Starving baby in Yemen
Russia is to blame for “every civilian death” in the chemical weapons attack last week in Syria, Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon has claimed.
Sir Michael, writing in the Sunday Times, said the Kremlin was responsible “by proxy” as the “principal backer” of President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
By similar assumption, is not the British government responsible “by proxy” for the countless and scarcely reported deaths of those Houthis (Shia Muslim) in Yemen that are being murdered by Saudi (Sunni Muslim) aircraft and cluster bombs bought from a “principal backer”, the Uk? Was not the Uk government also responsible for countless murders in Iraq of innocent men, women, and children, as “principal backer” of the American oil-grabbing regime?
Mr. Trump, where were such words as yours when babies were dying by the tens of thousands in Iraq?, as RAF and American jets enforced an embargo which denied them antibiotics. They, too, died in their weeping mother’s arms. They, too, deserved your words: “No child of God should ever suffer such horror”. Or perhaps Yemeni and Iraqui (Shia Muslim) children are not so deserving; your tears only being reserved for the children of those that America and its lap-dog coalition partners (read puppets) support.
The supremely hypocritical, American-written script read out by the UK Defence Secretary is an example of intellectual diarrhoa that gushes past the brains of those espousing it.
The Uk sells aircraft and cluster bombs to the Saudis on the pretext that “the counter-terrorism links we have with Saudi Arabia, the intelligence we get from Saudi Arabia, has saved potentially hundreds of lives here in the UK.” (Theresa May, Prime Minister’s Questions). In the same debate, the UK P.M. called the Saudis murderous war in Yemen an “intervention”, and it was justified in that it was “a UN-backed intervention.”
How comforting to the grieving parents of the Yemen that their children have been murdered by an “intervention”, and that the UN (read America) sanctioned it.
What, then, of the American (powder-puff) bombing of a Syrian airfield?
It did not have UN approval, so, Mrs. May, was it not justified?
Was it nothing more than Donald Trump seemingly putting distance between himself and the Russians, in response to a Senate enquiry probing the closeness of such links? (They probably have compromising photos of him taken in a Moscow hotel).
The Saudis execute prominent Shias, such as the cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, accusing them of “terrorism”.
The Saudis decapitated, near a public road, a woman convicted of killing her stepdaughter, as she screamed, ‘I did not do it’.
The Saudis are pushing for harsher punishments on homosexuals and could even sentence gays to death.
How can the Uk, with any vestige of conscience, suck up to this most foul of totalitarian regimes?
Simple. Under David Cameron, the Uk sold the Saudis £5.6bn of arms
The government of Theresa May, seeks to increase sales.
There are hypocrites, and there are damned hypocrits, and there is even a class of hypocrit beyond these measures, and in that sublime level of weasel-worded hypocrit lives a class of people that are euphemistically given the title of politicians; a species of immoral detritus.
