US, Russia & Syria: The Problem With Faking It

Yes, the US and Israelis, have been “faking it” in Syria for a good long time now. And Putin has come along and called their bluff. –

“Moderate Terrorists”. Deconstructing the NATO Narrative on Syria. “Leftists” Keep the Myth Alive

Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Avaaz, Moveon, and lesser-known, newly-created groups like The Syria Campaign, The White Helmets, and Action Group for Palestinians in Syria, are complicit in war-propagandizing and even calling for a (Libya 2.0) no-fly-zone bombing campaign of Syria.

On HRW, geopolitical analyst Eric Draitser noted:

Human Rights Watch is undeniably an appendage of US foreign policy. It is in many ways part of the ‘soft power’ arm of US power projection, a means of delegitimizing, demonizing, and otherwise destabilizing countries that do not play ball with the US…

Vigilant Twitter users have called out HRW’s lying Ken Roth for tweeting a photo he claimed to be Aleppo’s destruction from “barrel bombs” but which was, in fact, Ayn al-Arab (Kobani) post-Da’esh attacks and US-coalition bombs. In another outrageous case, Roth tweeted a video of the flattened al-Shuja’iyya neighborhood of Gaza, devastated by Israeli bombing in 2014, purporting it to be Aleppo.

The overwhelming rush of bewilderment clouds any intellectual discourse I could bring to the topic of Saudi Arabia. I have exasperated myself on the subject to a manipulated mass of deafened sycophants. Just because the veil is lifted doesn’t mean anyone will look.

So I will leave you with strictly the facts.

According to state-run Makkah Newspaper in Saudi Arabia, the wealthy Gulf-nation is threatening its citizens with the death penalty for spreading rumors about the government on social media.

An anonymous source within the Ministry of Justice stated only the worst “rumour-mongers” will be sentenced to death, while lesser offenders of the new policy will be disciplined with flogging, imprisonment, travel bans, house arrest, fines and social media bans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet... this is the company the US government keeps; a government which routinely executes its own citizens for having the temerity to possibly speak the truth about the harsh conditions under which their people live, and the reality that the Saudi people have absolutely zero control whatsoever about the future of their country.

I have a feeling that social media is going to get very much more covert for Saudi Arabia's youth, and that they will find ways of communicating which will be out the purview of the Saudi government.

All this is happening when the Saudi King Salman has, according to, been snatched away from the palace and put into hospital, under heavy sedation. It reports:

Saudi Arabia, which is currently invading Yemen and funding terrorist groups fighting in Syria, might soon be engulfed in a power struggle of its own: Informed sources told Arabic-language al-Ahd news agency that King Salman is now in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) section of King Faisal Specialist Hospital in the Saudi capital. The sources also said that given the Saudi king's unstable and aggravating health conditions, officials have ceased plans to transfer him to US hospitals. King Salman, 80, is thought to have Alzheimer’s or dementia and the government is practically administered by his Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef. The news comes just days after a senior Saudi prince called for the king to step down.

It appears that a quiet palace coup is underway; what effect that will have on US/Saudi relations is yet to be seen.

The Debate - Israel Saudi Bond (October 11th)

Terror and terrorists have become words that unfortunately we hear on a daily basis. Whether it is Palestine or Yemen, we continue to witness acts of terrorism.

Now as the Saudi onslaught on Yemen has been going on for six and a half months, and almost 6500 people are dead, the question is when does the international community label terrorists as terrorists? When is terror enough? And who will pay for all of this terror?

Yemeni Forces Drown another Saudi-Led Coalition Warship

Yemeni army and Ansarullah revolutionary forces fired rockets at a Saudi-led coalition warship and destroyed it near al-Mukha coast in the Yemeni province of Ta'iz.

Informed sources also said on Saturday that the warship named "al-Mahrousa" belonged to the Egyptian army.

On Thursday, Yemeni army and popular forces also fired missiles at a Saudi warship, and destroyed it in Bab al-Mandab Strait.

The warship was wrecked off the Southwestern coast of Yemen, in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, which connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden.

“The New Middle East”: Russian Style

The entire Mideast was aware of the Russian-Saudi discussions, and now that Russia has assembled the COR and is directly fighting terrorism in the region, the Saudi’s proxy forces such as the “Army of Conquest” must now be asking themselves why their patron abandoned them as sitting ducks on the battlefield. It’s not realistically thought that Russia informed the Saudis in any way whatsoever of their coming military campaign, but for the Islamists on the ground being killed by Russian airstrikes, it sure seems like a possibility, and they may be seething with anger against the Saudis for being set up. Already, over 3,000 terrorists have already fled Syria for Jordan, likely en route back to Saudi Arabia, and the Kingdom’s security establishment must surely be aware of the threat this entails. Couple the returning jihadis with the homegrown ISIL terrorists that already struck in the country before, and a cocktail of domestic disaster is being mixed before the Saudis’ own eyes, and their military establishment is too bogged down along the Yemeni border to adequately focus on it.

The Six Most Disastrous Interventions of the 21st Century

by Gary Leupp
On October 2 President Barack Obama, alluding to Russia’s decision to launch air strikes in Syria, told reporters at the White House that for Russia to view the forces targeted “from the perspective they’re all terrorists [is] a recipe for disaster, and it’s one that I reject.”

1 Afghanistan

The first was the disaster of the invasion of Afghanistan beginning in October 2001. I’m not sure we should call it a “crime,” since the international coalition that invaded was authorized by a UN resolution, or a “mistake” since it was clearly the result of calculation.

Putin’s “Endgame” in Syria

Putin doesn’t distinguish between the “moderate” terrorists and the “radical” terrorists, the good terrorists and the bad terrorists. It’s a joke. They’re all in the same pool and they’re all going to meet the same fate. They all have to be rooted out, apprehended or killed. End of story.

