For three and half years, the Saudi's have waged a horrendous war on Yemen. They have slaughtered tens of thousands of Yemenis -- according to the UN Human Rights Commission more than 50,000 children died by Saudi air raids with UK supplied bombs, and US supplied war planes -- through lack of sanitation and drinking water induced diseases, like cholera -- and an even worse crime, through extreme famine, the worst famine in recent history -- as per UNICEF / WHO -- imposed by force, as the Saudi's with the consent of the European allies closed down all ports of entry, including the moist important Red Sea Port of Hodeida.

"I very much hope that Congress will act, that we will finally take seriously our congressional duty, end our support for the carnage in Yemen, and send the message that human lives are worth more than profits for arms manufacturers,"

No Senator Sanders,100,000 Yemeni children must die so Americans can have jobs at Lockheed Martin and Boeing making warplanes and missiles for Saudi Arabia. The President as much as said so.
