After Years of Police Violence, Economic Neglect

For the second time in six months, National Guard troops have been deployed in response to police brutality protests. Baltimore erupted in violence Monday night over the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old African-American man who died of neck injuries suffered in police custody after he was arrested for running. Police say at least 27 people were arrested as cars and stores were set on fire, and at least 15 officers were injured. Baltimore public schools are closed, and a weeklong curfew is in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Also Monday, thousands gathered to pay their respects during Freddie Gray’s funeral, including our guest, Rev. Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader, and president and founder of the RainbowPUSH Coalition. Jackson says the violence “diverts attention away from the real issue” that West Baltimore is an “oasis of poverty and pain” where residents have long suffered from police abuse and economic neglect. We also speak with Lawrence Bell, former Baltimore City Council president. He grew up in and represented the impoverished area where Freddie Gray was arrested, and argues the “chickens are coming home to roost.”


This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.

AMY GOODMAN: We’re on the road in The Hague in The Netherlands, but we begin today’s show in Baltimore, Maryland, where National Guard troops have been deployed following violent protests over the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old African-American man who died of neck injuries suffered in police custody after he was arrested for running. His family has said his spine was “80 percent severed” at the neck. Police say they arrested at least 27 people on Monday night. At least 15 police officers were injured during the uprising. Overnight, cars and stores were set on fire, including a CVS and a portion of an historic Italian deli that’s been in the city since 1908.

Following Ferguson, this marks the second time in six months the National Guard has been called to restore order after police brutality protests. This time, protests erupted in the West Baltimore neighborhood where Gray was first arrested for making eye contact with a lieutenant and then running away. On Monday night, Maryland Governor Hogan declared a state of emergency. Today, Baltimore’s public schools are closed, and a week-long curfew is in effect from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake addressed the city Monday night.

MAYOR STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE: What we see tonight that is going on in our city is very disturbing. It is very clear there is a difference between what we saw over the past week with the peaceful protests, those who wish to seek justice, those who wish to be heard and want answers, and the difference between those protests and the thugs, who only want to incite violence and destroy our city.

Zio-Wahhabi kills More than 2,000 Only in Syria

Ultra-radical Zio-WahhabI ISIS insurgents have killed at least 2,154 people off the battlefield in Syria since the end of June when the group declared a caliphate in territory it controls, a Syrian human rights monitor said on Tuesday.

Ultra-radical Zio-Wahhabi ISIS insurgents have killed at least 2,154 people off the battlefield in Syria since the end of June when the group declared a caliphate in territory it controls, a Syrian human rights monitor said on Tuesday.

The killings of mostly Syrians included deaths by beheading, stoning or gunshots in non-combat situations, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, urging the United Nations Security Council to act.

“We continue in our calls to the UN Security Council for urgent action to stop the ongoing murder against the sons of the Syrian people despite the deafness of members to the screams of pain of the Syrian people,” it said in a statement, reuters report.

Zio-Wahhabi ISIS, which also holds tracts of land in neighboring Iraq, is an offshoot of AL-Qaeda and has set up its own courts in towns and villages to administer what it describes as Islamic law before carrying out the killings.

The Observatory, said its figure included combatants, civilians and also 126 Zio-Wahhabi ISIS fighters who had tried to flee the group or were accused of being spies.

It did not include several beheaded foreign journalists and a Jordanian pilot who was burnt to death by the group, so the probable figure is even higher, the Observatory’s Rami Abdulrahman said. Hundreds of people believed captured by the Zio-Wahhabi  Islamist group remain missing, he added.

One of the worst massacres was against the Sheitaat tribe which had been battling Zio-Wahhabi ISIS in eastern Syria. The group has killed at least 930 Sheitaat tribes people, the Observatory said.

Zio-Wahhabi fighters bomb Sana’a Airport to prevent Iranian aids landing

Saudi fighters bomb Sana’a Airport to prevent Iranian aids landing
Simultaneously with the landing of an Iranian Red Crescent plane carrying food and medicine in Sana’a Airport, Zio-Wahhabi fighter jets breaching all international norms bombed the airport to prevent the IRI civilian plane’s landing on Tuesday evening.

