Hong Kong Protests & Capital Flight

Western propaganda comes in two types, 1) we attack them for our benefit (realism), and 2) we save them for their benefit (liberalism), and when it comes to Hong Kong, both the Left and Right of the Anglo world tend towards the latter, actually thinking the political unrest is vaguely because China wants to impose laws on Hong Kong to extradite “human rights” and “democracy” campaigners…

Wikileaks about Libya & Syria

Everybody knows about the Wikileaks about the war crimes committed in Iraq, but what has been suppressed, even by Assange’s own fans, were his leaks on Syria & Libya. 1. France pushed for invading Libya in 2011 because they wanted to “gain a greater share of Libyan oil production” and to prevent Gaddafi from establishing a rival currency called the “Gold Dinar”…

Yemen: Understanding the Zaydi Revival

Portraying the modern Ansarullah movement as a straight-forward reaction to secular republicanism as the former President Ali Abdallah Saleh often did during his presidency, ignores that Zaydi revivalism emerged in the early 90s in opposition to the growth of Salafi-Wahhabi ideology.

Yemen: A 20th Century Historic Overview

Up until 1990 Yemen was divided into two countries: North Yemen, which regained its independence as the Zaydi Imamate following the defeat of the Ottoman empire in World War I; and South Yemen, which was occupied by Britain in 1874 and would only gain its independence from Britain in 1967, as a Socialist republic called the Democratic People’s Republic of Yemen.

Yemen: Background of the “Houthi” Movement – the Zaydis

The genocidal war on Yemen is not getting the coverage it deserves. Syria gets attention because demonizing the central government is crucial towards hiding support for the armed war against it, whereas Yemen doesn’t because there is no possible way to spin the war other than as Saudi Arabia telling the people of Yemen, “unless you accept a President we’ve chosen for Yemen, you will face genocide”…
