UN Aid Chief Slams Saudis for Blocking Yemen Aid

UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien issued statements Friday slamming the Saudi-led coalition attacking Yemen, along with the Saudi-backed government in south Yemen, saying they are “unilaterally denying and excessively delaying” entry of humanitarian aid into northern Yemen.

This has been a recurring problem throughout the war, as the Saudi coalition’s first act was to impose a naval blockade. Since then, they’ve tried to funnel aid shipments overwhelmingly to Aden, the de facto capital of their allies, while attacking and blockading Hodeidah, the last northern port.

O’Brien insisted that it was “simply wrong” for the coalition to insist that cargo go through Aden instead of Hodeidah, urging the countries to endorse a UN mechanism for allowing shipments into Hodeidah.

The port is badly damaged, and donated cranes to replace those destroyed in prior Saudi attacks have been stuck in Dubai, lacking Saudi permission to be installed. The use of Hodeidah for food and medical aid would be particularly vital because of the cholera epidemic in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to happen when pigs fly.

Prince Salman's attitude toward Yemeni non-combatants seems to include all the following elements; kill combatants and non-combatants alike; starve the Yemeni people into death and submission by malnutrition, and then, with water infrastructure destroyed through Saudi bombings, let's have cholera (possibly weaponised) kill the rest!

And I have a question; where did the 66 million Prince Salmon donated to the UN for treating the cholera epidemic actually go?!?

Prince Salmon donates 66 million to the UN to treat cholera in Yemen, June 2017

Did Prince Salmon cynically give them the aid, understanding that by the time they got around to organising and distributing it with boots on the ground in Yemen, it would be too little too late, if they were able to get it into Yemen at all?!?

Well, here's the answer, and what we have heard about the "cholera vaccination program" for Yemen to date: take a look at this headline from the New York Slimes, dated 11 July, 2017:

U.N. Suspending Plan for Cholera Vaccination in Yemen

The article went on to say:

"The United Nations said on Tuesday that it was suspending plans for a cholera vaccination campaign in Yemen — reversing a decision made a month ago — because the disease’s rampant spread and the ravages of war there would make such an effort ineffective.

Jamie McGoldrick, the United Nations aid coordinator in Yemen, said plans for preventive vaccination were being “set aside.” He attributed the change to obstacles in delivering vaccines in the middle of a conflict that has crippled the country’s health system and hampered access to some areas threatened by the contagious disease."

So the bottom line here is, Prince Salmon makes the donation to the UN, understanding that the UN wouldn't be able to deliver cholera relief because of the instability the Saudi forces have created in the country, and he looks good, because it's now the UN's fault that this aid could not be delivered, not his fault because of the atrocities his troops have committed in Yemen.

It's a classic magic trick, and it has a name: that is "misdirection".

But Saudi Prince Salman, a word please; this is absolutely not working. Thinking Americans, and people around the world, know the "game" you are playing in this genocide against the Yemeni people, and want it to stop.
