Again, we see a human catastrophe that didn’t have to be. This is yet another man made disaster quite preventable, if not totally avoidable.

Yemen is one of the most destitute countries on earth. It cannot manufacture the weapons it has, but worse is, that Yemen couldn’t have imagined  the devastating ordnance rained upon them.

This war, poverty and pestilence that the human race tolerates, and will not shed a tear for, is unconscionable. It will end as all wars do. But meanwhile, we lose a little more of our ability to empathize. Eventually, we won’t be human. Some kind of despicable monsters that inhabit what’s left of a sick planet, be our future most probable. Thanks to The Guardian for publishing this heartbreaking article.
