UFOs Are Bombing in Yemen
Unidentified Flying Objects have been striking Houthi targets in Yemen in recent days — not little green men, but U.S. military aircraft operating from bases that are apparently extraterrestrial because the Biden administration hasn’t wanted to name our local allies, and the news media has been too lazy or captive to inquire.
Those planes are originating from countries — Jordan, Qatar, the UAE, possibly even Oman and Saudi Arabia — that otherwise decry Israel’s war and oppose the strikes on the Houthis. For decades now, official secrecy has been employed to protect our two-faced allies from their own people. Even when aircraft originate from aircraft carriers, they have to seek permission to overfly the same countries. So we allow them to lie and deceive their own publics and the news media goes along with the charade.
Consider, for example, The New York Times’ vague characterization of the airstrikes: “Britain joined the United States in the attack against the Houthi targets as fighter jets from bases in the region and off the aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower struck targets with precision-guided bombs” (emphasis mine).
“The strikes were from fighter jets and Tomahawk missiles,” CNN said in its initial reporting, writing that “more than a dozen Houthi targets were fired on by missiles fired from air, surface, and sub platforms,” not naming any bases for U.S. aircraft. Reuters followed suit, ignoring where the planes originate from.
The U.S. military operates from a secret web of air bases all over the Middle East, as well as from Greece, Turkey, and Cyprus. It is well known that al Udeid air base in Qatar is the hub of U.S. operations, and al Dhafra in the UAE is often cited as hosting U.S. A-10 fighters, but even when aircraft attack Syria and Iraq targets in the ISIS war, the originating bases in Jordan and Iraq are obscured. And special operations airplanes, such as AC-130 gunships, seem to operate from nowhere, mentioned but never located.
By withholding the names of the host nations, the Biden administration obscures from the public the growing reality that Israel’s war in Gaza is metastasizing into a regional war, putting the U.S. in conflict with Iran — which the administration has been adamant it is working to prevent.
When it comes to whatever it is that the U.S. military is doing — attacking from nowhere — the Biden administration has adopted a bold strategy: denial. It maintains that the U.S. itself is not a part of the expanding regional war.
“We currently assess that the fight between Israel and Hamas continues to remain contained in Gaza,” Pentagon press secretary Maj. Gen. Pat Ryder said in a press briefing on Wednesday.
Though Washington is in denial, clearly the air and missile strikes on the Houthis undermine that assertion. All of this has led to my new favorite War Is Peace style Pentagon spin.
“We don’t think we are at war” with the Houthis, Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Sabrina Singh said in a Thursday press briefing, talking about the strikes.
There you have it: unidentified flying objects carrying out a non-existent war.
