Hillary Clinton's Complicity in Saudi Atrocities in Yemen

Hillary Clinton's Complicity in Saudi Atrocities in Yemen

A recent article asked the question, "Why the hell is the US helping Saudi Arabia bomb Yemen?" My response:

Because our country is dominated by an oligarchy of special interests more concerned with using our resources to serve Israel's proxy war against their enemy Iran, along with their "shabbat goy" Big Business allies with their personal profitable business deals with Saudi Arabia. One of Hillary Clinton's current advisors and former chief-of-staff at the Pentagon, Jeremy Bash, is also managing partner at Beacon Global Strategies, which provides paid advice to several war-profiteering corporations. In April 2014, Boeing lobbyist and former Bill Clinton aide, Tim Keating, co-hosted a fundraising for the super-PAC Ready for Hillary, which was already preparing for the current Clinton campaign.

"The Boeing relationship meshed well with efforts by Clinton to expand the State Department's advocacy of U.S. economic interests abroad, part of a broader philosophy that has emphasized partnering government with businesses to solve problems. A potential side benefit for Clinton has been the chance to strengthen ties to the kind of powerful allies in the business community who could assist a possible presidential bid." (<>)

On December 26, 2011, Jeremy Bash sent an email titled "F-15SA Christmas Present" to Jake Sullivan, then Secretary of State Clinton's deputy chief of staff and now a senior policy advisor to her campaign. Sullivan then forwarded it to Clinton with his own note at the top, celebrating the $29 billion deal two days before between Boeing and Saudi Arabia "good news."

Because you know, nothing encapsulates the holiday season to such cold evil individuals than the "Chrismas present" of their corporate friends profiting to the tune of $29 billion so the Saudis could then have plenty of sophisticated and lethal F-15s to bomb, strafe and murder thousands of Yemeni civilians and obliterate an already impoverished country!

And indeed it was much to celebrate for this government-Big Business nexus and its close ties to what Eisenhower famously termed the Military-Industrial-Complex. In a press conference on October 20, 2010, Andrew Shapiro, then Assistant Secretary for Political-Military Affairs at Clinton's State Department, gloated that his boss had made the lucrative and bloody arms deal to Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen a "top priority." The links continued in her nonprofit Clinton Foundation, which similarly robbed the Haitian people and served as a funnel for the predatory Goldman Sachs' rewarding of her loyal services.

"The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration. These extra sales were part of a broad increase in American military exports that accompanied Obama's arrival in the White House. The 143 percent increase in U.S. arms sales to Clinton Foundation donors compares to an 80 percent increase in such sales to all countries over the same time period." (<>)

The State continues to perpetuate, solidify and institutionalize this nexus of Big Government and Big Banking-Big Business to be one and the same, by co-opting the entire discourse that the groupthink of both "right" and "left" then respond to by getting bogged down in all these irrelevant distractions peddled by all the political clowns. One of the hypocrisies of those calling themselves "liberals" is while (rightly) criticizing the wars and the war-profiteer of the Bush Administration, they quickly ignored and even justified the same status quo when it was continued by the Obama Administration and the Hillary Clinton/John Kerry State Department. Those who now are more offended by Trump's words than Hillary's actual policies, are complicit in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Libyans, Syrians, Yemenis and others because they will vote and support for one who was directly involved in such murderous policies - pure and simple, no way around it!

And lest those who think Trump is some kind of "alternative" to Hillary Clinton, the same Trump who is a loyal servant of Israel and who is in bed with the same Big Banks and Big Business institutions, likewise took $5.7 million in blood money from the Saudis, so their government could then enjoy a lavish apartment in NYC from which they could then go before the United Nations and defend their own barbarism in Yemen and hide their support for terrorist mercenary groups in Syria along with their Israeli allies....And the same Donald Trump who's towing of the Zionist line is so faithful he would "Make America Great Again" by going to war like a lackey against Iran, for Saudi Arabia and Israel.
