The War in Yemen Is Not a War. It Is a Massacre

The War in Yemen Is Not a War. It Is a Massacre

César Chelala

The numbers are mind-blowing: Since the beginning of the conflict in Yemen, an estimated 85,000 children under five may have died from extreme hunger and disease, according to the last analysis by Save the Children, the international health and human rights organization. Although children are the most affected by the conflict, 14 million people are at risk of famine, according to data compiled by the United Nations.

“In 2015, Saudi Arabia formed a coalition of Arab states to fight the Houthis, which included Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan, and Senegal.”

These countries are being used by the Saudi Royals as mercenaries. (Just look at a map and ask what possible threat do they feel from Yemen?) The Saudis never do manual labor and should they be asked to they would turn on the royal family. No, Saudis have been pacified with oil money for a long time.
