HEADLINE: Saudi Led Air Strikes Kill Dozens of Yemeni Children

This news heading was in our main newspaper for one day. No following story. No breakdown of the horrendous heartache suffered by the parents and the shear horror of the Suadi action. Substituent the word "Yemeni: for American or Canadian or British. What would the reaction be? Imagine the outrage, the condemnation, the retaliation. 

The problem is that Yemeni children "are over there". Who cares. Just one of those "middle east" countries where they have always been killing each other anyway. It's similar to the 100 girls kidnapped by the Boko Harum. News for a day. Ho hum. 

Is the lack of moral outrage due to these children not being white? I'm just asking the question. It seems more and more that white children matter; non-white skinned children don't. Maybe this is harsh, but there is a great deal of truth to it.

At some point, some courageous politician is going to come forward and push for a real international war crimes against children tribunal. Brutalizing children and killing children in front of children results in these children growing up to become brutalizing adults. When will the madness stop.
