Hassan El-Tayyab talks about various movements to stop the U.S.-backed war in Yemen, and what we can all do to help. Tayyab explains that millions of civilians there are on the brink of the worst famine in 100 years. So far political will has not really been behind ending the war, but following the murder of Jamal Khashoggi things may finally be changing. Tayyab’s organization is tracking the progress of two congressional resolutions that would invoke the War Powers Act to end American involvement in the war. If the President declares an end to U.S. support, says Tayyab, the war would just about end immediately.
Discussed on the show:
- Just Foreign Policy
- War Powers Resolution
- Jamal Khashoggi
- “US supplied bomb that killed 40 children on Yemen school bus” (The Guardian)
- “11/5/18 Scott Paul on Yemen” (Libertarian Institute)