The Saker: Week one of the Russian military intervention in Syria

As I have written in a recent column , the notion that Russia has established a no-fly zone over Syria is plain false: four SU-30MS, even if backed by six SU-34s are not enough to establish any kind of no-fly zone. The real mission of these SU-30MSs is to protect the Russian Air Force from any overzealous Turkish or Israeli fighter, not to establish a no-fly zone. In fact, according to the commander of the USAF operation over Syria, the US flies many more sorties than the Russians. What he does not add is that most of these US sorties do not include the release of weapons whereas all the Russian ones do. But, really, this is comparing apples and oranges. The USAF can fly as many sorties as it wants, only the Russian aircraft are operating in close coordination with Syrian and Iranian ground forces.

What worries me most is that people on both sides like to engage in cheap bravado and say things like “the Americans/Russians would never dare to attack a Russian/American aircraft”. This is a very dangerous way of thinking about what is going on because it ignores all the historical evidence for decision-makers taking very dumb decisions to try to avoid appearing humiliated by the other side (Ehud Olmert in 2006, immediately comes to mind). The fact that Obama and the USA look totally out-smarted is nice, of course, but also potentially very dangerous.

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

Remember that Saudi Arabia was being framed for 9-11 right from the start. One of the accused hijackers, a Saudi Pilot named Saeed Al-Ghamdi, was still alive after 9-11 and sued the US Government for defaming him.

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Which is why we know that the claim that Saudi Arabia was behind 9-11 has no more basis in fact than the claim that Saddam had nuclear weapons or that Assad gassed his own people right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently certain parties (including the independent media) are once again pushing the claim that Saudi Arabia was behind 9-11, based on the much wagged classified 28 pages from the 9-11 report.

NATO: Crazed and Dangerous

Precisely why Russian action against Saudi Arabia’s proxy militias of fanatics is against western interests is something which nobody in the western elite seems to believe it is necessary to explain. That Russia is bad and evil and must be opposed is another one of those axiomatic beliefs of the governing elite, which they can’t bring themselves to believe the public do not wholeheartedly share. Equally they cannot quite understand why we the people do not see the necessity of backing the Saudi regime.

I am a stern critic of Russia’s democratic deficit, human rights record, and gangster dominated economy and government. But on all these counts it is still a thousand times better than Saudi Arabia, and I am quite certain that 99% of Europeans would be happier living in St Petersburg than Riyadh.

If the Russians turn back CIA and Saudi-backed rebels I for one shall be delighted.

Saudi Arabia just replenished Syrian rebels with one of the most effective weapons against the Assad regime

The FSA is currently being squeezed from all directions by the Syrian military, Russian airstrikes, and competition from jihadist fighters including ISIS.

The delivery of the TOW missiles — which have also been provided by the CIA — will increase the capabilities of the FSA against Syrian armor and it would enable them to more effectively battle against Assad's recent military advances.

"Five hundred TOWs is not an inconsequential number," Jeffrey White, a defense fellow at The Washington Institute, told Business Insider.

Shock and Awe in Syria

Syrian Human Rights Observatory reports a dozen Saudi officers killed outside Homs!
The Syrian army fought heavy battles with insurgents for control of a hilltop in a mountainous range close to Leticia’s coastal heartland, local and witnesses says.
The fighting was centered around Jub al Ahmar, a highland area in Latakia province which would allow the army to more effectively pound rebel positions in the nearby Ghab Plain, said Rami Abdulrahman, the head of the discredited London Based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, believed to be a CIA front tied to al Qaeda.
Webmaster addition: The Syrian Human Rights Observatory is run by just one guy out of a two-bedroom house in Coventry, England. He has not even been in Syria for the last 15 years. In other words, like SITE, or MEMRI, the Syrian Human Rights Observatory is a manufactured propaganda front.

Flynn confirms that not only had he studied the Defense Intelligence Agency memo predicting the West’s backing of an Islamic State in Syria when it came across his desk in 2012, but even asserts that the White House’s sponsoring of radical jihadists (that would emerge as ISIL and Nusra) against the Syrian regime was “a willful decision.”

America Pivots to Brzezinski’s Delusion of Eurasian Conquest

Russia historian Stephen Cohen points to the neoconservative establishment for America's latest outbreak of what can only be referred to as late-stage imperial dementia. Neocons Robert Kagan and wife Victoria Nuland have certainly done the heavy lifting to make Ukraine the staging ground for what appears to be a NATO blitzkrieg on Moscow. But whatever the determination of the neocon plot, they are only the barking dogs of master imperialist Zbigniew Brzezinski, whose grand design has been creeping over the globe since he stepped into the Oval office as National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter in 1977.

The World's Silliest Empire

The next silly moment arrived at the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, where Obama, who went on for 30 minutes instead of the allotted 15 (does Mr. Silly President know how to read a clock?) managed to use up all of this time and say absolutely nothing that made any sense to anyone.

But it was Putin's speech that laid out the Empire's silliness for all to see when he scolded the US for making a bloody mess of the Middle East with its ham-handed interventions. The oft-repeated quote is “Do you understand what you have done?” but that's not quite right. The Russian «?? ???? ????????? ??????, ???? ?? ??????????» can be more accurately translated as “How can you even now fail to understand what a mess you have made?” Words matter: this is not how one talks to a superpower before an assembly of the world's leaders; this is how one scolds a stupid and wayward child. In the eyes of the whole world, this made the Empire look rather silly.

Top US officials act silly when asked about Saudi bombing of Yemen

The US administration shows no interest in how US allies handle issues related to human rights. Mark Krieger write in an article for Liberty Blitzkrieg that top US officials either lie or act silly when asked about the conflict of Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney smiled and repeatedly said, "Nice to see you," when Krueger asked him he had any concerns about the Saudi Arabian-led bombing campaign in Yemen. Romney repeated this remark several times, instead of giving a clear answer to the question, thus prompting the journalist wonder whether it was a joke or not, reports. US Senator John McCain has spoken a lot about Yemen lately, but his words do not seem to match the reality. "They may be bombing civilians, which is actually not true," McCain said, when asked about civilian casualties in Yemen. The journalist asked McCain whether civilians were not dying in Yemen, to which McCain replied: "No, they're not," the senator replied.

