Die Propaganda-Matrix

Ob Russland, Syrien oder Donald Trump: Um die geopolitische Bericht­erstattung westlicher Medien zu verstehen, muss man die Schlüsselrolle des amerikanischen Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) kennen.

Im folgenden Beitrag wird erstmals dargestellt, wie das Netzwerk des Councils einen in sich weitgehend geschlossenen, trans­atlantischen Informationskreislauf schuf, in dem nahezu alle relevanten Quellen und Bezugs­punkte von Mitgliedern des CFR und seiner Partnerorganisationen kontrolliert werden.

Auf diese Weise entstand eine historisch einzigartige Informationsmatrix, die klassischer Regierungspropaganda autoritärer Staaten deutlich überlegen ist, indes durch den Erfolg unabhängiger Medien zunehmend an Wirksamkeit verliert.

Jahrzehntelang hatte das Netzwerk des Council on Foreign Relations eine nahezu uneingeschränkte Kontrolle über den geostrategischen Informationsfluss in den NATO-Ländern. Die meisten Menschen hatten keine Möglichkeit zu realisieren, dass sie sich trotz scheinbarer Medienvielfalt tatsächlich in einer dicht gewobenen Informationsmatrix befanden.

Tatsächlich mussten die USA seit dem Krieg gegen Spanien von 1898 für nahezu alle ihre Interventionen einen Vorwand kreieren, um die stetige Expansion der eigenen Einflusssphäre – nach der letztlich alle Imperien streben – moralisch zu legitimieren und die eigene Bevölkerung dafür zu gewinnen – zumal kaum je ein Land so leichtfertig war, die Vereinigten Staaten ohne Not von sich aus anzugreifen.

Hierzu erschufen die USA – wie Karl Rove es ausdrückte – eine eigene, »imperiale« Realität, die von verdeckten Operationen über die mediale Bericht­erstattung bis hin zur Geschichts­schreibung reicht und von den Mitgliedern des Councils und seiner Partnerorganisationen inszeniert und propagiert wird.

Durch das Internet entwickelte sich zudem die Möglichkeit, Informationen dezentral und kostengünstig zu verbreiten und so die Gatekeeper des Councils zu umgehen.

Aus Sicht des Councils stellen solche Publikationen indes eine zunehmende Bedrohung der eigenen Informations- und Deutungshoheit dar.

Yemen: a tragic tale of humanitarian hypocrisy

Humanitarian crises around the world will fail to be resolved if the providers of aid are also the perpetrators.

Where help is needed most, it is becoming increasingly less available. Instead, humanitarian aid is being used as a weapon by the warring parties, as opposed to its intended function of peace.

Behind the biggest aid donors are the very facilitators of the conflict; a western-backed Saudi bombing campaign is accountable for the majority of damage being done.

When the Saudis are responsible for 65% more deaths of children than Houthis and the starvation induced by their blockade as collective punishment, the US and UK’s arms sales to them makes both these countries complicit in this devastating crisis.

To curtail the conflict in Yemen, arms sales to Saudi Arabia must be stopped immediately, access to ports, land, sea and air must be accessible for civilian and aid assistance mobility, and most importantly, the direct perpetrators and facilitators of this devastating human catastrophe should be held accountable.

Deal between Hadi and UAE to sell Yemeni islands!

The Yemenpress news agency gives details about a deal between the Hadi (al-far), and the UAE includes the lease of the island of Socotra and the island of Myon, and the port of Aden to the UAE for 25 years renewable, in violation of the Constitution and the Yemeni law.

The Yemeni news agency said that the agreement came under Saudi pressure on Hadi to close the page of his differences with the UAE, which reflected negatively on the alliance.

According to the site, the contract between the two parties stipulate exclusively the leasing of the islands of Socotra, Moun and Port of Aden for a period of 25 years, and the UAE (UAE) shall not allow any Yemeni citizen to come from outside the said islands except under a special license.

