Congress Acts on War in Yemen

Fearing that weapons supplied to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emarites by the United States could be falling into the hands of known terrorist organization, Congress has passed resolutions to prevent military intervention in Yemen. President Trump is expected to veto this decision, as he and his administration believe that supplying weapons to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen is the best way to combat the political conflict. Concern remains that these weapons are being transferred to groups such as al-Qaeda.

Impact: Care should be taken to ensure support is reaching the correct places in the Middle East. It is of crucial importance that US-supplied weapons do not get transferred to terrorist groups. The Trump administration should consider the findings and decision of Congress before deciding to veto the measure.
