The Saudi air campaign is targeting schools, hospitals, markets-and U.S. military support makes it all possible

"Despite Saudi claims that they are striking military targets only, civilians appear to be the main victims of the air war." "This is reason enough to command our concern and attention. But what sets this apart from the similar horrors in Aleppo is the fact that many (if not all) of the bombs being dropped on these civilians were provided by the United States and that the planes used to deliver them were in many cases guided there by US-supplied target data and refueled mid-air by US tanker planes. If Saudi Arabia is eventually found guilty of war crimes, the United States, at the very least, is an accessory to the carnage." (thanks Amir)
