International organizations such as the UN children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the British Save the Children Fund (“save the children” — approx. ed.) warn that every 35 seconds with cholera in Yemen is infected with one child. Over the past three weeks the number of cases has tripled, while the number of cases of children under the age of 15 years is 50%.
In Yemen recorded 924 deaths due to the cholera epidemic. It is expected that this figure could increase to 250 thousand and the majority of deaths will be children.
To such disastrous consequences resulted in the starvation of population as a result of the ongoing fighting. About 14.5 million Yemenis, including nearly eight million children do not have access to clean drinking water and medical services.
The US President Donald trump made a “gift” of the Yemeni people. During his recent visit to Saudi Arabia, he signed a number of agreements on the supply of arms, which will lead to missile attacks, murders, vandalism, destruction of infrastructure and health facilities in Yemen.
In other words, the US will return to active participation in the Yemeni conflict, along with Saudi Arabia, head of the Arab coalition and the operation of the “Strong storm”, the army of Ali Abdullah Saleh, Houthis, militants “al-Qaeda” (banned in Russia — approx. ed.) and the army of Abd-rabbu Mansour Hadi.
The involvement of Washington in the conflict in Yemen is not something new. In October last year, the military aircraft of Saudi Arabia launched an airstrike on a funeral procession, which killed 150 people. The administration of President Barack Obama has stopped the supply of arms to Riyadh, which the Saudis used to commit war crimes. However, according to the statement of Secretary of defense James Mattis, the administration of trump’s “frozen” Obama’s decision and resumed doing business with Saudi Arabia.
In the resumption of the arms deals with Saudi Arabia the main role is played by the personal interest of trump, who in may signed a number of agreements with the Kingdom worth about $ 110 billion.
Arms deals cause serious harm to the attempts of political settlement of the situation in Yemen because, on the one hand, they add fuel to the flames of civil war are the weapons of mass destruction.
On the other hand, Iran calls for more active arming of the Houthis and sending militants to Syria and Iraq.
In addition, Iran is funding jihadists in Yemen, extending a hand to al-Qaida so that they could attract new supporters, thirsting for revenge and cruelty.
During a debate in the Senate democratic Senator Chris Murphy said about arms deals with Saudi Arabia that the U.S. is not interested in supporting the war in Yemen. It allows the enemies of America and terrorists to strengthen their forces, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis in the country and spreading fear and hatred in the hearts of the Yemeni people in the United States. However, he warned that this war will negatively affect the United States.
However, another Senator stated that some of his colleagues received generous “donations” from the Saudi arms companies and groups, pushes their interests. And it is obvious why the Senate voted in favor of the deal on arms, because the work is much more important than the blood of Yemeni children!
At the time, the Obama administration rejected the demand of the Arab coalition on sending “experts” from the Pentagon for making their direct participation in the storming of the Yemeni port of Hodeidah and the expulsion from it of the Houthis.
It is unclear whether the support of the White house large-scale US military intervention in Yemen or follow the example of the Obama administration.
It is hard either to predict, however, the US President continues to fulfill his electoral promise. Saudi Arabia paid a huge amount of Washington for their support costs in the war in Yemen.
Saliva trump will never cease, and all the witnesses!
