A humanitarian catastrophe that has killed thousands and left millions on the brink of starvation, the Saudi war against Yemen, and blockade of the country has been regularly criticized by human rights groups. The US has endorsed the war, but its involvement doesn’t get a lot of publicity.
Still, US involvement is growing, with the number of Pentagon advisers sent to Saudi Arabia more than doubled to 45 now, and regular shipments of munitions and in-air refueling of bombers serving as the main US contributions to the war effort against Yemeni Shi’ites.
Officials say that the advisory role includes helping the Saudis pick out which targets to attack, a particularly damning admission given the enormous civilian death toll from the Saudi airstrikes against residential areas nationwide.
The Pentagon is insisting, by way of an explanation, that they aren’t “responsible” for any specific strikes that happen in Yemen, so even though they provided the bombs, fueled the planes, and picked the targets, those deaths are somehow not their fault.

“The Pentagon” , words written as if describing some faceless entity, aa if all military matters were decided within that one edifice.
The Pentagon provides cover for murders, perverters of humanity, cutthroats and thieves who hide behind their uniforms within concrete, brick, steel and stone and stensiled names and military titles of rank upon wooden doors.
There is no room for conscience within those words, they have but one goal, to subjugate world by the most effecient means.
The lower uniformed are all completely expendable, and they wlill do as ordered or be early terminatedof employ or life if a superior wants it.
The questio. I pose today to the super patriots Nd blithering idiots of why worry generations is; Shouldn’t you be concerned when the Pentagon in the name of National Defense, decides to let 1out of every 2 pacifi. Coast residents die of cancers induced by their illegal weapons enrichments at fukushima And their real bosses at State Department ups by 1000x the acceptable levels of radionuclides we will accept in Imported Japanese foods
Eyes glaze over and soon they walk away, zombies and drones of the hive, mind dead they only seem to care about own pleasures.
SO what the hell does 30 years of slaughtering of hundreds of thousand brown
and black skinned people thousands of miles away have to do with them.
They have “The Pentagon” to take care of that problem.
Put names and faces to those engaged in the human butcher shops of US Military and their political financial bosses no more hide behinds.
The double languages by USG is nothing new, historically they have used their double face as well as language depending on who, where and what their falsified democracy is up with, this time is Saudis.
Empire USA — A dictator head that knows how to wag it’s dictator tails
This war is doing no good for Saudi Arabia, not for it’s reputation, wealth nor ability to maintain dictator enslavement of the homeland. On the other hand, all the bombs and jet fuel that we pour into this war comes at an astronomical price for that power combine of oil-rich dictators, which improves the ability of our Empire to enslave our voting majority, a most self-absorbed mainstream that worships above all things our economy and the Wall Street rich that rules over it.
The starvation blockade, using food as a weapon, is a separate subject from the bombing of civilians.
Both are crimes. They are different actions, and violate different parts of the laws of war.
The US is part of both.
The Saudis are utterly incapable of doing either one of these things without US help.
It is US contractors connected with the US military who keep the Saudi planes flying. It is continuous delivery of spares and ammo that keeps the campaign going. It is US assets that provide the targeting data, US satellites and US drones and US airspace control.
The US Navy controls the seas in the area. It monitors everything, and nothing happens without its permission. The Saudis could not do operations in those waters without US permission. They don't have the resources, and anyway the US Navy cannot risk operating without control of the waters around its carriers.
What the Saudis do, both of these major crimes against civilians, the US is doing.
Why? Probably it is the price of support for the Iran deal.
Trust the USA to be helping the worst of the régimes on the globe, while pretending Israel is a "good guy" and Iran is a supporter of terrorism.
Hence, why Russia should now go to town on Kiev. The U.S. doesn't have one shred of credibility when it comes to human rights or border integrity. These thugs in the Pentagon helping Saudi Arabia should be brought to justice for war crimes when the time comes.
