While I don't sense any deceit at all from the female UN offiicial in the 2-minute video above, she was misinformed: There will NOT be any follow-up from Saudi(KSA) officials in re the kidnaping of Yemeni children(OR adults) who are designated to be sold as sex slaves. This video was made 6 1/2 years ago when the since-executed KSA puppet Yemeni President Saleh was still in power, more than 2 years before the Coalition invasion began, and conditions have only gotten far worse since then.

If, by some miracle, UN officials return to the KSA to interrogate its leaders about the sex-slave trade, then they'll give the exact same BS reply that they gave the woman above. They'll pretend that it's like mice running around in the attic, completly beyond their control and w/o their knowledge. They won't admit that their politicians and prominent businessmen are CLIENTS of the sex-slave trade and that the KSA has actively fomented that black market for decades now.

However, when you consider the millions of petro-dollars the KSA donates to the UN as, essentially, hush money, any dedicated investigation is extremely unlikely.As for the cowards in the corporate mainstream media(MSM), they'll keep regurgitating the same line that their bosses instruct them to restate...that the KSA is 'helping the West fight the war on terror'--as opposed to the truth, which is that the KSA is the literal hive center of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups' training and foundation

In the 2-minute clip above, you can see video images of since-abandoned secret prisons/torture centers that the U.S. and UAE pretend never existed.That's understandable, because the accounts of sexual abuse that took place at the prisons are a disgrace to both governments. As for those prisoners who disappeared, we can only guess which ones were sold off into the sex-slave trade and which were simply killed and buried in secret. If ANY of the cowards in the U.K. or U.S. corporate mainstream media report on this story, it will be a miracle almost equivalent to the parting of the Red Sea.

Trump: SHHHHHHH!!! You prince of morons! You're not supposed to sell weapons to al-Qaeda right out in the open. You're supposed to be helping us fight "the war on terror".....At least that's the excuse I give my voters and the small handful of peace-loving U.S. politicians who wonder WTF I'm doing maintaining an alliance with your scumbag regime.

Just below, you'll see another link with a more recent article than the one I posted a week ago about sexual abuse at prisons run by the UAE military. Their al-Qaeda buddies don't offer us any statistics on which of the disappearing inmates are sold as sex slaves and which are simply murdered, but we can safely assume that the numbers are substantial in each category.

Randi Nord is the valiant independent journalist who runs the site linked above, and you won't get ANY kind of reportage like this from the cowards in the U.K. or U.S. mainstream media.

The less-than-2-minute clip above is from last summer, from a European mainstream news media(MSM) agency based in France. Any glimmer of truth from the MSM is a small miracle in itself. While we can be realistic that few fighting troops act like perfect little angels, let's look at the UN's chickenshit BS implication that "all sides" have participated equally in sexually abusive war crimes. If the Yemeni Resistance were cavalierly kidnaping, raping or selling their own countryfolk into slavery, how long do you suppose the survivors would tolerate that:rolleyes:? Not for a hot minute; rather, the victims' families would cut deals with Saudi and UAE invasion troops by giving away Yemeni soldiers' locations and other key intelligence in exchange for food, medical treatment and/or refuge from the violence.

The UN speaker's phony rhetoric is designed to convey the lie that they can't do anything about Coalition war crimes because there is supposedly too much chaos for them to intervene right now--even though they've sent in peacekeeping troops on countless occasions in other , very similar conflicts. He also tries to whitewash the infamous Saudi/al-Qaeda barbarity by pretending that the Yemeni Resistance is just as savage.

The millions of Saudi petro-dollars donated to the UN clearly play a major role in the group's gutless lack of punitive action...just as the sponsorship of billion-dollar military industrial complex corporations for the MSM leads to their cowardly silence in the U.S. and U.K.

https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/06/28/599638/UAE-troop-withdrawal

July 4th is when Americans celebrate the independence of the U.S. but, as the article above details, this week we can rejoice--at least partly--about independence FROM the U.S.

Because Iran refuses to surrender its natural resources to American corporations, the U.S. military has been heavily distracted by that conflict they concocted and can't focus nearly as much on the invasion of Yemen. As for the UAE, time will tell their true motives, but it seems unlikely to me that they would withdraw troops from Yemen due to the U.S.-Iran confrontation when the UAE is already at risk of losing even more territory to the Yemeni Resistance.

