Yemen Background Info

The Yemen Civil War is a humanitarian crisis.  Saudi Arabian aggression triggered a continuing bloodbath.  The Trump Administration supports the Saudis and their bloodbath.  Some voices in Congress want the US out and to stop supporting the Saudis with arms and intelligence.  A good overview of this complex and tragic situation appeared in  al-Jazeera several weeks ago.  Definitely worth a read:

 "....Yemen's southern coastal city of Aden has been gripped by days of fighting after armed separatist forces - backed by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) - moved against the internationally recognised government.

Fighters from the Southern Resistance Forces (SRF), the armed wing of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) - a political movement demanding secession for southern Yemen -clashed with the Yemeni army and were able to wrest control of a key military base in Aden's Khormaksar district and capture scores of soldiers.

The STC is said to have precipitated the crisis by handing President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's government an ultimatum last week to either dismiss Prime Minister Ahmed bin Dhagr and his cabinet or face an overthrow.

The group accused Hadi's government of "rampant corruption" resulting in a "deteriorating economic, security and social situation never before witnessed in the history of the south"....
