There are currently “peace talks” in Sweden...
These talks are led by Special Envoy of the genocide supporting United Nations, Martin Griffiths.

It looks like the most important action by Martin Griffiths is to pressure the Houthis to leave Hodeidah. Not suprising as the terrorist UN has so far only condemned the Houthis...
The Houthis for some reason aren’t allowed to tell their side of the story.

In stories like the following, from the “reputable” Reuters, the Houthis are made to look as the “bad guys” because they are inflexible and don’t agree to hand over Hodeidah like the UN tells them: https://in.reuters.com/article/yemen-se ... NKBN1O61F0


Griffiths at these talks doesn’t tell the Britain-led coalition to immediately stop the bombing of civilian targets, like: school buses, hospitals, energy infrastrucure, drinking water supplies, fishing boats, agriculture land and food markets...
How many Yemenis have died so far, at 1 child dying every 5 minutes, more than 2000 die every week (besides the more than 58,000 dead Yemenis that died directly from the bombs). I think 400,000 dead Yemenis is a reasonable estimate...

There are also no plans to stage elections in Yemen, with more than 1 candidate preferably, as the so-called “internationally recognised” president isn’t supported by the Yemen population.
Maybe some political experts can explain that it’s democratic that the terrorist UN decides who becomes president instead of the population.


I think that this is a good moment to give some attention to Martin Griffiths... who’s from Britain.
Griffiths is the executive director of the Brussels-based European Institute of Peace (EIP) – you have to understand “peace” in an Orwellian way to understand what kind of “peace” Griffiths works for.

He has earlier supported genocidal campaigns for the UN in Syria, Afghanistan and Libya, making sure that there came no peace or improvement of life for the population: https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/who- ... 1120969214

Here’s Martin Griffiths.

Last month, US Congressmen tried to get some media attention with a new resolution to supposedly “limit” the US support for the genocide by the “coalition”. The resolution was rejected.

At least 5 of the 37 Republican senators that voted against the resolution - Tim Scott, John Boozman, Roy Blunt, Richard Burr and Mike Crapo - got some of that sweet Saudi money in 2016 and 2017 (nothing on the UAE!).
It is estimated that Saudi Arabia spent around $27 million on lobbying in 2017: https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/11/ ... nal-Policy

The Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED) has estimated that, with an additional 3,068 people killed in November, the total number of Yemenis who have died from the violence in Yemen since January 2016 is 60,223.
ACLED estimates that another 15,000 to 20,000 were killed in 2015; this makes the total death toll since March 2015 - between 75,000 and 80,000

This doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands of Yemenis that died from “preventable causes” like starvation and cholera: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 78376.html


According to US defense officials, the Pentagon has been fueling Saudi and UAE jets, since the war against Yemen was intensified in March 2015, free of charge due to "errors in accounting where DoD failed to charge".
This means that US taxpayers have been paying for a major part of the “coalition” campaign against the poor Yemenis.

It was found out after Jack Reed, along with 7 other Democratic senators, made a specific request for information in a letter to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in March (it took 9 months to answer...). The Pentagon admitted making “errors in accounting”.
The DoD admitted in its letter:
It is clear that the Department has not lived up to its obligation to keep Congress appropriately informed or its responsibility to secure timely reimbursement.

The exact costs aren’t known yet, but according to Jack Reed likely "tens of millions of dollars" worth of fuel was supplied to the “coalition” for free.
Records show that since October 2014, more than 8.5 million gallons of aerial refueling had been provided to the UAE and the Saudis (possibly also for other operations): https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/ar ... en/577666/

Yemen truce

Post by Firestarter » Wed Dec 26, 2018 4:02 pm

I have to admit that I still don’t understand the deal made between the Yemen puppet government and the Houthi rebels…
As I still haven’t found any article from our wonderful media that explains, I’ll try to explain more or less what I don’t understand. According to the media, the deal made in Sweden is something like:

1) The Houthis will stop attacking targets in Saudi Arabia.
I think I understand what this means, but think it’s strange that Saudi Arabia is allowed to continue bombing the starving population.

2) The Houthis and Yemeni puppet government will swap some 15,000 prisoners.
I think I understand what this means, but think it’s strange that nothing is mentioned on the prisons controlled by the UAE where innocent Yemenis are tortured.

3) Fighting in the province of Hodeidah will stop.
Here it becomes too bizarre for me; there are armed forces from both sides in the province of Hodeidah. Are they supposed to simply stop fighting? Is it possible to have a ceasefire in such a situation?
Is this meant to give the “coalition” the time to prepare an attack to finish the Houthis off once and for all?

4) The Houthis will hand over the port cities of Hodeidah and Salif.
The Houthis have been successfully defending Hodeidah and if I understand correctly they are now supposed to hand it over to the puppet government and the terrorist UN: https://af.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idAFKBN1OC0FU


Since the deal was made it has been repeatedly reported that fighting has continued (it should have stopped completely on 17 December). Bizarrely it has also been repeatedly reported that now the ceasefire appears to “hold” when there’s less fighting for a couple of hours.
Obviously our wonderful media have a different “understanding” of what a ceasefire means.

