Yemen’s American Sponsored Terrorist

Al Abdullah Saleh of Yemen

Yemen’s Tyrant:  A Terrorist Allegedly Fighting Terrorism Against America

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

–Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.”

–Barack Obama, DNC Speech, August 28, 2008

It is heartbreaking and tragic to watch innocent peaceful protesters, including women and children, throughout the Arab world being slaughtered with American weapons used by American supported and coddled tyrants who only serve the interests of the U.S. and Israel at the expense of the precious blood of their people.

According to a study published in the magazine Foreign Policy on March 31, 2011 titled “Children of the Revolution”, quote:

“Many children have died and countless more have been injured, orphaned, or displaced from their homes over the course of this year’s Arab uprisings. But the Arab Spring’s youngest are not only victims — leading chants in Cairo’s Tahrir Square to joining up with Libya’s rebel fighters to camping out in Pearl Square in Bahrain to being jailed for writing the graffiti that inspired Syria to rise up, the children of the Arab Spring are proving that the future belongs to them.

In Yemen, children have been at the forefront of protests –  UNICEF counts at least 19 who have been killed by both snipers and explosions over the course of the protests that have gripped the nation since early February — an estimated 20 percent of the total casualties. Above, a young Yemeni boy wears a headband that says in Arabic “I’m the next martyr” during an anti-government protest in the capital Sanaa on March 27”.

Yemen is the poorest Arab nation and one of the most impoverished in the world with an annual GDP/per capita of $1,300, ranking 142nd in the world, according to the CIA Fact book.  It has a population of about 24 million with 43% under the age of 15 according to the United Nations.

Yemen’s tyrant for 33 years, President Al Abdullah Saleh, has ruled Yemen with an iron fist utilizing the country’s wealth to not only enrich himself, family, and cronies but to buy and bribe loyalty of some of Yemen’s powerful tribes, military commanders, security police, intelligence apparatus, and forming his own private Republican Guard commanded by his son.

Under his dictatorship every political, economic educational, health and social development indicator has worsened dramatically.

Millions of Yemenies across the country in at least 16 of the 21 provinces in the country have been protesting for weeks demanding Saleh, his government, and his political party be removed from power.    They not only want them removed but they demand that they be prosecuted for decades of oppression, murder, disappearance, imprisonment without trial, torture, massive abuse of human rights, and the embezzlement of billions of dollars, especially from oil revenues that began in 1984 with the discovery of oil by the U.S. Hunt Oil Company.

Like all Arab tyrants Saleh has ruled under the established “Emergency Laws” which give him carte blanche authority to decide the fate and destiny of his people.

During this civil and peaceful uprising demanding his resignation many reports have revealed that Saleh is spending millions of dollars around the country to gather tens of thousands of impoverished citizens to the capital Sana to show their support and loyalty to him and his dictatorial regime.

This murderous tyrant has used military force, security police, and hired thugs to unleash live ammunition, tear gas, sticks, and stones to murder thus far close to 200 civilians, including children, and injure thousands of protesters overwhelming the country’s meager health system already deprived of qualified physicians, nurses, necessary drugs, and surgical equipment.  Yemenie physicians report that Saleh’s forces are also using internationally banned nerve gas against civilians who not only exhibit widespread neurological symptoms but often die.

Despite mass defection of prominent military officers, members of his political party, many in the diplomatic corps, even his son-in law, Saleh has refused to resign depending on the support of the United States due to his assistance in fighting Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula that has been accused of attacking U.S. interests including the attempted bombing of a U.S. airliner by the “underwear” bomber.  However, many in Yemen believe that such an entity was created by President Saleh himself to garner U.S. financial and military support.

Saleh thus far has refused any mediation or proposal that calls for his resignation.   The last mediation attempt was formulated by the Gulf nations, including Saudi Arabia, that asks for his resignation but guarantees the safe exist of him, his family, and cronies.  It is unclear if under this proposal he’ll be able to keep his embezzled billions of dollars.

True to his irrational nature Saleh even refused this plan thereby severing his last Arab alliance.

Saleh’s rejection of all mediation attempts seals his only remaining fate:  To resign under pressure or force and be arrested and prosecuted for his crimes against humanity.

Since 9/11 dictators have learned that the gateway to America’s political, economic and military blessing is to claim their alliance in its “war on terrorism”. .

