We are witnessing an astonishing new level of human depravity in which the US sells $110,000,000,000 worth of arms to the terrorist Saudi state while actively aiding it in bombing and starving it’s neighbours to death.
President Trump mouthes platitudes of ”alternative truth” in the middle east and is applauded by Western media, the sunni States and even the UN in a veritable cacaphony of hubris and damned lies.
Next day we read of a massive cholera epidemic but no one makes the connection. The coming Yemeni genocide is an object lesson, with the proof open to any blogger in the internet, of the capitalist insanity whereby just one day of arms spending could save the infinite suffering of poverty and lack of health services on the planet.
One big ubiquitous lie is that President Hadi is legitimate president of Yemen. He lives in Saudi Arabia, he was appointed by Saudi and the US with no other candidate as a 2 year interim president. .. then he REFUSED TO STEP DOWN or implement any of the agreed power sharing reforms, and continues rejecting the latest UN peace plan solely to retain illegitimate personal power.Continue reading Depraved USA and UK green light Genocide of Millions for Profit in Yemen→