We Aren't Nearly As Worried About The Middle East As We should Be

What's the opposite of a gift that keeps on giving? A mistake that keeps metastasizing.

Which pretty much sums up the US role in the Middle East. Beginning with the CIA's 1953 overthrow of Iran's democratically elected president and continuing through the multiple regime changes and invasions of recent years, various American governments have behaved like they both understood that region and had the power to mold it into a docile client that pumped oil, suppressed dissent and otherwise caused no trouble.

Instead, each intervention turned up the heat on an already-boiling pot of corruption, sectarian rivalry and geopolitical anger that has finally erupted into regional civil war. The whole world, at long last, understands that the situation is beyond both US understanding and control.

And that's the good news.

Nikolay Bogdanovsky, accompanied by a large military delegation, arrives in Israel for a two-day visit on Tuesday, Oct. 6, to discuss increased coordination between the two militaries.

If US President Obama truly wanted to deal effectively with Moscow’s military moves in Syria, besides saying that Russia is bound to fail, he would have ordered the deployment of US stealth fighters to Turkey and Israel.

Saudi Arabia Continues Hiring Spree of American Lobbyists, Public Relations Experts

Saudi Arabia is in the market for a better reputation in Washington, D.C.

In September alone, foreign lobbying disclosure documents show the Saudi government signing deals with PR powerhouse Edelman and lobbying leviathan the Podesta Group, according to recent disclosures.

Edelman, the largest privately owned public relations agency in the world, is known for helping clients win favorable media coverage on mainstream outlets. The Podesta Group is a lobbying firm founded by Tony Podesta, a major fundraiser for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

The new signings are the latest in a year-long hiring spree by the Persian Gulf state as it further builds up its already formidable political arsenal inside the Beltway. The Saudi Arabian Royal Embassy did not respond to a request for comment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Saudi Government and the House of Saud; no amount of PR in the world is going to turn world focus away from the crucifixions, beheadings, amputations, and suppression of women which your government indulges in the name of " promoting stability"

And earlier this year, was not the Saudi government "short" on executioners who could behead?!? (pun intended).

IF the world saw that the standard of living was going up for the poorest of your poor; if the world saw some modicum of compassion in your treatment of political dissidents and women; if the world saw that the people of your country had at least a tiny, fractional voice as to the future of your country, then perhaps the expenditures on PR would not be quite as desperately necessary for you.

Trouble in Kingdom: Saudis Face Problems as Oil Wealth Shrinks

The oil market has dramatically changed since last summer due to oversupply in the market. In November 2014, OPEC decided to keep its oil output levels unchanged, which led to a further slump in crude oil prices.

The low oil prices forced the Saudi Kingdom to burn through their foreign reserves at an unprecedented pace. In addition to a Saudi-led airstrike campaign in Yemen, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud was pretty generous toward government workers, putting a further strain on public finances that were already damaged by the slump in oil prices.

FLASHBACK: British SAS Special Forces “Dressed Up as ISIS Rebels” Fighting Assad in Syria

On August 2, Britain’s Sunday Express newspaper headlined “SAS dress as ISIS fighters in undercover war on jihadis,” saying:

“More than 120 members belonging to the elite regiment are currently in the war-torn country” covertly “dressed in black and flying ISIS flags,” engaged in what’s called Operation Shader – attacking Syrian targets on the pretext of combatting ISIS.

Maybe covert US special forces and CIA elements are involved the same way. During Obama’s war on Libya, Britain deployed hundreds of Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) paratroopers – drawn from SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) personnel.

Around 800 Royal Marines and 4,000 US counterparts were on standby to intervene on short notice if ordered.

How The US Helped To Create Al Qaeda and ISIS

by Garikai Chengu

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980?s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.

Just in case you’re still confused as to why the Middle East is a flaming cauldron of death, destruction and chaos, Lee Fang provides you with some insightful observations from the self-proclaimed “leaders of the free world.”

From the Intercept:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US-enabled Saudi slaughter in Yemen is a proxy war against the Yemenite people, who had the gall to depose their US-sponsored puppet, Mansour Al-Hadi. And please remember; in the last election in Yemen, Al-Hadi's name was the only name on the ballot. "Democracy in action", right?!?

Now, let's talk about the wedding party assassinations, shall we?!? Is it not the US government and military giving the Saudis strike coordinates and intelligence for their airstrikes?!? What in the name of Heaven would cause the US government to want to have members of a wedding party extrajudicially assassinated?!?

A great PR triumph, that, Pentagon: way to go!!

And the upcoming crucifixion of the political dissident; does Obama secretly dream of being able to do this, right here in the United States?!? Maybe broadcast it on pay-per-view?!?

I would like to remind this administration that geopolitically, one is judged by the company one keeps. And the "company" of Saudi Arabia is company with one of the most blood-lust soaked, anti-democratic, repressive regimes on this planet.

This proxy war against Yemen may not go well; the country has been all but completely destroyed by the bombing of its entire infrastructure; schools, hospitals, commercial buildings, and houses.

That moment when a person has nothing left but their lives, and those lives do not seem be worth one heck of a lot, is the moment when the embracing of radicalism can become very attractive.

The late President John Kennedy said it best; "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

This is stark reality which both the House of Saud and the US government need to consider right now. Their collective actions have made a potentially negotiated settlement in the country virtually impossible.

The Real “Blowback” in Syria

snip: According to Al-Masdar Al-‘Arabi, a high-ranking Syrian army official has confirmed to the news site that Chinese involvement in the Syrian conflict is here: “the Chinese will be arriving in the coming weeks.” This follows a week of speculation piqued by the apparent deployment of a Chinese cruiser to the Mediterranean that Russian Senator Igor Morozov has asserted is taking part in Russia’s Syrian operations.

