    Thumbs up Rand Welcomes Senate Debate on Ending U.S. Support for the War in Yemen

    From a press release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator and Senate Foreign Relations Committee member Rand Paul (R-KY) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted 63-37 to discharge S.J. Res. 54, which would end U.S. support for the war in Yemen, from the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee and bring it to the Senate floor for debate:

    I applaud the Senate for taking action today to ensure a long-overdue debate on the Senate floor over ending the United States’ unauthorized support for the devastating war in Yemen. With thousands upon thousands of innocent lives lost in Yemen, and millions living on the edge of famine, we must send a clear message that this is not what America stands for, and I welcome a robust debate on ending our involvement in the war, stopping arms sales to Saudi Arabia, and restoring Congress’ voice in foreign policy.

    Previously, Dr. Paul has led multiple bipartisan efforts to stand against U.S. involvement in the war in Yemen by blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Earlier this month, he forced a procedural vote on his resolution that would have blocked the sale of an estimated $300 million in high-explosive rocket artillery and associated training and support to Bahrain, a member of the Saudi-led coalition waging the war in Yemen.
