Yemen: A US Orchestrated Living Hell

Media reports on devastating war in Yemen, including from most alternative sources, fail to explain the conflict was planned and orchestrated in Washington. It began under Bush/Cheney shortly after US naked aggression was launched in Afghanistan on October 7, 2001 – four weeks after the 9/11 state-sponsored mother of all false flags. Both wars and …

Don’t be Fooled by US Calls for Yemen Ceasefire. It’s PR Spin for More War

The UK appears now to be gearing up towards authoring a UN Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Yemen, following years of blocking any resolutions on the issue. The UK has been the official "penholder" on Yemen, meaning that it has been up to the UK to table resolutions, which it has steadfastly …

Russia Can Help Secure Saudi Interests Within the US-Run Yemeni Peace Process

The US proposed that a UN-brokered Yemeni peace process begin by December. This suggestion caught some observers by surprise who hadn’t counted on the US contradicting its Saudi ally after Riyadh’s almost five-year-long insistence on achieving a “total victory”, but the recent worsening of relations between the two Great Powers after Jamal Khashoggi’s killing made …

The Western media coverage devoted to the murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi proves the cynical adage that one person’s death is a tragedy, while millions of deaths are a mere statistic. During the past four weeks since Khashoggi went missing at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the case has been constantly in the news cycle. …

The Yemen War Death Toll Is Five Times Higher Than We Think

One reason Saudi Arabia and its allies are able to avoid a public outcry over their intervention in the war in Yemen, is that the number of people killed in the fighting has been vastly understated. The figure is regularly reported as 10,000 dead in three-and-a-half years, a mysteriously low figure given the ferocity of …

Why Do Yemen’s Dead Not Merit the Attention of Jamal Khashoggi?

The apparent murder of Saudi Arabian dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a shocking crime that merits the international attention it has received, but nonetheless it is impossible not to wonder why the death of a single person receives vastly more coverage than ongoing Saudi atrocities in Yemen. Is it that a dramatic story involving a single …
