3 mass tragedies being ignored for Ukrainian descriptions – Indy News
The following article, ignoring 3 mass tragedies for the Ukrainian narrative, was first published in Big League Politics.
Now that “standing with Ukraine” is the unrivaled pinnacle of blue-peeled slactivism, we can seemingly ignore all the problems in the world in favor of a certain conflict. One that, even with a small amount of excavation, reveals a geopolitical chess game run by neo-Nazis, the duality of the propaganda machine, and a no-win nuclear situation.
Yet everything in life now has to be painted in sapphires and gold to reach the clear moral convictions of a particular brand. On the contrary, anyone who argues that one’s legitimate public support is being used as a weapon in NATO’s real politics is condemned by Putin as an apology.
Clearly, it is impossible to condemn all warlords (Russia, NATO, Czech and Azov Battalion) while still standing behind all those caught unjustly in the middle. Those who want nothing but life, freedom and pursuit of their own happiness.
Parallel to this are other, arguably more important and brutal, humanitarian problems facing the world. Which are uncomfortable for the influential world powers because of what they express. And it is as much about their vision of freedom, democracy and human rights as it is about their motivation (or lack thereof).
1. Return to the hard-line theocracy of Afghanistan
In September 2021, the United States accepted some hard facts about their departure from Afghanistan. 20 years later, $ 4 trillion ($ 2 trillion has been spent on war and $ 2 trillion has not yet been paid to veterans and aftercare) has been lost, and Total deaths 171,000The American people were basically told to move on with life and be concerned about Kovid.
Unfortunately, not all Afghans were able to board the military plane safely to North America. There are still about 8 million women under the age of 19 who, after nearly 20 years of extended autonomy, are now falling victim to the brutal reality of Taliban rule.
But Afghan women and girls were only considered when the war began, they were not finished.
The United Nations reports that “Taliban forces were responsible for about 40 percent of civilian deaths and injuries in the first six months of 2021, although many incidents have not been claimed. Almost half of the civilian casualties are women and children. ISKP attacks include killings and several deadly bombings.” ”
In fact, the death toll in Afghanistan alone has risen to at least 637 this year. But the indescribable plight of women and children is a real tragedy of their national reality.
Amnesty International is trying to help a woman named Jinnah, whom they have recruited from abroad to demonstrate the tyrannical rule of the Taliban. They note how he was:
“She was regularly beaten by her husband and brother before taking refuge in a shelter. When the Taliban arrived, he and several other women fled. They are now in hiding. He said: “We just came up with the clothes we were wearing. We don’t have heaters, and we go to bed hungry … My brother is my enemy, and my husband is my enemy. If he sees me and my children, He will kill us“I’m sure they’re looking for me because they know the shelter is closed.” The shelter director, who is currently hiding with some survivors from his shelter, told Amnesty International: “We don’t have the right place. We can’t go out. We’re so scared … please get us out of here. If not, you can wait to kill us.”
Lack of education, domestic violence, coercion, and widespread sexual abuse are just some of the frustrating aspects of women’s lives under Taliban rule. Not to mention the daily threat of communal violence against minorities. For example, the Hazara-Shia community in Afghanistan:
“On May 7, three explosions at the Sayyid al-Shuhada school in Kabul killed at least 85 civilians, including 42 girls and 26 women, and injured more than 200 – most of them Hazaras.”
The bombing of a school in Ukraine will be immediately recognized as a war crime. Yet for Afghanistan, it has been sidelined because Western engagement has largely ended. MIC did its cash and we left because they could not deposit or take possession.
And we put a lot of artillery in the power of the Theocrats …
2. The eternal hell of Yemen
Yemen’s ongoing hell is uniquely problematic for mainstream reporting because of the uncomfortable questions it compels. “Who is behind this aggression?”, “What is being sought?” And “What are alliances?”
The sad and frightening fact is that all of this revolves around arms for Saudi regional hegemony and the oil deal. But geopolitical mathematics / national interest stands in favor of an alliance with these Theocrats. So the United States can be their biggest trading partner and their crimes against Yemen can often be ignored.
Despite the deadliest conflict in 2021 (including at least 27,000 deaths), and the registration of nearly 5,000 deaths in 2022, media references are almost non-existent. There are no red, white and black profile pictures for this travesty. No mainstream media is pushing for justice in the face of oppression. And there is no analysis of why this is allowed to continue uninterrupted.