If these reports are true, then there is a significant shift taking place in the Syria narrative, long dominated by the West, the Gulf states, the Israelis, the Turks and their puppet organizations in the country. We are now witnessing the rise of a power bloc that contains the second and third largest militaries on the planet as well as the active cooperation of the governments actually effected by the ISIS invasion. That brings with it a legitimacy that the US and GCC could only wish for in the conflict.

"They're Hopping Mad In The US And Saudi Arabia": Russian Strikes In Syria Spark Epic Western Media Propaganda Blitz

In any event, the important thing here is to cut through all of this and extract the bits that help to tell the story of what's actually taking place in Syria. As we detailed on Thursday, this is effectively a Mid-East coup by Russia and Iran wherein Tehran will replace Riyadh as the regional power broker and Moscow will supplant Washington as the superpower puppet master.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me is how far the US, Saudi, ( and, regrettably omitted from this article), the Israeli governments will go to prevent this from happening.

It is unfortunate that the peace of the world depends of the head-space of its most psychopathic leader; and right now, Israel's uber-hubristic Benyamin Netanyahu holds that dubious geopolitical distinction.

Tel Aviv is already conjuring imaginary Iranian troops at the Golan border as the potential "excuse" for an invasion of Syria.

Its newspapers have spoken, breathlessly, of the IDF having to move its northern borders "eastward", to, allegedly, protect the people there.

But looking at a map of the region, if they are not claiming land in the Mediterranean sea, we are looking at a potential invasion of Lebanon, as this is the only country bordering Israel on its east.

And, of course, the US government desperately needs a world war to mask an economy in ruin, and blame the war for the collapsed economy.

So, we have a convergence of events and agendas, which may well lead to a regional war, if not a world war.

And as we have said numerous times, please don't panic; prepare.

You know what you need to do (long storing food, potable water, medications for family and pets), and a plan for either fortifying your home, and/or creating an intelligently assembled bug-out kit.

But of one thing I can assure you; if you haven't already done this, the time is now to make this happen.

Preparation, and planning, never hurts, and if the excrement hits the ventilation shaft, chances are you will survive.

FLASHBACK: General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years

Lest we forget!

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said, "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"

In a U-turn at the United Nations Human Rights Council, Western governments dropped plans Wednesday for an international inquiry into human rights violations by all parties in the war in Yemen that has killed thousands of civilians in the last six months.

The change of direction came as the Netherlands withdrew the draft of a resolution it had prepared with support from a group of mainly Western countries that instructed the United Nations high commissioner for human rights to send experts to Yemen to investigate the conduct of the war.

That proposal was a follow-up to recommendations by the commissioner, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, who detailed in a report this month the heavy civilian loss of life inflicted not only by the relentless airstrikes of the military coalition led by Saudi Arabia but also by the indiscriminate shelling carried out by Houthi rebels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Once again, the UN has proven itself the ugly and irrelevant stepchild of US foreign policy, where the US-enabled, Saudi slaughter of Yemenite civilians continues unabated.

This is the US and UN's message to the world; if you are looking at throwing out a western-backed thug, who does nothing for you or your country except extort its wealth and suppress the democratic process, be prepared for military collective punishment of your civilian population designed to beat you into submission, and into taking back the demagogue you kicked out in the first place.

I am thoroughly disgusted and chagrined that such an institution is allowed to describe itself as the arbiter for freedom, democracy, and human rights.

Mid-East Coup: As Russia Pounds Militant Targets, Iran Readies Ground Invasions While Saudis Panic

Back in June, the commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qasem Soleimaini, visited a town north of Latakia on the frontlines of Syria’s protracted civil war. Following that visit, he promised that Tehran and Damascus were set to unveil a new strategy that would “surprise the world.”

Just a little over a month later, Soleimani - in violation of a UN travel ban - visited Russia and held meetings with The Kremlin. The Pentagon now says those meetings were “very important” in accelerating the timetable for Russia’s involvement in Syria. The General allegedly made another visit to Moscow in September.

The timeline here is no coincidence. Iran has long provided covert and overt support to the Assad regime via financial transfers, logistical support from the Quds, and via the involvement of Hezbollah in the Assad government’s fight to regain control of the country.

10 Reasons to Oppose the Saudi Monarchy

The cozy US relationship with the Saudis has to do with oil, weapons sales and joint opposition to Iran.

In a special interview with Haaretz, to be broadcast during the upcoming Second Haaretz Peace Conference on November 12 in Tel Aviv, Turki said that such a move would “remove the doubts and suspicions on the Arab side.”

Ten Reasons to Oppose the Saudi Monarchy

During the discussion on the Iran nuclear deal, it has been strange to hear US politicians fiercely condemn Iranian human rights abuses while remaining silent about worse abuses by US ally Saudi Arabia. Not only is the Saudi regime repressive at home and abroad, but US weapons and US support for the regime make Americans complicit. So let’s look at the regime the US government counts as its close friend.

Saudi-led aerial campaign leaves bloody stalemate in Yemen

“Going After” the Islamic State. Guess Who is Behind the Caliphate Project?

Author’s note and Update

The following article was first published in September 2014 at the outset of the air campaign “against the ISIS”. In recent developments Russia has officially joined the campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS). What are the implications?

Amply documented but rarely mentioned in news reports, the ISIS is a creation of US intelligence, recruited, trained and financed by the US and its allies including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Israel and Jordan.

What this means is that the ISIS terrorists are the foot soldiers of the Western alliance. While America claims to be targeting the ISIS, in reality it is protecting the ISIS. The air campaign is intent upon destroying Syria and Iraq rather than “going after the terrorists”.

But now Russia is involved in the campaign against the ISIS in coordination with the Syrian and Iraqi governments.

The Glaring Omission in Obama’s U.N. Speech

This is one of the latest crimes committed by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen:

Airstrikes by a Saudi Arabia-led military coalition killed at least 70 people early Monday at a wedding celebration in a village on Yemen’s Red Sea coast, according to two local officials.

