The current events in Yemen are described as the world’s worst present-day humanitarian crisis. A civil war has claimed at least 100,000 lives, an estimated 12,000 were innocent civilian men, women, and children. Those numbers are just the casualties of war like air strikes and gunfire that were perpetuated by weapons that the United States has sold to Saudi Arabia.

It is estimated that 80 percent of the population needs humanitarian aid immediately. The United States’ hands are red, and they are the only country with power and leverage in Saudi Arabia.
