Humanitarian Organizations Condemn Aggression on Yemen, Call for Immediate Move

Local Editor

In a statement on Wednesday, the World Health Organization said that nearly 2,000 people had been killed in the fighting since March, including “hundreds of women and children.” Out of a population of 24 million, the organization said, some 8.6 million people “are in urgent need of medical help,” both for war-related injuries and for common medical conditions.

Aggression on Yemen

Hospitals around the country have closed because of shortages of staff members and fuel, and medicines for diabetes, cancer and hypertension are no longer available. The organization added that “outbreaks of polio and measles are also serious risks.”

It further warned that innocent Yemeni people are paying the “highest price” for the deadly Saudi aggression against the country.

“It is innocent civilians that pay the highest price,” the director general of the WHO, Margaret Chan.
“The health and lives of millions of people are at risk,” Chan warned.

The UN official further warned about the dire medical situation in Yemen due to the Saudi airstrikes and ongoing conflict in the country, saying, “Almost 8.6 million people are in urgent need of medical help.”

She also censured the deadly attacks on medical centers and staff in Yemen, saying the attacks are in contravention of the international humanitarian law.

“Health infrastructure continues to be hit, with attacks reported on hospitals and ambulances, a medical warehouse, an oxygen factory, and a blood transfusion center. Some health care workers were killed trying to save lives and more injured,” Chan added.

Earlier on Wednesday, a Saudi attack on a medical university in the western al-Hudaydah province left dozens dead.

The Saudi warplanes also targeted a medical center in the district of Haradh in the northern province of Hajjah. At least five staffers at the clinic suffered injuries in the attack.

Moreover, at least 100 people were killed and over 270 others sustained injuries in the Saudi aggression against the Yemeni capital Sana’a on Wednesday.

“This unnecessary loss of innocent lives cannot go on,” Chan urged, demanding, “The health system must be allowed to function unimpeded by the insecurity.

Aggression on Yemen

Similarly, the International Committee of the Red Cross Yemen cautioned that the poor country is facing a humanitarian catastrophe unless the Saudi-led coalition allows it to import and distribute vital food, fuel and medicines.

“Humanitarian agencies can do things, but it will be the tip of the iceberg,” said Cedric Schweizer, outgoing head of the ICRC’s delegation in Yemen.

“Most things are political decisions — access to fuel, ensuring that the importation of normal medicines for chronic diseases can be allowed, and food because 90 percent of food is imported in Yemen.”

Commercial fuel tankers must have access to ports and the distribution system for fuel must function, Schweizer told Reuters. Fuel is vital to run hospital generators and water pumping stations in the country of 26 million.

Only 5-10 percent of usual imports has entered Yemen over the past two months of the conflict, which has killed more than 2,000 people, he said. Food prices have soared.

“If there is no fuel there will be no water very soon, and if this is the case we have thousands of people, if not millions, at risk because there is no access to water,” Schweizer said.

“If a solution is not found today it will be a big humanitarian catastrophe.”

Schweizer was speaking after holding talks on the Yemen crisis with U.S. officials and before heading for meetings in Tehran and Moscow.

“What we need is to mobilize these different countries who have an impact or who belong to the coalition to ensure that they take into consideration the needs of the civilian population,” he said.

“We identify all of our movements to the coalition to make sure we are not targeted,” Schweizer said.
The ICRC has 250 aid workers in Yemen. An ICRC surgical team is treating war wounded in Aden and the agency is providing food to 20,000 displaced families.

War Crime Alert: Turkey publicly declares U.S./Turkish air cover for NATO-backed mercenary-terrorists in Syria

Via

In a remarkable outburst, the Turkish FM Mevlut Cavusoglu publicly stated the US & Turkish regimes would provide air cover to their terrorists who are trying to illegally overthrow the Syrian government, without being able to elaborate how.

Cavusoglu’s statement faces numerous obvious legal, practical and propaganda obstacles.

Daily Sabah 25 May 2015

‘a global vision’ to slaughter any civilian that stands in their way

In legal terms his statement is (further) evidence of a criminal intent to commit war crimes.

In practice it would be difficult for the US & Turkey to bomb Syrian civilians in major cities without exposing that contrary to their propaganda the Syrian ‘Opposition’ and ‘Islamic State’ terrorists are the one and same.

The real obstacle the US and Turkish regimes face is that as time has shown, it has been impossible for them to take major cities in Syria.

The ‘fog’ of war has long ago cleared, and everyone in Syria knows all the terrorists of all shades are funded by the many shaded faces of NATO and their Gulf allies.

Obviously NATO and the Gulf Allies along with bought and paid for terrorists would have many difficulties trying to build too many castles in the sand of the desert kind, so to speak.

In a nutshell, a Time Line below (after the latest Turkish statements) indicates that NATO and their terrorists are being legally and militarily squeezed.

On May 19th following the Qalamoun military victory, the Syrian government filed a second formal complaint at the UN over foreign governmentstraining Syria bound terrorists.

(It was Dennis Halliday from the UN publicly saying the murder of 500,000Iraqi children by the US & UK regimes through illegal sanctions wasGenocide, that led to NATO taking the ‘alternative’ route of invading Afghanistan and then Iraq. Now people are wiser to the machinations of the UNSC etc)

A formal complaint by Syria to the UN extends to legal difficulties for and beyond the UN and both Turkey and Jordan which were named by Syria.

DE AIR SUPPORT TO SYRIAN TERRORISTS

Turkey and the United States have reached a “principle agreement” to provide air support for some Syrian rebel forces [terrorists], in a move that could signal growing involvement from Washington in the conflict, a Turkish official said.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told the Daily Sabahon Monday that up to 15,000 moderate Syrian opposition forces that are currently being equipped and trained in Turkey would be provided further support in Syria.

