    Bill Clinton starved thousands of Muslim children to death in Iraq, and Barack Obama attempts to do the same in Yemen. War criminals’ war crimes.


    Graphic - Obama starves Yemen children to death



    Yemen Emergency

    https://www.wfp.org/emergencies/yemen/

    In Yemen, millions of people are on the brink of famine. The lack of immediate and unhindered access to people who urgently need food assistance – compounded by a shortage of funding – means that famine is a possibility for millions of people, mostly women and children who are already hungry in this war-torn country.

    Almost 14.4 million people in Yemen are food insecure. This includes more than seven million people in desperate need of food assistance; that is one in five of the country’s population. Yemen has one of the highest rates of child malnutrition in the world and now an estimated 1 in 5 people are “severely food insecure” and in urgent need of food assistance.

    The nutrition situation continues to deteriorate. According to WFP market analysis, prices of food items spiked in September as a result of the escalation of the conflict. The national average price of wheat flour last month was 55 percent higher compared to the pre-crisis period.​


    A conflict that only is possible because Obama facilitates and arms it:


    U.S. and U.K. Continue to Actively Participate in Saudi War Crimes, Targeting of Yemeni Civilians

    https://theintercept.com/2016/10/10...udi-war-crimes-targeting-of-yemeni-civilians/

    The Obama administration “has offered to sell $115 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia over its eight years in office, more than any previous U.S. administration,” as The Guardian reported this week, and also provides extensive surveillance technology. As The Intercept documented in April, “In his first five years as president, Obama sold $30 billion more in weapons than President Bush did during his entire eight years as commander in chief.”

    It has been known from the start that the Saudi bombing campaign has been indiscriminate and reckless, and yet Obama and the U.K. government continued to play central roles. A U.N. report obtained in January by The Guardian “uncovered ‘widespread and systematic’ attacks on civilian targets in violation of international humanitarian law”; the report found that “the coalition had conducted airstrikes targeting civilians and civilian objects, in violation of international humanitarian law, including camps for internally displaced persons and refugees; civilian gatherings, including weddings; civilian vehicles, including buses; civilian residential areas; medical facilities; schools; mosques; markets, factories and food storage warehouses; and other essential civilian infrastructure.”

    But what was not known, until an excellent Reuters report by Warren Strobel and Jonathan Landay this morning, is that Obama was explicitly warned not only that the Saudis were committing war crimes, but that the U.S. itself could be legally regarded as complicit in them.

    In other words, the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner was explicitly advised that he might be a collaborator in war crimes by arming a campaign that deliberately targets civilians, and continued to provide record-breaking amounts of arms to aid their prosecution.


    America Should Quit Saudi Arabia's War In Yemen: The Senseless Killing Must Stop

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/dougban...war-in-yemen-the-senseless-killing-must-stop/

    Without a vote of Congress the Obama administration has joined the Saudi-led coalition in war. Now the rebels may be firing back. The destroyer USS Mason apparently came under missile attack from Yemen—though U.S. officials admit the ship’s radar might have malfunctioned. This presumably is retaliation for U.S. complicity in the murder of Yemeni civilians. No longer can the Obama administration pretend that fighting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s war has no consequences. Washington has turned the U.S. into a foreign target, yet again.

    Still, the administration played the victim card, claiming that it destroyed Houthi radar stations in “self-defense.” However, the U.S. had provided targeting intelligence, refueled airplanes, trained pilots, and supplied munitions to Riyadh since the latter, backed by several other Gulf states, attacked Yemen in March 2015. The Pentagon even deployed ships to prevent Iranian vessels from approaching Yemen’s coast. [Note: Naval blockade exacerbating the starvation and famine]

    By taking an active role in the Yemeni civil war Washington made Americans as responsible as Saudis for the carnage in the world’s poorest nations. Perhaps 4,000 civilians have been killed in the fighting, the majority by the KSA-led “coalition.” These deaths also are America’s responsibility.


    Barack Obama, the war criminal par excellence, already has starved more Muslim children to death than thousands of Trumps. The real enemy of Muslims are the Barack Obamas and Hillary Clintons of the world.


    Heart-wrenching photos document severe malnutrition in Yemen as bloody civil war rages on

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/wor...document-malnutrition-yemen-article-1.2846833

    More than 14 million people are on the brinks of starvation in Yemen, and experts fear that an entire generation “could be crippled by hunger” as the war-torn country’s bloody civil war continues to claim lives.

    Yemen famine feared as starving children fight for lives in hospital

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2...starving-children-fight-for-lives-in-hospital

    The UN’s humanitarian aid chief, Stephen O’Brien, described a visit to meet “very small children affected by malnutrition” in the Red Sea city of Hodeida. “It is of course absolutely devastating when you see such terrible malnutrition,” he said on Tuesday, warning of “very severe needs”.

