

When nations being attacked defend themselves, they're called terror states.

On April 2, Reuters reported "dozens of unidentified troops land(ing) by sea in Aden…"

Perhaps ahead of mass Saudi-led invasion plans. Houthi political council member Daifullah Shami told Sputnik News foreign troops disembarked from Saudi and Egyptian vessels.

Ansar Allah movement member Ahmed al-Shami said:

"The number of troopers who landed in the Yemen port of Aden is unknown, but we are talking about dozens."

Saudis Bomb Russian Consulate in Yemen

April 6th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

During US-led NATO's rape of Yugoslavia, China's Belgrade embassy was willfully bombed.

Claiming by mistake didn't wash. The Pentagon included China's embassy on its target list.

Yemen is Obama's war. Saudis and other regional states involved are US proxies.

Months of planning preceded air and naval strikes. Yemeni targets were carefully chosen - among them Russia's Aden consulate. Maybe its Sanaa embassy is next.

Bombing its Aden consulate is part of Washington's increasing confrontation with Moscow - a reckless agenda including vicious propaganda, US Ukraine policy, its growing Eastern European military footprint and saber rattling exercises close to Russia's borders.

US-Created Violence and Chaos in Yemen

April 5th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

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 extended control to other parts of the country. Last year, Obama ludicrously touted Yemen as a success story.

Israel Joins Obama's War on Yemen

April 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

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.

Houthis 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 extremists to stage terrorist attacks on Yemeni civilians.

Mosques were targeted. Scores were killed, hundreds injured. Al-Houthi urged Yemenis to unite against elements aiming to destabilize the country.

"Everyone is a target," he said. He didn't know at the time Washington intended using proxy forces to terror-bomb Yemen into submission.

Obama's Dirty War on Yemen

April 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Candidate Obama was elected promising peace. On October 28, 2007, he said:

"I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out of Afghanistan by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do."

"I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank."

Instead he escalated. America's war on Afghanistan continues. Permanent occupation is planned.

Obama arguably is America's most belligerent president ever. He exceeds the worst of his predecessors.

Multiple direct and proxy wars continue raging nonstop throughout his tenure - against Afghanistan, parts of Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Somalia, partnered with Israel against Palestine and now Yemen.

Israeli Stooge Abbas Supports Obama's War on Yemen

April 4th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Israel appointed Mahmoud Abbas Palestinian Authority leader to provide enforcer services - dirty work it subcontracts.

He's hugely corrupt. He amassed great stolen wealth serving Israeli interests - conspiring against his own people.

He's a Palestinian Judas, a longtime Israeli collaborator. He has no legitimacy whatever. He belongs in prison, not high office.

On Thursday, he expressed support for Saudi terror-bombing - naked aggression by any standard.

He backs US-installed ousted puppet Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

He ludicrously called restoring him to power important to create Yemeni security and unity.

He turned a blind eye to his despotic rule. He's mindless of US-directed Saudi terror bombing murdering scores of civilian men, women and children - maybe hundreds by now.

US-Sponsored Slow-Motion Genocide in Yemen

April 1st, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

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 - replacing him with putschist Nazi thugs.
