Liberal-mouthpiece CNN published an article about the latest Yemeni acts of self-defense, titled “Why Houthis have added fuel to fire with missile attacks on Saudi Arabia”, claiming that further escalation of the 3-year long war of terror and aggression against Yemen is due to the “Houthis” adding “fuel to the fire” by retaliating with 7 ballistic missile attacks.
This does not come as a surprise, considering that the American mainstream media, despite political affiliation, are all following the official government doctrine considering the US support for the Saudi regime in the war against Yemen.
On the other hand, it also comes as a minor surprise considering the fact that CNN atleast tries to paint itself as the “good guy” in US mainstream media. The author of the article, Nic Robertson, is a well-known propagandist for coalition wars of aggression against multiple states in the Middle East.
In one report, Robertson blatantly accuses legitimate President Bashar al-Assad of Syria for being the “president of Syria who unleashed his war machines against his own people“, a sentence overused by US media and politicians to legitimize their efforts for regime change in the Syrian Arab Republic.
The Saudi regime is leading a coalition of mostly Arab countries under the full support of the US, UK and France along with their allies, bombing Yemen under the pretext of rolling back the gains of the Houthis (aka Ansarallah) and bringing back to power the fugitive President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi.
The Saudi-led coalition began bombing Yemen in March 26, 2015, creating a humanitarian crisis and famine conditions in Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest nation. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed or injured.
And the missile attacks against the hermit kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a legitimate act of self-defense against conventional acts of aggression.
