Vote "YES" on the War Powers Act!

On August 9, a US-made Lockheed Martin bomb was dropped by Saudi Arabia on a Yemeni school bus. Forty-four young children were killed.

The US-supported Saudi-led war and blockade has pushed Yemen to the brink of famine. It has caused the worst cholera outbreak on record, and the largest humanitarian crisis of modern times. Every 10 minutes a child in Yemen dies of preventable causes like malnutrition and diarrhea. When UNICEF's director was asked how to end Yemen's humanitarian catastrophe, he simply said: "Stop the war."

The best impact we can have to stop the war is by ending US weapons sales to Saudi Arabia.  Tell your representative in Congress to cosponsor and vote YES on the War Powers Resolution, a bipartisan House resolution calling for an end to the unauthorized U.S. participation in the Saudi-led war on Yemen.

    The United States has historically supported Saudi Arabia. The Saudi government appears to be more stable to the region as well as more friendly to the West. This conflict seems to be between Shia and Sunni Muslims, a power struggle between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Looking to become more educated on the subject. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-29319423

    We need to get out of the Middle-East and go solar all over the world. I have some new lyrics to John Lennon’s Imagine.

    Imagine there’s no pipeline, it isn’t hard to do
    Clean clear drinking water, and no polution too
    Imagine all the people, saving Mother Earth. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one, I hope some day you’ll join us.
    And the world will be run by the sun.
    Francis Collins- added lyrics to John’s song

    Gee, since Peace seems unprofitable for military-corporate contractors, then perhaps they can go to War on THEMSELVES!?
