UN Declares Highest Humanitarian Emergency Level in Yemen

July 6th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Yemen is Obama's war - premeditated genocidal aggression against 26 million Yemenis using Saudi-led terror bombing and suffocating blockade to his dirty work.

The entire population is at risk. Official death and injury reports way understate reality. Casualties mount daily. Millions don't have enough food to eat. They can't get medical treatment for injuries and illnesses.

Yemen is being systematically destroyed - raped the way America treats one country after another in lunatic pursuit of unchallenged global dominance.

A holocaust is unfolding in plain sight, largely ignored by Western media. Yemen is 90% dependent on food imports. At the same time, Saudi terror bombing crippled its agriculture sector. Famine threatens the country. Millions of lives are at risk.

Iran's Humanitarian "Rescue" Ship to Yemen

May 13th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Washington wants mass Yemeni casualties. It prioritizes overwhelming human suffering as a strategy to defeat resistance to its proxy war of aggression.

Iran is the region's most prominent peacemaker. It vows not to let Yemen become another Gaza. It intends trying to deliver vital humanitarian aid despite US/Saudi efforts to block it.

On Saturday, a cargo ship named "Rescue" set sail for Yemen. It carries 2,500 tons of medical supplies, food, water, tents and other needed aid.

On board are human rights workers, doctors, other medical professionals, anti-war activists and Iranian journalists.

Washington and Saudis Plan Escalated Aggression on Yemen

May 10th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

On Thursday, John Kerry met with Saudi officials in Riyadh. They planned escalated aggression on Yemen harming defenseless civilians most.

A so-called proposed 5-day humanitarian ceasefire is phony. Terror-bombing continues. US/Saudi enforced blockade prevents enough essentials to life from entering Yemen.

Suggesting a limited pause in fighting is willful deception. Washington wants all-out terror war against 25 million Yemenis.

It wants control regained over its former client state - no matter how much mass slaughter and destruction it takes to achieve it.

It bears repeating what other articles stressed. Yemen is Obama's war - using Saudis and other regional rogue states as US proxies.

Six weeks of terror-bombing achieved nothing strategically. Nor have thousands of imported takfiri terrorists been able to challenge Houthi rebels effectively.

US/Saudi Proposed 5-Day Ceasefire in Yemen: Hold the Cheers

May 8th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

On Thursday, John Kerry met his Saudi counterpart in high crimes against peace Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in Riyadh.

They proposed what they called a 5-day humanitarian pause after weeks of US-orchestrated/Saudi-led terror-bombing - including against civilian neighborhoods, refugee camps, schools, hospitals, food storage areas, power facilities and other vital infrastructure.

Their proposal combines PR duplicity with strings. It requires Houthis to lay down their arms and stop fighting.

US/Saudi Illegal Blockade Compounds Naked Aggression Against Yemen

May 6th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

No nation may attack another except in self-defense - only if authorized by Security Council members.

Obama's war on Yemen is naked aggression by any standard. No Security Council authorization exists.

Nor will any be forthcoming post-facto - or any other justification for waging war on a country threatening no others using Saudi-led proxies to do Washington's dirty work.

So it can regain control of a former client state - no matter how many millions of lives potentially are at risk.

Blockading Yemen's borders and airspace compounds America's lawless aggression. Riyadh would never attack Yemen on its own, or any other Arab country without US involvement or permission.

Saudis Terror-Bomb Sanaa Runway to Block Humanitarian Aid for Yemen

April 30th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

On Wednesday, Iran's Foreign Ministry blasted Riyadh's "vindictive and inhumane" terror-bombing of Sanaa International Airport's runway - to block Iranian humanitarian aid from arriving.

Orders to do so came from Washington. A previous article said Obama wants Yemenis starved to death or dying from unavailable medical treatment for serious terror-bombing inflicted wounds.

A Saudi spokesman called Sanaa's runway inoperable. Brig. General Ahmed Asseri said Tehran's cargo plane didn't coordinate with Riyadh and ignored warnings to turn back.

US/Saudi Recruited Terrorists in Yemen

April 29th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Obama's genocidal war against 25 million Yemenis continues without mercy. US-sponsored cold-blooded murder claims scores of lives daily.

Noncombatant men, women and children are harmed most. Endless conflict persists - now involving US/Saudi recruited, funded, armed, trained and directed takfiri terrorists.

Islamic State fighters posted a video online announcing their presence - threatening to "cut the throats" of Ansarullah Houthi rebels.

It showed about two dozen heavily armed IS fighters preparing for combat. Their commander planted a black flag in the ground saying "soldiers of the caliphate (have arrived to) to cut the throats" of the Houthis.

"We have come to Yemen, with men hungry for your blood to avenge the Sunnis and take back the land they have occupied," he said.

Russia 1,700 - America Zero: Number of Foreign Nationals Evacuated from Yemen

April 28th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

What do you call a nation going all-out to help desperate foreign nationals trapped in war zone hell: heroic and honorable by any standard! Led by a president and other officials valuing human life and welfare!

What do you call one refusing to help its own trapped nationals in a war of aggression it planned and implemented, using proxy killers to do its dirty work: guilty of the supreme high crime against peace! Disdainful of human life and welfare! A ruthless rogue state!

In early April, the State Department said "there are no plans for a US government-coordinated evacuation of US citizens at this time."

Saudis Resume Terror-Bombing Yemen

April 27th, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Saudis operate like America and Israel. They say one thing. They do another. They represent pure evil. After Wednesday's announced end to terror-bombing, Saudis resumed it on Thursday. It didn't surprise. Rogue states operate this way. Saudi despotism ranks with the world's worst. State terror is official policy - at home and in international relations.

Riyadh's so-called political solution involves continued terror-war on 25 million Yemenis.

Reports indicate airstrikes targeted Taiz in Yemen's southwest. Fighting continues in other areas - notably in the southern port city of Aden.

Saudi Blood Money for Bloodletting in Yemen

April 21st, 2015

by Stephen Lendman

Saudi King Salman

UN officials appealed for an immediate $274 million in desperately needed emergency humanitarian aid for Yemenis.

Saudi mass murderer/King Salman offered to contribute the entire amount - while he continues daily terror-bombing, targeting civilians and exacerbating a horrific humanitarian crisis.

Billions of dollars in aid are needed to address it. A small fraction of it barely scratches the surface.

Saudi oil wealth won't restore lost lives. It won't replace lost limbs. It won't soothe traumatized children.

It won't erase the agony of lost loved ones. It won't stop US planned, orchestrated and directed Saudi-led aggression.
