Saudi Warplanes Massacre 140 in Attack on Yemen Funeral.

In one of the worst atrocities of the 21st century, the Saudi led coalition have exceeded their own grisly record of mass murder, the 130 they slaughtered when they attacked a wedding last year with an even bloodier atrocity, murdering 140 civilians and wounding a further five hundred in a series of airstrikes against a community hall conducting a funeral in the Yemeni capital Sa’ana yesterday.

The site was attacked by at least two bombs dropped from aircraft, the second attack was filmed from nearby and the sound of approaching jets can be heard prior to the blast.

The Gulf coalition are the only party operating aircraft over Yemen so there can be no doubt as to what has happened here, nor the identity of the criminal party nor the monumental, mind bending hypocrisy of the United States who are preparing to go to war with Russia and Syria due to their supposed outrage over the civilian casualties as the Syrian Army attempt to liberate the eastern part of the city of Aleppo from the sectarian death squads sent by the US and her allies to destroy the state.

 

The Saudi led coalition of mostly Gulf states supported, armed and facilitated by the United States, have been bombing Yemen since March 2015 killing tens of thousands of civilians over the past eighteen months whilst achieving absolutely nothing. Mainstream Western sources admit that one-third of all the Gulf coalition airstrikes target civilian sites. (Source)

Meanwhile the people of Yemen, the poorest nation of the Arab speaking world suffer widespread malnutrition.

“UN figures claim more than half of Yemen’s 28 million population is suffering from a lack of food, and vulnerable children end up being the hardest hit. Up to 400,000 children suffer severe malnutrition leading to a number of diseases.” (Source)

One of the many small scale nuclear attacks on Yemen over the past 18 months.

The frequent small-scale nuclear attacks are apparently already causing signature cancers according to Yemeni human rights activist Kim Sharif who told RT that:

“people are dying of chemical type of weapons, where children are developing very unusual cancers that are usually connected with a nuclear type holocaust. This is very shocking and so frequent in the northern parts of the Yemen that there is a disproportionate development of rare types of cancers that are usually connected with nuclear types of disaster.”  (Source)

All in all it has been one great big humanitarian festival thrown for the people of Yemen by the Saudis and their Western backers and in one stroke this operation shows that ALL WESTERN CLAIMS TO HUMANITARIAN CONCERN ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET ARE COMPLETE AND UTTER NONSENSE.

Yesterday in Ta’iz a wedding party was targeted by warplanes, more than 13 people were killed.
It was an awful massacre and the scenes of the aftermath are almost unbelievably horrific.
The mangled remains of former human beings were truly stomach churning. The stuff of nightmares.

The horrific aftermath of the attack on the Ta’iz wedding party.

The Saudi coalition have progressed towards their goals with their choice of Yemeni President,Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, returning to Yemen recently or the first time in six months.

But the idea that Mr. Hadi will be able to resume his Presidency appears to be a fantasy.

Saudi Public Denials are not credible.

According to the Guardian

Saudi-led airstrikes hit Yemen wedding party, killing at least 28 | World news | The Guardian

“Yemeni security officials said two airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition targeting the country’s Shia rebels hit a wedding party, killing 28 people and wounding dozens.”

“The officials, who remain neutral in the conflict that has splintered Yemen, said Monday’s strikes hit the celebration in al-Wahga, a village near the strait of Bab al-Mandab.”

A senior government official said the strikes were “a mistake”.

The Saudi denials are simply lies

The Nuclear Attacks on Yemen.

The so-called “Coalition” attack on Yemen is now into it’s eightieth day or so having started on March 25th..Saudi Arabia and their entourage of lackeys and prostitutes have killed thousands of Yemeni civilians over the duration of the attack.

When the civilians of Palestine are subjected to similar massacres the world at least pays attention. Perhaps the lack of a Western representative in the war is what makes the difference.

Peace talks are scheduled for later this month in Geneva. the likelihood of their success is hard to predict. Until the air bombardment ends the people of Yemen will continue to suffer and their suffering will continue to be ignored by the major Western media who only ever care about human life when they are specifically ordered to do so for the propaganda purposes of the War party.

This isw what these attacks actually achieve.
This is what these attacks actually achieve.

Too distant, too poor and too depressing…it must be Yemen.

In the case of Yemen it sadly seems that almost no-one cares. Yemen is too poor, too remote, too depressing, too far removed from the West, part of a Geopolitical game that is largely beyond both the comprehension and outside the interest of the Western public.

