The people of Yemen rejected the puppet ruler set up by Saudi Arabia to rule the country. So they exercised their rights and ousted him then voted in their own leader. Ever since that happened the Saudis have been at war with Yemen and killing thousands of people. The US is a close ally of Saudi Arabia and have every intention of helping them fight against Yemen and any other enemy, including Lebanon and Iran. Those are the facts and the realities we face in the Middle East. The US is not lily white clean and blameless in this war and many other wars. The politicians determine who the enemies are and they determine where to send our soldiers to fight, and they determine if our men and women will die and how many of the "enemy of the month" will die. It is not done to make a better world or to defend our way of life or to save democracy, it is done for global power and control. And, throw in a few $ billions in growing poppies for opium and shipping it to Europe and America. That is the real world we have inherited and that is what the politicians in Washington DC stand for. And that is the system that Trump has not changed one bit! Don't tell me he is doing the best job he can do. He is doing what his handlers tell him to do and those that financed him want him to do. He is now the front man for the international bankers, Israel, the military industrial complex and the globalists. Wars are not diminishing they are increasing. Conflicts are not being wound down they are be staged up for larger wars. And, the ones we should be attacking, namely North Korea, to prevent millions from being killed - are being allowed more time to build more missiles and bombs! This is a nightmare scenario that could lead to a global nuclear war. Accept no excuses for the failure to seek peace and avoid wars - because there are no valid reasons, only lame excuses.
The US Air Force plans to keep refueling Saudi Arabian warplanes committing atrocities in Yemen that have led to the world’s most pressing humanitarian crisis, according to the United Nations.
The US House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in support of House Resolution 599 Monday, passing the measure by a vote of 366-30. The bipartisan bill does not prevent US tankers from providing fuel to Saudi warplanes but does call for a political solution to the crisis, which House Democrats apparently saw as a compromise.

A previous bill introduced by House Democrats, HR 81, "in no way" restricted US military support of counterterrorism efforts in Yemen, Ro Khanna (D-CA) said September 27. "All this bill [HR 81] basically does is say we should not be assisting Saudi Arabia in Yemen," she said.
HR 599 "denounces the conduct of activities in Yemen and areas affected by the conflict that are, directly or indirectly, inconsistent with the laws of armed conflict, including the deliberate targeting of civilian populations or the use of civilians as human shields."
