Was Ultimate Weapon Used In Yemen Confllict?

Samuel Cohen, the inventor of the Neutron Bomb went on to invent a Hydrogen bomb without the Uranium- 238. The Neutron Bomb would essentially increase the radiation output to as high as 80% without the massive destructive blast. The relatively small kill zone would spread into enemy troops liquefying their living tissue with the emitted massive dose of neutrons.

In 1975, The Ford Administration, under the guidance of Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger, proceeded to build the ultimate weapon of mass human destruction. Protests and an arms race soon followed. Anti Nuke President Jimmy Carter dropped the program. But President Ronald Reagan eagerly supported it.

However, support for the Neutron bomb had evolved by the time Reagan took office and military leaders were skeptical of its use on the battlefield and the potential it had to affect civilians. Plus, the bomb had only reached a small percentage of its intended neutron radiation output. The bombs were then dismantled by the Bush administration. Or were they? Back in 2012 UK Ex Defense Secretary Lord Gilbert suggested dropping a Neutron Bomb on the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Now, as President Obama gathers support for his one sided deal with Iran, the Saudis are waging a full scale campaign of genocide against the people of Yemen. Among the banned US Supplied cluster bombs used by Saudi airstrikes, there is now unconfirmed evidence of a Neutron bomb in play. Who is supplying these bombs remains to be seen, it could be the US, France, Israel, or China which has detonated at least one neutron bomb. The bottom line is, Obama’s pending deal with Iran will only increase the arms race in the volatile middle east.

Obama expected to press Saudi King on conflicts in Syria, Yemen

US President Barack Obama will host Saudi Arabia’s King Salman in their first and long-delayed White House summit Friday, with clashing views on Middle Eastern crises coming to the fore.
Salman’s inaugural visit as king — originally scheduled for May and cancelled by Riyadh — has been billed as a way of reinforcing US-Saudi relations.
But behind public statements of partnership, the meeting looks likely to be dominated by disagreements on Syria and Yemen as well as lingering doubts about the nuclear deal with Iran.

Saudi Arabia publicly voiced tepid support for the Iran deal, but privately expressed grave misgivings that the nuclear agreement may legitimize their arch-foe Iran.
Obama has now won enough votes to push the deal through Congress, easing the need for public Saudi endorsement.
But the White House would still like to assuage Saudi concerns that the deal equates to turning a blind eye to Iran’s activities.

These meetings normally end in “some kind of public statement that puts as positive a spin as possible on the meeting,” said Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

This meeting “is unlikely to be an exception,” he said. “Both nations are close strategic partners in spite of their differences, and both states need each other.”
Differences over Iran have exacerbated tensions between the United States and Saudi Arabia over the crises in Syria and Yemen.

In Syria, the White House wants to make sure both countries “have a common view” on which Syrian opposition groups get support, according to senior Obama foreign policy aide Ben Rhodes.
“We are looking to isolate more extremist elements of the opposition, that’s been an ongoing conversation with Saudi Arabia,” he said.
Both Washington and Riyadh would like to see an end to Syria’s brutal civil war and see leader Bashar al-Assad pushed from power.
But Saudi Arabia’s backing for opposition groups like Jaysh al-Islam, an amalgam of factions that include hardline Islamists, has concerned the White House.

Riyadh views Sunni fighters as a counterbalance to the Iranian-backed Shia militias helping prop up Assad.
“The Kingdom sees the conflict against the Iranian-supported Assad regime as an extension of the wider Persian-Arab rivalry” said Simon Henderson of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

That rivalry is also manifest in Yemen, where Saudi Arabia began bombing soon after Salman and his son and defense minister, Crown Prince Muhammad, came to power.
The United States has supported the effort to oust Iranian-backed rebels, but has repeatedly warned about the impact the fighting has had on civilians.
In July, Obama and Salman discussed the “urgent” need to end fighting “and the importance of ensuring that assistance can reach Yemenis on all sides of the conflict.”
A few months on, little seems to have changed.

In late August the White House expressed concern about Saudi-led air strikes on the post city of Hodeida, a “crucial lifeline used to provide medicine, food and fuel to Yemen’s population.”
“I do think we will see an expression of concern,” said Jeff Prescott, the National Security Council’s Senior Director for the Middle East.
He stressed the need for ports to reopen and for infrastructure not to be damaged.
“We have been urging all the parties involved, including the Yemen government, coalition members and others to take steps to allow for unfettered humanitarian access to all parts of Yemen,” he said.
“There is no military solution to the crisis in Yemen.”
