The wealth of the world is distributed in a highly inconsistent and unequal manner. Some countries, like Yemen, are left in a position where there are people starving and dying. Meanwhile, many other countries do not suffer from that issue. Countries like the United States with the means to help are morally obligated to provide aid.
Most importantly even if the US decides that it can not afford to send aid, they need to encourage their citizens and private charitable organizations to send aid in to Yemen as a way of setting an example for other countries. Many countries look to see what the US will do before making a decision.
Yes, powerful countries such as the U.S. have a responsibility to aid in crises such as this one because it has the ability to fix problems much faster. If the U.S. provided assistance, there would be no telling what could be done in the long run. It would dramatically help.
It is Utilitarian for the US to provide aid, but not a responsibility. The Responsibility of the US (by US I am referring to the United States Government) has just one responsibility, the welfare of American citizens. Although providing aid may strengthen ties between the US and Yemen, as well as providing good PR for the US government, the effects of such aid on US citizens should be weighed first.

No, powerful countries such as the US do not have a responsibility to aid in foreign crisis'. This is because I believe that we, as a country, have enough trouble nationally without involving ourselves internationally. I think that it is important to have strong relations and morals regarding other countries, but we cannot always be the ones to save other countries, we need to save ourselves.
