The Starving Children of Yemen | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The Starving Children of Yemen

Henrietta Fore of UNICEF reports on the appalling conditions in Yemen:

As Fore reminds us, a Yemeni child dies from preventable causes every ten minutes. That adds up to almost 50,000 dead children every year in a war that has dragged on for more than three years. These children are perishing because of starvation created by the Saudi coalition blockade and bombing campaign and from outbreaks of preventable disease that the blockade and bombing campaign have made much harder to combat. The blockade impedes delivery of essential food and medicine and makes them prohibitively expense for most people in a country whose economy has been devastated.

This humanitarian catastrophe was foreseeable and it was foreseen from the very start, but the Saudi coalition has persisted in purposefully strangling the civilian population for three years. It is an entirely man-made disaster, and the Saudi coalition and their Western backers are its chief authors. Millions more Yemeni lives are at risk, and even if things don’t get significantly worse many more thousands of Yemeni children will needlessly lose their lives because of the coalition blockade and bombing campaign. If conditions worsen because of the ongoing coalition offensive on Hodeidah, the loss of life will be in the hundreds of thousands and possibly in the millions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; the US government and military are complicit in the Saudi genocide and war crimes in Yemen.

How does it make you feel to understand that you are a citizen of a country complicit in war crimes?!?

I must tell you; it makes me physically ill to understand this. And as a Christian Pacifist Activist, as long as I have breath in my body, I will continue to peacefully witness to what is going on here.

And here are images of what is happening in Yemen, ultimately supported by your tax dollars, and committed in your name.

Images, 2018: Yemeni children dying of malnutrition

Please take a good hard look at these images; then please send this link to your Congressional Representatives, and tell them (peacefully and politely) that you can no longer support US war crimes in Yemen, or those Congressional Representatives who support this.

They understand that this is going on; but now, they need to learn that we also understand now what is going on, and are peacefully and politely asking your Congressional Representives to stop it.
