In spite of everything, in spite of illegality, in spite of dirty hands, our government appears to support Saudi atrocity in Yemen for no discernible reason, other than possibly giving the Saudis a reason to buy our weapons and a place on which to dump them. How can we force our government to stop this?
We need to sprint away from Yemen. Don't walk, saunter, stroll, jog, or trot.
We should be running at top speed to get out of there like our pants and hair are on fire.
Last week Trump's White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer accused Iran of attacking a U.S. naval vessel. There were just two problem's with that statement: 1) no U.S. naval vessel was attacked, and 2) no Iranian vessel did any attacking.

Remember Blackwater? Things haven't gone well for them since they were committing war crimes in Iraq.
Blackwater became Xe Services in 2009, and then Academi in 2011, obviously trying to leave their tarnished name behind.

Remember al-Qaeda? With all the hype about ISIS it's easy to forget that it was al-Qaeda that attacked us, while Daesh never did.
If you've forgotten that, you wouldn't be alone. It seems that Washington has forgotten it as well, because over the last six months we've been at war with the enemies of al-Qaeda.
It is with less than surprise that a nation living by 7th Century criminal laws also uses 7th Century military tactics.
In this particular case, Saudi Arabia is trying to win the war against Yemeni rebels by creating a famine.
