A nine year old Yemeni child, along with his friends were on their way to school. On the bus ride, they were mutilated by a Saudi led coalition airstrike. The munitions were supplied by the U.S government who supports a regime that has ties to the 9/11 hijackers and has produced the most home grown jihadists out of any country. The family, friends, and neighbors who buried their beloved children now hold resentment against not only Saudi Arabia, but the country that unconditionally supports its barbarism, America. Some of them will now take up arms against America. Some of them may actually hit or threaten a U.S target, which gives the excuse for perpetual warfare. With more perpetual warfare comes more puppet regimes, blockades, drone strikes, and more resentment against the west. This, ladies and gentlemen is how the cycle of violence continues. This is what’s wrong with western foreign policy, as America is not the only country that still props up puppet regimes and quietly supports dictators.
