The article above is from 2 years ago yet seems to be even MORE relevant in the present, as U.K. and U.S. corporate mainstream media(MSM) play upon boorish quotes by either Boris Johnson or Trump(or other rather superficial stories) and then drag them out and rehash them as lame soap opera plots instead of focusing on the REAL issues that directly affect people's lives. This is especially true when multi-millionaire weapons manufacturers are heavy investors in the news agency and have a vested interest in prolonging ongoing wars. If the MSM will barely, sporadically acknowledge the illegal siege war itself in Yemen(and ALWAYS with an absurd, pro-UK/US spin), how much LESS will they cover the sex trafficking and other warcrimes committed there(?)

This must be a U.S.-based organization since they suggest contacting the Congress there as a means of expressing one's views. This specific article is about 2 1/2 years old yet it summarizes most of the critical details regarding the sex slave trade in Yemen. While they go beyond the norms by mentioning how the Saudi puppet regime(my words, not theirs) willfully ignores human trafficking and makes no visible effort to fight it, they neglect to mention how the UAE and Saudi Arabia(KSA) actively ENCOURAGE that trafficking because of the large, wealthy client bases in those two nations, many amongst political and business leaders.

The corporate mainstream media(MSM) in the U.S., U.K. or other nations in Western Europe have no interest in seeing a solution to the appalling police brutality in the U.S. that has recently grabbed the attention of viewers worldwide. If the violence ever subsided somehow, the MSM would lose tons of 'shock value' and folks would go back to their blogs and chatrooms as the MSM's ratings plummeted back to their typical low, modern level. For now, the MSM in the U.K. and U.S. have a pseudo-valid excuse for ignoring the illegal war of invasion in Yemen and the human rights violations there. However, when the police brutality media bandwagon runs out of steam, the MSM will be right back in their previous state of cowardice as they fail to report on the stomach-churning alliances the "leaders of democracy" have established with the KSA and UAE.

Anyone who would bring young girls to the frontlines of battle with adult male soldiers obviously has a gravely warped mindset, and the details of what those girls suffer are practically unspeakable. However, as wicked as it is, you can SORT of grasp how an invading force would try to recruit local BOYS to assist their invasion(i.e., using them as discreet spies to scout out enemy positions). For those of you believe that the boys somehow escaped the same fate the girls met or earned the respect of the adult soldiers by fighting, think again:
(PDF) Sexual Exploitation of Child Soldiers.

If the cowards in the mainstream corporate media in the U.K. and U.S. barely discuss the illegal invasion of Yemen itself, then how little will they work to expose the disgusting violations cited above? It's pretty tough for anyone with a conscience to support his/her country's war efforts when the government has allies like the aforementioned ones.

This is a surprisingly detailed article from one of the more mainstream news outlets, and they even take that rare step of calling out the internationally-recognized Saudi puppet government for being largely complicit in the sex slave trade. Their description of the acting regime isn't as blunt as mine, and they didn't include a historical backdrop as to how that bogus government was installed, but this is decent journalism nevertheless, and the information is pretty much current, despite the April 2018 article release date. If you'd like to know how this escapes the attention of the corporate TV mainstream news media(MSM) in the U.K. and U.S., just read this next article on how the Secretary-General of the U.N. has been bought off with Saudi donations:

Much like the U.N., the MSM has wealthy Saudi and UAE investors and corporate bosses who have multimillion-dollar transactions with those countries so--as is the case with Mr. Guterres--this buys their cowardly silence. This also raises sort of an interesting academic question: Is the U.N. better than the MSM because they at least briefly mention the Coalition's war crimes from time to time rather than ignoring them completely as the MSM does?....Or are they worse for their appalling moral hypocrisy because they recognize the evil for what it is yet turn a blind eye to it when they've been bribed to do so?

Even if you--rightfully--have serious doubts about the honesty and accuracy of the reports that we are given by government and corporate mainstream media(MSM), there's no arguing that social structures and daily routines in many of our countries have vastly changed due to the administrative response to the coronavirus. As the article above mentions, present circumstances haven't slowed down but rather PROPELLED the global sex trafficking network, and it specifically names Yemen and Uganda as hardest hit.

As a UN-friendly media outlet, this agency doesn't hold the UN's leaders accountable for turning a blind eye to the sex-slave trade in Saudi Arabia, the UAE or Qatar, but it's good that they at least comment on a side effect of the coronavirus panic that is completely ignored by the despicable, pretentious cowards in the MSM in the U.K. and U.S.

This article is from less than two weeks ago, but I can already give you an update--thanks to some of my Yemeni friends--that the Resistance forces have hit critical Saudi targets and caused major damage in just this past week.

