    So it is ok to sell arms to terror funding countries while at the same time imposing sanctions on the countries they target?

    The West is complicit in the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe.

    Responding to events in Yemen, the British foreign secretary did not mince his words. ‘I am appalled by another attempted missile strike’, he said. ‘This is the second such shocking incident in six weeks, which yet again deliberately targeted a populated area’, he continued, adding: ‘I strongly support UN investigations into the origins of these weapons and welcome the UN’s suggestion of a joint discussion of the relevant UN bodies to look into these threats and consider action against those responsible.’ Strong stuff.

    Yet this was not a condemnation of the Saudi-led coalition’s missile attack on a bus in Dahyan in the Houthi-rebel stronghold of Saadaa, in which at least 29 children were killed and many more seriously injured. And it was not a call for a UN investigation into the ongoing Saudi-led assault on Hodeida, a port city on the west coast that is the main entry point for food and aid supplies to Houthi-controlled areas. Indeed, it was not a response to any of the atrocities carried out over the past three years as part of the Saudi coalition’s war on Yemen’s Houthi rebels. No, this was Boris Johnson, who was then the foreign secretary, speaking in December, about the Houthi rebels’ attempted missile attack on the Saudi capital of Riyadh. A missile attack, one should remember, that failed because Saudi military tech, no doubt made in the West, intercepted it.

    ** It is not a surprise, of course. The Saudi monarchs are our men in the Middle East. They are British state’s allies, its friends. As Johnson put it in December, ‘the United Kingdom remains committed to supporting Saudi Arabia as it faces regional crises and security threats’. There is little doubting the UK’s or America’s commitment, given they design and manufacture billions of dollars worth of weaponry for the de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. They send military advisers and logistical assistance, too. And above all they persistently turn a blind eye to the devastation of Yemen. And when that proves impossible, as a bus of children burns or the remains of a hospital smoulder, they downplay it, by expressing token concern accompanied by a perfunctory call for all parties to come to a peaceful solution. As if it somehow has nothing to do with them.**

    Iran fights those Islamic factions which are hostile to Iran----
    kinda like the various factions of the MAFIA used to shoot
    each other in the streets of New York-----or in the swamps of
    New Jersey. I remember those days------somehow I did not see
    anything ENCOURAGING about the recovery of dead mafia
    people dredged out of the Passaic River. Mafia killed both OTHER mafia people AND the poor grocers unwilling to sell the
    RIGHT PIZZA SAUCE and Iran kills muslims not willing to kiss
    Iranian ass--------and Capt BLEI is impressed with their
    piety

    PROXIES in that country-------Sanaa (the capital) ran red with HOUTHI DRAWN BLOOD years ago-------and-----you seem to miss the fact that beside SANAA----the targets of the IRANIAN PROXIES are------the seaports?

    Don't shout at me.

    I didn't write it.

    I posted it in the hope of promoting some 'reasonable' debate. Argument and counter argument.
