Media Ignores Dozens of Blackwater Mercs Killed in Yemen

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


by Joshua Krause, Black Listed News

While an abundance of attention has been placed on the alarming growth of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, the world has largely overlooked the civil war in Yemen, which has been ongoing for nearly a year. After Houthi rebels took control of the government and forced the president to step down, Saudi Arabia intervened in March of 2015 with airstrikes and a naval blockade.

They have since been joined by a coalition of 9 other Middle Eastern and African countries, who are intent on removing the Houthis from power because it’s believed that the Iranians are backing them. Since the Saudi-led intervention began, 7,000 people have been killed by their airstrikes, many of them women and children.

Of course, a war in the Middle East wouldn’t be complete unless the US was involved in some capacity. Officially, our government is only providing logistical support and intel for the Saudis, as well as the occasional drone strike. However, there is a bit more to it than that, because the Saudi coalition has employed hundreds of mercenaries from South America (mainly Colombians) and Africa. And these people are being led by mercenaries from Academi, formerly known as Xe, which was formerly known as Blackwater.

The thing people forget about this company is that it blurs the line between mercenaries and state-sanctioned armed forces. They get paid like mercenaries, but for all intents and purposes they are US military, because they don’t get involved in any mission unless it is sanctioned by our government.

The purpose of this organization is obvious. They get sent into any situation where our government would rather not send US troops. Any conflict that might result in massive newsworthy casualties, is where Blackwater shows up. Yemen certainly falls under that category, after what happened on Sunday.
