#ISpeakforButhaina: Picture of girl in Yemen goes viral

Buthaina Mansour was the sole survivor of a bombing in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, that killed her entire family. An image of her trying to open her eyes despite her injuries has gone viral on social media as a symbol of solidarity with the people in the war-torn country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations to his Royal Highness, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, for whom the world can now add yet another honorific to his name: that of the Butcher of Yemen.

An image of one more innocent toddler, maimed for life, and bereft of any family whatsoever; one has to wonder as to the horrific extent of this man's bloodlust, in light of the fact that his Saudi military are killing innocent babies and toddlers; women; and the medically fragile elderly in Yemen, in addition to the Houthi Rebels.

Because the Yemeni ports are closed, so no food can get it, Yemeni children are starving, and dying from complications of malnutrition; and now, is experiencing one of the worst epidemics of cholera the world has seen.

You have allowed your troops in Yemen to use both depleted uranium weapons, causing massive spikes in birth defects, stillbirths, and cancers here, as well as white phosphorous, which burns to the bone, and for which there is utterly no remedy.

And President Trump, you, sir, have enabled this genocide as the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America has authorized billions of dollars in arms sales to this country;

US approves a $1.4 billion sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia

And by doing so, you have distinguished yourself as the Merchant-of-Death-In-Chief of your country: congratulations to you also, Mr. President!!

What we have in Yemen, with US government enabling, is the massive, full-blown, in-your-face commission of Saudi war crimes, with utter impunity, and zero morality, Mr. President: there is no other way to say this.

And every single respected expert on the Middle East consistently say that the resolution of the hostilities in Yemen must, ultimately, political, rather than military.

History will not judge either of you you kindly on this, Prince Salmon, and President Trump.

Prince Salman, you will be remembered as Saudi Arabia's War Crimes Prince"

And President Trump, you will not be remembered as a "War President", but as a "War Crimes President" for these atrocities, visited upon the people of Yemen.

Please understand: I am a Christian pacifist activist, who constantly exhorts her government to resolve its geopolitical differences through hard-won, moral negotiations rather than through war, and cannot, ethically, ever endorse violence.

But when my government refuses to listen to logic, I have a responsibility to witness, peacefully, to the horrors it is inflicting around the world, and shall do so until I draw my last breath.
