For years I have been calling for the US to stop aiding the Saudis in their war on Yemen…..most of my stuff went unread for the most part but now another anti-war person has stepped up and written an op-ed on the Yemen conflict….
Anti-war voices are praising a new “must-read” New York Times op-ed in which Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called on Congress “to redefine our relationship with Saudi Arabia, and to show that the Saudis do not have a blank check to continue violating human rights” by revoking U.S. support for the Saudi and UAE-led war in Yemen.
Read the op-ed!
Here is something to think about in this Yemen war thing…..
International aid group Oxfam has issued a warning on Friday that the number of civilian deaths in Yemen is soaring since August. During that time, they estimate that a civilian is killed roughly every three hours in a violent attack.
While some get caught in the cross-fire, most are victims of Saudi airstrikes, and that has Oxfam urging the world, and the US and UK in particular, to suspend arms sales to the Saudis. They say this is necessary “because of their disregard for civilian lives.”
Add your voice….help stop this obscene conflict…..help stop the involvement of the US in the killing of civilians for no other reason that to put a smile on their Saudis controllers…..
For the younger readers that need visuals…
Now you know more than you knew at the start of this post…..you are welcome.
