Biden promised to help end Yemen war. Yet he continues to supply Saudia Arabia with weapons used by Saudis in that war. The US also is providing maintenance to Saudi Air Force*.
I suppose as long as no body bags of Americans arrive; the killing will continue indefinitely.

Some mild pressure from congress has occurred. So far nada from Biden.

But pressure from Pro Saudi Arabia lobbyists under the guise of "The Turkish Democracy Project".
https://responsiblestatecraft.org/2021/11/26/dark-money-netw...
a political advocacy group launched this summer with the stated goal of promoting democracy in Turkey, has the surprising characteristic of having no Turkish members on its leadership board.

Despite having no actual Turks publicly affiliated with the group, the Turkish Democracy Project boasts a roster heavy with hawkish former U.S. public officials and diplomats with close ties to Israel and the Gulf Arab states, including former Bush administration counterterrorism official Frances Townsend, former U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, and President Donald Trump’s famously aggressive former national security adviser John Bolton.

UANI and CEP have had questions raised about their aims and sources of funding, including whether they receive financial support from foreign governments and political figures.


And what is occurring in the main stream media regarding Yemen war?

Yemen conflict all but ignored by the West
Atrocities are being committed against an innocent Yemeni population on a scale as serious as Syria and Iraq. But why doesn’t this story get as much media attention as those conflicts? Gouri Sharma reports.

It's not that the conflict isn't covered, but when it is, news outlets tend to focus on the 'Sunni-majority Saudi Arabia versus the Shia Iran proxy war' narrative which overlooks the country's deepening humanitarian crisis.

Since the bombing began, the UN estimates that more than 10,000 innocent people have been killed, 69 percent of the country is in need of humanitarian assistance, and three million people have been forced to flee their homes.

The biggest known player involved in Yemen is Saudi Arabia, who has been carrying out its military campaign with arms brought from the US and Britain.
