Yemen – The Mainstream Narrative is Grossly Misleading


Yemen-civilians-killed-Saudi-Arabia-UN
Double standards
A coalition led by Saudi-Arabia and supported by Western leaders has been bombing Yemen for about a month; it’s a clearcut international aggression and an extremely a-symmetric conflict.
But we’ve heard no calls for a ‘humanitarian intervention’ by NATO or a no-fly zone to prevent the now more than 1500 bombing raids from continuing and hitting also civilian targets.
It’s not that international law is blatantly violated; sadly that has been seen before. It is the roaring absence of a clear condemnation by the UN, EU/NATO countries – usually calling themselves ‘the international community’ – and by the Western mainstream media.
Substance plays a minor role. What is right or wrong depends on who is doing what. This war is OK because the Saudi dictatorship and its coalition members are Western allies and armed by NATO countries.
The convenient but wrong narrative
Furthermore, the narrative has twisted this into a proxy war between Saudi-Arabia and the West on one side and Iran, alone, on the other side blaming the latter for its alleged support to the Houthis.
It is no wonder that a group of eminent scholars on Yemen have published an open letter in Washington Post in which, among other things, they condemn the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
They add, diplomatically, that
“A complex, local conflict has been overshadowed by the narrative of a regional proxy war between Saudi and Iranian interests. The Saudi, as well as Hadi, accuse the Houthis of being Iranian puppets. Some analysts say the connection between Tehran and the Houthis has been exaggerated.”
The UN Security Council passes a resolution condemning the Houthis, drafted by Jordan, a bombing coalition country and thereby de facto endorsing the aggression.
It seems that the UN Secretary-General is unaware of Articles 99 and 100 of the Charter. Only a couple of days later, the UN Yemen mediator resigns, conspicuously.
The absence of diversity in mainstream analyses of critical questions and the lack of sense of justice is appalling in that it leaves the world with the perverse “might makes right” philosophy unchallenged. An exaggeration?
Just try to imagine the Western generalised reaction had Iran bombed Yemen or somebody else – including civilian targets – the last three weeks with the support of, say, Russia and China.

The "War On Cash" Migrates To Switzerland

Banks Increasingly Refuse Cash Withdrawals – Switzerland Joins the Fun

The war on cash is proliferating globally. It appears that the private members of the world’s banking cartels are increasingly joining the fun, even if it means trampling on the rights of their customers.
Yesterday we came across an article at Zerohedge, in which Dr. Salerno of the Mises Institute notes that JP Morgan Chase has apparently joined the “war on cash”, by “restricting the use of cash in selected markets, restricting borrowers from making cash payments on credit cards, mortgages, equity lines and auto loans, as well as prohibiting storage of cash in safe deposit boxes”.
This reminded us immediately that we have just come across another small article in the local European press (courtesy of Dan Popescu), in which a Swiss pension fund manager discusses his plight with the SNB’s bizarre negative interest rate policy. In Switzerland this policy has long ago led to negative deposit rates at the commercial banks as well. The difference to other jurisdictions is however that negative interest rates have become so pronounced, that it is by now worth it to simply withdraw one’s cash and put it into an insured vault.
Having realized this, said pension fund manager, after calculating that he would save at least 25,000 CHF per year on every CHF 10 m. deposit by putting the cash into a vault, told his bank that he was about to make a rather big withdrawal very soon. After all, as a pension fund manager he has a fiduciary duty to his clients, and if he can save money based on a technicality, he has to do it.

India: Scores dead and injured following Nepal earthquake *GRAPHIC*

 



The impact of the 7.9 magnitude earthquake that rocked Nepal was felt in Bihar state on Saturday, with more than 60 people reported dead from tremors in India in total. Doctors were seen tending to injured adults and children at hospitals in Bihar. So far, five NDRF (National Disaster Response Force) teams have been deployed to help injured and trapped citizens.

