It is time for the U.S. to help negotiate the end of a war we helped start in Yemen. President Biden also announced plans last year to end the war in Yemen. He needs to followup on these plans.
A UN report projected that Yemen war deaths would reach 377,000 by end of the year 2021 (Aljazeera, 11-23-21). The report also estimated that 70% of those killed would be children under the age of five.
At least 5 million people in Yemen are on the brink of famine and a further 16 million are “marching toward starvation”, as the country’s humanitarian crisis spirals out of control (The Guardian, 9-23-21).
Classifying the Houthis as terrorists will also only make the situation worse. This would hinder deliveries of much needed aid. The following article on the Guardian does a good job of explaining this further (This article was written during the Trump Administration. But we still find the information relevant).