Almost all of my life I would have felt exactly the same way. “It’s too depressing” I would tell myself, “What could you possibly do about it?” etc. So I am not pointing the bone at anyone here but trying to state that this is the way we are in the West at this time.

Nuclear Weapons?

Some or all of these images may depict the use of Nuclear weapons, but these are not Nuclear weapons like the Hiroshima or Nagasaki devices the impact and fall out are far less. These are a new type of weapon and the results are so different from the previous known Nuclear attacks on Japan that the description may not be particularly helpful without first explaining that these are not the Hiroshima size bomb.

A Massacre Whether by Black Powder, RDX or Small Nukes is still a Massacre.

This terrible massacre will probably be remembered by historians as “what the Saudis and pals did in furious response to the apparent US/Iran detente. This was meant to be a show of force, a demonstration of prowess and a threat to Iran of what awaits them.

In military terms the Saudi mass killing spree has apparently achieved little or nothing. The House of Saud will not survive in the current form much longer. King Salman may well prove to be the last King of Saudi Arabia. It seems obvious that when the jihadists of al Nusra and IS have finished fighting in Syria and Iraq, it will be Saudi Arabia and Jordan that will be the next targets for destruction.

If and when the House of Saud falls it will not be missed although if they are replaced by a group such as the al Nusra front perhaps the venal and thoroughly corrupt House of Saud will inspire some positive sentiment in comparison.

These shots are all stills from Youtube videos. The channels that provided the source material include. WarLeaks, Global Leaks, Zig Zag, Gordon Duff, Ruptly(RT) and others I have perhaps forgotten. I acknowledge and thank them and more importantly the people in Yemen who actually shot these images of mass destruction.

Shia Mosque Massacre May Signal Engineered Civil War for Saudi Arabia.

In Yemen a series of attacks have murdered an estimated 137 people as at least three mosques of the Shia Zaydi branch of the Houthis. Senior political and military figures were successfully targeted it appears.

An alleged suicide bomber has also attacked a Shia mosque in the Saudi city of al Qatif today murdering at least nineteen people as they worshipped at Friday prayers. Presumably bothe the Islamic State and an al Qaeda branch will claim responsibility.

Saudi Arabia attack: Islamic State claims Shia mosque bombing – BBC News

The “Islamic State”  (or in this case  ISIL) is predictably claiming the lot although the verification of these claims will never be provided.

There seem to be several alternative explanations for this tragedy.
There is a possibility, in my opinion a very remote one that the criminal House of Saud security forces allowed their jihadist allies to attack the despised and restive Shia.

This makes no sense. The situation in al Qatif has been tense for some time as the embedded video shot around six weeks ago in the same area as today’s attack makes clear.

Saudi regime forces attacking Al-Awamiyah #Qatif with gunfire – April 5th 2015

The last thing the Saudi government need is more trouble and tension.

Another alternative would be an “authentic” terror attack conducted by the Takfiri jihadists in an attempt to start a sectarian war in Saudi Arabia that they will capitalise on to pounce upon the war weakened House of Saud and overthrow it, along with Jordan, as the plot requires Israel to be surrounded as much as possible by “Islamic” extremists. In order to make World War 3 as violent and plausible and complete as possible in the Middle East.
Jordan with it’s current Government, insipid in every way as it is, cannot be credibly nuked in the Armageddon event.

Both the House of Saud and the Hashemites in Jordan are Doomed.

Soon, very soon, the jihadists are going to be turned loose in Saudi Arabia and Jordan The timeline is unclear but this will happen. It may fail but there will be a massive push against both. All the resources that were used against Syria and Iraq will be used against them and they will be helpless. An al Qaeda franchise group, such as the al Nusra front will likely be the next Saudi government.

The Shia areas of Saudi Arabia will within years likely become a state within the state, another Iraqi Kurdistan or Eastern Syria.

If Russia bombed Kiev to restore Yanukovych We Would Be in Favour Right?

An obvious parallel dawned on m recently, the Saudi bombing of Yemen is basically identical to if Russia decided to bomb Kiev as revenge for the “Maidan” Coup”.

The Saudis attacking Yemen with the deposed President Hadi sitting in Riyadh as his nation is obliterated by his ally who are still pretending that he is in power along with the rest of the “Yemeni Government” who also reside in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia would be exactly, absolutely identical to the Russians bombarding Kiev and every other part of Ukraine to restore Yanukovych to power from exile. Hadi will never be able to return to Yemen after this in my opinion, let alone as the President.
It is a sad near certainty that the Yemen Civil War will outlast the maniacal and wicked Saudi bombardment, now into it’s eighth week and with the UN not even pretending to take any real action against the aggressors.

