Hunger Games: Four Years Of Saudi/US Aggression In Yemen

  • RonPaulLibertyReport Streamed live 11 hours ago
    This week marks four years of Saudi bombing in Yemen. US participation in the destruction of Yemen began under Obama, but sadly President Trump has done nothing to end the slaughter. While hospitals are bombed and two-thirds of the population faces starvation, US lectures to the rest of the world about upholding human rights are seen as a hypocritical farce.

US ‘defence’ (war really) budget.

Life in Fear: Report Says 1 in 3 US Drone-Strike Deaths in Yemen Are Civilians, Including Children

  • Life in Fear: Report Says 1 in 3 US Drone-Strike Deaths in Yemen Are Civilians, Including Children
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Bombings by the Saudi-led coalition may have devastated Yemen, but the country faces another deadly threat in the sky – US drones. A third of those killed by them in 2018 were civilians, including children, according to a report.

    “We live in fear. Drones don’t leave the sky,”
     said one farmer, describing the day that two of his relatives were killed in a US drone strike. His is one of several testimonies recorded in a new report by Associated Press documenting the rising civilian death toll caused by the US drone war against Al-Qaeda’s Yemeni franchise.


    While gathering an official toll of civilian deaths caused by US drone strikes is difficult – due to the inability to confirm identities or allegiances – estimates by AP show that a third of those killed so far in 2018, or some 30 people, were not members of the terrorist group. Some 215 civilians were killed by drones since the campaign started in 2002, according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

    Some drone strikes kill several people in one family, as happened in January 2018 when a car full of civilians looking for a lost boy was struck by a US drone. Seven were killed in the strike, including five of the boy’s family.

    In an interview with RT, Saleh Farag, the boy’s uncle, displayed pictures of the charred vehicle, and said: “It was a drone missile that killed them.”

    Another incident documented by AP and confirmed by local human rights activists recounted how a 14-year-old shepherd and a passing construction worker were killed in a drone strike. The area where they were killed was several miles from where Al-Qaeda had previously attempted to seize a checkpoint.

Hope On The Horizon For Yemen?

  • RT America Published on Oct 31, 2018
    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have called for a 30-day deadline for ceasefire in Yemen in hopes of ending the US-backed, Saudi-led bombing of the country and ameliorating the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. RT America’s Dan Cohen reports. Then, former US diplomat Jim Jatras and former Pentagon official Michael Maloof offer their insights, also addressing Mattis’s claim that Syrian President Bashar Al Assad needs to be “managed out of power.” Is the United States desperately clinging to relevance in the region?

In the World of American Politics, One Khashoggi Is Worth One Million Yemeni Lives. 12 Million Yemenis May Face Worst Famine in 100 Years

  • In the World of American Politics, One Khashoggi Is Worth One Million Yemeni Lives
    by MICHAEL HOWARD, https://ahtribune.com/
    At this point we can only assume that the Turkish version of events regarding the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi is true. As always, I’m open to being proved wrong, and it’s certainly incumbent upon Ankara to release the audio evidence of which they claim to be in possession (though this, should it come out, will naturally be dismissed by the Saudis as fabricated or doctored), but the list of plausible alternative scenarios currently stands at zero. Khashoggi went into the Saudi consulate and was never seen again. If he had merely been kidnapped and jailed, we’d have heard from him by now. He would have appeared on Saudi state television and delivered some kind of scripted statement like Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri did last November. The House of Saud appears to prefer this time of year, autumn, for abductions and assassinations.

    If Khashoggi was, in fact, whacked out by a Saudi hit squad—complete with torture and Goodfellas-style dismemberment—as the Turks maintain he was, then Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is even crazier than we thought. Since being named heir apparent by his senile father, King Salman, the crown prince has been on a mission to establish himself as the region’s chief thug. This is no small task, but MbS, as he’s blithely referred to, seems up to the challenge.

    As Patrick Cockburn recently wrote, the crown prince’s list of failures, in so short a span of time, is impressive. His escalation of the war in Yemen has achieved nothing unless you count mass murder and mass famine as achievements. The Houthis are holding fast, and the country has been all but obliterated. Perhaps, though, the Saudis view Yemen’s destruction favorably. Like the US invasion of Vietnam, Saudi Arabia’s overarching goal in Yemen is to demonstrate to the region what happens when populations revolt against their oppressors. You want to upend the status quo and realize a degree of independence and self-government, you’d better be prepared to be pulverized. That’s the warning being issued by Saudi Arabia in Yemen.

The US-Saudi Starvation Blockade of Yemen

  • The US-Saudi Starvation Blockade of Yemen
    by Patrick J. Buchanan, http://buchanan.org/blog/
    Our aim is to “starve the whole population — men, women, and children, old and young, wounded and sound — into submission,” said First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill.

    He was speaking of Germany at the outset of the Great War of 1914-1918. Americans denounced as inhumane this starvation blockade that would eventually take the lives of a million German civilians.

