Yemen Bombing Victim Buthaina

Posted on | September 5, 2017 | No Comments

One of incessant bombings of Yemen killed eight members of a family in the capital of Sanaa with only four-year-old Buthaina Muhammad Mansour surviving. She suffered a concussion and skull fractures but is expected to live. In the meantime, she is trying to open her badly swollen eyes. Her family is among thousands of Yemeni civilians killed by Saudi and U.S. bombs in a war that has no plausible explanation and is hardly in the U.S. national interest. The same is true of other current U.S. wars, which are barely reported (how many can you name?), but are no less real for that.