What's far more likely is that the UAE is reacting just like most bullies who didn't expect to get kicked so hard in the mouth. Their tourism, their global image and their citizens' sense of safety have all taken a huge hit thanks to retaliatory missile strikes on the vicinity of the famous Dubai airport by the Yemeni Resistance, and now they're licking their wounds. The invasion has been going badly for the Saudi military, too, and now even al-Qaeda will have to lay low for a while w/o the Coalition military troops to protect them and enable their vile acts.

Whenever this war finally ends, you can be damned sure that the cowards in the UK and US mainstream media will never disclose the way that their militaries allowed al-Qaeda to commit its hideous human rights violations.

This article is the first I've seen where Coalition forces organized air raids for the specific purpose of helping terrorist comrades solidify their base of operations on the ground. Anyone attuned to the Middle East saw how the U.S. State dept. threatened to bomb Syria after the Syrian army had thoroughly subdued and driven U.S.-friendly terrorists outside Syrian borders. In the case linked above, it's Saudi (KSA) planes who are doing the bombing with heavy refueling, munitions and targeting assistance from the Americans.

You might ask yourself why the Saudis couldn't just let their terrorist trainees/buddies retreat and redouble their efforts after re-arming and increasing their forces; that is, why is it necessary to bomb primarily civilians in these villages in a desperate attempt to repel the Yemeni Resistance fron defeating terrorists? The answer to that is: Those al-Qaeda thugs and their comrades from similar cliques are vital conduits in the black markets of sex slaves, cheap labor, drugs and weapons.

The KSA doesn't want to lose ANY profit from those black markets or the "goodies" that are delivered thereby. To hear the cowards in the U.K. and U.S. corporate media tell it--IF they discuss it at ALL--it's just random criminal gangs who engage in such activity....it would NEVER be the political and military leaders of the U.S./U.K.'s close allies...and, of course, the U.K. and U.S. militaries wouldn't ever lend a hand to such a repulsive cabal:rolleyes:

The clip above lasts less than a minute and a half, and it's a rather simple summary of a crisis that has increasingly plagued Yemen this decade, though the clip itself was made a few years ago. It may be an ideal intro for those who are visiting this thread for the first time.

As is explained above, the problem began under traitorous former president Saleh, who was eventually executed for his crimes against the people. He purposely allowed groups like Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda into Yemen to use them as a buffer against dissatisfaction with his regime among the Yemeni people. Along the way, he gave them mostly free reign to conduct their vile sex trade and very well may have profited greatly from it.

In a recurring theme, just as the cowards in the U.K. and U.S. mainstream media pretend that the despicable Saudi regime is 'helping fight the war on terror' when, in fact, they are the primary founders of that terror, they also promoted the lie that President Saleh was fighting against terroristic groups during his 34-year, despotic stint while he was actually serving as their best buddy and even permitting them to enslave his own people.

The only downside to this 6-minute video is that, for some odd reason, the poster decided to include Gregorian chant music (or whatever the hell that style is called) as background, so I just muted the music and read the text after about a minute.

It's from Wikileaks, who have uncovered some of the worst scandals in recent history, and it includes info about victims from Mauritania, not just Yemen. It's worth noting that the video was uploaded in 2011....which is the exact same year that then-president Saleh is reported to have begun negotiations with Saudi Arabia to welcome al-Qaeda factions into Yemen in order to destabilize resistance to his utterly corrupt gov't. Unfortunately, the cowards in the U.K. and U.S. corporate mainstream media(MSM) apparently don't consider Yemen an important country, and THIS Wikileaks story didn't go viral enough to force the MSM's hand like other Wikileaks scandals have done

Life is rarely like a comic book, and the article above shows us a classic case of evil vs. evil. Two terroristic militia groups that are HEAVILY funded and armed by the U.K. and U.S. are each trying to take their own portion of a sovereign nation that doesn't belong to them. The cowards in the corporate mainstream media(MSM) in the U.K. and U.S. would have viewers and readers believe that this is just a random uprising from unanticipated criminal elements when, in reality, those thugs could barely make a ripple in the figurative pond without the assistance and political support from western so-called democratic powers who are using their hit men to help rape Yemen of its natural resources.

