The United States has been party to numerous war crimes by the Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen and is violating international requirements under the laws of war to investigate attacks on residential areas, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in a report.

The report, released Monday just hours after peace talks concluded with no clear resolution to the deadly conflict, finds that the Saudi-led campaign “carried out at least six apparently unlawful airstrikes in residential areas of the capital, Sana’a, in September and October 2015, killing 60 civilians.” (What are the Bush financed camel jockeys doing conducting military strikes against ANY nation?  Doing the DIRTY WORK for the criminal cabal?)

Human Rights Watch found no evidence that airstrikes on various neighborhoods of the Yemeni capital had a military target. The rights group visited the sites in late October and interviewed survivors. “These attacks failed to distinguish civilians from military objectives or caused disproportionate civilian loss,” it said.

“How many civilians will die in unlawful airstrikes in Yemen before the coalition and its US ally investigate what went wrong and who is responsible,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director for HRW.

“Their disregard for the safety of civilians is appalling.”

The New York-based NGO said the US, by coordinating and directly assisting military operations in Yemen, is a party to the conflict and should investigate the “unlawful attacks in which it took part.

The US has supplied the Saudis with American-made weaponry for its military intervention in Yemen and has shared intelligence to support Riyadh’s targeting decisions. 

In mid-November, the US State Department approved the sale of $1.29 billion worth of laser-guided bombs to the Saudis.  (IS IT ANY WONDER THAT THE ENTIRE PLANET HATES THE UNITED STATES?)

Since it launched the strikes in March, the Saudi-led coalition has bombed hospitals, markets, schools, power plants, refugee camps, factories, and warehouses storing humanitarian supplies in Yemen.  

HRW noted in the report that it is "unaware of any investigations by Saudi Arabia or other members of the nine-nation coalition into these or other allegedly unlawful strikes, or of any compensation for victims."

In October, Saudi Arabia successfully pressed the United Nations to abandon its proposal for a human rights inquiry investigating both sides in the war.

More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured in the conflict. The Saudi war has also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure. 

How is it that the U.S.A. criminal corporation (posing as the rightful government of the united States Republic) along with its partners in crimes, in this case the Saudis, can continue to conduct their criminal acts without any repercussions, arrests, prosecutions, and proper punishments for their illegal actions?  Did the American people have any knowledge of what was going on here? Did we have the opportunity to say 'yes' or 'no' to the U.S.A.'s criminal plans?  Do we have an appropriate method and support to put a stop to these criminal acts?  Do we have a way to let the entire planet know that the American people are not aware of nor involved in nor approve of these criminal actions as taken by the criminals in the corporate U.S.A. Wash DC?  What goes around comes around. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Our time is coming - and soon -  for retribution by the people of the planet because we have allowed these horrors to continue in our name.
