The cost of the man-made catastrophe in Yemen
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?