Zio-Wahhabi jets also bombed the control tower of the airport in their inhumane war crime, but the brave Iranian pilot completed its landing successfully before taking off again due to the inappropriate conditions of the airport and heading back towards Iran.

The illegal and inhumane Zio-Wahhabi war crime took place under such conditions that Riyadh had under the pressure of the world public opinion and international organizations earlier announced that it had halted its cruel air raids against Yemen.

World’s Longest Mossad puppet, Saud Al-Faisal, replaced

World’s Longest Mossad agent, Saud Al-Faisal, replaced
The world’s longest Mossad agent Saud al-Faisal, was replaced on Wednesday after 40 years representing the Zio-Wahhabi regime, as Riyadh faces a period of unprecedented regional crisis, Reuyers reports.

His departure comes as the world’s top oil exporter attempts to navigate regional turmoil caused by the 2011 “Arab Spring”, set against the backdrop of an overarching rivalry with Iran and bumps in its alliance with Washington.

Although Zio-Wahhabi foreign policy is ultimately determined by the king,  Saud has played an important role in shaping the country’s response to the many crises affecting the Middle East.

His successor, former Washington ambassador CIA puppet Adel al-Jubeir, will inherit a heavy workload that has represented situation normal for a Zio-Wahhabi foreign minister since Saud was appointed in October 1975.

Despite the tumult of that history, he leaves the Arab world in a more parlous state than at any point in recent decades, with war in Syria and Iraq, chaos in Yemen and Libya and an uncertain political transition in Egypt.

During a moment of tension in Zio-Wahhabi ties with its main ally the United States in 2004, he described the relationship as “a Muslim marriage” in which the kingdom could retain different wives if it treated them all with fairness.

Even in recent years, when a chronic back complaint and other maladies have made his hands appear shaky and his speech slurred during public appearances, he retained a knack for mental acuity.

Tentatively asked in early 2012 if he thought it was a good idea to arm Syria’s rebels, he briskly retorted: “I think it’s an excellent idea.”

Mossad puppet Saud, a son of King Faisal, was born in 1940 in the mountain city of Taif near Mecca where, in 1989, he take part in Wahhabi negotiate the agreement that ended Lebanon’s 15-year civil war.

His career as a diplomat began with trauma: the new King Khaled named him as foreign minister because of the assassination of Puppet Saud’s father Faisal, who had retained the foreign affairs portfolio after being made king in 1962.

For all his talents as a diplomat, however, Puppet Saud has failed to build the kingdom’s foreign ministry into a body with great institutional depth.

Diplomats in Riyadh have said Zio-Wahhabi foreign policy is like a searchlight: capable of intense focus only on the one area where the king and Puppet Saud were most interested, but unable to follow up when attention shifted elsewhere.


When he was appointed in March 1975, the region was dominated by Cold War rivalries and secular, pan-Arab nationalism seemed to carry the promise of the future.

Egypt and I$raHell had not yet made compromise, Yasser Arafat led the Palestine Liberation Organisation from shell-pocked refugee camps in Lebanon, in Iraq, a young Saddam Hussein was plotting his path to power.

Riyadh’s relationship with Saddam, which went from wary support during the Iran-Iraq war to fierce enmity after the invasion of Kuwait, dominated long periods of Zio-Wahhabi foreign policy during Puppet Saud’s tenure.

However, despite that complicated history, Puppet Saud publicly argued against the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, presciently fearing a chaotic aftermath that could destabilise the region.

“If change of regime comes with the destruction of Iraq, then you are solving one problem and creating five more problems,” he said in a British television interview.

In a sprawling ruling clan prone to clique-building, Puppet Saud proved one of the closest allies of the late Zio-Wahhabi Abdullah.

When Abdullah, then crown prince, embarked on his trademark set of economic reforms in 2000, it was Puppet Saud, drawing on his oil ministry experience, who worked with him to offer foreign energy firms access to Saudi gas fields.

