Biden ends US military aid to Saudi Arabia in Yemen conflict

Joe Biden ordered an end of US support for Saudi Arabia’s offensive in Yemen against the Houthi rebels. The war in Yemen began during the Obama administration. Iran and Saudi Arabia are seen as the real combatants in the conflict. Biden said the war must end:

This war has to end, and to underscore our commitment we are ending all American support for offensive operations in the war in Yemen, including relevant arm sales.

Biden reassured the Saudis that the US will still support Saudi Arabia against assaults from Iranian forces:

At the same time, Saudi Arabia faces missile attacks, UAV (drone) strikes and other threats from Iranian-supplied forces in multiple countries. We’re going to continue to support and help Saudi Arabia defend its sovereignty and its territorial integrity and its people.”

Timothy Lenderking, a career foreign service officer, was appointed as US Special Envoy to Yemen by Biden to help “end the war in Yemen, a war that created humanitarian and strategic catastrophe.”

Lenderking served as deputy assistant Secretary of State for Iran, Iraq, and Regional Multilateral Affairs in the Near East Bureau at the U.S. Department of State during the Trump administration.

According to The Independent, the nearly six-year war has devastated Yemen: Tens of thousands of civilians have died in the nearly six-year conflict in the poorest Arab country between the Houthis, a rebel group that controls much of the countryside, and a Saudi-led coalition backing the internationally recognized government in Aden.

The civil war in Yemen became a proxy war between regional powerhouses. Iran backs the Houthi rebels who are Shiite Muslims, and Saudi Arabia backs the Yemen government, which is Sunni Muslim. More than 127,000 people have been killed, and the conflict has displaced millions.

The Trump administration designated the Houthis a terrorist organization and imposed sanctions effective January 19, 2021. Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement that Ansarallah (the Houthis) deserved the designation because of their behavior: “If Ansarallah did not behave like a terrorist organization, we would not designate it as one.”

It is unknown if Iran will end their support for the Houthis.

  1. when you elect a stupid man you get stupid ideas. Says a lot about the democrat voters just a bunch of fools.

    1. Why do you think they named NINE people to prosecute Trunp in the second impeachment. One wasn’t smart enough.

  2. Does any one really think Biden is doing the questioning etc?
    He has not a clue what he is doing and I’m sick of all the crap
    coming From his mouth! Trump, we need you and soon!!!!

      1. With all hell that took place in the Vietnam
        war so many service people of my age really
        don’t understand the current comments from
        the president on down.
        Their present’s in halls of this great country
        is quit shocking day after day where really
        un-related decision’s are just thrown out there
        to if any liberals bite on it and they do and then
        comes the anger at real shoot from the hip begins.
        Their several people on board at present on Dem’s
        side of the things that vote as their told.

    1. So true. In 3 weeks he has devastated our country and doesn’t have a clue what he is doing. The radical left has taken over and communism is on the horizon

      1. He does know. He’s doing what his handlers tell him he needs to do and what Kamel Toes wants him to do so that she won’t have to step in as his replacement.

    2. Agree, We are in big trouble. Pipe Line and jobs. Now stopping the drilling for oil and gas on federal land.
      He sure don’t care of our economy. Our National dept has sky rocket . Illegals coming in country bad news Our protection is gone no border or walls. all in a month. Sad no turning back you got what you voted for.

    3. I have seen two pictures of him side by side, and there are some features that are different, like his ears. Couple other things too. That proves that there is a clone of him that can probably speak much better than the original.

      1. Arleen, I have it on good authority that Biden has a clone. You are right! That is why sometimes ‘he’ sounds literate and other times totally out of it.

  3. This is all due really to Obama and his support for the extremist Muslim fundamentalists (the Shiites). He (Obama) has always support them over the Sunni group, so you could have predicted this with a 100 percent certainty. Obama did everything in his power to topple the Saudi regime and clearly we see Biden will do so as well as he is
    just Obama’s puppet.

      1. What ever comes out of his filthy mouth is what he hears from ‘his ear pieces. He is not intelligent. He is the Dems puppet and they tell him what to say, what to do etc. The world now is like it has never ever been before.Prison is waiting Joe!!

    1. You hit the nail right on the head. Your are right. Obama must be stopped. He is out to destroy the great country and will if not stopped.

  4. I’ am telling you right now that this communist regime in the WH along with the deep state want a NUCLEAR conflict and if this crap keeps up it will happen soon!

    1. I hope the first Direct hit is Washington DC, Second New York, Third Chicago and last California and Washington state. Trouble is it will fry us too!