    Yet when we went to war in 1917, a U.S. admiral told British Prime Minister Lloyd George, “You will find that it will take us only two months to become as great criminals as you are.”
    ….
    The starvation blockade was a war crime and a crime against humanity. But the horrors of the Second World War made people forget this milestone on the Western road to barbarism. A comparable crime is being committed today against the poorest people in the Arab world — and with the complicity of the United States.

    Saudi Arabia, which attacked and invaded Yemen in 2015 after Houthi rebels dumped over a pro-Saudi regime in Sanaa and overran much of the country, has imposed a land, sea and air blockade, after the Houthis fired a missile at Riyadh this month that was shot down.

    The Saudis say it was an Iranian missile, fired with the aid of Hezbollah, and an “act of war” against the kingdom. The Houthis admit to firing the missile, but all three deny Iran and Hezbollah had any role.

    Whatever the facts of the attack, what the Saudis, with U.S. support, are doing today with this total blockade of that impoverished country appears to be both inhumane and indefensible.

    Almost 90 percent of Yemen’s food, fuel and medicine is imported, and these imports are being cut off. The largest cities under Houthi control, the port of Hodaida and Sanaa, the capital, have lost access to drinking water because the fuel needed to purify the water is not there.

    Thousands have died of cholera. Hundreds of thousands are at risk. Children are in danger from a diphtheria epidemic. Critical drugs and medicines have stopped coming in, a death sentence for diabetics and cancer patients.

What Is The US Government Preparing For?

US_Govt_stock_piling_food_ammo_weapons_water_medical_supplies

  • What Is The US Government Preparing For?
    by Michael Snyder, http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/  
    You may not be getting prepared for a major national disaster, but the government sure is.  I have been informed that in recent months numerous emergency food companies have been contacted by the government, and they have been told that their inventories could potentially be seized in the event of a significant emergency.  And as you will see below, the government recently participated in an exercise that simulated “an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade”.  In addition, NPR has just revealed details about the very secretive Strategic National Stockpile program that is storing billions of dollars worth of medical supplies in warehouses around the nation.  This is a program that most Americans do not even know exists.  On top of everything else, strange reports of military vehicles with UN markings have been coming in from all over the nation.  So what in the world is the government up to?  Why are they working so feverishly hard to get prepared?

    Let’s begin our discussion with the Strategic National Stockpile.  According to NPR, there are at least six of these warehouses at various locations around the country, and they are holding at least seven billion dollars worth of supplies…

    Thousands of lives might someday depend on this stockpile, which holds all kinds of medical supplies that the officials would need in the wake of a terrorist attack with a chemical, biological or nuclear weapon.

    The location of these warehouses is secret. How many there are is secret. (Although a former government official recently said at a public meeting that there are six.) And exactly what’s in them is secret.

    “If everybody knows exactly what we have, then you know exactly what you can do to us that we can’t fix,” says Burel. “And we just don’t want that to happen.”

    What he will reveal is how much the stockpile is worth: “We currently value the inventory at a little over $7 billion.

    The NPR report indicates that most of the supplies are medical in nature, and this includes “millions of doses of vaccines“. 

    Could it be possible that the government is anticipating a major pandemic in our near future? As I mentioned above, the government has also been preparing for a major food crisis.  The following comes from Vice…

‘Operation Barbarossa 2’: “Overpopulation” and the Funding of World War III

henry-kissinger-control-food-Oil

  • ‘Operation Barbarossa 2’: “Overpopulation” and the Funding of World War III
    by Peter Koenig, http://www.globalresearch.ca/  
    “Wars are horrible. The only good thing about wars is that they help reduce the world population.”

    These are the words flung in my face not too long ago, by a person I thought was close to me. I was in shock and asked what do you mean?

    “Well, don’t you think the world is over-populated?”

    – I couldn’t believe that these were the thoughts of somebody I had respected. They may well be the thoughts of common people in my close vicinity. By opening my eyes to a dimension I ignored until then – the secret thoughts and dreams of people, maybe of the masses began revealing themselves; thoughts that are expressed only in an ambiance of familiarity, or perhaps when ‘under the influence’, when often the inner-most truths come to the fore.

    Over-population is a western ego-centric phantasy. Western Comfort is afraid of having to share some of their excesses with the poor under-humans of so-called developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America – the slowly emerging Continents that have been raped for hundreds of years by precisely the same western colonialists which today claim over-population and wage war around the world in a new form of colonialism.

    According to FAO – the UN’s World Food Organization – the globe’s current agricultural potential could feed at least 12 billion people, if only the food would not be subject to speculation and would be properly distributed. But it isn’t. Food crop speculators in the US and in Europe, command the price – they literally control who may live and who must die – by famine.

