How about UNICEF saying yesterday that 62 children have died so far?

Is that too Iranian for you?


All the more reason for Iran to get out of Yemen.

Your lack of apathy was already pointed out in my original reply.

Apparently for you the only civilians that merit sympathy are the ones the Saudi Arabians killed not Houthi rebels or Government forces?

You know if you would be honest and admit this thread is agenda driven I could at least respect you.

*SNIP*


This is specifically about the children killed by Airstikes tonight...

Make your own thread and you can decide the context.



I don't need an "agenda" or "tactics" to empathise with children who were alive this morning being shelled by the world's most barbaric superpower!


And when Yemeni rebels start flying over Saudi Arabia bombing children I'll make another thread.
Until then...
This thread is about something you haven't discussed yet.

So discuss it or move on to your own Houthi rebels killing Saudi children thread...
That doesn't exist...
Because it didn't happen!

Civilian have been dying in Yemen from fighting for decades. Only now you bother to notice? What has been going on in Yemen has nothing to do with the Saudis or Iran, they are bit players in the never ending tribal stuggle that is Yemen.

My point is they are not the only children that were alive that morning and dead that evening. But apparently in your thread those other children don't even deserve a mention until you were called out on it.

Why is this such a common response in every thread involving dead children?


I'm sure more that one gay guy was refused a cake today!

I'm sure more than one policitican from the left and right said something stupid!


Let's ban all threads that don't discuss every single thing that happened in this entire 24 hours shall we?

Nice and confrontational.
Just what we should expect from a Mod.

No, actually, I discuss these things daily in the real world, but thought this breaking news was worthy of a breaking news thread.



Saudis are very much involved.

Maybe you didn't bother to read the OP carefully!

I think we should stay out of this really. Let them kill off each other if they must. Its none of our business.

Not so really. They do not like us there unless they do not want to dirty their own hands. Why should the US or the UN go in and get called Imperialist and zionist crusaders?

Let them solve their own problems, don't interfere?

Have you ever interjected into an argument by two other people only to have them BOTH turn on you?

Same situation applies here.

Let people resolve their own differences.

Stay at home.

The sooner people realise they have to be accountable for their actions the better they will be to their neighbours.

The so called custodians of the two Mosque, who say one thing but do another. This Saudi filth and their wahhabi doctrine needs to be eradicated from the planet.

Of course, it doesn't matter until it happens in front of your doorstep.

Granting Asylum is different from letting them resolve their own differences.

Nobody (at least not me) is saying do not grant victims of this asylum, in fact I am very welcome and open to granting asylum to people who are persecuted and victims.

However, people should learn to resolve their own differences if we are to progress as a species at a high level of awareness.

Please, you only posted this "breaking new" because the Saudis were invoved. This single incident in decades of fighting you found important enough to post about. All the other civilians killed over the last few weeks, months, years, decades in Yemen were not news I guess. Civilians were dying before Iran began arming one side, civilians were dying before the Saudi's stepped in, and civilians will be dying long after the Saudis are done and Iran has lost interest. I know that does fit in with your smear the Saudis narative but, I like to deal in reality.

Casualties during times of war are inevitable...

However pointing out civilian casualties while intentionally ignoring the same from the other side is a bit disingenuous.

Only 9?

What gives? US weapons are capable of killing 25-30 on average...

They must not be using munitions purchased from US weapons depots.

That's an example of Corporate backstabbing typical of Saudi Arabia!

Please, don't tell me my reasoning for posting threads.

Maybe look at my thread history before you distort the boards with knowingly false information.



I've made many threads about children who have passed away.


Only one involves Saudi Arabia.



Don't put words in my mouth.

There was no reality in your post, just a personal attack.

Grow up, mod!!!
edit on 4-4-2015 by CharlieSpeirs because: (no reason given)



There is no favouritism.

You clearly skipped by my post on page 1 that admitted the UN don't know if the 70+ children are dead because of Saudi or Yemen...

I'm discussing what we do know.

What civilian casualties have Saudi Arabia lost?


You can pick sides in a war you know nothing about.

I'll just save my concerns those in the middle... As I did in the OP!
