The US Isn’t Just Backing the Yemen War – It’s Helping Trap Those Forced To Flee | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The US Isn’t Just Backing the Yemen War – It’s Helping Trap Those Forced To Flee

By now, the images are infamous: stunned, bloodied Yemeni children arriving at the hospital after their summer camp bus was bombed by Saudi aircraft. The United States is deeply implicated in that August 9 attack, which killed 54 people – most of them children

Fragments from the bomb bear the labels of U.S. weapons manufacturers. The indefensible nature of the bombing – there were no combatants anywhere in sight – has garnered headlines and even attention on Capitol Hill, opening a new conversation about US involvement in the years-long siege of Yemen by a coalition headed by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The coalition frames its war as an intervention on behalf of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, the man they recognize as the legitimate president of Yemen. Saudi Arabia and the UAE claim to be targeting the Houthis, the opposition group on the other side of Yemen’s civil war that controls the country’s capital, and that has alleged ties with Iran. The images from the school bus attack, however, reveal the actual targets of the coalition’s air power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am disgusted with my government, many members of which allegedly identify as Christians, but who SO love, LOVE, LOVE the concept of infants getting torn apart, killed and maimed for life with US-made weapons, and making sure that the profits of their warmonger campaign contributors are protected. And folks, this is what this war looks like on ground for Yemeni kids: (warning: graphic images)

Yemeni children, killed and maimed for life from US-enabled Saudi bombings

Images: Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition, due to US-enabled Saudi port blockades

Yemeni children sick and dying by (possibly weaponized) cholera.

And there is another article to which I would like you to pay attention, again from antiwar.com, as follows:

In Yemen and beyond, US arms manufacturers are abetting crimes against humanity

The US government has been complicit in aiding and abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen, which means that WE, as citizens of this country, are also complicit, until we collectively, and peacefully, have a dialogue with our alleged representatives in Congress, and demand that this country stop aiding and abetting these war crimes in Yemen. And if your Congressional Representative is up for re-election this year, tell them that failure on their part to do this, is an election loser for them, and you are looking forward to their progress in making this happen, before the mid-terms.

And one last article on the issue, and let your Congressional representative understand that this exists:

Bi-Partisan House Bill Aims to Stop US Military Involvement in the Yemen War.

Please tell your Representative, calmly and peacefully, that you fully expect them to support this bill.
