Yemen: The clones of US and Western imperialism, the Saudi Arabian led Coalition, are committing similar atrocities, as those of imperialists throughout the world for centuries, with their guidance and weapons.  The whole world is watching and doing nothing.

Note by Fazal Rahman, Ph.D.   4.24.18

Some of the most horrible atrocities are being committed in the poorest country in the Middle East, Yemen, by the richest countries in that region, led by Saudi Arabia, with the support of and weapons, supplied mostly by the US and UK.  Millions of Yemenis have been displaced; their infrastructures, houses, and means of living destroyed, and are facing widespread malnutrition and famine.  It is one of the worst current multi-state terrorisms.  It is happening in front of the whole world, which is doing nothing to stop it.  Only Iran and some of its allies are opposing this assault by the Saudi led coalition, which is intoxicated with its wealth and American and Western weapons of destruction and delivery systems.  However, being bogged down in Syria, where imperialists have created another Hell on Earth, they are unable to do anything effective against it.  Yemen is a Muslim country and the colonialist and neo-colonialist atrocities against it are being committed by Saudi led Muslim coalition.  These are even worse and more brutal than those committed by Israel in Gaza.  Most Muslim countries are either silent or are actively collaborating with the Saudis, prostituted by the Saudi money.  It is one more example of corruption of Islam by modern capitalism and imperialism.  Christianity has been corrupted long time ago.  In the Islamic World, there are contradictory processes and movements at work.  While most Islamic states and governments are being corrupted and prostituted, there is diversity of reactions among the non-state organizations, with many resisting these powerfully, e.g., Taliban and their allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan,  while others collaborating with these, e.g., religious establishments in Saudi Arabia, other Gulf monarchies, and many other Muslim countries.

In some earlier articles (1, 2), I had described the dangers of escalations of wars and civil wars in Syria and Middle East by provocative military actions of Turkey, US, NATO, their so-called Coalition Forces, and foreign and domestic terrorists, financed, trained, and armed by them.  In Syria, in opposition to them, and in support of the legitimate government of Syria, which they have been trying to overthrow since 2011, the superpower of Russia and the great regional power of Iran have also intervened very effectively, and have been crucial in turning the tide in favor of the Syrian government.  All the major anti-state terrorist groups in Syria are in retreat and the Syrian government forces are getting closer to complete victory and establishment of control over all of its territory.
