In July, Saudi Arabia agreed to lend $2 billion to the puppet government central bank office in Aden. Money has been directed away from Houthi-controlled areas where most Yemenis survive and most food imports arrive. In December, Deputy Governor Shokeib Hobeishy said that only $340 million of that money has been used, but it was unclear how much had reached companies to import food.

Some traders say Aden favours government-held areas. One big importer said it was not possible to ship new wheat cargoes to the ports of Hodeidah and Salif due to lack of payment. The importer still waits for over $50 million in foreign currency.

The central bank is struggling to pay public-sector wages. It has access to a Federal Reserve account of $200 million, while the Bank of England, in a great example of “justice”, has frozen 87 million pounds: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-yemen-security-food/a-bank-divided-yemens-financial-crisis-hits-food-imports-idUSKCN1OJ1PU


Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have hired tens of thousands of desperate Sudanese mercenaries to do their fighting. At any time for the last 3 years, as many as 14,000 Sudanese mercenaries have been fighting in Yemen.
They were paid in Saudi riyals, the equivalent of about $480 a month for a 14-year-old novice to about $530 a month for an experienced Janjaweed officer. They received an additional $185 to $285 per month of combat. Every 6 months, each fighter also received a bonus of at least 700,000 Sudanese pounds (roughly $10,000).
By comparison, a Sudanese doctor working overtime at multiple jobs could  earn $500 a month...
A Sudanese critic of the government explained:
Quote
People are desperate. They are fighting in Yemen because they know that in Sudan they don’t have a future. We are exporting soldiers to fight like they are a commodity we are exchanging for foreign currency.

Most of the Sudanese mercenaries are survivors of the conflict in Darfur, many of them children. Returned Sudanese mercenaries have told that roughly 20-40% of the Sudanese mercenaries fighting in Yemen are underage (children).
Ironically Sudanese families actually bribe local militia leaders so that their children can fight in Yemen.
Thousands of Sudanese mercenaries have been killed in action by the Houthis.

Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir has been an international pariah for years. His alliance with the UAE and Saudis has eased his international isolation by diplomatic support from the “coalition”: http://archive.is/NwCnI
(original article: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/28/world/africa/saudi-sudan-yemen-child-fighters.html)


Most of the Sudanese mercenaries come from the battle-scarred and impoverished region of Darfur, where some 300,000 people were killed and 1.2 million displaced during a dozen years of conflict.
Most belong to the Janjaweed that were blamed for the systematic rape of women and girls, indiscriminate killing and other war crimes during Darfur’s conflict.

Last year, the Trump administration announced sanctions on the powerful Yemeni Islamist warlord Abu al-Abbas, because of working for al-Qaeda.
But Abu al-Abbas has boasted that he has received millions of dollars in weapons and financial support for his fighters from the United Arab Emirates.

In August, the Associated Press published that the coalition systematically hires al-Qaeda members to fight the Houthis.

The war on Yemen has strengthened jihadist groups both directly and indirectly: https://www.theamericanconservative.com/larison/the-u-s-is-on-the-side-of-terrorists-and-war-criminals-in-yemen/


Also interesting is the support by employees of BAE Systems, EADS and associated companies to Saudi Arabia between 2000 and 2016.
Job specifications from BAE Systems of February 2017, show that BAE employees continue to coordinate maintenance for the weapons systems of all RSAF’s Tornado IDS, both in training and operational squadrons.

The number one shareholder in BAE Systems is the Capital Group (also a major shareholder in other arms manufacturers) where the husband of Britain’s PM Theresa, Philip May, is an investment relationship manager.

Another major shareholder in BAE Systems is BlackRock (also a major shareholder in other companies including weapon producers) that pays Bullingdon Boy George Osborne £650,000 a year for “working” a mere 48 days.

