The United States in another Middle-East civil war For months, State Department officials and a few members of Congress have warned that America's at risk of violating international law. Until today, it was all about US military aid to Saudi Arabia's bombing of civilian targets in Yemen, its tiny neighbor already devastated by civil war.

Now Iran is sending ships to the region -- escalating an already tense international situation while a humanitarian disaster unfolds on the ground.

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