The reason for the deliberate negligence is to oppose the Russian aggression Progress Western interests will be messy when broaching Yemen issues. This is Saudi backyard, not NATO, so let’s intensify their violence because to oppose it would be to break a comfortable relationship. So you see the crimes against humanity are justified. Just blue and yellow waves and you forget 10,700 Yemeni children Who have been crippled or killed in the last 7 years.
And if you think Putin is a bad guy, look at the Saudi royal family’s rap sheet. Massacres, killings of journalists, suppression of women’s rights, financing of terrorism, hospital bombings and sowing the seeds of global jihadi schools are just a few of their notable activities.
Probably not as photogenic as President Hadi Zelensky.
However, Human Rights Watch noted that the armed conflict in Yemen has led to “the world’s greatest humanitarian crisis.” And according to the Yemen Data Project, “More than 17,500 civilians have been killed and injured since 2015, and a quarter of all civilians killed in airstrikes were women and children. More than 20 million people in Yemen are facing food insecurity and 10 million of them are at risk of starvation. ”
They say at least “90 illegal Saudi-led coalition airstrikes, including deadly attacks on Yemeni fishing boats that have killed dozens of people and appear to be deliberate attacks on civilians and civilian objects in violation of the laws of war.”
So since 2015, the United States (remember they are good people against evil Russia) has supported the Saudi coalition forces who “Since the start of the war, there have been 20,100 airstrikes in Yemen, an average of 12 a day“
Naturally, their targets were hospitals, school buses, markets, mosques, farms, bridges, factories and detention centers. But there is no war crime here! Just focus on Russia-man-bad and keep repeating it until you hear something else.
3. The Uyghur genocide in China
After all, we have the omnipotent strategy of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the elimination (perceived or otherwise) of their enemies. Which has led to severe persecution of the ethnic Uighur population in western Xinjiang province.
What can only be described as a fascist initiative for ethnic cleansing and Orwellian control, President Xi has imposed an open eugenic program to gradually eradicate their Muslim minority population.
In addition to detaining millions of Uyghurs in re-education camps, reducing their population centers and separating families with Han migrants from neighboring China, Xi is implementing a forced mass sexual disinfection program to prevent these people from being able to reproduce.
In fact, the term genocide is being applied because it is defined in the Genocide Convention (of which China is a signatory) as one of the five acts of intent to “completely or partially destroy.” [protected group]”
In addition to direct killings, their tasks include: “causing serious physical or mental harm, intentionally or partially imposing birth control measures on the living conditions calculated for the physical destruction of the group, or forcibly transferring the children of the group to another group.”
The Chinese communists are guilty of all these crimes yet they are free from sanctions, sanctions, or any punishment. The possibility of war is also not considered an option or discussed openly. We just look at the bad Vladimir.
The reality is that China has launched a statewide campaign against the Uyghurs on a systematic and comprehensive basis. These people have been described as “living in inhumane conditions inside the camps, suffering torture and sexual violence, and being the victims of institutional slavery throughout China.”
And since 2017, the government has “forcibly relocated Uyghur children – many of them” orphaned “, leaving both parents captive or forced to work – in a network of state-run facilities in Han Chinese settings.
The CCP is therefore subjecting these people to a “policy of sterilization and forced birth control.” [that] Destroys the group’s fertility. “And in 2018, the ill-fated results of their efforts became apparent when, in Xinjiang, their birth rate dropped by almost half – the worst such fall anywhere since the United Nations began recording these figures.”
So despite irresistible evidence of the most damaging socio-cultural mass atrocities since Rwanda, China gets a pass because of their economic invaluability (both in terms of their market power and the purchase of sovereign US debt).
Now many are wondering what will happen if China invades Taiwan. It has been on the table for some time, but will we maintain the same morality against them as Russia?
You put in the script
The bottom line is that different humanitarian crises exist at the same time. You should ask yourself: “Why This is it Expanding in contrast to others?
Look at how a very simple exercise Ukraine has been discussed Before the Russian invasion. The motto seems to be “corrupt”, “far-right”, and “critical”. But how quickly things can change for the more honest, democratic and inspiring …
Please re-evaluate your response to the situation in Ukraine and compare them to your markedly missing feelings for veiled teenage Afghan girls, besieged and starving Huthis or forcibly sterilized and re-educated Uyghurs.
I will wait for your answer when I see the stock price rise of Raytheon and Lockheed.
