UK accused of blocking UN inquiry into claim of war crimes in Yemen

Found 27th Sep 2016
Link in first post

Lovely how we turn a blind eye to the cancer that is Saudi Arabia, even supply them with even more arms than ever before, heck even going as far as nominating them to sit on the UN Human Rights committee.

Lovely how Saudi Arabia is carrying out war crimes in Yemen that is equally ignored largely by the media and by the government. Yet the government is so concerned with the humanitarian crises in Syria (though rightly so) just like they were concerned about the crises in Libya (that worked out well) and Iraq (which also worked out well) so much so we were willing to waltz in illegally because "it was the right thing to do Tone/Dave". Oh wait BAA etc are making a tidy nice profit over selling arms to the Saudi's, it's all fine and above board, nothing to see here. Until of course our government in the not too distant future become concerned about the "crisis" over there where they need our taste of freedom and will use weapons they've bought from us to use against "us"

They didn't investigate it long enough before invading Iraq, assuming Saddam was the culprit due to his endless crimes in his own country. Bush wasn't the smartest of guys either.

We'll have to wait many years before anyone even considers to take any kind of action on the Saudi's. Im sure though, if it came to it, the Saudi's would just offer a oil deal to keep the westerners from sniffing out their tracks.

You coward. First to accuse people but then go crying when you get caught making false accusations and lying.

How convenient. Threads gets magically cleaned up and deletes your post in which you made your spurious claims. My subsequent post copying your deleted quote also got pulled, which showed your lying you lying idiot.

You can thank your buddy mods for helping you out.

You clearly posted I was stalking you but me responding to you first. I then proved that my first foray into the thread was post #87 responding to j4gga. It was you who replied to me #126.

But once I pulled you up on it, like the coward that you are, deleted your post. I had though quoted your deleted post which made you look like the lyer that you are.

And when you realised that my post included your lying comments, you spammed the thread, or mods pulled it, cleaned it to help you out.

You keep on lying Frederick. You make a false accusations about me, are made to look like the lying idiot that you are and then need the mods help to back you up.

You accused me of stalking you by responding to you twice first in the sikhiphobia thread.

I then pointed out my first foray into the thread was to respond to j4gga. It was you who responded to me first on post #126.

Once I pointed out this blatant lie of yours, you quickly deleted your post, but not before I had quoted in my response.

Once you realised you look like a moronic little lyer, you spammed the thread and the mods 'cleaned :up the thread.

Going back on yourself by coming up with other posts just shows me the lying coward that you are.

I don't mind rigorous debate, but when people lie and them get help from mods to cover up, it makes it a joke.

Rubbish no one even at the time thought Iraq had anything to do with it, everyone knew Bush had an axe to grind and was looking for any excuse no matter how poorly thought out.

how on earth does this relate to Yemen? Or do the Yemen comments just relate to hatred against the UK and US - usual Westophobic attitudes in this thread?

Don't worry mods, keep on deleting my posts which show your double standards in helping and backing certain members who make blatant lies and accusations against other members.

EN1GMA, it's not worth attacking the mods. They have a tough job.

People know about Fred so you're proving your point. Many of us have caught him out. Relax, continue pointing out his lies and every now and then just put his posts into Google-you'll be amazed how much is copy and pasted.

I think its for the best that any and all action is taken to ensure the best interests of Britian going forward.

We are doing away with EU institution involvement in our lives, the Blair era of love all people and being PC has ended and the people are embracing it.

It's pretty much a well known fact the invasion of Iraq wasn't for humanitarian reasons as the official line given was that Iraq had WMD's, and then when Bush and Tony et al realised that lie wouldn't float anymore they claimed it's cos Iraq was harbouring al-qaeda (oh the irony) and then when it became messy it was regime change because oh Saddam was oppressing his people oh so much we needed to liberate them, even though they were being brutalised using our weapons from the 80's onwards, even allowing it to happen because Saddam was our ally

Considering the nature of that vast country filled with rivalry it needed an iron boot to maintain order, its not that dissimilar to ancient china really, the first emperor was a tyrant, saddam was a puppy dog compared to him but ultimately his tyranny saved more lives then it cost by uniting a nation that still stands today at peace.

People need to understand that there never was and never will be a one size fits all style of governance, every nation has its own way that is right for them to maintain order, I dont think anyone would argue that irag now is better then it was in the 80s

Well I am sure Iraqis would not be happy with the assertion that they should suffer 100'000's of killings by their leader because China had a more brutal leader.

I reckon Obama can prove it was the Saudi's which orchestrated it all, with osama their right hand man. But being a wimp and a sympathizer he's holding back. 15 or so of those hijackers are directly from Saudi Arabia, if it was all created by bush which a lot of the particular religious sects try to brain wash regular people in believing on a regular basis on social media then the Saudi's would jump out of their hole and say...These 15 hijackers don't exist. Which they haven't, because they exist as Saudi nationals, or shall i say existed.

The same people that try to brain wash regular people that it was the bush administration that created this attack, are the same people that celebrated this attack weeks/months after until the dust settled and then they turned their tactics to trying to make people turn against the American government. 2 of my friends were high-fiving each other when the attacks happened, now 1 of them spends a large part of their time forwarding propaganda and other crap on social media to try to prove the Bush administration did it. Their main argument is ''Jet fuel cannot melt steal beams'', as if they have recreated a plane exploding in a small space.

Which further illustrates how flip floppity Mr Blair and his cronies spouted. Am I imagining the official justification being WMD's? Something about 45 minute's to deploy, UN inspectors, and Dr David Kelly? Have I imagined all that?

In the first 2 minutes of the video old Tony talks about Saddam's human rights violations. Remind me, what human rights attrocities were taking place in 2003? Or is he referring to the the decades prior, when he was our ally and was massacring his own people using our weapons and funds whilst we stood by and watched? Or that other time when he stopped being our "ally" and we had no more use for him and then massacred more people? You must be delusional if you think we went in to " Free The People ™ "; if that was truly the intention why not liberate the people were visible human rights attrocities are taking place i.e. N. Korea, Sudan, D.R. Congo etc. You must be truly naive to think any action they took was for altruistic reasons. The Chilcot Report is plainly available for all to see.

Fred Smith

Why not cut off the head of the dragon? It's plainly obvious Saudi Arabia is funding the very same terrorists they are funding, but we seem insistent on increasing our ties to them and even nominating them to the UN Human Rights council! Laughable! Why the double standards? If this country TRULY cared about human rights attrocities (which is the reason you've stated for justification for the Iraq war) then why BLOCK inquiries into war crimes committed by the Saudi's? Ironically within the same week we were ready to condemn Russia's heavy handed tactics in Syria and rightly so but hypocritically are reluctant to call out the KSA for the very same level of crimes they're committing. In answer to your question specifically, closing down mosques funded by Saudi's would be futile considering they're very much a part of our government and help line the pockets of our politicians.

If you truly believe foreign policy is there for reasons of altruism then surely you are very naive. The hypocrisy is obvious, but of course if you question policies then you're anti-Western and must hate this country how dare I herd derp amirite davewave?
