NEWS DIGEST: Trump's Yemen policy IMMORAL, counter productive
LEAKED DOCUMENTS 'REVEAL SAUDI AND EMIRATI CROWN PRINCES' SUPPORT FOR AL-QAEDA AND IS IN YEMEN'
The nine-page document was published by Egyptian newspaper al-Badil in April - before the outlet was banned by Cairo - accusing Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi's Mohammed bin Zayed of providing aid to the two extremists.
The communique - sent to Qatar's foreign minister on October 26, 2016 - outlines the minutes of communications between Qatar's ambassador to Washington and the US Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.
The New Arab could not independently verify the authenticity of the documents.
"The Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence reported that the information available to them indicated that Prince Mohammad bin Salman has been in constant communication with the figures listed in the report," the leaked notes read.
"The prince has managed, according to the Under Secretary, to assemble out of some groups loyal to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula [AQAP] a force against the Houthis.
Trump’s Yemen Policy Is Immoral and Counterproductive
Slaughter of the Houthis, indiscriminate bombing, famine, cholera — as recompense to the Saudis for the Iran deal? In his final year in office, President Obama’s foreign policy featured the bombing of seven Islamic countries by the U.S. military. Despite fears (and hopes) that President Trump would withdraw America from the world stage and institute a fortress-America foreign policy, the new guard has put Obama’s foreign policy on autopilot. The most significant adjustment Trump made was to give more discretion to his generals. The rate of bombing has increased in all seven nations.
Nowhere is this policy more craven and disastrous than in Yemen, where the U.S. has backed Saudi Arabia’s crusade to re-install Sunni general Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in power.
[do NOT INVOKE THE FACT ABD RABBU Mansour Hadi is a Sunni. THIS HAS NOTHING to do with Sunni SHIA as ALL YEMENIS are being attacked, bombed and exposed to Cholera courtesy of Israel and its Allies . HADI resigned as President after the farcical election of him being the ONLY candidate. HE RESIGNED, lran off to the Jewish Saudis and left a power vacuum. A Man who allows other nations to bomb his country, Holocaust his people is a TREASONOUS COWARD not for any office, after he has allowed over 12000 of his people to be bombed to hell and back by Israel and his Saudi Handlers. HADI and the Jewish Wahabis can all go to hell along with the Israeli/American and British Pilots murdering innocent Yemeni civilians, bombing them with ISRAELI , AMERICAN and BRITISH MADE LETHAL WMDS and unleashing their Cholera upon the poor people of Yemen.
Best thing for Hadi, go bury yourself in the cesspit you belong to] RT and Press TV are WRONG in always bringing Sunni versus Shia here and in Syria as both countries in their entirety have targeted.

UN: Yemen unlikely to get cholera vaccine as first planned
U.N. officials said Tuesday that plans to ship as many as 1 million doses of cholera vaccine to Yemen are likely to be shelved over security, access and logistical challenges, even as the deadly caseload continues to balloon in parts of the war-torn country.
The U.N. aid coordination agency said Yemen's suspected cholera caseload has surged past 313,000 and caused over 1,700 deaths, making it the world's largest outbreak. War has crippled Yemen's health system, depleted access to safe drinking water and put millions on the brink of famine.
Citing such complexities, spokesman Christian Lindmeier of the World Health Organization said that shipping vaccines "has to make sense," and that they could be re-routed to places that "might need them more urgently," such as some African countries.
How "convenient" for the Saudis, that no cholera vaccine will get to Yemen, in spite of over 300,000 cases!
have to wonder if this was what Saudi's Prince Salman "bought" with his 66 million dollar contribution last month to UN agencies, understanding, very clearly, that there was no way for this vaccine to get delivered, due to the fighting here.
Saudi Prince Salman contributes $66 million for anti-cholera campaign in Yemen
CHOLERA COURTESY OF ISRAEL YOU CAN BE ASSURED OF THAT- ISRAELI MADE, UNLEASHED BY ISRAEL through its incessant indiscriminate bombing of Yemen
Yemen cholera cases pass 300,000 as outbreak spirals - ICRC
A cholera outbreak in war-torn Yemen is thought to have infected 300,000 people in the past 10 weeks, the International Committee of the Red Cross says.
The situation has continued to "spiral out of control", with about 7,000 new cases every day, the ICRC warned.
More than 1,700 associated deaths have been reported, according to the UN.
Yemen's health, water and sanitation systems are collapsing after two years of conflict between pro-government forces and the rebel Houthi movement.
Cholera is an acute diarrhoeal infection caused by ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholera.
Most of those infected will have no or mild symptoms but, in severe cases, the disease can kill within hours if left untreated.
