I Apologize for My Country's Actions

Take Me To Post Comment Form

There is a family from Yemen who l i v e in South Modesto. They own and operate the River Road Market on River Rd. They are very nice people and they work hard to provide a clean, well-stocked store for the local residents. They help those who are sometimes low on cash by providing credit to them.

They come from a very poor country located just south of Saudi Arabia. In September 2014 a Houthi insurgency known as Ansar Allah attacked the nation's capital. In February 2015 these insurgents declared they were in control of the country. By March 2015 Saudi Arabia was leading a multi-nation coalition to restore the government in Yemen. The Saudis have been accused of launching indiscriminate bombing missions which have resulted in high civilian casualties. These attacks are being called war crimes by observers. Those bombs dropped by Saudi aircraft are made here in the United States and sold to the Saudi Kingdom. Recently the sale of $1.3 billion of weaponry was made to the Saudis. It is against international law for the United States to knowingly sell weapons to a country if we believe those weapons could or would be used against civilian targets, yet Saudi Arabia has already shown they are willing to indiscriminately bomb areas in Yemen resulting in high civilian casualties to the point of making their actions appear deliberate. The United States at this point should not be providing any more munitions to Saudi Arabia.

My apology goes out to this family from Yemen as I understand they have friends and relatives who are probably suffering from this mishandled effort to restore that nation's government. There is a problematic situation that could be corrected by the U.S. State Department if they weren't essentially part of that problem. It appears that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's incompetence has left a lasting mark on the State Department as this kind of reckless decision making was common for her while in office.

It's More Than Just Hillary
July 16, 2016
It's more than just the corrupt Clintons. It's more than an illegitimate president. It's more than just a miscarriage of justice that has cleared Hillary of prosecution for her crimes. What it is can best be described as an entire government overthrown by a gang of organized criminals who actively ...
