Foreign powers conspiring against people of Yemen: al-Houthi

(Looks like I was right about Washington staging another color revolution)

from Press TV

The leader of Yemen’s Shia Houthi Ansarullah movement has accused some foreign powers of conspiring against Yemen and its nation amid the political tensions in the Arab country.

Addressing thousands of his supporters in the northern city of Sa’ada on Tuesday, Abdul-Malik al-Houthi censured political factions in cahoots with some regional states, noting that they want to ignite conflicts and create problems in Yemen.

He added that such factions try to wreak havoc in Yemen by ignoring the public interests of the nation.

Al-Houthi warned conspiring factions against the dire consequences that their attempts would have at the end.

Obama resumes drone strikes in Yemen – Kills Twelve-Year-old Boy

by Thomas Gaist, WSWS

Just days after Houthi rebels in Yemen’s capital of Sanaa toppled the US-backed government of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, Washington has resumed its drone war against the impoverished country, killing a 12-year-old boy and two alleged Al Qaeda militants in a missile strike against a car traveling in the eastern Marib province.

The strike was carried out by the Central Intelligence Agency, US officials told the Wall Street Journal. The CIA administers one of two US targeted killing programs directed against Yemen, with the other managed by the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).

New waves of drone strikes against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) are currently in preparation, President Barack Obama and US military officials said Sunday. The US has launched hundreds of drone strikes against alleged terrorist targets in Yemen in recent years.

Monday’s strike comes amid indications of preparations for expanded US and NATO military action in Yemen and a growing list of other countries. US Secretary of State John Kerry pointed to Nigeria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and the Central African Republic as candidates for new US military operations in remarks at the World Economic Forum in Davos last week.

The Global Rise of the Radical Left in Opposition to Fascist Globalization

by Scott Creighton

I see in the future a crisis approaching that fills me with anxiety. As a result of the war, corporations have become enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow. The money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its rule by preying upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is concentrated in a few hands and the Republic destroyed. ~ Abraham Lincoln.

Savage capitalism of the neoliberal IMF/World Bank “free market economy” persuasion is failing across the globe. From one nation to another, people are sick and tired of Ayn Randian philosophy and Milton Friedman/ University of Chicago austerity packages otherwise known as the Washington Consensus. There is another name for it.

The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is Fascism – ownership of Government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt.

It is with good reason that Ayn Rand hated FDR and with good reason Milton Friedman loved her so. They were both fascists.

All across the world, neoliberal globalization, or “corporatization” as some call it, is being exposed and rejected by the people it was designed to enslave.

What is rising in it’s place is a redefined, conscience, left-leaning awakening, an attempt to bring consideration for humanity and social/economic justice back into the systems of governance that steadfastly reject such primitive notions. Systems usually installed and directed by the billionaires and banksters I like to call the “masters of the universe”

Three quick examples will show how this movement is unfolding at a rapid pace right before our eyes with almost zero coverage from the MSM.

Is Washington Staging a Color Revolution in Yemen?

by Scott Creighton

Late Houthi leader Hussein Badr Addin al-Houthi was an outspoken critic of the government’s dependence on foreign allies like the U.S. and oil-rich Saudi Arabia.” Global Issues

According to reports (here and here) there are “thousands” of protesters on the streets in Yemen rising up against the new Houthi government while demanding the return of their dictator President Abdurabuh Mansur Hadi (our dictator installed in a one candidate “election” by Hillary Clinton with the aid of the Saudi regime)

Hadi was installed as part of a U.S. and Saudi-backed accord in 2012 to end a year of protest against his predecessor Ali Abdullah Saleh. He has struggled to exert authority over much of the country amid challenges by ethnic separatists, political protesters and Islamist militants .Bloomberg News

Of course, in the photos I’ve seen, there are no more than a hundred or so and they are all mainly dressed like these petty bourgeoisie a-holes.( Here is a photo of one of the demonstrations but that one is in Ibb, Yemen which means it’s probably the secessionists of South Yemen as opposed to the petty bourgeoisie yuppies who wist to return our puppet to power. )

Anti-Houthi protesters in Sanaa 24/01/2015

This is a picture of Houthis supporters in Yemen back in Sept of 2014 after they took the capitol Sanaa. Notice a difference?

