Would everybody just shut up about Yemen

Isn’t it funny how suddenly everyone is concerned with a foreign power bombing and invading a neighbour thousands of miles away, yet that is exactly what has been happening for nearly 8 years, but in a different part of the world.

The media and the politicians tell you you must focus on Ukraine now, and with simple binary options for who is good and who is bad. But why no focus on Yemen? And is it as simple as one side = good, the other = bad?

We discuss the horrific situation in Yemen, and give some of its complex history, and compare it to the situation in Ukraine, and its history of being a puppet state dominated by its neighbours too.

Of course it could all be a distraction. What exactly has come out in Covidland while everyone has been focused on Ukraine? Is it merely a cover for bad news from the vaccines?
