Saudi Arabia ‘deliberately targeting impoverished Yemen’s farms and agricultural industry’
The Yemen war uniquely combines tragedy, hypocrisy and farce. First come the casualties: around 10,000, almost 4,000 of them civilians. Then come those anonymous British and American advisers who seem quite content to go on “helping” the Saudi onslaughts on funerals, markets and other obviously (to the Brits, I suppose) military targets.

There is substantial evidence emerging that the Saudis and their “coalition” allies – and, I suppose, those horrid British “advisers” – are deliberately targeting Yemen’s tiny agricultural sector in a campaign which, if successful, would lead a post-war Yemeni nation not just into starvation but total reliance on food imports for survival.

Much of this would no doubt come from the Gulf states which are currently bombing the poor country to bits.

Data strongly suggests that the Saudis are deliberately striking at agricultural infrastructure in order to destroy Yemen’s civil society.

In Saudi Arabia, children are indoctrinated at a young age to hate Shia Muslims, minority sect muslims and non-muslims. The state religion is implemented by state-sponsored preachers that ensure a distorted version of reality is delivered to each student. This culture of hatred is aligned with Saudi foreign interests, which include funding extremists around the world that kill Shia Muslims, minority sect muslims and non-muslims alike. This curriculum is then exported to countries abroad, where it is preached and delivered by teachers. Textbooks from Saudi Arabia are found globally, from Syria, to Pakistan, to Canada, the U.S., and U.K. Saudi Arabia funds the building of mosques and Islamic centres in western and non-western countries to promote their ideology. The result of this indoctrination is the creation of fringe terrorists groups dedicated to the decimation of Shias, and other minority sects, and of course non-Muslims. 

Despite this public knowledge, countries like the U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Spain, Pakistan and a litany of others are allies with Saudi Arabia and protect and further its foreign interests. 


“Most important, according to the Saudi foreign minister, although it is the Saudis who have ultimate authority to choose targets, “British and American military officials are in the command and control center for Saudi airstrikes on Yemen” and “have access to lists of targets.” In sum, while this bombing campaign is invariably described in Western media outlets as “Saudi-led,” the U.S. and U.K. are both central, indispensable participants. As the New York Times editorial page put it in August: “The United States is complicit in this carnage,” while The Guardian editorialized that “Britain bears much responsibility for this suffering.”

From the start, the U.S.- and U.K.-backed Saudis have indiscriminately and at times deliberately bombed civilians, killing thousands of innocent people. […]  As the Saudis continued to recklessly and intentionally bomb civilians, the American and British weapons kept pouring into Riyadh, ensuring that the civilian massacres continued. Every once and awhile, when a particularly gruesome mass killing made its way into the news, Obama and various British officials would issue cursory, obligatory statements expressing “concern,” then go right back to fueling the attacks.”

Saudi Arabia’s Assault On Yemen: How Crimes Against Humanity Profit the Most Powerful Countries in the World

“…As a country, Yemen has struggled to remain intact while combatting terrorism, insurgency, and crippling poverty. Ignored for years in its time of need, Yemen has become the focal point of generation for hundreds of billions of dollars for western world powers. Stable nations from the “first-world” originally unresponsive to the suffering of Yemeni people now stand to make a fortune through their demise…”
