this author is fast joining my list of favorites along with paul craig roberts, and fred. here she explores the facade that is our 'party' system;
A new article from the Wall Street Journal reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lied to congress about
the measures Saudi Arabia is taking to minimize the civilian casualties
in its catastrophic war on Yemen, and that he did so in order to secure
two billion dollars for war profiteers.
This is about as depraved as anything you could possibly imagine. US-made bombs have been conclusively tied to civilian deaths in a war which has caused the single worst humanitarian crisis on earth, a crisis which sees scores of Yemeni children dying every single day and has placed five million children at risk of death by starvation in a nation where families are now eating leaves to survive. CIA veteran Bruce Riedel once said that “if
the United States of America and the United Kingdom tonight told King
Salman that this war has to end, it would end tomorrow, because the
Royal Saudi Airforce cannot operate without American and British
Nobody other than war plutocrats benefits from the US assisting Saudi
Arabia in its monstrous crimes against humanity, and yet Pompeo chose to
override his own expert advisors on the matter for fear of hurting the
income of those very war plutocrats.
If the so-called
“Resistance” to Trump was ever actually interested in opposing this
administration in any meaningful way, this would be the top trending
news story in America for days, like how “bombshell” revelations
pertaining to the made-up Russiagate narrative trend for days. Spoiler
alert: it isn’t, and it won’t be.
