Friday 25th November WikiLeaks releases The Yemen Files

crew-2231211Yemen is of significant strategic interest as Yemen controls a narrow choke point to the Red Sea and the Suez Canal through which 11% of the world’s petroleum passes each day.

 

In addition, Yemen borders Saudi Arabia (to the north) and Oman (to the east) and has access to the Arabian Sea through which another 20% of the world’s petroleum passes through the Strait of Hormuz (including the oil of Saudi Arabia and Iran).

In what was a proxy war between the Saudi’s, and Iran, Obama could not help himself.

He had to do what he always does, enter the fray too late, albeit returning tomahawk and cruise missiles .

The U.S. cruise missile launches come as the U.S. considers withdrawing its support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis following Saturday’s airstrike on the funeral and other troubling incidents of civilian casualties as a result of the Saudi bombing campaign. (Source)

Saudi Arabia seeks to control a port in Yemen to avoid the potential constriction of its oil shipments by Iran along the Straight of Hormuz or by countries which can control its other oil shipment path along the Red Sea.

 

 

Why should this matter for the rest of the world?

What happens in Yemen can greatly exacerbate regional tensions. It also worries the West because of the threat of attacks emanating from the country as it becomes more unstable.

Western intelligence agencies consider al Qaeda Arabian Peninsula, (AQAP) the most dangerous branch of al-Qaeda because of its technical expertise and global reach, and the emergence of IS affiliates in Yemen is a serious concern.

The conflict between the Houthis and the elected government is also seen as part of a regional power struggle between Shia-ruled Iran and Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia.

Gulf Arab states have accused Iran of backing the Houthis financially and militarily, though Iran has denied this, and they are themselves backers of President Hadi.

Yemen is strategically important because it sits on the Bab al-Mandab strait, a narrow waterway linking the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden, through which much of the world’s oil shipments pass. (Source)

 

Yemen Files

Wikileaks
Julian Assange
Nov.25, 2016

 

The Yemen Files are a collection of over 500 documents from the United States embassy in Sana’a, Yemen.

Comprising of over 200 emails and 300 PDFs, the collection details official documents and correspondence pertaining to the Office for Military Cooperation (OMC) located at the US embassy.

The collection spans the period from 2009 until just before the war in Yemen broke out in earnest during March 2015.

This time it covers both Hillary Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (2009-2013) and the first two years of Secretary John Kerry.

The collection spans the period from 2009 until just before the war in Yemen broke out in earnest during March 2015.

Julian Assange said: “The war in Yemen has produced 3.15 million internally displaced persons.

Although the United States government has provided most of the bombs and is deeply involved in the conduct of the war itself.

 

See the entire article below.

 

Although the United States government has provided most of the bombs and is deeply involved in the conduct of the war itself reportage on the war in English is conspicuously rare.”

The Yemen Files offer documentary evidence of the US arming, training and funding of Yemeni forces in the years building up to the war.

The documents reveal, among other things, procurement of many different weapon types: aircraft, vessels, vehicles, proposals for maritime border security control and Yemeni procurement of US biometric systems.

US presence remained in the country until February 2015 when the US closed its embassy due to the continuing unrest between different factions in the country.

The war broke out a month later.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