  5. WHEN YOU RIGGE A ELECTION YOU GET A STUPID FOOL AS PRESIDENT >
    A MAN THAT SET IN HIS BASEMENT AND CAN NOT FINISH A SENTENCE
    HELL KNOW>;

    1. Militia time is probably coming sooner than latter. Americans will soon no longer put up with this BULl_HIT communist regime we currently have.

  6. No longer sure who is running this country. Is it the Chinese or is it the Iranians? It sure isn’t “We the people.”

  7. The Republicans should start procedures to impeach Obama and then file charges against him and Killary. Biden is going to do so much damage to our country and our relationships with other countries.

  8. Wasn’t it lead from behind Joe that said he was going to strengthen foreign relations with out allies? How can he do that by throwing the closest we have to an ally in that region under the bus? Meanwhile, he makes overtures to the biggest supporters of terror and warmongering threw appeasement and empty promises (Iran). Biden is a disaster for world peace and unity.

  9. CHINA joe is not running the show. Don’t blame me I voted for Trump. I did some research and saw what he did NOT do for fifty years in government. When obSama picked him for VP I knew then he was all talk and no show.
    We all need to pray for the United States as long as China joe and camel face heels up are in politics.

  10. Think about this Biden’s recent flurry of EO’s dramatically cut our domestic oil & natural gas production and made us dependent on foreign Oil ie: Saudi Arabia. Then he pisses off the Saudi’s by pulling the plug on beneficial, Joint Military Operations! Like Obama said quote: “Joe has the ability to Fck-Up anything”.

  11. Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Harris, Schumer… they are all domestic terrorists! Like all Democrats they are what they accuse others of being. Biden is being complicit with the morons in the WH with him that keep publishing executive actions for the brain dead president to sign. This is all bad and when the tide shifts the GOP better step up and do the honors of restoring our nation before these low lifes ruin it all.

  12. So now Saudi Arabia will buy weapons from either Russia or China–good going, Joe. Just send that money elsewhere, kill American jobs, and accomplish nothing internationally except to alienate an ally.

  13. Obama is Satan whispering in Biden’s ear! Biden is just a puppet blathering anything that is fed to him!

  14. When is Biden and the Democrats going to defend our sovereignty and our territorial integrity (borders) and our people? Is the goal to turn us into a welfare state?

  15. Biden is worst president in history he does not need to be remembered wipe him from history. He a complete idiot,and a sorry president lets hope he goes to the beach and a shark will end him

  16. Dementia etc.He is only a puppet with his handlers
    telling him what to say and do. He is a disgusting being, notice I did
    not say human being. He needs to go back to his basement and leave
    AMERICA and AMERICANS alone. What a nut job he is and his
    handlers. God please step in . We need America back with TRUMP!

  17. We should start the impeachment of BIDEN, SCHUMER, PELOSI, “SACK OF SCHIFF” AT ONCE. THIS GIVES OBAMA A SECOND OPPORTUNITY TO TEAR DOWN AMERICA ALL OVER THE WORLD. When rigged machines do our elections our REPUBLIC is doomed. Let BIDEN feel the 7/24/365 arrows all coming at him constantly and see how long he stands up. President Trump was the most effective President in the past 100 years, since Lincoln. Trump was even better than Reagan and Reagan was great but did not have Trump’s drive and energy. May GOD have mercy on us once-proud poor AMERICANS.

  18. BIDEN could not allow the peace that President Trump started around Israel, every president since Truman has tried and only President Trump was brilliant enough to start peace around Isreal. Thank You, President Trump. If you had the additional 4 years that you won many great peace deals would have been done. Saving our American military. Now we are in for talk, talk, and anti-American deals. How many in the first 2 weeks?

  19. I just love how people love to sit back, down a beer while pissing and moaning over the crap going on today!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    Please, don’t make an excuse not to make the calls, excuses as they say are like A-holes, we all got one!

  20. First the American people, then the American Military, now one of our allies; who’s he going to stab in the back next?
    We won’t have to wait long will we?

  21. J. Biden needs to be removed before he gets us in another war. Trump had been working for peace now this clown destroys everything because Trump accomplished peace . Something he and Obama could not do even giving millions to terrorists.

  22. Biden administration should stay out of foreign politics. They are going to have enough problems fighting off the people who already hate us. There will be new foreign Terror Attacks Here Soon Enough
    Combine that with the Civil War about to break out here. Plus the new 3rd political party and the Rise of the Dormant but Still Active White Power People. He isn’t going to know who to fight off first in a couple of months.
