The Growing Threat of War and the Critical State of the Global Financial System

Standard

Three developments are shaping the current world situation: an increase in social tensions, the intensification of international political conflicts and the increasingly undisguised preparation of the Western alliance for war against Iran.

The mainstream media try to miss no opportunity to tell the international public who will be friend and who will be foe in this coming war. Time and again, Iran’s allies Russia and China are depicted in the most negative light possible, while there is almost no mention of Israel’s and Saudi Arabia’s crimes in Yemen and against the Palestinians.

At the same time, the media are doing everything they can to conceal the most important reason behind the drive for the war – the critical state of the global financial system. Journalists are bending over backwards to convince the public that the global economy has completely recovered from the 2007/2008 crisis, that we are witnessing a global economic boom and that the dangers in the system are under control.

In fact, none of these claims are true. The simple reason is that they all ignore the historic importance of the cross-border manipulation by the central banks, which was necessary to save the system from collapse after it nearly broke down in 2007/2008, and which still keeps it alive today.

The global financial system would no longer exist without manipulation

This manipulation has set in motion a development that can be compared to the fate of a patient who survives a severe crisis only through an injection of addictive drugs and who would be killed by a subsequent withdrawal treatment because of his poor state of health. In other words, without money injections and low interest rates and without the purchase of government and corporate bonds by central banks, the global financial system, as we know it, would no longer exist.

The world’s leading central bankers are well aware of this. This is shown by their futile attempts to turn the wheel. Even the most timid announcements to contain the flood of money and significantly increase interest rates send such shock waves through the financial community that it is already clear: there can be no return to a normality in which no excess money is printed, interest rates are raised to a level that was once considered normal and no more bonds or shares are bought by the central banks.

So what will happen next? Will central banks simply continue the policy of the past ten years? After all, nobody can stop them from printing unlimited amounts of money and lowering interest rates – along the lines of the Swiss Central Bank – into negative territory…

In fact, nobody can stop them, but the consequences these measures would bring with them are foreseeable: A further increase in speculation, even greater volatility in the markets, an even stronger inflation of the bubbles, which are almost bursting already, the complete destruction of the classic banking business (lending against interest rates), the disintegration of traditional commercial banks and savings banks, the complete takeover of markets by investment banks and hedge funds, the collapse of pension systems – to name but a few of the expected consequences.

The biggest danger is the loss of confidence in the monetary system

Worse than any of these consequences is the creeping loss of confidence in the entire monetary system, which has not been tied to any real value since the decoupling of the US dollar from gold in 1971. It can be assumed that at some point it will affect the entire system, lead to a panic in the markets and cause the global financial card house to collapse.

How close we have already come to this point was shown by the dramatic price fluctuations of the US stock index Dow Jones in February of this year. It appears that this was a test run in which the US Federal Reserve, which is permanently on standby to prevent major price crashes, only intervened at the last second. These fluctuations were the strongest that the Dow Jones has experienced in its more than 100-year history.

This may have been a serious warning to the world’s financial elite. In any case, both the Skripal affair in Great Britain, the trade war instigated by the US against China and the recent hostile reaction towards Russia by most EU states are strong indications that the elites have decided to seriously consider an option that the German economist Ernst Winkler in 1952 described as “the best means put off the final catastrophe of the entire capitalist system over and over again” – the option of waging a war.


China Can Succeed With Petro-Yuan Where Gaddafi Failed

Standard

Muammar Gaddafi wanted to shatter the dominance of the greenback in the Middle East by introducing gold-backed dinar, but failed. China has a chance to finish what she started, one industry expert has told RT.

“Ideas related to oil trade in currencies other than the dollar arose more than once. Some of them were severely suppressed by the United States, one example is Muammar Gaddafi, who proposed the introduction of a regional currency gold dinar and trading oil in the Middle East in this currency,” Aleksandr Egorov, foreign exchange strategist at TeleTrade said.

However, this time, an attempt to oust the dollar could be successful. China has launched oil futures backed by yuan, and Beijing has what Gaddafi didn’t, according to the expert.

“Along with the Chinese role in the global economy and the growing interest in the renminbi, China is also protected by a nuclear shield. It can afford to try to shatter the monopoly in oil trade. This will give even more weight to the Chinese yuan. In addition, China’s economy is the world’s largest consumer of oil, and consequently, all world producers of raw materials will have to reckon with the strategy of the Chinese authorities,” Egorov said.