“They have to be supported via air. If you do not protect them or provide air support, what is the point?,” Cavusoglu told the newspaper. “There is a principle agreement on providing air support. How it is going to be provided is in the responsibility of the army.”

Washington could not be reached for comment, Reuters reported.

The U.S.-led program to train and equip [IBTimes] the moderate opposition to the Islamic State group has faced significant delays anddifficulties. The Syrian government has slammed the program, claiming Washington is providing direct support for terrorists, while some rebels have dismissed the program as ineffective or criticized its focus on fighting ISIS instead of Bashar Assad’s regime.

Turkey has long said that any support for the rebels would need to include taking direct action against Assad’s regime as well, whereas Washington has maintained that Assad would need to leave as part of an agreed-upon political transition.

Although the U.S.-led coalition has initiated a bombing campaign[Washington Post] against ISIS in Syria since last October, Washington has been wary of providing a “safe zone” for rebel groups to operate out of, for fear of being drawn into direct confrontation with Damascus.

Cavusoglu added that while fighting ISIS is the current priority, the “regime must also be stopped.”

two nato devils

“…He [Mevlut Cavusoglu] said…that the U.S. and Turkey had agreed in principle to provide the trained and equipped moderate forces with air protection in Syria. He said that the air cover for trained Syrian forces was not part of the comprehensive plan put forward by Turkey that included setting up no-fly zones and safe zones in Syria.

Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said that Turkey and the U.Sagreed [who, when and where ?] to provide air protection for the moderate Syrian opposition forces that are currently being trained as part of the train-and-equip program which started in the Turkish province of Kırşehir recently and aims to train up to 2,000 fightersuntil the end of this year. Regarding the allegations that Turkey and Saudi Arabia have agreed upon an operation in Syria and Turkey will become a part of a sectarian war, Minister Çavuşoğlu said that all of these claims are conspiracy theories and he underlined that Turkey is against sectarianism…[it is nato propaganda which has been filled with the sectarian canard of divide and rule]

There was speculation on the train-and-equip agreement signed with the U.S.. Is there a problem or contradiction with the U.S.?

There are no problems or contradictions; there is only a delay. A day is named; however, due to a delay in technical preparations, it may become obsolete. There was a delay in logistics and the arrival of the personnel.

What are Turkey’s expectations from the train-and-equip program?

We aim to consolidate the moderate opposition in Syria both politically and militarily.

We advocate a political resolution, but a significant alternative in the field is also needed. Both ISIS and the regime forces continue their assaults and killings. Aleppo’s defense against these forces is extremely important. Superiority in the field must be provided. As there are no military operations against these forces currently, with this program, we are trying to achieve a balance. The opposition forces are fighting on both fronts; while the fight against ISIS is prioritized, the regime must be also stopped.

Are there any developments regarding the no-fly zone in Syria?

No-fly and secure zones are a part of the extensive resolution for Syria. However, to provide security for the personnel that were trained and equipped, these are partial solutions.

Is there cooperation with the U.S. in providing air support for the train-and-equip army?

Of course. They have to be supported via air. If you do not protect them or provide air support, what is the point?

Does this air support include the use of armed drones from the İncirlik air base?

These are technical details. There is a principle agreement on providing air support. How it is going to be provided is in the responsibility of the army.

There was news that alleged that Turkey and Saudi Arabia agreed on an operation in Syria, and Turkey will become a part of a sectarian war. How do you evaluate these allegations?

These are only conspiracy theories [it is a matter of fact that divide & rule is colonial ‘policy’]. We are against sectarianism. We advocate national unity in every country that is in a crisis. This is true for Yemen, Libya, and also for Syria; however, in Syria, this must be accomplished without Bashar Assad. He delegitimized himself when he killed 300,000 people. It is not possible for him to govern Syria anymore; he will not be able to unite the nation. There are not any agreements with Saudi Arabia regarding Syria; however, we are of the same mind regarding the regime in Syria, ISIS, and extensive strategy. While we had different opinions on Egypt, there were not any differences concerning Syria. The leader of the main opposition party even claimed that we were going into war in Syria. As the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we are not obliged to answer every wild speculation made every day [it is an undeclared war on Syria to try and avoid the many legal consequences]…”

The U.S. has finally realized that the Assad regime [government] is the source of the instability in Syria and a solution in the country involving Assad is not a viable option

State Department representative, special envoy for Syria and very experienced diplomat Daniel Rubinstein visited Turkey last week and held meetings with his Turkish officials.

His trip, which started in Geneva, continued to Moscow, where Rubinstein met representatives from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Mikhail Bogdanov. His trip will include Saudi Arabia after Turkey, where Rubinstein is saying “in between the lines” what roughly the U.S. State Department stance is for a solution to the Syrian tragedy. I have already had the opportunity for a brief meeting with Rubinstein, but as the meeting was “on the record” he was extremely attentive not to say anything that could be considered speculation. His views were simple and straightforward. First and foremost, the U.S. will not put up a military solution for Syria, including its own military. This does not mean that air support cannot be extended for supported armed movements, but it would be limited to this only [which in real world terms involves the illegal overt use of US military]