War itself is never anything we should celebrate but, in this case, repelling the Coalition invasion will not only hugely cripple the Saudi/UAE/al-Qaeda-run sex-slave trade in Yemen but return a sense of normalcy, in general, to the daily lives of Yemenis. It will take a long, long time to rebuild after several years of bombings, and the U.K. and U.S. won't quit in their quest to steal Yemen's abundant natural resources;however, compelling Saudi Arabia to withdraw from the Coalition would force the Brits and Americans to rely solely on their terrorist cell allies since neither country can afford to directly engage in full-scale war in Yemen in the current political climate. While terrorist factions can still inflict damage, they will be MUCH easier to manage for the legit Yemeni government after the Saudi military's air bombings have stopped and the national infrastructure has been stabilized.

If/when the Saudis have surrendered and their puppet regime in Yemen has been expelled,there will no longer be a strong reason to waste time whitewashing their war crimes from the invasion. Will that give any motivation to the cowards in the British and American corporate media to begin reporting the truth? VERY unlikely, sad to say.

This 2 1/2-minute clip contains a few grisly scenes that we've seen in some previous thread posts, but the stories of the victims MUST be heard by anyone with compassion and a conscience, and the cowards in the corporate mainstream media(MSM) in the U.K. and U.S. certainly aren't anywhere near to holding up their end of the bargain. If there is any treatment of this topic at all by the MSM, it might be once every 6 months, at most, and it will be a VERY brief piece at the end of the hour when most viewers have tuned out or taken a bathroom break. Of course, the perpetrators are depicted as random criminal gangs, as opposed to terrorists who are funded and armed by Western democracies(oligarchies, in reality) and trained by UK/US close allies in Saudi Arabia.

This is a continuation of the themes from last week's post and--if the stories are told at ALL by the corporate media in the U.K. and U.S.--they are narrated as if the sufferers were simply victims of bad luck instead of a well-organized alliance between Western leaders and terrorist factions, which is an embarrassing reality.

The information from this page comes mainly from CIA publications, which is enough to warrant suspicion because the CIA constantly lies about its espionage and subversive activities in other nations. However, the included data about Yemen has been backed up by other, far-more-trustworthy sources and, in this case, the CIA has no motive for lying because the current developments in Yemen pose no threat to the agency's objectives. Furthermore, as intelligence officers, the CIA has much more access to ongoing events than the great majority of journalists do.

Obviously, the CIA reports neglect to mention how the U.S. government(AND the UK's) is propping up the puppet regime and supporting the terrorists who actually conduct the sex trafficking, but that's still significantly better than what the cowards in the U.K. and U.S. corporate mainstream media do. That is, concoct 20 different ways to tell us the EXACT same info about the coronavirus that was already released in government pressers while ignoring the hideous war crimes of their nation's military forces.

The sad story above took place before al-Qaeda had really established itself in Yemen, but fellow terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood(MB) had already fortified itself many years before and used their political puppets to guarantee that child marriage remained legal, although a clear majority of the Yemeni people wanted to ban it. For the record, the MB and al-Qaeda started out with lots of petty, verbal, ideological debates. However, most recently, the chiefs of each faction have learnt to negotiate with each other so that both groups can cut up their own 'piece of the pie'. After all, they both have the same sickening mindset, deep down.

Not all sex trafficking is for one-night or short-term prostitutes; rather, much of it provides non-consenting brides--like the woman in the article above--too. The corporate mainstream media(MSM) in the U.K. and U.S. always insinuate that these sad stories are the by-product of a backward culture, yet how do they explain Jimmy Savile or Jeffrey Epstein(amongst a HOST of others) in their OWN countries? Even more relevantly, how does the MSM justify that their so-called democractic leaders not only form alliances with sex trafficking nations but also facilitate the military exploits of those governments and their "friendly" terrorist cells?....Those were just rhetorical questions, as we all know that the MSM is far too cowardly to thoroughly tackle such issues :rolleyes:

We've seen the developments mentioned in the article above in previous posts in this thread, and now it appears that the UAE has re-established the use of illegal, secret detention facilities. While there is no mention of women and children in this particular article, the UAE has shown no prior reluctance for kidnaping and detaining them in other secret prisons. Victims disappear for even years at a time, and several have been shipped off in the sex-slave trade in the past. There is plenty of evidence to prove that the UAE hasn't gotten one iota more humane with their treatment of prisoners in 2020.

Just to clarify, when the article refers to the UAE (and the same is true of Saudi Arabia) as "hunting al-Qaeda militants," we're talking about smaller, rogue, extreme factions of al-Qaeda who refuse to co-operate with the U.K. and U.S. out of a sense of religious, ideological purity. The larger, more powerful al-Qaeda factions are both funded and armed by the Western democracies and have even fought side-by-side with them in battle, which has been caught on camera. Naturally, the U.S. Defense Department trots out their spokeswoman, Dana White, to deny that the U.S. engages in torture in their interrogations, but that was disproven by hidden video at Guantanamo Bay. Still, there's no fear of backlash from these lies because the total cowards in the corporate mainstream media--as is the case with the BBC in the U.K.--will now do anything to justify military invasion, even turning a blind eye to war crimes.
