While the collective Media has been losing their minds on Trump’s sexual assault, the government has used this opportunity to start a war in Yemen. Of course, mainstream media goes fast and lose with the truth. Here are some quick and hard facts!
Yesterday it was reported that the U.S. has started “responding to provocations” by Yemeni rebels.
Let’s establish a few things first:
1. The Obama Administration has been bombing Yemen for years, without provocation and despite the lack of any Congressional authorization.
2. The Obama Administration has lied about bombing Yemen for years, including having the Yemeni government claim responsibility for U.S. attacks.
3. Obama’s deceit even extended to having a Yemeni journalist, Abdulelah Haider Shaye, falsely imprisoned for years on terrorism charges after Shaye uncovered evidence that Obama, and not the Yemeni government, was responsible for the al-Majalah bombing that killed dozens of women and children.
4. The Obama Administration continues to supply weapons, including white phosphorous, to the Saudi tyranny, which turns around and uses them to commit war crimes against the Yemeni people, including the apparent use of U.S.-made bombs in the atrocity at the funeral hall in Sana’a last week.
The point: the U.S. is not “responding” to “provocations.” The U.S. government (the one you elected and support with your tax dollars) has been blowing up Yemeni civilians over nothing for the better part of a decade now, and has continued subsidizing Saudi war crimes with billions in taxpayer handouts.
I defy anyone to explain to me how the targets of these attacks in Yemen would not be justified in responding to Obama’s provocations with violence.
