Washington, October 13 (RHC)-- Opposition to the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war in Yemen is growing in Washington, where lawmakers have introduced a congressional resolution to withdraw U.S. support for the ongoing bombing campaign.
In an op-ed for The New York Times, California Congressmember Ro Khanna, North Carolina Congressmember Walter Jones and Wisconsin Congressmember Mark Pocan write that they introduced the resolution “in order to help put an end to the suffering of a country approaching 'a famine of biblical proportions' … We believe that the American people, if presented with the facts of this conflict, will oppose the use of their tax dollars to bomb and starve civilians.”
The ongoing U.S.-backed, Saudi-led bombing campaign has killed more than 10,000 civilians; sparked a cholera epidemic by destroying Yemen’s health, water and sanitation systems; and has exacerbated a famine that’s left 7 million on the brink of starvation.
