Only Americans Can Stop America’s War on Yemen

Yemen continues to suffer in silence as the world turns away from its ongoing misery. Despite two and a half years of brutal war, the average American remains oblivious to the inconvenient truth that the United States has been helping Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates destroy a sovereign country that posed a threat to no one. While rich Arab states bombard the Middle East’s poorest country, creating the world’s largest humanitarian crisis and an unprecedented cholera outbreak, our government (starting with the Obama administration and continuing with Trump’s) has continued to support them not only through the sale of weapons, but also through mid-air refueling, targeting intelligence, and other logistical support.

The international community has betrayed Yemenis over and over again – examples include the United Nation’s capitulation to Saudi pressure by removing it from the list of child killers and allowing the Saudi-led Coalition to investigate (and clear) itself from any wrongdoing. Even as an inquiry into Yemen war crimes was finally agreed upon this week, the word “investigation” was dropped, and it remains to be seen which “regional experts” will comprise the committee.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning; the images below are very graphic.

But I think it is damned well time that the American people had a serious conversation about what is going on, with their tax dollars, and in their name, in Yemen.

Saudi forces have been killing and maiming Yemeni children with impunity, courtesy of their bombing runs on civilian neighborhoods.

Because Yemeni ports have been shut down, through a US-military enabled Saudi blockade, food can no longer get into Yemen, causing massive cases of malnutrition, and the deaths of more children:

And to add insult to injury, Yemini children are dying from the most massive epidemic of cholera (perhaps weaponized?!?) ever seen in the 21st century:

The Saudis also have used depleted uranium weapons, causing massive spikes in birth defects, still births, and cancers in Yemen:

Any governmental leadership, or traditional royalty which:

1. Assassinates children
2. Causes starvation leading to malnutrition deaths
3. Poisons children in the womb through exposure to DU

is one hell of a piece of work.

I feel compelled to tell you, President Trump; I am profoundly unhappy to be a citizen of a country which is collaborating in Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

As a Christian pacifist activist, I will witness to these, and similar war crimes in which the US government is complicit around the world, as long as have breath in me.

Finally, Prince Salman, I do not know quite how many honorifics come attached to your royal status in the House of Saud; but I do know one title which will follow you to your grave, and cause you to be forever loathed and reviled by the Saudi people: the Butcher of Yemen.
