President Obama should use his influence to encourage all sides in Yemen to work toward a political solution to prevent a wider conflict and to give Yemen a chance at stability. He should evacuate US citizens in Yemen who are currently in danger.
The Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen threatens to turn what has been a civil war into a wider regional struggle involving Iran. It could also destroy any hope of stability in Yemen.  On Tuesday, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights warned that Yemen is on the brink of collapse. 
Rather than bombing – which has already killed more than 40 civilians in a single strike  - Saudi Arabia should be using its power and influence to pursue diplomatic negotiations, which offer the only hope of a durable solution. President Obama should use his influence with Saudi Arabia to encourage all sides to work toward a political solution to prevent a wider conflict and to give Yemen a chance at stability. Meanwhile, President Obama should evacuate US citizens in Yemen who are in danger – as other countries have. 
Urge President Obama and Members of Congress to press for a political solution in Yemen and to evacuate Americans in danger by signing our petition.
