UN Official Says Yemen on Verge of Collapse
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS UNITED NATIONS — Oct 31, 2016, 1:09 PM ET

<Excerpt>:

The United Nations' humanitarian chief says that if the warring parties in Yemen do not reach a peace agreement soon, the country could collapse with menacing consequences for the entire region.

Stephen O'Brien told the Security Council on Monday that 80 percent of Yemenis, some 21.2 million people, need some form of humanitarian assistance and over 2 million people, including 370,000 children, are suffering from malnutrition.

We can hardly call out the Russians for their war crimes in Syria when we are supplying the arms for the Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

I think you mean fucking Iran who are supplying the rebels.
The Houthis are defending themselves. Your Saudi Sunni terrorist buddies want to genocide them all. About the same fate as they have in mind for the Alawite, Shiite, and Christian Syrians too. But Russia and aforementioned Iran have, fortunately, stepped in to helped THEM...

Is that why they were firing missiles at our ships? Self defense?

Right. Because Iran and Russia have been historically so concerned about civilian casualties.