These videos may well depict a type of small nuclear attack.They certainly convey the horror of what the Saudis and their pitiful Coalition of puppets and cowards are waging against the people of Yemen.

In an unprecedented and undoubtedly criminal act, the Government of Saudi Arabia has dropped leaflets in the Yemen province of Saada, on the southern Saudi border ordering the entire population, which Wikipedia puts at almost one million people, to leave.The Saudis have declared that they are going to treat anyone left in Saada after Friday afternoon as a legitimate target in what are threats to commit massive scale crimes against humanity.

This was the wording from al Jazeera.

(Saudi Arabia) “warned all civilians to leave the restive province after declaring the entire territory was a “military target.”

This was from the Daily Star of Lebanon.

“Saudi state television channel Al-Ekhbariya said the whole of the northwestern province would become a military target from Friday evening, hinting at an escalation in the Saudi-led coalition’s six-week-old intervention in Yemen’s civil war.” (Source)

These threats, clearly wildly in contravention of international law are in response to the apparent Houthi shelling of the southern Saudi city of Najran that left several civilians dead during the week. These attacks may well have been conducted by the Houthis, or have been false flags by the Saudis,  it is unclear.

“In one incident,” she said, “on 1 May, at least 17 civilians were killed, including four children and nine women, and 27 civilians were injured as a result of an airstrike that allegedly targeted the home of a Houthi leader in the Sa’wan area of the capital, Sana’a City. Residents reported that they had believed their homes were safe as there were no military locations nearby.”
“In the war-torn seaside city of Aden, at least 22 civilians were killed in two separate incidents in the past week, according to the OHCHR spokesperson.”
“And we are particularly concerned about airstrikes which hit a military field hospital in Damnat Khadeer District, 40 kilometres north of Taiz,” she said. “UN human rights field monitors were denied access to the site, so it has been difficult to verify the death toll and establish who the victims were.”

In another sign of the Saudi desperation, they were finally able to find themselves the janissaries they have been seeking…. from Senegal. In exchange for large scale loan promises, Senegal has pledged to send 2100 troops to the Saudi Arabia-Yemen border area. The Senegalese government have amusingly told their people that the forces will be defending the holy sites of Mecca and Medina from invasion! I guess they must watch only the ABC  type television in Senegal.

The Sooner they Fall the Better.

Saudi Arabia simply has no legal right to call this entire massive province a military target and the attempt to do so is an apparent indication of the Saudi megalomania and desperation. The House of Saud is quite simply one of the most venal and corrupt and wicked forces afoot on the planet today and the sooner these low criminals make their inevitable departure into the forgotten backwoods of history the better.

April 11th, 2015. (Updated April 23nd)

When the Saudi led coalition announced yesterday that the air strikes were ceasing, they sated plainly and clearly that “the Houthi rebels no longer pose a threat to the Security of Saudi Arabia. The statement was a joke, predicated on the falsehood that the Houthis had ever posed a threat to Saudi security but this statement removes all pretensions of legality from this operation, this massacre, as the self defense as authorised by Section 51 of the UN charter was the only possible legal justification for this operation and the Saudi’s by their own words have admitted there is no threat to their security. Every bombing from now on is simply a naked, criminal terrorist attack. All of the deaths that the Saudis inflict from now on, including those depicted from Taiz after the supposed ceasefire are war crimes, even in the Saudi’s own self serving version of events.

“The primary goals of the campaign have been achieved and sovereignty has been protected. We are able to confirm that the Houthis are no longer a threat to Yemenis or neighbouring countries.”

Which removes all pretensions to legality for all Saudi attacks, even on military targets. No threat, no legal fig leaf.

Saudi Arabia have announced they will stop bombing Yemen, stating ridiculously that the “Houthi rebels no longer pose a threat to Saudi Arabia.” They never did.They seem to be trying to leave their options open for a ground invasion, my guess is that this will not happen because the Saudi casualties would be huge. Already at least 18 Saudi soldiers have died, mostly in clashes at the Yemen Saudi northern Yemen border region. The civil war will presumably grind on regardless of what the Saudis do. This operation has been without legal justification, there was no threat to Saudi Arabia there was no UN sanction and therefore this entire operation was a war crime. According to Press TV the death toll from the Saudi attacks more than 2700 people killed, Western sources,  the New York Times and Wikipedia place it at around 1,000. The Saudis have simply humiliated themselves and proven their mendacity and impotence with this flailing and futile operation.

