Fredsprisvinner Barack Obama har nå enda en folkerettsstridig krig på samvittigheten (om han har noen). Amerikanske kilser slår fast at USA spiller en helt sentral rolle i Saudi Arabias krig mot Jemen:
U.S. military officials said the Pentagon has expanded weapons shipments to the Saudi-led Arab coalition now conducting an air campaign against Iran-backed Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen.
By taking an active interest, the United States is deepening its involvement in the Yemen conflict which is being viewed in the region as a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
The McClatchy news agency reported that the weapons are likely precision-guided weapons as the Saudi alliance has no troops on the ground to provide targeting coordinates.
“It’s a combination of pre-existing orders to our partners and some new requirements,” said Army Col. Steve Warren, describing the arms shipments.
USA deltar med våpen, etterretning og annen kritisk støtte:
Speaking a day earlier in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken blamed the violence in Yemen on the Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, saying that the U.S. is committed to defending Saudi Arabia.
“We have expedited weapons deliveries, we have increased our intelligence sharing, and we have established a joint coordination and planning cell in the Saudi operations center,” he said in a statement to reporters after meeting with Saudi royals and Yemen’s President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who fled his country amid rebel advances and is currently in Saudi Arabia.

At the White House, Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the U.S. would continue its support for Saudi Arabia’s bombing campaign, which, he said, “is dedicated to addressing legitimate security concerns that they have along their border with Yemen.”
