Ron Paul: Why Are We Helping Saudi Arabia Destroy Yemen?

It’s remarkable that whenever you read an article about Yemen in the mainstream media, the central role of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the tragedy is glossed over or completely ignored.

A recent Washington Post article purporting to tell us “how things got so bad” explains to us that, “it’s a complicated story” involving “warring regional superpowers, terrorism, oil, and an impending climate catastrophe.”

No, Washington Post, it’s simpler than that.

The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country.

It started with the “Arab Spring” which had all the fingerprints of State Department meddling, and it escalated with 2015’s unprovoked Saudi attack on the country to re-install Riyadh’s preferred leader.

Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk of starvation and cholera rage.

We are told that US foreign policy should reflect American values.

So how can Washington support Saudi Arabia – a tyrannical state with one of the worst human rights record on earth – as it commits by what any measure is a genocide against the Yemeni people?

The UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs warned just last week that Yemen faces “the largest famine the world has seen for many decades with millions of victims.”

The Red Cross has just estimated that a million people are vulnerable in the cholera epidemic that rages through Yemen.

And why is there a cholera epidemic? Because the Saudi government – with US support – has blocked every port of entry to prevent critical medicine from reaching suffering Yemenis. This is not a war. It is cruel murder.

The United States is backing Saudi aggression against Yemen by cooperating in every way with the Saudi military.

Targeting, intelligence, weapons sales, and more.

The US is a partner in Saudi Arabia’s Yemen crimes.

Does holding hands with Saudi Arabia as it slaughters Yemeni children really reflect American values? Is anyone even paying attention?

The claim that we are fighting al-Qaeda in Yemen and thus our involvement is covered under the post-9/11 authorization for the use of force is without merit.

In fact, it has been reported numerous times in the mainstream media that US intervention on behalf of the Saudis in Yemen is actually a boost to al-Qaeda in the country.

Al-Qaeda is at war with the Houthis who had taken control of much of the country because the Houthis practice a form of Shi’a Islam they claim is tied to Iran.

We are fighting on the same side as al-Qaeda in Yemen.

Adding insult to injury, the US Congress can’t be bothered to even question how we got so involved in a war that has nothing to do with us.

A few conscientious Members of Congress got together recently to introduce a special motion under the 1973 War Powers Act that would have required a vote on our continued military involvement in the Yemen genocide.

The leadership of both parties joined together to destroy this attempt to at least get a vote on US aggression against Yemen.

As it turns out, the only Members to vote against this shamefully gutted resolution were the original Members who introduced it.

This is bipartisanship at its worst.

US involvement in Saudi Arabia’s crimes against Yemen is a national disgrace.

That the mainstream media fails to accurately cover this genocide is shameful.

Let us join our voices now to demand that our US Representatives end US involvement in Yemen immediately!

    Ron…Re Caption: BECAUSE THE TALMUDIST/ZIONISTS RUN AMERICA?? Did I do good, Ron? Did I pass the test?

    • Leslie Beaumont

      darkhorse I 100% agree with you. Zionist both in Israel and the US are trying to destroy Yemen and Iran. What the Saudis don,t realize Is once
      Yemen and Iran are destroyed . They will be next on the Zionist Agenda.

      • darkhorse

        right Leslie… and don’t forget — the ENTIRE PLANET is on Israhel’s HIT LIST!

        • Leslie Beaumont

          I do know that the entire planet is on Zionist Israel’s Agenda or
          Hit List .David icke covers it well in his books and speeches that he
          is doing around the world.

  • grammyprepper

    Actually, 60 Minutes just did a story on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen…it was rather sad, but opened my eyes to just how bad it is over there…

  • SP_88

    All we need to know is that the United States government is going to get rid of all the bad people in Yemen so it can be just like America and everyone will live happily ever after. The end.

    • Cynical Old Bastard

      Zactly.

  • idontknow

    I could care less if everybody in Yemen dies.

    What I *do* care about is 9/11 all the way up to the Las Vegas massacre, with Saudi fingerprints all over.

    I *do* care about the Saudis funding 20% of hillary’s campaign.

    I *do* care about the Uniparty being bought and paid for with Saudi dollars.

    I *do* care that every time somebody in Israel sings Onward Christian Soldiers, we march…

    • Leslie Beaumont

      idontknow Did you not see the news reel . Where a NY cop stopped
      4 Jewish men in a truck that had a painting of a civilian passenger plain
      heading or crashing into the Twin Towers. on the side of the trucks panel .
      These guys were Jews not Saudis or any Arab persons . Prior to this report
      they were seen by a woman looking out of her window seeing the same
      4 laughing and dancing in the street below as the Twin Towers collapsed.
      You should care about Yemen . This is a poor country and most of the people getting killed are women and children. You sound like very heartless
      person. with no empathy.

  • Billo

    Thanks for an article that states the truth. The Israelis also have their dark hand involved in Yemen. According to Veterens today, the Israelis have used nuclear bombs in both Syria and Yemen. They also seem to have thoroughly infiltrated our government and secret agencies.

    • darkhorse

      more than that…. THEY CONTROL THE USA…you just waking up to that???

    • Leslie Beaumont

      Billo They’ve also infiltrated all of Europe including the UK

  • Leslie Beaumont

    I support Trump ,but disagree with his aggressive attitude towards Yemen
    and Iran . This is obviously because of his love affair with Zionist Israel and family
    connections. I just wish he could see that when a country like Palestine or any country is taken over by a foreign country , and the indigenous people are murdered and kicked out of they’re homes . Its going to create what western cultures call
    Terrorism . Does Trump or any of the western leaders really believe a country like Palestine wants to wage war with a powerful country like Zionist Israel , that has
    as big a Military Machine as the US. These people are poor . They have nothing. So what little they do have . They are going to fight for. Even if it mean annihilation to
    themselves . The west should be supporting the Palestinians to get their country
    back not helping the Zionist take it away.

  • Leslie Beaumont

    And don,t forget the Balfour Agreement made in 1917 was written by the biggest
    G/Bangster Rothschild to Lord Balfour bribing Balfour into giving Israel to
    The Zionist and anyone that supported Zionism.. Not necessarily Jews.

  • Leslie Beaumont

    Saudi Arabia is no better than the Mafia. So why the US and the UK have dealings with them beats me. Of course Its the big money that the weapon deals bring silly me.