According to the analyst, the timing for the launch of the petro-yuan is perfect. Key oil producers Russia, Iran and Venezuela are under pressure from US sanctions, and it is a good moment for them to ditch the dollar in oil trade and substitute it with the yuan.

Mikhail Mashchenko, an analyst at social network for investors eToro, agrees.

“From the point of view of Russia’s geopolitics, it is certainly beneficial to reduce the role of the dollar in foreign trade. And it has been done, let’s recall the record growth of the country’s gold reserves. The other states that are constantly under the threat of new sanctions, like Iran and Venezuela, can profit, too. The contracts in RMB will allow to trade oil without US approval.”

Both analysts agree that it will take time before the petro-yuan can become a real threat to the dollar. China needs to win the support of the world’s largest oil producers Russia and Saudi Arabia, or the initiative is doomed, says Mashchenko. He added that the yuan is fully controlled by Beijing, which could also spook potential investors.

Why petro-yuan may become biggest game-changer of all time in capital markets

The historic launch of the long-awaited trading of Chinese crude futures this week has stirred up a heated debate among analysts as to whether the new commodity product will prosper or flop.

Some market analysts expressed doubts over the success of the petro-yuan, citing Beijing’s yearning for total control over trading as one of the key reasons for a potential bust. “The government has been eager to encourage liquidity and paper trading, but of course the issue with paper trading is speculative trading that the government wants to keep at bay,” Michal Meidan, an analyst at energy market consultancy Energy Aspects, told Bloomberg prior to the launch.

Meanwhile, the high costs of oil storage for delivery into the Shanghai Futures Exchange may scare potential investors away from the new contracts, according to industry analysts. “Storage plays a crucial role in linking cash and futures markets. Many speculators, such as proprietary traders and hedge funds, may be scared away,” said Jian Yang, a research director at the JP Morgan Center for Commodities in the University of Colorado Denver, as quoted by the agency.

However, China’s yuan-backed oil futures managed to make a strong debut on Monday with overnight trade volumes initially outstripping transactions of internationally recognized benchmark Brent. Some 62,500 contracts reportedly changed hands during the first session, as domestic and international oil investors joined the trading.

The impressive start gives deeper cause for optimism about the newcomer with some analysts qualifying oil futures denominated in China’s currency as a game-changer in the world of financial trading.

“This is the single biggest change in capital markets, maybe of all time,”

… said Hayden Briscoe, APAC head of fixed income at UBS Asset Management, as quoted by Reuters.

According to the analyst, the move to trade oil in yuan will diminish the role of the greenback in global financial markets. If market participants, including US corporations, opt to trade yuan-backed contracts, this could easily strengthen the Chinese currency and, at the same time, weaken the dollar.

“This helps cement the exchange’s viability and challenges the petro-dollar system, in which oil deals are executed in dollars. This would decrease demand for the greenback and boost US inflation,” Briscoe said.

With crude oil becoming a great chunk of modern international commerce, the potential impact of the new product on oil market dynamics and on global monetary and financial systems could be correspondingly great.

The Chinese government has been offering a win-win cooperation with the West. Now, it is tired of dealing with the constantly shifting positions of the British Empire. The critics, of course, will never ran out of issues including China being part of the Old Paradigm. But how can we exactly transition to a resource-based society if not by first laying down the groundwork which should make the current system irrelevant?

If we transition to the resource-based economy overnight, do we still have people working in the farm lands and power plants tomorrow? Or, do we need to establish the autonomous systems first which will make these tedious jobs obsolete?

Don’t we need to build the nuclear power plants first, so we can make available the free energy that the households and automated systems need to power on with?

Or, do we prefer the one-time dole out of the so-called prosperity programs like NESARA, which even Trump is not heard to even mention about?

Social designs like the Venus Project needs a peaceful transition from our existing hierarchical setup, and it is in fact the unavoidable consequence when the RIC Alliance has fully implemented its relevant technologies, e.g. transmutation of elements, hybrid nuclear fusion-fission power, and plasma technologies, without the constant interference of the West.