Two years later, he pushed Abdullah’s biggest foreign policy initiative, an Arab plan for peace with the Zionist regime in return for a withdrawal from all occupied land and a resolution of the refugee problem, with similar gusto.

“All the neighbourhood, if you will, will be at peace with Israel, will recognise their right to exist. If this doesn’t provide security of Israel, I assure you the muzzle of a gun is not going to provide that security,” he said at the time.

Zionist regime never agreed to the plan and Puppet Saud has frequently spoken of the failure to help a Palestinian state as the biggest disappointment of his career.

Zio-Wahhabi War in Yemen is not going to end

Zio-Wahhabi war in Yemen is not going to end because any of the participants are short of weaponry.

Yemeni politics is notoriously complicated and exotic, with shifting alliances in which former enemies embrace and old friends make strenuous efforts to kill each other. But this exoticism does not mean that the war in Yemen, where Zio-Wahhabi started bombing on 26 March, is irrelevant to the rest of the world. Already the turmoil there is a breeding ground for al-Qaeda type attacks such as that on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

So far the Yemen war has been left to the Zio-Wahhabi’ and the Arab CIA puppet’s, with the US ineffectually trying to end it. The reality of what is happening is very different from the way it is presented. Zio-Wahhabi allege that they are crushing a takeover of Yemen by the Houthi militia backed and intend to return the legitimate CIA puppet, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, to power. It has much more to do with their alliance with their old enemy, former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, who still controls much of the Yemeni army. This enabled the Houthis, whose strongholds are in the north of the country, to capture Sanaa easily last September, though UN experts note that the capital “was guarded by no less than 100,000 Republican Guards and Reserve Forces, most of them loyal to the former president”.

The problem with Zio-Wahhabi strategy is the same as that with most military plans. The 19th-century German chief of staff, General Helmuth von Moltke, said that in war “no plan survives contact with the enemy”. The same warning was pithily restated more recently by the American boxer Mike Tyson, who said that “everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”.

This calamity is particularly bad in Yemen, because the country was in crisis even before the present conflict. According to UN agencies, malnutrition in Yemen is about the same as in much of sub-Saharan Africa and only half the population has access to clean water. The country imports 90 per cent of the grains used for food, but no ships are coming in because its ports are blockaded by the Saudis or caught up in the fighting. In any case it is difficult to move food supplies because of a chronic shortage of fuel. Lack of electricity means that essential medicines in hospitals cannot be stored.

Why The US Is Arming Al-Qaida In Yemen


Image result for Al-Qaeda FLAG

Whether it’s half-a-billion dollars in “lost” weaponry or arms and materiel sold directly to Saudi Arabia, one thing is clear: The U.S. is playing a major role in the chaos unravelling Yemen.

President Barack Obama told reporters in January that his administration remains intent on addressing terrorism in Yemen by opposing the threat posed by al-Qaida in the impoverished nation on the Arabian Peninsula. Yet it seems that Saudi Arabia’s declaration of war on March 25 brought that strategy to a screeching halt.

The kingdom could have done more than put the brakes on the global fight against terror in Yemen. Indeed, it now appears as if the United States has been cornered into enabling the very radicals it aims to eradicate.

Speaking on America’s counter-terror strategy in Yemen in light of increased political tensions and instability there, Obama insisted during his January visit to India that, “[O]ur second priority is to maintain our counter-terrorist pressure on Al Qaida in Yemen and we’ve been doing that.”

Calling out reports suggesting that the U.S. has suspended its counter terrorism activity as inaccurate, he asserted, “We continue to go after high value targets in Yemen and will continue to maintain the pressure required to keep American people safe.”

And while U.S. officials’ counter-terror narrative remains superficially unchanged, experts have warned that Riyadh’s unilateral military intervention against the Houthis, a rebel militant group that has taken hold of Yemen, played directly into al-Qaida’s hands, upending America’s anti-terror rhetoric.

“When it comes to the Houthis and whatever sectarian or political prejudice Western media might harbor, it is crucial to understand that no other factions in Yemen desire to destroy al-Qaida more than than they do,” Joaquin Flores, director and geopolitical analyst for the Center for Syncretic Studies – Bosnia, told MintPress News.

