The airstrikes have been relentless since March, a period now of eight months. They are supposed to be targeting a local rebel group, but appear largely indiscriminate, regularly hitting civilian targets. Thousands of people have been killed.

Salman is a friend of Obama is this the reason that there is no rebuke for the brutal genocide of the Yeminis U.N. silence is deafening also.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Cal.
So, it's all about the oil, the money and the power. My understanding is that the Saudis are of the Wahhabi sect, which beheads and tortures people. They are part of "radical" Islam. And, the U.S. aligns itself with them for the above reasons I stated. We are creating more terrorists with these acts of violence against innocents.

Thank you for posting this, Cal, because so little publicity is given to this massacre. Because America's involvement in Yemen, there's little hope this will ever change for the better. The UN is silent on it too, not that a UN statement would make much difference.

"Human rights groups say some of these strikes amount to war crimes."

The Saudi's have always gotten a pass from our country. They, to our faces, are nice while teaching hatred and bigotry in their schools and mosques. That special arrangement goes all the way back to Prescott Bush. Yemen is as bad a place for women as Saudi Arabia though I don't doubt the rebels will be much the same if they prevail. But this IS criminal as is our bombing all over Syria and Iraq. We'd declare war in an instant were we attacked in the way we do around the world. I was in my late teens when Nixon and Kissinger were busy propping up right wing dictatorships and it turned me uber liberal then and now. I wonder if any country anywhere is responsible for more bloodshed in all of history than this "free" nation we live in and love.

Obama has been told this from the beginning, but he brags about all the airstrikes, to make us think he's doing something, but we know he's not.Airstrikes are not the answer!