Nepal Update: Death toll climbs to over 1,500 in 7.9-mag earthquake

 



A 7.9-magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal and India, killing more than 1,500 people. The most severe damage was seen in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, where buildings collapsed, causing numerous injuries. Read More: http://on.rt.com/l9gb80

Germany Prepares For "Plan B", Says Greece Would "Need Not Only A Third Bailout, But Fourth, Fifth Or Even More" | Zero Hedge

Germany Prepares For "Plan B", Says Greece Would "Need Not Only A Third Bailout, But Fourth, Fifth Or Even More" | Zero Hedge

It has been a very disturbing 24 hours for Greece.
It all started during yesterday's surprisingly short, just one hour long Eurozone finmin meeting in Riga, where Yanis Varoufakis not only got the most "hostile" reception yet being called "a time-waster, gambler, and amateur", but for the first time one minister openly saidthat maybe it was time governments prepared for the plan B of a Greek default. This happened after Jeroen Dijsselbloem slammed the door on Varoufakis' proposal for early cash after partial reforms.
"A comprehensive and detailed list of reforms is needed," Dijsselbloem told a news conference following a meeting in Riga. "A comprehensive deal is necessary before any disbursement can take place ... We are all aware that time is running out."
And so, what was once anathema, namely the official hints that a Grexit is being contemplated at the highest ranks, has now become almost commonplace, courtesy of the backstop provided by the ECB's QE, which has lulled everyone into a sense of calm because somehow the hope has been kindled that the ECB (which is rapidly running out of government bonds to buy) can offset the realization that what was once an "unbreakable union" is suddenly not only breakable, but no longer a union. As such the trillions in deposit outflows that will sweep the periphery are somehow to be ignored because, well, "Draghi."
This continued earlier today, when none other than German Finance Minister Schaeuble hinted that Berlin was preparing for a possible Greek default, drawing a parallel with the secrecy of German reunification plans in 1989.
As Reuters reports, at a briefing with reporters after a tense meeting of euro zone finance ministers on Greece on Friday, Schaeuble was asked if euro zone finance ministers were working on a "Plan B" in case negotiations on funding with cash-strapped Athens fail.
"You shouldn't ask responsible politicians about alternatives," Schaeuble answered, adding one only need to use one's imagination to envisage what could happen.
He indicated that if he were to answer in the affirmative that ministers were working on a Plan B -- what to do when Greece runs out of money and cannot pay back its debt -- he could trigger panic.

To explain his position, he drew a parallel with the secrecy that was necessary during the initial stage of planning for German reunification in 1989.

"If back then a minister in charge -- I was one of them -- would have said beforehand, we have a plan for reunification, then the whole world probably would have said: 'The Germans have gone completely crazy.'"
He is correct, but what is left unsaid is that the mere suggestion that Grexit no longer not being contemplated is a major escalation in Europe's attempts to launch a bank run, which they have done an admirable job at so far, leading to more than half of total Greek deposits being funded by the ECB's ELA as of this moment.
In other words, should the ECB boost the haircut on Greek bank collateral, and both a depositor bail-in and capital controls become inevitable.

Nepal: 7.9 earthquake, felt in India, rocks Nepal killing at least 108

 



A powerful earthquake of 7.9 magnitude rocked Kathmandu on Saturday, causing injuries and the collapse of centuries-old temples, buildings and homes. Among the landmarks left in ruins is Kathmandu's infamous Dharahara tower, where at least 50 people are believed to be trapped. Causalities and injuries are expected to be high, with Nepal's Home Ministry currently saying at least 71 people have been killed in the earthquake, although it is too early to estimate how high the figure will rise with local police already reporting that at least 108 people have lost their lives.

According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), the quake struck an area between Kathmandu and the city of Pokhara. Tremors were felt as far away as the Indian capital Delhi.