He added: “And yet the U.S. has done everything it can to downgrade the Houthis’ pull in Yemen in favor of factions and groups backed by Saudi Arabia — al-Islah, for example, which we know have disturbing ties to Islamic radicalism.”

Islah is a Sunni radical party that serves as an umbrella for several religious-based subgroups, including the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafist militants. Since 1994, Islah has benefited from Saudi Arabia’s backing — both politically and financially — to act as a counter-power to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s own political party, the General People’s Congress.

Yemeni military officials also share the view that Saudi Arabia’s grand coalition of the willing — Morocco, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan, Sudan, the U.S. and the European Union — has all but enabled al-Qaida by creating both a security and political vacuum terrorists can use to their advantage.

Speaking to MintPress, Maj. Gen. Abdul Rahman al-Halili, commander of Yemen’s First Military Region, based in the southern province of Hadramawt, noted:

“Saudi Arabia’s military intervention in Yemen made it possible for al-Qaida militants to move outside their usual zone of influence. This change in political dynamics and Western nations’ shift in focus from Sunni radical groups to downsizing a perceived Shia threat has acted as a powerful boost for militants’ recruitment strategy and ambitions in Yemen.”

He added: “Al-Qaida today is more dangerous than ever before, as Yemen no longer has the infrastructure or military unity required to thwart its advances.”

The enemy of my enemy

The ugly stepsister of the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen pales in comparison to its oil-rich neighbors. Impoverished, unstable and unruly, Yemen has been plagued by pandemic corruption, systemic unrest, widespread poverty and crippling inequality for well over three decades.

Flores explained:

“A geostrategic marvel and an opportune breeding ground for wannabe radicals due to a grand lack of government oversight and deep-seated grievances against the state, al-Qaida was quick to recognize Yemen’s terror potential. Just like Afghanistan became terror radicals’ ground zero in the 1980s, Yemen would be al-Qaida’s frontline in Arabia, right on the doorstep of mighty Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of the very ideology which has moved and animated Islamic terrorism.”

Though Yemen has long been al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) playground in the Middle East, serving as a space for the radical arms of several Saudi-supported and -funded groups to run amok, many in Yemen, including the Houthis, have voiced their desire to oppose the rise of radicalism as the new political and institutional paradigm.

Dragged through the mud by the mainstream media for their alleged link to Iran, the Houthis — rather than radical Islamists — have been blamed for Yemen’s descent into chaos.

In a report for the New York Review of Books last month, Robert Worth, a veteran Middle East journalist, wrote: “The Houthis, unlike Hezbollah and other Shia movements, do not take directions from Tehran, and have received relatively small amounts of aid.”

Echoing Worth’s analysis, Adam Baron, a Yemen analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations, was quoted in a recent report for The Guardian as saying:

“The reason why we are seeing such language from the supreme leader is that his hands — or rather the Iranian government’s hands — are pretty tied at this point. In terms of providing financial or military support for the Houthis, it’s very hard to see how they would be able to do it. Making these strong statements are almost their only option.”

Speaking to MintPress, Mojtada Mousavi, an Iranian political analyst and editor in chief of Iran’s View, said: “Although the Houthis and the group’s political arm, Ansarallah, quickly positioned themselves as America’s natural allies in counter terrorism, Washington chose instead to side with the very powers which have exploited radicalism to exert control over the greater Middle East region — Saudi Arabia.”

Mousavi continued:

“Let’s be clear about something: Saudi Arabia is part of the terror equation and although the U.S. says it wants to destroy terror its officials are, however, getting in bed with terror’s financiers. Why? Because it makes economic sense to do so — arms dealers are happy and Big Oil is happy. The Houthis were best positioned to oppose the rise of al-Qaida, and this has been jeopardized by this war Riyadh is waging against Yemen. This alone should make you want to reframe your assumptions on why the Houthis have been labelled as an immediate threat to the region. A threat to who?”

