‘Stop Genocide: Peace and Development for Yemen!’

‘Stop Genocide: Peace and Development for Yemen!’

The battle for Hodeidah has reached a critical phase this week, as outnumbered Houthi defenders of the city are inflicting heavy losses on Saudi and UAE troops and southern Yemeni mercenaries. Most importantly, the Red Sea port represents a vital lifeline to the world for humanitarian aid to reach Houthi controlled areas including the capital Sanaa, the highway to which has been almost cut off by Saudi/UAE coalition attacks and air strikes. The fighting must stop so vital supplies, food and medicines can reach starving Yemenis.

From the start of the Yemen War in 2015, the LaRouche Movement and International Schiller Institute have advocated for an immediate end to the hostilities followed by a major reconstruction program to integrate the poorest nation in the Arab world and its neighbors into the Maritime and New Silk Roads.

Sponsors of House Resolution Against U.S. Role in Saudi War: ‘Stop the Unconstitutional War in Yemen!’

Sponsors of House Resolution Against U.S. Role in Saudi War: ‘Stop the Unconstitutional War in Yemen!’

Oct. 11, 2017 (EIRNS)—In an opinion piece published in the Oct. 10 The New York Times, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) denounced the United States’ role in providing arms and warplanes to Saudi Arabia in the latter’s genocidal war against Yemen, and urge support for their bipartisan resolution, H.Con. Res 81, which would halt this action. The names of the bill’s other two co-sponsors, Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), don’t appear on the op-ed.

The authors argue that the Congress hasn’t authorized such U.S. military assistance to the Saudis, and thus it constitutes a violation of the Constitution. They warn that by providing missiles, assisting in selecting aerial bombing targets, and providing midair refueling for Saudi and United Arab Emirates jets, the United States is complicit in thousands of Yemeni deaths from indiscriminate airstrikes, as well as the "horrifying" starvation of millions.

While Trump Visits Saudi Arabia, Houthis Continue Attacks on Saudi Forces

While Trump Visits Saudi Arabia, Houthis Continue Attacks on Saudi Forces

On Sunday President Donald J. Trump gave a historic speech in front of his Saudi and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) hosts, declaring that the U.S. was not against Islam nor seeking to impose the American values on other nations, while calling on Muslims to unite against the scourge of terrorism. While the legacy media focused on Trump, first lady Melania’s demure non-form fitting black pantsuit or lack of a headscarve, or the massive arms and infrastructure deals announced with the pomp and ceremony of a bigly visit to Riyadh, numerous issues lurked behind the scenes. Including questions of persistent low oil prices drastically curtailing the Saudis ambitions to reinvent their country’s hydrocarbon based economy and the obsession with rival Iran fueling a military quagmire in Yemen.

Yemen: USS Maddox, Er, USS Mason -- Did Yemenis Really Fire Missiles at the US Navy? Plus Diego Garcia Rumors

Yemen: USS Maddox, Er, USS Mason -- Did Yemenis Really Fire Missiles at the US Navy? Plus Diego Garcia Rumors

While President Barack Hussein Obama convened a 'war cabinet' to discuss the fading prospect of the lame duck Commander in Chief ordering strikes against Russian-defended Assad government troops on Friday, Vice President Joe Biden (father to the 'ex' cocaine addict Burisma Holdings in Ukraine executive Hunter Biden) and the CIA declared a cyberwar against Russia in the press. The U.S. Department of Defense meanwhile, launched Tomahawk cruise missiles with Obama's authorization at alleged Yemeni radar sites that were used in missile attacks against a UAE military transport and the guided missile destroyer, the USS Mason.

The only problem with the stated rationale for now direct U.S. intervention in Yemen? The Saleh loyalist Yemenis and the Houthis insist the attempted missile strikes on the USS Mason never happened, and the Americans made the incident up to justify intervening on behalf of their failing Saudi allies. Was the incident in which the Navy says at least two anti-ship missiles fell into the sea real, or was it a false flag/faked attack like the infamous 'North Vietnamese gun boat assaults on the USS Maddox' that led to 1964's Gulf of Tonkin resolution?
