The two children shown in the photo are Abdu and Marwan. Their father was Mohammed Nasser Thuknah. These two boys were targeted, along with their entire family, in Bakil Almir, Hajjah, in an area of Yemen bordering Saudi Arabia.

12 members of their family were massacred in a cluster bomb strike. Their father, mother, siblings and all their close relatives perished. Abdu and Marwan survived for a further two weeks until they, also, succumbed to their terrible wounds.

Those cluster munitions were supplied by the US to the Saudi regime in the knowledge that they would be used in such a manner. Cluster munitions can contain chemicals such as Napalm or White Phosphorous. The wounds and burns on these children suggest that a chemical agent had been used.

The US is by default a war criminal. They supply these lethal and hideous WMDs, and their operatives are present in the Riyadh command and control centre when targets are chosen. The UK is also an accessory to murder, standing in the same control tower and supplying identified cruise missiles that have been used on civilian structures with no regard for human life.

When you look upon the images of two children who did no wrong, yet were brutalized in such a way, ask yourself what sort of people would do this to the young? It will be found that those responsible, either for dropping the bombs or supplying them, are inhuman. They care nothing for innocent life, be that life adult, child or baby.

Those who are to blame for the murder of Abdu and Marwan are the same people who run your country. They are the same people who take your taxes and spend them on weapons of destruction. They are the same people who have been committing atrocities, such as this, for as long as they have been able.

And they are the same specimens of inhumanity who will continue to engage in the murder, the torture, the persecution, the oppression and the wholesale slaughter of innocent life unless we, the people of the world, come to our senses and realize that we have a moral and ethical responsibility to stop them… by whatever means are necessary.
