The United Nations says two air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen's civil war killed at least 68 civilians in a single day this week.
Humanitarian co-ordinator Jamie McGoldrick said Tuesday's first raid, on a busy market in Taiz province, left 54 people dead.
The second, in Hudaydah province, killed 14 members of the same family.

Mr McGoldrick said the incidents proved the "complete disregard for human life" by all parties to this "absurd war".
More than 8,750 people have been killed and 50,000 injured since the Saudi-led coalition intervened in the conflict between forces loyal to Yemen's government and the rebel Houthi movement in March 2015, according to the UN.
The fighting and a blockade by the coalition has also left 20.7 million people in need of humanitarian aid, created the world's largest food security emergency, and led to a cholera outbreak that is thought to have killed 2,227 people since April.

Nobody cares. Muslims don't care. Liberal press don't care. UN don't care. World don't care.
When USA moves it's embassy to Jerusalem, everyone cares.
When Israel ends up killing 2 civilians while defending herself, everyone cares.
When American drones end up killing a few bystanders while bombing terrorists, everyone cares.

It's a fucked up world.

There are 200 disputed territories in this world, but the Muslim-dominated UNGA focuses on one to near exclusivity.

I can't think of any rational reasoning for this bizarre phenomenon.

Palestinians live better than most people on the planet:
They have electricity, while 1.1 billion people have none.
They have food, while over 1 billion don't have enough food.
They have shelter, while most of the world's poor don't.

Oh those poor occupied Palestinians. Look at the hell they go through. Any human would rather die than live like that. It's a genocide.

Republicans including President Trump are the biggest enablers and supporters of Saudi tyranny and murder. Yet this propaganda thread tries to shift the blame onto progressives and Democrats, by claiming (very wrongly) that progressives do not complain loudly enough about the misdeeds?

Nice try, but only the feeble-minded are buying this propaganda. Put a sock in it already.

Saudi has been intervening in Yemen since March 2015. Most of the Gulf States, the UK, Australia, France and the US have also been participating since that date.

Iran, Hezbollah, and Qatar have been providing support to the Houthis.

Obama flat out declared logistical and intel support for the Saudi efforts.

Why does Obama hate Houthis?

I'm waiting for the D & R military Industrial Complex to bring war to a neighborhood near you.
Love photos of American cities laid to waste.
9/11 wasn't a bad start.

Because Hussein Obama is a Sunni.