We judge best when we try to condemn just for the sake of condemning that which we don’t fully understand. It is absolutely wrong to analyze the actions of the leaderships in the East with the same mindset prevalent in the Western culture.

The East talk a lot less than their Western counterparts, but they do the necessary work diligently.

The desire for total dominance is never acceptable for the Orientals, and that is very visible in the attitude of the Chinese engineers facilitating the transfer of construction technology to the Africans, as shared in the last article.

Negative appreciation about what China is presently doing can only come from false pride.


From Covert Geopolitics.

The Difference Between Zionism and Judaism

Standard

Many people conflate all Jews into a single category — but like any religion, culture or identity; there are subdivisions that must be acknowledged.

One common misconception that has infiltrated people’s minds through Western media is that Zionism is Judaism. The Western media does not highlight major differences that exist between Zionism and Judaism — both ideologically and theologically.

Judaism splintered and took two main paths, those who studied and obeyed core scripture, and those who began to write their own books, traditions, rules, laws, statutes and so on.

For example, the Babylonian ‘Jewish’ Talmud is an example of a false collection of texts that has negatively redefined Judaism.

The core canon is widely accepted, whereas the Talmud and its many derivatives are widely criticized for:

  1. Anti-Christian, anti-Gentile content.
  2. Absurd or sexually immoral content.
  3. Falsification of scripture.

Those who abandoned core scripture began practicing a very warped version of Judaism, forming closed-off communities that became wary of, and opposed to gentiles. This is also how ethno-religious Jewish groups such as Ashkenazi came to form.

As a result, a non-biblical “us versus them” attitude quickly formed in the rabbinical echo chambers — this is the kind of rabbinical Zionist Judaism we see today at the top of power hierarchies worldwide.

To differentiate between the groups within the broad term ‘Jew’; truly spiritual Jews are against Israel, but the Talmudic variant, and within that variant, the Talmudic Jewish racial and cultural supremacists are very pro-Israel — despite nowhere in scripture it stating that Israel is to be founded again by men in a physical sense.

In my opinion, a small denomination of so-called ‘Jews’ have totally misinterpreted the scriptures and somehow justified a supreme ‘Jewish race’ and a physical, rather than spiritual, homeland — they are a cultural and ethnic minority that abides by misunderstood rabbinical Talmudic principles and traditions which scripture does not authorize whatsoever — they have totally hijacked what being a biblical Jew actually means. Some of them have risen to the heights of Western power and are steering everything towards a Jewish Mystic, Pharisaical, Masonic World Order.

A concerted effort to bring the kingdom of heaven unto earth in a physical sense.

“For hundreds of years through all misfortunes a Messianic dream of an ideal city,
where there will be neither rich nor poor, and where perfect justice and equality will
reign, has never ceased to haunt the imagination of the Jews. In their ghettos filled
with the dust of ancient dreams, the uncultured Jews of Galicia persist in watching on
moonlight nights in the depths of the sky for some sign precursor of the coming of the
Messiah. Trotsky, Bela Kun and the others took up, in their turn, this fabulous dream.
But, tired of seeking in heaven this kingdom of God which never comes, they have
caused it to descend upon earth.” — J. and J. Tharaud

The “Synagogue of Satan”.

The Bible quite rightly anticipated that the scriptures would be misinterpreted, taken out of context, reworded, and so on.

It is an inevitability that many false iterations of Biblical faith have, and will continue to spring forth and try to represent the scriptures in the word and interpretation of men, rather than in the word of God.

The following verse warned of this:

“Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie — I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you.” — Revelation 3:9

In the Bible, they are called the “Pharisees”, those who ‘added to and took away’ from the word of God and made it their own:

“You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.” — Deuteronomy 4:2

Zionist Jews practice their faith ‘outwardly’, not ‘inwardly’; as the Bible explicitly states they must.

The Bible advocates ‘inwards’ faith, rather than an ‘outwards’ carnal interpretation of it.

The Pharisees were Jews of the ‘written’, outwards variant of Judaism.

They practiced their faith outwardly in a literal, material sense, in contradiction to the spiritual, immaterial faith as spoken of in the scriptures.

“No, a man is a Jew because he is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise does not come from men, but from God.” — Romans 2:29

Understanding the mindset behind global “Jewish supremacy”.