Rothschild Capital Partners is also a major profiteer of the war in the Middle East as it holds a 2.8% stake in Lockheed Martin: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=713&start=190#p5014

So @Firestarter, I suppose you took your toys and went home like a big crybaby? Listen, I don't want the Koran posted on this forum. If that's the book you derive your spiritual knowledge from that's fine but it won't be promoted on this forum. As far as me numbing my mind it's not your concern. I will delete any post I want here and I have no problem deleting all of your content. When you think everybody around you is an asshole it's time to look in the mirror. Go cry on some other forums, jackass.

Please come back, you do great work and it should be seen. Never mind our differences.

NATO, US, Saudis and Serbia arm ISIS
« Reply #29 on: September 22, 2019, 08:43:32 am »
This looks like one of the most underreported “bombshell” stories of the year.
It shows that the Pentagon and Saudi Arabia are arming ISIS with Serbian arms under cover of NATO. The father of Serbian minister Stefanovic is also up to his neck in this scandal.
Government officials from the US, Saudi Arabia and UAE have trafficked at least 3 million pieces of Serbian weapons (mortar shells and rockets) to Yemen and Syria in the last 3 years.


The Pentagon has sent US Special forces to Yemen.
See an American soldier posing with Islamic State terrorists, who are fighting the amazing Houthi “rebels”: https://archive.is/G72nb/3609f14c3c21b98b0fb8136bb6910464360b697c.jpg

ISIS terrorists in Yemen have often been pictured with weapons manufactured by the Serbian state-owned arms factory Krusik, for example in a 27 July 2019 propaganda video, which shows weapons purchased by the US government in the hands of the Muslim extermists. An investigative reporter traced this to lot 04/18.
These 82 mm M74HE mortar shells KV, lot 04/18, were purchased by the US company Alliant Techsystems LLC (a subsidiary of ATK Orbital, USA) for the US Government. The exporter was the Serbian state-owned company Jugoimport SDPR, under contract MP00135498.
The contract MP00135498, signed 20 January 2017, for a total of 105,150 82 mm mortar shells “for the needs of the US Government” was worth $8,043,975.

The packing list for the export of 10,500 pcs was signed on 12 February 2018: http://web.archive.org/web/20190905034740if_/http://armswatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Yugo-Kru-Rev-PL-82mm-HE-GXX_10500ea.jpg

A 15 March 2018 e-mail between Jugoimport and Krusik show that the weapons exported to the Afghan National Police (lots 06/18, 07/18 and 08/18) under Pentagon contract W52P1J16D0058-0006 were shipped to storage depot 22 Bunkers, Pol-e Charki, Kabul.
The weaponsin the ISIS video in Yemen, lot 04/18, were shipped to the same address but to end user the Afghan National Army.

On 3 April 2018, Jugoimport SDPR (the exporter) sent an e-mail to the Serbian arms manufacturer Krusik to confirm the shipment on Silk Way West Airlines flight 7L9632 on 15 April 2018 from Belgrade to Kabul-Baku. Silk Way used a special NAG military call sign for this transport. This is a military call sign given by NATO for operation “Resolute Support” in Afghanistan. In other words the weapons were supplied under the cover of NATO.
Silk Way Airlines, which the US Government hired to transport the weapons from Serbia and Bulgaria, is an Azeri state-run company. In 2017, Silk Way Airlines carried out 350 “diplomatic flights” with weapons for terrorists in Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen and Africa. These flights were chartered by the Pentagon, Saudi Arabia and UAE.

The mortar shells featured in the ISIS video in Yemen, lot 04/18, 10,500 pcs., were shipped on a Silk Way Belgrade-Kabul flight for 8 May 2018 to the Afghan National Army (ANA). On the same flight also 2,406 pcs. (lot 06/18) and 2,920 pcs. (lot 07/18) of 82 mm mortar shells were transported to the Afghan National Police (ANP): http://armswatch.com/islamic-state-weapons-in-yemen-traced-back-to-us-government-serbia-files-part-1/
(http://web.archive.org/web/20190907181054/http://armswatch.com/islamic-state-weapons-in-yemen-traced-back-to-us-government-serbia-files-part-1/)