The Saudis Lied!

The Saudi announcement that the bombardment of Yemen was over turned out to be a brazen lie. Saudi airstrikes have continued after the supposed cessation as the fact that they have been completely militarily ineffective is slowly absorbed by the incompetent and despicable Saudi leadership. Ultimately a political solution is required and until that is achieved the Houthis will continue to defeat the al Qaeda extremists and their allies in Yemen backed by the West and Saudi Arabia and there is nothing the Saudis or the US can do about it.

The Attack on Yemen and the “Game of Thrones” in the Middle East.
The beleaguered and impoverished citizens of Yemen are under attack. Saudi aircraft have been bombing Yemen with Western support for several weeks now, since the 25th of March.
The Saudi bombs have exacted an horrific toll on the people of Yemen and caused the widespread displaceent of civilians in the targeted areas. At least 600 people are dead and more than 100,000 civilians displaced.

The Saudi attacks are militarily ineffective and appear to be having a disastrous political affect if the massive Sana’a demonstration is a sign of the broader sentiment.
The Saudis may have actually done the one thing that may see many Southern Yemenis unite behind the Houthi rebels who have responded to the attacks by intensifying and widening their offensive operations against forces loyal to the former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and their Sunni extremist allies of al Qaeda in Yemen.

Several Major Wars Between Saudi and Iran Allies.

So there is a large war in North and Western Iraq, all of Syria is effectively at war, there is now a new major war in Yemen. These wars date back to the illegal US invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the extremist groups that formed in the wake of the disastrous US occupation of Iraq. The US presence largely ended in 2011, only to see the US return to war in Iraq.in June 2014 in response to the massive gains made by the supposed Islamic State group in Iraq. Inclding most notably the seizure of Mosul the largest city in Nprthern Iraq.
Soon after the US also entered the Syrian Civil war,on the opposite side to that envisaged 12 months prior after the al Ghouta false flag chemical attack of August 21st, 2013.

The West came to the brink of attacking the Syrian Government in September 2013 in the wake of the al Ghouta false flag of August 21st. Russian diplomatic intervention combined with a negative vote in the British Parliament. And the reluctance of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff and other elements saw the attack averted only days from the scheduled barrage.

There are a series of large wars taking place in Northern Iraq, but southern Iraq and Baghdad are not at war.
The whole thing is such a complicated mess that it may be better rather than describing each and every conflict in detail, to look at the power players in the Middle East and trace their actions and understand what is happening from the viewpoint of the major regional powers.
Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, major Cabinet posts are filled by the members of 5,000 person Royal family.
The very name gives a strong sign as to the nature of the state.Because naming the state Saudi Arabia would be exactly like calling the UK Windsor (or Saxe Coburg) Britain. Or Tudor Britain in the past. The very state bears the name of the ruling house.
Saudi Arabia has been ruled by the House of Saud since it’s inception in the 1920’s. The House of Saud had a positive relationship with the Imperial powers even before oil was discovered there decades later.
Saudi Arabia has the largest oil deposits of any nation and the oil is extremely accessible. Saudi Arabia is the largest and most powerful of the Gulf states and assumes a leadership role in the GCC, Gulf Cooperation Council.
The House of Saud and Wahhabism.
Saudi Arabia is the home of the major sites of Islam, mecca and Medina and the yearly Muslim pilgrimage remains a major source of income for the Saudis who historically have run the Haj absolutely disastrously, with overcrowding routinely leading to hundreds of deaths in a single pilgrimage.
The specific form of Sunni Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia is Wahhabism and this is deeply problematic. It’s not the practices of Wahhabism that are particularly troubling, although they are also problematic but the view that Wahhabism has of other groups is deeply antagonistic and really anti-human.
The sectarian intolerance of Wahhabism is the core problem of this 18th century doctrine.
Years ago, a pamphlet emerged that had been distributed to guest workers to the nation (another group treated abominably for completely different reasons) to Saudi Arabia. It was at face value a guide to Saudi culture but contained multiple vituperative attacks for example on Shia Islam. A large minority of the population of Saudi Arabia is Shia so this is no incidental blind spot.

This account from Ahmad Ali Khalid a Pakistani who lived in Saudi Arabia provides a neat short portrait of this.

