"With one hand gives the united states humanitarian assistance to save lives in Yemen."
"the other continues the Trump to deliver the weapons that kill the same people."
"While the president is doing everything to end the war in Afghanistan, he refuses to finish it in Yemen."
"When he yesterday vetoed the congressional decision to end the us military involvement in Yemen, so it was expected but still with an incomprehensible logic."
"Trump calls the war in Afghanistan pointless and unnecessary. The united states negotiates the best with the taliban about a peace agreement and the more Trump shows that he wants out of there, the less like the taliban that they need to compromise."
"For Trump, it does not seem to play any role that a likely consequence of a u.s. withdrawal is that the taliban re-take power with its strict variant of islamic governance, not unlike the Islamic state engaged in its caliphate before it was defeated."
"the united states invaded Afghanistan in the autumn of 2001 as a response to the terrorist attacks in the united states and to prevent that the country would continue to be a base for attacks against the west. With the taliban back at the helm is, of course, the risk that Afghanistan once again becomes a base for the planning of terrorist acts against the united states and Europe."
"But Trump has promised his voters to end the war and seems determined to do it before the election campaign starts in earnest in the presidential election in 2020."
"In the Yemen the situation is different. Which apparently do not apply Trump's motto that ”great nations do not participate in the endless war.”"
"the united states is not directly involved in the war with the combat troops. But it supports saudi Arabia with weapons and logistical support, such as reconnaissance for possible out potential bombing targets."
"Trump's motives for refusing to cease with the aid are mainly two."
"Reason two: Trump already has from the beginning worked hard to become close friend with the Saudi arabia's de facto leader, crown prince Muhammad bin Salman. Partly because Iran is also the saudi position gained traction in foremost of the enemy. Partly because the crown prince is an important player to get up to the rest of the arab world to accept one of the Trump frammäklad peace between Israel and the palestinians."
"But it is undeniably a bit strange when the president seems prepared to let the taliban, which in many ways is worse than Iran, while at the same time he refuses to contribute to put an end to the worst humanitarian crisis in the world right now, the war in Yemen."
"It gets even more strange when you consider that the united states last year, with seven million to humanitarian operations in Yemen, which aims to save people from starvation, diseases and other of the horrors of war while continuing to sell lots of weapons to the saudi war. During the last year more than 40 billion. Weapons used to bomb civilians in Yemen to pieces."
"– Trumps the veto will be to involve more suffering and death, say charities."
"It doesn't seem to matter what saudi Arabia does. Trump stands by their side regardless. "
"When the whole world is upset over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the fact that all the evidence suggests that it was Muhammad bin Salman who ordered the murder they claim Trump insisted there was no evidence. He ignores how female human rights activists are tortured in saudi prisons."
"the Double standards is just the beginning."
