UK Defense Secretary Calls Terror-Bombing Yemen Saudi Self-Defense

UK Defense Secretary Calls Terror-Bombing Yemen Saudi Self-Defense | Saudi-bombing-yemen | War Propaganda World News


Let’s see if I’ve got this straight. America has been drone-bombing Yemen since the Bush/Cheney years, largely killing defenseless civilians, yet media scoundrels ignore it.

In March 2015, Obama launched preemptive war on the country without declaring it, conspiring with Saudi Arabia, creating a humanitarian disaster, at least 80% of the population affected – hundreds of thousands at risk of starvation, dying from preventable diseases or perishing from Riyadh terror-bombing.

Media scoundrels largely abstain from covering a raging holocaust instead of condemning it. As long as they’re silent, the world’s severest humanitarian crisis goes unnoticed – except in occasional UN reports they don’t publish or comment on. Official death and injury numbers way-understate the calamity’s enormity, most Yemenis at risk.

According to London’s  Independent, neocon UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon defended the indefensible, saying Riyadh is “defending itself,” blaming Houthi fighters for Saudi high crimes committed against them and defenseless Yemeni civilians.

Fallon’s logic goes like this. Preemptive naked aggression is OK by a UK ally as long as it’s called self-defense.

He cut to the chase on why Britain supports Saudi ruthlessness – because it’s an “enormously important trading partner, a commercial partner, but also a defense partner,” he said. The bottom line is money and political expediency.

Riyadh is Britain’s largest arms and munitions buyer, amounting to billions of pounds, billions more to other despotic regimes, including Israel.

The UK is a merchant of death and destruction, doing business with brutal regimes like Riyadh, partnering in genocide like Washington.

It’s the second world’s largest arms exporter after America, selling them to 22 of the 30 countries on its human rights watch list, according to UK Trade and Investment.

“We share intelligence with Saudi Arabia about terrorism,” Fallon blustered. Both countries are two of the world’s leading exponents of state terrorism, along with supporting ISIS, al-Nusra and likeminded groups, the scourge they claim to oppose.

Saudis use earlier UK-made cluster munitions against civilians in Yemen. America, Britain, France, Israel, Saudi Arabia and their rogue allies fit the classic definition of rogue states.

Their agendas are responsible for mass slaughter and destruction on an appalling scale in multiple countries. They remain unaccountable for the highest of high crimes.
