After "Declaration Of War", Yemen Rebels Threaten Attacks On Saudi Arabia

Tyler Durden's picture

Pre-war tensions in the middle-east are surging almost as fast as the price of crude... and that is just fine with the Saudi Royal Family, which is willing to risk world war if it means pushing the price of oil back to triple digits.

One day after Saudi Arabia warned on Monday that Lebanon had declared war against it because of attacks against the Kingdom by the Lebanese Shi‘ite group Hezbollah - and shortly after the Saudis intercepted what they claimed was an Iranian-made ballistic missile near Riyadh launched by Yemen rebels, on Tuesday Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels threatened retaliation against the ports and airports of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, which this week closed the Yemeni land, sea and air borders.

TV station, showing the ballistic missile allegedly launched at Saudi Arabia.

"All airports, ports, border crossings and areas of any importance to Saudi Arabia and the UAE will be a direct target of our weapons, which is a legitimate right," read a statement released by the rebels' political office, carried by AFP.

The Houthi's statement comes the day after the Saudi coalition announced it had closed all of Yemen's borders, in retaliation for the shot down ballistic missile that had targeted the kingdom's international airport in Riyadh.

Houthi rebels in Yemen

As we reported last night, commenting on Saturday's Houthi attack, the Saudi-led coalition that has been conducting an operation in Yemen since 2015, stated that it "considered the missile launch an act of war against the kingdom" and reserved the right to respond against Iran, who it holds accountable for the attack, in a claim strongly denied by Tehran.

More recently Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman also accused Tehran over alleged arms supplies to the Houthis, with Tehran lashing out at Riyadh's claim it has described as being "contrary to reality." The statement echoed a remark made by US President Donald Trump, who had blamed Iran for the missile launch by Yemeni rebels.

Yemen has been engulfed in a violent war between the government and Houthi rebels backed by army units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh since 2015, with a coalition backed by Saudi Arabia launching an aerial operation in the country at the request of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The United Nations on Monday reported the Saudi-led coalition had prevented two humanitarian aid flights from flying to the war-torn country.

The Crown Prince is way worse than Lil Kim. He's creating a real shit show over there, that will backfire on his handlers. Imagine the fit the MIC would have pitched if Lil Kim had done the same things the Crown Price has done since Saturday. But somehow we are good with the Crown Prince's antics.

there are few governments on earth more deserving of destruction than that of Saudi Barbaria

And the US is helping them slaughter Yemenis who, basically, just dont want to live under a US/Saudi puppet govt.

You who keep citing what you think is prophecy (bibliomancy and practicing of magick) and waiting for the 'AntiChrist'...

open your eyes.

The AntiChrist is here, and he's been here - always.

He slaughtered children in Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Libya and Yemen, to name just a few places.

And in most every needless slaughter and spiling of blood that cries oit for vengeance the United States is helping.

Mystery Babylon is no mystery... The US, Saudi, UK, and Israeli governments and their servants are Hell's Kingdom on earth.

When was the last time you read the Sermon on the Mount and asked the SPIRIT OF CHRIST to compel you?

All that aside if you prefer - we should be bombing Riyadh, not Yemen.

You reply as though I support the Saudis or somehow missed our complicity in their deeds.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Just to be clear, the side I support are my wife, my kids, some of my extended family, and a handful of those I consider friends.  As for everyone else, including our very own government, cast your lot and best of luck to you.  The bell has been tolling, loudly, for all of us for some time.

And Saudis uses fucking oil money to spread their religious hatred shit all around the world.

The intolerant, conservative Wahabi Saudi Islamists are being removed as we watch.  The next stage, the gathering of regional mudpuppets/cannon fodder Saudi/American allies, for the move against Iran is being prepared.

The Saudi's and their regional allies are the mudpuppets the American's/Israeli's will arm, supply, and utilize to weaken and wage war with Iran.

Always soon for millennialists.

"Millenarianism, from Latin "containing a thousand", is the belief by a religious, social, or political group or movement in a coming major transformation of society, after which all things will be changed."

