Hunger, disease have killed 85,000 children under 5 during Yemen war, Save the Children says

It’s interesting how the MSM never said a word about the Saudi war in Yemen for years, until MBS bumped off a WaPo journalist, and the media realized they could use anti-Saudi sentiment as a weapon against Trump, which is actually quite helpful if it shifts the discourse away from the previous Russiahate line toward a new Saudihate line.

This is a fortunate turn of events. Now, if only Israel would take a bonesaw to a WaPo journalist.
