The US-backed Saudi Arabia war on Yemen is causing the worst humanitarian crisis of the modern era. The lack of concern from politicians should belie this justification for U.S. intervention in other countries.
The U.S.-backed Saudi Coalition's assault on Yemen is the real humanitarian crisis. In fact, it's the world's worst humanitarian crisis of the modern era. The war has already taken the lives of 80,000 Yemenis, not including the 85,000 children under the age of 5 who have starved to death as collateral damage of Saudis bombs.
Despite how dire the crisis in Yemen is, its not even noteworthy to U.S. politicians crying crocodile tears for the people of Venezuela. In fact, these same politicians screaming how socialism is starving Venezuelans have been totally OK with the U.S. selling Saudi Arabia weapons so it can bomb the hell out of the Middle Easts poorest country....
So why is the U.S. contributing to such an inhumane situation in Yemen?
The Houthi rebels overthrew the Saudi-backed former puppet president of Yemen, Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, who escaped to Saudi Arabia. Not pleased with the toppling of its puppet regime, Saudi Arabia formed a coalition with other Arab states and - with the backing of their key allies, the U.S., UK, and France - launched an all-out assault on the Houthis. Which turned into a bombing spree against the entire people of Yemen, its food supply, schools and hospitals.
