No one seriously interested in preventing nuclear proliferation would want to scrap a major nonproliferation agreement, but that is what Trump did on Bolton’s advice and with Netanyahu’s enthusiastic support.
The attack killed more than 50 civilians, including 40 children, and injured another 79 people.
Bolton is setting absurd expectations based on his misrepresentations of what happened at previous meetings.
The administration’s demands for Iran are preposterous, and in their maximalism they betray the administration’s real goal to be regime change.
U.S. involvement must end at once, but beyond that it is crucial that the U.S. never enable another senseless war like this again.

The creation of the Iran Action Group formalizes an Iran policy that inflicts cruel collective punishment on the Iranian people while pretending to care about their welfare
When the U.S. and U.N. allow the Saudi coalition to investigate their own crimes, they are aiding the Saudis and their allies in covering up massacres.
It is horrifying that it takes the massacre of over three dozen small boys to force our media and our government to pay close attention to what U.S. policy has been making possible for more than three years.
Our government’s support for the war on Yemen exemplifies all of what is worst in U.S. foreign policy.

As long as U.S. support for the war on Yemen continues, there are sure to be more senseless killings of civilians like the one we saw last week.
As long as the U.S. enables Saudi coalition crimes and then shields them from scrutiny, our government is implicated in both the crime and the cover-up.
Obsessing over a non-existent Iranian threat to U.S. interests obviously has nothing to do with American security.
U.S. support for the Saudi coalition is essential to their war effort, and that makes our government deeply complicit in what the coalition does in Yemen.
It isn’t possible to trash one of the most significant diplomatic agreements of the last several decades and then get the other parties that you just betrayed to come back to the table.
“Support Iranian voices” does not mean what you think it means. Shervin …
There is no point in calling for an inquiry by the perpetrators of the crime.
How many more Yemeni schoolchildren will the Saudi coalition have to blow up before Congress acts to put a stop to U.S. support for these atrocities?← Older posts
