Humanist Action Forum
The number of civilians of Yemen killed by bombs, cholera and famine will soon reach a million. The slaughter is all the more gruesome for being deliberate. Saudi Arabia has unleashed a war of extermination on a faction in Yemen’s civil war, and the intelligence, munitions and the in-air bomber refueling aircraft carry the stamp of the United States. In other words, we are at war in Yemen on the side of Saudi Arabia, a state known for its extreme misogyny and its coziness with jihadist terrorism. Why Saudi Arabia is our ally is obviously its good and abundant oil, and the monopoly it has given our currency in the oil market. But why Yemen? Qui bono? This week the HAF will take a crash course on Yemen and the holocaust that we are so nonchalantly provisioning, and we will research that question.
