A story getting little play in the MSM is America’s proxy war in Yemen. For those who do not know, the United States has been sponsoring a devastating war in the country of Yemen. The US has supplied logistical support, drone strikes, and weapons to ‘our side’. Most who are in the know, because the avoid the MSM, feel this is a conflict being waged at the United States’ behest to help the Saudi’s oil industry and limit Iranian influence in the Middle East.
This is a serious issue and deserves media coverage.
“America’s CIA and Britain’s MI6 are involved with the Saudis and other rogue states in waging genocidal war on Yemen – millions at risk from war, related violation, preventable diseases and starvation on an appalling scale”.1
The United Nations today announced that the war has killed 10,000 people.
“At least 10,000 people have been killed in the war in Yemen, according to the United Nations, which is urging both sides to come together to end nearly two years of conflict”.2
I have two thoughts:
- Why is the US MSM ignoring this US sponsored human catastrophe, is it for political purposes to protect the current administration from criticism?
- Why did the MSM not report on the Wikileaks data showing the back story to US involvement in Yemen?
- What will the new administration do with the situation in Yemen?
