The international community has betrayed Yemenis over and over again.
good luck. tragically, your tormentors are the Sauds, a favored tyranny of our own tyrants. the odds of anyone in Washington taking the side of decency in this event are near zero.
nevertheless, we must try. but in the meantime, you’re likely on your own, horrible as that is.
I first joined the Antiwar movement when I was 17 years old, as a freshman in college in 1969.
We all had a stake in making good at that because of the draft.
Today’s politicians got smarter and made the militaries cut of the budget the biggest piece of the pie, so now they don’t need the draft and can afford to hire a mercenary army they call “contractors” and also release little to no information about.
The youth of this nation must be the one’s to pick up the Antiwar movement now and run with it. Their entire lives are before them and unless they want to live their entire lives supporting Death and Human Suffering brought to you by our Morally and Ethically Challenged Elites and our Murderous Military, now is the time to Stop America’s Wars.
Us seniors will gladly join you.
Please, don’t wait.
There’s a madman in the White House.
Only americans, please define an American?
US is but one National Bordered State of three America’s, and it has so bastardized their original Constitutional Ideals they have so many hyphenated-americans each group that clamor for special recognition in order to place themselves above and beyond each other the only thing they are concerned within satisfying crotch and money.
It seems that majority of US inhabitants, of which around 25-35% have only lived in borders for under 25 years, and increasingly those immigrants legal or otherwise come there not for Freedom but to make the same bucks as the other inhabitants are grubbing for.
Stopping a war that they feel no personal discomfort from, and majority think gov is their savior, good luck there.
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A SUCCESSFULL ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT IN US, AND TRUE AND FACTUAL History BEHIND THE SCENES OF VIET ERA, those democratic party liars take credit foris pure BS.
As many educated education reformers have noted, most college graduates are dumber than when they first enrolled.
Thwit historical perspectives have been shaped after 12 years of indoctrination of plain out lying memes, myths of "WELL IF NOT TRUE, THAT IS THE WAY ITSHOULD OF BEEN…"
The 28%ers who are paid within that economic strata have far wandered from reality of real life in US? While hiding behind the hubris of being a BENIGN Labeling of themselves as being Americans.
Unfortunately the US will not likely ever do anything decent for Yemen. On 12 October, 2000, al Qaeda claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on the destroyer USS Cole where it was refueling in the Yemeni port of Aden, following a similar attempt in January that had failed. The blast killed 17 sailors on the deck above immediately and injured 30 others.
The US collected from the Saudis, but the US government bears a grudge longer than some of the Balkan states. (Remember Bosnia, 1999-2001, where they were fighting over events that had happened in the Middle Ages and before?) Note that this attack occurred almost exactly 11 months before the WTC attacks, and after several others earlier in the decade including a much smaller one on the WTC, all on Clinton’s watch.
