In 2015, when Saudi Arabia announced its intervention in Yemen President Obama immediately authorized a support package that included intelligence-sharing and logistical support for military operations. Without direct U.S. military assistance, particularly aerial refueling the Saudi’s could not effectively commit mass murder. Yet, the New York Times along with the other DNC leaning mainstream media showed no concern. The Yemen famine and murder of 10’s of thousands women and children from U.S. supplied weapons and military support were well underway before Obama left office.
There was no outrage from Silicon Valley tech giants, or their politically far-left employees. No, stopping of taking investment money from the executioner of the innocent. After-all, it was President Obama who was complicit in this crime against humanity; again.
Even before “Barry the Bomber” left office, even the minimal coverage of the U.S. backed atrocities in Yemen disappeared from the mainstream media; replaced by “RussiaGate”, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week non-stop Russia, Russia, Russia, Putin, Putin. It seems they are upset that their preferred war criminal, Hillary Clinton, loss the election.
There is no such thing as coincidence, Yemen was not even on the media radar until after the murder of Saudi National and Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The media wanted Saudi Arabia severely punished, and when they found out it was not going to happen then, and only then, the atrocities in Yemen became an issue. Again, a tragedy became a political weapon.
But in the end President Trump, like Obama, is turning out to be just another war criminal by selling more weapons to mass murderers.
