State Sec. Mike Pompeo to visit S.-A., cut short rest of Middle East trip


Pompeo will return home after meetings in Oman instead of travelling on to Kuwait, deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said. U.S. officials said the death was in the family of his wife, who accompanied him on the trip and will return with him.

My condolences to his wife's family and the bereaved.

The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh tweeted that Pompeo and the crown prince had agreed on the need for a continued de-escalation in Yemen and adherence to agreements made last month at talks in Sweden to end a nearly four-year civil war between Yemen's Saudi-backed government and the Iranian-aligned #Houthis.

Economic warfare: Trafficking minors as soldiers


Kirkpatrick reports that some families in Sudan are so desperate for money from Riyadh, they bribe militia officers to allow their children to fight, some as young as 14 years old. While estimates vary and Saudi Arabia denied employing child soldiers, the Times reports that minors make up anywhere from 20 percent to 40 percent of the Sudanese fighters in a unit:

This has gone from desperate to awkwardly macabre. I mean, how desperate do you have to be to sell your own children to Arabic warmongers to let them fight in a war that cannot be won by any side anymore? This is strangely sinister. I have got no proper words to describe it anymore. I mean, they sell their children to a war they may not even understand, they may not even know which whom they'd side, it's a foreign war to them. They only know that there are people who need new resources to fire against their enemies.

May he rest in peace


Her husband, Ali Hassan, flew with their son to the US on October 1 seeking treatment for the boy's genetic brain condition. Abdullah was the couple's only child.
Both Abdullah and his father were US citizens.

And still, they had to experience such difficulties when they wanted to visit their son who has been kept alive in the US? Incomprehensible to me, I don't understand this situation. Sigh...

Doctors had previously told Hassan that patients like his son are usually on life support for two or three weeks, or a month at most. Abdullah had been on a ventilator at the Children's Hospital for more than a month.

Donnie clearly didn't understand the situation in the Middle East


On Monday, in his latest unexpected foreign policy statement made on Twitter, Drumpf said Riyadh would step in to support Syria following the US military withdrawal.

Now, caption this decision, and tell me again that the abrupt withdrawal of the US troops from Syria and the entire Middle East, was not a stupid idea, just as you would expect it of the orange buffoon occupying the White House (unrightfully).

"It came out of nowhere and there are more questions than answers, including how much money is he talking about. We know that the Saudis in October delivered $100m intended for Syria reconstruction but the president's tweet seemed to imply that there was more money that is going to be forthcoming," said Reynolds.
