US Admits ‘Doing the Planning’ for Saudi Strikes in Yemen

US involvement in mid-air refueling as beneficial for civilians being bombed

I bet the civilians being bombed in the poorest of the poor countries feel better knowing their destruction is being run by Uncle Sam.

The dead civilian men, women and children probably not so much.

Mattis now admits the US is “doing the planning” in Yemen strikes, and has shown the Saudis how the concept of a no-strike zone is supposed to work, and engaged in a maturing process of “battlefield management” intended to see Saudi strikes killing fewer civilians.

Mattis also tried to spin the already established US involvement in mid-air refueling as beneficial for civilians being bombed. He warned Saudi bombers would make “rash or hasty decisions” if they had to worry about running out of fuel before bombing a place, and might take less time to avoid hitting civilian targets.

Obviously all of these US efforts to avoid hitting civilian targets in Yemen aren’t working, as Saudi airstrikes are still killing a shocking number of innocent bystanders. The comments are more noteworthy than just another half-hearted attempted to spin US involvement in the war as innocuous, however…

Be seeing you
