Will Congress Finally Pull the Plug on Brutal Yemen War?

Three years of Saudis dropping American bombs on Yemeni civilians is starting to get noticed in Congress. A requirement in the defense authorization bill that the Administration certify that the Saudis were at least not trying to kill civilians was put into place and now a new piece of legislation seeks to remove the US military from the conflict. Will it work? Tune in to today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

  1. Public opinion doesn’t matter much unless it becomes a tsunami. Most Americans have for several years opposed the bloody, illegal, expensive, counterproductive and immoral regime change wars, but Congress and presidents keep supporting and expanding them because of the huge bribes, euphemistically known as campaign contributions and corporate board seats, that they receive from the Military Industrial Complex and groups such as AIPAC, and voters keep electing and re-electing them. It’s going to take massive demonstrations and electoral defeats of the neocon hawks who dominate both parties to change things.