Secondly, Syrian President Bashar Assad has no future in Syria. No solution including Assad will be accepted [in legal terms the US have no legal standing in Syria so it is irrelevant what they want] This part is very clear. What remains unclear is whether the Baath Party, or what is left of it, will also be banned. There is definitely no hint at all that the U.S. will want a wide “de-nazification” type of sacking in Syria, as Paul Bremer did in Iraq back in 2003. Syria, very much like Iraq, has been living under the authority of a single party and a single type of highly centralized administration for decades. After the demise of the Iraqi Baathists and the Iraqi army, there was virtually no competent alternative authority to replace them. This has created a very long period of “establishing a viable administrative capacity and network,” which still has not given any promising result. The U.S. will certainly not commit the same error and would like to keep at least some of the infrastructure from the Assad regime in those people not directly involved in the killings. The Russians have probably loved the idea of keeping some of their friends from the Baath Party in the administration, which they probably see as a guarantee to keep their military naval base in Tartus. This is perhaps why, after having met Rubinstein, Russian authorities have been heralding buoyantly that there would be no solution without Assad and that the U.S. has at last come to understand it. Their way to negotiate a deal, which ultimately puts Assad on the bench but not his administration nor his Alawite elite, might need such an exuberant distortion of the deal, but will not change the fact that Assad will have no role to play in the future of Syria [that arrogantly presume the US does]

According to Rubinstein, Assad’s continued [secular] presence atop the Syrian regime [government] is exacerbating sectarianism and extremism not only in Syria, but also in the region as whole. This shows that the U.S.’s first and foremost target to establish a semblance of peace in the regions will be the removal of Assad first and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and all the other terrorist organizations right afterward. Without removing Assad from leadership of the Baath Party and what is left of the Syrian army, there will be no perspective to offer to the part of the society and armed forces that have remained loyal to Assad. They have been remaining loyal mainly because of the fear of what could happen if the status quo is destroyed. In view of what really has happened, their fears have proved to be very mild compared to reality. So the “elite” of the Syrian armed forces and population need a viable and hopeful solution to fight ISIS and to make a deal with the anti-Assad movements, mainly the Syrian National Council and Free Syrian Army.

So the [lie of the] non-military solution of the U.S. will be in fact toneutralize and calm Russia’s apprehensions for the post-Assad period by removing Assad probably through a palace coup, but maintaining his camp. In doing so, a platform can be formed where the Syrian National Council and the new “reconverted” Baath Party members could forge a deal within the parameters of Geneva Communique. Such a coalition could put up a viable alternative and army to fight and defeat ISIS and other terror organizations. From the Iraqi side, there is already a large war waged, and mostly lost, by the new Iraqi army against ISIS. The Iraqi forces that have been united under a joint command recently will need the opening of a second front from Syria to effectively combat ISIS.

Turkey’s already accepted approach to train and equip the Free Syrian Army will be implemented, but will only be effective if there is a much larger front encompassing the remains of the Syrian army. What remains unknown in this equation is the situation of Iran, which reiterates at every level its support for Assad. How would the Iranians want a deal? Their position for negotiations is very weak in the long term, but strong in the short term regarding their military support for the fighting factions.

When I asked the question of how to deal with Iran, Rubinstein smiled and answered that it would be totally speculative to give an answer within the parameters of my question.

In a way, this whole article is speculation, but I fail to see how the U.S. approach can be translated otherwise. Already, seeing the Russian and Turkish reactions to Rubinstein’s proposals, one can affirm that this is [not] brilliant diplomacy, giving every party [but those actually affected in Syria] an argument to be satisfied.

Let us do away with the dangerous lie that the ‘news’ media whounquestioningly repeat the declarations of criminal intent to commit war crimes, which are the most serious crimes known to humanity, do not know what they are doing, not least because this is always followed up with the non-existent ‘defence’ that it was all a ‘mistake’.

Many innocent civilians have died in what has already been years of observable criminal colonialism.

There is no place in this day and age for any of the language in the articles above that gifts some people power over other people’s lives, that they do not have.

Take a look at where Australian cities are and the rest of that country and you will see what I mean about desert propaganda.

nato terrorists don’t control the major cities where most civilians live

When you compare their latest finger painting (above) with an earlier one (below) with the accompanying statements made by the Turkish regime onOctober 17th 2014 you can see the mounting problems NATO really face.

the turkish proposed ‘safe zone’

There is zip, zilch, nada chance of any kind of UN ‘mandate’ of any kind.

TIMELINE:

The European NATO countries know that the second formal complaint from Syria puts a kybosh on much of their ‘UN’ propaganda, and creates legal difficulties for them and the UN itself.

NATO will obviously not have much to crow about at theirParis pow-wow on June 2nd.

Of course the ‘political’ leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood find themselves in an inescapable black hole of propaganda they have dug themselves into.

The treacherous likes of the political leadership of the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood comfortably sitting inQatar while Palestinian civilians die in Gaza in Palestine & Yarmouk in Syria, while Meshaal is trying to pretend Gazans are fighting a different enemy to civilians in Syria, are finished.

(source) zionist ‘muslims’ erdogan and meshaal are the fake syrian ‘opposition’/’islamic state’ in ankara turkey september 30th 2012

The simple truth is the one and same enemy of the people in the Middle East is long colonial Genocidal NATO who have Uncle Tom Muslim collaborators.

The political leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood who pretend that some arm or leg of the NATO enemy is their friend only causes other civilians to die.

In all legal and practical terms Khaled Meshaal is like Abbas working for the enemy.

It is a simple equation that you either illegally support NATO and it’s many collaborators or you do not.

If people like Meshaal wish to make a deal with the devil that is their business but they should not pretend otherwise, including that they are ‘resistance’ to that devil called NATO.

Quite what propaganda the US & Turkish regimes envision using and how they would in practice bomb Syrian civilians in major cities in sovereign Syria remains a mystery, that can only continue to expose the likes of Meshaal who likes to wail about Gaza being bombed by…errr…the same people.

While NATO et al are entirely ambivalent about laying waste to human life across Syria, they do not want to publicly expose who they all are, not least because that will increase resistance.

N.B: SANA (English) has been blocked in a number of countries for nearly one week now, while the NATO Palmyra propaganda has been circulating. While in some countries you might now be lucky to get the front page, the content is still being blocked.