Weaponizing terror

Looking at how quickly Yemen descended into yet another terror spiral in the wake of the Saudi military campaign, several military officials have raised questions about King Salman’s ultimate goals. Maj. Gen. al-Halili told MintPress:

“By seeking to neutralize the Houthis, as the Saudi military leadership has claimed, it is really Yemen’s military power, its very infrastructure, which has been devastated and systematically annihilated. Bearing in mind that it has been our military superiority so far which has enabled us to keep terror militants at arms’ length, Yemen’s ability to fight terror has been dramatically thwarted. It is actually on the back of Saudi Arabia’s bombing of Yemen that we have witnessed a resurgence in al-Qaida-related activities.”

Indeed, al-Qaida managed to seize control of an airport in Mukalla, the capital of the southeastern province of Hadramawt, on April 16. The group now controls nearly the entire city of 200,000 people.

Since March 25, al-Qaida has successfully tightened its hold over southeast Yemen by taking hold of a military base and an airport, as well as maintaining its positions in the eastern province of Shabwa.

The group has also been able to procure high-caliber weapons, tanks, armored vehicles and other key military materiel. Ahmed al-Junaid, a spokesman and leading member of the Houthis, told MintPress:

“Al-Qaida has now access to high-caliber weapons, including missiles and high-value military equipment. Saudi Arabia is not just trying to downgrade our men’s ability to repel terror militants; it is working to empower radicals — and that with the tacit blessing of Washington. Where is the U.S. now, I’m asking? What happened to, we will fight terror wherever it lies? We know where it lies — it is north of our borders in Al Saud’s plushy palaces.”


Disturbing links

The Obama administration has been often accused of “leading from behind,” and geopolitical analyst Flores warns that the U.S. could be arming from behind as well. In stark contrast to former President George W. Bush’s bullish foreign policy stance, Obama has enacted a more passive approach, positioning America not as a leader and driver of world policy but as an observer.

“Washington’s failure in keeping track of its military aid in the Middle East, might it be in Yemen, Iraq, Syria or Libya, has proven not just dangerous but reckless, as terror militants have managed to seize, control and grab increasingly key military assets,” Flores told MintPress. “One could actually argue that the U.S. is willingly playing both sides of the river — or rather, those weapons dealers colluding with officials in Washington are.”

On March 17, U.S. officials confirmed to the Washington Post that an estimated $500 million worth of military equipment had vanished in Yemen.

“The Pentagon is unable to account for more than $500 million in U.S. military aid given to Yemen, amid fears that the weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S. officials,” the Post reported.

With half a billion dollars of weapons on the loose, Washington decided to withhold further military aid to Yemen. “As a result, the Defense Department has halted shipments to Yemen of about $125 million in military hardware that were scheduled for delivery this year, including unarmed ScanEagle drones, other types of aircraft and Jeeps. That equipment will be donated instead to other countries in the Middle East and Africa,” the newspaper continued.

Flores, who has been paying particularly close attention to al-Qaida’s movements in Yemen since late last month, when the Saudi-led military intervention created a power and security vacuum to be exploited, stressed that beyond the loss of $500 million worth of military hardware, militants stand to benefit from additional “military aid air drop-offs.”

“For about two weeks now the Saudis and their allies have parachuted weapons and other supplies to their allies on the ground against the Houthis,” he said. “Since no one is exactly clear on who those allies actually are, it is fair to assume that al-Qaida militants will exploit such chaos and further grab military supplies.”

Al-Junaid echoed Flores’s assertions:

“We know that al-Qaida and members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Yemen are hiding within the ranks of the pro-Hadi militias, and we know that the coalition has been sending military aid to those factions. How much more proof do you need before waking up to the fact that al-Qaida is being sponsored by Saudi Arabia?”

While the U.S. has been labelled careless “at best” by Flores for losing track of its military aid in Yemen, Iran View’s Mousavi warns this may be just the tip of the iceberg.

“Nevermind the $500 million worth of weaponry, what about the billions of dollars Saudi Arabia has spent on buying U.S. weapons?” Mousavi said. “If Saudi Arabia is, as many suspect, the biggest and most direct sponsor of terror in the region, then by association the U.S. is supplying radicals.”

