Are we that absorbed with our own side of the global sphere that we care two hoots for the rest of the world ? My sitemeter tells me that Canadians don't give a rat's fart for anything that goes on outside of Canada and the USA. At least not the readers of Blogging Tories. What is it with you people? Don't you understand that something is going on with the biggest financier of evil and we should be keeping a close eye on how it turns out? A blow to Saudi Arabia is a blow to terrorist financing, but it looks like money wins in the end, given the way this war is going.
Saudi jets are killing Houthi women and children on the borders of SA. Where is Sid Ryan and his Unions' hysterical card holders? Where are the boisterous Muslims of Toronto? Where is Jack Layton and his shills? Where are the Leftists and the stupid freaking gays who were screaming alongside the leftists? Why are they not marching in the streets arm in arm like they did when Israel and Gaza were at war? Toronto is full of hypocrites, filled to the brim and overflowing. Is Saudi Arabia's dirty money keeping everyone quiet? When muslims kill muslims, even if those killed happen to be women and children, it is all okay. Move on nothing to see here. It's just a case of one muslim nation against another, not a matter of one of the richest nations against a segment of people from one of the poorest. The Houthis are caught between Saudi Arabia's ultra modern weaponry and the slow strangulation from their own Sunni Govt. They are caught between a rock and a hard place and they are getting plastered.
This is a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran...make no mistake of that. That is the sole reason why even the Israeli press is largely silent on the issue. Hezbollah and Iran has been accused of supplying arms to the Houthis and this is a great way for all concerned to see each other's weaponry. Truth gets hidden because of the curse of keeping in step with political allies, even the slimy ones like SA.
Read this if you feel like it, otherwise move on to your usual Canadian / USA fare.
