The lack of outrage in mainstream media about the continuing slaughter in Yemen has appalled me for several years now. You are resident in the USA I believe and write to a predominantly U.S. audience so it is justifiable to direct blame at the U.S. as Saudi Arabia’s main ally and facilitator.
From a British perspective I would ask people to remember that the NATO nations and the United Nations are complicit in this atrocity while Britain and France are directly involved as suppliers of armaments and expertise.
But we the punters should not beat ourselves up, it is our ruling elites that prosecute these wars. They do not ask us, they feed the news organisations with pro — war propaganda to win the support of enough weak minded people to give a veneer of legitimacy to their geopolitical piracy and the leaders know they will never be held accountable for the crimes they commissioned.
It is time we purged all of them, ‘left’ and ‘right’ (terms which no longer have any real meaning,) from our societies. Anarchy (this may come as a surprise to the Antifa thugs,) does not mean no laws, it means no rulers.
