Trump, Saudi Arabia and the War on Yemen | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Trump, Saudi Arabia and the War on Yemen

On April 2nd, The Yemen News Agency (SABA) reported that US-Saudi war planes struck several targets including private and public properties across several provinces in Yemen:

The US-Saudi aggression war planes continued heinous strikes against citizens, causing heavy damage to private and public properties in several provinces over the past hours, a military official told Saba on Sunday. The warplanes waged 12 strikes on Haradh district of Hajja province and three other strikes on Serwah district of Mareb province, as well waged six raids on Kamaran island in Hodeida province

Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen has created a humanitarian crisis within the poorest country in the Middle East. However, Trump is seeking an even closer relationship with the Saudi Monarchy. The Saudi Monarchy is an important part of Washington’s goal of dominating the Middle East for its natural resources, one that benefits its corporations that range from arms manufacturers to big oil companies. One other important factor to consider is Israel’s security which plays an important part of U.S. foreign policy in the region. Saudi Arabia is a vassal state, one that has a long history of supporting terrorists such as the Islamic state, al-Qaeda and others who have wretched havoc across the Arab world killing innocent men, women and children. Saudi Arabia is also one of the worst human rights violators in the world especially against women.

They are agents of chaos, or one might call “useful idiots” to counter Arab governments and resistance movements (Yemen, Syria, Iran, the Palestinians and Hezbollah) not aligned with U.S. and Israeli interests. So, as expected, US President Donald Trump hosted Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman last month at the White House to discuss economics and Iran’s influence in the Middle East. According to Reuters:

Saudi Arabia hailed a “historical turning point” in U.S.-Saudi relations after a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman highlighted the two leaders’ shared view that Iran posed a regional security threat

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the heck has Iran done, in light of the reality it has not started a war in over 200 years?!?

Iran is not the threat in the Middle East; Israel and Saudi Arabia are the threats to the region, period, end of discussion.

That the US government is still complicit in Saudi war crimes in Yemen, after the "regime change" which brought us President Trump, confounds and disappoints me more than I can articulate.

The Saudis are slaughtering civilians; starving children to death through malnutrition, because of the blockade of Yemeni ports; and using depleted uranium weapons on the Yemeni population, which is leading to massive spikes in cancers, still births, and horrific deformities in newborn children.

But apparently, in the mind of President Trump, some war crimes (like the chemical attack in Syria) are more equal than others, like those I have mentioned above.