The aerial attack in Wahija, south of the port city of Mokha, was at least the third in the last 10 days in which large numbers of civilians were killed by Saudi-led coalition forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except for the P5+1 Agreement (which Israeli is furiously attempting to derail), The Obama Administration has created one foreign policy epic fail after another, and the US involvement in Yemen, aiding and abetting the collective punishment to people who threw out their western-backed puppet, is yet another one of the Administration's ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid reactions to a situation it could well have prevented from happening.

I am quite sure that if I had a chance to talk to anyone from Yemen about the last "alleged election", they would recall that the ballot had only one name on it; that of Al-Hadi.

The late President Kennedy said it best; "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

To have not used US foreign aid both as a carrot and a stick in this case, so that the Yemenite people had at least something to hold on to, in terms of life potentially getting better for them under Al-Hadi, was a completely lamentable failure of imagination on the part of this administration.

Sometimes, it appears that the biggest prerequisite for working for the US government is a near-pathological inability to see any scenario through to its logical conclusion.

WikiLeaks cables implicate UK & Saudi Arabia in secret deal to secure UNHRC seats

Two years after the controversial appointment of Saudi Arabia, one of the world’s leading human rights offenders, to the UN human rights council, Wikileaks cables have revealed a “secret deal” suggesting that the British government was a key player behind Riyadh’s nomination.

Sep 30 08:33


Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has rejected a Russian overture to end the conflict in Syria and said Bashar al-Assad must step down immediately or face what he called the “military option.”

He did not provide details on a military option, but noted the Saudis are supporting “moderate rebels” in Syria.

It is now well established there are virtually no moderate rebels in Syria and the opposition fighting against the government is comprised entirely of Sunni jihadists, most notably al-Nusra and the Islamic State.

Despite this, al-Jubeir insisted there “is a Free Syrian Army that is fighting against Bashar al-Assad” and it receives “support from a number of countries.”

“And we expect that this support will continue and intensify.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully obvious that Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir did not get the memo about Russian military action in Syria against Isis.

Putin is going to crush any remnants of Isis like bugs.

And my bet would be on a very swift, well-coordinated series of attacks which will actually do the trick here.

I would like to hope that Al-Jubeir is not thinking, remotely, of tackling Russia head on in this regard; it could, potentially, lead to a complete, utter military catastrophe for the House of Saud.

The announcement was made a day after tribal fighters backed by the coalition won control of a strategic dam in central Yemen from Houthi forces following weeks of fighting in the area east of the capital Sanaa.

The Yemen Catastrophe: Beset by Contradictions of Will and Intellect

Any attempt to provide a coherent account of the political strife afflicting Yemen is bound to fail. The country is crucible of contradictions that defy normal categories of rational analysis. If we look beyond the political fog that envelops the conflict the tragic circumstances of acute suffering imposed on the civilian population do emerge with stark clarity. Long before the outbreak of civil warfare, Yemen was known to be the poorest country in the region, faced with looming food and water scarcities. The UN estimates 80% of the population is in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, 40% live on less than $2 per day. Further there are high risks of mass famine and epidemic outbreaks of disease will occur, while continuing chaos is a near certainty, with the prospect of yet another wave of desperate migrants swept ashore in Europe.

Saudi Arabia calls on Assad to leave or be removed by force

Saudi Arabia says Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must leave office or face being removed via military intervention.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir made the remarks at the UN general assembly in New York on Tuesday following a meeting with his country’s allies.

“There is no future for Assad in Syria,” Jubeir said. “There are two options for a settlement in Syria. One option is a political process where there would be a transitional council. The other option is a military option, which also would end with the removal of Bashar al-Assad from power.”

He noted that a military option would be a lengthier and more destructive process, but the “choice is entirely that of Bashar al-Assad.”

The censored 28 page report on 9/11 - 28 pages of misdirection?

The Truth movement has gradually been gaining a foothold with the public; a growing number of people countenance some kind of government role in 9/11 and/or its cover-up. Suspicion has likewise grown about the role played by Bush-administration neocons and their Zionist bedfellows. After 15 years of staunch media refusal to report the flagrantly obvious holes in the various OCT stories we’ve been fed, why is this particular issue suddenly headline news? Why at this particular juncture? And how does it just happen to be spearheaded by one of the major contributors to the initial coverup?

Let’s examine the question of why the Deep State might want this story heated up to a fever pitch:

Saudi Prince Calls For Royal Coup

To recap, the necessity of preserving the status quo for everyday Saudis combined with funding two regional proxy wars while simultaneously defending the riyal peg isn’t exactly compatible with intentionally suppressing crude prices in an effort to outlast ZIRP and bankrupt the US shale complex. The difficulty of balancing all of this has created a current account/fiscal account outcome that makes Brazil look quite favorable by comparison and it has also forced the Saudis into the debt markets, suggesting that the kingdom’s debt-to-GDP ratio is set to rise sharply by the end of 2016 (although it would of course still look favorable by comparison in even the worst case scenarios).

Thrown in a catastrophic crane collapse at Mecca and an incredibly horrific hajj stampede (followed by some epic trolling out of Tehran) and you have a recipe for social upheaval.

Neocon Jeffrey Feltman Visits Libya Brandishing The Dahiyeh Doctrine and “The New Realities”

The “Dahiyeh Doctrine”

Libyan civilians have learned a thing or two from three decades of Lebanon’s experience with Israel’s five wars against that Levant country. Indeed NATO is using the same bombing, media, political and diplomatic strategy in Libya that Israel employed most recently in Lebanon during its 33-day July, 2006 war.

This includes bombing of the Libyan civilian infrastructure in order to cripple normal life here and hopefully crush the growing national Resistance among Libyans to NATO’s 15,300 sorties to date, while teaching the people an overdue lesson for supporting the central government in the context of predictable “birth pangs of the new Libya.”

