Amir Askari Yahyavi ~ ” The Yemeni people have through the machinations of a coalition of barbarians in suits been exposed to perdition. I condemn the tabloids to hell for their complicity in imposing this mean, cruel existence of the Yemeni people, through the lies, false castigations and the whitewashing of the culprits for this wholesale murder of a nation.
And what of us? We who are reduced to looking on this calamity in despair, a complete lack of hope and frustration over the inability to do anything. We are exposed to a sordid chapter of atrocity fatigue, where we are slowly, but safely becoming immune to this sort of barbarity and thus rendered into passive complicity in American war crimes.
Who imposed this blockade upon Yemen? Have we lost our tongues that we can no longer call a spade a spade? Who authorized the Americans to impose this regime of starvation until death at the behest of Saudi pieces of shit? The Saudis are evil and the fact that we are afraid to point out the obvious alarms me. And who green-lit the smear that Iran supposedly backed Houthi rebels when all intelligence agencies of repute have refuted this myth altogether?
We have the finest platform of all time to unite and stand up to tyrants who soil their hands in the blood of innocent people. Yet what are we doing? Hundreds of thousands mourn the loss of a lion. Granted, poachers are scum, but a lion receives 100,000 signatures in a petition, while a Palestinian infant burned to death by a fanatical Israeli settler can’t scrounge even a fraction of the attention?
I understand that I am preaching to the choir, but this cannot be stressed enough. We are living in times of degeneracy and moral bankruptcy. Barbarity is becoming the normative and we are funding it with our tax money. The military industrial complex is laughing its way to the bank. Ordinary people are becoming poorer and poorer, class divides are merely widening and soon enough we may find ourselves in an existential quagmire, not unlike that suffered by the Yemeni people.
God help them. Nobody else is. And nobody is allowed to either.”