The Press TV front line exclusive exposes the very valid point that US satellites have of course been tracking their own phoney NATO ‘Islamic State’ terrorists across an open desert without conducting any air strikes against them.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the US regime have been using their air force as part of a military support and supply line for the phoney ‘Islamic State’ who are the one and same phoney western backed Syrian ‘Opposition’

The Syrian army has launched a major offensive against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists who recently overran the city of Palmyra in central Homs province, a military source says.

“The air force struck more than 160 Daesh (ISIL) targets, killing and wounding terrorists and destroying weapons and vehicles equipped with machine-guns” on the outskirts of Palmyra and elsewhere in the province, the source said on Monday.

Various military operations are also being carried out in the areas around the al-Suknah, the Arak, and al-Hail gas fields and all the roads leading to Palmyra, the source added.

West’s Death Squad Strategy : How and Why ISIS & Al-Qaeda Became ‘Shock Troops’ of Global Powers

Posted on May 27, 2015 by Alexandra Valiente

The strategy was first revealed as far back as 2007 in Seymour Hersh’s article ‘The Redirection’, which revealed how Bush administration officials were working with the Saudis to channel billions of dollars to sectarian death squads whose role would be to “throw bombs… at Hezbollah, Motada al-Sadr, Iran and at the Syrians” in the memorable words of one US official.

But more evidence of precisely how this strategy unfolded has been coming out ever since. Most recently, last Monday saw the release of 100s of pages of formerly classified US Defence Intelligence

Agency documents following a two year court battle in the US. These documents showed that, far from being an unpredictable ‘bolt from the blue’, as the mainstream media tends to imply, the rise of ISIS was in fact both predicted and desired by the US and its allies from as far back as 2012. The DIA report, which was widely circulated amongst the USA’s various military and security agencies at the time, noted that “There is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria, and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran)” Elsewhere, the “supporting powers to the opposition” are defined as “Western countries, the Gulf states and Turkey”.

In other words, a Salafist – that is militantly anti-Shia – “principality” was “exactly” what the West wanted as part of their war against, not only Syria, but “Shia expansion” in Iraq as well. Indeed, it was specifically acknowledged that “ISI [the forerunner of ISIS] could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organisations in Iraq and Syria”.

The precision of the declassified predictions is astounding. Not only was it predicted that the terrorist groups being supported by Washington and London in Syria would team up with those in Iraq to create an ‘Islamic State’, but the precise dimensions of this state were also spelt out: recognising that “the Salafist[s], the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria”, the report noted that the consequences of this for Iraq would be to “create the ideal atmosphere for AQI [al Qaeda Iraq] to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi.” Mosul, don’t forget, was taken by ISIS in June 2014, and Ramadi fell earlier this week.

In the three years since the document was drawn up, the policy has continued relentlessly. Recent months have seen the West and its regional allies massively stepping up their support for their anti-Shia death squads. In late March, Saudi Arabia began its bombardment of Yemen following military gains made by the Houthi (Shia) rebels in that country. The Houthis had been the only effective force fighting Al Qaeda in the country, had taken key territories from them last November, and were subsequently threatening them in their remaining strongholds. This was when the Saudis began their bombardment, with US and British support, natch, and, unsurprisingly, Al Qaeda have been the key beneficiary of this intervention, gaining ‘breathing space’ and regaining valuable lost territory, retaking the key port of Mukulla within a week of the commencement of the Saudi bombardment.

Al Qaeda have also been making gains in Syria, taking two major cities in Idlib province last month following a ramping up of military support from Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. And of course, Britain has been leading the way for a renewed military intervention in Libya in the guise of a “war against people smuggling” that, as I have argued elsewhere, will inevitably end up boosting the most vicious gangs involved in the trade, namely ISIS and Al Qaeda.

So what explains this sudden stepping up of Western and ‘allied’ support for al Qaeda and co right now?

The answer lies in the increasing disgust at the activities of the death squads across the region. No longer perceived as the valiant freedom fighters they were depicted as in 2011, their role as shock troops for the West’s ‘divide and ruin’ strategy, promising nothing but a future of ultra-violent trauma and ethnic cleansing, has become increasingly obvious. The period between mid-2013 and mid-2014 saw a significant turning of the tide against these groups. It began in July 2013 with the ouster of Egypt’s President Morsi following fears he was planning to send in the Egyptian army to aid the Syrian insurgency. New President Al-Sisi put an end not only to that possibility, but to the flow of fighters from Egypt to Syria altogether. The West hoped to step in the following month with airstrikes against the Syrian government, but their attempts to ensure Iranian and Russian acquiescence in such a move came to nought and they were forced into a humiliating climbdown.

Then came the fall of Homs in May 2014, as Syrian government forces retook a key insurgent stronghold. The momentum was clearly with the government side; that is until ‘ISIS’ sprang onto the scene – and with them, a convenient pretext for the US intervention that had been ruled out just a year before.

Meanwhile, in Libya, the pro-death squad parties decisively lost elections for the first elected ‘House of Representatives in June 2014. Their refusal to accept defeat led to a new chapter in the post-NATO Libyan disaster, as they set up a new rival government in Tripoli and waged war on the elected parliament. Yet following a massacre of Egyptians by ISIS in Libya last December, Egypt sent its airforce in on the side of the Tobruk (elected) parliament; it is now, apparently, considering sending in ground troops.

Losing ground in Yemen, in Libya, in Egypt and in Syria, the West’s whole strategy for using armed Salafists as tools of destabilisation had been starting to unravel. The direct interventions in Syria, Yemen and soon Libya, then, are nothing but a means of propping them up – and last Friday’s bombings show they are already paying dividends.