Jewish supremacy is a very small Pharisee offshoot of the core Jewish faith — but ideal circumstances allowed it to gain massive influence, and eventually redefine what most people see to be ‘Judaism’.

A “Pharisee” is defined as:

“a member of an ancient Jewish sect, distinguished by strict observance of the traditional and written law, and commonly held to have pretensions to superior sanctity.”

The keyword from the above definition is “sect”, which is defined as:

“a group of people with somewhat different religious beliefs (typically regarded as heretical) from those of a larger group to which they belong.”

Because of their eugenicist selectivity, their scholarly societal standards, and their extreme studiousness — the Pharisaical Ashkenazi’s genetic and intellectual qualities increased dramatically, and many of them, as a result, rose to the high positions in society as we see them in today — some of them retain the cultural and supremacist rigors of their ancestors and maintain a distrust of the ‘gentile’, many of them looking to the Global Zionist objective as their ultimate goal.

Central to the Pharisaical Jew is that the gentile is a heathen to be avoided, misinterpreting the following passage as a call to segregation:

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness?” — 2 Corinthians 6:14

In the past, being a money-lender was a profession forbidden for Christians to uptake, the field was largely a power vacuum; as most of European society was Christian a few hundred years ago.

By denying Jews the stability of property ownership, Christians unwittingly forced Jews of the day into great financial expertise. This expertise has carried itself over to the present day.

“Today’s races and classes will disappear owing to the disappearing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its outward appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. The main representatives of the brain aristocracy: of capitalism, journalism and the literate are Jews. The superiority of their spirit predestines them to become a main factor of the future nobility.”

— Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, spiritual father of the EU, Freemason of the Humanitas Lodge, Vienna.

This gave Ashkenazi Zionist Jews the head-start, so to speak, in gaining the knowledge and expertise in saturating the financial field and quickly gaining economic dominance.

“We too are in agreement with the cultural anti-Semites, insofar as we believe that Germans of the Mosaic faith are an undesirable, demoralizing phenomenon.”

Physicist and Anthropologist, Gregory Cochran, states that the selective breeding culture of Ashkenazis over one thousand years would be enough to see the significant difference in IQ points seen today — which is on average 15 points higher than European average IQ.

Cochran states that the Ashkenazi population was incredibly unique — nearly every Ashkenazi worked a ‘white collar’ job; book work, money-lending, accounting, etc.

From this innate advantage and because of the high rate of Jews in financial roles, the early major Jewish banking families formed out of these circumstances, powerful families that persist to this day.

Not to say regular Europeans weren’t capable of becoming money-lenders — they were simply culturally forbidden from doing so — the Ashkenazi Zionist sects saturated the profession and quickly worked together to make it a ‘Jew-only’ business, gentiles were kept at arms length.

Certain Pharisaical Zionist Jews, often Ashkenazis, have risen and acquired significant power and influence:

  • Banking System. The entire Federal Reserve System has been setup by Jewish Families which is continuously puts the country into debt. It works above the law and it is not accountable to the government for its activities.
  • Large Corporations. Most large corporations are owned by Jews in America. All of them have moved their manufacturing to Communist China, a country that they have developed at the expense of American and European jobs. The system that they have setup drains the country’s wealth from most countries around the world into the hands of a few Jewish Entities.
  • System Beneficiaries. All of these systems that are setup mainly in the West benefit Jewish Entities at other’s expense. It is essentially fooling and cheating millions of people from several cities around the world.
  • Politics. Jewish Entities have setup very powerful lobbies in America like AIPAC and systematically control the majority of the American politicians. These politicians end up doing exactly what they are advised to do, irrespective of the fact whether it benefits the American people or not.
  • Media. 90% of media entities in America and most large media corporations are owned by Jews. They run the media as per their strategy, directing and misleading several countries with their false agendas which benefit on them. Media has been used by them to mold the psychology and direct public opinion as per their plan. This is large scale misleading of the people from true facts and ground level reality.
  • Wars. Most of the recent wars since the past 15 years have been promoted and wanted by the Israeli government and Jewish Entities. These wars have done nothing but immensely increase the country’s debt and only stalled the measures that needed to be taken to fix the economy. People also dislike the large scale promotion of hate and division promoted by these entities to justify these wars while keeping them in the dark about what needs to be done for the economy.
  • Economic Collapse. Eventually with increasing debt and new wars at hand, possibly with Iran, the economy of these countries will collapse resulting in the shutdown of several government operations. This will lead to a lot of disturbance in the country and a lack of law and order.
  • Internal Chaos. Latino and Black militants will be funded and supported by these Jewish Entities to create internal chaos within the United States. This funded and armed conflict will be blamed on Russia and its allies. The exact same system that has been implemented in Syria, of the funding of armed militants by outside elements. The exact same pattern will be used in USA. The only difference will be that they will use the Black and Latino communities to do the same. And once this conflict begins, it will have ripple effects in several cities across America with colored communities, leading to a mass internal chaos.

