Houthi rebels backed in Iran were fought by the Southi led coalition funded by the US.
At least 10,000 people were killed in the conflict, and seven million are in dire need of food assistance.

The US began supporting the Saudi-led coalition through a decision by then-US President Barack Obama, who cited the Authorisation for Use of Military Force (AUMF) to justify US involvement.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has done the same.

Listen, i believe that not all actions were acceptable by the US or any side in this case, but this back up is required to keep a balance of power between Saudi Arabia and Iran, so to deny a possible suspicion of war between Yemen's backed up government by Iran and Saudi Arabia, if the original government is not backed by foreign powers. The US is trying to keep a balance between the Saudis and the Iranians, to keep to their own sphere's of influence. Saudis protecting the peninsula and Iran in the Middle East and Central Asia.

Guess what? Not to be mean or anything. But nobody cares here in the State nor Europe or Asia. No one care for a small poor countries like Yemen.

You said Yeman in crisis. But it fallen on deaf ears out here in the west and most of world. Let's face it no one will care for a poor country. That's just the truth....
