Death & Destruction In Yemen  
Iraq Formula Is Applied To
Libya, Syria And Now Yemen

(M. Javed Naseem)

وَٱلَّذينَ كَفَرُواْ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءُ بَعْضٍ
 إِلاَّ تَفْعَلُوهُ تَكُنْ فِتْنَةٌ فِى ٱلأَرْضِ وَفَسَادٌ كَبِيرٌ
“The unbelievers are protectors, one of

another. Unless you do this, (protect each
other), there would be tumult and oppression
on earth, and great mischief.” 
(al-Quran 8:73)

Yemen is an ancient historical country. When Prophet Solomon (Sulaiman) sent a message to Bilqees, the Queen of Sheeba (Saba) inviting her to embrace Islam, she consulted her advisors and decided to save her country (Yemen) from war, death and destruction. She visited the court of Prophet Solomon and reverted to Islam, along with the entire population. There was no war, no bloodshed!

Shaitan (the Devil) did not like it a bit. Therefore, he waited patiently for his turn. Today, the Devil’s friends are raising hell in Yemen. There’s death and destruction all over, just like in Iraq, Palestine, Libya, Afghanistan and Syria. The pretext (excuse) was created in Paris where the drama of ‘Charlie Hebdo’ was staged to eventually invade Yemen. From Paris to Yemen, it didn’t take long!

12 million Yemenis with no food.
25 million with no fuel to even cook food they have.
13 million with no water.
What’s 500,000 dead Iraqi children or
civilians in the grand scheme?


They are fooling you!
They are playing with you!
They have been betraying you!
They are robbing you!
They are hurting and killing you!
They are destroying your culture and country!
They are controlling your economic lifeline!
They are dictating you and using you!

O Ummah! Don’t you understand? Are you dumb and blind? When are you going to learn? Don’t you want to wake up for the sake of your children? Or your children are already in the West, supposedly safe and sound?

That’s how you treat Islam and the Quran – Allah’s commands? The wrath of Allah is upon you. Repent and beg for His mercy!
You brought it to yourself. Now, you can’t blame others for your misery. You are digging your own grave! 
وَمَآ أَصَابَكُمْ مِّن مُّصِيبَةٍ فَبِمَا
كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيكُمْ وَيَعْفُواْ عَن كَثِيرٍ
“Whatever misfortune happens to you,

is because of the things your hands
have wrought, and for many (of
them) HE grants forgiveness.”
(al-Quran 42:30)

Prophet Solomon (Sulaiman) made
Yemen embrace Islam without any
war or bloodshed during the time
of Bilqees – the Queen of Sheeba.
Today, the forces of evil have
finally taken their revenge.

Excerpts from Amy Goodman’s report:

More than a thousand people have died since the Saudi-led bombing campaign began in late March. More than half the victims are civilian, including 115 children. The precise toll from the air strikes is not known, because many areas are hard to reach. But the U.N. and several major human rights groups have raised the possibility of war crimes in the scores of documented bombings so far.
The U.S. has played a key role in the campaign, expediting weapons shipments and providing intelligence to Saudi Arabia, including "direct targeting support" for the coalition’s strikes.

Obama approved more arms sales than
any US President since World War II

Now Human Rights Watch has accused the Saudi-led coalition of dropping banned cluster bombs manufactured and supplied by the United States. Cluster bombs contain dozens or even hundreds of smaller munitions designed to fan out over a wide area, often the size of a football field. They are banned under a 2008 treaty for the high civilian toll they can cause. According to Human Rights Watch, the U.S.-supplied cluster bombs have landed near rebel-held villages in northern Yemen, putting residents in danger

Are Obama’s Record Arms Sales to Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Egypt and Iraq Fueling Unrest in Middle East?
(Excerpts from a report published on April 7, 2015,

The majority of weapons exports under Obama have gone to the Middle East and Persian Gulf. Saudi Arabia tops the list at $46 billion in new agreements.
We are joined by William Hartung, who says that even after adjusting for inflation, "the volume of major deals concluded by the Obama administration in its first five years exceeds the amount approved by the Bush administration in its full eight years in office by nearly $30 billion. That also means that the Obama administration has approved more arms sales than any U.S. administration since World War II."
Hartung is the director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy, and author of "Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex."

Official US Policy to Yemen:
Starve the Children (Like in Iraq)

By Nick Hankoff

April 29, 2015—On the most recent episode of former congressman Ron Paul’s Liberty Report, he and Institute for Peace and Prosperity executive director Daniel McAdams discussed the latest news out of Yemen.

Ron Paul opened with an historical context: “I wanna look into a little bit about why the people, especially the children, are starving in Yemen and also are without water and medication. It sounds a little like what was happening in Iraq leading up to the Iraq War,” he said.

