Joe Biden is giving assistance to a dangerous foreign government.
And chaos is erupting in one key country because of Biden’s actions.
But now, Rand Paul is standing up to Biden and demanding that it stop.
The regime in Saudi Arabia has caused enormous bloodshed and death in Yemen, including of massive amounts of innocent civilians.
According to a new article from Al Jazeera, “A new United Nations report has projected that the death toll from Yemen’s war will reach 377,000 by the end of 2021, including those killed as a result of indirect and direct causes.”
That’s sickening, but when you get down into the details, it gets even more heart-wrenching.
The article continues, “In a report published Tuesday, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) estimated that 70 percent of those killed would be children under the age of five.”
The Saudi government is responsible for a huge amount of the death and destruction in Yemen.
According to Yahoo News, “a Saudi-led coalition airstrike Tuesday gutted a plastics factory in Yemen’s rebel-held capital of Sanaa, the rebels said, the latest attack amid an escalation in fighting in recent weeks.”
And now, Joe Biden is helping them cause this immense destruction by selling them American weapons to use against innocent civilians in Yemen.
A separate Al Jazeera article states that “The United States has approved a $650 million sale of air-to-air missiles to Saudi Arabia, the Pentagon announced, in what would be the Biden administration’s first major weapons deal with the Gulf kingdom.”
But one man has made it his mission to kill off this deal before it costs the lives of even more innocent people.
Responsible Statecraft reports, “Rand Paul’s office told RS today that the Republican senator is readying a joint resolution of disapproval to stop the Biden Administration’s expected sale of $650 million worth of ‘defensive’ air-to-air missiles, or AMRAAMs, as well as 596 missile launchers to Saudi Arabia, as announced on Nov. 4th.”
Paul is trying to avoid any more destruction by the Saudi’s using our American-built weapons. He wants Biden to stop causing needless destruction around the world.
But as long as America is tied at the hip with Saudi Arabia, the bloodshed will continue.
As the Yahoo article states, “Yemen’s war began with the 2014 takeover of Sanaa by the Houthis, who control much of the country’s north. The Saudi-led coalition entered the war the following year determined to restore the internationally recognized government and oust the rebels.”
People are still dying on a daily basis from this awful and inhumane war. The Yahoo article continues, “Humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders said its trauma hospital in Mocha received 45 wounded from fighting on Friday and Saturday. It was the second influx of wounded to the group’s hospital in the last 10 days, the group said Monday.”
Instead of focusing on America and trying to fix the economy, Joe Biden has spent his time bombing innocent people in the Middle East at the behest of his friends in the Military-Industrial Complex.
America would be wise to listen to responsible leaders like Rand Paul instead.