    More than half of Yemen’s 28 million people are already short of food, the UN has said, and children are particularly badly hit, with hundreds of thousands at risk of starvation.

    There are 370,000 children enduring severe malnutrition that weakens their immune system, according to Unicef, and 1.5 million are going hungry. Food shortages are a long-term problem, but they have got worse in recent months. Half of children under five are stunted because of chronic malnutrition.


    Voting for KKKillary Clinton, will only continue and exacerbate these atrocities: You’re complicit. #MAGA

    In that part of the World it is not uncommon for them to lose at least one child. Sanctions, mostly only affect the common person. War is horrible, we should do every thing we can do to NOT go to War(policing actions are war under a different name.) That said this is a Middle Eastern problem, one that the US should stay out of. The US and it's populace(and most of the West) currently don't have the stomach to engage in the type of warfare that would put a stop to these kind of things.

    Obama has helped to implement and coordinate blockading of supplies, and has directly facilitated and armed the destruction of mass civilian infrastructure, including bombing hospitals, water treatment, food storage, etc. This definitely is the fault of Obama and his 9/11 Saudi friends who, not only have they conspired to destroy Yemen, they also have conspired to destroy Syria, in part, through arming al-Qaeda and other jihadists there.

    Yup. Funny how no one talks about the violence we've inflicted on Iraq through economic sanctions either, hundreds of thousands dead from the Clinton years because Chlorine exports to Iraq were banned under the guise of preventing chemical weapons. The problem? Good luck getting clean water for cities without it.

    The USA has a long track record of taking economic actions (or outright bombing civilian support infrastructure) that will inevitably kill civilians. The aim being to cause conditions to deteriorate so badly that the civilian population rises up to overthrow the government.

    Hmmm, targeting civilians to force a political outcome....how is that not textbook terrorism?

    I have been anti-Obama for the past several years—since prior to the start of the conflict. I have smashed Obama endlessly, fighting Obama and his illegal wars of aggression and war crimes. I did not vote for Obama, neither do I support Killary (who will continue and expand this conflict). I am not complicit in the slightest.

    Its not surprising we stay involved when you look at how vital the Suez Canal is to global commerce. It's one of the worlds primary shipping lanes. Money over everything.

    Read that Forbes piece, here is a part relevant to your reply:


    P. 2

    The administration cites promoting stability as the justification for U.S. policy. For instance, Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed that Riyadh was “sending a strong message to the Houthis and their allies that they cannot overrun Yemen by force.” But Washington previously never much cared about who was battling whom for control of Yemen. Indeed, who rules matters little to anyone outside the country. Neither Ansar Allah nor Saleh could (or would) challenge Saudi predominance or block Gulf shipping.

    Yet Secretary Kerry declared that the U.S. was “not going to stand by while the region is destabilized or while people engage in overt warfare across lines, international boundaries and other countries.” He has a career in stand-up comedy when he retires from State. Apparently he forgot America’s invasion of Iraq, which simultaneously violated international law and created regional chaos. U.S. intervention in Libya had much the same effect.​


    The war has nothing to do with the Gulf and/or Suez shipping.

    Kindly, that is b.s. But anything to deflect from the fact that Mr. Nobel Peace Prize is presently starving thousands of Muslim children to death in his illegal war of aggression Yemen war crimes, similar to how Clinton starved thousands of Muslim children to death in Iraq. And Hillary is the most qualified to continue starving Muslim children to death.
    --- Post Merged, Oct 27, 2016 ---
    Possibly. With Hillary it guaranteed is to continue and become worse.

    By definition, complicity would be the wrong word. I'll grant you that. But it's hypocritical for you to criticize so harshly as you do and yet not do anything yourself to help. Or NOT criticize your own government.

    Key part of my quote.

    "That said this is a Middle Eastern problem, one that the US should stay out of."

    Why would you leave Bush off your list? :p

    And you might as well add Trump too, he's also making money from those Gulf States that "fund ISIS".....and when it comes to killing children, as you should recall from your TRUMP20016!!!! days, he's said he'll kill children when he ramps up the war against ISIS

    That is definitely a real problem with Trump: Other than the odd instance, he is unable to permit himself to be bested or to admit or acknowledge fault or loss.

    It could be. But we already know what Hillary’s foreign policy history is: treason, arming of terrorists, war crimes, pay-to-play bribery and corruption, millions of lives destroyed through multiple nations’ destructions, and the worst refugee crises. If elected, Hillary’s foreign policy will ‘build’ on this.