The Saudi and US leadership and military must be DELIGHTED with this current turn of events; fewer people to have to kill outright with bombs and bullets; just a couple of bulldozers for mass graves will be needed, as the epidemic continues to take hold here in Yemen.
And what really happened to that 66 million dollar donation last month to the UN from Saudi Prince Salman, allegedly, to ease the plight of this epidemic in a country with which Saudi Arabia is at war?!?
Prince Salman donates $66 million dollars to aid anti-cholera campaign in Yemen
Prince Salman very cynically understands that the UN, and its agencies move more slowly than do molasses in a cold January. IF he had really wanted something done quickly enough to stay the spread of this disease, this contribution should have gone to the ICRC (The International Committee of the Red Crescent, the Middle Eastern equivalent to America's Red Cross), or Doctors without Borders; both these organisations understand how to get medical boots on the ground, and quickly.
By the time the money is watered down at the UN, and bureaucratically disbursed, it will have been far too little, and far too late, but he will appear to have "done something" while the situation on the ground in Yemen simply translates into more bombings of innocent civilians; more malnutrition leading to death of Yemen's kids, due to the port blockades in Yemen; and more birth defects, stillbirths, and cancers from the Saudi use of DU in Yemen.
And one last question; I have to wonder if cholera has been deliberately placed in Yemen's drinking water, to hasten the rapidity of the spread of the epidemic?!? http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/#ixzz4mfW3fLtm
UK Profiting From Yemeni Civilians Suffering: HRW
Human Rights Watch (HRW) says the United Kingdom is profiting from the suffering of Yemeni civilians by selling arms to Saudi Arabia.
The prominent rights group made the remarks in a press release on Tuesday, after a UK High Court ruling earlier in the week declared that London’s arms sales to Riyadh were not illegal.

Intelligence Reports Suggest IS Leader Al-Baghdadi is Still Alive
An Iraqi intelligence officer said Sunday that Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was still alive.
Last month, the Russian Defense Ministry media said that al-Baghdadi was believed to have been killed in an airstrike in Syria.
U.S. officials, however, said they don't have any proof confirming the Daesh leader's death.
"Al-Baghdadi is still hiding in Syria in an area outside [the northern Syrian province of] Raqqah," Abu Ali al-Basri, the head of the intelligence and anti-terrorism department at the Iraqi Interior Ministry, told the local Al-Sabah newspaper.
JUST AS THE ‘KILLED OFF’ Al Qaeda’s Bin Laden, USSRAEL now apparently KILLS off their MOSSAD OPERATIVE AL BAGHDADI and now declares a new leader for their Zionist Gang of drugged up killers. No doubt Al Baghdadi is now walking the streets of Tel Aviv sporting a clean shaven face minus his PHONY MUSLIM BEARD!!
ISIL Leader in Hawija Proclaims Himself Emir after Baghdadi’s Death Reports
A senior ISIL leader in Iraqi city of Hawija declared himself a new leader of the terror group, adding to the state of chaos within the group’s ranks that followed reports of the death of the group’s founder, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
“Abu Haitham al-Obaidi, deputy to the ISIL's mayor of Hawija, dissented from the group and named himself a new Caliph after Baghdadi’s death reports were confirmed,” said Jabbar al-Maamouri, a leader at the Popular Mobilization Forces, Al Sumariya reported.
He explained that Obaidi is a senior military leader, and had withdrew with tens of his loyalists to the Western side of Hawija, where he entrenched preparing for a “decisive” confrontation with his opponents.
“Hawija is bracing for a bloody infighting among ISIL members, the most violent since the group took over Hawija in June 2014,” said Maamouri.
The Suffering of Children in Mosul Revealed as Daesh Is Snuffed Out
Children “lived in the dark like rats” while Daesh ruled in Mosul, an aid worker claims. Many of them had hidden from the terrorists and the ensuing war to retake the city. Consequently, they are suffering from rickets, a lack of Vitamin D and are very thin.
Experts believe these children will suffer long term psychological trauma not only from the battles that raged in the city but the day-to-day cruelty they witnessed at the hands of Daesh. The charity Save the Children surveyed 65 kids and found that they were enduring what professionals call “toxic stress”. A staggering 90% had lost close family members and the majority had nightmares whether asleep or awake
“I dream of a woman with blood all over her face,” murmured one girl aged about 10 or 11.
Another girl of the same age said:
“I have bad dreams of dead bodies.”

U.S. coalition guilty of war crimes in Mosul, says Amnesty report
Amnesty International published a report that says the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq has committed war crimes during the fight to gain control in the city of Mosul against the Islamic State.
