Human Rights Watch Daily Brief, 12 April 2016

Boko Haram wage war on education in Nigeria; US under fire on Yemen conflict; Saudi's women driving ban; refugee crisis; good news from Burma; Algeria jails activist for Facebook post; remembering Congo's Abbe Benoit; rocking LGBT rights in US; & child labor in gold supply chain...

Who's to blame when bombs kill civilians? The US, and other countries which arm the Saudi-led coalition as it wages war in Yemen, are coming under increasing scrutiny for their alleged role in civilian deaths.

If Saudi-led bombers can't do better avoiding Yemeni civilians, US shouldn't be helping them http://bit.ly/1NlVrGL

Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen--backed by the US--has made al Qaeda stronger and richer http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/yemen-aqap/ This should be a bigger scandal

1. Lovely. We sell the Saudis 2,000 lb. Mk-84 bombs that kill anyone within a half mile. Lovely.

And then there are the thermobaric fuel-air explosives the Saudis have been setting off in populated areas. Who's selling them those lovely mothers that are mistaken for tactical nukes?

We have seen the enemy, and the enemy is us.

4. Numbed Populace....Unable to cope with One Scandal after Another?

It becomes overwhelming when reported along with the endless drug commercials, The Internet Outages/Slowdowns for those who cut the Cable cord.. and just dealing with what passes for ordinary life these days with Terra Warnings, Virus Alerts, Food Safety Alerts, Violence,
the latest Trump News and The Rest that passes for Entertainment/Info-tainment morphed into all of the above?
