American journalist: Trump is helping Saudi Arabia starve the Yemenis
He said “The United States is complicit in a war that he has described as” ambiguous “by Saudi Arabia in ways that have brought disgrace to the two friendly countries,”referring to the fact that the war on Yemen is not only involving Washington militarily but also from its public budget.
He pointed out that “The role played by Washington in the war on Yemen was not done with the approval of the American people or their congressional representatives, but under powers that were exploited by a president acting like a hawk, lacking ethics and political experience, and a proprietor of companies that profited from personal transactions with Saudi Arabia.”
The US Senate last Friday voted on a draft resolution that decided to ended US involvement in the war on Yemen and withdrew all US troops within 30 days.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 60,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