The demonetization of the new ruling power in Yemen has already begun in earnest. Apparently you can’t write a MSM article about what’s happening over there without claiming in the first couple paragraphs that the Houthis are backed by the evil Iran (ooooo scary)

There are other outlets that go even further in their efforts to propagandize developments. Here USA Today claims the pro-rebel marchers are carrying banners that “curse the Jews”

It seems we have another Libya unfolding in Yemen. A fake color revolution being readied to serve as the pretext for Obama’s next “humanitarian intervention” on behalf of the vested oil interests of the masters of the universe.

“Sources Say” One Brother Trained with al-CIAda in Yemen

by Scott Creighton

Shaky-cam videos, “sources say” journalism… I’m sorry, did this take place in Paris or Libya? If Hollande wasn’t such a sell-out already, I’d say this is another Obama regime change op.

There are new reports out that the older of these two suspects, brothers, trained with al-CIAda in Yemen back in 2011. Of course, for national security reasons, the reports are based on nothing more than the say-so of unnamed “high ranking officials”

One of the two brothers suspected of killing 12 people at a satirical newspaper in Paris traveled to Yemen in 2011 and received terrorist training from Al Qaeda’s affiliate there before returning to France, a senior American official said Thursday. New York Times

The sources said Said Kouachi, 34, was in Yemen for a number of months training with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), one of the group’s most active affiliates. Reuters

Supposedly, this is an attempt to explain one or two of the shooters telling a witness (the one who let them in the door past the security lock) “Tell the media that it is Al Qaeda in Yemen,”

I guess we can expect France to get on-board the bombing of Yemeni dissidents at this point.

Yemen: Hostage Luke Somers Killed During Rescue Attempt – Along With 8 Unarmed Civilians

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: According to the official story told by unnamed officials, those 8 civilians are now al Qaeda:

“At least nine al-Qaida militants were killed in an initial drone strike, another security official said. Both spoke on condition of anonymityHuffington Post

Also of note, the raid took place this morning, one day before the other hostage was reported to be released. That hostage died as well.

But an aid group helping negotiate Korkie’s release said he was to be freed Sunday and his wife was told that “the wait is almost over.” Huffington Post

The timing of the raid, just one day before that release, was spurred by a report from a Yemeni security official who claims he had word that Luke would be killed today.

———-

It hardly seems like a story worth reporting on anymore. “At least” eight civilians killed during a U.S. commando raid in Yemen. The headline at the New York Times focuses exclusively on the American hostage, Luke Somers, who also died as a result.

The left is busy running around protesting the militarization of police departments and the deaths of a couple unarmed men here in the states and feeling very good about themselves while they do it… while in the meantime, the military continues to rain hell down on unarmed civilians across the world and there isn’t a peep out of the fake left anymore.

According to the story, Luke Somers was a freelance photojournalist working in Yemen when he was abducted late last year. The group that took him is supposedly part of a movement that wants our puppet dictatorship out of power in the country and an end to the brutal austerity of free-market neoliberalism. But, more accurately, Luke focused his work on putting a human face on the rising protest movement in the country and the group that took him, al CIAda, are just more puppets of ours.

And he was killed in the rescue attempt under questionable circumstances?

Hmmm….

Barack Obama is Guilty of Murder, It’s Just That Simple

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: There are some good articles on this topic. Check out Firedoglake, Black Agenda Report, and Glenn Greenwald

————

Jeremy Scahill went on MSNBC yesterday morning and said something that I have been writing for years, that by his own admission, Barack Obama is guilty of the murder of scores of innocent people in Yemen, including but not limited to 14 women and 21 children according to the Amnesty International report on the Dec. 17th 2009 cruise missile attack authorized by the Peace Prize “winning” president himself.

“Terrorist”?

Though I give him credit for that aspect of his appearance on the show, I have to remind everyone of the kinds of people who are designated “terrorists” in the first place and the real reason the Obama administration is bombing Yemen (it ain’t to protect our “freedoms” if that’s what you think) and Syria, Libya, Sudan, and Somalia.

“This is a memo that describes how we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years starting with Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off with Iran.” Gen. W. Clark 2007
