Supplying White Phosphorus to Saudis? New Claims Reinforce US War Crimes Complicity in Yemen

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Further damning the United States government's planned sale of $1.15 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia, evidence has emerged that the kingdom may be using white phosphorus supplied by the U.S. in its campaign in Yemen, according to reporting Monday by the Washington Post.

The Post reports that the evidence comes from "images and videos posted to social media."

" As a major arms seller to Saudi Arabia, the U.S. risks being complicit in Saudi war crimes."

There really is no risk at all, why?

" The Obama administration has offered over 115 billion$ in weapons sales in 42 separate deals to the Saudi's. "

As per an article I linked to , it appears the US used these very bombs on that Air strike in Syria.

Monkey see monkey do. The US can not lecture anyone on the use of these weapons given they use them at will.

Be skeptical of politicians who say they want to "grow the economy". Growing the economy usually means killing the people.


#6

True! Because Amerika's economy is the MIC war racket economy.

"Since taking office in January 2009, the Obama administration has offered over $115 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia in 42 separate deals, more than any U.S. administration in the history of the U.S.-Saudi relationship."

Considering how Nobel made his fortune, I see a sort of evil, inhumane synchronicity at work here with respect to our great be-medaled POTUS.

Wahhabists are the root of all Islamic terrorism.
The Saudi Arabian government is the Wahhabists.
Israel and Saudi Arabia have a decades long understanding and working relationship, based on a mutual hatred of Shi'ite Iran (post the Shah).
If we Americans are going to be fighting in these never ending wars in the Middle East we should at least know who all of the players are.

The US Corporations which Manufactured these bombs are stuck with what amounts to an Illegal Inventory of these bombs now that most of the world has Outlawed them.

But, if the Saudis are willing to Buy the bombs, their "people" in the Penatgon & Congress are willing to help make that transaction happen.

As a Bonus, they no longer have to Pay to dispose of a bunch of Toxic Waste.

Gifting a Nobel to Obama has made the prize a total joke.


#20

Really, that phrase "the economy" needs to be examined and not blindly accepted as a good thing. I always think of it as the economy of the top class. That's the only economy that's been growing for awhile.


#21

More than impeachment; a cell next to bush/cheney, in the same cell block as rumer, rice, clinton...for life!
Vote GREEN, World Peace!

MarkJNovitsky: Thank you for posting your important comments. Too many people are unaware of what is really happening in this country. That's what happens when "the news" is owned by 5 or 6 megacorporations, many of which are also "defense" contractors.


#23

Or better yet vow only to vote Green or write Jill Stein's name in, and failing that, not vote at all.


#24

And another reason why Hillary must not follow him as president.


#25

Who asked the US to lecture? I want them to STOP GIVING ARMS AND MONEY TO SAUDI ARABID! HEAR THAT OBAMA AND CONGRESS?


#26

Why did USA become such a world menacing rogue state?

I can answer that question for you:

Just a little of this article:
"February 1891, three men were engaged in earnest conversation in London. From that conversation were to flow consequences of the greatest importance for the British Empire and to the world as a whole.” "Three staunch British Imperialists who met in London that day, Cecil Rhodes, William Stead and Lord Esher, were soon joined by Lords Rothschild, Salisbury, Rosebery and Milner, men whose financial, political, and administrative powers set them apart."
"The above named elites drew up a plan for a secret society that aimed to renew the bond between Great Britain and the United States [1] and bring all habitable portions of the world under their influence and control."
"Great financiers frequently used their fortunes to influence questions of peace and war and control politics for profit. Cecil Rhodes was different. He was determined to use his vast fortune not simply to generate ever-increasing profit, but to realize his dream, a dream he shared with his co-conspirators. Rhodes turned the profit objective on its head and sought to amass great wealth into his secret society in order to achieve political ends, to buy governments and politicians, buy public opinion and the means to influence it. He intended that his wealth should be used to grasp control of the world, secretly. Secrecy was the cornerstone. They have since been referred to obliquely in speeches and books as “The Money Power”, “The Hidden Power” or “the men behind the curtain”. All of these labels are pertinent, but we have called them, collectively, the Secret Elite. The Secret Elite influence on education was chiefly visible at the exclusive English private schools, Eton and Harrow, and at Oxford University, especially All Souls and Balliol Colleges. This immensely rich and powerful group was given intellectual approval and inspiration by the philosophy of John Ruskin, professor of fine arts at Oxford. He spoke to the Oxford undergraduates as members of the privileged ruling class, telling them that they possessed a magnificent tradition of education, rule of law and freedom. He championed all that was finest in the public service ethic, duty and self-discipline, and believed that English ruling class tradition should be spread to the masses across the empire." "Behind such well-serving words lay a philosophy strongly opposed to the emancipation of woman, and had no time for democracy"
This cabal has succeeded and runs the world today!