Saudi Arabia sheds Western shares

The Saudi Arabia reduces exterior investment. Given the fall of oil prices, the Saudis withdraw assets, worth dozens of billions dollars, from investment funds. Authorities of the country intent to reduce the budget deficit in such a way, as well as lower possible risks at stock exchanges. In order to compensate rapid reduce of reserves, the Saudi Arabia Central Bank asked the banks to fund the bonds program. Since the third quarter of 2014, foreign reserves of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency have dropped by almost $73 billion. At the same time, the state needs money to support the economy and fund military campaign in Yemen. The Monetary Agency of the Saudis stated about net outflow from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Financiers from different countries call this organization, which has overgrown with a wide range of agencies on assets management, to be an operator of the biggest quantity of the Saudi Arabia's funds.

Op Nimr: Anonymous targets Saudi websites as teen awaits crucifixion for ‘anti-govt activities’

Hacktivist group Anonymous has called out Saudi Arabia for its horrific human rights record by attacking the Gulf kingdom’s government websites. The attack is in response to the upholding of a death sentence handed down to 17-year-old Mohammed al-Nimr.

Earlier in September, Nimr’s final appeal to the Saudi courts was dismissed, and his sentence of death by crucifixion for alleged anti-government activities in 2012 can now be carried out at any moment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me get this straight: The Saudi Government Representative, Faisal Trad, has just been elected to the Human Rights Chair at the UN?!?

I hope video of this crucifixion goes viral, in terms of condemning the absolute, vile,stenchful hypocrisy of both the US government, and the UN, in terms of making this appointment.

What such a video will prove, and document, is the absolute absence of respect for human rights, democracy, human dignity, and political dialogue which is the UN's method of operation; and when these values get in the way of doing business as usual, people are assassinated with extreme prejudice, as is about to happen in Saudi Arabia.

And I would strongly commend to UN Human Rights Representative Trad a film called "V for Vendetta", released in 2006; I am sure some Arabic-language versions exist, although I seriously doubt you can see it in Riyad.

But it is a very interesting, and graphic, examination of the ultimate end of government over-reach; ANY government over-reach, and Human Rights Chair Trad does need to see this, all the way through.

Following Crane Collapse and Fire, Now More than 700 People Dead at Mecca Stampede

While the Pope was busy addressing Congress here in the U.S., some 717 people have been pronounced dead after a stampede at the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. Nearly 900 more pilgrims were injured.

Many of the victims were crushed and trampled to death as they were on their way to perform a symbolic stoning of the devil by throwing pebbles against three stone columns in Mina, a large valley about five kilometres from Mecca that has been the site of hajj stampedes in past years. (source)

This comes just days after two other dangerous and deadly incidents at Mecca. On September 21, a pre-dawn fire broke out at a 15-story hotel at Mecca caused 1500 people to flee, luckily only causing four injuries and no deaths. The fire was later attributed to a short circuit in one of the rooms.

The CSTO arrives in Iraq and Syria

by Thierry Meyssan

The intervention of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organisation) against terrorism in Iraq and Syria may be the beginning of a world order based on the cooperation and defence of civilian populations, or, on the contrary, a period of East-West confrontation in which the West openly supports terrorism. Contrary to popular belief, this military deployment is aimed less at defending Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic than the members of the CSTO themselves. It is therefore not negotiable. The debates in the UNO General Assembly and Security Council on the 30th September will reveal the response of Washinton and its allies. In any case, nothing will ever be the same.

Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton's State Department

Israeli officials were agitated, reportedly complaining to the Obama administration that this substantial enhancement to Saudi air power risked disrupting the region's fragile balance of power. The deal appeared to collide with the State Department’s documented concerns about the repressive policies of the Saudi royal family.

But now, in late 2011, Hillary Clinton’s State Department was formally clearing the sale, asserting that it was in the national interest. At a press conference in Washington to announce the department’s approval, an assistant secretary of state, Andrew Shapiro, declared that the deal had been “a top priority” for Clinton personally. Shapiro, a longtime aide to Clinton since her Senate days, added that the “U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army have excellent relationships in Saudi Arabia.”

The government’s ongoing drone strikes in Yemen are little-known to the general American public. Many Americans still believe the U.S. military is only involved in Iraq and Afghanistan. In reality, the military is running offensive operations in Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries in the region.

Low Oil Hitting Saudi Arabia Hard

There’s a couple of tidbits out today about Saudi Arabia. First up, its reserves continue to shrink. The IMF projects that Saudi Arabia’s budget deficit will exceed 400 billion riyals ($107 billion) this year as lower oil revenues hurt the economy. Oil generally accounts for 90% of government revenue, whereas this year it will only account for 81%. Given this turn for the worse, the government may assess removing subsidies on gasoline, which currently costs 16 cents per liter, while a shift towards renewables may also be considered.
Secondly, Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company, Saudi Aramco, has confirmed that the acting president and chief executive, Amin H. Nasser, will assume these positions on a permanent basis. And in a final OPEC-related tidbit, an internal report from the cartel projects oil prices rising at a steady $5 per annum, to reach $80 by 2020.

The Implosion of US Military Morale

WE are being set up for a major defeat and destruction!

By Jack D. Douglas

September 21, 2015

Col.David “Hack” Hackworth said decades ago that the Perfumed Princes of the Pentagon got control of the Army and other U.S. forces during the long Vietnam catastrophe, destroyed morale, lost the war, and kept moving up to the top to be the staff generals and admirals in the Pentagon. The scuttlebutt was always that they managed their way up by being ass-kissers.

Saudi Arabia has 100,000 empty, air-conditioned tents sitting unused while thousands of Syrian refugees continue to bake in overcrowded camps, but refuses to make them available. The news site TeleSur reports that the 20-square-km tent city of Mina is used just a few days a year to provide beds for Hajj pilgrims and sits empty the rest of the year. It says the tents are laid out neatly, measure eight metres square, are fireproof, include a kitchen and bathroom, and could house three million people. According to the Brookings Institute, the wealthy Arab states of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and UAE have not taken a single refugee, while European countries struggle to deal with a flood in the hundreds of thousands.

