US must end financial and military efforts in Yemen
We must all urge our representatives in Congress to sponsor and adopt SJRes. 56 and HJRes. 87 linked to the Saudi war in Yemen. This legislation would end unauthorized US military support and arms sales to Saudi Arabia, restore funding for humanitarian aid to Yemen and encourage diplomacy to end the war.
The United States has many conflicting goals in its foreign policy. We claim to support democratic governments. But we also have interests that benefit the United States. One of the most contentious areas is our need for oil. Because the United States currently needs oil to maintain its standard of living, we often find ourselves supporting undemocratic governments.