A Heart-Breaking Photo of Yemeni Family Displaced by Saudi-US Shelling

Local Editor

A scene of the tragedies that are left by the Saudi-American aggression on Yemen was captured on Wednesday. The photo shows two Yemeni sisters and a brother sleeping on the sidewalk after being displaced when the Saudi warplanes demolished their house.

The elder sister appears putting her hand tenderly on the cheek of her younger brother.

Undoubtedly, this will be added to the military achievements of the Saudi war machine that exhibits unabated tyranny against armless civilians.

It may also be one of the tournaments that cost the Saudi army more than $ 500 billion to pour lava from the air on the heads of children and women, but a coward army to confront the real men of Yemen in a single land battle, shamelessly looking for rented armies to fight on its behalf.. !!

Obama and the Royals!

Monday, 18 May 2015 11:05

What a sharp contrast and contradiction when it comes to human rights principles like freedom, justice, equality and the power of oil and petrodollar to buy even presidents and officials of big countries like those of France, UK and USA!

The Saudi royals’ petrodollar kingdom of ignorance, darkness and blasphemy is indeed a flagrant example of how much petro dollar is the might and not the very simple right of every human worldwide! The Gulf Royals should be  the last to speak about democracy, freedom and legitimacy.

 The Royals forbid women even from driving cars, Christians and Jews even from entering the sacred places of God- and surely not of Al-Saud! The Royals of treason, murder, fratricide have no elections nor free point views!

According to Finian Cunningham, the Sputnik, the most repressive regimes on Earth were recently received with the finest American hospitality President Obama came out with some outlandish, ludicrous statements.

Barack Obama was hosting the royal rulers of the six Persian Gulf Arab states in Washington. First there was the VIP treatment and photo-ops on the White House’s South Lawn, then a fireside chat in the Oval Office, followed by a private meeting at the president’s mountain retreat at Camp David in Maryland, some 100km north of the capital.

The oil-rich Arab guests hailed from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Bahrain. These sheikhdoms — historically carved out of the Arabian desert by the British Empire — are among the most wealthy and the most repressive regimes in the world.

Their rulers are pampered hereditary scions who systematically curtail free speech and public gatherings, ruling with an iron-fist. In all of these despotic regimes, people are routinely flung into dungeons for daring to make public comments that might be deemed critical of the ruling elite.

In Qatar, for example, a young poet was jailed for 15 years because he wrote a poem that was mildly critical of the ruling Al Thani family, whose emir, Tamim bin Hamad al Thani, was in Obama’s company.

In Saudi Arabia, the ruling House of Saud has publicly beheaded 80 people this year alone; their blood-stained corpses were then dangled from helicopters as a warning to would-be offenders. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef was also among those enjoying Obama’s hospitality.

Furthermore, the warped version of Islam espoused by the Gulf despots — called Wahhabism — is rabidly intolerant of any other form of religion, including more conventional forms of Sunni or Shia Islam, let alone Christianity and other faiths. All are condemned as “infidels” by the Gulf Arab rulers in their obscurantist, backward ideology.

The Arab sheikhs in Washington this past week are among the foremost treasurers and arms suppliers for the myriad terror groups ranging from Al Qaeda to ISIL. These groups continue to threaten the Middle East, inciting sectarian conflicts in Iraq and Lebanon, destabilizing governments and fomenting regime change, as in Libya and Syria, added Cunningham.

The financial and armaments links between the Saudis, Qataris and other Gulf despots on the one hand and terrorist mercenary groups on the other is well documented. Even US officials have acknowledged this; for example, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was revealed through WikiLeaks disclosures to be well aware of the role of Saudi Arabia in supporting Al Qaeda-linked terror networks. So too was the former US ambassador to Iraq, Christopher Hill, who is also on record in 2010 as saying that the Saudi regime was instrumental in fuelling sectarian violence in that country.

Yet Obama regaled the Arab tyrants in Washington last week, saying that the US and the sheikhdoms are the “cornerstone of peace, stability and security in the Middle East.” The president added: “The United States and Saudi Arabia have an extraordinary friendship and relationship that dates back to Franklin Roosevelt [in 1945].”

All this was said by Obama with a straight face and sincere intonation. Which raises the question: is he a very good liar, or is this guy just really stupid? Why does the US continue to funnel billions of dollars of weapons every year to the Gulf dictatorships in the hopes that this will ensure peace and stability if these regimes are complicit in the terrorist activity that threatens the tranquility of the Muslim world?

Right now and for the past nearly seven weeks, the Saudi-led Gulf states have been pounding the people of Yemen day and night with American-supplied warplanes and bombs, including internationally banned cluster bombs that kill everything in their blast radius. Thousands of Yemeni women and children have been slaughtered in this US-backed campaign against the poorest country on the Arabian Peninsula.

The Saudi-led aerial bombardment has blockaded Yemen from air and sea routes delivering food, fuel and medical aid. The country depends on exports for 90 per cent of its food and fuel. Some 80 per cent of the Yemeni population of 24 million are now feared to be facing starvation and extreme privation. Children are dying from wounds and diseases because there is no transportation. Families are huddling in sewers to avoid air strikes.

In this desert country, diesel fuel is essential for drawing drinking-water from wells. Because of the Saudi-imposed blockade on Yemen, people are left without any drinking-water. This Saudi-led and American-backed barbarity breaks every precept of international and humanitarian law under the baseless, contemptible pretext of “protecting Yemen from Iranian-supported rebels.”

This barbarity of collective punishment meted out to civilians was condemned this week by United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator Johannes van der Klaauw.

On April 28, American-supplied Saudi fighter jets bombed the runway and traffic-control tower of the international airport in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, in order to prevent an Iranian civilian cargo plane from landing with humanitarian aid. An Iranian cargo ship, coordinated with the International Red Cross Committee, is due to dock in Yemen next week with food and medical supplies. The vessel may again be blocked by Saudi forces, thus provoking a possible war with Iran.

