Finally something on Yemen

In response to an FT View on 12th October 2016, entitled ‘Saudi Arabia’s senseless pursuit of war in Yemen’

“The massacre in Sana’a should mark an end to western support… It should not have required the massacre of more than 140 people at a funeral for Washington to review support for the Saudi-led coalition’s brutish war in Yemen… State department officials have squirmed when trying to bat off recent suggestions from Moscow and Tehran that the methods deployed by their ally in Yemen are little different from those used by the Syrian regime in Aleppo – FT View

About time.

This helps to explain why people are increasingly sickened by governmental and media cries of 'war crimes' when it's the ‘bad guys', and deafening silence or 'weasel words' when it's the 'good guys'.

The human race is indeed in trouble when 'good' and 'bad' is decided by a bunch of sociopathic neocons in Washington, the arms dealers who fund them, and a spineless press that lets it go unchallenged 99% of the time.

Thanks FT, for showing some backbone on this. Please speak out sooner on these issues.
