The PBS News Hour has covered the inhumane effects of this conflict very well this year. As one of the 1,000 people who watch it almost ever night, I wrote to Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters asking them to object to the US support that allows the Saudi’s actions to cause the atrocities in Yemen.
If Sander’s resolution makes it to the floor, the debate will be interesting. Will any senator try to justify the consequences of the US support: destruction, disease, starvation, and death? We, the people, will see who votes for it and against it.
We have allowed this support to go on. This conflict affects hardly anyone in the US. So what? Well, it’s shameful. All of this military power and this is what it brings. Not peace, but the suffering and death of children. If I believed in Hell, we’d all be going.
So get ready, but don’t hold your breath waiting for the US to end its support for the Saudi regime.
The children of Yemen are a living and dying example of “a pawn in their game”.