"The scale and gravity of the loss of civilian lives during the military operation to retake Mosul must immediately be publicly acknowledged at the highest levels of government in Iraq and states that are part of the US-led coalition," Lynn Maalouf, Director of Research for the Middle East at Amnesty International, said in a statement.
The report says the U.S.-led coalition killed 3,706 civilians between Feb. 19 and June 19, using numbers from Airwars, a war watchdog group.
THE MEDIA SAYS THE US JUST LIBERATED MOSUL: HERE’S WHAT REALLY HAPPENED
“In June 2014, ISIS crossed the Syrian border into Iraq, effortlessly taking the strategic oil-rich cities of Mosul and Baiji and almost making it as far as Baghdad. Amid the terror group’s frightening victory, they uploaded images and footage of drive-by-shootings, large-scale death marches, and mass graves (following the mass executions of Iraqi soldiers).
“ISIS militants claimed massive quantities of American military equipment, including entire truckloads of humvees, helicopters, tanks, and artillery as their own. This was no secret to Washington, or even the world, as the militants photographed and recorded themselves and publicly flaunted their activity on social media.”
Was there a good reason the American military sat on its hands despite knowing full well that this was going on? As Anti-Media explained further:
No One Would Buy My Photos, So Here They Are For Free: Mosul 2017
My name is Kainoa Little, and I am a Shoreline, Washington-based conflict photographer. I was in Mosul in April and May 2017, documenting Iraqi forces as they fought Islamic State militants to liberate the city.
I tried and failed to find newspapers and wire services who would purchase my photos. But the soldiers had fed me and given me a seat in their Humvees, and the refugees had tolerated my presence on some of the worst days of their lives. They very rightly expected that I would tell their story.
The worst uncertainty for me as a freelancer in conflict isnâ€™t that I wonâ€™t be able to pay my rent; itâ€™s that no one will see the story, and then I will have failed to give a voice to the voiceless. So I have tried to share them where I can, and hopefully people can imagine some of the human tragedy and triumph playing out in Mosul.
Trump Hints at Abandoning Key Qatar Military Base in Talks With Saudi King
The latest in a series of moves by President Trump that appeared to throw a wrench into State Department efforts to calm the Qatar blockade situation saw him telling the Saudi King today that the US could well just abandon their largest military base in the Middle East, the al-Udeid Airbase in Qatar.
This is a hugely important base for the US, and that’s a big part of why State Department officials have been so desperate to try to resolve the dispute. President Trump, however, has treated this base with relative ambivalence, and in his talk with King Salman today said he was confident other countries in the region would “gladly” build the US a replacement base if they abandoned Qatar.

Trump Allies Push for US Overthrow of Iran Government
As the White House formulates its official policy on Iran, senior officials and key allies of President Donald Trump are calling for the new administration to take steps to topple Tehran's militant clerical government. Supporters of dislodging Iran's iron-fisted clerical leadership say it's the only way to halt Tehran's dangerous behavior ... "The policy of the United States should be regime change in Iran," said Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who speaks regularly with White House officials about foreign policy. "I don't see how anyone can say America can be safe as long as you have in power a theocratic despotism," he added ... Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared to endorse subverting the Iranian regime during recent testimony
|US Publishes Report on Its Role in 1953 Iran Coup
Once expunged from its official history, documents outlining the U.S.-backed 1953 coup in Iran have been quietly published by the State Department, offering a new glimpse at an operation that ultimately pushed the country toward its Islamic Revolution and hostility with the West. The CIA's role in the coup, which toppled Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddegh and cemented the control of the shah, was well-known by the time the State Department offered its first compendium on the era in 1989. But any trace of American involvement in the putsch had been wiped from the report, causing historians to call it a fraud ... The 1,007-page report, consisting of letters and diplomatic cables, shows U.S. officials discussing a coup up to a year before it took place.
Newly Released Documents Reveal CIA Motives, Tactics in 1953 Iranian Coup
Newly released documents by the US Department of State provide an inside look at the motivations and tactics used by the US Central Intelligence Agency in orchestrating the 1953 coup in Iran that toppled the democratically elected government of former Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh, reinstating the rule of the U.S.-friendly Shah monarchy ... In documents taking stock of "western assets" in Iran months before the coup took place, the CIA notes that they were stockpiling "enough arms and demolition material to support a 10,000-man guerilla organization for six months." They were also paying millions of dollars in bribes ... In the year leading up to Mosaddegh's removal and immediately following it, U.S. officials were keenly aware that one of their most important tasks was to affect public opinion through mass propaganda campaigns.
