Children Among Civilian Dead in Latest US-Backed Saudi Coalition Airstrike in Yemen

Jake Johnson, staff writer

The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) on Wednesday reported that an airstrike carried out by the U.S.-backed Saudi-led coalition in Yemen killed 20 civilians—including women and children—who were fleeing violence in their home province.

"The people of Yemen are being subjected to deprivation, disease, and death as the world watches."
—Stephen O'Brien, United Nations

Collateral Damage…devoid of human features such as hair, skin, bodies, minds, feelings who, in the minds of the aggressors, will become terrorists as adults. War and violence are NEVER solutions to any conflict but there is not enough money in negotiating peace, using diplomacy to resolve issues, and saving lives.

The Empire Strikes Again.

Voting for Duopoly candidates is a vote in support of Collateral Damage.

Jake, I know that bringing up children is supposed to bring sympathy and support for a cause. But I care about all of the people there who died equally.
Would it be less wrong if no children had been killed? It is still murder.
