A deafening Silence. That is how the world is reacting to the screams and miseries of the Yemeni children. I will not ask why or how are they able to be so silent? By now we are used to the indifference of the world when it comes to the atrocities committed by Imperialism in the name of democracy in the Middle East.
Have you ever noticed that The United States of America, the police-man of the world, also knows how to make the best burger (McDonalds), pizza ( Pizza hut) ,Chips and Beverages (Pepsi Co) in the world. If that is not enough then the most effective, powerful and smart weapons are also forged inside the Military Industrial Complex of USA. Now, it turns out that a commodity, on which for years the Middle-East and especially the Saudi monarchy have been exercising a clout, seems to shift its axis of power, veering towards another continent i.e. North America.
As a result of Saudi bombing raids, Yemen’s underdeveloped socio-economic infrastructure has been largely destroyed. Post-war planning will need to be followed by international aid for development, with post-war socio-economic construction developed on a basic needs approach.
