Starvation in Yemen

School children in al-Zailaea, a village in the western Yemeni province of Houdieda: UNICEF reports Yemen has the highest rate of chronic malnutrition in the world with nearly 60% of children diagnosed as stunted. UNICEF, which mostly confines its activities to hand-wringing, jeremiads, & fund-raising, also strongly suggests that the food shortages, increased food prices, & lack of access to education are due to protests against the Saleh dictatorship. Such idiocy would explain why UNICEF should stick to pretty Christmas cards & stop covering for Saleh’s dictatorship & why they don’t demand an end to US bombing in Yemen. (Photo by Khaled Abdullah)
