US-Backed Airstrikes on Yemen Kill Civilians – and Hopes for Peace

Baraa Shiban

You can’t bomb a country into existence, however much America seems determined to try.

In the last week, 164 Yemeni civilians have lost their lives in the Saudi bombardment of my country. In media reports – full of geopolitical talk of “proxy wars” and “regional interests” – the names of the dead are absent. As always, it is ordinary Yemeni families who are left grieving, and forgotten.

Baraa, please tell the World like you do.

The MSM is pretty derelict in its reporting as well: when a milk processing factory is obliterated, it is pretty clearly not from "anti-aircraft fire" as claimed by the Saudis, and something pretty easily established on a physical basis, but they are too lazy to go further.