New robot tested for probing damaged reactor
Nuclear & Energy Apr. 25, 2015 - Updated 00:15 UTC-4
Engineers have tested a new robot designed to probe a damaged reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company plans to use the device to view inside the containment vessel of the No. 2 reactor.
The robot is shaped like a scorpion and is equipped with front and rear cameras. Once inside the containment vessel, it is designed to raise its rear camera and capture images of its surroundings.
Engineers tested the robot on Friday at a factory in Yokohama City. The machine was inserted into a simulated section of the No. 2 reactor through a pipe 10 centimeters in diameter. It moved slowly on a rail-like structure to the center of a location under the reactor.
Tokyo Electric Power Company plans to implement the device at the No. 2 reactor as early as this summer.
TEPCO officials say radiation levels inside the No. 2 containment vessel reach 70 sieverts, which is higher than in the No. 1 unit.
They say they will implement the probe carefully by measuring radiation levels as they go. They say the new device can withstand radiation exposure of up to 1,000 sieverts.
Kazuo Sudo of the robot's maker Toshiba says the challenge is difficult as the situation inside the reactor is not known. He said engineers fear narrow parts of the rail and obstacles may hamper the robot's movement.
Sudo said that if the probe can find the location and condition of the molten fuel, it should help engineers figure out how to remove it.
A version of the robot sent into the No. 1 reactor was not able to see the condition of melted nuclear fuel, as it was unable to reach far enough under the reactor.

Man arrested over Tokyo drone incident
Japan Apr. 24, 2015 - Updated 20:14 UTC-4
Japanese police have arrested a man suspected of landing a drone on the rooftop of Prime Minister's Office in Tokyo. The aircraft was found on Wednesday.
Tokyo police say the 40-year-old man turned himself in at a police station in Obama City, Fukui Prefecture at about 8 PM on Friday. They say he lives in the city.
Investigators detected traces of radioactive substances inside a container attached to the aircraft.
The man told police that he landed the drone as an anti-nuclear act. He also said he put sand from Fukushima in the container.
The prefecture is home to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant crippled in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Police say the man brought with him sand and what appears to be a drone controller.
They say they have found a blog that may have been written by someone involved in the incident. The blog showed photos of a similar drone and container.
There is also a description of a drone flight in the early hours of April 9th.

NRA meeting on Takahama after injunction
Nuclear & Energy Apr. 23, 2015 - Updated 03:43 UTC-4
Japan's nuclear regulators continue to take steps to restart reactors at a plant in central Japan. They say their work is not affected by a recent court decision blocking such a restart.
Nuclear Regulation Agency officials met on Thursday to review progress at the No. 3 and 4 reactors at Kansai Electric's Takahama plant in Fukui Prefecture.

Utility plans mid-July restart of Sendai reactor
Nuclear & Energy Apr. 23, 2015 - Updated 00:50 UTC-4
Kyushu Electric Power Company says it will push back the planned restart of a reactor at its Sendai nuclear plant due to a delay in onsite inspections.
This move follows the dismissal by a district court on Wednesday of a request by local residents to block the restart of 2 reactors at the plant.

Google's Plan to "Estimate Web Sources' Trustworthiness" | Space News

 



Many disturbing examples demonstrate that scientific debate and inquiry on the Internet is not always free nor open. One such example may be Google's recently announced plan to begin manipulating search engine results to reward websites based on their apparent factual soundness. The stated purpose of the plan is to reduce in Google searches the visibility of sites that promote “misinformation.” Why was this plan constructed, and what effect will it have on the public’s use of the Google search engine as a means of inquiry?

Zahi Hawass Storms out of Debate with Graham Hancock before it Begins

 