So far, every end of the world prediction has turned out wrong, a 100% failure rate. Not a good track record.

Oh so the rebels have a political office do they? 


I mean sure why not, its important to have office real estate for PR when you are fighting a guerrilla war. I mean certainly this office could never be found right????

Yemen's Houthi owe the Saudi a hell of a lot of payback for the ongoing Saudi ethnic cleansing campaign.

Maybe we should just let them fight each other. But of course US has to interfere every fucking quarrel and end up fighting separately to each party. As a result, these countries realise they are not each other enemy and become friend, US becomes their common enemies. This is how fuck up when US involves in foreign affairs.

The Saudi Barbarians (unlike USSANS) enjoyed their Vietnam debacle in Yemen so much (where their oil is) that they insist on doing it all over again. However, the anglozionazi cheesecloth axis will be no more successful this time around than the last time they tried.

Chanting Houthi Brothers kick as inside the Crypt of Saud.

The Ferrari Revolution revs up as the effete and squealing princlings turn on each other.

Continuing to do the dirty work for the hook nosed dual citizens, the USA has provided the Iranians, through bozo and the Clintons Uranium One boondoggle, yellow cake uranium to make atomic weapons.

Not to be outdone, the rag headed saudis have been purchasing weapons worth TRILLIONS of US dollars, through Poppy Bush, Billy the rapist, W, Bozo, and now Trump.

This is very likely to end up a shit show of epic proportion.

The entire Middle East may find itself in complete destruction.

The fighting and discord in the ME go back to the days of Jacob and Esau. I say let them go at it and finally get it over with. They love to fight.

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

"In any case, let me return to my central argument that deception is central to Jewish behavior — and it is not something they are ashamed of. As evidence of this, look at one of the founding myths Jews have of themselves, the biblical story of Jacob and Esau:

And the Lord said unto Rebecca, “Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.” And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled…the first came out all red, all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. And after that came his brother out, and his hand took ahold of Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob. (Gen. 25:23-26)

Historian Albert Lindemann unpacks the meaning of this story in Esau’s Tears: Modern Anti-Semitism and the Rise of the Jews:

Indeed, the division between Jew and Gentile goes to the very origins and structures of western civilization. It predates the advent of Christianity and may be found in the earliest texts of the Old Testament . . . In those texts of the Hebrew Bible the mythical origins of the division between Jews and others are described, and a thought-provoking explanation for the antagonism of the two groups is offered. The account in Genesis of Esau and Jacob, twin brothers born to Rebecca and Isaac, has evoked a seemingly endless cycle of interpretations. Already in the earliest Jewish commentaries on the text in Genesis one encounters not only the rich layers of meaning but also the elusiveness, the profound ambiguity in the relationship between Jew (in archetype, Jacob) and Gentile (in archetype, Esau).

What is the archetype of the Jew in the Jews’ own founding myth? It is that of the liar or trickster. Recall what happened in Genesis 27:5-45. Nearing death, the elderly Isaac sent Esau out to trap game in order to prepare a meal appropriate to the blessing Isaac was to bestow upon his first son. With Rebecca’s participation, Jacob deceived his father into believing that he was in fact Esau. Numerous times Isaac suspected a ruse, finally asking, “Are you really my son Esau?” “I am,” Jacob lied. Jacob was ultimately successful in deceiving his father and received his blessing.

This passage is a stark instance in which we see one origin for the still-common Jewish belief that others (goyim) are to serve them. “Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers.”

Also of note is Isaac’s ambivalent blessing to his deceived son Esau: “Behold, away from the fatness of the earth shall your dwelling be, and away from the dew of heaven on high. By your sword you shall live, but your brother you shall serve.” About the only hopeful note comes when Isaac concludes:

**** “But when you break loose you shall break his [Jacob’s] yoke from your neck.******"

Of course the story is a metaphor and were it not the Ashkenazi Jews have tenuous connections at best to pre-Christian Palestine.

On the other hand my people are descendents of Noah's daughters... or so it was said long ago.

