The FT sheds its crocodile tears for Yemen

In response to an FT View on 10th September 2017, entitled ‘Yemen’s misery calls out for global intervention'

“Eclipsed by the ostensibly greater geopolitical stakes of the carnage in Iraq and Syria, this ancient country has been largely ignored by the world as its people face catastrophe” - FT View

Utter rubbish. It has not been largely ignored by the ‘world’ – the UN has been flagging this as a humanitarian nightmare for months. It has been ignored by western governments and their servile media.

Why?  Well it might have something to do with the fact that the US, the UK and France, have been supplying arms and know-how to the head-chopping thugs running Saudi Arabia…so that they can mete out the death and destruction in Yemen.

What you don't mention, however, is that Saudi is the same ‘ally’ that has supplied most of the terrorists that have been on ‘regime change duty' in Syria and Libya - again with funds and training from the CIA.

The real ‘reason’ Yemen has been ignored is that the Houthis are Shia; and they are supported by Iran – a country that has supplied none of the aforementioned terrorists, but does happen to be a fly in the ointment for the neoconservative maniacs running things in Washington, Tel Aviv and Riyadh.

As for ‘Time running out’…Time has been running out for Yemen for a long time - the cholera has been rife for months, as has starvation, as has kinetic carnage – a fact that has been pointed out by readers in these comments sections a number of times throughout that period. 

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

Your wake-up calls are too late, at least for the media itself.  The time has run out for anyone at the FT to claim any kind of independent thought or journalistic integrity on this subject.
