“Your really–REALLY–must watch this exchange between Rand Paul and Wolf Blitzer on the bombing of Yemen. I am speechless…”
Professor Dave Collum

Saudi Arabia began bombing Yemen in March 2015. According to the UN, from March 2015 to December 2017, about 10 thousand people have been killed, including more than 5,200 civilians. Hospitals, civilian factories, markets, schools, and homes are intentionally targeted.
The following exchange between CNN Wolf Blitzer and US Senator Ran Paul needs no comments.
CNN Wolf Blitzer — “So for you this is a moral issue. Because you know, there’s a lot of jobs at stake. Certainly if a lot of these defense contractors stop selling war planes, other sophisticated equipment to Saudi Arabia, there’s going to be a significant loss of jobs, of revenue here in the United States. That’s secondary from your standpoint?”
Senator Rand Paul — “Well not only is it a moral question, it is a constitutional question. Our founding fathers very directly and specifically did not give the president the power to go to war. They gave it to Congress. So Congress needs to step up and this is what I’m doing.”
