US has already participated in 2 Middle East genocides — apparently, it is gearing up to initiate a third

Genocide as a fundamental US principle?


Showing how Yemen's Ansar Allah is holding the West to account — for arming and financing Israel's quasi-genocide of Pasestinians in Gaza — William Van Wagenen said that:



In response to Israel unleashing unprecedented violence on Gaza, killing over 20,000 people, predominantly women and children, Yemen’s Ansarallah-led armed forces announced on 14 November their intent to target any Israeli-linked ship passing through the strategic Bab al-Mandab Strait in the Red Sea.


This crucial waterway serves as the gateway to the Suez Canal, through which approximately 10 percent of global trade and 8.8 million barrels of oil travel each day.


On 9 December, Ansarallah announced it would expand its operations further to target any ship in the Red Sea on its way to Israel, regardless of its nationality.


“If Gaza does not receive the food and medicine it needs, all ships in the Red Sea bound for Israeli ports, regardless of their nationality, will become a target for our armed forces," an Ansarallah Armed Forces spokesperson said in a statement.


Recognizing the difficulty of countering Ansarallah from a defensive posture, at least some in the US national security establishment are demanding US forces go on the offensive and strike Yemen directly.


Yemen itself has just emerged from an eight-year, US-backed Saudi and UAE war that led to the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.


Both Persian Gulf nations used US bombs to kill tens of thousands of Yemenis, while imposing a blockade and siege that led to hundreds of thousands of additional deaths from hunger and disease.


And yet Ansarallah emerged stronger militarily from that conflict.


If US support for two genocides in the Arab world [Yemen and Gaza] are not enough, maybe the third [a repeat in Yemen] will be the charm.

The moral? — If the world were to rid itself of . . .


. . . genocidally inclined Zionists — and mass-murdering American neocons — it would instantly become a better place for human beings.


It is rare that genuine evil can be so easily and justly pinpointed.
