Yemen doctors despair as babies starve in 'orphaned province'

At Nasr Hospital's emergency room in the Yemeni city of Daleh, a little boy struggles to breathe. He is too tired, or too hungry, to cry.

Born with a degenerative neurological disease, his muscles have atrophied to nothing, his tiny joints visible through his pale skin, his stomach distended.

The child's body cannot retain even water, so nurses have resorted to putting him in diapers.

And doctors say there is nothing they can do.

The boy is one of an estimated five million Yemeni children who may not see their next birthday in a war the UN children's fund has described as a "living hell" for minors.

The UN has warned that international aid agencies are losing the fight against famine in Yemen, where 3.5 million people may soon be added to the eight million Yemenis already facing starvation -- more than half of them children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The collective punishment of a people, through assassinations, the introduction of possibly weaponized diseases, destruction of water infrastructure or malnutrition, because Yemen's ports are blockaded, are all war crimes, which the Saudis, backed by their country's Leader, one of President Trump's BFF in the Middle East, the Butcher of Yemen (sometimes also known as Prince Bin Salman).

Americans, please wake up, and quickly; your country is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

It is time to peacefully, logically call out this government for what it is; the leading global merchant of death, one of whose main spokespersons, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, lied through his teeth to Congress about the ultimate usage of US missiles by the Saudi military, to save the sales deal.Mike Pompeo lied to Congress about Yemen, to protect arms sales

I don't know how upset you are about living in a country which supports war crimes, around the world, with utter impunity... because it can; as a Christian Pacifist Activist, who never advocates violence, I am deeply concerned about the moral price of these actions over time, because there will be a reckoning, brought about by the US government's imperial hubris which characterises these war crimes as "necessary for the greater good."

The "greater good"?!? For whom, please?!? It is not for the good of We the People; it is for the profits of Those the Monied, and the banks and corporations which, essentially, in America, bankroll presidential campaigns, and drive both foreign and domestic policy.
