What do they mean “at risk”. They are already starving, malnourished, traumatised, without water, diseased. Stop the senseless wars.

Just how many Yemeni children survive?
Can’t hurt the ones we already have killed at SA’s behest.

MEANWHILE:
Trump wants to take covid-19 medical costs and leave them with the patients by eliminating insurance for millions during a pandemic.
Trying to eliminate Obamacare at this time is unconscionable.
Just not having insurance pay for testing is disgusting.

Please, once again, put this in perspective:

The US could stop this war over the course of two weeks.
We’re supporting the side that is clearly losing.
9 million people will die of malnutrition across the world this year.
That’s in the range of 10 times more than will die from C19.
And after C19 is a memory, people will continue to starve to death by the millions.

The world can solve the death-by-starvation problem easily.
Yet we won’t.

Ho-hum, large numbers of children of colour could die… so what? mutter most people in wealthy countries, those aren’t white children, they live a long way off from us. Here in the UK, who cares that our Royal Air Force is engaged in bombing children? The Labour Party is far more interested in persecuting its own left wing than in doing anything controversial.
