Yemen will go down in the record books for all the excruciating ways it breaks our hearts. In the Aslam district of Hajjah in the Yemeni north where Saudi Arabia and the UAE are besieging (like the rest of the country) and have bombed, re-bombed and then bombed some more, the people are gathering portions of leaves off Arabian Wax Leaf vines and boiling them into a sour paste just so they can survive the siege. Hajjah has seen severe acute malnutrition skyrocket this year, with 17,000 cases in the first six months alone–and 1,319 of those cases are children in Aslam. The district is a dystopian nightmare, as parents of suffering, starving kids don’t even have enough money to buy diapers and the main health center is out of pediatricians, electricity, fuel and oxygen cylinders. Pictures and videos have made it into mainstream media and alternative media. Looking and watching puts your soul through a meat-grinder. There aren’t enough curses to be uttered in the Mother Tongue or the Colonialist Tongue that would suffice for Riyadh and Abu Dhabi for what they’ve done to Yemen.

Amnesty International can go fuck itself. The Soros-funded, Zionist, US-State-Dept-aligned, “Human Rights” Imperialist guild of regime-changers and Takfiri-sympathizers have just put out a new report–more like a hitpiece, really–accusing Ansarullah, the heroic Yemeni Islamic Resistance defending its nation from both Saudi invasion and Takfiri destabilization, of “arbitrary arrests”, “torture” and “enforced disappearances” of “political opponents”. No different than its “incubator babies” hasbara campaign that fueled the American destruction of Iraq in ‘90-‘91 and every one of its propaganda waves against the Syrian Arab Republic over the last 5 years, including the recent monsoon of lies about Aleppo, Amnesty is once again going after a target of the US-‘Israeli’ Empire and attempting to distort the image of a Resistance movement under foreign attack. Amnesty smeared the Iraqi Mouqwamah from the opening days of the US-UK-Zionist onslaught, libeled Hizbullah in 2006, tried to tarnish the Palestinian Resistance in ‘08-‘09, ‘12 and ‘14… In fact! With the Houthis under disinformation assault now too, there isn’t an anti-Imperialist, anti-Zionist counter-invasion group in our whole region that Amnesty HASN’T spread falsehoods about! And what is the basis of the Sorosite “activist” organ’s latest round of legerdemain, i.e. whom are its sources sullying the good name of Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi’s Godwary moujahideen? None other than Al-Islah, the Yemeni “Muslim” Brotherhood (Ikhwan). It is actually admitted right there in Amnesty’s “investigation”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that forces willing to reshape the world often used extremism as a tool in so-called “color revolutions” and urged law enforcement to use international experience to fight such tendencies in Russia.
“In the modern world extremism is used as a geopolitical tool for redistribution of spheres of interest. We can see the tragic consequences of the wave of the so-called color revolutions, the shock experienced by people in the countries that had went through the irresponsible experiments of hidden, or sometimes brute and direct interference with their lives,” Putin told the Security Council on Thursday.
“This is a lesson and a warning for us,” Putin said. “We will do everything to never let this take place in Russia.” Continue reading Putin urges tougher measures to counter extremism, color revolutions

f the Italian term paparazzi (first coined by Federico Fellini in his film La Dolce Vita) has gained a certain notoriety of meaning in our times, it is perhaps time to coin a similar neologism that accurately reflects the partiality and double-standards of those elite Western (corporate controlled) faux-left, liberal mainstream discourses on human rights. These are those mainstream and mass media discourses advanced by the Anglo-European Transatlantic West deliberately designed with specific intent, thus opportunistically crafted, to misrepresent, misinform or otherwise disinform regarding occurrences of certain cause celebres (particularly when they happen to be publicized legal cases) happening among rival societies, governments or polities which these Transatlantic elites happen not to like at any given time, such as, for example, the Islamic Republic of Iran.