According to the site, the agreement stipulates the right of the UAE to prospect for oil and gas and any mineral wealth on land and sea in consultation with the lessor and the rent is equal

On the other hand, the UAE is committed to stopping support for any entity or group against the legitimacy.

Yemen: Hiding Behind Coalition’s Unlawful Attacks

Lack of Transparency Underscores Need for International Inquiry

Members of the Saudi-led coalition have sought to avoid international legal liability by refusing to provide information on their role in alleged unlawful airstrikes in Yemen, Human Rights Watch said today.

“No coalition member can claim clean hands in Yemen until all its members explain their role in scores of documented unlawful attacks,”

The failure of the coalition or any coalition member to credibly investigate violations by their own forces for more than two years of armed conflict underscores the need for an independent international investigation into alleged violations of international human rights and humanitarian law by all parties to the conflict, Human Rights Watch said.

Yemen Economic Bulletin: How currency arbitrage has reduced the funds available to address the humanitarian crisis

The disparity between the official exchange rate and the market exchange rate of the Yemeni rial that developed during the current conflict led to large-scale profiteering through currency arbitrage. In particular, Yemeni banks exchanging foreign funds for international humanitarian organizations reaped significant profits at the expense of the intended aid recipients in Yemen.

Is Sudan about to withdraw troops from Yemen?

In June, Sudan sent additional troops to support the Saudi-led military intervention into Yemen. Exact numbers are not available but estimates and official briefings put the figure at close to 8,000 combat soldiers on the ground. In recent weeks reports of Sudanese casualties have increased.

Undated images of seemingly dead abandoned bodies of Sudanese soldiers are now all over social media

It remains to be seen how resilient Sudanese public opinion will be if the Houthi portrayal of the Sudanese as “cannon fodder” takes hold and the talk of annihilation becomes a reality.

The intense Houthi campaigns, both on the battlefield and in the media, to target Sudan may continue to be a losing struggle as Sudanese troops appear to be staying in Yemen for some time to come.

WFP: Saudi-Arabien soll humanitäre Bedürfnisse im Jemen finanzieren

Saudi-Arabien müsse auch die erforderlichen Schritte zur Behandlung von Krankheiten und Beseitigung des Hungers im Jemen unternehmen, so Beasley. Er forderte zudem die Einstellung der Militärangriffe der arabischen Koalition auf den Jemen.

Saudiarabien blockiert unabhängige Untersuchungen

Vertreter der Uno verlieren zusehends die Geduld angesichts der humanitären Katastrophe in Jemen. Der Menschenrechtsrat drückt sich seit zwei Jahren davor, die Kriegsparteien in die Verantwortung zu nehmen.

Diese Woche hat der Uno-Hochkommissar für Menschenrechte Zeid Raad al-Hussein den dritten Anlauf unternommen, um eine unabhängige internationale Kommission zur Untersuchung von Kriegsverbrechen in Jemen einzurichten. Zwei frühere Initiativen waren gescheitert. Westliche Staaten krebsten vor zwei Jahren unter saudischem Druck zurück und strichen entsprechende Formulierungen aus einer Resolution des Rates.

Saudi Arabia should fund all humanitarian aid to Yemen: WFP

A top United Nations official said Saudi Arabia alone should fund steps to tackle widespread disease and hunger besetting Yemen, where the kingdom has been leading a military campaign for two and a half years.

Comments by David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Programme, were unusually forthright for such a U.N. official in criticizing one party in a conflict. Calling for an end to the coalition’s campaign, he accused the Saudi-led coalition of hampering provision of aid.

Yemen’s Horrifying Cholera Epidemic Keeps Spreading

Yemen’s cholera epidemic is the worst in the world and the worst on record.

The epidemic has spread so quickly in part because of the devastated infrastructure and health care system that have been wrecked by the Saudi-led coalition bombing campaign enabled by the U.S. and other Western governments.

The U.S. and other enablers of the coalition’s war and blockade bear significant responsibility for both the famine and cholera crises in Yemen.

