When the US supports Saudi Arabia bombing Yemen and arms them with US weapons and credibility, we become complicit to the sectarian conflict and Saudi attacks and killings of civilians in Yemen.
Prez Obama spoke at the UN today, making many deflections and deceptions of numerous issues, especially war and military issues, defended obscene military spending, and by inference agreed with the diversion of civilian resources/needs to military. Inequality and wealth distribution in America was mostly ignored except to make the astonishing claim that the global economic downturn has been "stabilized and people once again are being lifted out of poverty" - say what!? - The perpetrators of the financial meltdown were rewarded handsomely and not one was prosecuted by Obama's "Justice" Dept under AG Holder!
Endless war in the ME and empowerment of the MICC was defended and lauded, US support for Israeli/Zionist extremism and racism was ignored except for empty calls for a Palestinian state, given our silence on Israeli illegal colonization/settlements in the Occupied Territories and countless racist attacks/killings of Palestinians. Obama called for a ban on chemical weapons but not a word on the US supporting the international ban on cluster bombs or landmines, or any other indiscriminate weapon, all used by our "great ally”, Israel against civilians! Obama said Iran "violated the NPT" and "pursued nuclear weapons" but I don't recall any evidence that backs those claims up - it is true that our ally Israel never signed the NPT (along with India and Pakistan), but Obama never mentions Israeli nucs!
When a US Prez can spout such unbelievable empty rhetoric and propaganda and ignore numerous glaring issues to a world UN audience with a straight face, it's no wonder we arm and support Saudi mass killings/bombings of Yemeni civilians!
The astonishing BS claim by Prez Obama in his UN speech that "the world is more stable than it was 5 years ago" is utter nonsense and rubbish - just ask the people of Yemen! All in all a speech filled with words of deflection, distortion and glaring omissions!
