REPORT: PENTAGON SECRETLY TRAINED UAE FIGHTERS FOR COMBAT IN YEMEN — THEN LIED ABOUT IT

On Wednesday, Yahoo News revealed new documents from late 2017 that show, contrary to the Defense Department’s insistence that it is neutral in the bloody conflict in Yemen perpetrated by a coalition of Saudi Arabia and its allies, the U.S. appears to have provided training to forces from the United Arab Emirates, which is part of the coalition:

The United States is “not a participant in the civil war in Yemen nor are we supporting one side or the other,” Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said last month, echoing a long-held position in the Pentagon.

The files, obtained from Air Forces Central Command via the Freedom of Information Act, appear to tell a different story. “Escorted 6 UAE F-16s to RED FLAG” — reads a December 2017 Air Force document referring to an advanced aerial combat training exercise held for U.S. and allied pilots — “assisted 150 airmen in challenging ex[exercise] to prepare for combat ops in Yemen.” The document goes on to detail additional support provided by the U.S. Air Force’s Air Warfare Center at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates. “Unit fighter personnel advanced the UAE’s F-16 fighter pilot training program; 3 pilots flew 243 instructor sorties/323 hrs that created 4 new instructors & 29 combat wing men who immediately deployed for combat operations in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even the US's military lies, and with impunity.

The alleged "leadership" in this country crafts never-ending wars with which to keep Americans distracted, while foreign countries find the US government, or its minions are creating regime change, to insure that a more US-centric model; expropriates their resources; and making sure that those resources are all sold to "appropriate" countries, and only for the US dollar.

Wash; rinse; repeat.

The pattern, now, is perfectly predictable.