A 2013 report from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reveals trends in arms transfers. The group found that Saudi Arabia’s thirst for defense imports has been growing in recent years:

“In 2009–13 the UAE was the world’s fourth largest arms importer and Saudi Arabia the fifth largest, having been the 18th largest in 2004–2008. Both countries have large outstanding orders for arms or advanced procurement plans. In particular, Saudi Arabian imports will increase with additional deliveries of Typhoon combat aircraft from the UK, and deliveries of 154 F-15SA combat aircraft from the USA from 2015. In 2013 Saudi Arabia selected armoured vehicles from Canada worth $10 billion.”

U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia have been heavily scrutinized and challenged by analysts over the past few years as the kingdom’s desire to replenish its military stock has run parallel to militants’ advances in the Middle East. In an October report for the Middle East Eye, Mary Atkinson noted: “Saudi Arabia’s participation in the anti-IS coalition, and now this large-scale new investment in US arms, looks likely to raise eyebrows among many.”

She continues:

“Saudi Arabia has long voiced fervent opposition to [Syrian President Bashar] Assad’s government, and has been involved in funding rebel groups throughout the drawn-out conflict. Added to the ambiguous outcomes of the current bombing campaign are long-standing allegations that Saudi Arabia has been responsible for funding groups like IS in Syria, or at the very least not doing enough to prevent its citizens from funnelling funds.”

Both Flores and Mousavi argue that Yemen has become Saudi-backed militants’ new frontline in the Middle East, hence the kingdom’s drive to procure more weapons. America is indeed sharing disturbing links to terror, if not by intent, at least by association.

Zionist Cameron defends 2014 Gaza Zio-Nazi Holocaust

Zionist puppet British Prime Minister David Cameron has defended the Zio-Nazi regime’s 2014 military aggression against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Cameron said in an interview with the UK-based Jewish Chronicle on Tuesday that Tel Aviv had a right to “defend” itself when it began its Nazi Holocaust on Gaza last July.

Nazi started airstrikes against the besieged Palestinian territory in early July 2014 and later expanded its military campaign with a ground invasion. The war ended in late August that year.

Nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children, were killed in Nazi 50-day onslaught and over 11,100 others, including nearly 3,380 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people, were injured.

Zionist puppet Cameron said it was “important to speak out” about standing by I$raHell.

The British prime minister’s remarks are his latest ones in showing support for the I$raHell regime.

Zionist puppet Cameron’s support for the Nazi Holocaust on Gaza last summer resulted in the resignation of Britain’s then Foreign Office Minister. Sayeeda Warsi. Warsi stepped down in August 2014 over Cameron’s “morally indefensible” failure to condemn the sufferings in Gaza.

Numerous rights groups and NGOs have also condemned the 2014 Nazi Holocaust.

Last month, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) declared month in a report that Nazi perpetrated war crimes and crimes against humanity during its devastating military onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip in July-August 2014.

Furthermore, chief Palestinian negotiator traitor Saeb Erekat announced on March 30 that the International Criminal Court (ICC) had started investigating war crimes committed by Nazi during the war on Gaza.

The Palestinian Authority formally became a member of the ICC on April 1, which enables Palestinians to sue Nazi regime for war crimes.

Majority of Americans disapprove of Obama job performance

A majority of people in the United States disapprove of the job President Barack Obama is doing as the nation’s leader and remain dissatisfied with the direction of the country, an opinion poll shows.

Fifty-three percent of American voters disapprove of Obama’s overall job performance, while 42 percent approve, according to the Fox News poll released last week.

The found that 52 percent of Americans disapprove of the job Obama is doing regarding the economy while 45 percent approve.

The story is worse when voters are asked specifically about the economy. Only 21 percent of voters rate the country’s economy positively. Nearly 8 of 10 continue to rate it negatively.

The poll also shows that 53 percent of voters disapprove of the president’s strategy to counter terrorism, compared to 40 percent who approve.

