UN Announces Over 500, Mostly Civilians, Killed since Saudis began Yemen Aggression; US Announces Will Begin Refueling US-Made Saudi Bombers

Since Saudi dictator Salman began coordinating with the US and some regional dictators, such as US-backed Egyptian military dictator Sisi, to carry out terrorist bombings in Yemen starting two weeks ago, 519 people, mostly civilians, have been killed, and 1,700 injured, according to the UN.  This has included Saudi terror-bombings of a refugee camp, killing 60, and a dairy factory, killing at least 40.  Some 75,000 civilians have been displaced, and Salman is blocking Red Cross humanitarian aid from entering the country.

Alongside this announcement, the US, already openly coordinating the bombings, has announced that it will increase its involvement by refueling the US-made planes (flown by Saudi militants) planting US-made bombs in Yemen.  Antiwar.com notes the Saudi terrorists are therefore arguably US-proxies: “it seems very much that they themselves [the Saudis] are the American proxy in the conflict.”

The attacks have also exhibited another trademark of US or US-backed aggression: they have allowed al Qaeda to take over a major Yemeni city.

    Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, the president of Yemen has called Saudi Arabia “coward” and “puppet of the US and Israel”.

    On March 24, 2015, Adam Garfinkle, the Zionist Jew speechwriter of two US secretaries of state, Gen. Colin Powell and Dr. Condoleeza Rice, blamed Obama on his website, The American Interest, for losing Yemen to Iran.

    “The long record of Administration miscalculations in the Middle East should give anyone pause: a policy that sought peace, reconciliation and stability finds itself with a region increasingly engulfed in flames, with one U.S. plan after another going awry. The Obama strategy of leaving Iraq and winning in Afghanistan has been a failure in both countries. Working with moderate Islamists to defuse terrorism and support democracy failed in both Egypt and Turkey. Libyan intervention and Syrian abstention both led to chaos and promoted the rise of jihadi groups. And now in Yemen, the core of the United States’ counterterrorism strategy has failed and has been hastily rolled up,” Garfinkle said.
