Never Forget (Doctors Without Borders)

I have long been disgusted to be an American

but I am now officially disgusted to be a human being,

the worst, most destructive,

barbaric and cannibalistic species on the planet

as I hear the news that

yet again

YET AGAIN,

American weapons

dropped by America or her henchmen

have leveled another hospital

specifically, another Doctors Without Borders hospital

this time in Yemen

this time a cholera treatment center…

in a nation where there is a cholera epidemic

because of the barbaric bombing with American bombs,

in a nation bombed back to the stone age

with those American bombs already…

hospital after hospital after hospital,

doctor after doctor after doctor

civilian after civilian after civilian.

 

It was the Saudis this time,

but it might as well have been us,

it basically was us

what, with our weapons

and our blessing

and our encouragement.

America would be doing this

only not even America,

not even Israel

could get away with being this barbaric

To indiscriminately slaughter this many Muslims,

well, it’s best to have Arabs do that for you

it plays out better in the news…

but what if it was mostly Yemeni Jews being killed?

or Christians?

What then?

Would the silence still be deafening?

 

How many Yemeni people

do the Saudis have to slaughter,

how many people have to starve to death

or die from preventable diseases

before the world demands a stop

to this fucking genocide?

 

How long can America hide behind Saudi pilots?

and how quickly we forget

that this isn’t the first time

Uncle Sam has let Saudi pilots

kill thousands of civilians…
