@clairecmc, @SenDonnelly, @Sen_JoeManchin, @MarkWarner, @SenBillNelson: #StopArmingSaudi War Crimes in Yemen
Petition by Robert R Naiman

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Pass the Young and Merkley amendments to stop arming Saudi Arabia’s war crimes in Yemen.
There are currently 11,576 signatures. NEW goal – We need 15,000 signatures!
PETITION BACKGROUND Because of Saudi Arabia’s war and blockade, Yemen is on the brink of famine [1] and a million malnourished children in Yemen are at risk from cholera. [2] Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen is also helping Al Qaeda, [3] as even the State Department acknowledged in a July 2017 report. [4] U.S. arming of Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen could make the U.S. a co-belligerent in international law and make U.S. officials liable for Saudi Arabia’s war crimes. [5]

On June 13, only five Democratic Senators voted to keep arming Saudi Arabia’s famine-inducing war in Yemen: Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Mark Warner of Virginia, Bill Nelson of Florida, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. The vote was 47-53. If these five Democrats had voted with the Senate Democratic leadership and the majority of Senate Democrats, the Senate would have voted to block the Saudi arms deal. [6]

Senator Todd Young [R-IN] and Senator Jeff Merkley [D-OR] have introduced amendments on the National Defense Authorization Act [NDAA] which would block the arming of Saudi Arabia’s war crimes in Yemen. Senator Young’s amendment would prohibit any arms transfers to Saudi Arabia until the Saudis stop bombing civilian infrastructure and stop blocking humanitarian aid. [7] Senator Merkley’s amendment would prohibit the transfer of cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia. [8]

Urge Claire McCaskill, Joe Donnelly, Mark Warner, Bill Nelson, and Joe Manchin to publicly back the Young and Merkley amendments to stop arming Saudi Arabia’s war crimes in Yemen by signing our petition.

My Comment:  Zionism is state sponsored Terrorism.  It should be obvious that the U.S. Gov is a Zionist occupied gov’t which is why we have endless wars.  This is Zionist (Synagogue of Satan) policy and these wars are all based on lies and deceit. (Another Synagogue of Satan policy.)
