The stain of Yemen: U.S. support in Saudi war remains appalling – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 3, 2017

Quite an admission from the neo-conish Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

U.S. involvement in the Yemen war is based primarily on the fact that America sells the Saudis warplanes. Those warplanes need spare parts, munitions and U.S. technical support to keep them in the air bombing Yemen. In terms of the merits of the parties to the conflict with reference to U.S. strategic interests in the region, there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference among the Yemen parties to the conflict. America’s taking sides in the Saudi-Iran, Sunni-Shiite competition in the region is a question far separate from the Yemen war.

Power, control and money. Same old war story.

Be seeing you
