CAPITALISM IS A CURSE: “Methods of Torture at US-Backed Prisons in Yemen: Bone Smashing, Rape, Electrocution”

The report lists the types of physical and psychological torture conducted in the prisons administered directly by Emiratis, including rape with devices or sticks or directly by other individuals, electrocution in the chest, armpits and male organs, as well as flogging with sticks, rods, cables and ropes.

The executioners also use the method of holding detainees in the air, applying hot pepper and salt on open wounds, sleep and medicines deprivation, slapping and kicking, pouring cold water on the body, and insulting as well as cursing them…

And this government has the unmitigated, hypocritical nerve to suggest other governments are “undermining its moral authority”. How can a completely immoral, genocidal government and society have anything resembling a “moral authority”?

I remember, when I was very young, seeing John Wayne movies, where “the Duke” slaughtered “the bad guys” (choose one); who were always torturing, raping, pillaging and mass-murdering the weak and poor. And I can remember, as well, thinking how lucky I was to be born in a country where these kinds of atrocities could never happen, or at the least, would never be tolerated. As far I was concerned then, only Nazis and communists were guilty of such crimes against humanity, whereas Americans stood against such atrocities.

But I was very young then, and I had been completely mind-fucked/programmed/propagandized by this pubic ‘education system’, my family, the media talking-heads, and of course, the (s)elected criminals of this government.

It has taken me a long time to gather the information I have today, the information that has shown me, over and over again, that this government has always been nothing but a baldfaced lie. I had found out that it wasn’t just Nazis and communists that were capable of such heinous crimes against humanity, but it was also the paid mercenaries/stooges of this government: the military and police (the new gestapo). And since those early years, I have come to understand that the Nazis and communists weren’t as bad as they had been made out to be, and that this government, since its inception, has always been the true root of all evil in the world. Truly, capitalism is, and will always be (if not stopped), a curse on humanity and the planet:

Methods of Torture at US-Backed Prisons in Yemen: Bone Smashing, Rape, Electrocution

ANDREW CHEETHAM

Al Jazeera received a secret report prepared by former military officials who worked with the Saudi-UAE alliance in Yemen on the conditions of prisons and secret detention centres and forced disappearances.

The information in the report matched the testimonies of prisoners and abductees given to human rights activists. Such details also reinforced what had been revealed by the Associated Press in previous investigations.

The report revealed some of the atrocities taking place in these secret UAE-controlled prisons situated in southern Yemen. The violations range from murdering detainees and abductees to torture and deprivation. Moreover, the report listed sites and names of secret graves, detainees tortured to death and missing persons, as well as identities of the torturers and the details of interrogations.

The report lists the types of physical and psychological torture conducted in the prisons administered directly by Emiratis, including rape with devices or sticks or directly by other individuals, electrocution in the chest, armpits and male organs, as well as flogging with sticks, rods, cables and ropes.

The executioners also use the method of holding detainees in the air, applying hot pepper and salt on open wounds, sleep and medicines deprivation, slapping and kicking, pouring cold water on the body, and insulting as well as cursing them.

The secret prisons are under the supervision of Aden’s security director, Ali Shayi Hadi, who is loyal to UAE. In these prisons, detainees are subjected to severe torture sessions. These include flaying their skin using rods and hammers, electric shocks, smashing bone with stones, burning body parts with melted plastic, placing the detainees in a narrow space called “Al-Dhaghata,” (the pressure space) in addition to pressing the testicles with plastic ropes, and sticking needles under the nails.’
