Remember in 2002 when the neocons in Washington told us that we had to attack Iraq because of 9/11, eventhough Iraq had nothing to do with it?
So now Iran is being blamed for the attack on Saudi oil fields, and anonymous warmongers claim that they have proof.
Given that gjonsit’s thread from Sept. 15 is still continuing, it may not be necessary to put this up, but I thought I could add a few bits, and you’ll add more. Needless to say, Iran is getting all the evidence-free blame, Houthi claims of being the authors of the swarm of precision hits notwithstanding, nor are other possibilities.
The neocons in Washington are playing checkers, while Moscow is playing chess.
There is no strategy to help Russia gain influence in the Middle East. It just works out that way because of Washington's incompetence.
Saudi Arabia has been bombing civilians in Yemen (and covering it up) for four years. Yet they haven't come anywhere close to taking back the capital of Sanaa.
The Saudi's most notable victory was defeating the Houthi assault on the old capital city of former state of South Yemen - Aden.
What I'm listening to...
The UN Security Council received a report on the horrific, man-made humanitarian disaster in Yemen the other day.
What did the report say? That depends entirely on which news source you read.
If you live in the U.S. the report was about Iran.
For example, look at the NY Times.
You may be aware that Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition against rebels in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia's air force has done the bulk of the bombing on civilians, much of which can be described as war crimes.
