If you haven’t heard about this proposed arms sale, you’re not alone. While it hasn’t drawn much attention, it comes amidst numerous allegations of apparent war crimes and gross violations of human rights, including the Saudi-led coalition bombing another school, and a fourth Doctors Without Borders hospital in Yemen where 17 months of conflict has resulted in the displacement of 3 million people and a quarter of the population is on the verge of famine.

While Saudi Arabia is dropping the bombs, the U.S. is often supplying them and providing other support for the war. As Senator Chris Murphy pointed out, “there’s an American imprint on every civilian life lost in Yemen.”

But thankfully there’s something we can do to help stop this deal from moving forward. Senators Chris Murphy (CT) and Rand Paul (KY) are teaming up to introduce legislation to block this new $1.5 billion U.S. package of tanks, ammunition, and machine guns to Saudi Arabia.

Join us Monday September 12th at 4pm ET for a live discussion on the ongoing war in Yemen, proposed Saudi Arms Sale and what we can do to encourage a peaceful, diplomatic settlement to end the war.

As the Vestibular used for balance in the ear also describes other empty spaces in the body which i think when related to vestibule whoms meaning describes an empty space such as passage, hall, or room between the outer door and the interior of a building could be relative in furthing a simplified understanding of how the brains anatomy works with regards to our balance of perception and the balance of atmospherical awareness because the atmoshere that supports us is also a space between the earth and the universe so believe it to be of high importance to the welfare of understanding the development of certain issues. ???
