As the war in Yemen rages on, there are voices which are not only unheard, but apparently, ignored. In the United States media, every idiotic phrase which Donald Trump utters, and/or tweets, is heralded from all of the mainstream media. But where is the coverage as to the unnecessary deaths and hunger being suffered by Yemeni children? The silence speaks volumes.
The war in Yemen, led by Saudi Arabia, and assisted by the U.S., rages on. Is the silence as to the children because of the fact that Saudi Arabia is a so-called U.S. ally? Or is it because the U.S. is complicit? Are U.S. citizens actually citizens of the U.S., or must we ‘bow down’ to Saudi Arabia, even when they are wrong?
The lack of outrage,empathy, and compassion is disheartening. Saudi Arabia is bombing Yemen without any concern as to not only the lives of civilians, but children as well. Our leaders in Washington D.C. should be ashamed, and the man sitting in the oval office should be ashamed as well, however, due to his high degree of purported narcissism , it is expected that there is no shame within him.
Yes, there is a government shutdown, but these children were being murdered and maimed before the shutdown even began. And yes, the stock market is down, then it’s up, yet not one single word about the children of Yemen. Not even from our European allies. It is as if it is not even happening.
But there is something that can be done. Each person can write,call,email,text their representative in Washington,D.C. to let them know that Americans care. And, since they are our representatives, our voices, it is up to us to let them know that we not only care, but that we want it to stop. We are funding these child murders via providing Saudi Arabia with military equipment to conduct these bombings, and that should provide some leverage to exercise our authority. Donald Trump won’t do it, as he is too enamored with Saudi Arabia to take the necessary steps, and, according to some reports, too beholden to them for their financial assistance to him personally, in the past. But it is Congress that holds those purse strings, and it is Congress that can speak out against this and not only be heard, but taken seriously as well.
These are children! Little children and babies whose lives are being taken away or ruined. The deafening silence should not, must not, and cannot continue. Write your elected representatives and media outlets. #UnheardCriesInYemen #StopKillingYemeniChildren