If these were regular army soldiers from the UAE or Saudi Arabia, they very likely wouldn't be morally upright individuals, but at least they would be more focused by their officers to concentrate on military tasks instead of looting cities and committing human rights abuses against locals. Because the standards of conduct are so shit-low for the militia, though, we can only guess what has happened to the abductees:eek:. Fortunately, the Yemeni Resistance is still quite able to hold their ground.

Though it was probably already crystal clear, Mintpress--cited above-- is an alternative(reliable) media source as opposed to corporate MSM.

The article above touches on the same theme as some of the videos that were previously posted here; namely, Africans who are enslaved by al-Qaeda and their cohorts in Yemen. The article goes into more gruesome detail than the videos did, so it may be depressing to read.

It's especially relevant how the writer exposes that the authorities tip off their buddies among the slave traders before any raids take place. This refutes the utter BS peddled by the U.K. and U.S. media that the Yemeni puppet gov't. supposedly lacks the resources to catch the criminal element.

Yemen: Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect

It's hard to tell where this group originates from because they use the proper English(i.e., British spelling) word "centre" in their title yet their mailing address is in NYC, probably very close to UN HQ. It's good that they sort of admit the reality that Coalition forces are guilty of hideous war crimes in Yemen, yet they retreat into that cowardly BS talking point that "both sides" are supposedly equally guilty. Try to imagine how asinine it would sound if the press claimed that both sides were equally culpable when Stalin's armies marched into Eastern Europe and took control after the end of WW2:rolleyes:, because we have a largely similar situation in Yemen.

https://www.thenation.com/article/war-crimes-united-states-saudi-arabia-yemen/

Above, you will find a FAR more honest assessment in which they acknowledge that this is no comic book-type battle between saints and demons, but the Yemeni Resistance has committed violations only sporadically, at worst, while al-Qaeda & the Coalition's war crimes are undeniably SYSTEMIC. Again, mainstream outlets like the first one have to maintain this illusion that the victims are just as bad as the abusers in order to lessen the vile infamy that their so-called (U.K. and U.S.)leaders deserve for pretending to be vanguards of democracy while uniting with some of the filthiest allies imaginable.

https://citizentruth.org/the-rationalisation-of-pedophilia-child-marriage-remains-common-practice-in-the-arabian-peninsula/?fbclid=IwAR0eQ88P2iiTyoq2cbBo22mRGFY98L6ZPOaFEGpIL5NLyyoR3vXQP5UtQ54

The author of this article is a devout Muslim(she just recently stopped wearing her hijab when appearing on TV and other media), so she is not some outsider who's trying to bash Islam.

The article condemns child marriage in a much broader sense, but it also takes time to focus on how extremist Wahhabist philosophy has filtered into Yemen from Saudi Arabia via al-Qaeda and other subhuman thug groups. This has not only led to an increase in child marriage but also sexual slavery and its black market.

Every once in a while, a corporate mainstream media news program in the U.K. or U.S. will do a piece on that topic if they can titillate enough with shock value to get some ratings, but they'll NEVER have the backbone to tell anyone that their so-called leaders make alliances with political figures in the Arabian Peninsula who knowingly fund and particpate in that sex-slave market as clients and sellers.

Good news is always welcome and--while the article above is frank about Yemeni civilians' suffering--this piece explains how the Yemeni Resistance has not only kicked Saudi Arabia(KSA) in the teeth HARD(as any repulsive bully deserves) to accelerate KSA desires for a peace settlement but it has also caused major damage to Saudi oil pipelines, which leads to a huge loss in revenue for Saudi royals to line their pockets with and ripple effects throughout their economy.

The article only touches briefly on Coalition war crimes because that's not the piece's main theme, but it refers to 'displacements', which cover not only civilians fleeing their homes but also abductions, which can lead to arbitrary imprisonment OR bondage in the sex-slave market, as we've seen abundantly.

However, the cowards in the corporate mainstream media in the U.K. and U.S. throw its viewers and readers a red herring by pretending that the Yemeni Resistance attacks on KSA pipelines are part of some 'Iranian terrorist' conspircy that supposedly threatens humanity:rolleyes:. I guess you have to grasp at whatever straws you can find when your government is an enabler to one of the most disgusting regimes in recent(i.e., the last few hundred years) recorded history.

How The Yemen War is Creating Slavery - 30 Million to None

This is the first time I've ever seen the site linked above, though you can see that the report dates back to January. I don't know who their founders are, but I seriously doubt that they are backed by any corporate media conglomerate becaus you don't see any BS accusations that the Yemeni Resistance is part of some alleged Iranian terrorist conspiracy.