    According to the World Bank, 80% of the food-price hike induced famine of 2008 / 2009 that precipitated the death of 2 million people in Asia and Africa was the result of food speculation. Three weeks ago, the Swiss Government recommended its electorate to reject a Swiss socialist-led people’s initiative against food speculation. Their main arguments were denial that food speculation caused famine; and “if we forbid food speculation, the speculators will leave Switzerland and make their profit elsewhere”. With the prevailing neoliberal thinking: Profit über Alles, ethics has no place. The Swiss populace indeed complied and rejected the initiative with a margin of almost 2:3. The financial centers of Switzerland in Zurich and Geneva control some of the largest food speculators in the world. The nefarious speculative business practices of Place Finance Suisse are alive and well.

    Thoughts and clandestine desires of population reduction and faraway wars are most likely the unconscious results of decades of horrendous western propaganda seeking in one way or another popular consensus that wars are necessary, wars are normal, wars is what people had since ‘the beginning’. What beginning? – Most certainly the beginning of the atrociously violent and greed driven Judo-Christian era, some six thousand years ago.

    The justification for continuous conflicts and killing is precisely what the western media are propagating day-in-day-out – terror that has to be fought by wars. If there is not enough terror to rationalize a war, terror has to be manufactured – by false flags. The west has perfected the science of constructing false flags – so credibly that the masses are screaming for more police and military protection; so credibly that the masses want more wars in far-away overseas places, more wars for their protection, for the protection of their comfort; so credibly that western societies gladly give away their civil rights for more police and military protection. As an example, following the January and November 2015 ‘terror attacks’ in Paris, President Hollande is attempting to put a State of Emergency permanently into the French Constitution. So far it has been blocked by Parliament.

    The propaganda now, as well as then, spreads fear. When man is fearful, he is most vulnerable and can easily be manipulated.

Agenda 2030’s Goal #12 Will Exterminate Six Billion People

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Guidestones

Mass culling of the sheeple.

  • Agenda 2030’s Goal #12 Will Exterminate Six Billion People 
    by , http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/  
    Move over, Mao, Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot, there is a new extermination king in town. It is called Agenda 2030.

    The Agenda 2030 conference in Paris is being guided by 17 goals which contains targets that will forever alter humanity and change the planet forever. Of particular concern is goal #12, as it is the conduit from which the globalist depopulation agenda will be ushered in.

    Agenda 2030 Goal #12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
    Follwing the planned economic collapse, Agenda 2030 will enforce the most brutal austerity programs ever conceived of, or ever enforced.  Just as it was in the Hunger Games movie, all food, water and medicine will be rationed. Inhabitants will be forced to take the Mark of the Best, the dreaded but largely unkown RFID chip. We are already witnessing the birth of a cashless society. Soon, cash will be banned. Automation will bring promises of unlimited food production. The public will be sold on the widespread use of robots to achieve this goal. It will be a ruse. The goal is to replace human workes with robots. The globalists will horde the food in order to help wipe out the ‘useless eaters’ through starvation. Then the population will be forced into a devastating World War III. Subsequently, Ted Turner and the other globlaists will be able to achieve their goals of reducing the world’s population to a low of 500,000,000.


    Predictive Programming of Man’s Demise
    From the early 1960’s, the TV show, The Twilight Zone predicted the obsolescence of mankind through automation. It is chilling that a TV show from over 5o years ago predicted the time and events that we are now living in.

    Humans Are the Excess Inventory of the World
    What do business owners do with their excess inventory? They at first try to get rid of the product by selling at a reduced price and when that fails, they simply destroy the inventory. The latter is the fate that awaits the American people and ultimately the human race. Soon, humanity will no longer be needed because humanity has become the newest form of excess inventory. Over 90% of us will soon be obsolete.


    Soft Kill Methods
    Fluoride, aluminum from chemtrails and specific vaccines, artificial sweeteners, dangerous drugs (VIOXX) have constituted some of the passive means of depopulation. Humanity’s very existence is under assault. Why? Because the majority of humans are no longer needed as a species. One of the popular sayings in our society in regard to how many things causes cancer is to dismiss the danger as “everything causes cancer”. And of course, anybody that writes about our toxic environment, dangerous GMO food supply and tainted drinking water is a conspiracy theorist unless they work for the EPA and are preparing to steal your land. As devastating as the soft kill methods that we have been forced to endure are, these methods pale in comparison as to what lies ahead.

    Take the Globalists At Their Word
    The words of Henry Kissinger tells humanity what lies ahead.

MSF: Saudi Blockade of Yemen Killing as Many Civilians as War

  • Published on Jul 30, 2015
    An international medical humanitarian organization says the Saudi blockade of Yemen is killing as many civilians as the country’s war. The head of the Doctors Without Borders group said many people are dying because Riyadh prevents medicine from reaching the sick. Joanne Liu said Riyadh needs to put in place ways to get supplies to come in a safe way. It was the latest warning about the dire humanitarian situation in Yemen four months after Saudi Arabia began bombing the impoverished Arab country. Riyadh has imposed a unilateral aerial and naval blockade on Yemen amid its deadly airstrikes. Last month, the United Nations Security Council urged Saudi Arabia to lift its blockade, stressing that ships carrying food, fuel, and other vital supplies must be permitted to enter ports in Yemen which is on the brink of famine.
