Why has the Western press broken its silence on Yemen?

I had to do a double take today when a story appeared in my newsfeed from the Guardian, titled “Questions mount over botched Yemen raid approved by Trump”. Seriously, since when does the liberal press give a fuck about Yemen? Apparently since Hillary lost the election it is now safe to talk about this monstrous war, which would have surely continued regardless of who was commander in chief.

Let’s recap.

More than a few genuine tears have been shed for the poster-child president of the liberal-left as he exits the political stage for the final time. While spectators spectated and protestors protested, others looked on in panic and confusion, caught up in the media froth and bubble and the gushing and sighing of pundits. But is the moment really worth all the fuss? As America welcomes its 45th POTUS, an awkward, graceless, insensitive, vulgar populist with exceedingly bad hair, a look back at the eight year legacy of America’s first black president is in order.

In an awkward social situation I was recently challenged to debate the proposition that Islam is not a religion, but a political ideology.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan
