senate Bill S. Joint Res. 7

Should American Forces Helping the Saudi Coalition Fight Iran-Backed Rebels in Yemen Be Withdrawn?

Argument in favor

Congress never authorized the participation of U.S. military forces in the conflict in Yemen between the Saudi coalition and the Iran-backed Houthi rebels. Those troops should be withdrawn.

The Founders specifically gave Congress, the branch closest to the people, the power to declare war. Yet we’ve been in the Yemeni Civil War since 2015 without the go-ahead from Congress. It was unconstitutional then, and it’s unconstitutional now.

We should divert 100% of our military budget to schools, healthcare, a Green New Deal, and building infrastructure. Troops out of everywhere, now.

Argument opposed

The U.S. has a clear national interest in helping the Saudi coalition defeat the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. Requiring the removal of the troops providing that assistance is ill-advised.

WHEN THIS ILL ADVISED RESOLUTION IS POSED MY NO REMAINS 👎🏻 I still remain in firmly strongly opposed to the Ill 🤒 advised resolution👎🏻 It’s becoming more and more apparent that Democratic members of Congress are more in tone with their Party’s Political agenda than the needs of our nations national interests. This Senator Sander’s Ill 🤒 advised resolution which would direct the president to remove U.S. Armed Forces from the conflict in Yemen between the Saudi-backed coalition and the Iran-backed Houthi rebels within 30 days — except for forces engaged in operations directed at Al Qaeda. U.S. troops have been assisting the coalition in an advisory and training role and providing aerial refueling assistance, which would be sadly prohibited by this bill. The U.S. has a clear national interest in helping the Saudi coalition defeat the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. Requiring the removal of the troops providing that assistance is ill-advised.

Why in the world would we stop supporting our close Allies, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, in their fight against the evil Iranian proxy Houthis?

    The USA should not be helping Saudi Arabia with anything, much less military operations. This is a country that lies to us continually, killed a permanent resident and journalist and was involved in 911 but we are still supposed to support them? Hell no. Not with my tax dollars.

    The Yemeni people have done nothing to harm us, and we should not be complicit in one of the greatest humanitarian crises on the face of the Earth. We should remove all of our involvement from that conflict immediately. And that includes no more weapon sales.

    Yemen is an immense human tragedy that needs to be prosecuted by an International Court for the war crimes inflicted upon that nation by these interested parties.

    Withdraw all Americans from fighting for Saudi Arabia. This is not our war and it’s tough already here trying to connect with each other. Fiery as I can be about what’s right and Fierce as heck because we have the wrong side of the Yemen war. Catch me

    The overbearing U.S. presence in the middle east should end immediately. There is absolutely no reason to interfere with the affairs of others, especially when it means killing people who have nothing to do with the policymaking process of any of the countries involved.

    This is for Congress to decide and this is a totally immoral war. Yemeni children are starving and dying of disease as they have been for months. Do we really want to be a nation that kills children? We need to stop and get out.

    It’s Congress’ job to decide if the U.S. involves itself in a military conflict or not. This is an illegal war that was not authorized by Congress and therefore we should no longer be participating in it. The Saudi-led coalition has also committed war crimes and has fueled a humanitarian crisis that has led to thousands of civilians being killed and millions more being displaced as well as mass starvation. We need to pull out all our troops, and urge the Saudis to pull out and sanction them if necessary!