What does this have to do with US policy towards Yemen? After Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi (who rose to power in a coup and was “elected” as the only candidate on the ballot) resigned as Yemeni rebels known as Houthis stormed his palace, Saudi Arabia began to bomb Yemen to stop further Houthi advances. Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia, reassumed his role as Yemeni president, and ordered the Saudis to bomb the country he had just escaped.

At this time, the US was deep into talks with Iran regarding a guiding outline to an eventual deal on Iran’s civilian nuclear program. Because the Saudis and their Sunni allies are adversaries of the Shiite Iran, there was pressure for the US to prove its relationship with the Saudi Kingdom had not diluted. Now the US is militarily engaged on the side of Saudi Arabia as it bombs and blocks aid to Yemen. The US sends arms and uses its naval forces to block shipments of humanitarian aid.

In the video, Ron Paul asks, “I don’t know what would satisfy them. How does this end?”

Daniel McAdams cites the figures of 12 million Yemenis with no food, 25 million with no fuel to even cook food they have, and 13 million with no water. What’s 500,000 dead civilians in the grand scheme? McAdams also refers to the growth of al Qaeda as the Houthis and civilians are continually weakened and killed.

How does this end? What is the US interest in starving Yemen?

The butchers wear the ‘Mask of Democracy’ now!
Here, Ron Paul is alluding to President Clinton’s campaign of sanctions that killed 500,000 Iraqi children. Clinton’s Secretary of State justified the astounding number:

Madeleine Albright:  “The death of 500,000 Iraqi children was worth it for Iraq's non existent WMD's.”

The US, UK and Israel are hoping for the same effect on Iranian children with sanctions. Iran does not want or need nuclear weapons. History is repeating itself! 

Why Are We In Yemen?
Former Obama official ditches talking points
Updated: April 22, 2015, by Nick Hankoff

April 21, 2015—US intervention in Yemen deepened this week as the USS Theodore Roosevelt, a nuclear-fueled aircraft carrier, led eight other US naval ships to the coast of Yemen. But what exactly are the national interests being served?

In Yemen, rebels known as Houthis have overthrown the US and Saudi Arabian-backed government, even succeeding in occupying the capital city, Sana’a. Led by Saudi Arabia, nine other Sunni Islamic countries are pushing back against the Yemeni rebels as well as what they perceive to be Iran’s growing influence. Iran is a Shiite country and is thus opposed by the Sunni countries who have been against US talks with Iran over their civilian nuclear program. As a nuclear deal nears, the US is under pressure to reassure these Sunni countries that it has their backs.

Ilan Goldenberg, former State Department and Pentagon official under President Obama told Politico:

“Our involvement in Yemen is a direct function of the talks, and it’s a decision by the administration to try to reassure our Arab partners.”
“I’m not sure what we’re doing in Yemen is good Yemen policy. In fact I would probably venture that it’s bad Yemen policy. But I would say that it’s good U.S.-Saudi relationship policy.”

How does this candid assessment measure up against the Obama Administration and mainstream media talking points?

In soundbite-driven TV news, the situation in Yemen has been summarily described as “confusing” or “complicated,” stressing “Tehran’s support of the Shiite rebels fighting the Saudi-led coalition.” Well, that is confusing because Tehran’s alleged support hasn’t been quantified or qualified with any evidence from the US. The “Shiite rebels” characterization fogs up the fact that they are Yemenis resisting foreign bombers, not simply a “coalition” led by a US ally.

Watch this short video about death and destruction in Yemen:

The alleged support of the Houthis is nothing compared to what the US has done for the Saudi airstrike mission in Yemen. From intelligence to air refueling, the US has made the Saudi bombing campaign all the more damaging, though no more effective. Some 60 Houthis and 45 civilians were killed in just one series of Saudi strikes. Many more civilians have died and the Houthis have not let up their resistance. Is the US supporting the Saudis’ own Vietnam quagmire?

What the naval blockade of Yemen is accomplishing, now with direct involvement of the US, is keeping humanitarian aid off shore. Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world, depending on imports for over 90 percent of its food. Those deliveries will be stalled or not made at all. Is this good for “stability” as the US claims its involvement is?
Besides Saudi Arabia, the Houthis are also battling al Qaeda and the Islamic State who benefit from the chaos created in Yemen. If the Houthis are fighting enemies of the US, what good is the US doing by allying with Saudi Arabia, a country that has been reluctant to do the same?

The recent increase of media hype about Iranian weapon shipments to Yemen runs parallel with their claims about Iran developing a nuclear bomb. Neither of these notions are backed up with evidence, but the international politics driving those talking points are quite evident.

Though the Obama Administration is committed to working out a nuclear deal with Iran, Saudi Arabia must be appeased. Why? And for how long?

These are the questions that can’t be avoided unless the US adopts a more non-interventionist foreign policy.
Question: Do you think US intervention in Yemen will lead to a greater regional war?

Answer: Well, America is the top country benefiting most from the ‘war industry’! US intervention has already led to many wars in a number of countries, especially the Middle East, bringing in billions of dollars worth of profits, plus political control.
