As the military / industrial complex push the Trump administration to escalate US involvement in Syria and Yemen, where the Saudi-led coalition’s genocidal war on Yemen, which has so far killed at least 10,000 civilians and caused "the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis" with almost all Yemen's 22 million population lacking supplies of adequate food, water and medicines a cross party group of senators led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) introduced a bipartisan joint resolution on Wednesday that calls for the removal of American armed forces from the country.
Ironically while Senator Sanders is campaigning for peace in Yemen and disengagement from foreign conflicts, the woman who cheated him out of the Democratic Party presidential nomination, bloodthirsty bitch Hillary Clinton who campaigned against Donald Trump on a promise that she would escalate all existing conflicts and start a few new ones, is demanding that the Trump administration commit more troops and military aid to the Saudi war on Yemen.
"The bill will force the first-ever vote in the Senate to withdraw U.S. armed forces from an unauthorized war," Sanders said in his statement announcing the bill on Tuesday. He will be supported by Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) when introducing the resolution.
The U.S. has been supporting Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen, by supplying advanced weapons, supplying military advisors and training Saudi military personnel for years, and has provided the theocratic kingdom with military intelligence. In August, 2018, the U.S. government finally asdmitted that American troops had been operating alongside Saudi troops and mercenaries in Yemen for several years.
While American involvement in the Yemen crisis is a taboo subject on Capitol Hill, last November the House of Representatives approved a resolution acknowledging that U.S. military presence in Yemen in support of Saudi Arabia's war is not authorized. The vote amounted to little more than gesture politics however, as the wording fell short of a demand for a halt to American assistance to Saudi Arabia.
