|Civilian homes in Sa'da, Yemen - Amnesty International|
Some 400,000 people have been killed in the US proxy war against Yemen, more than half of them civilians, according to Brown University's Watson Institute. There's an article in Salon that provides a rundown of the barbarity being committed against Yemen's civilian population by the US and Saudi Arabia. Doctors Without Borders clinics, hospitals and food warehouses are being intentionally bombed. At least half the population is starving, perhaps as much as 80 percent. Saudi Arabia does most of the actual killing but under US direction and with US arms, including deadly, inhumane cluster bombs made in Tennessee.
The US currently has at least five ongoing wars in the Middle East -- Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya -- several more interventions ongoing in Africa, the Ukraine situation started and funded by the US continues and the US has destabilized Asia with Obama's "Pivot to Asia" and ongoing aggression against China and North Korea.
None of the presidential candidates would significantly alter our imperial, warmongering course; the fulfillment of the Neocon designed plan hatched by old cold warriors upon the dissolution of the Soviet Union to make up for our declining material prosperity by using our bloated military in a reckless and savage attempt to rule the world, and making we the people pay for it with ever declining living standards.
