The US has announced an end to its support for Saudi-led offensive operations in Yemen, citing the role the bombing campaign has had in creating the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The announcement was made by the national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, in a preview of a speech Joe Biden is due to deliver at the state department, capping a whiplash fortnight of dramatic foreign policy changes since his 20 January inauguration.

The distancing of Washington from Riyadh is one of the most conspicuous reversals of Donald Trump’s agenda, but it also marks a break with the policies pursued by Barack Obama, who had backed the Saudi offensive in Yemen, although he later sought to impose constraints on its air war.

Better late than never.  And humanitarian crisis is putting it mildly.

We have to wait to see if they actually do this, or if they only announce it.
White privilege is being a lifelong racist, then being sent to the White House twice because your running mate is a minority.

No Biden, no KKK, no Fascist USA!

I've heard these announcements hundreds of times before.  One more announcement should turn the tide, I would think.
