It surprised me a little that the CIA even wasted their time publishing anything to the public now that they have the corporate mainstream media(MSM) parroting whatever propaganda the CIA seeks to disseminate. Anyhow, the information in the link is appalling yet very educational, and you can see where Yemen ranks, compared to other countries that the CIA monitors, if you simply scroll down alphabetically until you get near the bottom of the list. While it's good that the report admits that the official Yemeni government(i.e., the Saudi puppet regime that's endorsed by the UN) does NOT make an honest effort to combat sex trafficking, what the CIA doesn't tell you is that they have funded(that is, delivered the funding as couriers, of sorts), trained and armed the very same terrorists--and their governmental enablers--who are openly conducting that sex trafficking.

While nobody expects honesty from the pathological liars at the CIA, the MSM often sticks its chest out in a phony show of moral outrage when challenging the politics of Boris Johnson or Donald Trump. In the end, though, the MSM serves as a hand-socket puppet act for the wealthy, psychotic, Wahhabist regimes that have invested so heavily in those very media agencies:rolleyes:

This report was issued by an organization called European Country of Origin Information Network. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you'll see that they claim to be run by the Austrian Red Cross--which sounds benevolent enough--but, if you keep reading, you'll find that they are backed by the United Nations and that the source of their information is the U.S. Dept. of State(USDOS)--which gets its "facts" on crisis situations from CIA reports:facepalm:. You would hope that the USDOS could hire independent, neutral investigators to determine if the CIA is telling the truth(don't hold your breath on THAT ever happening:rolleyes:) before choosing to bomb or invade a sovereign nation, yet that might delay billions in earnings for the Military Industrial Complex whose former directors often SERVE in the USDOS. The CIA report in last week's post is mostly matter-of-fact, probably b/c the CIA realizes that nobody with any common sense trusts them, so there's no point in wasting much of their time trying to gloss over the ugly invasion of Yemen for the citizenry.

The ECOI/USDOS statements in the link above, though, are fully loaded with BS excuses and misinformation that are intended to make the Saudi/U.K./U.S.-led Coalition look like the "good guys" who are willing to risk the enablement of terrorists and sex traffickers in a sincere attempt to 'spread democracy' to Yemen:rolleyes:. It really looks almost exactly like the newspaper articles or TV news programs put out by the cowards in the corporate mainstream media(MSM)...which means that ECOI PR staff have promising, high-paying careers waiting for them in the MSM's so-called journalism:eek:

This report reminded me of that crappy 2007 movie Vacancy where the hotel manager, played by Frank Whaley, conspired to murder and rob guests staying in his remote establishment. Imagine Whaley's character's giving a vague, general warning to incoming guests about potential thievery and violence, as that would be roughly equivalent to the USDOS advisory above. Of course, the corporate mainstream news media(MSM) writes its cue cards and programs teleprompters according to the obvious BS from the USDOS or CIA reports, so the lingo used above should look very familiar.

What they SHOULD say(in the 1st paragraph) is, "...terrorists emboldened, funded, trained and armed by OUR government and our allies may pose a threat to you...and beware of kidnapping because young white girls and boys are of high value on the sex-slave market that OUR allies' leaders participate in while we turn a blind eye to it in order to obtain cheaper petroleum..."

For the 2nd paragraph, they could say, "...there is heavy military conflict that WE fomented in order to stengthen a Saudi puppet regime that's hated by the populace..."

In the 3rd paragraph, "...the world's largest cholera outbreak exists because U.S. fighter planes and laser-guided targeting have deliberately bombed water-supply(AND food distribution) facilities in order to starve civilians and bring the population to its knees so they won't resist us..."

In the 4th, "...no part of Yemen is immune to violence because our terrorist comrades have bribed and armed local criminal gangs and used them as militia everywhere..."

And finally, in the 5th paragraph, they could say, "...U.S. embassy staff got the fuck out of there in Feb. 2015 because--though we've formed alliances of convenience with the POSes in the Saudi regime and their terroristic trainees--we're not stupid enough to trust those maniacs to launch an attack w/o accidentally hitting us as collateral damage..."

Whatever name the Brits,French and Israelis give their own State Department, the press releases are surely the same as the fork-tongued deception in the link above...and their MSM spew the same government-enabling garbage and pretend that the sex-slave trade is just some stroke of bad luck that randomly popped up.

The link above is from an independent British media source from more than 3 years ago. I probably missed it back then because my searches were focused more narrowly on al-Qaeda while the article above deals more with ISIL. Still, the clientele and the financial backers for each group's sex-slave trade are the very same lowlifes.

