11/16/17 Scott Paul on the latest devastating Saudi blockade in Yemen

Senior Humanitarian advisor at OxFam America Scott Paul returns to the show to discuss the latest developments in the U.S.-Saudi war in Yemen. Paul explains that the situation has gone from bad to gruesome with the latest Saudi blockade following the Houthi attempted missile strike of the Saudi airport at Ridyah. According to Paul seven million people are attempting to survive on one meal a day while cholera cases continue to soar. Paul says that aid is the first major step, but that a ceasefire and a political process are the only things that can allow for the market to provide for the Yemeni people.
