A US congressman has warned that American troops could be prosecuted for providing military support to the Saudi war on Yemen.
Ted Lieu made the warning in a letter to US Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, saying the US government’s denial of target selection for Saudi airstrikes in Yemen does not excuse Washington from legal responsibilities.
“I find it deeply troubling that the US apparently has no advanced knowledge of what targets will be struck by jets that are refueled by US personnel with US tankers,” Lieu said in his letter.

Jewish voices from the past make mincemeat of Zionism and anti-Semitism
By Stuart Littlewood on November 5, 2016
“Zionism has always seemed to me to be a mischievous political creed, untenable by any patriotic citizen of the United Kingdom.” – Lord Montague
“Show me one time where a Jew was persecuted in any country because of his religion…. It´s always their impact on the political, social, or economic customs and traditions of the community in which they settle.” – Benjamin Freedman
by Stuart Littlewood
The latest anti-Semitism witch-hunt being conducted by the Zio-Inquisition in the UK is all hogwash if the statements of two leading Jews are to be believed.
One is the speech by successful Jewish businessman Benjamin Freedman at the Willard Hotel, Washington, in 1961. The other is a letter in 1917 by Lord Edwin Samuel Montague, a prominnent British Jew, disagreeing with the Balfour Declaration.
I had seen neither before. My attention was drawn to Freedman by reader comments to a recent article of mine on the Balfour Declaration (many thanks `Bill Rollinson´ and `frog´).
Freedman kicked off his his remarks at the Willard by saying that just before the elections of 1960 Senator Kennedy (afterwards President of the United States) went to New York and delivered an address to the Zionist Organization of America. “In that address…. he stated that he would use the armed forces of the United States to preserve the existence of the regime set up in Palestine by the Zionists who are now in occupation of that area.
“In other words, Christian boys are going to be yanked out of their homes, away from their families, and sent abroad to fight in Palestine against the Christian and Moslem Arabs who merely want to return to their homes. And these Christian boys are going to be asked to shoot to kill these innocent [Arab Palestinians] people who only want to follow out fifteen resolutions passed by the United Nations in the last twelve years calling upon the Zionists to allow these people to return to their homes.”

Barna vokser så fort opp
og de kommer til å lære så mange ting jeg aldri fikk høre om på skolen
Og de går i parken
og leter etter sin kjære
Det er bare livet som går sin vante gang
