Covering Geopolitical Issues and History, this research is centered around Oil, and how it relates to the Humanitarian Crisis that has escalated beyond any acceptable standards. The human rights of the innocent people are overlooked for continuous control and directives from outside AND inside corrupt forces, the conflicts cause destabilization, disease and death, now in the middle of 2017 the nation of Yemen is on the verge of complete collapse.

There’s a parallel sub-goal here, acknowledged in private by Western officials, but not discussed in public:   Yemen has as yet untapped potential to provide an alternative set of oil and gas trans-shipment routes for the export of Saudi oil, bypassing Iran and the Strait of Hormuz.

Yemen’s economic income, nonetheless, depends mostly on oil.
In terms of human development Yemen ranked 154 out of 186 countries, according to the 2011 Human Development Report Index issued by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).   According to government reports, poverty is a nation-wide phenomenon.

Yemen is strategically located on the Bab Al Mandeb strait and has been a central shipping hub for nearly 3,000 years connecting the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the Indian Ocean. Yemen is 527,970 square km in size, which is approximately the same size as France. The country has 2,000 km of coastline stretching along the Arabian and Red Sea.  It is bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north and Oman to the East, with Eritrea, Somalia and Djibouti only a short distance across the Red Sea.



Things are becoming a little more clear now,

“Indeed, Yemen’s war was devised long ago as a last attempt to protect interests regional players cannot afford to abandon. Everything else is mere political decorum.” Catherine Shakdam

***************The Yemen pipeline dream*****************
But there’s a parallel sub-goal here, acknowledged in private by Western officials, but not discussed in public: Yemen has as yet untapped potential to provide an alternative set of oil and gas trans-shipment routes for the export of Saudi oil, bypassing Iran and the Strait of Hormuz.
***Hiding the pipeline connection***
Western officials are keen to avoid public consciousness of the energy geopolitics behind the escalating conflict. The reality of the kingdom’s ambitions in this regard are laid bare in a secret 2008 State Department cable obtained by Wikileaks (23.(C)), from the US embassy in Yemen to the Secretary of State:
20. (C) Another interesting dynamic in the Yemeni-Saudi relationship is the large number of affluent Saudi nationals of Yemeni, more precisely Hadrami (from Hadramout Governorate), descent.  According to Saudi Ambassador Ali al-Hamdan, these families and other Yemenis in Saudi Arabia send considerable amounts of money to their extended families in Yemen.
21. (U) Hadrami Saudis include the billionaire families Bin Laden (family wealth is estimated at USD 5 billion), Bin Mahfouz (USD 4 billion) and Bouqshan Shaykh Abdullah Ahmed Bouqshan (personal worth is USD 3.2 billion).
23. (C) A British diplomat based in Yemen told PolOff that Saudi Arabia had an interest to build a pipeline, wholly owned, operated and protected by Saudi Arabia, through
Hadramaut to a port on the Gulf of Aden, thereby bypassing the Arabian Gulf/Persian Gulf and the straits of Hormuz.  Saleh has always opposed this.  The diplomat contended that Saudi Arabia, through supporting Yemeni military leadership, paying for the loyalty of shaykhs and other means, was positioning itself to ensure it would, for the right price, obtain the rights for this pipeline from Saleh’s successor.
April 26, 2016
More than 8,900 people have died in the year-long Western-backed Saudi onslaught against Yemen which is motivated by a desire to control a new oil route and acquire Yemen’s riches. Western complicity is another example of its moral bankruptcy, greed and hypocrisy.
“Yemen was thrown into the fires of war so its land and the power it hides would remain under the control of Riyadh and, by extension, the United States. Yet Yemen’s oil and gas reserves pale in comparison to that of its neighbors. The country’s true strength lies in its geography, even if foreign oil and gas companies’ interests suggest the country has more to offer than officials might have proclaimed.  With over 1,000 miles of coastline, this poorest nation of Arabia sits atop the world’s most strategic chokepoint. Should Gulf monarchies lose control over it, the Arab world as we know it would simply cease to exist. This is why Riyadh’s call for war was answered so fervently by the Gulf Cooperation Council countries and their regional and global allies.”        Catherine Shakdam
