Warmonger-in-chief vetoes bill to end participation in Yemeni civil war

Mr. Drumpf vetoed the measure Tuesday. Congress lacks the votes to override him. "This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future," Mr. Drumpf wrote in explaining his veto.
What? This doesn't make sense anywhere, neither in the beginning, nor in the end. First of all, the greatest threats to US citizens occurs once they step on S.A.'s or Yemen's soil, because then, they could easily end up in the crosshairs of any side. Secondly, your Constitutional authority, as you call it, should be combined with a certain amount of intelligence that leads to the decision that any contribution to this war, especially on S.A.'s side, is not going to end it, but only fuel an ongoing genocide. Do you even know what you vetoed?
Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, voted to end U.S.

S.A. and UAE fear loss of diplomatic relationship with Sudan after al-Bashir's force-fed resignation

Sudan plays a key role in the regional interests of Saudi Arabia and its allies, siding with Riyadh against Shiite Iran and providing troops in the Saudi-led coalition fighting in the Yemen war.

"Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are by nature averse to all popular movements or revolutions," said Karim Bitar, director of research at the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs.

"The Gulf states are watching Sudan with apprehension and will do everything possible to ensure that the transition happens in continuity, meaning that Sudan remains under military control," Bitar told AFP.

Kritik an Rüstungslieferungsvereinbarung mit Saudi-Arabien

Danach genehmigt Berlin Lieferungen von Rüstungsgütern an die Jemen-Kriegsparteien. Dabei geht es unter anderem um „Technologie für Satteltiefladerfertigung“, die der Ulmer Transportwagenhersteller Kamag nach Frankreich liefert. Die fertigen Tieflader, die etwa zum Transport von Panzern eingesetzt werden können, sollen schließlich nach Saudi-Arabien ausgeführt werden. Die Emirate sollen Artillerie-Ortungsradarsysteme sowie neue Software für die Systeme aus deutsch-französischer Produktion erhalten sowie Ersatzteile für Rüstungsgerät. Darüber hinaus wurden Waffenlieferungen an Algerien, Katar, Indonesien und Singapur genehmigt, heißt es in einer Liste des Wirtschaftsministeriums, die unserer Berliner Redaktion vorliegt.

Saudi Arabia is Threatening to Ditch the Petrodollar
Three year ago – almost to the day – Saudi Arabia rattled its first sabre towards the United States, with an implicit threat to dump US Treasuries over Congress’ decision to allow the Saudis to be held responsible for the 9/11 attacks.


 
Military leader’s threats to Libya’s capital have been condemned by the UN and EU

Last-ditch appeals are being made to persuade Khalifa Haftar to step back from the brink of an all-out attack on Tripoli, Libya’s capital, after the UN security council warned him to halt all military manoeuvres and said those threatening military solutions will face consequences.

It is the first time the international community has been so clear that Haftar is responsible for the aggression and follows a failed effort by the UN secretary general, António Guterres, to persuade Haftar to hold UN mediation talks in Geneva with Libya’s prime minister, Fayez al-Sarraj. #Libya #Africa #MiddleEastandNorthAfrica #Worldnews #UnitedNations #France #SaudiArabia #Egypt #Europe

Ideas on how to solve the ISL-PAL conflict

__But when the book was published, my life changed. It provoked a stormy conversation. Right-wingers who saw me treating the left’s arguments with respect and admiration accused me of being a leftist; left-wingers who saw that I presented the strongest possible forms of the right’s positions angrily called me a right-winger in disguise. One of them was former Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who wrote in Israel’s leading broadsheet that Catch-67 was “steeped in a right-wing agenda.” A book that sought to heal Israel’s most impolite disagreements ended up inflaming some rude arguments of its own._

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict can be shrunk, and it can be shrunk dramatically. Israelis could take eight practical steps right now that would maximize Palestinian freedom without compromising Israeli security. These steps won’t solve the conflict. They won’t help manage it. But they can shrink it.

The dominant narrative on the right is no longer about the sa
