When the new Congress convenes Jan. 3, it is expected to pass a House resolution upholding congressional war powers and ending all direct U.S. involvement in the Saudi coalition’s war in Yemen. But hopes remain high that H. Con. Res. 138 will help to end the Yemen war itself. Congressional strategists and activists who have been working on the issue believe passage of the war powers measure will force Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman to the negotiating table.
I hope the brutal war in Yemen will end soon. The MSM should talk about it but won’t or will say very little about it. Bernie Sanders & Chris Murphy are only talking about it because there’s a Republican in the White House & not a Democrat. Saudi Arabia is doing the same thing to Yemen that the USA & UK have been doing to Iraq for decades & to Afghanistan for almost 2 decades.
