The New York Times reports that the United Nations is pulling its staff from the besieged Yemeni port city of Al Hudaydah as a massive assault on the country's only major humanitarian lifeline appears imminent.

UN staff have played a key role in delivering foreign aid through what is now one of the besieged country's only humanitarian access points to the outside world, through which 80% of all humanitarian aid flows.

The NYT details that the UN evacuation comes after "member countries were told that an attack by forces led by the United Arab Emirates was imminent, according to two diplomats briefed on the matter."

Houthi and other allied Yemeni tribal forces have held the port city of 600,000 for the last two years after ousting the Saudi backed government in Sanaa three years ago. The Saudi-US military coalition currently besieging the country through airstrikes and sea blockade claims Al Hudaydah is a key arms smuggling point through which Iran supplies the Shia Houthis, including sophisticated ballistic missiles which have hit locations inside Saudi Arabia within the past year.

Iran has denied that it is a party to the war which has claimed many tens of thousands of casualties — both through direct fighting and through starvation and disease.

While acknowledging the US to be a major part of the coalition preparing for the attack on Al Hudaydah, the NYT has still managed to paint the US-Saudi-Emirati forces as benevolent-minded saviors bent on rescuing Yemeni civilians.

While first noting that "Yemen is already classified as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster" with "more than 75 percent of the population... dependent on food aid" and as "millions are on the brink of starvation" the NYT report absurdly emphasizes that only the Americans can stave off disaster: "Diplomats in the region say they believe that only more pressure from Washington will stop the planned assault."

Thus while the Pentagon has long been at the forefront of the war on Yemen which has caused the deaths of thousands of children, according to one leaked UN report from last summer, the NYT presents the US role as, in our words, 'reluctant humanitarian aggressors' of some sort.

The NYT report continues:

But any full-scale attack on the port would be highly contentious. American officials have warned the Emirati and Saudi governments that an offensive would result in a quagmire. The United Nations says it could cause more than a quarter of a million civilian casualties.

RE: Where is our Compassionate Liberal media? YEMEN
there was some fellow on CNBC or Bloomberg the other day telling how Kim wouldn't give up his Nukes because he'd get Gaddafi'd



he explained that after Gaddifi gave up his Nukes then they took him out. And said something similar about Hussein I believe.


I do not agree/disagree and I am just some insignificant average with limited information which I observe through various media. What he said was interesting but yet I would not be surprised if Kim does give up the Nukes and if he is a good sport and plays the game smartly then he and his country may see a different result.

i think trump is trying to make fake peace in NK so he can go after the more pertinent target which is IRAN

trump will be seen as a peacemaker in NK.. ameliorating the impression he is some war hawk

then he will target Iran. Syria is already paralyzed so after Iran is taken out, the greater Israel project will be a reality