These are the kind of maniacal, lawless regimes that Washington considers “extraordinary friends”, who together, allegedly, maintain peace, stability and security in the Middle East, concluded Cunningham.

To Beat ISIL, Kick out the US-led Coalition

“It is time to cut these losses and bring some heavyweights into this battle against extremism. If the US-directed Coalition will not deliver airstrikes under the explicit command of sovereign states engaged at great risk in this fight, it may be time to clear Iraqi and Syrian airspace of coalition jets, and fill those skies with committed partners instead.”

By: Sharmine Narwani

It’s been a bad time for foes of ISIS. Islamic State scored a neat hat-trick by invading strategic Ramadi in Iraq’s mainly Sunni Anbar province, occupying Syria’s historic gem Palmyra, and taking over Al-Tanf, the last remaining border crossing with Iraq.

The multinational, American-led ‘Coalition’ launched last August to thwart Islamic State’s (IS, formerly ISIS) march across Syria and Iraq…did nothing.

And so Baghdad and Washington are pointing fingers, each accusing the other of being asleep on the job.

US Defense Secretary Ash Carter struck a low blow on Sunday in a CNN interview:

“What apparently happened was that the Iraqi forces just showed no will to fight. They vastly outnumbered the opposing force. That says to me… that we have an issue with the will of the Iraqis to fight and defend themselves.”

Oct. 25, 2014 photo, Iraqi security forces and militiamen liberated Jurf al-Sakhar, 50 kilometres south of Baghdad, Iraq.

Carter must have forgotten that Iraqis staved off an ISIS occupation of Ramadi for almost 18 months. He also forgot that it was Iraqis who defended and/or recovered Amerli, Suleiman Beg, Tuz Khurmatu, Jurf al-Sakhar, Jalula, Saadiyah, Khanaqin, Muqdadiyah, Baquba, Udhaim Dam, Tharthar Dam, Habbaniyah, Haditha, Al-Baghdadi, Mosul Dam, Mount Sinjar, Zumar, Erbil, Gwer, Makhmur, dozens of Christian villages in the Nineveh Plains, Tikrit, Samarra, Balad, Dhuluiya, Dujail, Ishaqi, Al-Alam, Al-Dour, Albu Ajil, Awja, Al-Mutassim, Mukayshifa, Ajil and Alas oilfields, Hamrin mountains, Baiji oil refinery, scores of villages in the provinces of Salaheddine, Diyala, Kirkuk, Anbar, and Babil – and the capital city, Baghdad.

        Iraqi army

The Iraqis have shot back. Key MP Hakim al-Zamili blames Ramadi’s collapse on the US’s failure to provide “good equipment, weapons and aerial support” to troops.

Deputy Prime Minister Saleh Mutlaq, himself a Sunni from Anbar Province, concluded that the Americans were coming up short in all areas. “The Coalition airstrikes are not enough to eliminate IS.” Furthermore, the US policy of recruiting Sunni tribes for the fight, he added, was “too late” – it is “important but not enough.”

If ever there was an understatement, this is it.

Washington’s long-stated objective of rallying together a vetted Sunni fighting force – or its equivalent in the form of a National Guard – has always served as a placeholder to avoid facing realities.

One thing we have learned from IS gains in small and large Sunni towns alike, is that the extremist group prides itself on sleeper cells and alliances inside of these areas. Sunni tribes and families, both, are divided on their support of IS. And the militants ensure that everyone else falls in line through a brutal campaign of inflicting fear and pain indiscriminately. So the likelihood of a significant, anti-IS, well-trained and equipped Sunni fighting force emerging anytime soon is just about nil.

So too is the idea of a US-led Coalition air force that can cripple Islamic State. Washington has run fewer sorties over Syria and Iraq in the nine months since inception of its air campaign, than Israel ran in its entire three-week Gaza blitz in 2008-09.

KurdsWhere were the American bombers when Ramadi and Palmyra were being taken? And why does the US Air Force only seem to engage in earnest when their Kurdish allies are being threatened – as in Kobani (Ain al-Arab), Syria, and Erbil in Iraq?

US calculations for Syria & Iraq

If actions speak louder than words, then Washington’s moves in the Mideast have been deafening.

Forget talk of a ‘unified Iraq’ with a ‘strong central government’. And definitely forget loudly-proclaimed objectives of ‘training moderate forces’ to ‘fight off IS’ across the Jordanian and Turkish borders in Syria. That’s just talk.

An objective look at US interests in the region paint an entirely different picture. The Americans seek to maintain absolute hegemony in the Mideast, even as they exit costly military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Their primary interests are 1) access to low cost oil and gas, 2) propping up Israel, and more recently, 3) undermining Russian (and Chinese) influence in the region.

Clinging on to hegemony would be a whole lot easier without the presence of a powerful, independent Islamic Republic of Iran, which continues to throw a wrench in many of Washington’s regional projects.

So hegemony is somewhat dependent on weakening Iran – and its supportive alliances.

With the removal of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the US inadvertently extended Iran’s arc of influence in a direct geographic line to Palestine, leaving the Israeli colonial project vulnerable. Former President George W. Bush immediately took on the task of destroying this Resistance Axis by attempting to neuter Iranian allies Hezbollah, Syria and Hamas – and failed.

The Arab Spring presented a fresh opportunity to regroup: the US and its Turkish and Persian Gulf allies swung into action to create conditions for regime-change in Syria. The goal? To break this geographic line from Iran – through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon – to Palestine.

