BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 P.M.) – Hundreds of thousands took to the streets of Sanaa on Sunday, in a mass demonstration decrying the ongoing Saudi-led bombing campaign in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia began the campaign in March 2015 to support the ousted-President Abderabbuh Mansour Hadi and combat groups in opposition to his rule.

Earlier this year, the UN made an urgent appeal to stave off famine in the country, as over seven million people are facing the threat of starvation. Currently, over three million people, including 2.1 million children, are acutely malnourished.

Casualty figures have exceeded 10,200 people since the beginning of the conflict, with a reported 40,000 injured and more than three million people displaced.

And what about considering a little US unilateral action to unlock the blockade?
Well, if using chemical weapons is a war crime, famine against civilians, isn’t it a… crime against humanity???
I think we could even sell last version of Exocet missile to USA and even lease Rafale-M.

Why would they? US is helping the Saudis in every possible way. Without US support the Saudi efforts, including the naval blockade, would have collapsed by now.

USA claim it’s to control the narrow straight to the Red Sea and protect international trade, but the Houthis haven’t gone after that at all. However if the US invades and they get pushed into a corner they might. I’d chalk it all up to the American war based economy..
