It has one feature that I miss terribly, that WordPress does not have.
A constantly updating Blogroll.
It automatically updates every site that I have on both sides of the main body of the Blog, provides a short blurb of the headline or what the latest post is about and I have Alternative News Sites on there for this very reason.
Because I didn’t and I just went and checked several just to make sure.
AntiMedia had it, that’s why it’s on my Blogroll.
(ANTIWAR.COM) — A 72 hour military operation in southern Najran Province of Saudi Arabia was carried out with very little coverage by Yemen’s Houthi movement. Starting on early Thursday, a major operation raged, and by early Saturday the Houthis reported a major victory.
Three entire Saudi brigades in Najran were effectively wiped out. The reports suggest between 200 and 500 Saudi soldiers were killed, and thousands more captured. Saudi arms and armored vehicles were also taken in the fighting.
Offensives against the Saudis are rare, and usually much smaller. On Sunday, the Houthis released video footage related to the operation. They described the operation as involving a number of ambushes set up around the area, and luring the brigades into a track.
The Houthis are bragging about this, and unsurprisingly so as this is a military victory they haven’t seen in quite some time. The Saudis, interestingly, have not made any comments at all about the fight.
The lack of comments from the Saudis speaks volumes, however, as they aren’t even trying to spin this at all. US officials quoted Saturday tried to present the loss as a sign of desperation by the Houthis, an attempt to push advancing Saudis away from the border.
Perhaps the most interesting fact that hasn’t been addressed is that this fight was going on since at least early Thursday, so when the Saudis announced they were joining a partial ceasefire on Friday (of which Najran was not a part), they did so in the middle of this huge battle.
Apparently ABCNBCMSNCBSCNN Et Al didn’t think this was important enough to bother informing the American public about.
This was a major ass kicking militarily in this day and age.
Kinda makes one wonder why they didn’t feel it was newsworthy.
Maybe because we have been kissing Saudi ass for decades now?
Naw, that couldn’t possibly be the reason, right?
I mean just because American has been subsidizing their defence and the fact that even the article above notes that the official U.S. policy is backing the Saudi’s against the Yemeni’s.
Maybe because the Houthis aren’t the popular political flavor of the day?
Most Americans couldn’t even find Yemen on a map with a blazing neon sign over it.
Seems to me I saw some small little blurb about Trump sending some of our Military over to the Saudi Sandbox the other day.
I’m sure that’s just a coincidence too.
You know what?
I was just thinking yesterday afternoon that if Trump is really serious about shutting the Deep State down that maybe he ought to find a legal way to go after these news corporations who promote the Deep State’s agenda and propaganda. He is constantly whining about them and calling them Fake News.
He is right too, actually.
They are supposed to report the actual news in an unbiased manner because they use the very public airwaves to disseminate their lies and biases.
Revoke the broadcast license of just one of these propaganda machines and see just how fast the rest of them wise the fuck up.
