Where is the International Outcry?

Yemen Town of Saada

I have just received this email from Naomi Ragen:

Have you heard about the Saudis sending war planes to indiscriminately bombcivilians in Yemen because one of their soldiers was killed by a Yemenirebel who happen to be Sunni? It happened on November 5, a few days ago.

According to the article on Yahoo news: "Saudi jets dropped bombs on crowdedareas including a local market in the northern province of Saada," Hawthi spokesman Mohammed Abdel-Salam told The Associated Press. "They claim they are targeting al-Hawthis, but regrettably they are killing civilians like the government does." He said the attacks were followed by hundreds of artillery shells from the border. "So far, three killed have been pulled out of the rubble, including a woman and a child who perished when their houses were bombed and burned down," said Abdel-Salam.

What? You mean there hasn't been a U.N. outcry? No commission has been appointed? It's not headlines in the New York Times, or the LA Times,or CNN? What you haven't heard about it at all? What if it was Israeli planes dropping bombs on terrorists in Lebanon? Here, the Saudis claim the al-Hawthis rebels killed ONE Saudi soldier.
