According to a United Nations report, over 18,000 Yemeni civilians have been killed or wounded in airstrikes since 2015 as the Saudis have ruthlessly attacked the country with sponsorship from the U.S. empire.
It has been determined by experts at the UN Human Rights Council that Yemen has been hit with 10 airstrikes per day since 2015, resulting in at least 23,000 airstrikes in the past six years. The Yemeni people have had to live in constant fear of their families being blown to bits for this entire time while enduring cholera and other hellish conditions emanating from the campaign of terror against their country.
The Yemen data project estimates that 8,773 civilians have been killed during this time period while another 9,843 have been wounded. This constitutes one of the most ghastly war crimes in history, and it couldn’t have happened without the help of Uncle Sam.
And, of course, the Biden administration is not living up to its promise to end this brutal war either.
“Despite the grim warnings and President Biden’s pledge to end support for Saudi Arabia’s “offensive” operations in Yemen, the war is still raging. Biden made his pledge in February, and it was revealed in April that the US is still servicing Saudi warplanes that are bombing Yemen. Without this assistance, the Saudi air force would be quickly grounded,” analyst Dave DeCamp of Antiwar.com said.
Liberty Conservative News reported on how Joe Biden is the consummate empire politician who was installed in the White House to make sure the military-industrial complex would continue projecting its brutal hegemony upon the world:
“A new documentary released by The Intercept highlights the record of President-imposed Joe Biden, calling him the consummate “empire politician.”
The documentary takes Biden from his early opposition to the Vietnam War, which he betrayed to later become a globalist warmonger. Researcher Jeremy Scahill noted that Biden jettisoned his morals and became a full-blown swamp creature in the 1980s.
In the 1980s, Biden supported military incursions in Grenada, Libya and Panama. The turning point into belligerent hawkishness seemed to come in 1991 when Biden said he was “proven to be wrong” in his opposition to the Gulf War. From this point on, Biden supported basically every foreign military intervention pushed by Democrats and/or Republicans.
Biden supported former president Bill Clinton’s crippling economic sanctions on Iraq in the 1990s and a bombing campaign that Scahill describes as the “longest sustained U.S. bombing campaign since Vietnam.” He also supported Clinton’s military interventions into Bosnia, his bombings in Sudan and Afghanistan, NATO’s bombing of Serbia and Montenegro, and clandestine operations in Colombia.
When the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks happened, Biden kicked his pro-militarism stance into an even higher gear. He took credit for many of the worst provisions of the Patriot Act and authorized torture at Guantanamo Bay. He also supported the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a potential coup in Venezuela, and the wholesale killing of innocents in Gaza.”
The people of Yemen are not likely to get relief until the American empire goes bankrupt. The utter folly of Afghanistan should give them some hope though that this interventionist foreign policy has seen better days.
