After a \u0022shameful and unacceptable\u0022 vote by the U.S. Senate last week to kill a bill that would have halted the nation\u0026#039;s military support for a Saudi-led war in Yemen, the U.N. agency for children is warning about the likelihood of another deadly cholera outbreak.\u0022In a few weeks from now the rainy season will start again and without a huge and immediate investment, cholera will again hit Yemeni children.\u0022—Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF\u0022Let\u0026#039;s not fool ourselves. Cholera\u0026nbsp;is going to come back,\u0022 Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF\u0026#039;s regional director for the Middle East and North Africa,\u0026nbsp;said at a press conference in Jordan on Sunday.\u0022In a few weeks from now the rainy season will start again,\u0022 he warned, \u0022and without a huge and immediate investment, cholera will again hit Yemeni children.\u0022\u0022We are using endless time, energy, and money for issues that we should never have to negotiate. The lives of children should not be negotiable,\u0022 Cappelaere added, referencing the months his agency spent fighting for a vaccination program in Yemen. \u0022None of the parties in this war have shown for a single second any respect to the sacred principle of the protection of children.\u0022The cholera outbreak has stemmed from, as\u0026nbsp;Common Dreams\u0026nbsp;previously\u0026nbsp;reported\u0026nbsp;\u0022water and sanitation systems that have been bombed out of\u0026nbsp;commission by Saudi Arabian airstrikes that receive direct support from the U.S. military.\u0022 The humanitarian crisis has been exacerbated by Saudi blockades that prevent food and medical aid from reaching civilians.On Monday, the\u0026nbsp;International Rescue Committee (IRC) also warned of the massive public health crisis in Yemen and put responsibility for the disaster squarely at the feet of both the U.S. and U.K. governments, which have backed the Saudi assault on Yemen, one of the world\u0026#039;s poorest countries.\u0022The U.S.- and U.K.-backed Saudi-led coalition has bombed civilians and blocked the delivery of life-saving healthcare and medicine. This is a violation of international humanitarian law and indefensible,\u0022 said David Miliband, president and CEO of the IRC. \u0022The facts don\u0026#039;t lie: the U.S. and the U.K. government\u0026#039;s financial and policy choices that support the Saudi-led coalition are prolonging the suffering and deepening the schisms in Yemen.\u0022Since late April 2017, the World Health Organization has tallied more than a million suspected cases of cholera, an\u0026nbsp;acute diarrhoeal disease that is contracted by ingesting food or water contaminated with bacteria, and \u0022that can kill within hours if left untreated.\u0022 Children under the age of 5 represented nearly a third of the suspected cases in Yemen.Despite widespread devastation that has left Yemenis battling starvation in addition to diseases such as diphtheria and cholera, U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition has not ceased, and key members of the Trump administration, including Defense Secretary James \u0022Mad Dog\u0022 Mattis, continue to advocate for U.S. involvement.While 44 senators attempted last Tuesday to end U.S. military assistance to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval, President Donald Trump met with\u0026nbsp;Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) in D.C., who was on a \u0022whitewash tour\u0022 to bolster U.S. support for his country.