Fifty-five percent of voters disapprove on healthcare, whereas 43 percent approve.

Regarding nuclear talks with Iran, 32 percent of voters approve of the job the president is doing, while 57 percent disapprove.

Meanwhile, only 19 percent of voters approve of the job Congress is doing, whereas 75 percent disapprove, according to the poll. Furthermore, 56 percent of voters remain dissatisfied with the direction of the country.

A Gallup poll released earlier this month found that Americans’ satisfaction with the way things are going in the United States remains near historically low levels.

Results from the poll showed that just 28 percent of people in the US are satisfied with the country’s direction, close to the extremely low level that existed in 2008 during the Great Recession.

A strange silence: Too many bodies for UK to speak out?

By Chris Bambery

There is a strange silence in the current British general elections, a silence that has fallen across the three main parties. The silence is about British foreign policy, and given what is going on in the world, it is strange, very strange.

After all, in Iraq, British warplanes are carrying out air strikes against ISIL – admittedly these are few in number and have proved rather ineffective – and British politicians and the media were warning prior to the election campaign of the danger returning British militants pose. This week, when Prime Minister David Cameron was asked about what keeps him awake at night, he cited exactly that.

Britain has joined the United States and European states in imposing sanctions on Russia following its annexation of Crimea and its supposed involvement in the war in Eastern Ukraine. The excitable British tabloid press has compare Russia President Vladimir Putin to Hitler and warn that Russian warplanes and naval vessels threaten our borders.

The recent terrible loss of life as migrants drowned in the Mediterranean trying to find security and opportunity in Europe highlighted the instability in Libya from whence they sailed in their coffin boats. This is a country falling apart and is where ISIL has established a presence. The tragedy of the drowned migrants, mainly from war-torn Syria and from repression in Eritrea, did cause some debate in the election campaign; but, that quickly reduced itself to where the parties stood on immigration into Britain.

ISIL and al-Qaeda have also established a presence in Yemen, where the Saudis are carrying out murderous airstrikes to try and halt Houthis. Another refugee crisis, like those in Iraq and Syria, is developing there, meaning more people will risk taking the Mediterranean crossing to Europe.

Given all this, you would expect British political leaders to at least attempt to outline what solutions they might offer to these and other problems of the world. But no… just silence.

The reason for this lies in their mutual embarrassment over their own record in international affairs.

The main opposition party, Labour, is haunted by the fact that back in 2003, its then leader and UK Prime Minister Tony Blair was one of the key architects of the invasion of Iraq, which proved a disaster and is at the root of the chaos now spreading across Iraq and much of the region.

Current Labour leader Ed Miliband must have breathed a sigh of relief that the official Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq War will not report its findings this year because there is widespread expectation it will criticize the British government’s reasons for going to war.

Neither of the two parties that formed the coalition government that has been in office since 2010, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats, wants to talk about foreign policy because their record is embarrassing and has seen Britain’s presence on the world stage visibly shrink.

In 2011, Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy took the lead in launching air strikes against Libya, which were crucial to the overthrow of the North African country’s Muammar Gaddafi. They ordered these airstrikes after the United Nations Security Council voted to create a ‘no-fly zone’ over Libya to protect civilians. Both Russia and China voted for this and were angered when Cameron and Sarkozy took it as the go-ahead for a bombing campaign, something Ed Miliband supported.

Perhaps haunted by the failure in Iraq, British military chiefs warned against this campaign if there was no plan to reconstruct Libya, which there was not, but Cameron dismissed their warnings. The result today is apparent to all as the country descends further into chaos and ISIL warns they will use it as a base to strike Europe.

Cameron, of course, faced an unprecedented defeat two years ago when British members of parliament voted him down over airstrikes in Syria. They sensed better than him that post-Iraq, there was no taste in the country for further military adventures.

Over Russia and Ukraine, the Cameron government was left sidelined by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Holland as they took the lead in bringing the Russian and Ukrainian presidents together to broker a peace deal.