You'll notice how stubbornly the U.K. gov't. blocked inquiries back then, and nothing has changed since then--in the U.K. or the U.S. and France. Saudi oil money instills cowardice in Western so-called leaders on the diplomatic front while huge Saudi, Emirati and Qatari investors in the corporate mainstream media agencies guarantee silence on the journalistic front amongst well-known outlets.

As you can read in the article, the U.S. is now arming and funding the military of a nation, Sudan, that its State Department classifies as a terrorist state; in fact, the U.S. has them under heavy sanctions. You can easily learn more about the sickening human rights violations that Sudanese soldiers are trained to participate in. For those of you who want to argue semantics b/c the article only mentions rape of women and children and not sexual slavery, take a look at this:

https://africanarguments.org/2016/01/18/coming-to-terms-with-sudans-legacy-of-slavery-2/

Of course, just because a narco lord sold billions of dollars worth of opium or cocaine over several decades doesn't empirically prove that he's doing it THIS year, but anyone who thinks that the Sudanese soldiers aren't profiting with al-Qaeda from the already-intact slave trade in Yemen is as gullible as the sheep who watch the cowardly corporate mainstream news media and believe that they're actually being told the truth about the U.K. and U.S.' regime-change wars of invasion:rolleyes:.

https://geopoliticsalert.com/geopolitics-alert-editor-at-un-history-of-human-rights-in-the-gulf-video

The article and video above are from less then 2 months ago, and they offer a relatively-updated summary of the human rights violations inflicted on the Yemeni people by the U.K./U.S./Saudi/U.A.E-led Coalition. As for the secret, illegal U.A.E.-run prisons that randomly incarcerate civilians, we learned at the end of last year that some detainees disappear into thin air, either sold onto the sex-slave market or killed and thrown into a ditch somewhere.

The council that is reporting to the UN is, thankfully, independent of that sycophantic body, so that allows them to remain more objective. We constantly hear the UN call for 'all sides' to stop the fighting, but that is as asinine as the police arriving on the scene and yelling, "Okay, all of you folks start behaving nicely" when a team of thugs has surrounded and begun firing at a house of law-abiding people and the residents are only firing back in self-defense to preserve their lives.

The cowards in the mainstream news media(MSM) and the UN are in the same boat. Both have made alliances with their wealthy investors who are the clear aggressors in this war of invasion, so they have to pretend that the factions fighting to defend their country are 'bad guys', too, since even many idiots can figure out that the Saudi and UAE invaders are scum.

https://citizentruth.org/gender-based-violence-plagues-yemen-women-all-sides-are-guilty/?fbclid=IwAR0sO8_OCWpuSE7TyzRy6lq6to_QPrU75VagWzIJmbbx3Mnt3RUrwLKYvRw

Reading about the kinds of abuses mentioned in the article foments a strong desire to see the abusers receive agonizing punishment that is equivalent to the suffering they have inflicted upon others. The writer cites 2006 as the year when this increasing trend of sexual assaults, including enslavement, first kicked into high gear, and that was largely thanks to the late former president Saleh who welcomed terroristic groups into Yemen to serve as a sort of police force to quash anti-corruption, populist movements among the citizenry.

The writer maintains an even-handed approach in conceding that even members of the Yemeni Resistance are probably guilty of some of the abuses detailed above, but sexual abuse of women and children is FAR more common among Wahhabist factions, and that extreme, apostate version of Islam was IMPORTED from Saudi Arabia(KSA), primarily. The various UN departments do an okay job of verbally denouncing the human rights violations--yet that's as far as it goes. Because of the millions of dollars the KSA contributes to the UN and the petroleum they sell to Security Council leaders, the U.K. and U.S., there ultimately won't be any ACTIONS taken against the KSA or the imperialistic Coalition it belongs to.

I suppose the UN's empty posturing at least offers SOMEwhat of a forum to raise these issues, which is a hell of a lot better than the non-effort that the cowards in the corporate mainstream media put forth. They'd rather spend 24/7 blabbering about Trump's phone calls than exposing the slave trade of women and children that his regime has enabled with blanket support for the KSA:rolleyes:

https://financialservices.house.gov/uploadedfiles/03.20.2018_louise_shelley_testimony.pdf

This is an interesting look into the transnational networks of terrorism, drug & sex trafficking and organized crime organizations. Because it's in pdf format, there are lots of footnotes at the bottom of the pages and it's the kind of academic work that you can read through in less than 10 minutes. Page 1 and the top two lines of Page 2 describe the various elements and the roles they play. In the top paragraph of Page 3, we see al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula(AQAP) named for its crimes against Yemen.

One of the saddest aspects to all of this is that the corporate mainstream news media will only (rarely) comment on the flagrantly-criminal actors in this drama. They're too gutless to tell you that this nonstop crime spree flourishes because the legislators and executive leaders of western democracies are the #1 political facilitators of the black market detailed above.