In another video, ISIS terrorists were shown with mortar shells 81 mm M72 HE KV. These are from lot 01/18, purchased by the Saudi Ministry of Defence.
As of 1 June 2018, manufacturer Krusik manufactured 11,880 pcs. of 81 mm M72 HE mortar shells, lot 01/18, exporter was the Serbian arms company GIM: http://web.archive.org/web/20190918160244if_/http://armswatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Dnevni-izve%C5%A1taj-01.06.2018..jpg

The Serbian arms company GIM was represented by Branko Stefanovic.
Branko is the father of the Serbian vice prime minister and interior minister Nebojsa Stefanivic:
http://web.archive.org/web/20190920202151if_/http://armswatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/GIM-Letter.jpg

The exporter from Serbia, GIM, signed 4 contracts in 2016 and 2018 with Saudi Arabia for the delivery of 517,000 pcs. of mortar shells from Krusik.
The importers in Saudi Arabia were 2 private companies: Rinad Al Jazira, Saudi Arabia and Larkmont Holdings LTD, an offshore company registered in the British Virgin Islands. The end user was the Ministry of Defence of Saudi Arabia.

There was also an apparent fraud involved (kickbacks and/or money laundering for the father of minister Nebojsa Stefanivic?). GIM purchased weapons from Krusik at a much lower price than normal.
See for example that GIM paid a much lower price per mortar shell than for example the state-owned company Jugoimport SDPR.


The weapons were exported from GIM to Saudi Arabia again on Silk Way Airlines flights, or by sea from the port of Burgas in Bulgaria to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia has purchased 1,286,462 pcs. of ammunition from the Serbian arms factory Krusik since 2017. This is just a small part of a covert international weapons shipment network for arming terrorists in the Middle East: http://armswatch.com/leaked-arms-dealers-passports-reveal-who-supplies-terrorists-in-yemen-serbia-files-part-3/

Re: Yemen – the ignored genocide

The Virus Breaks the Camel's Back







Saudi Arabia and civil war ravaged Yemen. And now this.


The first confirmed coronavirus infection in Yemen was identified in a 60-year-old man on Good Friday. No additional cases have been reported since then, but that can hardly be for lack of transmission, for it’s difficult to imagine a country more ill-equipped to fight COVID-19’s spread. This small Middle Eastern nation has endured five years of violence, blockade, starvation, and epidemic, and its medical system was ravaged before the pandemic began. The United Nations considers Yemen’s condition the world’s worst humanitarian crisis—and it’s a crisis to which our government contributes.

Located at the southern edge of Saudi Arabia and bordering the Red Sea, Yemen is thought to be the home of the biblical queen of Sheba, and perhaps only biblical language can adequately convey its confluence of miseries. The prophets’ mournful condemnations of violence and oppression all find expression in Yemen: The combatants’ “feet run to evil, and they rush to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, desolation and destruction are in their highways.The way of peace they do not know, and there is no justice in their paths” (Isa. 59:7–8, NRSV). Yemen illustrates all too well the way sin flows from sin (Ps. 7:14–16) and how human and natural evil can conspire in our fallen world.

When Yemen’s civil war began in 2015, it was little noticed in the United States. Widely ignored too was the Obama administration’s decision to support a coalition intervention led by Saudi Arabia to back the Yemeni government and oppose the Houthi rebels challenging its power. Then-President Barack Obama never obtained congressional authorization for US involvement in this war, as required by the Constitution, and President Donald Trump vetoed a bipartisan congressional resolution to end American involvement last year.

While neither administration permanently planted any significant number of US boots on the ground in Yemen, both backed the coalition even as it racked up credible accusations of war crimes. Washington sold the Saudi coalition weapons, including a bomb used in the Saudi school bus strike that killed 40 children. Our military’s intelligence sharing informed the coalition’s air campaign as it bombed civilian targets like hospitals, schools, markets, refugee camps, weddings, funerals, food factories, and water treatment plants.

That damage to clean water sources fueled in Yemen the largest cholera outbreak on record in world history. Cholera is a waterborne disease in which diarrhea and vomiting cause catastrophic dehydration, and Yemeni cholera cases are estimated at more than 2 million in a population of 28 million. The same poor hygiene conditions that help cholera spread will spread COVID-19 too.

But the US-backed coalition’s single most harmful tactic is its ongoing blockade of Yemen’s airports and seaports. Ostensibly intended to prevent the Houthis from obtaining weapons from Iran, it has produced famine conditions and severe shortages of medical supplies. Yemen is a desert nation that must import 90 percent of its food, so under siege, Yemen is starving. Photos of malnourished Yemeni children call to mind Holocaust victims. A Yemeni child of five years or younger dies of starvation and other preventable causes every 12 minutes.

Between war casualties, cholera, and starvation, Yemen’s medical system has long been overwhelmed. Only half its hospitals are functioning normally. Medicine and equipment are in short supply, and many doctors and nurses worked without pay until outside aid groups began to cover some salaries. There is no scenario in which Yemen can be prepared for the coronavirus. There is no scenario in which Yemeni COVID-19 patients will receive the care they need.

But there is a scenario in which the United States could stop adding to Yemen’s suffering: We could stop assisting the Saudi coalition. Politically, this should be an easy sell: It has bipartisan support in Congress and among Americans aware of the war. It would not jeopardize US security—the Houthis have only local ambitions, and the power vacuum of civil war helps terrorist organizations rather than curbing them, most notably al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). (AQAP-linked fighters have even obtained American weapons and armored vehicles flowing into Yemen via coalition forces.)

US military withdrawal from Yemen’s conflict is no guarantor of peace. It will not rebuild hospitals or control epidemics. But it would make the coalition intervention impossible to continue, at least at its current scale. That could push Saudi Arabia and its allies to reach a peace deal or long-term ceasefire with the rebels after multiple failed negotiations. And it could well break the blockade, allowing in vital food and medical aid.

Open ports and a decline in violence in Yemen would give Christians an opportunity to serve the Yemeni people in ways that are now all but impossible. A NGO worker in Yemen told me few of the aid organizations that have managed to stay active in the country are affiliated with churches. That is partly because Yemen is a dangerous place for Christians, this worker emphasized. A mass shooting in 2016 included four nuns and a priest among its victims; international Christian aid workers were kidnapped and killed in 2009; and three Southern Baptist missionaries were martyred in Yemen in 2003. The Yemeni Christian population is extremely small and subject to persecution (conversion from Islam is prohibited). That likely won’t change however the civil war concludes, as neither the Yemeni government nor the Houthi rebels respect religious freedom. Yemen needs spiritual care as much medical and economic aid.

In this pandemic and after, amid civil war and after, Yemen desperately needs the church. It needs Christians to imitate our God who “will incline [his] ear to do justice for the orphan and the oppressed, so that those from earth may strike terror no more” (Ps. 10:17–18, NRSV). It needs us to embody God’s self-sacrificial care for the helpless. Yemen needs peace, and it needs our prayers.

I had already expected that they would claim a massive COVID-19 death toll for Yemen, where more than a thousand children die of starvation every week. Why not blame corona?
A total of 26 coronavirus cases and 6 deaths are reported in Yemen, with our wonderful media getting ready to blame COVID-19 for a “devastating outbreak”.
UN humanitarian aid coordinator for Yemen Lise Grande bizarrely claims that the COVID-19 pandemic spreads “faster and faster” (the massive death toll couldn’t per chance have anything to do with the lack of food or clean drinking water could it?).

In March, the Donald Trump administration announced a drastic cut in aide to Yemen to $73 million.
This month it was announced that the United States will provide an additional $225 million in emergency food aid for Yemen.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at a press briefing that the assistance will go to a UN emergency food program in southern Yemen and to a reduced operation in northern Yemen.
Please do NOT pay attention to the fact that North Yemen is the most populated where the population is severely starved (South Yemen has relatively less food shortages): https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2020/05/yemen-trump-houthi-who-covid19-coronavirus-un-aid.html
