Blaming Iran for the Sufferings of Yemenis Is Laughable | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Blaming Iran for the Sufferings of Yemenis Is Laughable

The new U.S. leadership is resorting to every ploys and lies to demonize Iran. The new project of Iranophobia has intensified since Pompeo confirmed as secretary of state in late April. He seems to be superseding in animosity against Iran in comparison to John Bolton, the national security advisor to Trump.

Pompeo’s degree of hatred toward Iran was fully laid bare during his speech at the Heritage Foundation on May 21 in Washington.

It is quite clear to the entire world that it is Saudi Arabia and the UAE – the United States’ close friends – which have created human tragedy in Yemen by strangulating and starving millions of people in the poor Arab country. Maybe it is the easiest way to blame Iran for what Washington’s friends have been doing.

How can Iran, even if it wanted, to help Yemeni rebels while the country is besieged by the Saudi-led alliance. Attempts to link the miseries of the Yemenis to Iran can never hide the crimes being committed by the Saudi-led coalition.

In addition to efforts to demonize Iran, Pompeo probably wants to facilitate and justify the sale of more arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Pompeo’s boss, Donald Trump, who has a covetous eye on the immense wealth of Saudi Arabia and the UAE, should be happy with the war on Yemen because he wants to sell more and more “beautiful” weapons to these two wealthy states in order to say that he is creating jobs in the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would characterise President Trump, in his wanting to sell more and more weapons to the Saudis, for the purpose of its genocidal assault against Yemen, as the American Merchant-of-Death-in-Chief.

Oh, and BTW, Mr. President: here is what US government-enabled Saudi war crimes in Yemen look like:

Mr. President, as a Christian pacifist activist, and witness, as long as there is breath in my body, I will continue to advocate for a US foreign policy which values moral, hard-won negotiations over the use of bombs and bullets, as the way the US should be resolving its international disputes.

But to blame Iran for the craziness of the US-enabled Saudi military's war crimes in Yemen, is disingenuous beyond belief, sir: it will not, and cannot, work, because the American people have awakened from their geopolitical slumber, after having been lied to about the justifications for the wars in Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan, and will be both peacefully, and effectively vigilant, that the US not be lied into another war, this time against Iran, no matter how much Sheldon Adelson, Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, and the Butcher of Yemen (AKA Prince bin Salman) want the US military to fight this war.