When regime-change failed, the goalpost moved to the next best plan: dividing Syria into several competing chunks, which would weaken the central state and create a pro-US ‘buffer’ along the border with Israel.

Weakening the central government in Iraq by dividing the state along Kurdish, Sunni and Shiite lines has also been a priority for the Americans.

You only have to look at recent US actions in Iraq to see this unspoken plan in action. Washington’s most intensive airstrikes to date were when Kurdish Erbil and its environs came under threat by ISIS. Congress has breached all international norms by ushering through legislation to directly arm Sunni and Kurdish militias and bypass the central government in Baghdad. And despite endless promises and commitments, the Americans have failed at every hurdle to train and equip the Iraqi Army and security forces to do anything useful.

A weak, divided Iraq can never become a regional powerhouse allied with Iran and the Resistance Axis. Likewise a weak, divided Syria. But without US control over these central governments, the only way to achieve this is 1) through the creation of sectarian and ethnic strife that could carve out pro-US buffers inside the ‘Resistance states’ and/or 2) through the creation of a hostile ‘Sunni buffer’ to break this line from Iran to Palestine.

    ISIL

Today, America’s ‘Sunni buffer’ is Islamic State

General Walid Sukariyya, a Sunni, pro-resistance member of Lebanon’s parliament, agrees. “ISIS will be better for the US and Israel than having a strong Iran, Iraq and Syria…If they succeed at this, the Sunni state in Iraq will split the resistance from Palestine.”

While Washington has long sought to create a buffer in Iraq on the Syrian border, it has literally spent years trying – and failing – to find, then mold, representative Sunni Iraqi leaders who will comfortably toe a pro-American line.

An example of this is the Anbar delegation US General John Allen handpicked last December for a DC tour, which excluded representatives of the two most prominent Sunni tribes fighting IS in Iraq – the Albu Alwan and Albu Nimr. A spokesman for the tribes, speaking to Al-Jarida newspaper, objected at the time: “We are fighting ISIL and getting slaughtered, while suffering from a shortage of weapons. In the meantime, others are going to Washington to get funds and will later be assigned as our leaders.”

But why ignore Sunni groups who are unreservedly opposed to IS? Aren’t they America’s natural constituents inside Iraq?

The Takfiri extremist groups serve a purpose for Washington. IS has had the ability – where competing Sunni factions, with their ever-growing lists of demands from Baghdad, have not – to transform the US’ ‘buffer’ project into a physical reality. And Washington has not needed to expend blood, treasure or manpower to get the job done.

Last week, the government watchdog group Judicial Watch published a secret (now declassified) 2012 US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document that sheds light on American calculations in Syria.

Written just 16 months into the 50-month-long Syrian conflict, the highly-redacted DIA document discloses the following key revelations:

“The Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI (Al-Qaeda in Iraq) are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.”

“The West, Gulf countries and Turkey support the opposition.”

The Syrian government has focused its priorities on securing pro-government areas and major transportation routes, which means “the regime decreased its concentration in areas adjacent to the Iraqi borders (al Hasaka and Der Zor).”

“Opposition forces are trying to control the eastern areas (Hasaka and Der Zor) adjacent to the western Iraqi borders (Mosul and Anbar)…Western countries, the Gulf and Turkey are supporting these efforts.”

“The deterioration of the situation…creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi…”

“If the situation unravels there is the opportunity of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria, and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

The DIA brief makes clear that the escalation of conflict in Syria will create further sectarianism and radicalization, which will increase the likelihood of an ‘Islamic State’ on the Syrian-Iraqi border, one that would likely be manned by the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI).

So what did Washington do when it received this information? It lied.

Less than one month after the DIA report was published, US Secretary of State John Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this about the Syrian opposition: “I just don’t agree that a majority are Al-Qaeda and the bad guys. That’s not true. There are about 70,000 to 100,000 oppositionists … Maybe 15 percent to 25 percent might be in one group or another who are what we would deem to be bad guys…There is a real moderate opposition that exists.”

Using the fabricated storyline of ‘moderate rebels’ who need assistance to fight a ‘criminal Syrian regime’, the US government kept the Syrian conflict buzzing, knowing full well the outcome would mean the establishment of a Sunni extremist entity spanning the Syrian-Iraqi border…which could cripple, what the Americans call, “the strategic depth of the Shia expansion.”

As US Council on Foreign Relations member and terrorism analyst Max Abrahms conceded on Twitter:

“The August 5, 2012 DIA report confirms much of what Assad has been saying all along about his opponents both inside & outside Syria.”

How to fight this American “Frankenstein”

Since last year, numerous Iraqi officials have complained about the US airdropping weapons to IS – whether deliberately or inadvertently remains disputed. Military sources, on the other hand, have made clear that the US-led Coalition ignores many of the Iraqi requests for air cover during ground operations.

US-led strikes

If the US isn’t willing to play ball in Iraq’s existential fight against IS, then why bother with the Americans at all?

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is viewed as a ‘weak’ head of state – a relatively pro-American official who will work diligently to keep a balance between US interests and those of Iraq’s powerful neighbor, Iran.

But after the disastrous fall of Ramadi, and more bad news from inside Syria, Abadi has little choice but to mitigate these losses, and rapidly. The prime minister has now ordered the engagement of thousands of Hashd al-Shaabi (Shiite paramilitary groups, commonly known as the Popular Mobilization Forces) troops in the Anbar to wrest back control of Ramadi. And this – unusually – comes with the blessings of Anbar’s Sunni tribes who voted overwhelmingly to appeal to the Hashd for military assistance.

Joining the Hashd are a few thousand Sunni fighters, making this a politically palatable response. If the Ramadi operation goes well, this joint Sunni-Shiite effort (which also proved successful in Tikrit) could provide Iraq with a model to emulate far and wide.

