    Yemen is a nightmare, a catastrophe, a mess—and the United States is highly complicit in the whole disaster. Refueling Saudi aircraft in-flight, providing targeting intelligence to the kingdom and selling the requisite bombs that have been dropped for years now on Yemeni civilians places the 100,000-plus deaths, millions of refugees, and (still) starving children squarely on the American conscience. If, that is, Washington can still claim to have a conscience.

    And although he's not at fault for previous foreign policy screw-ups the buck stops with President Trump now, at least in Yemen.( he didn't put us there, but he is obviously siding with Saudi Arabia, maybe for personal gain and/or he's being used by the neocons around him).

    As if Israel is not tighter than two coats of paint with the Sauds.

    There's nothing to suggest - it's a fact. We gave Saddam weapons and aerial satellite locations of Iran's troops. Iran's military outnumbered Iraq's 10 to 1, but the troops were sitting ducks.
    He never used the advanced anthrax weapons we sold him ,. ( the wmds they "never found")
