Saudi Oil and US hypocrisy. Yemen rebellion challenges US-Saudi power.
Sara Flounders, Zafar Bangash
Flounders explains: The entire political brass of the US and of other countries going to Saudi Arabia to show "respect" for the deceased King Abdullah and to meet with the new King Salman shows there will be NO change in the relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia nor with the parasitic relationship with the population as a whole.
Flounders connects the royal Saudi family to the US policy since WWII. The Saudi family completely owns the oil and the people, who have no human rights, can be flogged, stoned, tortured to death and beheaded for simply making a comment on a blog.
Saudi oil money is held in the Western banks, esp. the US banks. The money is held in the Saudi name, but if there were an upheaval, the money would remain in the US banks. So, who needs whom the most?
The Saudi family funds reactionary forces to insure plausible denial for the US involvement (such as Saudi funding contras in Nicaragua under the Reagan regime.)
Zafar Bangash and Phil Taylor discuss (1) the current events in the Mid-East, especially in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iraq and Syria (2) the manipulation of the oil price and (3) the recent exchange of fire between Israel and Hezbollah.
Saudi Arabia: In addition to the political brass, all the weapons manufacturers were in Saudi Arabia to attend the funeral of Saudi monarch Abdullah and to greet the new Monarch, King Salman. They want to make sure the Saudi will continue to buy their weapons.
Bangash puts it all together: The Saudis are terrified. They just lost their king and there is a lot of turmoil inside the kingdom due to the Saudi repression. There are 40,000 political prisoners in Saudi Arabia, who are fighting back with their lives for freedoms for the People. The ruling family needs the assurances of the US and other imperialist countries.
Yemen: Bangash provices the history of Yemen and the forced resignations of Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi and other officials. He notes the "reform" (Wahhabi based) party, Ansarullah, did NOT go on a rampage and kill, much to the consternation of Saudi Arabia.
Bangash and Phil Taylor discuss manipulation price of oil by the US (and allies). It is a game to show who can do without the longest. Goal is for Americans is to take down Russia and Iran's economy.
Head chopping liver eating "moderates" are supported by Saudi Arabia, Jordon, Kuwait, UAE and Turkey, all buying weapons from the US. This is a sophisticated and expensive operation that defies ISIS statements that they are funding themselves.