Post 9/11 President Bush declared that Muslim extremists hate our freedoms and wish to end western civilization, a most irrational statement but a useful prelude to the illegal invasion of Iraq.   Is it logical that a human being born free from a mother’s womb would hate freedom and prefer living under tyranny?

Bush’s statement is contradicted by the Pentagon’s own Defense Science Board that issued a report in September 2004 requested by Secretary Rumsfeld.

The report states:

Muslims do not hate our freedom, but rather they hate our policies. The overwhelming majority voice their objections to what they see as one-sided support  in favor of Israel and against Palestinian rights, and the long-standing, even increasing, support for what Muslims collectively see as tyrannies, most notably Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Pakistan and the Gulf states. Thus, when American public diplomacy talks about bringing democracy
to Islamic societies, this is seen as no more than self-serving hypocrisy.’

Such honest assessments that challenge Israel’s hold on U.S Foreign policy and America’s blind support of Arab dictators are immediately discarded along with hundreds of similar reports into the dustbin of history never to be resurrected again.

Given the recent uprisings across the Middle East clamoring for freedom it seems to the Arabs that it’s the U.S. that hates their acquisition of freedom and not vice versa as it fears its loss of regional hegemony and the rise of Islamists.

U.S. policy in the Middle East is based on three parameters—Obtaining cheap oil which Saudi Arabia single handedly guarantees—an unquestioning support for Israel which the entire Muslim world opposes—and a blind commitment to the ill-defined “war on terrorism”.

All three parameters ensure Muslim animosity to the U.S. and guarantee recruiting success for Al Qaeda.   Sadly the U.S. has deliberately ignored an honest debate and reevaluation of such foreign policy priorities due to domestic political, economic, and military interests. .

The U.S must realize that only a truly free and democratic Arab and Muslim world can defeat terrorism, develop beneficial relationships with the U.S. given their mutual economic interdependence, and provide a peaceful end to the Israeli Palestinian conflict despite Israel’s historical intransigence.

According to the New York Times, April 4, 2011, President Obama is quietly shifting his support for President Saleh to possibly ease his exit.   If true, it’s a most welcome decision although America’s modern history has always sided with compliant dictators and never the wishes of their oppressed populations.

Whether in domestic or foreign policy the U.S. Government is held hostage to the special interests and lobbyists who write the regulations, the talking points to support them, plan the public relations campaigns and media blitz, thereby ensuring their power, wealth, and influence on government policies at the expense of the American people..   Who will a President, Senator, or Representative listen to:   AIPAC, Exxon Mobil, Goldman Sachs, Media and Telecommunication Companies, or the American public?

A corrupt government can only respond to corrupt interests, not the voting citizens.

If America truly values freedom from tyranny and the establishment of democracy around the world, than the Arab world that has only known colonial then dictatorial oppression and wars for centuries is most deserving.

In the long run the best guarantor and protector of peace in the Middle East and for the U.S. is a peaceful democratic region that in reality holds no animosity to the American people, only to America’s Israeli directed foreign policy.  On the contrary the entire Arab and Muslim world, 1.6 Billion people, respect and admire America’s freedoms and democracy, and despite being Muslim nations they have largely adopted America’s cultural trappings

Arab tyrants feign democracy and liberty for their people while in truth they are akin to Robespierre who inflicted a “reign of terror” against his opposition and people during the French Revolution.  The crimes of terror and crimes against humanity that these brutal tyrants commit against their own population is far more lethal than any that Al Qaeda has ever committed in all its years of existence.

To their people they are the terrorists, to America they are the Anti-terrorists.

One is reminded of Madame Roland’s statement during the French Revolution prior to her death:  “Liberty, Liberty, what crimes are committed in thy name.”

President Obama, the choice of freedom for Yemen and other Arab nations is sacrosanct in our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and as God’s gift to humanity.

America is much greater than its priority of economic prosperity built on the backs of the oppressed Arab peoples at the hands of its puppet tyrants.

President Obama, Yemen and the Arab world are awaiting the fruits of your Nobel Peace Prize.

Can Yemen and the Arab world depend on “change” from your “Mendacity of Hope” to your winning idealism of “Audacity of Hope” for their freedom from tyranny?

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
