Last August, nearly 500 people lost their lives in just nine days in Yemen. Many of those people were civilians—decent folk who had absolutely nothing to with the conflict in the region. Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) responded:
“The Saudis deliberately bombed a bus full of children. There is only one moral answer, and that is to end our support for their intervention in Yemen.”
“The news about Brett Kavanaugh and Rod Rosenstein is addictive, but spare just a moment for crimes against humanity that the United States is supporting in far-off Yemen.
“President Trump didn’t mention it at the United Nations, but America is helping to kill, maim and starve Yemeni children. At least eight million Yemenis are at risk of starvation from an approaching famine caused not by crop failures but by our actions and those of our allies. The United Nations has called it the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, and we own it.
“An American bomb made by Lockheed Martin struck a Yemen school bus last month, killing 51 people. Earlier, American bombs killed 155 mourners at a funeral and 97 people at a market.
“Starving Yemeni children are reduced to eating a sour paste made of leaves. Even those who survive will often be stunted for the rest of their lives, physically and mentally.”
Salon magazine has even declared that Yemen has already descended “into hell.” We read:
“It’s the war from hell, the savage one that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, along with seven other Middle Eastern and North African states, have been waging in Yemen since March 2015, with fulsome support from the Pentagon and American weapons galore. It’s got everything. Dead children in the dozens, a never-ending air campaign that pays scant heed to civilians, famine, cholera, you name it.”
Zionist outlets like the Atlantic risibly declared that America failed the civilian population in Yemen, but the same magazine doesn’t tell its readers that the war in Yemen is congruent with what the United States has been doing in the region as well. The Saudis have been killing civilians in the useless war for a long time, and no one has said a damn thing about this.
What is literally pathetic is that the Zionist whores and prostitutes in the White House have the temerity to tell us all that they care about civilians and Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. They obviously think that everyone is stupid.