Yemen’s misery calls out for global intervention

A Saudi misadventure has created a terrible humanitarian crisis

The Saudis have used their oil wealth to divide a shifting constellation of actors and tribes, wracked by sectarian and secessionist tensions. Despite the presence of many common tribal links, the Saudis have done little to help the Yemenis build a nation, preferring to finance Wahhabi mosques than modern infrastructure — this, in a country running out of water but awash with guns.

What Yemenis need now, above all, is an end to their misery. They should be forgotten no longer.

The international community continues to ignore the conflict tearing Yemen apart.

The humanitarian situation is growing steadily worse and the parties involved commit serious violations of international humanitarian and human rights law with impunity.

On the political front, the alliance between the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and supporters of former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh looks to be falling apart.

Iranian Unconventional Warfare in Yemen

Taking into account the factors affecting the feasibility, acceptability, and suitability of an Iranian unconventional warfare campaign in Yemen, and the strategic interests of Iran in the Arabian Peninsula, the balance of factors suggests that Iranian sponsorship of the Houthi rebels is a viable option with a strong chance of success at an acceptable level risk.

Troubling Ambiguities in the UAE’s Role in Yemen

The United Arab Emirates has been among Saudi Arabia’s erstwhile allies in Yemen since the beginning of Operation Decisive Storm in March 2015. But throughout the campaign, the UAE has, for various reasons, followed a parallel political and military strategy that has supported an alternate leadership to Hadi’s government in southern Yemen.

What adds to the delicate nature of the Emirati involvement alongside Saudi Arabia––the putative leader of the Arab coalition––are ambitions the UAE wishes to realize in southern Yemen. These ambitions may very well be at the expense of both Yemen’s unity and traditional Saudi Arabian relationships in Yemeni society.

Saudi Strategic Suicide In Yemen And Muslim Scholars

Today, Muslims lack ulama who adapt to this rapidly changing world- socially, politically, economically and spiritually.

The most serious problem facing the Islamic ummah—in its nations, communities, and individuals—even more serious than good leadership, is the chronic deficiency of independent-minded religious scholars willing to scrutinize leadership and speak truth to power when and where necessary.

Back to Yemen, the likely emerging scenario in the foreseeable future is two Yemens along the old borders of Northern and Southern Yemen borders. Then the Somalia model of ‘fragmenting the fragments along clan lines’ would likely ensue.

The conflict in Yemen, the Arab world's most impoverished nation, is a calamity by any measure.

The lack of a political solution has exacted a hideous cost.

And then there's the foreign dimension of the conflict. The Saudi campaign is fueled by weapons it purchased from governments in the West, including those of Britain and the United States.

Yemen: An “entirely man-made catastrophe” – UN human rights report urges international investigation

Human rights violations and abuses continue unabated in Yemen, along with unrelenting violations of international humanitarian law, with civilians suffering deeply the consequences of an “entirely man-made catastrophe”, according to a UN human rights report published on Tuesday.

The report, mandated by the UN Human Rights Council, records violations and abuses of human rights and international humanitarian law over three years, since September 2014.

Pursuant to Human Rights Council resolution 33/16, this report provides an overview of the situation of human rights in Yemen between September 2014 and 30 June 2017.

The news from Yemen is terrible — let’s focus on what can be achieved

It’s clear that a broad peace settlement is not on the horizon.

But even if the conflict shows no signs of exhausting itself, the United States and the international community cannot ignore the fact that the humanitarian and security risks are growing.

The international community has not exhausted all its options. Realistically, the best that can likely be achieved for now is a series of internationally brokered local cease-fires (perhaps mediated by a credible regional interlocutor such as Oman) and an easing of restrictions on humanitarian aid flowing into the country

To salvage their alliance, the Houthis will need to convince Saleh that despite their violent history, they make for stronger allies than some GPC members.

