Monday night the Saudi-led American backed coalition bombed a hospital in Yemen. While it appears nobody was killed in the direct attack the hospital serves around 200,000 people, and in a poor war-torn country like Yemen those people do not really have an alternative.
While at first it was unclear who did the bombing(because Saudi Arabia denied it) it is now clear because the coalition has admitted that the bombing was indeed theirs.
Even though it was Saudi Arabia carrying out this bombing their coalition’s war can only occur with explicit support from the United States. Ever since the war really took off in March of this year the United States has been whole hardily consistent in providing weapons and logistical support for Saudi Arabia, while the media in America has been virtually silent on this issue. All in all this makes two civilian hospitals in less than a month for the Obama administration.
Here are just a few of the ways the American government along with our European friends have been supporting a brutal monarchy bomb the ever loving shit out of a small country so that we can appease an “ally” that would turn their backs on us in a second(in addition to probably helping the 911 hijackers) and so defense contractors can make a few extra bucks.
The above Wall Street Journal describes the United State’s support quite clearly. Plus you gotta love how that headline is followed by the tag line “Washington has concerns about Riyadh’s goals in the conflict”
In the article we get some proof that the United States is actively providing targets and information for most of the bombings that are occurring nowadays.
Once the war was well under way the United States updated the Saudi’s military quite extensively.
So while it is somebody from Saudi Arabia or UAE dropping the bomb it is done with US or European equipment and the targets are provided by the United States military.
Perhaps the most messed up thing about this is how Western countries actively colluded to make Saudi Arabia the head of the UN Human Rights Council thus making it extremely difficult for the UN to do anything about the situation.
It is even asserted by the Associated Press that the United States Military(Green Berets in particular) knew that the target was a functioning hospital. This makes two hospital bombings, and two outrageous war crimes, in just one month for the Obama administration.