In the political, more accurately geo-political sphere, we are now witnessing huge tectonic motion, and destructive it is not. It involves a new attractive force drawing the Middle East OPEC countries, including Saudi Arabia and Iran and other Arab OPEC countries, into what will soon become obvious as a strategic partnership with the Russian Federation. It transcends the huge religious divides today between Sunni Wahhabism, Sufi, Shi’ism, Orthodox Christianity.

That tectonic motion will soon cause a political earthquake that well might save the planet from extinction by the endless wars the Pentagon and their string pullers on Wall Street and the military industrial complex and the loveless oligarchs who own them seem to have as their only strategy today.

Devolution of Power in Syria Will Not Be Attained by Assad’s Ouster

The war in Syria is a classic proxy war. Too many states have too many proxy fighters all fighting the Syrian state and each other. Relying on non-state actors to carry out violence against the state is a dangerous and destabilizing strategy that will affect not only the target country, but other nations in the region and around the world. Violence will reach neighboring nations like Lebanon, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan and the refugee crisis will continue to affect Western countries. The war in Syria and Iraq must end in order to minimize the spread of violence and the increased number of displaced people. However, for the war to end, states party to this conflict must employ both military and political strategies concurrently—not just one or the other.

Mainstream Media Admits In Storytelling Fashion: ISIS Commander Is U.S. Trained!

Anyone getting their facts, news and information outside the spectrum of the tiny information bottleneck known as mainstream media is probably tired of hearing it by now. The Islamic State or ISIS is a terror organization created, funded and armed by the U.S. and its allies particularly Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

Bernie Sanders Again Insists That Saudi Arabia Should Kill More People

As you know, Bernie Sanders focuses on money issues, taxing the rich, spending on the poor, but has thus far been permitted to engage in the general practice of speaking only about the 46% of federal discretionary spending that it not military.

Largely off the radar in the United States, Saudi Arabia has continued its “coalition” air war against rebels in Yemen, killing more than a thousand civilians with the help of American weapons.

In addition to providing cluster bombs and other deadly ordinance, the U.S. has given the Saudis “military intelligence and logistical assistance” in attacking the Houthis, the rebel group that toppled the Yemeni government, according to The New York Times.

“The loss of civilian life in Hajja shows why most countries have made a commitment never to use cluster munitions,” said Ole Solvang, senior emergencies researcher for Human Rights Watch. “These weapons not only kill or injure people at the time of attack, but the unexploded submunitions go on killing long afterward.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This use of these weapons against civilians is a war crime, pure and simple.

U.S.-backed Forces in Yemen Escalate Airstrikes

Neighborhoods, hospitals, mosques, factories, ports and other locations were hit during the last week. Dozens of people were killed in the airstrikes which are becoming more vicious in the aftermath of the deaths of over 50 troops operating on the ground from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Since the beginning of the Saudi-GCC air war against Yemen at least 4,000 people have been killed and tens of thousands injured. Four million Yemeni people have been forced to leave their homes while humanitarian assistance is almost impossible in light of the lack of security as well as the destruction of transport facilities and ports.

A leading news story in the New York Times on Sunday September 13 exposed a war that has been largely hidden from the public view in the United States. Also the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on September 11 featured a detailed report on the bombing of a bottled water factory which the U.S.-backed forces claimed was a munitions production facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight: the US militarily-enabled Saudis are bombing Yemen because the Yemen people had the temerity to resist the Western-centric puppet Al-Saleh, who, when elected, had the only name on the ballot in Yemen?!?

I would like to politely remind the House of Saud, DC, and the UK that the bombing of civilians is a war crime, just in case they are collectively dealing with SMD (selective memory disorder.

The preparation for Russian military deployment in Syria continues

Go get em Vlad!

A campaign has been launched by the opponents of the agreement between the United States and Iran accusing Russia of intending to annex Syria by military force, as it had done in Crimea. In reality, Moscow is applying UNO resolutions and preparing an operation against the jihadists, and will go ahead with or without the consent of Washington. Already, the White House has organised a joint operation by the international Coalition and Syria. France is attempting to jump on the bandwagon, hoping at the same time to sabotage the US / Iran reconciliation.

Big Lie: U.S. Allies with Saudis ‘Because We’re Addicted to Their Oil’

In Syria and elsewhere, the U.S. allies with Saudi Arabia and other Sunni nations that back or even install ISIS and Al Qaeda Islamic jihadists, even while the U.S. wages war against those jihadists. This has puzzled some people, because the U.S. propaganda-line about the matter doesn’t make much sense.

Refugee Crisis Reminds Europe There is a Real War in Syria

Refugees are not the problem; war is. If the war in Syria doesn’t stop, the flow of refugees will only continue. The refugee wave, marked by the dramatic image of tens of thousands of Syrians trying to reach Germany from Hungary, is a phenomenon that until very recently has been confused, perhaps deliberately, with mass migration. There is an important difference: migrations are frequently driven by financial or social exclusion. What is happening now in Europe is the inevitable consequence of unresolved crises in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and Afghanistan – all related to the collapse of these countries’ respective states, the result of wars for which the West bears much responsibility.

Saudi Airstrikes Taking Heavy Toll on Yemeni Civilians

Saudi warplanes were active again over the weekend, targeting multiple cities held by the Shi’ite Houthi forces. As is so often the case in their war against Yemen, the casualties are largely civilian in nature, with at least 16 more civilians killed in attacks on Saturday alone.

The biggest of the Saturday incidents was in the contested city of Taiz, where warplanes destroyed a house, killing 10 members of the same family. Other civilians were killed in the capital city of Sanaa, and the northern city of Sadaa.

Official Washington’s new “group think” is to blame Russia’s President Putin for the Syrian crisis, although it was the neocons and President George W. Bush who started the current Mideast mess by invading Iraq, the Saudis who funded Al Qaeda, and the Israelis who plotted “regime change,” says Robert Parry.