For more than a year the encounter that took place at the Mena House Hotel, Giza Egypt, on 22 April 2015 between famed Egyptologist Dr Zahi Hawass and controversial alternative historian Graham Hancock, had been billed as"the first open debate between the representatives of two completely different versions of history." On the night of the event, however, as Graham Hancock was focussing his slides prior to giving his opening presentation, and before most of the audience had even entered the room, Dr Hawass saw that one slide contained a photograph of Hancock’s colleague Robert Bauval, originator of the Orion correlation theory with whom Dr Hawass has had disagreements for many years. Dr Hawass immediately became furiously angry and began to shout at Hancock and at Hancock’s wife Santha (Santha is wearing the white dress in the video). Hawass demanded that Hancock censor his talk to remove all references to Robert Bauval and the Orion correlation theory. When Hancock explained that the alternative view of history that he was on stage to represent could not exclude the Orion correlation and therefore could not exclude Robert Bauval, Dr Hawass, again shouting, marched out of the debating room. One member of the audience who was present managed to record part of Dr Hawass’s meltdown which is the subject of this video.
Meanwhile, as the audience began to arrive, frantic negotiations took place off stage between the conference organisers and Dr Hawass. Finally Dr Hawass agreed to return and give his talk and answer questions from the audience, but he refused absolutely to hear or see Hancock’s talk, or to engage in any debate with Hancock. Hancock therefore gave his talk to the audience without Dr Hawass present (Dr Hawass sat in a room outside the conference hall while Hancock spoke). When Hancock had finished he answered questions from the audience. Then Dr Hawass entered, gave his talk, answered questions from the audience and left. During Dr Hawass’s Q&A he was asked a question about the 11,600-year-old megalithic site of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and whether it had any impact on his assessment of the disputed age of the megalithic Great Sphinx of Giza (which Hancock and others have theorised may be of similar antiquity). Unfortunately it appeared that Dr Hawass was completely ignorant of the existence or implications of Gobekli Tepe so he was unable to answer the question, which he passed on to the moderator who also happened to be an Egyptologist and whose knowledge of Gobekli Tepe was also clearly incomplete (for example the moderator stated that Gobekli Tepe dates from the “late eleventh millennium BC through the tenth millennium BC” whereas in fact the dates presently established for Gobekli Tepe are from 9600 BC through 8200 BC, i.e. from 11,600 years ago to 10,200 years ago). Hancock did at that point have a brief opportunity to stand up and give his own point of view on Gobekli Tepe and on its implications for the age of the Sphinx, and this video can be viewed here:https://youtu.be/q4NnCAZcxHgrel=0

11-Year-Old Boy Removed From Mother For Defending Her Need For Medicinal Cannabis | Zero Hedge

11-Year-Old Boy Removed From Mother For Defending Her Need For Medicinal Cannabis | Zero Hedge

Yesterday Shona Banda, the Kansas medical marijuana activist whose home was searched after her 11-year-old son challenged anti-pot propaganda at school, failed to regain custody of the boy, who is now under the control of Child Protective Services (CPS). “I am not giving up,” Banda said after yesterday’s family court hearing. “I will get him, and I am not going to stop until I do.”

Taking a child away from its parents is one of the most serious and emotionally traumatizing things you can do. Anyone tasked with such extraordinary power should take the responsibility extremely seriously. Unfortunately, that’s not how Child Protective Services (CPS) in Kansas sees things.
This is the story of an 11-year-old boy who bravely defended his mom’s used of cannabis oil during a anti-drug program at his school. His mother suffers from Crohn’s disease and uses cannabis oil to treat her symptoms. If she lived here in Colorado, or any of the other 23 states enlightened enough to permit adults to use a plant for medical purposes, her son (who obviously loves his mom enough to defend her in class) would still be with her.
This is just the latest example of bureaucrats who think they know best doing untold damage for no good reason. They are the ones who should be charged with abuse and neglect. Absolutely horrifying. From Reason:
Yesterday Shona Banda, the Kansas medical marijuana activist whose home was searched after her 11-year-old son challenged anti-pot propaganda at school, failed to regain custody of the boy, who is now under the control of Child Protective Services (CPS). “I am not giving up,” Banda said after yesterday’s family court hearing. “I will get him, and I am not going to stop until I do.”

The Garden City Police Department, which conducted the search of Banda’s home, insists that the state-sanctioned kidnapping is in the boy’s best interest“The most important thing here is the child’s well-being,” said Capt. Randy Ralston. “That is why it is a priority for us, just because of the danger to the child.” 
Yes, snatching away a young child from his mother because she uses a plant to treat a disease is clearly in the boy’s best interest. What a monumental moron this guy is.

Turkey: Former MP's son shot dead at AKP election office

 



The son of a former Justice and Development Party (AKP) MP was shot dead in the south-eastern Turkish city of Batman, Thursday, after an unidentified assailant let off shots inside one of the ruling party's election bureaus. One other person was injured in the attack and is currently in hospital.