Houthi-Saleh rupture

Yemen’s political scene continues to rest on a knife’s edge, with a significant change but a spark away

The intense rise in tensions in the Houthi-Saleh alliance deescalated in the space of a few days. Credit for this is due to the efforts of the Supreme Political Council headed by Saleh Ali Al-Sammad, who rapidly contained the Misbahi incident, and to the regular meetings that are held between Houthi and GPC leaders.

However, the main reason behind the restoration of calm is Saleh, by means of his speech at Sabaeen in which he pacified his followers, and by means of his pledge to reinforce the fronts with tens of thousands of fighters if the Houthis arm them and pay their salaries.

Houthis Decide to Arrest Former Yemeni President Saleh, End Alliance

Yemeni Houthi militants reportedly decided to terminate their alliance with the General People's Congress party and to arrest its leader former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

local media reported citing a Yemeni source. The Al Arabiya broadcaster reported that the militia has decided to end its alliance with the General People's Congress party headed by Saleh.

https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201709041057068085-houthis-yemen-saleh-alliance/

My comment: This is fake news by Saudi propaganda. The intention simply is to rise unrest, strife and fighting between the Houthis and Saleh followers.

Comment: This is one of the most ridiculous articles you can read. Based on AlArabya morbid fantasy, ''Houthis decided to arrest Saleh and bring him to Saada.''
Whatever the differences in the alliance, it will not be AlArabya input to make either part take Saudi Arabia's side.

U.N. Enablers of ‘Aggressive War’

U.N. investigative reports, like a new one condemning Syria for alleged sarin use, are received as impartial and credible, but are often just more war propaganda from compromised bureaucrats.

The United Nations has, in effect, caved in to the political and financial pressure brought to bear by the United States and its allies. A similar disregard for international law also pervades the U.S. mainstream media and much of the European and Israeli press as well – By Robert Parry

"The UN has no real power or the will to stop the war or force the aggressors to do so."

Over 14,000 Killed in Yemen Conflict – What Next?

The UN report, however, is way off the line to say that this is a ‘’civil war.” This is a US-backed, Saudi-led war on the region's poorest country, which began in March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Before it gets too late, therefore, the world community, the UN in particular, should lay pressure on Riyadh and its main ally the United States to end the unnecessary conflict and take immediate measures to ensure humanitarian relief for civilians. Despite backing the Saudi-led war from the beginning, the US now claims to want to restrain the bombing campaign:

Mohammed discusses the monarchy's violent oppression of the Shia minority; the brutal attack on and destruction of the Shia-majority town of Awamiya, in the eastern Qatif province; and Saudi Arabia's state-sponsored extremist ideology of Wahhabism.

Role of International Humanitarian Organizations in Yemen Put to Question

Humanitarian questions arose on Hodeidah not receiving any aid, despite it being closest to a main seaport. On the contrary, images capturing the situation there continued to spread showing dire cases of famine.

Sheiban, like many other analysts, doubts the effectiveness of the role played by the UN organizations in Yemen. There are two billion dollars, according to a press release issued by Yemeni Information Minister Muammar al-Iryani, spent on humanitarian aid, but with no evident results.

Former US Diplomat Says Yemen’s Ousted President Lost His Legitimacy before International Community

A former US diplomat in Yemen confirmed that the Gulf initiative presented at the beginning of the outbreak of the crisis in Yemen stands as the only way out of the current three-year crisis. He stressed that the international community should push this solution and join forces to save the Yemeni people. former US ambassador to Yemen Gerald M. Feierstein said at a symposium by the Carnegie Center for Research and Research in Washington.

Comment: Well note this is printed in a Saudi newspaper as you can see by its bias. To my mind, Saleh was a problem, but so was Hadi. Hadi's term had already expired and Saleh as eyeing his chances to return. Most of the people of Yemen didn't want either of them - they wanted democracy. The UN and the outside world had to back one of these men as Yemen's new dictator. They chose Hadi. The rest is history. Millions dying. And for what exactly?

Can the plan for a neutral Hodeidah save Yemen?

A plan to place Hodeidah under the supervision of a neutral body has some promise, and could eventually be applied as a model to other areas across the country.