Supremacist Jewry.

Pharisee comes from the Hebrew root word, meaning “separate” or “detach“, this is used in a literal, segregationist sense — as opposed to the spiritual sense advocated in scripture.

Some groups of Ashkenazi Pharisees lived in closed-off communities. They taught a warped version of Judaism — teaching that all non-Jews were cattle, that Israel must be founded in a literal sense, and that they must dominate the gentile; as this was ‘God’s intent’.

How did Ashkenazi Pharisaical Zionism come to be so powerful? The genetic and cultural components.

Ashkenazi Jews are a product of a breakaway Pharisee Jewish sect, elements of which organised themselves towards a Zionist agenda.

As aforementioned, in the case of the Ashkenazi Jewish sects; their power and influence came from their rigorous convictions and their genetics that came from circumstantial and cultural ethnogenesis.

As a small population, they bred very selectively, tending to favour the most scholarly to reproduce — as well as interbreeding and acquiring the beneficial genetics of Europeans.

On the other hand, other Pharisee populations interbred with dysgenic populations and likely didn’t hold the same standards of cultural eugenics as the Ashkenazi variant, this explains why European Pharisees were more successful in spreading and implementing Zionism than other Pharisee populations; because Ashkenazis were more than capable of doing so.

The Ashkenazi genetic composition changed over many hundreds of years to the modern, highly intelligent Zionist Jews you see today — the ethnic Ashkenazi Jew.

The Ashkenazi Jews that dominate the American Jewish community have the highest average intelligence of any human group and they have shown an extraordinary ability to create and participate in highly effective groups in pursuit of their interests.

Why are Jews represented as they are? A combination of genetic and cultural components.

The Ashkenazi Jewish ethnicity is represented as the 1% because it possesses the most advantageous genetics.

The rise of the Ashkenazi Jew was the perfect marriage between good genetics and a supremacist culture combined into one regional ethnic group that experienced very few dysgenic effects and remained largely culturally homogeneous, as a result — the Ashkenazi Jew, with both incredible genetic ability coupled with a ideological drive to expand ‘Jewish’ influence and subvert the ‘gentiles’ — a few Ashkenazi Jewish sects quickly came to dominate the world.

The Zionist Ashkenazi ‘Jew’ is not a Semitic Jew, nor a spiritual Jew.

The Zionist Pharisaical plan for world domination.

Some, although not all Ashkenazi Jewish Pharisaical sects believe they must take over the world in a literal sense, similar to some radical forms of Islam, as this would be ‘pleasing’ to their idea of God. Totally misinterpreting the spiritual rather than physical kingdom of God on earth:

“And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one.” — Zechariah 14:9

And while in the Bible it does say that Jews are a ‘chosen’ and ‘set apart’ people (in a spiritual sense, not a literal sense) — at no point does the Bible sanction supremacy, an exclusive ethnic and cultural identity, an exclusive homeland, persecution of the ‘goyim’, or any such segregationist, supremacist ideology.

A real Jew is made by spiritual conception and conviction, not by any inherent conception or birthright.

Why many Jews were persecuted throughout history.

Now that we’ve made the distinction between canonical, spiritual Jews and ethnic Zionist Jews we can understand why certain Jews were persecuted throughout history, and why this persecution overlapped to regular Jews as a result of a misunderstood conflation of false Jews and true Jews.

The rabbinical, supremacist, and anti-gentile attitudes seen throughout certain Ashkenazi Jewish communities meant they actively used their influence, knowledge and great intellectual capacity to undermine goyim nations.

