Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (10/14/18).
Even as the US oligarchy has utterly and unequivocally stood by and defended Saudi Arabia, and the heinous acts it commits on an almost daily basis — regardless of just how obvious an authoritarian monarchy and leading human rights violator that it is — the Saudi government has continued to strike civilian targets and infrastructure with near impunity. As Hussain Albukhaiti just reported yesterday, from on the ground in Yemen, two more buses were just bombed by US-backed Saudi airstrikes in Jabaal Raas, South Hodeidah, leaving 20 innocent civilians killed, and 26 more injured. One bus was full of internally displaced persons, likely displaced due to previous airstrikes, and the other bus was full of elder Umrah pilgrims on their way to Mecca and Madina.
What’s even more insulting to those who have lost loved ones at the hands of the US-backed Saudi coalition, is that despite how many times the Saudis claim to be “doing their best to minimize civilian casualties” and swear that most of the deaths are unintentional or mere “accidents,” their attacks on civilians only continue to increase.
One such attack on a bus largely full of women and children was bombed the same day that the Saudis pleaded their innocence at the UN, and another was hit the same day that Mike Pompeo vouched for their supposed efforts to minimize civilian deaths on the world stage. And as the excuses and claims of innocence continue, from both the Saudis and the US, just two days ago, the Saudis intentionally bombed a hospital and its maternity ward.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman himself even openly stated that he will continue to deliberately target women and children, because he wants the Yemeni people to “shiver when they hear the name Saudi Arabia.”
Yet the US oligarchy wants you to believe that they care about civilian lives, while they obfuscate their overt efforts, and that their allies, to maximize their suffering. And they want you to believe that the Saudis are “doing all they can” to kill fewer children, as if such a measure, even if genuine, were a commendable step while continuing to take innocent life.
The sad truth is that the civilian suffering is not a by-product of their war, is was always part of the plan. This is the same model used in past US-led regime change efforts all over the world. Create a situation for the average civilians that is so unbearable, by way of bombings, starvation tactics and even bio and chemical warfare, that is compounded all the more with the subsequent economic sanctions, so that they revolt out of sheer desperation and a desire for the suffering to end. This created chaos is then used as the very justification for further intervention — for humanitarian purposes of course.
As always, take the information discussed in the video below and research it for yourself, and come to your own conclusions. Anyone telling you what the truth is, or claiming they have the answer, is likely leading you astray, for one reason or another. Stay Vigilant.
