Bombing a school bus that killed 44 children in Yemen was almost two months ago! We Americans have had so many other distractions since then. But the marriage of commerce and war continues largely unnoticed. The military contractors learned that when there are no American “boots on the ground,” we don’t bother to notice. And their profits roll in. But the people of the Middle East are well aware of US bombs and jet fuel behind the Saudi war on Yemen. Not good for our interests in the region. Working with Medea Benjamin, our guest author Nicolas J. S. Davies explains that our policy may be working in terms of American domestic polices,but not in the real world. But House ConRes 81 offers some hope to end the war; if we can convince our members of congress.
