Many Sinophiles will not like my report on China’s actions in Yemen – but I have to say nobody has yet given me a satisfactory explanation to clarify why China is in bed with Saudi Arabia, UAE and Israel – a genocidal coalition that has been starving, bombing and depriving 27 million Yemenis since 2015 with the help of the UN and the US UK cabal of course.
I also look at the recent uptick in Israeli aggression against Syria and examine the complex reasons why. The region is heading for an escalation – between Hezbollah and Israel, Palestine and Israel and Syria and Israel or all three. Yemen also is looming as a very clear threat to Israel. The UK and US are bogged down in Ukraine leaving Israel more isolated than ever before.
I welcome back Isa Blumi author of ‘Destroying Yemen’ and historian. We discuss the war in Ukraine and how this will impact on the sovereign nations devastated by Western allied imperialism for decades.
“How will historians a generation or two from now write about this war on Yemen? Will there be any interest in inspecting more deeply what happened, why, and under whose watch such a crime was committed? Or will future historians resort to repeating the dominant frames used to characterize (or ignore) this war on Yemen used today?”
“Tools of Destabilisation: Mainstream Media Propaganda”
The corporate media complex is the interface between the state, intelligence agencies and military industrial complex and the public. The media will follow the road map outlined by Morelli, ensuring the success of each element, in particular the demonisation of the leader in the crosshairs and the obfuscation of the underlying reasons for war. Intelligence operations will be covered up and even when they become public knowledge the state-aligned media will protect power from truth.
“Joining me today is Vanessa Beeley, here to discuss her recent meeting with the Yemeni ambassador to Damascus, who had some very revealing things to say, as well as the recent leak regarding the CIA caught asking for the release of an al-Qaeda leader.”
The answer came in award-winning journalist Vanessa Beeley’s March, 2020, interviews with Yemeni leaders. She was told the various ways in which the United Nations continues to betray the interests of Yemenis. While the UN praises Coalition leaders for pledged donations of $2 billion — at least 80% of which disappears or is skimmed off the top — the UN does not criticize the same leaders for their theft of $15 billion/year from Yemen’s oil and gas resources. The move of Yemen’s bank from Sana’a to Coalition-controlled Aden prevents Houthis from accessing bank services such as social assistance and paying for various kinds of aid.
Detainees were physically tortured and disfigured by several methods including whippings with power cords, batons, steel bars taken from school desks; slapping the face and kicking the body especially the injured areas; burning the skin with lit cigarettes; placing the body in a sewage compartment up to the neck and pouring sewage and waste water on wounds.
The US, UK-backed neo-colonialist war against Yemen enters its fifth year. The Saudi alliance of aggression has pulverised entire swathes of Yemeni territory, decimated infrastructure, bombed hospitals into oblivion – all with armaments and weapons systems supplied by the UK/US military industrial complex.
