Just last week, an American warship fired missiles to destroy 3 anti-ship missile radar bases in Yemen. It was retaliation for an unsuccessful missile attack by Yemen’s insurgent Government forces: Houthi tribesmen or militias run by the country’s ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh. It was America’s first direct military intervention in the Yemen war, and deepened our identification with a war-crime filled war started by our allies, the King and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. CodePink founder Medea Benjamin looked at our Saudi alliance in her book, Kingdom of the Unjust.