The recent losses in Syria and Iraq have galvanized IS’ opponents from Lebanon to Iran to Russia, with commitments pouring in for weapons, manpower and funds. If Ramadi is recovered, this grouping is unlikely to halt its march, and will make a push to the Syrian border through IS-heavy territory. There is good reason for this: the militants who took Ramadi came across the Syrian border – in full sight of US reconnaissance capabilities.

A senior resistance state official told me earlier this year:

“We will not allow the establishment of a big (extremist) demographic and geographic area between Syria and Iraq. We will work to push Syrian ISIS inside Syria and Iraqi ISIS inside Iraq.”

Right now, the key to pushing back Takfiri gains inside Syria’s eastern and northwestern theaters lies in the strengthening of the Iraqi military landscape. And an absolute priority will be in clearing the IS ‘buffer’ between the two states.

Eighteen months ago, in an analysis about how to fight jihadist militants from the Levant to the Persian Gulf, I wrote that the solution for this battle will be found only within the region, specifically from within those states whose security is most compromised or under threat: Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Iran.

I argued that these four states would be forced to increase their military cooperation as the battles intensified, and that they would provide the only ‘boots on the ground’ in this fight.

And they will. But air cover is a necessary component of successful offensive operations, even in situations of unconventional warfare. If the US and its flimsy Coalition are unable or unwilling to provide the required reconnaissance assistance and the desired aerial coverage, as guided by a central Iraqi military command, then Iraq should look elsewhere for help.

Iran and Russia come to mind – and we may yet get there.

Iraq and Syria need to merge their military strategies more effectively – again, an area where the Iranians and Russians can provide valuable expertise. Both states have hit a dangerous wall in the past few weeks, and the motivation for immediate and decisive action is high today.

Lebanese resistance group Hezbollah is coming into play increasingly as well – its Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has recently promised that Hezbollah will no longer limit itself geographically, and will go where necessary to thwart this Takfiri enemy. The non-state actors that make up the jihadist and Takfiri core cannot be beaten by conventional armies, which is why local militias accustomed to asymmetric warfare are best suited for these battles.

Criticizing the US’s utterly nonexistent response to the Ramadi debacle yesterday, Iran’s elite Quds Force Commander Qassem Suleimani points out:

“Today, there is nobody in confrontation with [IS] except the Islamic Republic of Iran, as well as nations who are next to Iran or supported by Iran.”

The Iranians have become central figures in the fight against terror, and are right next door to it – as opposed to Washington, over 6,000 miles away.

If the US has any real commitment to the War on Terror, it should focus on non-combat priorities that are also essential to undermine extremism: 1) securing the Turkish and Jordanian borders to prevent any further infiltration of jihadists into Syria and Iraq, 2) sanctioning countries and individuals who fund and weaponize the Takfiris, most of whom are staunch US allies, now ironically part of the ‘Coalition’ to fight IS, and 3) sharing critical intelligence about jihadist movements with those countries engaged in the battle.

It is time to cut these losses and bring some heavyweights into this battle against extremism. If the US-directed Coalition will not deliver airstrikes under the explicit command of sovereign states engaged at great risk in this fight, it may be time to clear Iraqi and Syrian airspace of coalition jets, and fill those skies with committed partners instead.

Muslim scholars at Beirut summit vow to confront Israel

Islamic scholars from around the globe participating in a conference in Lebanon’s capital Beirut have underlined the need for the Muslim world to unite against Israel, saying the Zionist regime has launched an open war on Muslims. 

Participants, both Sunnis and Shias, at the International Union of Resistance conference in Beirut on Wednesday discussed ways to promote unity and solidarity in the Muslim world and focus on the problems facing the Islamic world. They highlighted the cultural and religious commonalities among Muslim countries and stressed the need for them to set aside their differences.

The organizer of the event, the International Union of Resistance, was formed in the Lebanese capital last year to create a unified front in the face of the Israeli threat in the strategically important region of the Middle East.

In their speeches and messages, the Muslim academics said that confronting the Tel Aviv regime has always been the top priority of Islamic resistance movements. 

The Muslim intellectuals at the conference also expressed their strong will and determination to counter the Israeli threat despite the risks involved.

The scholars pointed out that Israel is on the verge of collapse due to its brutal policies and vowed to continue the resistance against the entity until its fall. 

The academics described Israel as a root cause of economic, political and cultural problems facing Muslim nations in recent decades.

On January 8, 2015, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas called on all Islamic states to stand by the Palestinian nation in its struggles against Israeli atrocities.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 28th International Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran, Khaled al-Qaddumi, the representative of Hamas in Iran, described resistance as the only way for Palestinians to end the Israeli regime’s occupation of their lands, urging the Islamic states to throw their weight behind the Palestinian nation.

Palestinians are seeking to create an independent state on the territories of the West Bank, East al-Quds (Jerusalem), and the besieged Gaza Strip and are demanding that Israel withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territories.

Israel, however, has refused to return to the 1967 borders and is unwilling to discuss the issue of al-Quds.

The developments come as Israel has also launched three wars on Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip since 2008.

During the latest war against the Gaza Strip in summer 2014, Israel used advanced US-made arms and warplanes to kill over 2,000 Palestinians. According to the UN, over 80 percent of the Palestinian fatalities were civilians, including more than 500 children.

Israel has also repeatedly attacked Lebanon over the past decades. About 1,200 people, mostly civilians, were killed in the Israeli regime’s war on Lebanon in 2006.

Secretary General of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, has frequently said Hezbollah had both the capability and courage to defend Lebanon and that the movement’s missiles were ready to strike certain targets inside Israel in self-defense if Tel Aviv launches an attack on Lebanon.

The Israeli regime has also carried out several airstrikes inside Syria since the unrest began there in 2011.
