4/5/19 UPDATE: Invoking the 1973 War Powers Act, Congress voted today to to end US military assistance to Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen. Of course shithead will probably veto it but it’s a step in the right direction.

While researching something completely different I came across this excellent blog, UKGSer.com. Basically a BMW GS bike touring bulletin board/fan club. People post videos and photographs of their road trips from all over the world. 

The war in Yemen, nearing its fifth year, has left millions on the brink of starvation, creating what the UN called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

In November 2010, traveling by motorbike, Tsiklonaut captured the essence of Yemen and its beautiful people in a snapshot happier times.

Still though, why let one’s ability to influence the outcome of this tragedy stand in the way of $110 billion eh? Shithead.
