The cost of the man-made catas­tro­phe in Ye­men

Santa Fe New Mexican - - OPINIONS -

The United Na­tions re­ported re­cently that 20 mil­lion Ye­men cit­i­zens don’t know where their next meal is com­ing from (“A cri­sis in Ye­men,” An­other View, Nov. 11). The coun­try is on the cusp of one of the most dev­as­tat­ing famines in his­tory, and it is man-made by Saudi bomb­ing and em­bargo, with U.S. sup­port. I have writ­ten to the New Mex­ico rep­re­sen­ta­tives I voted for — Demo­crat U.S. Sens. Tom Udall, and Martin Hein­rich, and Demo­crat U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lu­ján — to ask them to speak up, but I felt their re­sponse was to avoid the ques­tion. Does that mean the sale of $100 bil­lion in arms to Saudi Ara­bia was the price of moral in­tegrity?