Retired Dutch general Patrick Cammaert - who arrived in Hodeidah on Sunday - is heading a committee to monitor that the Houthis will conform to the truce.

Government puppet spokesman Brigadier Yahya Sariyah said that Saudi Arabia has violated the Hodeidah ceasefire 223 times from 17 December to 23 December. And why wouldn’t the coalition, with the support of the terrorist UN, continue their assault?
Street graffiti in Hodeidah shows that Yemenis blame the US for murdering Yemenis. I’m just glad that the Iranian press doesn’t expose the role of the UN: https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/12/ ... udi-Arabia


In July, Saudi Arabia agreed to lend $2 billion to the puppet government central bank office in Aden. Money has been directed away from Houthi-controlled areas where most Yemenis survive and most food imports arrive. Deputy Governor Shokeib Hobeishy said that only $340 million of that money has been used, but it was unclear how much had reached companies to import food.

Some traders say Aden favours government-held areas. One big importer said it was not possible to ship new wheat cargoes to the ports of Hodeidah and Salif due to lack of payment. The importer still waits for over $50 million in foreign currency.

The central bank is struggling to pay public-sector wages. It has access to a Federal Reserve account of $200 million, while the Bank of England, in a great example of “justice”, has frozen 87 million pounds: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-yeme ... SKCN1OJ1PU

In the latest scheme it appears that the UN, with the help of our wonderful media, insinuates that the Houthis are to blame for the starvation in Yemen...
Carefully ignoring that the coalition bombs food and drinking water, while the Central Bank of Yemen’s puppet government “forgets” to buy food for the Houthi controlled areas.

Abdullah al-Hamidi, who makes propaganda for the Yemen puppet regime, claims that at least 15,000 food baskets that were supposed to feed hungry families were instead sold on the black market or eaten by Houthi “militiamen”; he said:
Since the Houthis came to power, looting has been on a large scale. This is why the poor get nothing. What really arrives to people is very little.
No need to give the Houthis the chance to give their version of what has happened of course...

In a surprising, almost balancing move, the “reputable” AP admits that food donations are also snatched from the starving Yemenis by the coalition forces: “The army that should protect the aid is looting the aid”: https://www.apnews.com/c9fee661bfa64ca7adb02c037f93b09f


Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have hired tens of thousands of desperate Sudanese mercenaries to do their fighting. At any time for the last 3 years, as many as 14,000 Sudanese mercenaries have been fighting in Yemen.
They were paid in Saudi riyals, the equivalent of about $480 a month for a 14-year-old novice to about $530 a month for an experienced Janjaweed officer. They received an additional $185 to $285 per month of combat. Every 6 months, each fighter also received a bonus of at least 700,000 Sudanese pounds (roughly $10,000).
By comparison, a Sudanese doctor working overtime at multiple jobs could earn $500 a month...
A Sudanese critic of the government explained:
People are desperate. They are fighting in Yemen because they know that in Sudan they don’t have a future. We are exporting soldiers to fight like they are a commodity we are exchanging for foreign currency.

Most of the Sudanese mercenaries are survivors of the conflict in Darfur, many of them children. Returned Sudanese mercenaries have told that roughly 20-40% of the Sudanese mercenaries fighting in Yemen are underage (children).
Ironically Sudanese families actually bribe local militia leaders so that their children can fight in Yemen.
Thousands of Sudanese mercenaries have been killed in action by the Houthis.

Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir has been an international pariah for years. His alliance with the UAE and Saudis has eased his international isolation by diplomatic support from the “coalition”: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/28/worl ... hters.html


Most of the Sudanese mercenaries come from the battle-scarred and impoverished region of Darfur, where some 300,000 people were killed and 1.2 million displaced during a dozen years of conflict.
Most belong to the Janjaweed that were blamed for the systematic rape of women and girls, indiscriminate killing and other war crimes during Darfur’s conflict.

Last year, the Trump administration announced sanctions on the powerful Yemeni Islamist warlord Abu al-Abbas, because of working for al-Qaeda.
But Abu al-Abbas has boasted that he has received millions of dollars in weapons and financial support for his fighters from the United Arab Emirates.

In August, the Associated Press published that the coalition systematically hires al-Qaeda members to fight the Houthis.

The war on Yemen has strengthened jihadist groups both directly and indirectly: https://www.theamericanconservative.com ... -in-yemen/


The Pentagon has announced that after “accidentally” refuelling Saudi Arabia and UAE aircraft for free for 3 years; US Central Command is “in the process of seeking reimbursement from” for $331 million in fuel and flight hours: https://www.rt.com/news/446426-pentagon ... or-saudis/