They opted for methods such as usury and the formation of conspiratorial secret societies and economic alliances to gain financial dominance — as a result, the European natives interpreted these transgressions as representative of all Jews as criminal money-changers and swindlers, not the Zionist few; this explains the indiscriminate historic persecution and expulsion of all Jewish communities.

Other Jews were in financial positions by necessity and gained positions in the nobility and the inner circles of aristocracy because of their financial dealings. Many associated the Jew with the wrongdoings of the state many Jews were forced to serve as financiers. This contributed further to the negative image of Jews as bankers.

As a result of such indiscriminate expulsions, the Europeans “threw the baby out with the bathwater”, so to speak.

Innocent Jews were expelled along with criminal ones, and a generally poor reputation for the entire Jewish faith spread far and wide across Europe.

Meanwhile, the real culprits, the supremacist Zionist sects, were not specifically identified — the ‘Jew’, in all cases and all circumstances, was thereafter seen as the enemy and menace, this unfounded reputation largely persists to this day:

“Moreover, we do not know to this day which devil has brought them (Jews) here…like a plague, pestilence, pure misfortune in our country.” — Martin Luther, About the Jews and Their Lies, 1543

Largest Military Aid in Israel’s History: $705 Million for Missile “Defence” Programmes

Standard

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that (the Zionist lobby) and US Congress had approved the largest defense aid contribution for Israel since it was created in 1948, Quds Press reported yesterday.

On Twitter, he wrote:

“I am pleased to announce that the US Congress has approved a record amount for missile defence. $705 million in 2018. We will continue to develop the multi-tier missile defence system.”

American media reported that Congress approved the $705.8 million for missile defence programmes, noting that this is $105 million more than last year’s funding.

Lieberman went on to thank the US which he described as a “great friend” of Israel, noting that it invested $6.5bn to defend the skies of Israel.

In 2016, the US approved a $38 billion ten-year aid package for Israel, the highest ever agreed. According to the Christian Science Monitor, Israel cost the US $1.6 trillion between 1973 and 2002.


Saudi Crown Prince: Spread of Wahhabism Was Done at Request of West During Cold War

Standard
The Saudi-funded spread of Wahhabism began as a result of Western countries asking Riyadh to help counter the Soviet Union during the Cold War, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told the Washington Post.

Speaking to the paper, bin Salman said that Saudi Arabia’s Western allies urged the country to invest in mosques and madrassas overseas during the Cold War, in an effort to prevent encroachment in Muslim countries by the Soviet Union.

He added that successive Saudi governments had lost track of that effort, saying “we have to get it all back.” Bin Salman also said that funding now comes mostly from Saudi-based “foundations,” rather than from the government.

The crown prince’s 75-minute interview with the Washington Post took place on March 22, the final day of his US tour. Another topic of discussion included a previous claim by US media that bin Salman had said that he had White House senior adviser Jared Kushner “in his pocket.”

Bin Salman denied reports that when he and Kushner – who is also Donald Trump’s son-in-law – met in Riyadh in October, he had sought or received a greenlight from Kushner for the massive crackdown on alleged corruption which led to widespread arrests in the kingdom shortly afterwards. According to bin Salman, the arrests were a domestic issue and had been in the works for years.

He said it would be “really insane” for him to trade classified information with Kushner, or to try to use him to advance Saudi interests within the Trump administration. He stated that their relationship was within a normal governmental context, but did acknowledge that he and Kushner “work together as friends, more than partners.” He stated that he also had good relationships with Vice President Mike Pence and others within the White House.

The crown prince also spoke about the war in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition continues to launch a bombing campaign against Houthi rebels in an attempt to reinstate ousted Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi as president. The conflict has killed thousands, displaced many more, driven the country to the brink of famine, and led to a major cholera outbreak.

Although the coalition has been accused of a large number of civilian deaths and disregard for civilian lives – an accusation which Riyadh denies – the crown prince said his country has not passed up “any opportunity” to improve the humanitarian situation in the country. “There are not good options and bad options. The options are between bad and worse,” he said.

The interview with the crown prince was initially held off the record. However, the Saudi embassy later agreed to led the Washington Post publish specific portions of the meeting.
