Houthis Commit Atrocities Too - Well, Sort Of.

By now we're all too familiar with al Qaeda executing people and ISIS beheading captives, even burning them alive.  But let's not overlook the Houthi rebels in Yemen.  They too are committing atrocities, hundreds and hundreds of them. Why, they turned some schools into temporary barracks preventing kids from attending classes for - wait for it - ten days!

Fortunately, Euro-mid Observer has kept an eye on those Houthis and has published a summary of their skulduggery.  It's enough to make your blood boil - or not.

Followed the link. My goodness, what a horribly brutal civil war! Why, people are looting! And they're actually raiding the houses of their enemies! Why, mercy me, if your military opponents' own houses are not sacred, what is?

Not to make light. I mean, it looks as if innocent people have been thrown in jail. Why, it's as if Trudeau had invoked the War Measures Act over there!

You forgot civilians killed by bombing by the Saudi Arabians and allies.

And this is just Yemen, the middle east is such a disaster, but that's what happens when you sow chaos and destruction in a region, entire generations have know little but violence thanks to the west.
