Bombing missions for strategic alliance.
SANA’A, Yemen (PNN) - August 8, 2017 - Quietly, the Fascist Police States of Amerika has managed to turn its war on Yemen from a “leading from behind with a lot of technical assistance” program to a “if you want something done right, do it yourself” system. While the FPSA has repeatedly referred to the crime against humanity launched against the Yemeni people by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) war, it has provided both with large of amounts of technical assistance, intelligence, and equipment with which to fight it. The FPSA has even engaged in direct combat from time to time, including a now infamous operation that left one Navy SEAL dead.
Now, however, the FPSA has stepped up its involvement to joint operations with Saudi and Emirati forces on the ground in Yemen. The operations have been reported on by mainstream media but in scant articles that only hint at the scope of Amerikan involvement. This has led many to suspect that the Amerikans are more heavily involved than what is being made public.
A contingent of FPSA troops is involved in a Yemeni operation to push al-Qaeda militants from one of their key strongholds in central Yemen, The Pentagon said Friday.
A small number of troops are there to help with “intelligence sharing,” Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said, though he did not rule out that more FPSA forces could be committed to the operation in the coming weeks.
The announcement comes a day after the United Arab Emirates said in a statement that its forces, along with FPSA troops, were supporting the Yemeni military in the Shabwa governorate in a bid to oust al-Qaeda fighters entrenched there. The operation is just the latest FPSA-backed move against the terrorist group, known as al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, and signals the next phase of the invigorated FPSA counterterrorism campaign against the militants that began shortly after Donald Trump took office.
Aside from intelligence sharing, Davis said, the United States is providing midair refueling and overhead reconnaissance for forces involved in the operation. The Bataan Amphibious Ready Group, a collection of FPSA Navy ships loaded with Marines, is in the region and is probably assisting the operation with aircraft and personnel. In the past, amphibious groups much like the Bataan’s have been integral in supporting FPSA-led operations against al-Qaeda in Yemen.
While the FPSA continues to stress that it is not at war with the Houthi rebels, it has provided a massive amount of tactical support to the Saudis who are at war with the Houthis. Interestingly enough, the FPSA is involved directly in Shawba, a province in the south of Yemen, where al-Qaeda has maintained a presence. Southern Yemen is also the region most heavy in oil and gas and it is precisely the oil and gas fields from which al-Qaeda was expelled.
Much like the FPSA operations in Iraq against al-Qaeda militants, supported both by the FPSA and Saudi Arabia, the FPSA is becoming directly involved in the fight against terrorists it supports when those terrorists endanger strategic locations, particularly regions that contain oil and gas. Interestingly enough, it is said that the terrorists did not put up a fight but simply retreated to the mountains.
It is also noteworthy to mention the participation of the United Arab Emirates since the tiny nation declared that it was no longer participating in the Yemeni war only last year. Now, however, U.A.E. is indeed fighting alongside KSA once again. One reason the U.A.E. has returned to Yemen is perhaps because of its previous heavy reliance on Qatar for gas, a relationship that has been severed as a result of the Qatari isolation initiated by KSA. If U.A.E. is able to access the gas from Yemen and able to exploit those resources, it will reduce the collateral economic damage done to the U.A.E. by breaking ties with Qatar and thus eliminate any leverage Qatar may have.
Overshadowed by a number of crises across the world, the Yemeni disaster has largely escaped the scrutiny that other Western imperialist actions have attracted. It is telling that Trump, who is targeted for literally any and everything that comes out of his mouth, is still able to launch military operations in Yemen without criticism from any mainstream outlet.
At this point, the FPSA president is nothing more than a rat in a maze sometimes getting shocked for going in the wrong direction, sometimes being given a little piece of cheese for going in the right direction. It is time for Amerikans to open their eyes and see past the phony “right” and “left” designations and recognize that someone has built a maze and someone is choosing punishments versus rewards.
