UN Report on Yemen Ignore US Responsibility for War

UN Report on Yemen Ignores US Responsibility for War

Home – Stephen Lendman)

US-orchestrated full-scale Saudi/UAE-led aggression on the country began in March 2015. 

Group of Regional And International Eminent Experts on Yemen said “the Government of Yemen and the coalition, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and in the de facto authorities have committed acts that may, subject to determination by an independent and competent court, amount to international crimes.”

There’s no ambiguity about what’s going on and the culpable parties. 

The so-called “Group of Experts (said they have) have reasonable grounds to believe that individuals in the Government of Yemen and the coalition may (sic) have conducted attacks in violation of the principles of distinction, proportionality and precaution that may amount to war crimes.”

“There is little evidence of any attempt by parties to the conflict to minimize civilian casualties.”

An earlier UNICEF report said at least one Yemeni child under age-five dies every 10 minutes from starvation alone. 

There’s no ambiguity about horrific ongoing war crimes, Washington, NATO, the Saudis and UAE largely responsible, even Israel to blame for supporting US-orchestrated aggression.

The so-called Group of Experts ignored US responsibility for orchestrating naked aggression on the region’s poorest country.

Houthi fighters aren’t free from culpability for illegal actions throughout the war. Yet their offenses are minor compared to US-orchestrated aggression on the country, along with Saudi/UAE-led terror-bombing and other high crimes, including illegal detentions, torture, and other abuses.

Other countries involved are guilty of partnering with America’s rage for dominance regardless of the human cost.

The so-called Group of Experts failed to lay blame where it mostly belongs. The scourge of US imperialism is what its endless wars of aggression are all about.
