Media Blackout: US in Yet Another Illegal War … in Yemen

Daily Bell
Aug 27, 2011

Airstrike Kills 8 Suspected Militants in Yemen … Officials in Yemen say an airstrike has killed eight militants in the country’s south. The officials said Thursday’s strike targeted a position held by militants with suspected links to al-Qaida in Yemen. On Wednesday, clashes between Yemeni forces and militants near Zinjibar in southern Abyan province killed at least 30 militants and seven soldiers. Militants have taken control of several areas in southern Yemen during the six-month uprising pressing for PresidentAli Abdullah Saleh‘s resignation. – Voice of America

Dominant Social Theme: The US is helping its Yemeni allies fight back against the terror threat.

Free-Market Analysis: How many wars are too many? Unnoticed largely in the press of larger events and obviously downplayed by the controlled Western media, the US and its allies are pursuing yet ANOTHER aggressive, illegal war – this one in Yemen.

How aggressive is it? It is a full-on conflict that has reportedly seen SEALS come ashore on a regular basis at night to engage tribal fighters in Abyan province, this newspaper has learned from sources in Yemen itself that are in a position to know.

The US is now involved in almost innumerable wars in the Middle East, but most have been reported in one way or another. This one has not been fully vetted as it continues to expand. Unconstitutional, secretive and expanding in scope and violence, it includes the massive, violent projection of US naval, air and Special Forces into parts of Yemen.

It is no skirmish but a coordinated, daily attack against hostile forces that supposedly include a number of “al Qaeda” (whatever they are) protected by local tribesman in the south of Yemen who have rebelled against President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s regime. It involves considerable military effort and expenditure of what must be a US task force that includes sea, air and land power.

Despite the new war’s massive scope, the major media and Congress remain culpably silent on this latest war (is there any other word for it?) even though such a massive military campaign must be well known to top power players in the media, in politics, in the intelligence community and obviously in the Pentagon itself.

This war is at least two months old, but its violence and aggressiveness have remained unreported until now. It has already resulted in the death of numerous civilians, including women and children. These deaths have gone unreported as well.

It is true that there have been a number of GENERAL reports on this new conflict but the scope and aggressiveness of this new war remain unstated. Those who live in Yemen – some 25 million people – are aware that the US is operating with impunity on Yemen’s Southern flank, but the rest of the world does not know. Those in positions of power are obviously too frightened or too careful to comment.

The evil of unrestrained violence projected from what was once a US republic continues to expand; the evil of secret wars, secret violence, secret civilian deaths is a corrosive acid that eats away at civil society until the citizens of the West themselves will be exposed to the ruin they are currently visiting on other countries. The danger is not just to “terrorists” overseas but also to anyone who wishes to retain what is left of Western civilization.

In fact, the rights of those who reside in the US republic continue to degrade as the US and the West continue to pursue a phony war on terror. It is no accident in our view, but seemingly a malicious policy pursued by the world’s top banking families – the power elite – in hopes of abrogating what remain of the rights of US citizens to understand and shape the military and political policies of their own country.

It is as well an abrogation of the US Constitution to regularly invade another country’s shores without Congress holding a debate and declaring war. This is not merely a skirmish or “fly over” but a full-on military confrontation and it is one that has larger ramifications economically.

If Yemen is destabilized, Bahrain and eventually Saudi Arabia itself could become embroiled in domestic turmoil, which many observers believe could eventually end the fragile Saudi regime – the House of Saud. The Saud monarchy recently passed a law making it illegal for anyone to criticize a member of the Saud ruling family. Jail is to be the result, up to five years or more.

A failed Saud regime would likely collapse the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. The results would make the financial turmoil from the current downgrade of US Treasuries look minor, indeed. The failure of the US dollar reserve could create a world depression of the sort that has not been seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Nonetheless, a variety of forces are acting on the core of the Middle East to destabilize it. There are some, in fact, who suggest that President Saleh purposefully allowed the Southern tribes to rebel to pressure the West into supporting his failing government. But as is seemingly always the case, once the initial strategy has been implemented, the conflict spirals out of control.

What may have begun as a pressurizing strategy now threatens to destabilize the entire Southern area of Yemen and cause at the very least a schism between North and South. Perhaps this could result, as in the past, in disunion between North and South. Saleh himself came to power based on his ability to unify the North and South some 30 years ago. Now Yemen looks to be disintegrating.

The current round of military actions are being carried out in conjunction with Saudi Arabia, which increasingly serves as a proxy for US power in the region. Saudi aircraft are supposedly bombing in Abyan along with US planes. The Yemeni air force is not so involved as its pilots apparently proved ineffective in comparison with Saudi and American air power.

The secret war is being carried out in conjunction with the headless government of President Saleh who now resides in Saudi Arabia after having been blown up in a mosque in Yemen and undergoing at least six separate operations for burns and for lung and chest injuries.

Reports are rife in Yemen about the US’s newfound aggressiveness, which is over two months old but as yet unreported by a single mainstream media outlet. Not only are US “boots on the ground,” day and night a US carrier group pours missiles into the Abyan region, causing the abandonment of large parts of at least one major urban center there.

Planes are launching regular attacks from an aircraft carrier off the coast of Abyan, in addition to the unmanned drones flyover missions. This is a coordinated and massive military action and one of grave import that should have given rise to public debate in the US Congress. But there is only silence as the US military-industrial complex carries out its hostilities.

The gravity of such an engagement is obvious, given that wars once engaged can go on for years, even decades. The US is struggling with economic failure and social unrest. The addition of another apparently major war in the Middle East is a burden that citizens should willingly share if the need is great enough and the threat severe enough.

But there has been no discussion of adding yet another major war to the military actions now being conducted by the US and NATO in such countries Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and Syria.
Elite elements of the West’s military, intelligence and political establishment are entirely out of control, it would seem. The determination to project power anywhere and at any time is eroding even the frailest of constraints on powerful men who operate at the behest of the global banking establishment.

Conclusion: The purposeful degradation of civilization itself is apparently the aim of the elites. The goal is world government. Out of chaos, order. With secret, illegal, unconstitutional wars like the one in Yemen, this goal is advanced. The gravity cannot be overstated. The mounting recklessness and lawlessness of these actions provide evidence that opposition to freedom and civil society – embedded in mainstream Western institutions themselves – grow ever more bold.

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 happening 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".

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 IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out 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 #altnews 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?