The entire middle east as an unoccupied glass parking lot is the well as the muslime region of the caucasus.

The "plan" is the Yinon plan. No one wants glass if there is significant hydrocarbons underneath it. The peasants and the majority doing the fighting aren't in on the plan. Canon fodder comes in all colors and languages.

Last weekend's purge of the royal family and the increasing tensions between Iran and Saudi, clearly, are tied together.

The war faction within the house of Saud is ascendant... and therefore, so is the likelihood of war with Iran.

Having worked in the Yemen back country in search of oil , I can say with 100% certainty the Yemeni's are tough as whip leather. Pound for pound the average Yemeni would destroy any Detroit Pit Bull ,
Taliban, or Invader. Also with 100% certainty those people want to be left the fuck all alone. Yemen is an awesome place. The Bedouin and mountain people were nice as hell as long as you don't fuck with them. Obviously we didn't learn a lesson with Afghanistan ...unfortunately the Yemeni's will be a bit tougher . .

As far as offering any advice to potential invaders all I would say is be sure to order body bags in bulk (and get the best pricing) as your going to need them. If I were a betting man money is on the Yemenis.

Weapons superiority will defeat them or annihilate them, if necessary to bring them to heel......The same with hiznollah in Lebanon It is only a matter of how important it becomes to exterminate the Shi'ite horror.  The means exists to exterminate them all.

All weapons superiority can do is reduce cities and infrastructure to rubble. It can't occupy or hold the land however

Saudi cant beat a bunch of sandal wearing, AK47 touting Houtis

It has zero chance of confronting iran

Just a load of war porn to try and boost the price of crude oil.

Saudii was a disparate bunch of camel and goat herders until the Brits organised them pre 1930

The idea it is a monolithic entity and natural hegemon on the peninsula is errant nonesense.

I give it 10 years max before it descends into civil war and fragmentation.

PS. The Jordainian royal family were the hereditary keepers of Mecca long before Sheihk the 1st camel and goat herder was appointed by the Brits.

Yemen's Hadi under 'house arrest' as Riyadh tightens grip in Saudi Arabia

In addition to Hariri and Abbas add another Middle East Puppet of KSA to the list of Mohammad Bin Salam's scalps.  He is bringing his shit show House of Saud down fast.  This shit will not look good when the Houthi's invade from the South and the Shia of the Eastern portion of Saudi Arabia declare independence and the Princes of Saud are knifing each other in Riyadh and its surrounding environs.  

All that is now takes is for Iran's Khomenei and Hezhollah/Lebanon's Nasrallah to light the fuckin match and watch USA's petrodollar piggy big of a kingdom go BOOM!!!

Think, people... Same as it ever was......
Lyrics: Neil Peart

I see the Middle Kingdom between Heaven and Earth
Like the Chinese call the country of their birth
We all figure that our homes are set above
Other people than the ones we know and love

In every place with a name
They play the same territorial game
Hiding behind the lines
Sending up warning signs

The whole wide world
An endless universe
Yet we keep looking through
The eyeglass in reverse
Don’t feed the people
But we feed the machines
Can’t really feel
What international means

In different circles
We keep holding our ground
Indifferent circles
We keep spinning round and round

We see so many tribes — overrun and undermined
While their invaders dream of lands they’ve left behind
Better people — better food — and better beer
Why move around the world when Eden was so near?

The bosses get talking so tough
And if that wasn’t evil enough
We get the drunken and passionate pride
Of the citizens along for the ride

They shoot without shame
In the name of a piece of dirt
For a change of accent
Or the colour of your shirt
Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colourful rag is unfurled

Iran and Iraq fought a real war with huge casaulties and a common border. The Yemen situation is a proxy war that coud but won't be resolved by unconditional surrender. I doubt the saudis have the unity to fight and win in Yemen. They need overwhelming force and unrestrained fighting to kill most of the houthis. Such force must come from another muslim country like Egypt and that is very unlikely. Turkey is only slightly more likely. What is in it for them?