They also make it fairly clear that the U.S./Saudi-led Coalition is primarily responsible for the ramping up of the slave trade, and the article includes certain aspects of that black market that we haven't discussed here before. The cowards in the U.K. and U.S. mainstream media will barely ever MENTION the sex-slave trade, and even THEN it will only be done briefly and superficially with the implication that it's just some random occurrence that sprang up from the war that nobody can do anything about:rolleyes:. It's too unsettling for their followers to find out what disgusting alliances their so-called leaders are building.

The only error I can comment on is when they suggest that there is an inadequate amount of law enforcement to stop the slave trade, but that was probably a semantic error by the author and NOT any deliberate, self-serving one.Although the chaos of war is a contributory obstacle, the truth is that the Saudi puppet gov't. and UAE-controlled city officials don't even TRY to impede the slave trade because they profit richly from it.:help:

https://www.mintpressnews.com/human-trafficking-booming-yemen-war/261818/

Though I've been following the Coalition invasion of Yemen almost from the beginning, the article above shows us an aspect of the slave market that I hadn't heard of happening in Yemen. The end of the piece touches on the sex-slave trade that this thread has focused on, but the majority of the article details a very ugly,sad situation in which victims are either forced or heavily pressured to submit themselves to a black-market organ donation trade, almost always with scant compensation for their suffering.

If this gets discussed AT ALL in the corporate mainstream media(MSM), it will be treated as some sort of tragic, random accident of life--like a meteor impact or a sudden virus outbreak--instead of a development that was DIRECTLY caused by the U.K. and U.S.' formation of a disgraceful imperialistic alliance with the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

https://scholarship.shu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.google.com/&httpsredir=1&article=1227&context=student_scholarship

Though I welcome any thorough interest in the academic file above, this is NOT a generation of readers, sadly, unless it's something as short as a tweet, so I direct you primarily to pages 17 and 18. The writer deserves lots of credit for distinguishing known fact from theory in her work, but I disagree with some of her hypotheses, even though her studies themselves display personal integrity. To me, a more plausible theory is that al-Qaeda activity has been channeled more into factions who are aligned and compliant with the governments of Saudia Arabia(KSA), the U.K. and U.S. while the more radical ideologue purist factions(who hate the West with a passion) have been forsaken by their al-Qaeda cousins and largely extinguished in a fake show of moral righteousness by the KSA, UK and US as they pretend to fight a 'war on terror' while arming and funding more 'obedient' al-Qaeda cells who do the Coalition's bidding.

There's also a theory posed by some experts in the field that bin Laden wasn't really killed. It's not at all unusual for powerful rebel leaders to have a double as a self-protective measure, and many scholars suggest it was the double who was killed while bin Laden now operates with a lower profile behind the scenes.

As for the thread's principal theme, the piece above shows that sex trafficking is not merely an indulgence for psychotic perverts to control other human beings but rather a fundamental financial aspect of terrorist operations that is elaborately planned out at the highest levels as a nation's budget director would do. Needless to say, the cowards in the corporate mainstream media will never dig TOO deeply into such trafficking because it would prove what a revolting alliance their so-called democratic leaders were supporting.

While there is worthwhile viewing in the entire vid, I'll save some of your time by directing you to the stretch from the 19:30 mark up to 21:30 which deals more with the theme of this thread. Assange also re-inforces what I've said for years here--that Saudi and other major Wahhabist investors for the corporate mainstream media(MSM) are effectively censoring and tailoring how news is being reported, and the cowards in the MSM who receive healthy salaries are only too happy to comply.

https://www.hstoday.us/subject-matter-areas/counterterrorism/intensified-al-qaeda-and-isis-activity-in-yemen-deeply-worrying-says-un/

The short article above is from a right-wing source that would probably leave many Trumpanzees happy yet, to their credit, they don't openly accuse the Houthis/Yemeni Resistance of committing terrorism but rather use words like 'alleged attacks'. This is significant because one of the slimiest tricks of the MSM has been to minimize the atrocities of the U.K. and U.S.-led invasion force by stating that 'both sides' have been equally guilty of human rights violations...which is, of course, asininely stupid and dishonest. When you see the author refer to forcible displacement in the last sentence of the article, that absolutely includes abductions on behalf of the sex-slave trade:help:
