i agree with those who are calling for withdrawal from Yemen. bring our
Yemen was already in the Stone Age before Jared Kushner and MBS decided to bomb
it back to the Pleistocene era. Maybe we should not be starving children to
deepen our pockets.
"The U.S. military is not involved in active combat operations in Yemen. The
only role they play is intelligence and targeting with the goal of reducing
civilian casualties. I think that’s a goal worth supporting," Stewart
said.We have heard this lie before and I, for one, refuse to believe
This is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. It is due largely to Saudi
bombing. We are supporting such bombing with ordnance, refueling, and
targeting. We are thereby accomplices to an ongoing slaughter of innocents.And for what? Just to throw more of our weight around in that part of
the world? I say, enough is enough! Stop this madness!
It's pretty common for me to agree with Ben McAdams, but now I actally
agree with two Mike Lee votes in the same yeat and it's only April!
Trump has escalated our involvement in Yemen because of his and Jared Kushners
loyalty to the dispicabable murderer of Saudi Arabia. It’s always about
money for those two.
Representatives do not represent Utah, but their specific disteicts. All people
have one and only one rep. So you can either agree or disagree with the rep in
your district, but that is no grounds for speaking as if your state delegation
has abandoned you, since state delegations are myths.
Considering at least a majority of civlians are women, and Yemen's low
population age means a large portion are children, if only aquartetr of civlian
casualities from bombing are women and children this indicates restraint to keep
the percentage of these two groups injured down. This is not to say the
situatiom is good, but that the numbers are a sign something is being
constructively done to keep the levels of these two groups effected low.
If the goal is truly “reducing civilian casualties” as Stewart says,
then we should leave on that basis alone. The Saudis don’t care and are
not accountable for civilian casualties, so we are not helping. Take the military money and provide humanitarian aid instead of creating
another generation of terrorists with a valid complaint against the US.
I agree with trump 99% of the time but not on this. We have no business in
yemen. Let them work out their own problems and we should never put US troops in
harm's way unless it is for a strong ally like England or Canada. Possibly
even france? What interest do we have in yemen? None that's worth fighting
We need to stay out of other countries civil wars. As the U.S., we had to work
out our Civil War. It tore our country apart, and approximately 620,000 soldiers
died from combat, accident, starvation, and disease during the war. Friends and
families were pitted against each other and their relationships torn to pieces.
We had to learn at a terrible cost we needed to be one country and be united. We
have a different version of civil war going on today between Dems and
Republicans at the expense of our country, citizens, and national security. Other countries didn't invade our country to pick sides in our
civil war. They didn't supply most of the arms to add to the bloody fight
or to give one side advantage over the other. And yet, the U.S. does this over
and over again in other people's civil wars. We need to stay out of them as
does Saudia Arabia, Russia, China, and others. Let them work out the problems in
their own countries and come to some kind of workable resolution.
Tucker Carlson, who I agree with only .0000000000000001% of the time hit it on
the head when he said:“Republicans have considered it their
duty to make the world safe for banking, while simultaneously prosecuting ever
more foreign wars.”The Republicans representing Utah in the
House definitely are reflected in Tucker's comments.
