Demands for Trump to Reverse Veto Threat as House Votes to End US Complicity in Yemen

#21

In the 73 years since you off-ed yourself, Hermann, some of us common people have gotten smarter. None of the bullsh**t you listed works on us anymore. It is obvious to us that the people of Yemen, all of them, pose no danger to the USA. Yes, leaders of a country make the policy, but in the US it’s “we the people” who supposedly can change it. We have appealed to and put pressure on the Congress. Finally, they have acted on our demands and in the interest of the innocent in Yemen. Now, it is up to our President. He has German heritage and is a xenophobe. What could go wrong?

You missed out all those pissed off American’s, El Salvadorians, Nicaraguans, Guatemalans and a few nations from Africa from that containment list. But I do love the line up. And we are only in the 7th inning, a time when the game gets longer and the bench warmers well prepared to step up to the plate. The good news is the American Team is running out of balls.

The necessary first step in these issues would be that the United States would collectively have to place a value on human life - some value. Currently human life in America has no value, we measure value in terms of “net worth”, the assets minus the liabilities. Aside from economic value, we Americans actually have placed a value of zero on all human life, here and abroad. Yemeni people are poor, and have no significant economic value to us. It’s the same as the socialists in Venezuela, same as the minorities in America, same as the immigrants crossing our border, same as the welfare queens, same as in all people we hate. Tyrants like Saudi Arabia’s prince Mohammed bin Salman are fine though, because their net worth is high. Within the context of our capitalist religion, increasing shareholder value is of singular importance, value to the community is of none. Don’t you just love the Right wing.

He sure will because We refuse to do what they Fear most… Viokence against each one of the honchos that are tied to Agent Orange. So we Read and Type and spin the same bull shut while we lose ground on everything each day and whine about it…Nobody here dares to talk about a Game Plan to stop them, I’ve said it because no one ever does.

So that makes Tweetle-Dumb the world’s leading Allstate Agent?  Somehow, “In Good Hands” doesn’t quite ring true here . . .

Here’s an interesting article which predicts the “break-up and self-dismembermenof Saudi Arabia”:

New Middle East Alliance Shakes World Powers – Mar 28, 2019 - Yossef Bodansky - OilPrice

A new bloc is emerging in the greater Middle East with the declared objectives of dominating the entire Arab world, confronting and containing the US and its allies; and controlling and benefiting from the entire hydro-carbon economy, from production to transportation.

The leading members of the new bloc are Turkey, Iran, and Qatar; with Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan submitting to the new bloc.

Russian experts call the new bloc “the Middle Eastern Entente”.

The key to the success of the bloc is the emerging correlation of influence of the great powers in the af-termath of the wars in Syria and Iraq. Russia and the People’s Republic of China are ready to compromise with the regional powers in order to secure their vital and global interests, while the US, Saudi Arabia and, to a lesser extent, Israel, are the nemeses of the bloc.

… The second objective of “the Middle Eastern Entente” was to use the Arab bloc, particularly its Sunni ele-ments, in conjunction with escalation in Yemen and growing hostility of (non-Sunni, but Ibadi) Oman, in order to smother and subdue Saudi Arabia. With Saudi Arabia already near implosion as a result of the er-ratic reign of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin ‘Abd al-’Aziz al-Saud, the leaders in Doha, Tehran, and Ankara appear convinced that it would only take little pressure in order to bring about the break-up and self-dismemberment of Saudi Arabia.

The key to the bloc’s anticipated success was in its capitalizing on heritage-based trends already growing throughout Saudi Arabia. The aggregate impact of the Turkish-Jordanian and Islamist-jihadist subversion in the Hejaz, the growing impact of the anti-al-Saud tribal and jihadist movements organizing in the Nejdi highlands, and the Iran-facilitated radicalization and militancy of the Shi’ite communities in the Saudi Ara-bian east would accelerate the self-dismemberment of Saudi Arabia along traditional lines. Even if the House of al-Saud did not lose power soon, the myriad of internal problems would prevent Saudi Arabia from playing a regional rôle against the new bloc and its allies.

A large number of intelligence officials and experts throughout the Middle East concur with this assess-ment.

There must a goal beyond simple MIC greed, although that is a driver. I also look at the Saudi peninsula. The Middle Eastern and Western Asian countries all have burgeoning landlocked populations yearning for a coastline. Yemen, with its big long luxurious coastline to the Indian Ocean, was weak to being with, being a desert with low education, no power-playing allies,little industry, and a high poverty rate. What a sitting duck. Yep, everyone needs to team up. But hey, do we have to fight??? Russia stepped in for Syria and Venezuela. What will happen to devasted, broken Yemen? I don’t think it is over.

Trump will definitely see this as a Democratic effort and want to veto it. Should he do so he will be the one responsible for it. I find it the epitome if ironic acts that a man who has so persecuted the Muslim faith has involved himself in supporting a conflict over the purity of that religion. The dude sure does love to suck up to wealth.

No matter how suspicious I get, it’s never enough. So, now I wonder if Ecuador is testing to see how big of a mob will mobilize. Then maybe they’ll expel him when protesters get tired.

T’s hands are not good ones to trust for handling this issue: we USAns must stop the slaughter and starvation of Yemeni men, women, and children. And we are not nor have we been moral enough.

Hi Harry_Pjotr: Yes, America has been a nation dedicated for war forever, even if the eagle on the seal does look toward Peace and away from the arrows. However, seeing all the tornadoes, fire-tornados, blizzards and floods -----it looks like Nature is taking us on and could beat us a lot faster than any war. Still, destroying a people and its nation only adds more war fuel and climate disasters to the entire planet—wow, we are making our own blow back. : (