“One can witness a pervasive sort of racism,  a form of Saudi supremacy that views other types of Arabs and particularly the South Asian expats (who are mostly labourers) as inferior and mere ‘commodities’ who can be bought and sold ruthlessly. Expats are not human beings but a commodity to be bartered and acquired.   Connected to racial supremacy is an attempt to insulate the regime from criticism by using the cloak of religion. Saudi textbooks are filled with references to hate; the Islamic Studies curriculum in the country is simply barbaric. I’ve experienced first-hand being taught by an Islamic Studies teacher in one of the most prominent private schools in Riyadh, about the dangers of having non-Muslims as friends and about the evil conspiracies hatched by Christians, Jews and Shias.   In Pakistan, Saudi petro-dollars have funded factories of hate in the form of the madrassa system. ‘Petro-Islam’ is a nightmare scenario – capitalism and a dangerous ideology locked in a tight embrace. It is because of the sheer amount of money behind this austere and dangerous theology that it can easily overwhelm the moderate elements in any given society.”

Pakistan Said No.

Struggling to impose their will upon Yemen, Saudi Arabia requested that Pakistan offer up it’s Air, Naval and Army forces for the Yemen operation.

This implies that the Saudis are so deluded and hubristic that they actually thought that they might send the Army of Pakistan to conquer Yemen. Saudi Arabia has offered substantial financial support to the Pakistani military in the past, and Pakistani soldiers were involved in the operation to seize the Grand Mosque of Mecca from Islmaists who seized it in 1979. The Pakistani Government and Parliament said no to the Saudi Arabia requests, all of them, meaning that the attack on Yemen will grind on pointlessly until the humanitarian crisis arouses the attention of the UN Security Council and a political solution and ceasefire are reached.

It was astonishing to note that the Saudi US Ambassador tried to claim the attack on Yemen was legal under Un article 51, this was a worthless and ridiculous claim as Section 51 refers to the threat of an armed attack on the state. If the Houthi fighters were all lined up on the border poised to invade Saudi Arabia, they could invoke Article 51, there was no threat to Saudi Arabia, the Houthis were not attacking or planning to attack Saudi Arabia there is no basis to invoke Article 51.

Saudi Arabia represents wealthy and well connected backwardness and ignorance in the mode of Government. SLavery was outlawed in 1962. All the Saudi pretensions to leadership ring hollow due to the fact that a corrupt, sectarian monarchy with a policy of selling out to the West can never represent the future of any region. The House of Saud represents a corrupt and decrepit past that desperately clings to power no matter what. That is the one true goal of the House of Saud, to stay in power.

Iran.

The Iranian government seeks to represent the post colonial or anti Imperial trend in the region. The invasion of Iraq was a huge boost to Iran’s regional position, replacing the hostile Iraqi Sunni nationalist government of the Ba’ath party woth Shia parties, all of whom have a very positive relationship with Iran. The implications of this were huge because Iran already had long term strong allies in power in Syria and with a high degree of influence in Lebanon, The Iraq invasion thus created a vast land bridge of Iranian influence reaching from the Iran border with Afghanistan to the East to the Mediterranean coast of Lebanon,

This situation was intolerable to certain parties and more than anything else, the destabilisation of Syria appears to have been an attempt from Israel and Saudi Arabia to counter this
Israel.

Israel’s energies are directed towards provoking every possible disunity and enmity inside the Arab world. Extremists are offered lavish support. Anything that can be used to portray the Arab world as being violent and backwards is promoted. Anything that can distract from Israel’s daily crimes is promoted. Any who oppose either Iran,Syria or Hezbollah are supported.

The United States.

The US appears to have several different and contradictory foreign policies in the Middle East today. This presumably reflects internal power struggles underway in the US between the Israel firsters, as represented by almost all the Republican party, and the “realists” a less aggressive imperial faction represented by the President and actualised in the Iran nuclear deal and the decision to stop trying to overthrow the Government of Syria.

The Israel firsters are a simple group, they believe in Israel and war and especially wars for Israel.

The “realist” faction, they also believe in war, just on a smaller scale and without the occupation element. The first approach is more noxious, more racist, yet each method can lead to the destruction of nations.

Every time an African immigrant drowns in the Mediterranean, President Obama, David Cameron and Nicholas Sarkozy and the Governments of the US, UK and France all share a part of the blame.

The most obvious war crime of the technically speaking entirely criminal Saudi campaign was the massacre of displaced civilians by the Saudi air strike on the Mazraq camp in Northern Yemen at the end of March that left at least 45 civilians dead.
