Jim Carrey wrote in a tweet posted by the actor , “40 innocent children killed on a bus in Yemen.” And added, “Our ally. Our missile. Our crime.” 

He also shared one of his pieces of artwork...

Truer word were never spoken and, to me anyways, the image is very moving. 

We, as Americans, are complicit for selling weapons of war to a country like Saudi Arabia who has one of the worse records on human rights in the world. 

The murder of those 40 innocent children, that were murdered with a laser-guided MK 82 bomb made by Lockheed Martin while they were riding inside a school bus, should make us all acknowledge our guilt because they were not rebels, they were not terrorist, they were kids on a fucking field trip.  

Americans should feel great shame over the death of these children.

BTW, if you want to earn my total disdain, tell me how American NEEDS to supply terrorist butchers like the Saudis with their murder weapons of choice and that those CHILDREN are "acceptable collateral damage" in exchange for "American jobs.

BTW, Lockheed Martin spends HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of dollars in campaign contributions and lobbying efforts to promote the sale of weapons to rat bastards like the Saudis. 

In fact, Amnesty International had this to say about our "rat bastard ally" Saudi Arabia:

"The authorities severely restricted freedoms of expression, association and assembly. Many human rights defenders and critics were detained and some were sentenced to lengthy prison terms after unfair trials. Several Shi’a activists were executed, and many more were sentenced to death following grossly unfair trials before the Specialized Criminal Court (SCC). Torture and other ill-treatment of detainees remained common. Despite limited reforms, women faced systemic discrimination in law and practice and were inadequately protected against sexual and other violence. The authorities used the death penalty extensively, carrying out scores of executions. The Saudi-led coalition continued to commit serious violations of international law in Yemen."

We need to STOP selling weapons of war to EVERYONE in the Middle East.  To accomplish this we need to tell our Congressional representatives "NO FUCKING MORE!"

Until we do, the blood of all of those children are on our hands.

Interesting article in RollingStone about Yemen,

"But we have not yet supplied any of the anti-Houthi coalition partners with drones. The reason, ostensibly, is that the United States only sells drones to countries that will “use these systems in accordance with international law.” So we can sell Saudi Arabia F-15s, but not drones – at least not yet.


But this may soon change. The Chinese have been supplying both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with drones, which reportedly have been used in this campaign.

The Trump administration, perhaps freaked out about the loss of market share, is said to be pushing for the relaxation of rules that will allow sales of our unmanned assassination technology to actors like Saudi Arabia."
