The letter, co-sponsored by 68 other member states, calls the Security Council's failure to end the war "troubling."

It says a plenary meeting of all the members would help determine whether the General Assembly should call an emergency special session under the "Uniting for Peace" resolution, which dates back to 1950 and allows for the wider membership to step in when the Security Council "fails to exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security."

Does anyone see why the situation in Syria is the focus of so much attention while the situation in Yemen is being basically ignored? The biggest difference I see is that the civilian deaths in Yemen serve the purpose of the West while the civilian deaths in Syria don't.

Who is being fooled at this point? I believe only those who are not paying attention or in denial are being fooled.

As to the article linked above, it sounds to me like cooler heads are trying to stop WW3. The problem is that the cooler heads are ultimately powerless in this instance.

I'm pretty sure when Putin gets around to nuking DC. He's going to be doing us proves here in the states a big favor. John Tutor seemed to think so and he's only running a year later on his prediction.

OK: so, you say the problem is killing?
Then that Americans buy into foreign propaganda too much?
But the solution would be more killing, but not just any killing: US style killing?
And then are you suggesting, that as long as the killings are on, might as well just nuke the Ruskies as well?
While you're at it: anyone else needs killing?

General Assembly resolutions are non-binding, unlike those adopted by the Security Council, which has five permanent members with the power to veto.


I'm not sure about you guys, but this statement above right here is why the UN Security council should be disbanded entirely... I mean even the quoted statements by the OP suggest they knew that the Security Council was going to be a problem from the beginning. To consolidate power within the hands of five permanent members,whose resolutions have more legal authority than the General Assembly is ridiculous.



Does anyone see why the situation in Syria is the focus of so much attention while the situation in Yemen is being basically ignored?


Oh that's easy... Saudi Arabia is the chair of the U.N human right's council... So that's pretty much self explanatory...
#...The U.N is going to fail like the league of nations did just before the outbreak of WWII.

In a another week or so, after you have realized that absurd propaganda won't be blindly accepted, you will go off the rails and get a ban hammer. Perhaps, in some small way, I can facilitate this coming eruption.

The US has no business throwing rocks while living in a glass house. We have no right to be funding terrorists and opposition in Syria. Obama is doing the exact same thing Bush did in Iraq. Why is it okay now? Obama hasn't even had the decency to create a lie about weapons of mass destruction.

Somebody should ask Hillary how many drone strikes, in a sovereign nation that hasn't invited us there, it will take to earn her a shiny Nobel Peace Prize like the one Obama has.

Ignored by who? The BBC, ITV, Guardian, ABC, NBC, Time, The Economist and others have all been publishing continuing coverage of the fighting in Yemen.

In all seriousness and sincerely with all due respect to you, it seems as though perhaps because you have not seen much coverage you presume it isn't there or that other people aren't paying attention to it...the coverage of Yemen is broad and continuous.

I was referring to how the situation in Yemen is being mostly ignored by the governments of the world.

US justifies Saudi 'self-defense' in Yemen, slams Russia's actions in Syria

UK blocks UN inquiry into Saudi war crimes in Yemen

As you can see from the above, when it comes to the U.S. and the U.K., they're ignoring it intentionally. That was what I was trying to convey.

But that simply is not accurate.

They are not IGNORING the problem. The US and UK governments are RELYING on the problem. You see, for the last several decades, America and Great Britain's respective governments, have been instrumental in toeing a certain line, creating certain circumstances, necessary to justify all manner of things before their respective, blinkered, and largely blindfolded and/or powerless citizenry.

To be specific, they have been involved in the following things:

1) Funding, equipping and training virtually every major terror outfit in the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond, including the organisation that carried out the 9/11 and 7/7 attacks...

2) Using those bought and paid for assets to destabilise regions that the UK and US governments would like to be active in, to give them an apparent reason to invade, or bomb these places.

3) Using those assets to drive out other international players from key resource regions (Russia being driven from Afghanistan back in the day, for example)...

4) Using the existence of these terror group assets to frighten their own nations people...

5) Using that fear to drive wedges between people of different faiths, the better to control the narrative of the day, which in turn allows control of the people themselves, preventing them from using their numbers against the powers that be, to wrest back control of their governments from those who have purchased them illegally.

6) Using all of these things combined to justify increased military spending year on year, decade on decade, which makes money for very important, very powerful non-political entities, whose only reason to exist is to gain even more money than they had last week.

So, in summary then, there is no ignorance of the on the ground situation in terms of the US and UK governments, but there is no will to stop things progressing as they have done, or to slow the pace of their progression either. You see, the more nations involved in any one set of military actions, the more money being made by arms dealers and manufacturers, the more money invested in powerful markets, the more money finding its way into private hands, filtered by blood and flesh, funneled by death, into the hands of the worlds richest people.

This is all entirely par for the course, not a runaway situation which is out of control. The Yemeni issue must be looked at through this lens of realism, absent the non-existent good will of the governments of the West, East, and all other players who deliberately stick their oar into these matters from afar. The simple fact is that there is no effective difference between the situation in Yemen, than the situation in Syria, or Libya, or Afghanistan or Iraq. The only details which differ are the particular pawns being deployed, not the Kings, Bishops or other notable pieces being bought into play, or the tactics on display. Same game, same play, different team colours is all.

You 're coming up with readable diatribe regularly , but failed to mention here Russia or Iran . Do you think it's wrong to assume that actually , the us and russia , are actually beginning to fall out ? Or that , if apparent cold relations are staged , then those 'worlds richest' will really make some dough if they force these 2 nations to set to for 10 yrs ?

Add some reality , they might own the world after that , the creditors , from the unendable debt . Maybe the world does not work quite the way you see :
maybe the Russia is being picked on for a scapegoat and no one is scared of Russia anyway , they simply can't afford a big war.
Or maybe the forseen in the 90s migrant crisis means keeping that corner of syria a complete no-go zone , for as long as possible : thats the way the birds fly round from africa to europe and back , the only way out for a lot of people.

The border is shut /etc . Its tempting to sit back and regard as the elite do , but what about the chaos

The answer to the chaos is the same as it has ever been. You start by removing the teeth of the powers that purchase the chaos. The funding for it evaporates, and after a time, so does the problem. Unfortunately, the only way to totally prevent things like this, is to not purchase proxy armies in the first place, and either make war, or not, in the traditional fashion.

Believe it or not, accept it or not, this problem begins and ends with governments doing things against the will and in direct opposition to the moral and ethical direction of their people, using their money to do them. Preventing this from ever being repeated, would require root and branch deconstruction of the manner in which western nations are owned and operated, a root and branch deconstruction that starts at the government level, and goes UP from there, to touch the stateless, loyalty free people who own the politicians and the banking cartels that actually pull the strings.
