US and France Support Saudi Arabia against the Shia in Yemen: Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Syria

The governments of America and France have decided to support Saudi Arabia in its bombing of innocent civilians in Yemen. At the same time, regional Sunni Muslim dominated nations have also joined in the indiscriminate killing of Yemeni nationals based on the anti-Shia menace of Saudi Arabia. After all, events in Syria highlight the hatred of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar towards multi-religious Syria. Similarly, events in Bahrain, whereby the Shia suffer systematic persecution, was met by more support and interference by outside nations in maintaining this reality.
Before focusing on Yemen, it is clear that Saudi Arabia is the most draconian nation state in the world whereby women are whipped if not fully covered up from head to toe. At the same time, not one Buddhist temple or Christian church (or any non-Muslim place of worship) is tolerated. Likewise, the same feudal monarchs control society in Saudi Arabia and export Salafi and Takfiri militancy far and wide. Therefore, irrespective of what is unfolding in Yemen, it is clear that Saudi Arabia doesn’t have any moral authority therefore America and France should be ashamed of their behavior.
In America, thousands of people perished on September 11 because of mainly Saudi terrorists but of course political elites in Washington glossed over this reality. Similarly, thousands of American soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq based on Gulf petrodollars and the covert sectarian and terrorist ratlines of certain Gulf powers. Indeed, France is also facing a growing Salafi and Takfiri threat whereby citizens are killed by radical Sunni Takfiri Islamists, that follow the hate spewed mindsets being exported within the Gulf. Given this reality, then what threats are Shia Houthi Muslims exporting in Yemen?
Alistair Baskey, White House spokesperson, stressed: “The United States is providing our partners with necessary and timely intelligence to defend Saudi Arabia and respond to other efforts to support the legitimate government of Yemen.”
In other words, America is protecting anti-Christian, anti-democratic and anti-female rights Saudi Arabia, whereby the government isn’t elected to any major degree. At the same time, it is abundantly clear that Takfiri and Salafi fanatics are beheading and slaughtering Muslims, Christians and other faiths alike in several nations. Yet how and where did these Takfiri and Salafi groups obtain their indoctrination, military hardware and geopolitical objectives?
Obviously, without the involvement of Gulf petrodollars and the intrigues of feudal Gulf monarchs, Turkey, and Pakistan (Afghanistan and Kashmir), then this one long and growing jihadist conveyor belt could not exist to any major degree. America and the United Kingdom clearly have been involved in the sinister intrigues of international jihadi networks for decades. This notably applies to intrigues against the government of Afghanistan in the 1980s and early 1990s; in Bosnia whereby thousands of international jihadists entered this nation based on the geopolitical whims of Washington, Ankara and London; and more recently NATO forces and Gulf feudal monarchs involved themselves in overthrowing Gaddafi in Libya based on utilizing various Takfiri and Salafi jihadist terrorist groups. Similarly, in Syria it is clear that al-Qaeda affiliates and ISIS (Islamic State – IS) have gained greatly by the intrigues of NATO Turkey and enormous funding obtained throughout the Gulf region.
The above reality sums up the real menace and hypocrisy behind the words of Antony Blinken, Deputy Secretary of State of America. He reported in Riyadh that: “Saudi Arabia is sending a strong message to the Houthis and their allies that they cannot overrun Yemen by force.”
He continued: “As part of that effort, we have expedited weapons deliveries, we have increased our intelligence sharing, and we have established a joint coordination planning cell in the Saudi operation center.”
France also made it abundantly clear that they support the most draconian nation state in the world by supporting undemocratic Saudi Arabia in its anti-Shia bombing of Yemen. Laurent Fabius, Foreign Minister of France, stated France was “naturally on the side of its regional partners for the restoration of stability in Yemen.”
He continued by stating: “Concerning Yemen, we are here to demonstrate our support, especially political, to the Saudi authorities.”
Of course, France, just like Saudi Arabia, was behind (both France and Saudi Arabia – and other nations – are still behind the destabilization of Syria) mass instability in Libya and Syria. This was based on supporting various sectarian forces (Syria) and numerous different militias. Once Gaddafi was overthrown in Libya, then the same Gulf and NATO powers abandoned this nation to various al-Qaeda affiliates, countless different militias and now ISIS is also entering the vacuum.
This makes a mockery of America, France and Saudi Arabia caring about “stability.” After all, the religious mosaic of Muslims, Christians and the Druze in Syria, is only surviving because of the Syrian government remaining steadfast against Takfiri terrorist barbarity being funded against this nation. Therefore, central forces in Syria are doing everything in order not to end-up like Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.
France 24 reports: “The Saudi-led coalition said on Saturday that it had conducted 1,200 air strikes since March 26 and neutralized the air and missile capabilities of the rebels and their allies.”
Of major importance, France 24 says: “Meanwhile, al Qaeda-linked militants have taken advantage of the security vacuum to seize control of swathes of the country’s southeast.”
In other words, Gaza and the cleansing of Alawites (Syria) Christians (Iraq and Syria), Yazidis (Iraq) and the Shabaks (Iraq) – alongside horrific massacres of Shia Muslims by ISIS in Iraq, doesn’t concern Riyadh and other feudal Gulf powers to any degree. After all, it is Gulf petrodollars and the intrigues of NATO Turkey (Turkey is anti-Syria) that is responsible for the carnage in Iraq and Syria respectively. Therefore, the Saudi led bombing attacks against the Shia Houthis in Yemen – just like the weakening of the armed forces of Syria – is assisting al-Qaeda affiliates and ISIS.
Despite this, America and France are selling their democratic and secular souls in order to appease anti-Christian and despotic Saudi Arabia. This reality means that the deaths of vast numbers of Shia Houthi Muslims and Yemeni nationals doesn’t concern the elites of America, France, Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Muslim dominated nations that are supporting Riyadh. Equally important, the above nations are all involved in weakening the two most powerful military forces that are fighting against al-Qaeda (Syria and Yemen) and ISIS (Syria). Given this reality, the same forces of instability are once more involving themselves against the people of Yemen but what did the Shia Houthis do to deserve this?