Yemeni Army Captures Saudi Military Base in Jizan

Al Qaeda Leader Al-Zawahiri Declares War on ISIS 'Caliph' Al-Baghdadi

Just ahead of the fourteenth anniversary of al Qaeda's 9/11 attacks on the U.S., the leader of the terrorist group took aim in an angry speech at a mortal enemy -- but not American “crusaders” this time. Rather, the object of his tirade was the leader of ISIS in a declaration of war that will “irreconcilably” divide the two terror groups in a way the U.S. may be able to exploit, experts say.

Invisible War Crimes: The Corporate Media On Yemen

The propaganda version of events, summarised and promoted by the BBC’s Security Correspondent Frank Gardner, is that Saudi Arabia is waging a war against ‘a pro-Iranian rebel movement taking over their southern neighbour’, Yemen. But a major missing factor in BBC reporting, or at best passed over very quickly, is the role of the West in Yemen’s violence. Gardner only goes as far as saying that the Saudi-led coalition is ‘US-backed’. But surely there is more to be said than that? Why the lack of explanation or detail?

Watch your head climbing into that transport plane..

And we'll call whoever it is you are telling us needs to be invaded this week and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But given the very long history of the United States government and the corporate media lying and tricking us into wars, you will forgive We The People if we sit this one out and keep our children safe at home.

And just in case you are one of those poor government or media people who are not as well educated in history as the average American citizen, here is a comprehensive but by no means complete list of just how many times We The People have been made total fools of by the US Government and the corporate media.

Kerry’s Double Assisted Suicide: Russia Oil Gains, America Loses from Sanctions

Secretary John Kerry and friends have managed what can only be called a brilliant double suicide. The September 2014 deal with Saudi Arabia to crash oil prices, then at $103 a barrel for US WTI grade crude oil, not only has managed to bring the US shale oil industry—Washington’s new strategic card allowing the US to essentially abandon her Saudi and Gulf Arab allies–to the brink of bankruptcy and collapse. The oil price collapse, ironically, also gave Russian oil beautiful profits and forced the companies to turn east for far larger and more lucrative new markets. Team Russia-Saudi Arabia: 2 to 0 for Team USA-Canada.

Confirmed: Saudi Arabia Offered Russia Oil Alliance and OPEC Membership

Igor Sechin, the powerful head of Rosneft, Russia’s big state oil company, has now confirmed that OPEC - the Saudi dominated oil producers’ cartel - has offered Russia membership.

This comes on the heels of media reports that the Saudis have been pressing the Russians for an “oil alliance” whereby Russia and Saudi Arabia, the world’s two biggest oil producers, would coordinate their production so as to dominate the oil market together.

The Saudi proposal makes complete sense from Saudi Arabia’s point of view.

More countries sending troops to fight Houthis

After Qatar confirmed it had dispatched 1,000 troops for Yemen, more Arab countries have lined up to send ground forces ready to fight as part of the Arab coalition against the Houthi rebels.

According to Al Sharq Al Awsat Arabic newspaper, Egyptian and Sudanese ground troops will be arriving soon in Yemen to participate in Operation Restoring Hope led by Saudi Arabia. It said the Sudanese contingent will include 6,000 troops.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

It will not be easy to rid the world of the grave dangers created by neocon policies.

The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,”

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Coalition strikes Yemen capital, more foreign troops reported arriving

Al Jazeera on Monday said that 1,000 Qatari soldiers had crossed the al-Wadia border crossing from Saudi Arabia.

"A second contingent of Qatari soldiers has entered the al-Wadia border crossing," an Al Jazeera correspondent in southern Saudi Arabia was quoted as saying.


A source close to the Qatari military confirmed the report.

"The operation in Sanaa will use extensive bombing, air power, to support the ground offensive," the source said.

Qatari and coalition officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Egyptian officials told Reuters that an unspecified number of Egyptian troops would arrive in Yemen on Tuesday and Saudi-owned Arabiya newspaper quoted sources as saying that 6,000 Sudanese troops would soon join the fight inside Yemen.

The Sudanese government did not comment on the report but it was corroborated by the source close to the Qatari military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you think that the refugee crisis from the US-enabled wars against Syria was bad, wait until Yemenis start fleeing across the borders in terror, unable to remain in their home.

I would politely like to remind the House of Saud, the US government, the UAE government, and the Saudi government, that collective punishment of civilians is a war crime.

Fox News Doesn’t Get it, Blames Russia for Refugee Crisis in EU

DC has lost it....totally!

There is one thing Fox News has learned to do well over the years — that's to blame Russia for all the bad stuff that happens in the world. The Syrian war breaks out — quick to blame the Russians, the US government organized a coup in Ukraine — of course the Russians were behind it, the channel screams. What's next, Fox News? Perhaps the Russians also started the Ebola virus or were behind the extinction of the dinosaurs?

This time, it was no different after Fox News decided to tackle the refugee crisis in Europe. KT McFarland, a Fox News National Security Analyst invited to talk on the issue, was quick to blame… that's right, none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin for creating the refugee crisis in Europe.

Obama, Saudi King Salman set to meet amid disagreements

King Salman of Saudi Arabia on Friday will make his first visit to the White House since acceding to the throne in January, a meeting that comes as the long-time allies find themselves at odds on several issues, particularly over Iran’s increased role in the region.

“The importance of Obama’s meeting with King Salman, however, goes well beyond the politics of the Iran deal,” said Philip Gordon, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations who served as the Obama’s administration’s White House Coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf region. “Because the reality is that the United States cannot deal successfully with any of the main challenges it faces throughout the Middle East without at least a degree of strategic alignment on key issues with Riyadh, an alignment that in recent years has been lacking.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama wants to insure that the bombs a US government-enabled Saudi Army will continue to reign terror down on Yemenite civilians until the Houthis crumble, and let the al-Hadi government back into power.

To what extent the Iranian government and military are supportive of the Houthis is a matter of speculation; however, there is one thing I would almost be willing to bet on.

The Yemenite people want their country back, and want a voice in its future and its destiny.