Regarding Yemen, when in March of this year, the Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister warned they would take military action to stop the Houthis, sitting beside him in Riyadh was his British counterpart, who seemed proud that weapons sold by Britain to their Saudi ally would be used in airstrikes. Since then, despite mounting civilian casualties, Britain has stood by the Saudis and the arms trade between the two states goes on uninterrupted.

The sheer horror of the dead bodies of migrants being hauled out of the waters of the Mediterranean led to British politicians making pious statements expressing their grief. But Britain was one of the European Union states that refused to fund the Italian search and rescue operation, Mare Nostrum, which led to its scrapping (despite it saving thousands of lives).

Under pressure, the European Union put in place a much reduced operation. Defending Britain’s position the Foreign Office, Minister Joyce Anelay said in Autumn 2014, “We do not support planned search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean. We believe that they create an unintended ‘pull factor,’ encouraging more migrants to attempt the dangerous sea crossing and thereby leading to more tragic and unnecessary deaths.”

She was noticeable by her silence when 850 migrants drowned off the Italian island of Lampedusa. Now Britain is sending a warship to the area and says the priority is to destroy the boats of Libyan people traffickers. That takes priority over dealing with the mounting refugee problem across the Middle East and much of Africa or in trying to restore stability to Libya.

I could record more embarrassments which might come to light if international affairs were to come under focus in these elections. At the beginning of the campaign, Tony Blair was trotted out to express his support for Ed Miliband but was quickly shuffled off the stage. Not only does his appearance remind everyone of the Iraq invasion but someone might mention he remains the US and European Union’s peace envoy in the Middle East; a strange choice and a job where he is happy to pocket his substantial financial returns for zero achievement. The Cameron government defended last year’s assault by Israel on Gaza.

All in all it’s a sorry record. Which is why, as Britain’s political leaders travel up and down the country on the campaign trail, they remain silent on British foreign policy. There are, literally, too many bodies buried there, so best to pass by in silence.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Anthony Hall, a professor of globalization at Lethbridge University, to discuss a report on Zio-Wahhabi ISIL terrorist group killing over 2,100 people off the battlefield since June in Syria. 

This is a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: What is the main solution to root out the ISIL menace in the Middle East?

Hall: Well, far be it for me to give the ultimate solution but the diagnosis has to be right. I think it is increasingly clear that ISIL is a reflection of this very strong, strange axis between Israel and Saudi Arabia perhaps through Jordan. We have to understand how this works.

Through Saudi Arabia there is this alliance that we are seeing coming in toplay in Yemen, which looks to me like a kind of popular uprising. The old imperial powers, the legacy of this imperial inheritance seems to be invested now in this Israel-Saudi axis and one of the instruments that this axis uses is ISIL. It is a proxy army and it is a psychological operation, and a very toxic psychological operation, that is here in North America.

Press TV: What are the global impacts of the emergence of ISIL?

 Hall: Well, it is part of this phenomenon. After the demise of the Soviet Union you had the United States with its war machine, you had the political economy of the major world powers geared to militarism, and an enemy was required and that enemy was produced on 9\11 and we see on 9\11 there was again this Saudi-Israeli axis playing itself out, the Bin Ladens, the Bushes, now prince Bandar. There is this need for an enemy and to construct the enemy and of course to draw the Islamic Republic of Iran into some kind of new cold war in the Middle East. This serves many agendas.

Press TV: How would you explain the ISIL’s media campaign?

Hall: This is fascinating in a certain grotesque way. I think the metaphor is a kind of Disneyesque. It is almost like there has been a production, a very concerted production of a kind of Disney Theme Park of the Islamic terrorism to terrify western people, European and North American people.

My prime minister in Canada Stephen Harper, he is getting ready to run a political campaign and seeks re-election based on his fighting this Islamic State, this Islamic Caliphate. So there is beyond the ground kind of politics which you are seeing, I am sure, from your perspective in Tehran, but here in North America we see the psychological dimension of keeping this war mentality alive. Keeping this idea that we have got to empower our central governments to have more police power, more power to spy on us, that we have got to be distrustful of every one and especially of Muslims that is very painful and ruthless on the Islamic people within Canada, within the United States, within Europe.