The assailant reportedly shot four or five times in the offices, before fleeing the scene when he was arrested. The attack on Abit Nasiroglu, the son of former AKP MP Nezir Nasiroglu, was reportedly linked to a dispute over money, and not related to the man's politics. 

Several election bureaus have been attacked in the run-up to Turkey's general election set for June 7.

Zahi Hawass vs Graham Hancock on significance of Gobekli Tepe

IMF IS A FOUNDING MEMBER OF CHINA'S AIIB: SO WHAT'S GOING ON? - Bankers

IMF IS A FOUNDING MEMBER OF CHINA'S AIIB: SO WHAT'S GOING ON? - Bankers

This important article was shared by Ms. C.Z., and it's worth pondering for its own implications. And quite frankly, there are so many sets of implications here that I don't really know which one to focus on, except that the article itself focuses very conveniently on one of them, so that's the rabbit hole we'll go down. Here's the article:
The first thing that struck me about this article was that it was written by F. William Engdahl, one of my favorite authors in the "alternative" field commenting on issues of current politics and policy. What first struck me (and I wish I had read this article prior to doing last Thursday's News and Views from the Nefarium), was that Engdahl is seeing things more or less as I am seeing them:
"Germany is a founding member as France. So is Luxemburg, even Great Britain. Putin’s Russia and India are also among the founders. To the surprise of many, so is the International Monetary Fund (IMF), an institution that until now has been a pillar of the dollar system. We are talking about China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank or AIIB. The question is whether the AIIB is on its way to become the seed crystal of a new monetary order that could replace the destructive influence of the dollar? Or will it be infected by Trojans like the UK and the IMF? The answer could well shape the architecture of a new world in which the dollar and its bloated debt structures no longer dictate to the entire world what their economic policies shall be.
"In October 2014, China announced it was creating a new international bank to finance major infrastructure projects across Asia. The prime driver for China was to finance their New Silk Road high-speed Eurasian rail and also sea infrastructure projects and the refusal of the United States to agree to major IMF voting reform that would give China and other emerging economic nations more say. Beijing announced they will give $50 billion to start the new bank. At the time, Washington and most of the rest of the world ignored the bank, while the Obama Administration attacked the AIIB for possibly lacking transparency or sufficient concern for environmental risks, patent diversions from the reality, namely, that the AIIB represents a strategic threat to continued American global dollar hegemony."

Swedish Paper Manufacturing Giant Blacklisted for Child Labor Practices | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

Swedish Paper Manufacturing Giant Blacklisted for Child Labor Practices | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

Stora Enso – a Swedish paper manufacturing giant – has been blacklisted after investigations into its supply chain in Pakistan showed that the company was knowingly using child labor. In March, AP7, a major Swedish pension fund, sold off its $4.1 million stake in Stora.
AP7 is a Swedish government owned pension fund that caters to over three million Swedes and is required to follow strict state-mandated policies to invest only in companies that abide by international treaties that Sweden has signed. The fund owns shares in some 2,600 companies and has the power to exclude a company for five years for failure to uphold environmental, human rights or labor law.
The fund investigated two mills – Kasu Mill in the northern agricultural region of Punjab and the Karachi mill, which is located in the center of Pakistan’s largest metropolitan city. Both are operated by Bulleh Shah Packaging, a subsidiary of Packages Ltd. of Pakistan. Stora owns a 35 percent share in a joint venture with Packages Ltd.
In March Veckans Affarer, a Swedish business paper, published a report that revealed that Stora has been aware of the use of child labor in its waste paper supply chain in Pakistan since 2012 but done nothing about it.
The report detailed how subcontractors hire child laborers as scavengers to work the country’s massive waste dumps in search for cheap recycled paper, which is then sold to a middleman or directly to Bulleh Shah for collection.
In Sahiwal, Punjab, for example, 30 children gathered waste paper for approximately 10 hours in hazardous conditions. Affarer confirmed – via a receipt from the children’s employer – that the collected waste was ultimately sold to Bulleh Shah.
