No. Yemen feeding it's people isn't our problem. Most of the problem is warlords preventing food from getting to their enemies. Yemen is an active warzone. How do YOU propose getting food to starving people in an active warzone where both sides would likely fire on humanitarian forces.

Nope. In 1492, people were starving to death in that same region. Queen Isabella of Spain spent a fair amount to finance Christopher Columbus' trip to reach India via a western route.

He missed India for obvious reasons, but it did advance the travel industry.

Have you asked yourself why people are starving to death in Yemen? Civil war. Not my war, I didn't foment it and I am not responsible, morally or financially, for every injustice done to people on this earth. If those people in Yemen want to get out of their predicament, do what every other discontented person does--change it. Your solution to hide your head in the sand and not investigate science that might advance all of mankind does no service to anyone.

No. The money spent on Mars, vital to man's understand and long term survival does not take from people in Yemen.

Yemen isn't sending anyone to Mars.

Life is not like a pie where a bigger piece here means less for others.

People in Yemen need to take care in Yemen. Where is their government and neighbors?

Yes it is. Now senile Joe has bombed Syria, but can’t get those $2000 checks to Americans...ops, $1400 checks. Syrians and Venezuelans are also dying thanks to onerous American sanctions.

We live in insane times thanks to the crazed Oligarchy.

Why YES! Let's send lots and lots of our money to them, so they can give it to Iran. To build assembly lines of bombs. And wipe a nation of people off the face of the earth...
